Three Things Thursday

1. As most of you know, I am a children's librarian. I have been working at the library in some capacity since I was 14 (volunteering). Well last night, I ran with one of my former "Story Time Kids." She found me on facebook a couple of years ago when I first got my account (several of my former "library kids" are now facebook friends and tons of Moms). She is now in her 20s, engages, and working on her associates degree in child development! She knew from FB that I ran, and so we decided to go out together. She is just starting out, so our plan was to walk one lap 1.25 miles, and the run/walk the second lap. Unfortunately, it got too dark and we didn't get to finish, but we have fun...and hopefully I have a new running buddy!

2. This week, That Tops Lady, has really kept me on track with my water. Each day we have msged each other on facebook as we finish our waters. It has been great! She is working so hard...and really inspiring me with her constant motivation!What's funny is I know TOPS from the library too! Her kids used to visit me at the library, too! But now she lives a million miles away! BOO!

3. This weekend, Tommy and I are going away for the weekend! Last Spring, we purchased an online deal for a night at a Bed and Breakfast about an hour and a half way. I have never stayed in a B&B or visited this town. I also reserved our stay for the town's Annual Host of Christmas Past Festival. I am super excited! I am not sure what all to expect. But I am excited!


  1. always say the nicest things about me! Thank you! (I have the big head now)

    How weird it is that you and I are BOTH going to stay in B&B's this weekend and that they are BOTH an hour and a half away. Weird!

    Have fun, my friend!

  2. Oh, I have not been to a B&B in so many years - enjoyed the town, saw the sights, had a lovely drink and a wonderful sunset - hope you enjoy your trip!!

    Staying MOtivated MO

  3. Have the funnest time ever this weekend - get lots of rest!!

    Stay focused!

  4. It's so nice to have people to run with! I miss my Chicago running crew, for sure.

  5. How neat that you ran with an old Story Time Kid!

    I hope you guys had a great weekend. Weekend trips to places not too far away are underrated.
