I am in Love....

with this Jacket:

Let's just hope it will fit after all my Thanksgiving yummies...I tried it on in the store, but I wanted to order the tall...and I have been eating lots-o-food while I have been at home. I am however working out with my trainer tomorrow, so that should offset at least one turkey sandwich right?

Giving Thanks

I made the drive home to WV yesterday afternoon. I got off work early and was able to make it home right around 10 PM. I also stopped in Lexington for Chipotle which I had not had in a long time. Yum!

I worked out with my trainer today. He said my haircut looked great! I am working out with him again on Saturday! Yeah!

So there are so many things I am thankful for. Family, friends, health, my job, and the list goes on and on.

One thing over the past two weeks or so I have realized I am extremely thankful for is my confidence. I mean I still have my days where I question everything I do and feel down in the dumps, but those days are few and far between. While I may have gained a few pounds this year, my confidences is high. And you know what? I am ok with few pond gain because I know that can be easily remedied, but confidence (at least in my case) is something that I can't measure in gains or losses each week. It just happens.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Music Monday- Iron and Wine

Since I had such a good time at the show last night I thought I would share and Iron and Wine song: Flightless Bird, American Mouth. This song also happens to be on the Twilight soundtrack...Some other good ones by him include Boy With a Coin and his cover of the Postal Services Such Great Heights.


Iron and Wine

So yesterday afternoon I get a text from a friend asking me if I wanted a free ticket to Iron and Wine. I made sure that I would actually get to sit with the friend and it wasn't some random single. I would, so I was in. He calls me about 30 minutes later to let me know that his boss wants to meet us and his co-worker for drinks and apps at the Palm. Meh. I had never been there before. Maybe it would be different if I had a gotten an entree. Calamari, lobster nachos, and asparagus rolled in steak oh my! We head over to the Ryman for the show. How could I pass up a show at the Ryman??? I LOVR the Ryman. We get our tickets and they are literally in my favorite spot. Pretty much the same spot I have sat for Swell Season, Smashing Pumpkins, and a whole slew of other shows. The opener was Blitzen Trapper- An Oregon band who I probably need to give another listen to. My friend's co-worker comes back to our seats and hands us backstage passes. Really? What have I done to deserve all this good fortune. So normally things like passes aren't too terribly exciting because it can be super awkward back there. But this was the Ryman and I was just the slightest bit curious to see it. It was cool, kind of small. I had a beer. Met Samuel Bean. The band manager was from WV and we bonded over Jesco White. A little bit later we all headed to a bar where we met more people and drank more beer. So with all that said I got home at 2 AM and the gym was not in my future. But I am ok, with skipping this morning ;)
