Thursday Thoughts

{Photo from Happy Things, as usual}
 I have a lot on my mind today, which means I need to word vomit my thoughts all over you. You don't mind do you?

Grab a bucket:

I'm obsessed with Happy Things on Tumblr. It's totally awesome. And it makes me happy. That's the point, right?

I sometimes like to think about my life as a large collection of boiling pots. I find that when one pot begins to boil over, it affects the rest and creates a mess. And it makes it difficult for me to write. And be funny. I'm having a boiling pot moment today, which is why I'm just vomiting random thoughts instead of forming coherent ones.

My husband and I ran a 10K together on Sunday. It was 45 degrees outside and windy. And when I say "together" it's what I mean--we ran the entire 6.2 miles side by side. It was a rare sight, because my better half typically accuses me of things like "slowing him down." It was also hilarious, mostly because our running style is the polar opposite of our living life style. I'm intense and crazy in real life; my husband is laid-back and calm. When we run, we turn into one another. Needless to say, he "encouraged" us to run the 10K in 52 minutes and I "encouraged" us not to run so hard that we vomited on the finish line. You culd say it worked out nicely.

I want to eat, drink and make everything pumpkin-related. I'm obsessed. My most recent obsession: the world's easiest pumpkin muffins. Seriously, it's just one box of spice cake mix and one large (or two 'regular' cans) can of pumpkin. Mix. Put in muffin pan. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Then, try not to eat them all in one sitting. If you're crazy like I am, you can melt down candy corn and use it as frosting.

I just recently stopped getting expensive salon highlights and starting dying my hair at home instead. It's easier, faster and less scary than I could have imagined. Oh, and cheaper. Much cheaper. I used this and it's seriously the best hair color for blondes I have ever used. My hair actually looks and feels better and I have a strong interest in giving the fine people at L'Oreal an award or a high five for their awesomeness. Either way works.
