Thursday Things to Love

It's been a while since I've done a Thursday Things to Love post, but I also want to spin it as Thankful Thursday for today. I'm going to link up with my good friend Cami over at First Day of My Life for Thankful Thursday.

I couldn't get the button to work - sorry Cami!

1. New workout music -
This is essential in my life right now. I'm trying so hard to be a good girl and stay on the grind with my healthy eating and working out lately. My friend Jody has compiled a huge list of suggestions for me that I still haven't finished going through yet - thanks Jody :) But I did want to share with you some of the new songs that are really helping me get through my workouts these days. If you are like me, and you need upbeat dance type of songs for your workouts then maybe this will help you. I'll be sure to update you when I finish going through Jody's list!
  • Jay-Z & Kanye West - Watch the Throne album - the whole thing is great!
  • Racks - Y.C. I am oddly obsessed with this song
  • Dance - Big Sean hands down my favorite right now
  • Workout - J.Cole
  • Old School Ludacris from Back for the First Time album
2. Beautifully perfect weather lately -
Beautiful Norris Lake
This also helps me get through my workouts when I can change it up and go outside. It's March 1 and today the forecast here is 71. If this keeps up then I will be on the lake by April - bring it!

3. Mardi Growl this weekend -
Mardi Growl is an annual doggy parade in Downtown Knoxville that honors Mardi Gras. This will be Tilly's first time (I will be sure to post pictures), but I did take my old dog, also a Pom Roxy, twice and she loved it. The parade includes dogs dressed up in costumes, and they also have awards for best costumes and vendors set up with goodies, clothes, food. It's fun!

4. The Hunger Games - Just did a post about it this week. I'm in obsession mode. I'm halfway through Catching Fire the 2nd book in the Hunger Games Trilogy right now. I feel like everyone is buzzing with HG talk, so I'm glad that I can finally be included. I can't wait for the movie to come out in a couple of weeks!
5. Girls Nights -
Girls nights are one of the true joys during the work week. I'm having one tonight to drink some margaritas with 2 of my very best ex-coworkers girlfriends! Me and some of the girls that I currently work with are planning a trip to Spirited Art in a couple weeks and I can't wait to see how they transform  my non-artistic abilities into a masterpiece. This is the painting we are going to attempt when we go - I highly doubt mine like end up looking like this...
