Thoughts on Thursday


It's been a while since I've linked up with Carolyn for her Thoughts on Thursday link up so I decided to give it a go!

#1. It's like a whole new feeling when you finally start feeling better after being sick. Being sick...sucks. I woke up feeling much better today than the past 4 super long days and can't wait to get back to the gym. It's like a whole new me! Anyone else feel this way?

#2. true life...I want to be Kate Middleton.

 so pretty...such class.


Don't act like you don't want to order these stamps...

sigh.

#3. Ever since I got my iphone, which I love by the way, I've been perfecting it's layout (like rearranging all the apps so each screen is colorful..) and making sure I have the best apps {mainly free ones}. Why have the iphone without using the free apps?! So since in the past I have asked you guys for suggetions on what apps to get - it's my turn to share what apps I like and what are on my celly.

My favorite iPHONE apps-

~Camera +, this is the only app I've paid for..it's only .99 and totally worth it. It gives you better zoom, scenes, borders, color adjustments, etc.
~Urbanspoon, I have already used this a ton for when we travel. Easy access to restaurant's around you, menu's, and directions.
~Flixster, most of you know what this is already. great movie app.
~Kik messanger, it's basically Blackberry's version of BBM but not as good.
~AroundMe, this one might be my favorite so far. Based on your location, it will show you the closest coffee shops, banks/ATM's, bars, gas stations, movie theatres, parking, etc. Very nice to have when traveling.
~Whole Foods, recipe app and gives you whole foods locations
~Spark Recipes (thank you Sarah), has a great list of recipes that you can save as favorites but also goes one step farther and gives you the ingredients list, directions, and nutrition info. I've found a bunch of vegetarian options on this.
~Jillian Michael's Slim Down, features work out exercises, recipes, and tips.
~Instagram, fun photography app
~myFitnessPal, calorie counter and diet tracker


#4. Has anyone ever done Habitat for Humanity? If you or anyone you know have, PLEASE speak up and tell me about your experience! I'd really appreciate it.


#5. I couldn't be more excited to have a weekend full of NOTHING. I have so many house projects (crafts & decorating) I want to do that I've put off. I can't wait to actually have the time to do them and relax, too :)

#6. Real World Las Vegas...thoughts, anyone?


At first I thought Dustin was super cool/cute, but now I would rather just look at him and not have to listen to him (harsh but true). Nany..what are you doing? Adam is not a good catch.

#7. You had to know this was coming. Where the HECK are you, Spring?! Just because I'm allergic to you and got sick doesn't mean I wanted you to go away. You can come back anytime now...like, now-now.

    I watched the first episode of Real World Las Vegas, and then I forgot about it! Is it good so far? Maybe I will have to DVR it!

  3. I wish Spring would get a move on over here as well! However, It's snowing today. Standard. My Spring won;t be here until the end of April, beginning of May. Then it will be Summer in June. I have the iphone and barely use any apps! Oops. I'm super excited about the Royal Wedding too. I thought about getting up at 4am to start watching the festivities live but I think I'll just DVR it instead.

  7. Ahhhh, I have not watched The Real World in probably 4 or 5 years...for some reason I am watching this season...and man, do I have some opinions! :) I totally agree about Dustin, he was totally a cute, southern, boy at first...now he is annoying, they way he freaked out about the kiss...and the go carts! Calm down and just shhhhh. And Nany, what an idiot! Adam is gross. And a jackass!

    Okay, I'm done. Sorry, no one else watches it and I needed to vent! HA! :)

  8. First, I as well want to be Kate Middleton. I am obsessed with her. She is so gorg. and classic. Second, I hate dustin. I googled his weird guy porno thing and it is creepy. He was decently cool in the beginning but now he is a wack job. Also, I agree with you about Nany, he is going to give up on her once she breaks up w/ her bf anyways. It can't end well. I think Adam is gross anyways.

  11. So glad you're feeling better! It is amazing when you start to have energy again! You feel like you can conquer the world. ;) I use a lot of those apps, but I also play Angry Birds and Words with Friends. Shazam is another one of my favorites because I always want to know the names of songs on the radio--plus it will tag them so I can go back and download them on itunes!
