Random Musings

1. Borderline obsessed with "Chicken Fried" by Zac Brown Band.
2. Love this part of that song: "I thank God for my life/And for the stars and stripes/May freedom forever fly, let it ring/Salute the ones who died/The ones that give their lives so we don't have to sacrifice/All the things we love/Like our chicken fried/Cold beer on a Friday night/A pair of jeans that fit just right/And the radio up."
3. Found a new thai place by my work and it was fabulous.
4. Watched "The House of Sand and Fog" last night. Most. disturbing. movie. ever.
5. Looking forward to double dating with my bro and his gf tonight to the auto show and to try a new mediterranean restaurant.
6. Hoping Garth shaves his beard this weekend.
7. Excited to play hostess tomorrow and see great friends.
8. Praying for my aunt and grandma. Both are in the hospital and in a lot of pain.
9. Sore from the workout videos I did this week.
10. In shock that Starbuck's hot chocolate has 500 calories!
11. Tired because I had nightmares from that stupid movie "The House of Sand and Fog."
12. Drinking my eight glasses of water a day.
13. Wishing I was laying on the beach somewhere.
14. In awe of the great big God I have the privilege to serve.
15. Missing cable TV.
16. Thankful.

Mmm I love mediterranean food, especially greek. So tasty with all that sour.

And I swear I have become addicted to water. If I don't drink a ton a day I feel really dehydrated.

My favorite part of Chicken fried -

And its funny how it`s the simple things in life that mean the most
Not where you live or what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There`s no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I`ve come to know

It's so true and so hard to remember sometimes. =) I smile everytime I hear it.

I remember kind of wanted to see House of Sand and Fog a long time ago when it first came out. Apparently it sounds like maybe it was a good thing I didn't, I get scared easily by movies! Would you still recommend it, or not? Have a great weekend :-)

500 calories in hot chocolate?! That is ridiculous!
I guess I should be glad that I dreamt about my third grade multiplication songs and not a scary movie! Haha!

Starbucks is really bad for you. I have a drink from there that is the Espresso Truffle Latte I replace it as a meal!
