Horrible Selfies & Positive Thoughts

I confess...

It's been a while since I've linked up with Kathy for Humpday Confessions.

I love Taylor Swift's new songs.  We definitely had a few road trip dance alongs to Shake It Off.

I think this picture is the worst selfie ever taken, but we were in a cloud at the top of a mountain and I was trying to show my stressed out face.  Yikes.  Also, I think Justin was trying to show me something and I was obviously ignoring him.  I'm such an ass.

I haven't done yoga in over a week now and my body feels weird.  It's like I became dependent on it to feel normal.

I have been craving another fried clam sandwich.  Thank you Maine.

I will probably have at least another 3 posts worth of vacation pictures and I know people don't like that, but I do.  Sorry.

I had a dance party this morning when I realized that my blog hit 100,000 hits.  See, when I made my 30 before 30 list, I originally had that as a goal.  Then I calculated how many hits per day I would need and decided it was impossible, so I changed it to 10,000 which I hit about a year ago.  This little blog has grown quite a bit since then and it makes my heart so happy.

I'm a bit obsessed with Slo-Mo.  My girlfriends in St. Paul had so much fun with it last summer and sent some of the funniest videos and then I kind of forgot about it - until I made Justin take this video.  It's the greatest cheesiest thing ever.

New England is so amazing and this week has been perfect. I am now a professional leaf peeper. #peepingsomeleaves

I have failed at my creative goals for the last few months, so I'm giving myself until the end of the year.  My 4th word for 2014 is "calm" and I've got a few ideas of goals for myself with that as well, so I'm making the next 2 1/2 months count.

I wish it wasn't warm outside right now because it makes being inside working just a little bit harder.  We have a huge transition for work today with some software programs and I'm going to be buried for hours.  Maybe I can sneak the dogs outside for a 15 minute walk around lunch.  Fingers crossed.

Last, but not least, I have successfully blogged every day so far in October, but I almost forgot yesterday.  Whoops.  Being back at work is hard stuff.  Today's Blogtober prompt is favorite quote.  I have too many, so I'm going to share my Pinterest Board on positive thoughts and you can see all of them.
