Happy Thinking Out Loud Thursday!

Thinking Out Loud

  1. This week has been especially nice because it seems like spring is really, truly here. Yesterday it was almost 80 degrees! This is unheard of for March inBoston (and is usually unheard of for all of April as well). I cannot even begin to tell you how grateful I am that we had an easy winter this year.
  2. In our backyard, we have a scallion garden that was planted by the previous owners. I’m always amazed at how resilient these little scallions are. The second the snow is melted every spring, they’re already growing. This year is no exception. We will never have a scallion shortage in this household.
  3. This week I restarted the 21 Day Fix in my quest to get in better shape for my upcoming wedding. Because I’ve been working out more consistently over the past few months, I actually noticed that I felt strong during the upper body workout, which is a thing that has never happened before!
  4. This also may have something to do with the fact that I recently started another round of the 100 pushup challenge. I do pushups on my knees because I’m not quite strong enough to do the regular kind, but I’ve been doing this for the past 3-4 weeks and I’m noticing a big change. I can do so many pushups in a row now! This is big for me, because my upper body has always been extremely weak. I remember the days when I could barely do a handful of knee pushups!
  5. Last weekend, D and I made a final decision about our honeymoon. We had been thinking about Italy for a while, but in our hearts we really wanted to make a return to Tokyo. I did some extensive research on flights and hotels and found a relatively good deal, so we slept on it for a few days and then took the plunge. We’re going back to Tokyo!
  6. Luckily, we have a lot things going for us on this trip back to Tokyo that will make life easier for us. For one thing, I still have the piles of research I did before we went last time, plus we know how to navigate the trains and get from place to place already.
  7. After our last trip, I had some yen leftover when we returned. However, from the time we left on our trip to the time we returned, the exchange rate changed drastically in such a way that I would be losing a significant amount of money to reconvert to dollars. Now though, I can take that yen back with us! Plus now since the exchange rate is still so backwards, we can buy more yen for much cheaper than last time.
  8. P.S. Erin Condren* is having a big sale that ends today! I love my life planner!

Has the weather turned nice where you are yet?

Do you grown any fruits or vegetables in your garden?

    How fun! I have never been to Tokyo! The weather in Dallas has been so rainy all week, but at least it has been warm with the rain. I just grow a few herbs right now as we live in a city and I don’t have access to grow more, but when we move again we will definitely have a yard and I can’t wait to grow more. My mom grows every type of vegetable and has a whole blueberry and blackberry garden. It is amazing!

    We have got that warm front as well. I like my Erin Condren planner as well. I first found them for wedding planners then fell in love with her life planners too.

  3. We had scallion plants at my dad’s when I was a kid -I’m not sure why I never thought to plant some at our house!
