Quick Takes (27)

I am so happy Jen allows for late submissions for these precious 7QTs.  It really does help this night shifter from having to plan wayyyyy ahead, ya know?  So, without further ado, let's get started!

I guess my blogging these days mostly consists of lists?
I hope you don't mind.
Oh, well with the exception of the Not Alone Series, but that's still a linkup!
Huh... I will try to work on that, promise.

Speaking of Not Alone Series (sorry I keeeeeep talkingggg abouttttt it.... but, it's new and still exciting, so I am allowed!), I am still so flippin' amazed at the incredible response we (Morgan and I) have been getting.  The ladies that have linked up, left comments, tweeted and retweeted or even gave us awesome shoutouts has been inspiring and encouraging.  I just can't help but get giddy about it. :)
God truly is at work here, and I pray that He continues to guide me in my writing, along with every other chick that participates.

I am running...
Sorry if you have seen this on Twitter already, but be warned that the world might be ending.
Or pigs are flying.
Or worms have ears.
I'm serious.
I am running... as in going on a run.
On a MILE (maybe longer?) run.
Annnnnd... I kind of like it.
It's weird. My mind is blown.

You see, my friend Colleen loves to run. Always has, and if it weren't for her darn knee, she would still BE running (btw, would you say a quick prayer that her knee does get better!!).
Martha discovered a love for running when she was in law school.  She tells me all the time how it's just amazing and it's more of a mental game vs a physical thing.
I would always nod and agree... yes, yes of course, and think, 'ha, not for me! I would die.'
My friend Morgan (not from NAS-Not Alone Series, by IRL friend who I actually haven't seen in real life in foreverrrrr) just loves to be active and work out.  The gym is her friend.

And then there is me.  I was never one to enjoy running (despised it, avoided it at all costs) or really going to the gym.  Ugh.  I was an avid swimmer growing up and a bit in college... and then just kind of left all of that.  I would have my moments of going to the gym frequently but then stopped.  I had a trainer for a while and stopped that.

And now... now I have no idea.
I guess it has a lot of something to do with losing weight with WW and having energy.  And, wanting to really succeed at losing weight for the first time in my life.  And wanting to be OUTSIDE SO IT GIVES ME HOPE THAT THE SUN WILL COME BACK TO SWFL!

Whatever it is... I am going to ride this wave as long as I can.
Please pray for me!  I really just want to stay active and get my butt back in shape.
Thank you!!
[end longest take ever... now.]

I have no pics to share for this edition of 7QTs b/c I used all of them for my Five Faves.
Then I worked the last 2 nights.... so, I can't go around taking pics of things/patients b/c that would be both boring and illegal.

So, I keep forgetting and then remembering
I am so excited to see my family!!
My brother, Em and my niece, Charlie are will be coming, too!!!!!
And my new niece, in utero, as well (obvio)!!
I can't wait, I can't wait.

Baby in a halo AND saying hi!! :)
Hahaha.... video chatting with these two!! :)
Yes, I know that we live thisclose, but it's still fun.

Well, that's about it in these parts.  Thanks to Jen for being the most gracious host.  Visit her for more fun!!!  Have such a happy weekend!


  1. Who is that sweet baby in the bottom photo?

    Glad you get to see your family in DC soon!

    Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Alright, girlie. I'm seriously considering meeting you for a weekend visit if I can find a cheap flight. I know-- am I crazy or what. ;) Where is the nearest airport? I know there are a lot of flights to FL from the airport an hour away from me...but I don't know for sure.

    P.S. Thanks for motivating me to start running again! LOVE your shoes!

  3. I'm so proud of you for running. It's true, the gym is my friend. :) Not as kind as you are though, haha.

    Keep up the great work love!


Hey! You just read that. Don't you wanna leave me some love?!
