Happy Friday Friends!

Well we made it to Friday! What a deal! 🙂 I just enjoyed an excellent 11 miler (8:07/pace averaging) and I am now enjoying the FABULOUS weather we are having. No humidity and a high of 75 today! Austin is simply fabulous in the spring!! Look out backyard…here I come!! Oh and THANK YOU to everyone for the sweet comments about my hair yesterday! You guys ROCK!

Dinner last night was leftovers! Gotta love it! We did leftover turkey gingersnap meatloaf! Seriously…guys you should really try this! The gingersnaps add such a nice flavor! Keith and I both LOVE leftovers…I actually think most things taste better as a leftover and usually cold! haha!

Are you a leftover lover or hater?

Today should be good because it is F-R-I-D-A-Y! The weather is supposed to be great this weekend and Keith and I are making plans to spend a lot of time soaking up all that glorious vitamin D! Gotta love it! 🙂 And since today is so lovely (thus enhancing my usual perky morning mood) let’s start this day off on the right positive foot!

What are you the most grateful for today?

Here is my list:

  1. This GORGEOUS weather and the beauty of our planet!
  2. My husband…he is amazing. I know this sounds so cheesy but seriously last night we laughed so much my abs hurt and honestly I can’t even remember what about. Just happy giggles!
  3. My health…I am so thankful that I am healthy and running great. I never take my health or being injury-free for granted and I can not express how lucky I know that I am!

Enjoy this day everyone!! Until this afternoon….

  1. I love leftovers! I think most foods taste better the next day. 🙂

  2. Happy Friday!!! Glad you’re feeling so much better!

  3. I am not a huge leftover fan. I leave those to the hubs. I am thankful that it’s Friday, it’s going to be gorgeous here too, that I’ll get to run at lunch, and all the support I receive from fellow bloggers. Happy Friday!

  4. Leftovers – bring them on!! 🙂

    I am happy today for a great walk with my dog that we both enjoyed. And for a great breakfast with my hubby, no hurry and good food. Feeling good also after yesterdays osteopathy. Have fun day Kelly!

  5. I love leftovers. Mostly because I don’t have to think about what I’m going bring to work for lunch. You know what I like cold? Chinese Food. It gets sort of congealed but I like it.

    I’m also grateful for my health. With all of this stuff going on with my father, it’s definitely taught me to be grateful for my own body and treat it well.

  6. I’m not a huge fan of leftovers… bad… I know!

    Today I’m grateful that the weather has dipped below 70 degrees… our AC is broken and we were toughing it out in the 90 degree weather!

    Have a great Friday!!!

  7. i USUALLY love leftovers…’specially pizza!!! today i’m thankful for a healthy family, my sweet husband, and the sunshine. i am so blessed!

  8. I’ve always been a huge leftover hater. But then when we had to start tightening our budget a ton, we started eating leftovers. I don’t actually enjoy it, but I can get through a leftover meal now. I also hate the smell of leftover takeout in my fridge.

  9. I love how cheerful you are in the morning, you always perk me up. I am a leftova lova! Seriously you should check out my fridge right now, container upon container of leftovers!

  10. I am grateful for having a job in this economy and the beautiful weather!

  11. Happy Friday Kelly! Besides the convenience factor, I LOVE leftovers because they taste so darn good!

    I am grateful for sunshine and a day off today! Woohoo!

    I love that your peppy positive attitude puts me in that mood now too 🙂

  12. LEFTOVERS!! they are the best…the longer it sits the better it gets, thats my opinion 🙂 I am happy that it is the weekend and grateful for my beautiful amazing family!!

  13. I love leftovers! As long as I don’t have an entire week’s worth… that’s a little overkill.

  14. I love leftovers too! I’m jealous of your weather….its rainy and cold here today. I am definitely thankful it’s Friday!!

  15. I always love all the positive vibes I get when I read your posts!!! Ooo and since I didn’t get a chance to comment on your hair yesterday, just wanted to tell you it looks AWESOME!!

    I have to agree with you… leftovers rock and you are right they always seem to taste better!

    Happy Friday Kelly 🙂

  16. Who is a Friday…. HATER? Seriously. Who doesn’t love the weekends? Unless this is like their hardest day at work/at the gym etc.

    I love the weekend.

  17. I’m a leftover lover! bring em on is what I say! and yes, loved the extra touch of brightness to your hair by the way!

  18. i ❤ leftovers. yum, yum!

    today i am grateful for the weekend! i have a lot of things on my to do list and need a couple of days to get 'em all done!

  19. I love leftovers! Especially since the flavors get a chance to really mesh in the fridge 🙂

  20. YAY, happy Friday!

    Oh my gosh, how did I not realize you live in Austin?? I am dying to get there.. my boyfriend LOVES that city and wants us to go take a trip there.

    As for leftovers.. If I made them, I’m a lover..If it’s from a restaurant, not so much usually.


  21. Hi Beautiful!

    Leftovers…I’m on the fence and I’m picky on which ones I’ll eat. However, it’s really convenient to have them around when I don’t have the time to cook and want to avoid going out. 🙂

  22. i love what you are thankful for…..we are so lucky to be healthy and happy…..we need to embrace this for sure 🙂
    you hair looks great too from the last post 🙂

  23. I think after being sick twice that you are definitely more than thankful for your health 🙂
    I’m going to try that turkeyloaf too – love gingersnaps.

  24. I love leftovers! Leftovers for lunch is totally the way to go for me!

  25. I’m iffy on leftovers. Sometimes they are fantastic–like pasta dishes, etc. But I usually don’t like leftovers that have meat in them.

  26. What are your plans to soak up the D? Have a fab Friday and weekend.

  27. I love love love leftovers!! I have them for lunch every day 🙂

    Im grateful for a couple things today. First, I won the fight with my phone company and am getting a new blackberry.
    Second, my landlord stole me a new recycle bin because someone stole mine. lol

    Enjoy your Friday Kelly!!

  28. We used to try to do leftover night once a week to keep waste at a minimum…we’ve got to start that back up!
    Kelly..I just have to tell you that I love your upbeat posts…it puts a smile on my face every time I read one.
    It sounds like you are truly blessed and I feel that I am too..I love that you keep reminding me to appreciate it!

  29. hey pretty lady!!
    awesome run this morning….holding a quicky pace=EXCELLENT!! I LOVE leftovers as long as they don’t have a sauce on them to make them squishy! I WILL NOT waste food…hehe so I am usually a left-over fiend! 🙂
    I hope you are having a fabulous friday…ahhh we made it! 😉

  30. I ❤ leftovers!! Used to hate them as a kid though!!

    I'm thankful that I had spring break this past week and so much time to focus on myself and clean up our house. It feels so good to have gotten so much done!! 🙂

  31. Leftovers are great!!! Especially when its leftovers of an amazing meal!!

    I’m grateful for my family today 🙂 I’m spending the weekend with my parents and they’re so great !

  32. Leftovers are so economical and I TRY my hardest to eat them, but more times than not, I just don’t end up liking them that much. I used to always get the $5 footlong from Subway so I could have half for lunch and half for dinner (or the next day) and it just DIDN’T taste the same. Soggy bread is not tasty. Leftovers when I cook (which isn’t often enough) are better though.

    An.Y.way. I’m grateful for my health, friends, family, bf, ya know, the standard stuff. AND the fact that I won a FREE happy hour tonight with all my friends! Woohoo!


  33. Nice job on the run! I usually don’t like leftovers from restaurants (it usually gets soggy or something), but I’m a fan of leftovers if my mom cooks 🙂

    I’m grateful that it’s FRIDAY and that I’m going to eat chocolate cake and drink red wine in honor of my roommate’s bday tonight!

  34. Leftovers are the best. I think the flavors really come out more the next day.

  35. Hmm I had to dig deep for this one – I’m in a foul, grumpy-pants mood today but your post cheered me up – especially the part about your hubby, SO cute!! Let’s see – I’m grateful for co-workers who “get” me and my need to get out of the office earlier for an on-the-fly manicure and that I only have an hour left in the day before it’s officially the weekend. Sorta lame but it’s the best I could manage today, being ms. grumpy pants and all. 😉 Tomorrow’s a new day – annnd it’s Saturday 🙂

  36. I used to hate leftovers, but am getting into them lately. Maybe because I am so freakin busy these days?!?!?

    I am grateful for my health. Always. After a few months of not so great health, you really learn to not take a normally functioning body for granted, right?

  37. I LOVE leftovers. They make the best no prep lunches.
