It’s Thursday and I am linking up with the Thinking Out Loud linkup.
I have some really random thoughts while I am traveling. Last week I flew down to Florida and then did a road trip up the coast to Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC (travel posts coming soon!). Here are some of the TOL thoughts that occurred:
New Pet Peeve
In case you missed my Pet Peeves post a while ago, I will tell you that I have a lot of travel pet peeves. And when I flew down to Florida, I flew Southwest, which I hadn’t done in a while. So now I have a new pet peeve to add to the list – when people put bags on the middle seat so you won’t sit there. If you’re not familiar with Southwest, they do not assign seats. You have to check in (or pay) early to get a boarding number and then you line up according to your number but once you’re on the plane, you can sit anywhere. I forgot to check in right at 24 hours in advance so I did not have a good number. By the time I got on the plane, there were only middle seats left. And as I am walking through the aisle, I notice that a lot of people have place their bags and coats on the middle seat making you think they’re saving it for someone but really they are just being selfish jerks who don’t want you to sit there! So rude!!
Surprised by peanuts
Also on the plane, I had the random thought that I am surprised they still serve peanuts as a snack, with all the food allergies and people being so afraid of nuts these days.
As a photographer, I think I get more excited for my friends’ wedding photos than they do. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding recently and I couldn’t wait to see the pictures! As soon as the bride posted one photo I text her and was like “send me photos!!” LOL. I love looking at photos.
New Running Shoes
I have begun half marathon training for the Little Rock half in March. I ordered some new running shoes – Asics Gel Nimbus plus blue Superfeet inserts. I ran in the Nimbus for years until earlier this year switching to the Asics Gel Kayano and forgoing the inserts. That seemed to work well but then I got tendonitis in my left foot and it is still bothering me a little so I thought I would try switching back to my old ways and see if that helps.
Have you tried Chobani Flips? OMG they’re so good! They seriously taste like dessert and I am obsessed right now. My favorite flavor is the Peanut Butter Dream but really I like any of them that have peanut butter, chocolate, and/or caramel. Delicious!!
Fast & Furious Movies
I LOVE the F&F movies. I cried so much at the end of F&F 7 when they did the tribute to Paul Walker. I have mixed feelings that they are going to continue the series without him but I will still have to watch. I just saw the trailer for F&F 8 on Facebook and now I really have mixed feelings about it!
