Three Things Thursday

It's been a week, what's been going on?

 #1 I've been sick.

As in one trip to the doctor and two trips to urgent care, two steroid shots, once antibiotic shot, and SEVERAL prescriptions kind of sick. I somehow came down with bronchitis and had a cough from you know where for three, going on four weeks. I'm FINALLY feeling on the mend, but my left ear is still plugged and my right back hurts from what I think is a bruised rib from so much coughing. I have another appointment with my ENT on Friday to see if she can help with the ear thing. I've never had a sickness drag out this long, but the weather changes from hot to cold and back again and it's miserable!

All of this sickness means my Rock n Roll San Antonio training has taken a serious turn. I did manage to run that 10 miler in the state park a few weekends ago, and that seems to be the highest mileage I'll be able to achieve before running my next half. I'm not going in to for any crazy goals in Texas anyway, I just wanted to run a new race in a new area and experience some Rock n Roll fun outside of the New Orleans/Dallas area!

I did manage to return to Orangetheory this week for a workout on Tuesday and it felt amazing. I'm hoping to go back for a second one this afternoon if my back cooperates.

#2 New Furniture

I. Am. So. Excited!! Back in May, we ordered a new table for our little breakfast area. Our old table was sentimental in Jason's family and was fun to have for a while, but it was definitely time for something new. I fell in LOVE with a table at Ashley Furniture and although I was told there was a production delay, they said I would have the table by the end of June. Well, when I called in June to verify, I was told that production time had been pushed back to AUGUST. Huh?

I asked to speak to the service manager and he was super nice, told me I could cancel my order if I wanted to, but said he thought I should stick it out if I really wanted the table. Well, Jason and I looked around at other furniture stores and couldn't find anything else we liked better...and I didn't really NEED the table right then and I decided to stick it out.

Fast forward to August. I called again to check on dates and guess what? I'm sure you time had been pushed back to the end of October. I called in October and...yep, it had been pushed back again, this time to November. What in the world?!

So, I spoke with the service manager again and he said that although the date had been moved, he could see that it looked as if 40 tables and 200 chairs were set to be loaded on a truck in Mississippi in November which looked promising. I must have called a million times since then to check on dates, but the dates continued to remain the same!

Which means delivery day! I'm so excited that I'm going to have my new table for the holiday season!!

Stay tuned to instagram for pictures and updates!

#3 Christmas Decor

Speaking of the holiday season, who's ready?! I am!! Well, not yet...but I'm getting there! I always decorate for Christmas on the weekend before Thanksgiving, so that's the plan here for this weekend and I cannot wait! I am leaving out a few fall items (like table decor) for our annual "Friendsgiving" that's usually held the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

It's going to be a great weekend!

So, how about you? When do you decorate for Christmas? I'm not judging...I just love the holiday season in general and this time of year is just the best!


  1. Wow, sorry to hear that you've been so sick - that is a long time to feel so bad! I hope you continue to improve and this is is for illness for this season!

    And now I can't wait to see your new table; dang, that was a long time waiting for it!

    1. Thanks so much! I am feeling better day by day! :)

  2. Oh man, sorry you've been so sick! Last year was the first year I did any decorating BEFORE Thanksgiving and ya know what, I loved it! I am going to make decorating the weekend before Thanksgiving my new tradition! Actually we got out of school early today SO I got some decor boxes out and wanted to start the decorating but then got side tracked (as I am here reading blogs...haha). So it may be too late to start getting things out!

    We ordered new furniture too and it has not arrived yet. I called today to check the ETA and the salesman I've been working with has mentioned "queen bed" for the last three times i called (and I ordered a KING bed). I bet you anything when this bed finally comes that it's going to be a queen! Just my luck. How exciting that you will have a new table to decorate for the holidays!

    1. Oh man...I hope they get your furniture thing sorted out! That's craziness. What's the deal with furniture stores here lately?!

  3. I normally decorate on Black Friday, and I've bumped it up this year. It's been a tough year and if I want to decorate early, I will :)
