Thoughts on Thursday

Time for Thoughts on Thursday!

* Remember this post I did about the millionaire heiress recluse? Well, there's an update to her story and where all her millions will go.  $34million to her private nurse alone.  Click here to read.

*We're staying in town this weekend.  Well, sorta. We're hanging with friends on Saturday night but on Sunday a co-worker and I are heading up to Chimney Rock State Park to hike around.
Brad and I went up there when we first started dating and he FREAKED out because of the height.
Here I am at the top. 
I'm excited because I've never hiked the back end which is where they filmed the movie The Last of the Mohicans. Should be a good time.  Debating on whether to bring Buddy or not?
* Our 4th of July plans are set. My parents are coming up to the lake with us! So, it will be Brad's rents, my rents and us.  Robyn, Jeff and the kids will be in VA this year.  It will sure be different without the kiddos around to shoot fireworks with!
* The weekend after the 4th of July we're going camping!! Real camping I might say! Tent and all! We'll be at a campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Click here to see. I'm super excited! We're going with our friends Katie and Josh.
* I'm not going to reach my goal weight after all by the 4th.  I've had a few slip-ups including eating a bag of peanut M&M's yesterday while I was listening to geeks talk about HTML Code. It's the only way I could deal. Seriously!
* I'm still following the Casey Anthony trial but I think the defense's case has sucked! BORING and ridiculous! I did see this morning that her parents have finally admitted that they think she's guilty but don't want her to get the death penalty. Brad thinks Casey is going to walk.  I can't imagine! The jury might need to go into hiding if that happens.
Also, do you think Casey will take the stand?
* Brad and I have been cooking machines! Next week I plan on taking pictures of every dinner we cook and then posting about it later in the week.  Some of you might get some new 'healthy' dinner ideas!

That's all I have for today. Happy Thursday!

I stepped on the scale this morning and almost threw it! So needless to say I won't make my goal either!! Have fun hiking ...

Annie said...

Don't get me started on the Anthony case!! Or her parents! They all frusterate me so much.

And hiking again this weekend? You're my kind of girl! Have fun!

Your plans sound fantastic!

I love tent camping. We need to take the kids to do so on the beach before the summer ends.

Enjoy your weekend!

I was seriously on such a roll working out and have not been able to the last two weeks so I'm not going to hit my goal now either. BOO.

Sounds like a fun weekend and a fun 4th!

Ashley said...

I hope she doesnt walk!! glad her parents finally woke up.
I remember watching The Mohicans movie with my dad when I was younger...but I dotn remember the movie that much. I was just reading an Eating Well magazine last night trying to pick recipes and then make a grocery list... I never meal plan, but I was going to give it a try.

As long as you're getting healthy, you're doing great! :)
I almost went to go get some Reeses yesterday...thankfully I was too lazy to go out and get some! Have fun camping! :)

Nikki said...

Can't wait to read that article at lunch. I was wondering how you were feeling about the Casey Anthony case. I think the mere fact that she googled Chloroform says something is up.

Sounds like it's turning out to be a wonderful couple of weeks for you!

Looks like you have some exciting stuff coming up soon! We usually go to the lake every July 4th too but are going to miss it this year.. bummer!!

Just found your blog and as a newlywed thought we would have something in common! Love that you traveled around before you got married!

I've read about that woman before, what a fascinating story. Can't wait to read the update! Hope you had a good time at the park...that view looks amazing!
