Love, Fun and Football: How To Rock a Thursday

Jan 23, 2014

How To Rock a Thursday

Thursday's get ZERO love. Or attention really at all. Everyone dreads the Mondays. We get into the swing of things and can make Tuesdays fly by. Wednesday we're all "Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike" and "Hump-Day" excited. Then of course there is a massive celebration once we reach Friday. So Thursday, today's post is dedicated solely to you. Today's post is all about how make the most of you and how you're really going to rock.

Start your day with a killer workout followed by a delicious protein shake.
I am slooooowly getting used to getting to the gym 1-2 times a week BEFORE work. As horrible as it is getting out of my warm bed in the morning and being slapped in the face with 2 degree weather, it's so worth it to have that workout done and over with by 7am! Not to mention the new protein powder I'm mildly obsessed with. 

Talk to connections at TicketMaster and attempt to bribe them into passing you some Katy Perry meet-and-greet tickets.
Katy Perry tickets are officially on sale for those of us superfans that have a pre-sale access code! I'm in slight freak-out mode over making the dates work for Kayla and I to see her again. I can't even explain how much fun her concert was back in 2011. It's time to see her again.

Work hard. Get a Raise.
No words necessary. Just do a dance party in your office and soak it in!

Get sidetracked and look at pictures all of the places you want to travel to.
Try not to pout when you see the price tags of trips over to Italy. Just make this photo your computer background and work harder to afford it… One day.

Use your amazing label maker.
Totally nerd out over labels, planners, stickers, color-coordinated pens and any other office supply you can get your hands on.

Have a creative streak where you write down 48 potential blog posts.
It doesn't matter if you will only end up actually using 2 of them in the next 6 months. Write them down. You do have pretty pens and markers after all! Put those to good use!

Dig out all the unhealthy recipes you promised to store away.
I mean, Super Bowl parties are NEXT weekend and there's no reason to count calories on the day you're going to be screaming, crying and laughing with the TV and all your closest friends. I saw that Brittany and Kaitlyn were hosting a Super Bowl food link-up so of course I couldn't miss out on that!
My go-to football food is one I've shared on here before, probably more than once. But it's just SO simple and SO addicting, I can't help but make it for a crowd. It's such an easy dip to double or triple-- and yes, we even quadrupled it one time. Fair warning- you won't be able to stop eating it. Hence the nickname it's been given.
So how are YOU going to make this Thursday rock?

  6. We made that dip for the firs time this Christmas and it is AMAZING. A little salty, but so, so good.

    Someone brought these cajun pita chips and those with the dip was heaven. I cannot wait to eat it again, and I couldn't stop eating it.

  7. I started out by getting an early train, I'm through 40 ounces of water by 9 a.m., and I've done my first set of squats and wall push ups.

    Kicked out something on a deadline, and I'm ending my day with a hair cut and color.

    I love Thursdays!

  8. I like Thursdays, in my head I think of it as the beginning of the end of the week. Haha.

    I love any day I can churn out a ton of blog post ideas, I'm going to need to make some time for brainstorming soon!

  9. I bet Thursday LOVED the love you showed it today :)!

    Morning workouts stink when the alarm goes off, but man do they feel good the rest of the day!

  10. CHEDDAR BACON RANCH DIP! That cannot be a real thing...OMG. I hate you for that. I really need to learn how to get my A out of bed and workout in the morning, I know I'd feel so much better doing it right away.

  15. Thursday was always my favorite night of the week because it was always college id night or ladies night at the dance clubs or bars :) Then it became my bowling night for many years. I guess it was always the fun night of the week for me :) Kind of miss those days.
    I would love to see Katy Perry! I think my husband would too! lol!
    And thank you for featuring that dip again! I hoping to host a Super Bowl party so it will be on the menu for sure!!!

  20. Kate Perry is coming to Nashville and I am on the fence about tickets. They are so expensive here!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That cheddar bacon ranch dip sounds so amazing. Mmmmmmm. Yup, that might be drool on my keyboard.

    I like Thursdays. It is the day before Friday, you are almost through the week, a lot of good shows came on Wednesday night so I have something to do when I get home, Thursdays aren't bad.

    Congrats on the raise!!! Wooohooo!

  25. Oh gosh.. that dip sounds amazing! I might have to make that for the Super Bowl, too! Thursdays are my favorite because that's when all my shows are on! Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway, Under the Gunn ;)

  26. I was just talking about this with my mom! Thursdays definitely get no love! I think I'm going to get my butt in gear and head over to the gym, now that you've said that.

    xo, Hima

  27. I am not much of a football fan - I've stated this before. But I am looking forward to the Superbowl for the foodies!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I share you passion for office supplies! I LOVE to color coordinate everything! GO YOU for waking up early and getting to the gym! I understand how awful it feels to walk outside in 2 degree weather and I refuse to do it! You are an inspiration my friend :) Have a great Thursday night!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thursdays used to be my favourite because it was always the best night for TV. Then all of my favourite shows switched to Wednesday night and I lost some love for Thursdays. I really need to invest in a label maker, I have a old cheapo one I found in my mom's junk drawer but it's not nearly as awesome as a 'real' one! Happy Thursday!

  30. I'm cracking up over your picture in the Katy Perry cloud. Haha! And 48 blog post ideas?! Please send some creative juices my way. Haha.

  31. Just like Donna (the gal before me) Thursday use to be my favorite day of the week because of all the great tv shows like ER. I have never heard of that recipe so I snapped a picture of it with my phone so I can make it this weekend because it looks super yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  32. 48 blog posts? Dang I'm lucky if I can come up with 10!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love everything about this post. Super jealous you can get up and motivated by 7am!! I can't even tell you the last time I was up and ready to do anything at 7am! I need to start getting up earlier and getting my work outs out of the way so I feel better.. I'm slightly obsessed with my label maker. I go on random sprees where I just label ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. My husband thinks I'm nuts. I just think I'm 'organized'..maybe both? ;) Superbowl food..I ordered some stuff for our little football celebration. I still haven't planned the menu yet and that dip looks AMAZING. I found a great skinny taco dip recipe that I think will be made for said occasion. I thought I was the only one that brainstormed blog posts? Good to know I'm not!

  34. Girl--I'm falling in love with Katy Perry more and more. I've never been to any of her concerts, but I can see how they'd be amazing!!
    Andddddddd you got a raise!? Do that party dance, girl! I hope y'all splurged and went out for a nice celebratory dinner!
    Also-I just bought a label maker and cannot wait to label everything in sight. haha
    Oh, and I'm totally with you on the Italy trip. Andrew and I have such a long wish list of all of the places we're dreaming of going. Maybe I need to find a picture of somewhere we want to go to help us save money. :)

    Happy Thursday!

  35. I don't know...I'll have to figure out how to make next Thursday rock cause this one didn't do it for me...haha!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I got tired just READING this list!! If I get anything at all done on Thursday (or any day!) I consider it a victory in my book :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Tuesday & Thursday are kind of the underdogs so I'm always routing for them. I love your attitude :) That said, it's Friday now, so happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  38. YAY for Thursdays. They are definitely important although they do get shoved into the back ground of Friday's shadow too often. I sure hope y'all get your meet and greet passages just so I can see the fun y'all have and live vicariously through you. YAY for label making. That may be my favorite part. hehe

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well I definitely wouldn't say that my Thursday rocked or anything, but I did get some significant projects worked on at the office which felt great. I also dragged myself to the gym on my way home even though it felt like torture. I LOVE morning workouts! Well not really... I hate them, but I love the feeling after I'm done, knowing that my workout is already complete for the day. :-)
