How do you feel about Thursdays? I’ve always loved them, but when I got to thinking about why, I realized that through the years my reasons have changed quite a bit. I thought this might be fun to share! For example:

In my four years of college I loved them because of the anticipation of “Thirsty Thursday”…a.k.a. the biggest drinking night of the week. I specifically remember sitting in classes on Fridays wanting to cry because I felt so ill and vowing to “never drink again”, only to repeat Thirsty Thursday the following week. Looking back, I honestly wonder how my liver survived it!

In my 4+ years in corporate America, I loved them for what we at John Hancock called “LTK Thursday”…a.k.a. the biggest drinking night of the work week at the bar next door, Legal Test Kitchen. We went there so often that the bartender knew our names AND our drink orders every.single.time. I specifically remember thinking on many Fridays “how will I get through the day?” See a trend? Whoops.  Although I really do miss the social aspect of Thirsty Thursdays, I don’t miss the cost or the horrible hung-over feeling I felt most Fridays!

Fast forward to my present life as a  27-year old second-time student and gosh things have changed. I adore them because at 3:00 p.m., my classes end and the weekend begins! This means I can catch up on cleaning and homework,  go for a sunset walk and cook a great dinner. What can I say, I’m officially old.  : –)  Just kidding…kind-of.
However, besides just getting an early start to the weekend, I also love this Thursday for a few more reasons:

1) I woke up smiling thanks to an amazing dinner I had with some of my girlfriends last night. Sometimes, you just need girl-time, right?   I had 5 beauties over for a few hours of laughs and a crock-pot pork dinner, which was a huge success. I’ll post the recipe soon because it was too good to-not share!

2) I was able to “sleep-in” until 7a.m. today and started out my day with a beautiful 4-mile run on the ocean, followed by an amazing BODYPUMP class.

3) Today is the last day I have to spend away from Brandon! He has been gone for almost 2 weeks due to work and travelling and I can’t wait to have him home.

5 years later! What do you think? Have we changed?

There you have it. I love Thursdays, especially this one!

P.S. Happy birthday to my dear Michelle! She is finally home from the hospital, and is on the road to recovery. Thanks for continuing to keep her in your prayers!
