1 – Writing over 2,000 words during my first day of NaNoWriMo
2 – Running for 20 minutes straight for the first time ever. And it felt… easy?
3 – A lunch outing with co-workers
4 – Wearing boots for this first time this season
5 – A new hairstyle
6 – Rocking a 5K race and a lunch date with my grandparents
7 – A shopping trip at Marshall’s that yielded me two shirts and a sweater for under $25
8 – Making it through a tough BodyPump class where I did EIGHTY-THREE squats during the first half of the squat track. That’s just… no. Not right.
9 – Snuggles and kisses with Dutch
10 – Sleepover with my nephew
11 – Getting a raise at work
12 – Running 2 miles without stopping (!!) and meeting Amber
13 – Watching the SFvNYG game with my brother. He’s a little insane when he watches his Niners, but it’s still so much fun to watch football with him. Also? Watching my nephew have conversations with Dutch. PRICE! LESS!
14 – A quiet lunch at Panera
15 – Locking in my days off for November and December. I had 5 days (+ one “shopping day” my bosses gave to everyone) to use up so starting Thanksgiving week, I will have at least one day off for the next eight weeks.
16 – Feeling skinny
17 – A dark chocolate Dove bar
18 – Coming home from a draining day at work to see my nephew at my place. Love.

20 – Shopping for the the first Thanksgiving hosting gig for my mom and I
21 – Getting in a good morning workout so I could come home after work and RELAX. It made me happy all day.
22 – Feeling completely settled and happy
23 – Leaving work an hour before quitting time and knowing I have six days all to myself
24 – A drama-free, stress-free Thanksgiving with the people I love the most
25 – Going to the Sea World Christmas Celebration
26 – Buying a dresser from IKEA and my brother coming over that night to help me put it together. (And by help, I mean he did it all by himself with me standing by…)
27 – Our first #twookclub chat. There are some things to change but ultimately a GREAT success!
28 – Turning 24
29 – A relaxing day off, where I took a 3-hour mid-morning nap and caught up on my DVR. Splendid.
30 – A small birthday celebration at work
