Friday’s Letters


Dear B, So glad you are home (again).

Dear Buster and Bella, You are quite the duo.  Trouble and more trouble!  LOL!

Dear “Ride & Wine”, You were fun. All cycle classes should be followed by wine.

Dear The Lions, It’s looking like it will be a long season.  Ack.

Dear The Boys, Thanks for being so good yesterday!

Dear Fall, You have arrived.  At my house anyway.

Dear Summer Vacation, You have been so much fun!  I feel like we packed a lot in and we still have a few more days!

Dear Whoever Stole My Credit Card, I hope you enjoyed your purchase in Malta and Delaware. And also that online dating membership!

Thursday Thoughts


Resized-5JHE4

~Good morning! Not much to report here. We’re just soaking up the last few days of summer vacation (that includes a little late night swimming in the neighbors pool) before school starts next week. The boys met their teachers on Monday and everyone is happy, which makes me happy!

~What is everyone reading right now?  The boys and I went to the library yesterday and I picked up Last Night at Chateau Marmont: A Novel.  It has been out for years, but I haven’t read it and have liked her other stuff so I thought I would try it.  It should be a quick weekend read.

~How is everyone in Texas / Lousiana doing?? Zelene? Britney? How are you ladies?? We are thinking about you and sending thoughts and prayers!

That’s it from here. Have a safe holiday weekend!

So What Wednesday…

swwbig_zps16efcc06

This week I am saying so what if…

~None of us can remember W’s iPad password and resetting it is not working.  Ack!
~I know it’s going to a be a tough season, but I am still excited for MSU football on Saturday.
~I cannot believe that the new iPhone is going to cost $999.  Come on now.
~I don’t know why the dogs like to fight over the same thing.  There are three of you.  I give you each a bone – the same bone – yet everyone ends up fighting over one and the other two sit untouched.  I don’t get it.
~I am ready for Fall decorations.
~I think I was more excited for Meet the Teacher night than my kids were.
~B gave me his travel plans for this week, yet every time I talk to him I keep asking him where is he and when he’s headed to the next place.  It’s hard to keep track!

What are you saying so what to this week?

Two on Tuesday!

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 9.24.19 PM
1) What do you think of the Amazon purchase of Whole Foods and the price decreases?  We don’t have a Whole Foods super close (I think the closest is 20-25 minutes), but I love that they are dropping prices.   If there were one closer (or if prices drop more) I would for sure go there for certain items (prepackaged stuff and things from thei365 Organic line)!

2) What are your favorite lunchbox items? It’s almost lunch packing time (next week) and I need some fresh ideas!  My 9-year-old is a good eater and will happily eat just about anything.  My 5-year-old though is another story.  LOL!  He needs to have a variety of items to pick from, but doesn’t necessarily need a large quantity of food.  Has anyone been browsing Pinterest lately?  Help!

That’s it from here! I’m looking forward to hearing your answers.

Monday Morning Ramblings

MondayMorningRamblings-1024x1010-1

~Good morning!  This is our last full week of summer vacation so we need to make the most of it.  We have Meet The Teacher, errands, back to School shopping, etc. The dogs have vet appointments and Buster has a much needed haircut as well!    Oh and B is traveling this week 😁.  He was home for over a week, so I guess it was time for some more travel. LOL!!!!

~The dogs are all still getting along well and Bella got to see one of her brothers this weekend, which she enjoyed. She’s already the best traveler of the bunch too.

~Does anyone have a great zucchini bread recipe?  Hopefully one with chocolate chips in it?  My cousin sent me home with the world’s largest zucchini and I want to get baking!

~That’s it from here!  Good luck to all the kids starting school today and sending prayers to everyone in Houston!  Stay safe down there!

Sunday Sentiments

Screen-Shot-2014-10-26-at-5.53.23-PM

~Good evening! We had a busy weekend! The boys were up-north with my mom, so B and I went to the Lions preseason game on Friday night. I don’t know what else to say about that other than it’s going to be a long season for the Lions. LOL! Also, if you are headed to an NFL game, make sure to read the bag policy. I brought my yellow wallet / clutch from the #NGQ06 box, which worked perfect (I get so much use out of that thing), but tons of ladies brought their regular bags and were having to check them – for $10. OUCH!

~L (our 9-year-old) had been wanting to climb the big dune at the Sleeping Bear Dunes, so that’s what we did on Saturday after we drove up-north.  At the last minute, W (he’s 5) decided he wanted to climb too (instead of staying at the top with my mom), so off we all went!  The sign at the top warns it could take 2 hours to make your way back to the top so we were prepared for a long climb, but they did AMAZING.  W and I make it up in – no joke – 20 minutes.  He’s so low to the ground and so light that he doesn’t slide back down when he climbs like everyone else.  L loved it and I am pretty sure he wants to make this an annual tradition.  Which is fine with me since the views are so incredible from there.

~Is anyone planning on watching the VMA’s tonight? I like the VMA’s because you never know exactly what will happen, but I don’t think they are as amazing as they used to be.  Or maybe it’s because I am old(er) now??

~Did you know that Starbucks is closing their online store?  I read on POPSUGAR that it will close on 10/1, but right now they have tons of tumblers and mugs on sale for 50% off!  Maybe a good time to stock up on some holiday gifts??

That’s it from here! Have a great night!

Friday’s Letters


Dear The Lions, Now that I have purchased a t-shirt, you need to have a good season. LOL!!!

Dear Texas, Stay Safe!

Dear Teacher Assignment Letters, Please come in the mail today!

Dear Headaches, I hate you.

Dear The Gong Show, I had high hopes for you, but I’m just not feeling it.

Dear Bella, You are the best snuggler!

Dear The Partner Push-Up Workout, Yeah, you are not as easy as you look.  B and I were cracking up trying though.

Dear Spark, I am sorry I skipped you the other morning.  I now realize what a mistake that was and I will not do it again. #sotired
