Thursday Thoughts


~Good morning! How is it already Thursday? And already December?? Geez. It’s been warm (okay well warm for Michigan) so it doesn’t even feel like it’s December here.  It’ll snow soon enough though and we all cannot wait!

~My LuLaRoe love continues and I scored what is basically my Christmas outfit (luckily we don’t have anything fancy going on). If you’ve scored holiday leggings, are you noticing that they are running smaller than their other ones? I *probably* should have gotten these in TC, but I will make do.
~Did anyone watch the season primer of Fixer Upper??  I am so glad Chip and JoJo are back on my tv!  Also I picked up Magnolia Story with that $10 Black Friday Amazon coupon code and am hoping to get it started next week (I’ll report back).

~Don’t forget that Advocare is still offering Mixed Spark Packs! They include 6 Stick Packs each of: Fruit Punch, Pineapple Coconut, Limeade, Blue Raspberry and Grape flavors and are a great way to try a bunch of Spark Flavors. My favorite is Fruit Punch.  I am trying to use up all my other Spark in the house before ordering more (that’s going to take a while), but I totally miss my Fruit Punch.  I start every day with a Spark in my Yeti cup.  It is supposed to be mixed into 8oz of water, but I mix it into at least 3x that. I find it too strong with just 8oz.

~I am still expecting a few subscription boxes this week including my Neiman Marcus POPSUGAR Box (my Limited Edition boxes will be coming next week), the GLOSSYBOX Limited Edition Box, Wantable Intimates / Wantable Makeup, Bookcase.Club and Pooch Perks.

~That’s it from here. Have a great weekend!

So What Wednesday..


This week I am saying so what if…

~I’m really excited about going to the movies on Christmas. We all are excited!
~I am still disappointed that Starbucks didn’t have an advent calendar this year.
~I still want it to snow. A lot.
~I totally spaced on putting the garbage out last week because of the holiday. FAIL.
~I may not think all the “Funniest Videos” L watches are funny, but him cracking up cracks me up too. So cute!
~Out of everyone, I think Buddy misses B the most. I mean we all miss him (he’ll be home in a few days), but Buddy just seems extra sad. Poor guy ;(.
~I thought MSU Basketball season would make that awful football season all better. I was wrong.
~I am excited about my Reddit Secret Santa match!
~I need to wrap 24 books tonight for our Advent Book Calendar. Every year I plan on doing it in advance. And every year, I don’t.
~W had “Holiday Pictures” at school the other day. I sent him in wearing a lobster hoodie and running pants. Oops.

What are you saying So What to this week?

Two on Tuesday…

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 9.24.19 PM

1. What is your skincare routine? I am sure we talked about this before, but I have been thinking about it lately so I thought I’d ask! I have some friends who SWEAR by the Rodan & Fields “Reverse” line and I have been seriously considering it. Have you tried it? Anything else you swear by?

2. Holiday Shopping! How’s it coming along? I know some people are already done (that would not be me) and some people haven’t started yet (sort of me), but how is your shopping going? Do you have a lot of people to buy for?  Do you do a lot of your shopping online or do you like to go to the actual store?

I can’t wait to hear your answers!

Monday Morning Ramblings


~Happy Cyber Monday! Are you shopping today? If so, make sure to check out the Cyber Monday / remaining Black Friday deals on subscription boxes. And, just in case you missed it yesterday, POPSUGAR is offering Cyber Monday Mystery Boxes today, so be ready for that!

~Let’s see, what’s going on around here? B is still traveling, the boys have normal weeks at school (W does have Holiday Pictures at school one day though), we’ve got Ninjas and that’s just about it? Should be a nice week!

~I took advantage of the Erin Condren Black Friday sale and grabbed a flamingo sherpa throw. I’ll report back on it when it arrives, but I’m hoping it’s pretty fabulous.


~Subscription box wise this week I should be getting some of my POPSUGAR Special Edition boxes (not too sure which ones yet), Pampered Mommy, Five Four Club, FabFitFun, my GLOSSYBOX Holiday Box, Powered Geek Box, and that may well be it?  I have a bunch of boxes to get caught up on this week too, so be ready!

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

Sunday Sentiments


~Good evening! Did anyone do any Black Friday shopping?? I went to Target friday and got the kids a few things and went to a local LuLaRoe Open House yesterday. I always feel weird about going to a stranger’s house like that, but she was super nice and it was fine.
~Elfster Secret Santa matches have been drawn and people have started shipping their gifts already! Hello, overachievers much??? LOL! I’m still working on shopping ;). I signed up for the Reddit Secret Santa too, so that should be fun.

~Who watched Gilmore Girls over the weekend??  I’m not totally done yet, so don’t wreck the “Final Four Words”!
~Has anyone’s Elf on the Shelf returned? Ours (Fred) is back and will likely be forgetting to return back to the North Pole soon!  LOL.  Luckily he’s not too sneaky and doesn’t get into elaborate things like some of his Elf friends.

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

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~We had a great Thanksgiving! And so did B. He’s still out of town, but thankfully one of his co-workers invited him to have dinner with his family. People are amazing.

~I am still smiling about the Decor Steals Christmas Mystery Crate that was on sale the other day. I can’t wait to get that in the mail ;).

~The boys went up-north for the night and they’ve got SNOW up there!

~Target had (well has) 30% off clothing plus an additional 15% off on Cartwheel. Score!!

~The Lions won their Thanksgiving game. I don’t want to get ahead of myself (because it’s the Lions), but could this be their year????

~Our Elf (on the Shelf) is on his way here from the North Pole and should arrive today! I am not sure I am 100% smiling about this, but the kids will be!

~It’s going to be an amazing day of football!

~That’s it from here! What are you smiling about today?

Friday’s Letters

Dear Thanksgiving, You were fun! I wish we did this more than once a year ;).

Dear Sephora, I always leave your website frustrated after Black Friday, but it never stops me from trying.

Dear The Lions, What?  Who are you guys?  Another win??????

Dear This Post, You are going to get buried in between 9 million Black Friday subscription box posts.  I am sorry.  So many deals.  So little time.

Dear W, Just because you are off school for a few days doesn’t mean “it’s over”.  You have to go back next week.  For real.

Dear The Water Bottle Flip, I hate you.  So much.

Dear The Hills, Nothing beats when you surprise me and show up on MTV.  The best.

Dear L, Amazing job on your reading this month!  You could teach me a thing or two about getting a book finished in a timely manner.

~Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving!! I am looking forward to a morning of watching parades and going through the sale papers, an afternoon of football and an evening of turkey and family!
~The boys had the day off from school yesterday so we thought it’d be a good day to go visit Santa (and go to Jeepers).  After waiting in a very long line one year, I learned my lesson and we now go visit him VERY early in the season ;).
~If you are planning on doing some subscription box shopping today / tomorrow, make sure to check out the Black Friday tab to see if there is a discount!  If there isn’t one up yet, don’t worry, there probably will be soon ;).

That’s it from here, have a great Thanksgiving!!!
