So What Wednesday…


This week I am saying so what if…

~I actually googled Ronnie and Sammi from Jersey Shore the other day to see what they are up to now.
~I thought today was Thursday.  #nope
~I like tracking packages online just to see the crazy routes they take to get to me.
~Now that we have a new mailman I kind of miss the other crazy one.
~Just when I think Teen Mom can’t get any worse, it gets worse. #trainwreck
~I didn’t know the Spring Starbucks cups has designs already on them.  I thought B drew a vase on mine for me.  Uhh, no.
~I’m making Wisconsin my team.
~My kids want to start hunting for Easter eggs now.  And heck, maybe we will?
~I absolutely cannot resist a grab bag. I can not.

What are you saying so what to this week?

1. What is your favorite magazine?  I don’t read as many magazines as I used to, but I always loved Marie Claire and Allure.  And of course US Weekly, Star, People, etc.  Randomly I received a Seventeen magazine in the mail yesterday and loved it.  Do you remember the back to school issues?  They were giant and the absolute best!

2. What was the last movie you saw?  I watched Wolf of Wall Street the other night.  It was on one of the “normal” cable channels (not one of the pay movie channels) and all the curse words were edited out.  So basically I watched half of the movie ;).

That’s it from here! I’m looking forward to hearing your answers.  And also, Happy Birthday to my brother!!!! He reads here every once in a while and usually leaves a few snarky comments here and there ;).

Monday Morning Ramblings


~Good morning!  All is well here!  L and W have normal weeks at school and B is in town for the next few weeks.  Buddy and Buster are still besties and really, that’s about it.

~This week I am expecting FabFitFun, Hamptons Lane, BOXYCHARM, Five Four Club, POPSUGAR Resort, Beauty Box 5 and probably a handful of others.  I have a few boxes to get caught up on, so hopefully (?) this will be a slow week.

~Did anyone see Beauty and the Beast this weekend?  What did you think (I am hearing it was amazing)?  Would my boys like it?I tend to think L would, but W has trouble with non-cartoon movies in the theatre.

~My brackets are a complete disaster, but some of you guys (like Vicki) are doing AMAZING!  Seriously, my mind is blown.  Actually, my bracket looks okay right now, but I don’t think I have many teams left which isn’t a good thing. LOL!

~Has anyone tried magnetic lashes?  What do you think? Are they hard to apply?  I have never had to much luck with false lashes, but maybe magnetic ones would be different?

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

Sunday Sentiments


~Good evening! Well, my Spartans lost. Whomp whomp. I feel like the final score doesn’t really show that it was actually a good game, but it was. Up till the last 5 minutes anyway ;).  Oh well, there is always next year.

~We finally made it to the new MOD Pizza that opened near us and it was delicious. It’s a design-your-own pizza style chain where you pay one price and get to add as many toppings as you want to your pizza.  I won’t be surprised if we end up back there again this week ;).


~We caught up on Designated Survivor and Homeland this weekend and, as usual, Carrie Mathison is making poor decisions left and right.  LOL!  I am not even kidding when I say I need a character legend to follow these shows.  I spend half the time watching and the other half trying to decide who is who and which side they are on.

~I mentioned yesterday how “my” Target got self-scanners, but they also now carry the Soap & Glory line!  And they had some fun mini Revo lip balms in the Easter section.  I know that some Target’s carry the Baby Foot peel in-store and I hope that’s coming to my store next ;).  My feet need that right now and as much as I like Heel Genius, I fear it’s not going to be quite enough.

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

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~B is home!  He hasn’t been gone too long (less than 2 weeks), but it’s always better to have him here than away.

~My Spartans won last night!  And they looked good.  SO GOOD.

~L and I went to Target yesterday after his half day and picked out his report card reward, got a Slurpee and then he got to pick the lunch place. It was so nice to hang out with just him!

~Our Target has self-checkout! This may not be exciting for most people, but L and I were thrilled.  It’s the little things.

~We are finally going to try out the new pizza place that opened by us today. I cannot wait.

~We have had more sunshine these past few days than we’ve had in ages.  It was amazing.

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

Friday’s Letters

Dear Parallel Parking, I don’t know when exactly they taught you in Driver’s Training, but I am going to go ahead and assume I missed that day. #clueless #illjustparksomewhereelse

Dear March Madness, I love you!

Dear Michigan State, Everyone will be wearing their St. Patrick’s Day green, but I will have my MSU green on!  Go State!!!!!!!

Dear Buster, I think you are going to fit in just fine around here!

Dear B, We can’t wait to see you this weekend!!!

Dear L, Thank you for being such a good big brother.  I know you won’t want your little brother bunking in your room forever, but I think it’s so sweet you let him take over the bottom bunk for now.

Daylight Savings Time, I don’t know why, but I am still tired.  And so are my kids.  #itsonlyanhour

Thursday Thoughts


~Good morning! All is well here. B is still out of town but should be back in a few days. L got his report card yesterday and did awesome.  And not too much is new with W, but he’s good!

~I still have so many subscription boxes on the way including Bespoke Post, FabFitFun, bluum, Hamptons Lane, POPSUGAR Resort, BuddhiBox, Stitch Fix, Kiwi Crate, Doodle Crate, Tinker Crate, ToGoSpa, Bokksu, ipsy, and a few more that I can’t figure out what they are.

~Just a few hours till the beginning of March Madness!  I’m a little (A LOT) obsessed with college basketball, and this is my favorite time of year.  Michigan State plays tomorrow, and I get extra nervous for their games, but really, I love them all.  I decided to do a little March Madness group after all (no prizes – just for fun), but you have to make your picks by 12:15 pm EST (the start time of the first game) TODAY!

~Can we talk about The Bachelor finale? I am still scratching my head on that one.  I was NOT expecting that. At all.  I had such high hopes for this season too.  Oh well.  Now it’s on to Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelorette!

~Uhh, have you seen these mom jeans making the rounds on the internet? I think I had that same pair (minus the clear patches) when I was like 13.  And I thought they were amazing.  But the clear patches.  I do not get it? I never want to show off my knees, and if I did want to show them off, I would want my knees to be centered in the clear part.  I suspect a Jenner / Kardashian will wear these soon and they’ll be all the rage ;).  My knees will still say no, though.

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

So What Wednesday…


This week I am saying so what if…

~I am still tired from Spring Forward.
~I’m so over watching April not have the baby giraffe.
~I was super nervous about being the Mystery Reader in L’s class.  It was really fun though!
~I get all these alerts on my phone and I cannot figure out how to turn them off??
~I’ll be happy if MSU gets thru just the first round this year.
~I am still SO MAD about The Bachelor finale.  UGH.
~I kind of wish we would have gotten hit with at least some of that snow the East Coast did.
~I don’t know why it was 70 degrees in February and it’s 15 degrees in March, but I don’t like it.
~I love having a puppy in the house!

1. What is your favorite fast food restaurant? You guys, I have been LOVING Taco Bell these past few months. Their shredded chicken tacos (Fresco) are amazing and just 3 points each.

2. If you were stranded on a desert island and could take 3 personal items with you, what would they be? The kids in L’s class asked me this yesterday (LOL) and I answered my cell phone, lip balm, and a blanket to sleep on.  They told me I should have picked a boat .  LOL!

That’s it from here! I can’t wait to hear your answers!  And, whatever you are doing today, have a great day!
