Sunday Sentiments


~Good evening! We had such a busy weekend around here. My cousins were down from up-north and we spent the day downtown (Detroit) yesterday and went to see the Lego Batman movie today.   We went to Belle Isle, hit up some local shops, had dinner at Green Dot Stables and just enjoyed the city.  We all liked the move today too.  I love that they throw some adult humor in there.

~Does anyone have any good recommendations for dry skin? I thought maybe it was an allergic reaction (and it may well be), but my skin has been super itchy lately. The more I think about it, the more it itches which might also be an issue.  LOL!

~Does anyone else still play Pokemon Go?  I do (I mean the kids do) and I am super excited about all these new guys!  I have zero idea who any of them are or what they do, but I love catching them!

~My cousin was telling me today about all the “Peep” flavored items that will be sold this year, including Oreo Peeps. I don’t necessarily like Peeps, but it’s more the texture than the flavor, so I think I will like these.

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

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~B is home! He’s been in Korea for the last 6 weeks, but he got home safe and sound yesterday. Yay!!!

~L did not, as I originally thought, get a 21% on some test in gym class. Turns out it was 21 laps and it just showed as a percentage in the grading system online. LOL. Oops!

~W had a great time at his painting field trip. And his car turned out great!

~The weather is supposed to be gorgeous today! 60 and sunny in Michigan in February? That’s just about beach weather.

~The boys have off school all next week for Winter Break.  We don’t have any big plans, but we’ll find something fun to do.

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

Friday’s Letters

Dear B, We can’t wait to see you!

Dear The Daily Recap Newsletter, You’ll be back just as soon as I can make sure you aren’t capturing updated posts as “new” and including them in the recap. #thisisharderthanitseems

Dear L, I swear, when you don’t feel the best, sleeping more helps.  Seriously. I am not just trying to trick you into going to bed earlier.  I promise.

Dear My Mom and My Brother, Thanks for helping me be in 3 places at once today! It really does take a village.

Dear W, I am looking forward to your field trip today!

Dear FabFitFun, I am so ready for spoilers!

Dear Meijer, Thanks for always having Riced Cauliflower Veggies in stock. And thanks to my mom for grocery shopping there. WalMart and Kroger, you have been letting me down.

Dear Morning Radio Shows, Yeah, I didn’t really realize how inappropriate you could be until I had kids (well, one kid) in the car who knew what you were saying.  Luckily we weren’t driving any other kids that day.  Oops.

Dear Instagram Live, You are pretty fun.  I have no what I would ever go live for, but I like watching other people.

Thursday Thoughts


~Good morning! This week has been all about Valentine’s parties and getting stuff ready for the parties. I volunteered at L’s and had a ball. Below is just a sampling of all of the Valentine’s and Valentine’s goodies they brought home. So fun!

~I still have a handful of subscription boxes coming this week including BurgaBox, Adore Me, BOXYCHARM, Stitch Fix, Beauty Box 5, Fabletics, BuddhiBox and a handful of others.  I can’t wait to see what’s coming in my Stitch Fix!

~B’s  still traveling (he will be home very soon though) and, against his better judgement, is helping me find Alice + Olivia Starbucks mugs. Also, speaking of Starbucks, your local store *should* have the Lilly Pulitzer S’well bottles now (they officially came out on the 15th) and they will be online “later this Spring”.

~What’s everyone doing this weekend? My cousin and her kids are coming down from up-north and we’re planning to hit up some spots downtown (Detroit) and pretend we are tourists for the day.  And we’re all going to see Lego Batman!  I can’t wait.

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

So What Wednesday!


This week I am saying so what if…

~I wish Buddy could tell me what he dreamed about. He makes the crazies noises when he sleeps.
~I was basically speechless watching Farrah’s (Teen Mom) Mom’s music video. Was that for real?
~I have taken 4 days worth of gummy hair, skin and nails vitamins and am wondering why my hair isn’t thick and long yet?
~While I love all the sunshine we’ve been having it makes me realize just how dirty my windows are.
~I got Shamrock Shakes as a special Valentine’s treat for the boys. #holidaymixing
~I have Netflix cheated on B. I am sorry. #notreally
~I forgot how intense (and fun) a game of musical chairs could be.
~I never did get around to decorating the house for Valentine’s Day. On the bright side, I won’t have to put those decorations away now that it’s over.

What are you saying so what to this week?

Two on Tuesday!

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 9.24.19 PM

1. First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! Second of all, what is your favorite flower? I think my all-time favorite would be ranunculus!  Maybe because I don’t see them a ton? But really, any kind of flower is good in my book. B sent me an Iris and Tulip Bouq for Valentine’s Day and it’s stunning.  The colors just pop and I can’t stop looking at them.  One thing about the Bouqs though is that the flowers come so fresh that opening them doesn’t give you instant gratification.  It’s kind of a surprise if you aren’t expecting it, but the flowers can be basically buds.  Mine usually take a day or two to bloom (he sent them late last week), but I love the process!

2. What is your favorite beverage?  Ahh, I hate to say it, but my favorite is still Diet Pepsi.  That will never change.  But I do always always start my day with Spark (Fruit Punch usually). I drop a scoop into about 30oz of water and drink it before making any food choices for the day.  I think it helps me slow down and make better decisions.  It certainly keeps me from cracking a Diet Pepsi at 8am you know?

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

Monday Morning Ramblings


~Good morning! This weekend was all about Valentine’s Day around here. We shopped for Valentine’s, addressed Valentine’s, got goodie bags together, prepped teacher gifts, did a project for L’s teacher, you name it, we did it!


~Lots of subscription boxes coming this week! I am expecting Stitch Fix, Fabletics (mine was super delayed this month), BuddhiBox, Love With Food, Birchbox and a bunch of others!  Should be a good week.

~The Grammy’s.  I don’t even know where to begin.  So much going on there. I am still nervous from Beyonce tipping back in that chair.  Eek!  Adele was amazing. I love that she called for a do-over because she wanted to make sure she got it right for George Micheal.  Bruno Mars was also incredible with his Prince tribute.  Wow.  Just wow.

~Two questions – 1) What kind of pillow do you use?  and 2) What (beginner) yoga dvd do you recommend?  I keep waking up with a sore neck and it’s got to be my pillow.  I’ve tried a few different ones and I don’t seem to be too great at picking them out on my own, so help!!  And yoga.  I’m not looking for anything too vigorous – just something to calm me down.  I am *hoping* for a dvd recommendation since I want it to be on my tv and not on my computer (I know I can connect them, but…), but if you have something fabulous you love, I want to hear it!

That’s it from here.  Have a great week!

Sunday Sentiments


~Good evening! It’s almost Grammy time! Is anyone else planning on watching? I have some Valentine’s things to cut out for L’s teacher, so I will be doing that while watching.

~Has anyone heard of the Perfected Rose by Bloomaker? I picked one up at Target and am fascinated by it. It’s a real rose that needs no water and is supposed to provide “long-lasting beauty”. How long I can’t figure out, but I will report back. It’s gorgeous that’s for sure.

~Weight Watchers is still going well.  I put on a coat yesterday that’s been too tight to wear for a while and was pleased to learn that it fits!  And then I reached into the pocket and found a bunch of snack-size candy wrappers, which I am pretty sure is the reason it stopped fitting in the first place.  #fail

~Did anyone see the new 50 Shades of Grey this weekend?  What’d you think?  It seems like everyone on Facebook went so I thought I’d ask!  And in a totally different direction, did anyone see the Lego Batman movie?  I think we are going next weekend and my boys cannot wait!

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