~Monday. As usual it has come too soon. L is headed back to school today and B’s got a full week of work. The fun is over! It’s also freezing cold which isn’t super fun. But WB and I have a lot to keep us busy inside the house, so we will be okay.

~The new season of The Bachelor starts tonight! Yay! I love Chris and I hope he finds “The One” this season. Regardless I am sure there will be a few of the “most amazing” and “most dramatic” rose ceremonies ever I cannot wait!



~B and I are starting the Advocare 24-day Challenge tomorrow!  If you want in you can still order and get a free Blender Bottle with your purchase. They ship via FedEx so it won’t take long to arrive. I have already been cutting back on my Diet Pepsi intake, so hopefully the first few days aren’t too rough.

~I’ve got quite a few subscription boxes coming this week including Date in a CrateDottieboxFabletics, Julep, Koala CratePanier and I few more that are showing up in the USPS Tracking system that I can’t quite figure out. And I am really hoping for some January 2015 PopSugar spoilers!  Fingers crossed!

~Red Velvet M&M’s!  WHAT?  I won’t be able to try these for a few weeks, but hopefully one of you grabs them and tells me how amazing they are.  I think they were out last year for Valentine’s Day too, but I don’t recall trying them.  And I feel like that’s something I wouldn’t be able to forget!

~I need some travel experts to help me with this one.  What is the best time to book a flight?  How far in advance does it need to be done and what day of the week is the best to look?  I don’t really know exactly where we are going, or when, but I want to start pricing some stuff out!

~That’s about it for this morning.  What do you have planned for this week?

    Red Velvet M&Ms?! I hope I can get them in Canada!

    I think I read somewhere that 2/3 months away from your leaving date and on a tuesday are the best times to price… it could be 6 months out then re-checl 3 months out if I recall correctly

    Check out

    I usually always buy mine right about 2 months out, and on a Wednesday. I watch the prices fairly regularly for a few weeks, and Wednesday is always when they go down for me. I just bought a ticket to Hawaii last week, and I checked Thursday after I had purchased on Wednesday- sure enough, it had gone back up! I think it may vary too according to where you are going and how well the flights are selling as far as how far out to purchase.

    Red Velvet M&Ms!!! I need to try them. It’s cold here too. This week I am receiving Wantables Intimates and Loved & Blessed,

    I need to find another email provider. I tried to check my tracking today and can’t bring up my emails on the PC. Any suggestions?

  6. Kelsey A. says:

    Please post a review of Date in a Crate when you get that! I was just looking at their page and am interested.

    I think I should be getting a PetBox this week, and maybe a FabFitFun box that I bought half off! I am also excited to find out when the Dean Karnazes box will bill/ship from Quarterly. I gave in and signed up today.

    As far as flights, I heard 4 weeks prior on a Tuesday, but earlier seems better. I know Pinterest has a ton of info on that though. My flights are usually booked a week or so in advance so I never have had a chance to follow that.

    I keep checking your site for Popsugar Spoilers! Dying to see what is in this month’s box!

    I’m expecting julep this week as well though who really knows. I’m in Houston and my box has been just chilling in Fort Worth since last Wednesday.
