Thursday Thoughts


Resized-5JHE4

~Good morning!  All is well here.  The boys are up-north with my mom for a few days and are having a ball.  We don’t start back to school here until after Labor Day so we are still in summer vacation mode!

~B and I are taking advantage of our kid-free time by trying out some new-to-us places around town.  Last night we had dinner at Blake’s Tasting Room. Blake’s is a local apple orchard that I have been going to since I was a kid.  A few years ago they branched out into hard cider and now sell it throughout the Midwest.  Anyway, in addition to having the apple orchard, pumpkin patch, etc. they also have a Tasting Room / Bar with their hard ciders and wines and a small food menu.  It’s really cool and I cannot believe it has taken us so long to get there.  We will for sure be going back.

~We also watched Snatched (with Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer) this week.  Have you seen it?  I will admit I laughed watching it, but it was so stupid.  So stupid.  I think it was supposed to be like that and I would probably watch it again, but still! LOL!

~If you haven’t been to Target lately, get there now and get some deals on all the brands they are discontinuing (Merona, Mossimo, etc.)!  Most things were 50 – 70% off and then an additional 20% off with Cartwheel. I’m excited for the new brands, but I also don’t mind these amazing deals!!!

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

So What Wednesday…

swwbig_zps16efcc06

This week I am saying so what if…

~I spent a ridiculous amount of time on thredUP last night “window shopping”.
~I am already planning for the next eclipse.  #justsevenyearsaway
~90 Day Fiance is everything right now.  Everything.
~I am not sure I will ever try to give up Diet Pepsi again. It never works.
~I can’t wait for the teacher assignments to come in the mail!
~I can’t help my laugh when Bella goes running around with my shoes.  She’s little, but she makes carrying a big shoe seem easy.
~I think I have gained 10lbs since B has arrived home.  It’s been fun though!
~I was this close to getting my fall decorations out this week, but thought I shoudl restrain myself.  #tooearly

What are you saying so what to this week?

Two on Tuesday!

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 9.24.19 PM
1) Did you watch the eclipse yesterday?  What’d you think?  We watched it and I was surprised by how cool it was.  L liked it too, but I’m not sure how impressed W and B were. LOL!  We only had 78% coverage here so I can only imagine how amazing it was in the areas of totality.  It looked incredible on tv!  We are so going to plan a road trip to see the full one in 2024!

2) Do you make your bed everyday?  I absolutely do.  Every single day.  It doesn’t matter who is going to see it or know if it’s made or not – I know!  Plus it just feels better (to me) to crawl into a “made” bed at the end of the day!

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

Monday Morning Ramblings

MondayMorningRamblings-1024x1010-1

~Good morning! It’s eclipse day! We’ve got our glasses ready and hopefully the clouds stay away.

~Subscription box wise this week I am expecting Five Four Club, Craftly, Smartass & Sass, Geeky Decal, Something Snacks and a handful of others. I am really hoping we get our first POPSUGAR Fall Box spoiler this week too! I feel like we’re overdue for one.

~90 Day Fiance was the normal trainwreck this week. I’m not sure any of these couples will make it long-term. If any of them I would pick Jorge and Anfisa, which I know sounds crazy, but I think he’s going to work at winning her back.  I need to watch the latest Before the 90;s Days episode because I think that’s where the real mess is this season.

~Is anyone on MyFitnessPal?  I stopped Weight Watchers a while ago and think I need to get back on the tracking train.  If you are on there, what’s your user name?

~That’s it from here (not much to talk about today).  Have a great day!

Sunday Sentiments

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

~Good evening! How is it Sunday night already? We had a great weekend. Some relaxing mixed in with a lot of fun. We finally went and checked out the semi-pro (I’m actually not sure what it is) baseball stadium near our house. It’s fantastic. Good food, reasonable prices, tons of fun activities and, of course, a baseball game! After the game the kids got to run the bases and we all played “Launch a Ball”. It’s $1 a ball and you have to throw your tennis ball from over the field in right field into one of the hula hoops they have on the field. And it has to stay in the hoop. L won and got a free t-shirt. He was SO excited and so were we. I never would have gotten it ;).

 

~Are you ready for the Eclipse tomorrow??  We have our glasses, but I feel like this might be a letdown?  I suspect the tv coverage is going to be way better than peeping at it through those glasses.

~I posted this on my Instagram Stories the other day, but I found some Slurpee Chapsticks at 7-11. They had Cotton Candy and Watermelon Lime. I LOVE the Cotton Candy. If you can find one, I’d recommend it.

~Who is watching 90 Day Fiance tonight??  Can we get some George and Anfisa in this episode?  PLEASE?  Can someone spoil it for me (of you know) and tell me if they are still together?  I am going with yes?

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

Saturday Smiles

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~B is home! He’s been in Mississippi for the past 6 weeks doing some National Guard stuff.We are thrilled to have him home!

~We had Chipotle for lunch yesterday and it was worth every single one of the 10 million calories it contained.

~The last few nights have been perfect sleeping weather.

~Having B home also means my car is home! I have been driving his big truck while he was gone and I am THE WORST at parking that thing!

~We went fishing last night and the boys both caught fish! Lots of them actually. It’s possible the same few fish were caught multiple times, but it doesn’t matter. They had a great time!

What are you smiling about today?

Thursday Thoughts


Resized-5JHE4

~Good morning! I feel like this week should be over by now. LOL! B should be home tonight / tomorrow and I am so ready!

~So far this week the kids have been to camp, out for pizza, to Toys R Us to use some gift cards they had, to a new playground, and we went to the local fair yesterday. And it’s only Thursday!

~The Glow Ride at cycle was super fun. Loud, but fun.  Theme rides are my favorite.  It doesn’t even feel like you are working out!  Well, okay, it does, but it also kind of feels like you are at a dance party.   They have an 80’s/90’s ride with pizza/beer after coming up which should be good too!

~Have you gotten your eclipse glasses yet?  Seems like they are getting pretty hard to come by now?  I found mine (and some for my cousins) at Kroger, but from what I am hearing all the stores near me are sold out now.  I know a lot of people bought theirs from Amazon and now it turns out they aren’t safe, so that’s probably making them harder to find in-store too??

~L (he’s 9) is pretty interested in cooking and I am looking for some ideas on what kind of foods he can make himself (with me there of course)?  He’s pretty good at pancakes, and I’m thinking along the lines of grilled cheese, scrambled eggs, etc. Any suggestions??

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

So What Wednesday…

swwbig_zps16efcc06

This week I am saying so what if…

~Instead of going to the bar with my friends, we all go to group exercise classes together.  Times have changed!
~I know nothing about boxing or UFC, but even I want to watch the Mayweather – McGregor fight.
~I love seeing all the different rocks people are painting.  Listen, there are some talented rock painters out there.
~I am pretty sure I am going to win the PowerBall.  LOLOLOLOL.
~Spin class was so hot yesterday that I could barely hold my hand weights.  #sweaty
~I am so ready for B to get home. #afewmoredays #itsbeen6weeks
~I can’t wait to see what’s in this season’s Avenue A box!
~I love when the dogs (well Buster and Bella) snuggle!
~I can’t help but laugh when W does something naughty and then says “I don’t want to talk about it” when I ask him to tell me what happened.  His gameface is ON!

What are you saying so what to this week?
