Today I’m Smiling Because…

~L did amazing on his Progress Report. I am so proud!!!

~I have been working on reorganizing posts and *think* I found a better way to organize reviews. It’s not perfect, but it’s better.

~I am trying out Orange Theory today and I can’t wait!

~The rain stopped just long enough yesterday for the sun to peek out for a few minutes. It was much needed.

~I got my new Erin Condren planner ordered! I couldn’t resist the freebies!

~It looks like B should be home for a while after this weekend!  Of course that could all change, but we’d love to have him home for at least a few weeks!

~I’m getting the paperwork together this weekend to register W for kindergarten!  He is SO excited to go to L’s school next year!

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

Friday’s Letters

Dear B, It was fun to have you home, even if it was just for a few hours. See you in a few days!

Dear L, Good luck on testing at school today!

Dear W, I don’t know why you want your name to be Jeff, but that’s what I’ll call you from now on.

Dear Orange Theory, I can’t wait to try you this weekend!

Dear This Rain, GO AWAY. Or at least bring warm weather with you.

Dear May, You are shaping up to be a great subscription box month. I can’t wait to see what else you bring!

Dear Me, Go to bed earlier.  Seriously.

Dear My Phone, How did you get constantly dirty? I must clean the lens a dozen times a day and it’s still dirty!

Dear  White  Couches,  You are still perfectly white!  I don’t know how long this will last, but I will soak it up while I can.  It’s only a matter of time before they are gross again I am sure.

Thursday Thoughts

Resized-5JHE4

~Good morning! Not too much to report here. L’s field trip got canceled today (rain / wind) so that’s disappointing, but they are going to try and reschedule. I’ve got some errands to run today (including Costco) and I need to get some prizes shipped out as well! Buster is getting huge (he’s almost as big as Buddy) and I am thinking I may end up with a 50lb. Teddy Bear dog. I’m kidding of course, but he is getting so big!

~I still have a few boxes coming this week including Stitch Fix Men, Smart Art (I have a few Smart Art reviews I need to work on too), Fabletics, Menswear Club, Tea Runners, Yogi Surprise, Mommy Mailbox and a handful of others I can’t figure out. I am thinking we’ll get some POPSUGAR spoilers today and I really feel like we should be hearing about the summer limited edition box soon as well!

~I am still loving cycle and think I am going to try out Orange Theory this weekend as well. I have a friend who goes and loves it, so I’m going to tag along with her. I’ll report back!

Okay, that’s it from here. Have a great weekend!

So What Wednesday…

swwbig_zps16efcc06

This week I am saying so what if…

~I am kind of (okay a lot) obsessed with that Heinz commercial with the weiner dogs dressed like hot dogs.
~I accidently ended up with 5lbs weights on my bike at cycle and about fell off when I went to pick them up.  Oops.
~I have no idea what to get L for his birthday next weekend.  I know what he’ll tell me if  I ask (Pokemon cards), but I want to get him something a little more exciting than that!
~We are so paying for those 70 degree days we had in February right now. I almost needed gloves yesterday. #freezing
~I wish Jessica Simpson would do another reality show.
~I love checking out the prices for things on GOOP.
~I miss Goodies Co. and was just thinking about how I wish they’d do another box!

What are you saying so what to this week?

Two on Tuesday!

1. What was the first subscription box you ever signed up for? The first box I ever signed up for was POPSUGAR! It popped up in my Facebook feed before they launched in 2012 and I thought, wow, this looks fun. Little did I know what that would start! I am not 100% sure what was the first box I actually received though. My guess would be ipsy or Citrus Lane??

2. What was your first job?  Mine was working at the Dairy Queen! All my friends worked there too, so it was quite fun. Plus we got to eat all the ice-cream we wanted for free while we were there, which was also fun ;).

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

Monday Morning Ramblings

MondayMorningRamblings-1024x1010-1

~Good morning! Semi-busy week here. L has a field trip, B will be home (only for like a second though), and I just have a bunch of chores to get caught up on. I think I will feel better once that giant pile of laundry in my bedroom stops looking at me. LOL!

~Weight Watchers is going a little better. I think going to cycle in the morning helps me make better choices throughout the day. It’s like I don’t want to waste that workout! I am (finally) going to try Orange Theory when B gets home too! I have heard nothing but good things about it, so I hope I love it as well.

~Just a little update on my Perfected Rose.  It looks just the same as it did when I got it back in February (you can see the original post here).  Still smells like a rose too.  This is some magic right here!!!

~This week I should be getting Mine Chest (my kids NEED this to happen ASAP), Wine Awesomeness, Julep, GLOSSYBOX, Ellie, GlobeIn, Nomadik, Ecocentric Mom, Boxwalla and a handful of others.  I have my fingers crossed that Sports Crate ships this week and that we hear about a POPSUGAR Summer Limited Edition box this week as well.

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

Sunday Sentiments

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

~Good evening! I’m beat! I spent the majority of the weekend volunteering (mainly moving tables around) for our school’s Mom2Mom sale, and I am not sure if my arms will ever recover. LOL! The sale was packed though, so it was all worth it!

~While I was doing M2M stuff, my boys got to go to Day Out With Thomas! I *swear* W has been before, but I cannot find any pictures of it to show him. I know for sure we went a few times when L was younger (I can’t find any pictures of those trips either though?????). Anyway, W loved it and keeps saying “I can’t believe I got to go see Thomas.”  L skipped out on riding (and getting his picture with Thomas), but I know he had fun too.   He still can build the best train tracks ever too!

~I finished Big Little Lies last night, and it was incredible.  I stayed up way too late to watch the last few episodes, but there was no way I was going to bed without seeing them.  Do you think they’ll do another season?  The last episode ended where the book did, and there isn’t a second book, so…  I almost want them to leave it as is because I don’t know how it could get much better than this?

~Have you tried Caramel M&M’s yet? What did you think?  They weren’t exactly what I was expecting, but I did like them.  The crispy m&m shell is an interesting contrast to the creamy caramel center.  They are really chewy and would take a long time to melt in your mouth.  But that’s good because it slowed me down eating them ;).

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

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~My boys are having a great time at my parent’s house! They spent the night there so I could do PTO stuff last night / today and they are loving every second. They always do though!

~I got 10,000 steps in yesterday (12,500 to be exact). This NEVER happens. Yay!

~Remember the Cookies and Cream Popcorn that came in the August 2016 POPSUGAR? Well, I found single serving bags of it AND of Chocolate Chip bags at Walmart! #yesplease

~B said he’d go to cycle with me when he gets home from his trip.  He also claims he’ll be #1 in the class. I mean, I know he’ll beat me, but we’ll see about that one!

~Tonight is MODPizza night!  I cannot wait!!!!

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