Thursday Thoughts

 

TTGood-copyI’m again linking up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for her Thursday Thoughts link-up.

~ I can’t believe I haven’t posted for TWO weeks!!!  Life has been crazy and I think it’s going to continue being crazy for the next two weeks.

~ We went to Sesame Place with my parents and the girls last week and had a blast!  It was not their first time going, and it was as much fun as ever!  I’ll post more pictures and a review later this week, but it was a successful trip.

~ I’m still searching for ways to lower the phone, cable, internet bill.  Unfortunately, we only have one good internet provider and that means that we are stuck with them and their crazy high prices.  I think we are switching to Directv though (we had it about 5 years ago) – it’s a significant enough savings that the switch will be worth it.

~ We will be ordering our first Men’s Fabletics outfit today.

~ I really need to go grocery shopping.  We are starting to run out of the basics (like milk).

~ My work is closed tomorrow and my husband is doing a 10K and the girls are doing a Fun Run.  That’s about it for our 4th of July plans.

What’s on your mind this week?

Jamberry #Throwback Thursday

I was so excited when Jamberry announced that they would be bringing back retired designs every other Thursday for the summer.  We have no idea what they will be bringing back, but each design is only available for five days.

This week’s are: Guacamole and Cut Loose

These aren’t really my style, but I know Guacamole is one that many people look for in trade groups and ebay and seems to be really hard to find.

~ Ava was sick yesterday and I stayed home with her which has completely thrown off my schedule.  I have no idea what day it is :)

~ Today is Ava’s last day of school (still undecided on if she will be going).  She has been cleared by the dr. to go, but I’m only going to send her if she seems up to it.

~ Our crazy birthday party weekends will be continuing this weekend.  We have one on Saturday, plus a graduation party, then Sunday is another party and Father’s Day.

~ I have all the teacher’s gifts done and will take a picture and post later – after I’m done sanitizing the house :)

~ Thank goodness for my planner.  I feel like we would have missed something important if we didn’t have it all written down.

What’s on your mind this week?

Thursday Thoughts

 

TTGood-copyI’m again linking up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for her Thursday Thoughts link-up.

~ First, Happy Birthday to my brother, Scott!

~ I am loving the new Erin Condren planners!  I really want the Rose Gold with the horizontal layout, but I am undecided.  My current planner is good through the end of 2015, so I really don’t need to decide yet, but I may get one now for 2016 just because I am so intrigued by the new layout.

~ Only one more week of school left for Ava and one and two days left for Ella!  I can’t wait to take their last day of school pictures, and I really need to get going on their teacher’s gifts.  Last year, I did these, so I’ll probably do something similar this year.  I really need to get that done this weekend!

~ Tonight is the last night of Spring Soccer.  We’ve had great weather for the eight weeks, and it has flown by.  I can’t believe that it’s already time to start planning the Fall!

~ Today I said goodbye to Birchbox.  I was going to write a full post, but basically we have an overload of samples, so I’d rather not spend the money right now for products we don’t need.  I’m thinking we’ll probably buy some gift subscriptions for each other at Christmas time (hopefully by then I will have used up all my extras!) when there are good deals for gifting a subscription.

~ I’ve started running again.  So far my time is steady at about a 12 minute mile, but I’m doing it.  I’m getting out there three times a week and running.

~ I’m also going to start 21 Day Fix again.  I used to own the program, but don’t anymore.  However, I use an app that helps me track all the portions and food groups.  After doing really well and losing about 5 lbs, I’ve been completely STUCK  for weeks.  I’m hoping that this will get the scale moving in the right direction again.

~ And in my biggest news, I have decided to tackle Jen at iheartorganizing’s Four Week “Wait No More” Organizing Challenge!  I’ve been struggling trying to organize and clean out and a lot of what she wrote in her post really hit home with me.  I’ve been discouraged because I know some people view the lack of organization as being lazy or slobs, but it’s really just a loss of direction.  I started with the worst room in our house…our bedroom!  I can’t wait to show you the before and afters tomorrow.

That’s it from here this week (feels like that was a lot!)

Thanks for reading!

This week’s Throwback Thursday wraps are Sunset Ombre and Summer Sunburst!

I LOVE how these two pair so well together.  They are absolutely perfect for summer (and only available until June 8).

~ I am still so behind on reviews, but life has been CRAZY lately.  I think I’ll have time to get them written tonight and tomorrow so they can be posted over the next few days.

~ Both girls have Bagels and Books at school this week.  I went to Ella’s yesterday and Ava’s is today.  It’s so cute to see them with their friends!

~ We had rain at the beginning of the week and now it’s finally clearing.  I’m so happy because we have soccer tonight and there’s nothing worse than standing outside in the rain for soccer practice.

~ I can’t believe it’s already June!

~ I think I mentioned that we downgraded our cable, so this week I’ve been trying to get used to finding shows on Hulu and Amazon instead of watching them when they are on.  I would have gotten rid of cable, but it was more expensive to get rid of it than it was to keep it.

What’s on your mind this week?
