I seriously contemplated doing the whole Thursday is for Thinking Out Loud thing earlier in the week but I thought it may confuse you into thinking it was actually Thursday when it was only Tuesday and that is a really mean thing for me to do to you so I didn’t.
So today really is Thursday and I am excited to finally share with you lots of random things.
I know school just ended but I am already excited about the school supply section popping up in Target.
This new line of pretty school supplies at Target makes me want to register for a course or two. A course that requires marble notebooks and binders with dividers and pencil pouches but not a ruler. I hate math.
I would live vicariously through my son and his school supplies but he is a boy and boys are boring and can’t use pink or purple notebooks.
He does need binders and dividers though (already received his supply list!) so I am hoping he lets me set all the notebooks up. Live for that.
Speaking of boys, I laughed at this tank top in Bloomingdales last week.
You just can’t trust technology but at the same time, girls can’t actually text again to see if the boy received a text.
It’s a double standard my friends since the boy can totally text the girl again if she doesn’t answer and they are even allowed to follow-up with the ????? (I hate overpunctuation) but the girl just cannot. Put down your phone and fight the urge otherwise it becomes a you-are-insane-and-obsessive type of situation even if technology is the one to blame.
I liked this tank too.
Do you believe in Karma? I do. For sure. Along with horoscopes and the Long Island Medium.
Let’s talk ice cream. Do you make it at home? Aside from our banana “ice cream” I mean.
I saw this ice cream maker in Williams Sonoma last week and from the instructions on the display, it looked really easy.
It even comes in purple which made me think of the Barbie Ice Cream Parlor I had as a little girl (which was pink but I associate pink with purple) which I recall let you make real life ice cream for yourself and not just plastic scoops for Barbie…that is if your parents let you which mine didn’t because I would make a mess.
So there’s a book on my nightstand.
The first step to returning to reading on a regular basis was getting to the library and bringing the book home. I am hopeful that actually having a library book on my nightstand which is due back in two weeks will encourage me to open it and read it.
Can you talk to me about Vitamin Water?
Water shouldn’t contain 31 grams of sugar and “naturally sweetened” is trying to trick us into thinking that the second ingredient of cane sugar isn’t really sugar.
I tried to explain this to my son but he didn’t want to hear it.
He told me the sugar is from the vitamin part of the water but that makes no sense and he knows that but he is really good at making a case for a guilty party.
All the kids are drinking this sugar water by the bottle-load at camp so he insisted upon drinking it as well when I think they all might as well be drinking Kool-Aid.
Don’t the other parents have a fruit infusion pitcher? Shouldn’t the camp have fruit infusion pitchers?
I hate to be a party booer so I let him get a few bottles so long as he promised to only add half to his water bottle which is already filled with real water.
If the kid wants a cookie, I will give him a cookie and probably offer to serve it a la mode.
Sugar inside of cookies I can justify. Sugar in water? Only if it is the frozen kind like a snow cone.
Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today!
How often do you forget what day it is?
What book is currently on your nightstand? Please share chick-lit/light-hearted funny novels with me!
Do you have an ice cream maker? Is it worth it?
