Happy Thursday! I am super excited this morning because Amanda decided to host a link up today to her Thursday “Thinking Out Loud” posts.
I am always thinking something so this gives me the perfect opportunity to let you in on my thoughts of the moment. I know you are excited.
Before we get started, thank you to everyone who entered the #Kindawesome giveaway!

Now…without further ado, let’s take a look at what I am thinking:
1. In honor of our host, it is only fitting that I start today’s post showing you my collection of spoons.
Upon reviewing my stash of yogurt store plastic spoons the other day, I became curious as to where and when I got this purple spoon and then wondered why yogurt stores only seem to offer “girl” spoons.
As a kid, I always viewed my box of crayons in terms of “boy” colors and “girl” colors – you know, the reds, pinks and purples were the girl crayons and the blues, greens, yellows and ugly browns were the boy crayons.
If you are wondering why I didn’t list orange, I guess I just never formed an opinion about the orange crayon. Didn’t care to color with it but used it if I was drawing a rainbow and needed to complete the ROY G BIV.
Please tell me you recall ROY G BIV?
2. Maybe my labeling of colors boy and girl is the reason I can’t bring myself to try out blue or green shades of nail polish.
I can’t help but go with some shade of light pink to avoid seeing the chippage. Is chippage a word? I think it is, spellcheck doesn’t.
But then again, spellcheck is always putting a red line under DESSERT which always make me think that the person behind this whole spellcheck system is on some fad diet where dessert is off-limits and taking it out on the rest of us.
3. Dessert. Ah yes. Always on my mind.
My favorite partner in food crime and I ventured out in the snow and ice the other evening to enjoy my favorite Linda’s Fudge Cake. Am I the only one who orders the chocolate cakes at The Cheesecake Factory instead of cheesecake?
I just never learned to love cheesecake. Goes back to when I was a kid – the words cheese and cake should never have formed a compound word. Cup and cake, yes…cheese and cake, just no.
Although, to be fair, I have allowed my spoon to taste the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Cheesecake which is slowly changing my opinion.
4. I need to talk spoons again. Seems to be a theme in this post, yes? I just can’t help but mention that I only use a spoon to eat my dessert, even if it is cake. No forks allowed for dessert. Oh and the smaller the spoon, the better. Actually, I like to eat all of my meals using small utensils.
5. I am beginning to think that part of being a child means thinking your parents aren’t cool.
Last night the little boy and I attended some sort of Book Bonanza at our local Barnes and Noble to benefit his school.
As we walked in, he firmly whispered to me, and I quote:
“I see people I know so walk away from me. Go. Go the other way.”
Really? And here I thought I was cool. There goes my high self-esteem again.
6. I can’t seem to give up reading an actual newspaper.
Call me old-fashioned, but I just can’t bring myself to cancel my paper delivery.
I have been on the fence about canceling for a while now and every time I think I am ready to make the call, I get a bunch of coupon inserts like these that came yesterday. How can I pass up the newspaper perks of BOGO for frozen yogurt?
7. Another thing I can’t pass up right now are fun knee socks.
They keep me all warm and cozy and fit nice inside my boots. In fact, they are the only positive to come out of the recent frigid and snowy weather.
Is it wrong that I plan to get myself some more knee socks from Little Miss Matched?
They have so many fun patterns like these Big Apple socks. I may have to check them out.
And you need to check out the rest of the Thinking Out Loud posts! Thanks Amanda for the link-up!

What color is on your nails?
Cheesecake or chocolate cake?
Do you take home the yogurt store spoons?
