Thursday Thoughts


It’s Thursday so I’m linking up with Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.

There is just way too much new television for me to keep up with right now… and they all seem to be bunched together on the same nights.  I will catch up though.  I had to watch The Middle and the 1 hour Modern Family last night – therefore missing Survivor… and then I was too tired to watch Nashville (I know right, WHAT happened to Rayna James, no no don’t tell me for real).

DON’T tell me what happened… I didn’t watch it yet.


NF is crazy.  He is the FASTEST little guy ever.  Last night I took him to the mall to get his feet measured… because I suspected he’d out grown his sneakers?  (AHH he only wore those Jordans for 4 MONTHS!)  And he was sprinting around the store full speed, only to stop and give him self a kiss in the mirror?  He acts as if we keep him in a cage… oh wait… NO we don’t REALLY… but we do block him off to a play area in our apartment, otherwise our recyclables, garbage can, toilets, cabinets, bookcase, etc etc would be destroyed in under an hour.  And unfortunately his blocked off play area we named “the cage” – I have to be careful using this phrase around people who don’t know about “the cage”… because I’m sure they imagine like an animal crate… NO we do NOT keep our toddler in an animal crate, I promise.

Okay, so I’m brand new to this buying kids sneakers thing.  I’ve found that the Jordans are like… by far better quality than the other brands… and they have that back loop… which is KEY to me getting NF’s sneakers on…. so that’s how I justify spending like twice as much on these.  I just had no idea that he’d out grow them so quickly!  I decided I’d better have another boy, so he can enjoy all these toddler size Jordans.

Looking back I probably could have gotten his feet measured… and then went online to shop around for a better deal in his size… ugh… next time mama.  I learn as I go.


Jordan TR ’97



SO… I just learned what  PSL is.  I’ve been reading it… and thinking WHAT is that, and I think I need one too since everyone seems to be saying they need one.  I have to thank Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for quickly answering my question.  It’s a pumpkin spice latte… duhhh.  Someone should make a blog acronym list… I’d love it.

Oh, and I just found out after checking the starbucks website… that a Salted Caramel Mocha Frap, tall with nonfat milk and no whip cream… is only 200 calories… here I am walking around target thinking I’m drinking half the calories I should have in a day… and I WASN’T!  This could be dangerous knowledge.  I think I’m going to start calling this the SCMF… do you think that’ll catch on?

OH… and I start my Chinese cooking class tonight.
