Thursday Thoughts


Today is Thursday and I am linking up with Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom!


I’m doing the Eat Well Live Well Challenge and I am on my 5th week.  This is a challenge through work and I am on a team.  You enter how many steps you took each day and servings of fruits and vegetables.  Well I am REALLY getting into the steps thing!  I love that my goal is 10,000 steps!  At the end of the night I can really gauge how active I was that day.  Anyone else use a pedometer?  I wonder if I’d love a fit bit or if it’d be too much.

SOO uhh what’s the deal with that missing plane huh?  I REALLY thought this morning they were going to say that they found it but… no they said we didn’t find it and actually they were looking in the wrong spot?  And now they’ll outsource the search teams and they won’t start back up again until August?  Whattt???  Everything about that just screams scandal to me.

Jenelle Evans is about to have her baby in June……I guess that’s all there is to say about that….


SOOO… I saw this on TMZ… and I was like huh that’s not lil kim that’s JWoww… but yes she does look a little lil kim like but I didn’t get it.  Then I saw on FB JWoww doing selfies with the middle finger at TMZ for making fun of a pregnant girl.  JWoww you look great girl – TMZ is just makin the $$.



Have you used  I am trying it for the first time…. I am renting this dress above for a fancy wedding I am going to in June (I have like many weddings this summer… but this one wedding I hope to look even better than better I guess?)…. so you order it for 4 days in 2 sizes… I hope it works out!!!

SO The designer of that dress is Nha Khanh… I just googled her… and a pic of Spencer from PLL comes up… whoa whoa whoa I love it I love it.

  • I am sad that all my tv show finales have happened… and now there is nothing I feel like watching on TV tonight.
  • I just ran a 5K and I feel great!
  • I am not ready to move into a house AT ALL

Skinny grande vanilla macchiato:  I got $100 bucks in starbucks gift cards from my birthday ok… I can drink like 24 of these things!!!  The description says… freshly steamed milk with vanilla-flavored syrup, marked with espresso and finished with vanilla drizzle.  mmmmm.
WHY is I Wanna Marry Harry is on TV: Okay okay maybe I’m not “loving” this show… actually no I’m not loving this show… but I think I love to talk about it.  Explain this to me…. so there are girls that want to marry prince Harry… and they go on this show to marry prince Harry and it’s a prince Harry look alike… but the girls STILL THINK IT’S PRINCE HARRY!?  Then they just get drunk and fight with each other??  At the end they’ll just be like hey dummies… his name is actually Matt.  Did these girls like sign everything under the sun promising not to sue FOX for humiliating them?  It’s insane?  I am positive I’d know it wasn’t actually prince Harry.  I can’t believe this concept actually made it to TV.

The Bachelorette Season 10

I have heard that at least a few individuals were disappointed I have not made a Bachelorette blog post. So here we go…

This is the 10th season of the Bachelorette and it seems like we’re in for a ride… and I sincerely hope it’s an entertaining ride because I find it so tedious to watch the first epsiodes of the Bachelor and Bachelorette… most of these characters will not spend much time on the show and I will not have needed to remember their name.  It usually takes me until about the 5th episode before I know MOST of their names…

SO some things you need to know about the Bachelorette before jumping right in… She was a contestant (is that insensitive to call them contestants?)  on the pervious Bachelor season.  She was totally into Juan Pablo and thennnnn she wasn’t… she hated him… I called it out right away… she is gunnin to be the bachelorette and she got the position!

SO let’s meet the guys and find out what I think… are you ready!?

There are 25 of them!?  Holy Moly.


First we have Chris… he’s 32 from Arlington, Iowa and is a farmer.


JJ… 30… his bow tie is memorable… but odd… he’s a pantsapreneur (what?)  So he makes pants?


Marquel… 26… sponsorship salesman


Tasos…30… A wedding coordinator?


Cody… 28… the limo breaks down as they arrive??? Was that even true?  Confused.  He’s a personal trainer.  He makes me nervous.


Steven… he is 30 but I think he looks 15?


Rudie… also an attorney.  I don’t trust him.


Carl… immediately I thought fire fighter from ny no?  he’s from fort Lauderdale… then why is he talkin funny?  I like his height.


Jason… 35… doctor… creepy long hair… awkward doctor jokes… stop make it stopppp.


Nick V.… he looks kind of like the attorney Rudie… I will get these guys confused.


Dylan… he was pretty nervous!!


Patrick… I didn’t think the soccer ball thing was that great… I kinda thought he was creepy?  A little maybe not.


Emil… he was TOTALLY scary… and then he tells her his name is anal with an m… omggggg.


Brett… the guy from all the promos with the lamp…


Craig… also makes me a little scared.


Ron… he seemed pretty smooth.


Bradley… an opera singer… oooo I hope he sings this season!!!  Then he knocks into something as he walks out ahhh.


Josh B… ooo he’s cute!


Nick S.… professional golfer… he might be a fun guy?


Brian… he seems shy… aww he was worried about his tie!


Andrew… he’s cute!


Mike… I don’t get the long hair look…I do like his greeting.  People call him camps?  I wonder what that’s about…


Eric… he seems very sweet!  he passed away after leaving the show and this season is dedicated to him… He seems like a really great guy.  And I do like his smile!


Josh… I feel like they are savin the good ones for last…he is gooood lookin and a baseball player whoo.

WHOA I got through them all.  25 is a lot of guys!!

She gives the first impression rose to Nick V… okay… I’m alright with that.  Was it the polka dot tie?  I am not into polka dot ties…

SOO… 6 men were sent home… Josh B., Dr. Jason, Rudie, Mike, Steven, and Emil.  Josh B was a total jerk about it.  I totally agreed with her choice for Jason… and Rudie the attorney was also a good choice I guess.   I thought Mike was maybe a mistake.. but maybe she’s not into the hair because steven had long hair also (the three long hair’d guys were out first)… then there was Anal I mean Emil.

Oh and what was with that guy coming back angry he wasn’t picked to be on the show?  I read on TMZ that was all scripted… it was just unnecessary.

Wow that took a long time to do.

Saturday Morning Fun

This morning I called my sister and at the exact moment she was calling me at 7:51 AM… we both had the same thing in mind… out to breakfast!  We had free meal coupons from a terrible experience last time we went to Friendly’s… so we went there… and we had a GREAT experience this time.  So glad we went back and it was free!  The food wasn’t amazing but the service was right on!
What’s a Saturday morning without Target???  Sure I’ll buy 3 boxes of tampons for a $5 target giftcard!  And Nicky Flash is always checkin the prices!!
A final stop at the playground just to get out that last amount of energy to ensure a good afternoon nap!!

Surbhi Dewan Independent Documentary Filmmaker


Surbhi Dewan is a good friend to my sister AND an extraordinary independent documentary filmmaker.  She’s currently working on a new feature length documentary project called ‘Partition Stories’. This film is about personal narratives from the Partition of India (1947). It is a collaboration between Surbhi Dewan and Mara Ahmed, a Pakistani-American filmmaker.

They are now in the post-production stage and have launched a crowd funding campaign to raise money for the completion of the film.

Happy Mother’s DAY!

Happy Mother’s day!!
My son wakes up with the best hair I swear.
My sister made us a beautiful breakfast!!
I am a HUGE fan of the show The Chew on ABC.  Back in March 2012 Clinton Kelly shared one of his go to group breakfast recipes, Clinton Kelly’s Bacon Egg & Cheese Biscuit Casserole.  My sister made this Mother’s day brunch LAST YEAR and I suggested that she made this again, and SHE DID!  They turned out terrific… I think this time was her best!
Raspberry mimosas!!!  They were soo good!!!  Part Raspberry liqueur, orange juice, champagne, and some raspberries in flutes…  loved this!
Beekman Boys CardaMOM Cake.  SOO good.  My mom is a huge Beekman Boys fan!  She gave my sister their cookbook… and she made their cardaMOM cake (ha get it).  Here is the recipe.
