Thursday Thoughts



Summer is here!  And I love that it’s still light out until 9 PM.


I watched the big brother premiere last night… live (2 hours that could have been compressed to 1 with fast forwarding)…. my favorite is Sam (the girl welder I love her voice).  Spoiler, she ends the first episode as a robot.  Yes, big brother is cornier than ever and does not disappoint in that aspect.  My predictions on the final 4, Sam, Winston, Angela, Scottie (maybe Faysal or Kaitlyn will make if far).  Let’s see how wrong I am!


Thursday Thoughts


Guess who’s back back again… the blog is back… tell a friend…

Welllll hellooooo there.  Did I surprise you!  How’s your Thursday going?  It’s been a MINUTE!  I know you missed this… all those devoted readers (my sister, TMD… occasionally my cousin… and I don’t really know who else).

SO here are some long over due Thursday THOUGHTS:


I just finished season 5 of Orange is the New Black on Netflix.  Which ironically came out June barely over a year ago (June 9th 2017)… this works out great for me because Season 6 comes out in July.  Anyone who watches this series and wants to discuss it with me def can… just message me.  IDK if I want to give any spoilers out on here as of right now.


The latest ending of the season black ish got me so emotional!  Dre and Bow omg… I was really scared they were over with… and that would have taken the show in a dark direction and I was not happy about it!


I was LOVING the 8 episodes that aired of Roseanne.  I mean really looking forward to the next season and more to come.  My favorite characters were obviously the OG.  Very sad news it was canceled because of Roseanne.  Waiting to see what will happen next…


Are you playing HQ trivia?  It’s an app trivia game and I highly recommend it.


Luann De Lesseps mug shot is everythingggggg.


This sandwich I ate 2 weeks ago… also is everythinggggggg (literally because the bread was called everything).


This Lagom book… loves it.


My boys and me on my birthday ❤  Seriouslyyy though.  I love them so MUCH!


AHH I am obsessed with them.


I can’t stop following this like 25 day (and going) relationship between Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande (who I followed BOTH of them before they got together).  ENGAGEDDDD!?  Ohhh this is Instagram story goldddd.


And I’ll leave you with this cute picture of my youngest baby I will call VB on here.

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


I was scared to even google that image to put on here because I DO NOT want to see / read any spoilers.  I watched episode 1 last night.  So ZIP IT!  Until I’m done, and then I’ll want to talk about it a lot.


So today I am enjoying a Dunkin Donuts smoothie… and I had them mix the strawberry banana and tropical mango together…  a long time ago when I used to work at Burger King (ugghhh embarazada) they had frozen coke and frozen cherry… and sometimes, I would suggest to a customer that they could MIX the two and it would be like cherry coke… and I swear it blew some people’s minds


I have been sick for like 15 days now… I can NOT believe what I can still blow out of my nose… when will my face stop making this disgusting green mucus snot.  I am on day 6 on antibiotics.


This is an older picture but I still love it… NF doesn’t start his next session of swimming until next week… I hope he doesn’t forget everything he’s learned so far, it feels like he’s had a lot of weeks off.


I was so excited for ABC’s line up last night… The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family!!!  I just can’t even take that Beverly Goldberg I LOVE HER!

I dvr’d American Crime… the cast is pretty good so my expectations are a little high…

Today is Thursday and I am linking up with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for some Thursday Thoughts…

jeremy survivor


I did not realize the survivor finale was last night… I was not prepared to stay up until 11 PM!  I was very pleased with who won, though I would have also been happy with Kelley Wentworth – Jeremy deserved it.  I am a little sad this season is over.



I made these motivational quote things to put on Instagram from some of the quotes I am loving from Oprah’s book, What I know for Sure.

I am loving this show and I am sad there is probably only one more final episode!


I am totally loving this I can do it chart!  NF thinks it’s great!!  And is so excited to get stars!



Thursday Thoughts


Today’s Thursday and here are my Thursday Thoughts (Linking up with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom)

ummm NF decided that he needs to wear Mr.Potato head’s glasses to see… it’s pretty ridiculous.


He went to the dentist and had no cavities but was lectured about sucking his thumb… but I think it made no impact.


I am 30 weeks pregnant today!


My sister made a home made ginger bread cake for my dad’s 60th birthday and it was very very good.


I can’t believe Teresa Giudice is about to get out of prison!


Kourtney’s website is now up… and as promised she put her avocado pudding recipe on there… but you have to pay for the app to get it…. hasn’t someone reposted it yet?  Is it everything in that picture?  It’s not even soy or almond milk…. I actually have all of that at home right now (except just regular sugar).


I am still cheering for Kieth on Survivor…


And I am LOVING the holiday baking show on ABC… but WHYYYYYYY is it on at 10 PM eastern time two weeks in a row… idk about you but I don’t want to stay up until 11!

umm that’s all my thoughts I’d like to share for now…!

Today’s Thursday and here are my Thursday thoughts…


I can’t even… he’s the best.  And that football ice cream birthday cake so good!


It still feels like there are 100 people in Cambodia playing survivor.  It seemed like every few minutes someone was giving the finger.  We have Kimmi, Wentworth, Joe, Wiglesworth, Keith, Ciera, Tasha, Savage, Spencer, Jeremy, Stephen, and Abi.  And I LOVEEEEE a #blindside!!  And I love when someone whips out a hidden immunity idol and shocks everyone.  Very good tribal council.


There was also a new modern family on last night… ughh I needed it.  It did not disappoint me either.  It had Cam and Gloria together, which is the best.  And it had just enough Dylan, but I can always have more!  (I am concerned we won’t see Dylan again for a while since they broke up this episode).  I did not care for Alex’s story line which is typical… and Luke’s wasn’t much either.


And I saved The Middle on my DVR… I hope it’s a good one.


Did I just freak you out???  I am probably half done with my Christmas shopping, I think?  I wonder if I will do some black Friday / cyber Monday shopping?


The tie dyed shirt I made at my sister’s bachelorette party came out pretty good!  A men’s medium v neck would normally fit me great for a night shirt… but being pregnant… it’s actually sort of tight.


I did a count down to how many more days until I’ll likely be in labor… we’re under 100 days left.


Does anyone else think that Tamar should have just quit before Alexa was eliminated?

I am having my sister’s wedding flowers pressed and framed by someone local… I am hoping it turns out amazing!  Here is her website.

I love a #blindside on survivor…. now, I totally think Kimmi threw Monica straight under the bus, and was it really about depleting the ocean of clams or keeping the girls number up?  The real “snake in the grass” might just be Kimmi.  OR they got rid of a potential flip flopper early… was Monica less trustworthy than Wigglesworth?  UHHH debatable.  I think it usually takes about 5 episodes for me to get into a season of survivor… I might just be there finally.


I am trying to stay positive in my life!!


Look forward to hanging this on my wall!

AHHHHHHHHH it’s a boy!!!!!!!!  I am going to be a mom of 2 boys.  This announcement photo was the very first of like 30 I took… isn’t that how it always goes?


The weather has been fantastic… and we’ve been able to hang outside / garage / back porch a lot which is amazing!  Nothing like watching football in the garage while getting some work done.


Syracuse football is 3-0 first time since 1991 (yes I just double checked that)… we play LSU this weekend… and uhhh we’re not expecting any miracles.


NF’s been to 2 swim classes so far and is the weakest of the 5 kids in the “non swimmer beginner” class ages 3-4 (the pikes)…. but he’s the most entertaining!  He was doing a little awkward boy dance and one of the instructors I think asked him if he had to go to the bathroom and he said about 6 times loudly “I just peed” … making everyone think that he just peed… like right there… but really, he had just gone before class.  He also tries to convince the other kids to just go play some soccer (and ditch this swim stuff).  I am so excited to see him improve each week, it’s the best!!  (and I am secretly glad I started him at age 3-4 instead of earlier when the parent has to get in the water too).


I’ve been going to gentle yoga 2-3x a week and it’s been great during my pregnancy…. I am still going to spin and boot camp also… but I’m able to do less and less in those classes… I am afraid of the day when spin is out and where I am mostly watching boot camp and not participating.


What is the bizarre news story about Kim Zolciak having a stroke after dwts monday but is now 100%…. I’ve been voting for her like crazy (mostly because I think she needs the votes).


speaking of Kims…. Look at these ankles… not looking forward to that.


Survivor 2nd chance premiered last night… and I watched… duh.


And right after the premiere of survivor… the big brother finale aired…. I stayed up until 11 PM to watch Steve win…… yup… that was like 100 hours of my life this summer…..


My sister’s bridal shower is this weekend and I ordered a tiramisu sheet cake from a local Italian bakery (where she is getting her wedding cake) and I am beyond excited to eat it.


Thursday Thoughts


Today’s Thursday and here are my Thursday Thoughts…









SOOO NF had a great weekend…. and the came down with croup and an ear infection.  Similar thing happened last 4th of July.  We’ve been working on recovering all week.
