So WHAT Wednesday


Today is Wednesday an I am saying SO WHAT if…

  • I haven’t packed for Vermont yet and I can’t find my bathing suit cover up anywhere
  • C is in Arizona more than he’s in New York
  • There was a woot off yesterday and now it’s still going on today…. I can’t mention what I bought on here because it will likely be Christmas gifts… but really… $84 later…
  • only when *certain* people sneeze I want to punch them…
  • I like Carole and Dorinda on Real Housewives together in London… and Sonja cracks me up
  • K Meghan King Edmonds, you can eat cheese burgers and still be skinny… got it
  • I still haven’t seen teen mom 2 season 6 episode 3 so I can’t comment on Leah’s messy car yet
  • who knew a lion would be out walking around Milwaukee?  I need updates on this asap
  • I mowed 80% of my lawn before realizing how to make it self propel
  • I can’t stop thinking about pf changs lettuce wraps
  • I love when things don’t go as planned on Big Brother
  • I am terrified to hit a deer when I’m driving… I feel like that’s something that happens to everyone at least once so I’m due
  • I’m just like my mom, I love a good deal
  • My email is up to 166 unread and it’s stressing me out, didn’t I just clear it?!
  • my neighbors got a pool
  • I feel like I graduated from college 100 years ago, and high school 200 years ago
  • I have like 2 college friends I talk to on about a bi weekly basis and that’s it… with fb these days I don’t need to actually contact anyone to be updated on their life
  • As a maid of honor I need to get on some stuff… maybe starting next week.. sorry smellen
  • I gots me some baby fever
  • I’m afraid of contracting a rare odd bacterial infection by swimming in a lake that kills me and or makes me lose my skin and limbs…. WHAT how can you not think about that after hearing Amy Purdy’s story on Dancing with the Stars or what if a leech goes up my nose and into my brain like on Grey’s Anatomy… ughhhh it’s just not worth it is it???
  • who is going to be on the next season of DWTS anyway?


Friday Letters

Friday letters

Dear NF, You make me smile the BIGGEST smile every day since you were born.  I love you so so much!  You’re pretty dramatic lately and I guess this is the “terrible 2’s”.

Dear Smellen, I say this all the time, but I am SO glad you moved back and are a big part of mine and NF’s life.

Dear Leah and Corey on Teen Mom 2, I love that they can communicate about their daughters with their new spouses there and keep the children’s best interest in mind completely… it was beautiful to see no arguing and everyone acting like mature parents!  Ahh it made me happy to not see a mess but good communication.

Dear Chelsea Houska’s Hair, I love you!



Though it wasn’t technically a link up I am still linking up with Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom with a currently post.
Currently Burning… Bath and Body Works 3 wick candle White Barn collection Renew and Refresh.  I love this scent it’s so clean… I guess you could say it’s just like the name, renew and refresh.  I can’t find it on the bath and body works website sooo I’m worried it is discontinued?  I take forever to go through candles though so I’m not that worried.  I’ll find something else I like next.
Currently Watching… Teen Mom 2 from last Tuesday.  I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to watch this episode!
Currently on my “to do list”… Laundry is always on my to do list.  I did all of it except for my delicates and work clothes… which I hang dry.  I will have to do that and grocery shop tomorrow.  NF was not a fan of our Target trip today, I am hoping he’s not the same for our grocery shopping trip tomorrow.
Currently I’m excited about… Syracuse basketball!!  They just had another incredible win tonight!  I didn’t get to watch the 2nd half though.  It was on our regular antenna TV and C went out for the game.  I did get to see basically play by play run down on FB sooo a win is a win is a win!!  I can’t WAIT for March Maddness!!!
Currently lusting over… Olivia Pope’s work wardrobe on Scandal.  I…just…LOVE ITTTTT!!!!  Ugh so amazing.
Currently loving… My little boy!!!  I’m loving my Nicky Flash!  Most pictures I take of him look like this…
Currently anxious about… Just the normal stuff I’m always worried about.
Currently buying.. a little rug from Target that says “I’m a wee bit irish” which I can’t find a photo of for the life of me!  I’ll add it tomorrow since it’s in NF’s room and he’s sleeping now…

What I’m Loving Wednesday

what Im loving wednesday




NF: my adorable little boy.  I’m loving him always.

candy crush

Candy Crush: STILL addicted.  Still.



Juan Pablo: is he like the best bachelor they’ve ever had?  At first when they said they picked him I was surprised… I don’t know why… he’s amazing.



Teen Mom 2: the new season of Teen Mom 2.  I cry every episode I just can’t help it!  I became pregnant with my child at 24 with someone I just started dating, and I am still with him today.  If we were 16 I know it would have been 100 times harder so I just feel so much for them and the babies who are all about to be 4 years old!

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s arms: they are like not even real life.  I can’t stop staring at them.  They are just so incredibly thin.



What I’m Loving Wednesday!

My little Fam: This picture is from Nicky Flash’s (that’s what I’ve been callin him lately) 1st birthday party.  Next month he’ll be 1 1/2!  I can’t believe it!

Cheeky Monkey Tomato Garlic Dipping Oil: Holy Moley.  Cheeky Monkey Foods have a kiosk in the new part of the Syracuse Mall, Destiny USA, formally known (but still known by me) as Carousel Mall.  You can try samples there of this amazzzzing dipping oil.  I LOVE to dip bread into flavored oil… it’s like my favorite thing to do.  I still really do love Pastabilities Spicy Tomato Oil too.  This tastes different though.  Cheeky Monkey is strangely sweet and also spicy all at the same time.  Check it out here.

drunk uncle

Drunk Uncle: I am pretty positive he’s my favorite part of SNL like ever.


Dennis Rodman Fired From All-Star Celebrity Apprentice:  And why did he get fired??  Because they miss spelled Melania’s name on their ad which is the name of the product they were promoting.  Aint no body got time for spell check!!


Chelsea Houska’s Hair: I’m always lovin this girl’s hair.


Andy Dick’s Dance Monday night on DWTS: WHAT!?  Yeah.  I liked it.  And I cried.  It had to have been the song choice, Hallelujah.  That song alone can make you burst into tears.  I was weeping riiight along with Carrie Ann Inaba… but Nicholas wasn’t into it and he tried ruining the moment by playing with his toys that play long obnoxious songs.  I didn’t let that distract me though – I stayed focused and I let the tears flow.  Writing that felt ridiculous, but that’s really how it all happened.


This picture: I found this picture on Going the Distance blog.  It makes me happy.

Thursday Thoughts


Linking up with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts!!


Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza… Chris made the BEST pizza Monday night.  He always makes amazing pizzas.  I wish he made them more!  I just have to remember to buy pizza dough – and he’ll do it.


Kevin Ware’s broken leg… I watched it happen LIVE.  Duke vs. Louisville after Easter dinner – ya know just watching the game and “Oh that guy’s hurt… wait what is that white thing WTFFFF IS THAT A BONE!?? AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! OMG OMG OMG REWIND THAT AHHHHHHHHHHH NO DON’T YES REWIND IT NOOO DON’T LOOK YES YES THAT’S HIS BOOONEEE AHHHH”  That was basically my reaction.  Kevin Ware broke his leg through the skin from jumping to block a 3 point shot and then landing wrong.  He landed so so so wrong.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to you Ware!  And we’re happy to see you’re doing okay.  But I still want Syracuse to beat Louisville if we end up in the final game.


Eliminated: Kendra, Wynonna, and Omarosa…

  • Kendra on Splash… they did couple dives (is that what they called it?)  The first pair was Louie Andreson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – YES!!  This is exactly who I wanted to see dive together!!  Then everyone else dived… and then the final dive team was Kendra Wilkinson and Rory Bushfield (who is Rory Bushfield?)  I am looking at the clock and I am thinking… they still have to do the dive for your life (like lip sync for your life but different) and eliminate someone… soo Kendra and Rory go up to dive and Kendra decides she can’t do it.  The crowd claps in encouragement starting to chant her name and then Kendra is like nope not going to do it.  And she quits and the show abruptly just ends.
  • Wynonna on DWTS… how do I feel about this?  Well… I would have rather seen D.L. Hughley go and they weren’t even in the bottom 3!!  I voted for Lisa and Gleb and Kellie and Derek (I always vote for my favorite, and then who I THINK will go home, but don’t want them too).  I am sad to see Wynonna go so early.
  • Omarosa on All Star Celebrity Apprentice… FINALLY she’s gone.  I was tired watching the show revolve around her.  She’s entertaining and then she’s just ridiculous.  She didn’t stand a chance with Piers Morgan in the boardroom.  He really does NOT like her.

finding dory

Finding Nemo Sequel…  I JUST found out about this.  It comes out November 25, 2015!!  Nicholas will have just turned 4 annnnd I’m already making plans to go see this with him!!


Chelsea Houska’s Hair… I’m always just fascinated by it.

Teen Mom 2 – season 3 – episode 3

Did ANYONE see Teen Mom 2 this week?  This was ridic.  Janelle failed her drug test and now has the choice of going to jail or staying on probation.  She chooses jail so she can minimize the time she has to stop smoking.  She is offered 16 days in jail BUT – it conflicts with her Ke$ha concert date.  Janelle explains that she has all these feathers in her hair for the concert, she bought clothes for the concert, she set up hotel rooms for the concert – she just can’t make it to jail then.  Hello like doesn’t anyone totally understand?  She watches Ke$ha on the youtube like 30 times a day.

Well, Janelle gets a random drug test, fails, and goes straight to jail.  And Bahbra isn’t getting her out!  GOOD!
