~B and I are still doing well on the Challenge. No cheating has gone down and while I wouldn’t say we LOVE eating clean (yet), we are adjusting. I’m not going to lie and tell you I don’t want a frappe, because I do. But I can see the scale moving (B and I are both down 5lbs so far), so that makes me not have one. If you are still considering doing a Challenge, but don’t want to do it alone, there are a few people in the Advo FB group starting after the 4th!
~OMG, last night I decided I’d take some time and update the box list. It took way longer than expected because there are tons of new boxes! Here’s what I added yesterday: A Kitchen Box (cooks/food lovers), Bounty New York (items from local farms and artisians), Escape Monthly (vacation in a box), Hello Makana (Hawai’i products), Love, Play, Nurture (Kids with autism/special needs), My Bella Box (Girls), Rad and Hungry (office products), SecretSexBox (adult), ShaveMOB (razors), Supplet (mom’s to be), Taste Trunk (food), Vegan Cuts Beauty (animal friendly beauty products), Your Bijoux Box (jewelry). Phew. Did I miss any recent new ones??
~Did you all watch Big Brother last night? I am so excited to see what happens! So far I like Aaryn. No real reason other than that I thought she had a cute outfit on. And L is routing for Spencer because he’s a train conductor (he watched the intros with me while he had a popsicle). There aren’t many times I wish I had DVR, but this is totally one. I know I will end up missing shows so I am hoping I can find a place to watch them somewhere. I haven’t looked, but I’m guessing it’s out there!
~I have not decorated my house for the 4th of July yet and I feel so ashamed! I actually don’t even know if I am going to bother at this point. At least I don’t still have my Easter stuff up right?
~OMG, I caught up on The Real World – Portland last night and Nia is all kinds of crazy. I haven’t seen the finale or the reunion yet, but I will be stalking Hulu until they appear. Does anyone else watch this?? Please tell me I am not the only one.
~I am totally loving all of your Summer Bucket List items and you all have inspired me to make a formal list. I doubt we’ll complete them all, but it will be fun to sit down with L and see what he wants to do this summer. Lately we’ve been doing a lot of bike riding and puddle splashing. Today we are going to the mall and I swear, I am packing him a bathing suit so he can play in the fountains.
~I stated back on C25K on Sunday (?) and it’s going okay. It had been so long that I didn’t even know where I left off (and the fact that I opened up the C25K app instead of the Ease into 5K one that I had been using didn’t help). I randomly decided I was at Week 4 and the running stretches are now up to 5 minutes at a time. I know that doesn’t seem like a long time, but it’s long time if you don’t run ever!
~So I ordered some straw cups from SkipHop last weekend when they had a 20% off coupon code. I looked EVERYWHERE here for the cups and yeah, I don’t believe we have them. So I paid with paypal and that was that. And then I get an e-mail on Monday saying that my paypal funds had been refunded because SkipHop couldn’t accept the funds? Something like that. I instagrammed them and they said that they were having issues of some sort and all was fixed. I was like well, okay, I’ll just try again. Only I didn’t get around to it. Then on Tuesday I got a shipping notification from them. You’d think since they wouldn’t take my money they wouldn’t give me any cups, but you’d be wrong. I need to call them and get it sorted out, but I am so excited to get these cups today!
~I mentioned it on Facebook, but I got crazy on my birthday and decided to mop the kitchen floor. That happens less frequently in a year than my birthday does (B usually does it). But I think it sucks so bad to do it because our mop SUCKS. Any suggestions? Hopefully one that works very well and it sold at like Target so I can get it asap??
That’s it from here. What’s on your mind today? Don’t forget to link-up below!
