~I watched an episode of “Amish Mafia” last night and I gotta know, this that show real? Does anyone watch? It just all seemed so ODD. Not because everyone was Amish and not because there was a Mafia, it was just more the way the show up set up. It’s possible that it is just because it was like a recap kind of show on the first season, but it was just strange. I also caught up on some Sister Wives episodes for the first time in ages and I cannot believe they are just not finally getting into these houses. My goodness. I feel like we have been talking about these houses forever.
~So I mentioned yesterday that I was planning to send another bag in to thredUP, except this time with woman’s clothes. Well Kira commented and let me know about a site called “twice” which accepts higher end brands (BCBG, Banana Republic, J.Crew, etc.) of women’s clothing. So I think I may give them a go this time around. They promise you get paid within 1-2 weeks from sending in your bag and if you don’t like your offer, you can request that the entire bag be shipped back to you for a $5 fee. I’ll report back for sure!

~I set up the ROASM Book Club / Book Swap Group on Facebook earlier in the week, so if you haven’t joined yet, please do! People are adding books they are interested in swapping and books they just want to find a good home for. I have added some of mine and still need to add more. Operation clean out my house is under way!
~I don’t mention them often, but I do still get monthly (well every 6 weeks or do) deliveries from The Honest Company and Dollar Shave Club. There are probably some other boxes I get monthly that don’t review either. No real reason I don’t review them other than how often do you need to hear how much I like laundry pods, dishwasher pods and cheap razors? But curiosity got the best of me when I was putting my Essentials bundle together and I ordered a Diapers bundle. I need diapers now that my stockpile is gone, but $80/month seems like SO much for diapers and wipes. I’m going to track and see how long it takes us to use up what they send because it seems like all that might last WB more than a month.
~L had his 5 year well visit this week (yeah I’m a little behind) and I couldn’t help but laugh when the doctor asked him if he could dress himself. Umm, lady I didn’t pick out that all striped outfit for him that’s for sure. I did make him wear a hoodie on over it though (what, it was cold out) and he gave me a dirty look while putting it on and accused me of wanting to “cover up the stripes”.
