~First of all, I’m sorry for posting a million times yesterday. There was just so much going on. In case you missed a post, here they are: November Love With Food Review, So What Wednesday, November Birchbox Review, November Citrus Lane Review, What I’m Loving Wednesday and finally PopSugar announced a Must Have Luxury Edition Box FOR HIM.  Phew! What a day!  I still need to review ipsy (not my favorite so I am not in a hurry) and Goodies Co.  I love Goodies Co. but my mom hasn’t gotten hers yet and will kill me if I spoil it.  Since she babysits for free at the drop of a hat, I don’t dare cross her!  Oh and also, I don’t consider reviews of my subscription boxes to be real posts because I know not everyone cares about them, so in my head, I only posted 2x yesterday ;).

~L is was super jealous of WB’s footed pajamas, so I got him some Christmas ones (and posted a picture of the boys in their footed pjs on Instagram).  OMG, he is in love.  And I guess I can’t blame him.  He looks so snuggly and warm in them.  I almost want some.  Almost.

~I really don’t understand how Thanksgiving is next week.  It just dawned on me yesterday that it was only a week away.  WTF?  Wasn’t it just Halloween?  Can’t these holidays just slow down already?  Geez.  I guess now I know why there is Christmas stuff out everywhere and people keep talking about Black Friday.

~Speaking of Black Friday, are you going out?  I feel like now that it starts on Thanksgiving night it ruins the fun.  I mean, let’s just let everyone enjoy Thanksgiving with their family okay?  I have gotten up early a few times, but there is nothing I am really after this year.  I’ll probably go to Target sometime on Friday because I love Target.  And if I see that somewhere is giving away some amazing gift with purchase, maybe I will go there?

~I am trying to figure out the best way to do my monthly subscription box reviews without having them be SO long.  I am annoyed by it, so I am guessing other people are too.  Bear with me as I try to figure something better out, but still keep the content mostly the same.  I am thinking of going back to some sort of a collage style.  Any ideas?

~I’ve been using my JM Argan Oil for over a week now and, umm, I hate it.  It is seriously sucking the life right out of my face.  It’s making my skin so dry.  Like so dry that I am getting rough patches of skin.  I am going to give it the full month though since some people say it takes your skin awhile to adjust to a new product.

~Lately I’ve been hearing lots of people talking about the show “Parenthood” and I know nothing?  Wait, I feel like maybe I watched it when it first came on, but from the way everyone goes on and on about it, I clearly still need to be watching it.  Do you watch?  Am I missing out?  Have I been living in a cave since I don’t know about this?

~And finally, my PopSugar giveaway is ending TONIGHT.   Go enter!

    that is a total bummer about the JM oil. i actually ended up ordering the “sprout” moisturizer (the samples came in the popsugar must have) and OMG it is to die for! my skin has never been better – just in case you want to try something else out!

    Hey there! I am a Jen too (atleast to some people who somehow cant believe that there is another version of Jen that doesnt end like Jenny or Jennifer etc!)… I love your reviews of the subscription boxes. I got hooked on subscription boxes with Wittlebee which I stumbled upon. When people look up montly boxes, your blog pops up. I like the way it is organized as well. Infact I think a pic of each product is much better than the collage – it gave me an idea of the size & feel of the product. With a collage (I felt) that it all merges into a splash of color.
    Your boys are adorable… and in Xmas footies.. awww-adorable! I have two girls and am looking for similar sleepwear for them for Thanksgiving and Xmas.
    Do review your samples from Sephora (if you are up to it) – its awesome to hear what mommies think.

    I love Black Friday and I have to agree, starting the sales on thanksgiving really ruins the true holiday of Thanksgiving! I have done the Black Friday thing for years and wouldn’t miss it for the world! As for Parenthood, I LoVE it! You really do need to check it out. It only gets better the longer its on.

    Keep us/me posted about the Argon Oil. I’m totally curious about it. I know that it’s a longer post but I like your reviews that had the pictures above the blurb about the item. But that might just be me 🙂 never the less love reading your blog 🙂
