Thursday Thoughts

~This is totally random, but do your dogs “talk” in their sleep? Every once in a while, the boys (usually Buddy) growls and does this little soft barks while he’s sleeping. It cracks me up every time. I know exactly what he’s dreaming of (chasing birds) and hopefully he catches one in his dreams because it’s never happening in real life. Those birds are always one step ahead of Buddy!

~Stella & Dot is having a 24-hour flash sale on all charms!! You can pick any charms (birthstone, initial, zodiac sign) you want, add a symbol (heart, cross, mom, paw, etc.) and pick a chain and you’ll get 20% off your entire selection! It’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift, either for your mom or for you! I am even going to order one. And if you aren’t sure what to get, check out the inspiration gallery for some ideas. No code is necessary, but make sure you order by midnight!

~I was hoping to get a lot of boxes this week and that is exactly what I have gotten! You know what reviews I have done, but I still need to do Hungry Globetrotter, Little Passports, Blush Box (it’s possible you may not want to click that if you are at work) and Gourmet Spotting!! PLUS, I am expecting the Tyler Florence Fancy Box (use code 20OFF14 to save $20 on a Fancy Box), Goodies Co., Bespoke Post and Julibox (the mixers) today!  And maybe a GLOSSYBOX today or tomorrow?  Ohhh, and I am also expecting Hello Fresh!  I also gotta tell you that my SIL won an iPad from fabfitfun!!!  She got a super icky box (you can check it out here) and instead of offering her a free summer box like they did for everyone else, they said they’d send her a gift.  And yesterday an iPad Mini showed up at her house!  So awesome!!!

~It sounds like a lot of you are down for a fitbit challenge, so I am going to work on setting one up this weekend!  This is going to be SO fun!

~As part of B’s 30 races in his 30th year, he’s running a half marathon this weekend.  I think I am more excited about it than he is.  I told L we were going to go watch him run and he was so excited as well!  I have to be certain to get there in time so we can see him finish.  My motto (for B) is “the faster you run, the faster you’re done”.  On the other hand, my motto for me is “run.  walk. drink water.  think about how this sucks.  run.  walk.  drink water.  think about how much this sucks”.

~I never made it to Nordstrom yesterday, but it’s happening today.  It was raining / snowing yesterday and WB and I didn’t feel like it while L was at school.  In fact, we barely made it to the grocery store. The carts were soaking wet and I didn’t have my cart cover, so I CARRIED him instead of putting him in a wet cart.  Dude, I don’t want to sit in a wet cart so I am sure he doesn’t either.  Although little, he gets quite heavy after a while!  Basically after that trip we decided it was just time to head home!

~So last night I open the bathroom door to find this little person (aka L) quietly standing there, in the dark, just waiting for me.  Considering that I thought he was in BED, I was NOT expecting him to be there and almost had a heart attack.  Of course he thought it was hysterical and proceeded to tell me he was in need of a snack while my heart was still beating a thousand miles a minute!  It wasn’t as bad as the time he surprised me in his batman costume, but still very creepy!  Kids!!!

Allright, now it’s your turn to share your thoughts!  Link-up so we can all read what’s on your mind today!

    I got that same icky box from FabFitFun. Did she just write a complaint to them? Maybe I need to do that, too!

  2. Danielle

    Haha! My Shorkie-Tzu makes the most unusual noises while she’s sleeping sometimes. I’s so funny, I figure she’s just dreaming!
    Can’t go wrong with a free iPad. I love mine, but I’d really love a Mini that I could take on the go.

    I love to watch my dogs when they do that. They’re so cute. One of my dogs that has recently gone blind still does it, which makes me wonder if he can still see while he’s dreaming.

    I have hinted about Stella and Dot to my husband for Mother’s Day and have even e-mailed him a link to your shop. We’ll see what happens. He hardly ever buys what I ask for and instead likes to surprise me. Normally with kitchen stuff. Yeah…

  5. lol, I remember the post you made after L surprised you in his batman costume, I still crack up to this day remembering that, because the image I play in my head makes it that much more funny!

    I’m getting rather frustrated with goodies… they said my box was supposed to ship on Monday and its still processing… I’m giving them one more month and then I’m out! I’m also expecting two birchbox home boxes and a bumper and crib from Target… I’m getting nervous that the crib still hasn’t shipped and I’m less than two weeks out from leaving for Florida… Come quickly crib!

    Mr. Moo talks in his sleep all the time, he even runs too, its rather humorous… well kind of, not when he’s laying in bed with you and kicks you with his legs, that part isn’t so funny!

    I’m jealous your sister got an ipad mini from fabfitfun but after that pitiful box they gave her its very well just deserved!

    Yay for a half marathon this weekend, that is my goal. 🙂

    Ahh! L would have totally scared me if he was just standing in the dark. Haha.

    Love your running motto! Mine would be I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die.

    L was just standing in the dark bathroom? Totally waiting to scare you! What a little scamp! *L*

    My dog, Lucy, also talks in her sleep. Sometimes I think it’s cute and other times it wakes me up and freaks me out!

    I am SO JEALOUS that you SIL got an ipad mini. I got that same horrible box and, although I am promised my next box for free, I would have rather had an ipad mini! I just don’t have that kind of luck.

    ?run. walk. drink water. think about how this sucks. run. walk. drink water. think about how much this sucks?. < – That would totally be my motto too! lol. Also loove that L is creepy like that.

    Oh my gosh, my kids do that to me, too! One time E ran from his room down the hallway to our living room at a sprint pace IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. Nope, we don’t sleep walk here, we sleep sprint!
    I am loving the Stella & Dot charms! Amethyst is my birthstone and that one is gorgeous! I have had quite the shopping problem lately, so I may just cave by the end of the day 🙂

    I am super excited to see your April GLOSSYBOX!!! I have been debating on getting this to send to my mom and watch her and my little sister fight over the items. My little sister is 12 and would love almost all of the stuff that I have seen so far come in this box! They dont have any coupon codes do they?
    Also, I got picked for the girls night in Cravebox! Did you get in? Im excited for it!!!

    My cat totally growls in her sleep (probably dreaming of chasing down birds) and twitches too. Kind of hilarious. That girl’s got an active imagination!
