~Let’s see, where to begin? Let’s start with those crazy Housewives. Gretchen singing? No. Stop it now. I am cringing just thinking about next week when she proposed to Slade. It was all very The Bachelorette like to me. And please tell me someone else laughed when Joe Gorga was explaining what the black sh*t was that everyone kept talking about after the huge fight. Hairspray to make his hair look thicker! Classic. And I love that he was all complaining about it to, even to his own wife. LOL.
~Ahh, the royal baby! I am a tad late discussing it, but whatever. I am still excited and like the name a lot! “George Alexander Louis” is a total King’s name and I think it’s a perfect fit. Will and Kate seem so normal and down to earth and I couldn’t be happier for them. And thank flippin goodness I didn’t a billion people staring at me the day after I had either of my kids. I am certain I didn’t look cute at all. Oh and is it normal to only stay in the hospital for a night in the UK after you have a baby? I only stayed a night with WB (I stayed way longer with L but that’s a whole other story), but around here it seems like two nights is more the norm. B and I figured we weren’t getting any sleep in hospital so we might as well go home and get no sleep there ;).
~This is so stupid, but I am having such a hard time finding a cute fruit bowl. We used to have one from Core Bamboo, but it’s taken a beating – I feel like maybe you aren’t supposed to put bamboo in the dishwasher and I did like a million times. I need a really big bowl that’s stylish (probably a wood or a metal) enough for the counter yet affordable. Any ideas??
~I’ve been slack on my clean eating, but plan to pick back up soon. Just as soon as I go to the grocery store to restock anyway. Dinners are easy because we got a Plated box this week, but lunches get me in trouble. I made L a muffin tin meal (which he ate at his new table in his swing set) and had some trouble finding 12 different and acceptable items for him! As for Plated, we had the tilapia fish tacos last night. OMG so good! If you haven’t entered to win my Plated giveaway yet, you’ve still got time!
~The Target Summer Clearance is coming to an end (it’s usually only 90% for a few days before they declare it “INF” in the system and may not sell it to you even if you do find it in the store) and I have loved seeing all of your hauls! I am thrilled that a lot of you who had never clearance shopped before got out there and got yourselves some deals! They mark down clearance like this for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines and Easter in addition to Summer, so we can do it all over again in a few months ;). Oh, and I got a mention for my finds on Totally Target, which I found to be totally cool!
~L and B are going fishing tonight and L is so excited. I am already scared thinking about what’s going to happen when he has to go back to school in the fall. He’s going to be crushed that his up-north fun will only be able to happen in short doses now. And WB is still crazy little WB. He’s all about the hugs these days and will happily walk up to you and hug your legs. And when he does it to L, OMG I about die. Adorable.
~And finally, I looked in my thredUP account last night and the status has changed to “processing payment” so the payout amount shouldn’t be far away now! I cannot wait. Everyone has been getting these crazy low payouts lately, so I do not have high hops for my bag at all. We’ll see!
That’s it from here. Don’t forget to link-up your Thursday Thoughts below!
