Sunday Sentiments

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.


As usual, I am stealing Jen’s Sunday Sentiments button and idea and making it mine tonight. I’ve “known” Jen for umm, 10 years (and yet we’ve never met), and she knows I do it, so it’s not exactly stealing. But then again, it’s not a link up either ;).

~This weekend? WILD! B found out at the last minute that he had his first National Guard weekend so he’s been out of town these past few days playing army in the woods and eating MRE’s and shooting guns and all that fun stuff. The little boys (and my mom) and I went to Trunk or Treating at L’s school Friday night and then went up-north. I told L we were going and he was so looking forward to it, so we made a quick trip up there. And OMG he had a great time. He has a fort up there and spent hours fixing it and playing and getting filthy. WB could probably take it or leave it, but I think he had a fairly good time and did amazing in the car. It was just the furries and him and I driving home last night (L went with my parents) and I was quite pleased he handled the drive so well ;).

~Ohh, and we went to a Halloween “thing” while up there and L had a great time showing me everything they have there.  This little resort up-north puts on quite a show and it’s all donations only.  Pretty cool.

~Ugh. So the boys have their fall (winter) pictures tomorrow and I am pretty much dreading it.  I *think* I know what they are wearing, but I’m not totally sure.  I don’t know if I want them in navy and grey and jeans or both in navy sweaters (not matching, just the same color) and jeans.  Thoughts?  I do need to run out tomorrow and find some photo worthy shoes though.

~My Erin Condren Life Planner and Address Book arrived yesterday and I feel more organized already.  Why I need a $50 planner is beyond me, but I feel more organized already.  Now if I can just find some time between now and 1/1/14 (when my planner starts) to get everything ALL entered in it, I will be all set!  Oh, and I’m going to post a more details review of it soon – hopefully tomorrow.

~Don’t forget that the PopSugar Special Edition Holiday Box goes on sale on 10.30.13.  I’ll post on Facebook (and here) when it goes on sale on the 30th and will of course update with spoilers if (when) we hear something.  I am SO hoping it’s $100 (I mean I want it to be less but I highly doubt that), but they have not announced a price yet.  I did skip a few Fancy Boxes for next month, so I’m in.  Also, don’t forget that PopSugar’s prices are going up on 11/4.  So if you want to lock-in the current $35/month price by buying a 3-6-or 12-month subscription, do it quickly.

~I said I was sending out a newsletter tonight and it’s coming!  Make sure to open it because there will be a newsletter exclusive contest in there!  Oh, and one more thing.  If you “subscribe” to my blog you know you get a daily e-mail which includes all my blog posts from the past 24 hours.  I believe it goes out daily at about 2-3pm.  Does this time work or would you rather I changed it to something later in the day?  Like 7 or 8pm?  Let me know!

How is your weekend going?  Any Sunday night plans?

    Hmm take both and change sweaters there 😉 I so need to get the boys some real photos taken and not just the ones I snap outside. While mine are cute we need to head to a studio sometime.

    1. Jennifer

      These are outside. At the apple orchard. I hope it doesn’t rain. I haven’t even looked…

  2. Jen

    What a fun weekend! 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      It was nice!

  3. Tabitha

    I like the grey and blue sweater combo for a little contrast in the pics. Either way I’m sure they will turn out great.
    I like the time the current email update goes out. I’ve usually already checked your blog by then so no biggie. I do get late evening updates from some other blogs and I feel like I have missed something, not sure what, by that point.

    1. Jennifer

      LOL. I sometimes think that too. But I know I haven’t really *missed* anything. Maybe I will just try and do my coupon / deal posts earlier in the day so that they are included in that day’s e-mail??

  4. Melissa Bean

    Definitely option #1! The navy would bug me if it didn’t match exactly. I’m crazy like that 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      They do actually though (in real life). Does that change anything?

      1. Melissa Bean

        That does 🙂 …Only if they won’t be right next to each other…If they are sitting next to each other, it may look like one navy blob with two heads 🙂

        1. Jennifer

          LOL!!! If I could get them to sit next to each other, I’d be pleased even with that!

  5. Denise @ What the Schneck

    I like Option 1 for the boys outfits!

    1. Jennifer

      I think that’s my plan too!

    I just bought a planner too. If you sign using someone’s link you can get a $10 off sent to you. I used that to buy the her pens and paid the $7.95 shipping. (They don’t discount shipping and have other items for less than $10) If you make that purchase you can then turn around and use the GIFT20 and get $20 off. You have to make that first purchase to be able to get the $20 off. So you get the planner for $37.95. Less than $44 total for both between the two transactions. This will work until 12/31 Just thought you might want to pass that along!

    1. Jennifer

      I had heard that’s what people were doing and it’s awesome! I used GIFT20 on mine, but I was a returning customer. I think I got a discount when I ordered a few years ago too?

      I hope EC is on another daily deal site soon so I can grab a tray!

    I love the time I receive your daily email! It’s nap time and it’s the only time I have to do some fun thinks, like reading your blog, until after bedtime! Don’t change 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      I only use nap time of fun things too. Never cleaning or anything like that!!

  8. lisa D

    Option 1

    1. Jennifer

      I think that’s what I am leaning towards, but it could all change when I wake up!

  9. Diana Garza

    I like option #2 – so cute! But, of course your boys would look adorable either way!

    1. Jennifer

      It’s a hard decision! I should try the clothes on the boys!

  10. Elizabeth

    I haven’t been receiving any newsletters 🙁 I’ve signed up numerous times and I even check my spam, nothing. Help?

    1. Jennifer

      Are you subscribed with this e-mail? I don’t see you on there?

      1. Elizabeth

        I should be, this is my primary. I’ll try it again and hopefully it works!

        1. Jennifer

          I still don’t see it?

        2. Elizabeth

          Still nothing? It took me to the cache and everything. I verified my email through a link. 🙁

      2. Elizabeth

        I think it worked now! Thank you! Feel free to delete this comment, I feel bad for spamming your comment section.

        1. Jennifer

          No worries at all!!! Someone else might have this issue too!

  11. Leanne

    I think u should go with the blues bc of the adorable elbow patches and bc it seems your kids love to match, but bring the white sweater to throw on in a few photos for choices 🙂

    I also love your planner and have been considering getting one, you post a review of her planners 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      I have one coming up this afternoon!!

      1. Leanne

        yay! I meant to say “you should* post a review”.. now it sounds like i was being all kinda bossy. haha – oops!

        1. Jennifer

          No, I knew that you meant!! Sometimes you want to see a real persons actual

    1. Jennifer

      I think that’s what I’m going with!

  12. Elizabeth

    What pens are you using for your planner? I really want to order one but I don’t want to buy pens that will bleed through.

    1. Jennifer

      I bought some pens that Erin Condren sells and I also have some Uni-Ball ones that work!

  13. Elle

    Yes, that time works perfectly! That would be right around now when I get out of classes and am just bumming around my room on Youtube and stuff! I need to go sign up now, I love your blog! to bits and pieces!

    1. Jennifer

      Okay I’m keeping it like it is! No one said it wasn’t a good time so we’ll stick with this!

  14. Emi

    I like the white and blue sweater option for the boys. 🙂
    and ugh so many boxes are going on sale. I opted out of the Neiman Marcus because it was too rich for my blood and I just got my Haute look bag and totally forgot I needed to save for this holiday box…Ughhh decisionssss

  15. Emi

    Also this might be a dumb question but why are those planners so expensive? They’re cute but jeeeeez.

    1. Jennifer

      Not a dumb question! I have no idea! They really are sturdy though.

    1. Jennifer

      So cute right???

    1. Jennifer

      That’s what I went with!

  16. Amanda

    Hey girl! Any idea about the PopSugar Must Have Holiday edition? I’ve never been lucky enough to score any special edition boxes before sold out. I’m pretty new to the subscription box craze!

    1. Jennifer

      I know nothing. I am kind of guessing around noon / 1pm though because that’s when the Neiman Marcus one went on sale.
