~Before we start, I thought I’d take a minute and re-explain link-ups. I know lots of you know what they are, but I have been getting e-mails from people wondering how they work, if they can join, etc. so I’ll explain!  Every Thursday I do a link-up called “Thursdays Thoughts”.  ANYONE can join.  I’d love it if you did in fact!  Here’s how you “link-up”.  First, grab my Thursday Thoughts button above.  You can make it clicky so it links back to me that way or just throw in a blurb that says “I’m linking up with Jen over at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts today” and then go on with your post.  Thursday Thoughts is a collection of various thoughts, tidbits, etc.  Basically what ever’s on your mind and what you’ve been up to would go in your post.  When you are done with your post, you’d head to this post, scroll down and add a link to your blog post in the “link-up”.  You should see a little clicky “Add Your Link” button. In the “Name” box I always do Jen @ Ramblings of a Suburban Mom instead of just Jennifer so that when people are visiting me from a link up, they know where they are headed.  So basically, you link your blog to me and then you add your Thursday Thoughts post in the link up so we can all go visit you and check it out!  That was way longer than I expected it to be, but hopefully it clears up everyone’s questions!

~L had early release yesterday so we headed out to Chuck E Cheese after school.  He’d mentioned wanting a few days ago to go so I surprised him and pretended like we were going to the mall and turned in Chuck E Cheese instead.  OMG he was so excited.  And while I am not a huge CEC fan, I was quite pleased that the place was basically empty.  EXCEPT for another little boy from L’s class!!  And then another boy who is in a different kindergarten class showed up. No one planned it, but it worked out perfect.  The boys had a great time and since it wasn’t crowded, WB was able to run around and be crazy and have fun too.  And he can even put the token in the slot so he can play a game.  BAHAHA!

Chuck E Cheese.  And yes, WB was thrilled to dance with the mouse.  L was like get real.

~Congrats to Natasha Hoover who won the Erin Condren Life Planner Giveaway! I had NO IDEA how excited you all were going to be about this one.  My goodness.  This may have been one of the most popular giveaways I’ve had.  If you didn’t win, don’t worry because I am for sure going to keep this in mind for some holiday “stuff” I am planning.  And congrats to Adrienne Austin to won the My Muse Box Giveaway!  Congrats ladies!  I have e-mailed you both!!

~I am doing my best to get subscription box reviews up and should have Loot Crate, The Bride Box, Munchit and Bunnys Furr and Feathers Funpacks up in the next day or so.   I have boxes from Bonjour Jolie and Appleseed Lane on the way, but I *think* that’s it for this week.  As if that’s not a wild week.

~Oh PopSugar, why do you do this to me?  I saw on their homepage that they are launching a Special Edition Must Have Holiday Box.  No price has been announced yet and no spoilers have been released yet, but it goes on sale on  on sale on 10/30/13.  Fingers crossed it’s $100 like the other Special Edition Boxes and not $250 like the Neiman Marcus Box!

~Umm, does Kate Middleton ever look bad?  That woman is gorgeous and is always on her game.  I wonder if she gets nervous around the Queen?  Or if she really is as excited to see her as it seems? Either way, I love me some royals.  I can’t wait for Prince Harry to get engaged / married so I can get up at 5am and watch it like I did with their wedding!

    Man, Kate Middleton even looked good leaving the hospital after having a baby. I was a mess! I don’t know how she does it. I suppose if it is your job to look nice then you have time to make sure you look nice. It is not my job to look that nice. Ha.

    Also, I might bite the bullet and order this holiday box. Or ask for it for Christmas. I have never ordered from Popsugar before, and I can never think of things that I want as gifts, so perhaps this will fit the bill 🙂

      I was too. I was like get me out of here already.

      I want to stay strong and not get the box,but we’ll see how that works.

    I love the royals and Kate also! I taped their wedding and watched it later that day. Erin made fun of me. I told him if I had been alive when Diana married into the family I would have watched it too. :o)
    That’s nice you had fun at CEC. I’m not looking forward to ever taking our kids there. 🙂

    will the popsugar box go on sale at midnight on 10/30? I am new to all this and am wondering if I will have to set an alarm

    1. Jennifer

      I don’t know. The Neiman Marcus one went on sale mid-day. You just never know!

    Also is it just me or does prince will have an ‘I’m pooping/ need to poop’ look on his face in that photo? Luckily kate looks so good I doubt anyone noticed lol
