Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m smiling because:

~I had a fun night with my boys last night! We randomly decided to go run a few errands which included getting a new fish for L and stopped at a Coney on the way home for dinner. Nothing fancy, but the kids were being so funny and we just laughed and laughed!

So funny
So funny

~Teen Mom 2 is going to be back on my MTV in just a few short weeks! Ahhh, I couldn’t be more excited about this. Come on January 21st!

~I have, for the most part, resisted Target’s 50% Christmas Clearance. However, my stores are stocked with goodies and I am counting down the days until it’s 70% off!

~I was able to score both the Expresso Refill and the Coffee Refill Tumblers yesterday at the Starbucks inside Target for 50% off (they were $37.50 and $15 respectively)! Ahhh, free (at least for January anyway) coffee here we come! If you can find these and still need a gift for someone who loves coffee, GET THEM!


~I also scored the Alice + Olivia Starbucks mug for 50% off as well! I held off on buying it when it was $20, but for $10? I can’t resist that for all this cuteness! The girls at the Target Starbucks were cracking up at how excited I was!

~L is headed up-north today for a few days and OMG he is so excited! The fact that they have so much snow up there might have something to do with it ;).

~I am still smiling about Christmas morning. The boys (well L) were so surprised and excited that Santa came. It’s all just so magical and fun! And I am still giggling that once L realized that he got the first two things of the three things (which were a bunk bed, a megazord that shoots bullets and the RV) he asked Santa for, he stopped opening presents and said “I think I should go look in the garage”. Ha! There is no RV in there L!!!!

~B and I watched Runner, Runner last night and while it wasn’t my favorite movie ever, I am smiling that he picked a movie with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck ;).

~I have the “Subscription Box Reviews” tab all up to date with the latest December reviews! The Monthly Subscription Box List will be updated this weekend!

~My Zara scarf from Stacey over at Five Minute Style arrived yesterday and it’s even more gorgeous in person. This is something I didn’t even know I wanted until it was long sold out here in the States. Thanks to Stacy, lots of us girls here got our hands on this beauty!!


That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?  Any big plans for the weekend?

      It’s so much bigger than I thought!

    I love that he stopped during presents and asked if he should check the garage!! And I love the video of him walking into his new room…..too cute!!! I’m so jealous you scored the Alice + Olivia Starbucks mug…..the closest Starbucks to me is an hour away and I see it’s already sold out online 🙁
    Have a Happy & Healthy New Year!! I look forward to reading your blog in 2014!!

    1. Jennifer

      Happy New Year to you as well!! If I find an extra mug I will let you know. I will be at many Target’s in the coming days 😉

    Love the video of L discovering his bunk beds. Too cute!

    I am sooooo excited for Teen Mom 2.

    I don’t know how you have been resisting the 50% off at Target. I’ve been to 2 Targets, which are still pretty well stocked but I was just so afraid that when the percentage gets any lower, I’ll miss everything. Also, you should check out Kroger’s seasonal aisle. We have Baker’s here (affiliate of Kroger, they sell Kroger products) and they have awesome toys 50% off. I’ve been to 2 of those stores too but made a mental note of toys I wanna grab when they mark everything down to 75% off.

      I think it’s just that I don’t really NEED anything! And my stores seriously had SO much that I feel like I’ll be able to find most of what I want at 70% off!

    Oh, how cute is that video! Love it, and absolutely love those bunkbeds! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      Thank you! I hope you did as well!!!!!!

    I am envious — nay jealous!! You are able to find all of the coveted items at your local Target/Starbucks. I don’t know where you live, but you are super lucky! First, the Advent Calendar and now the Alice + Olivia tumbler. I love it! Once again, they have been sold out in South Florida for weeks. Enjoy!

    1. Jennifer

      I’m in Michigan! My Starbucks don’t seem to have that stuff still, but the Target ones and the Kroger ones seem to come through for me!!!! If I can find another tumbler, do you want one?

  5. Janaya

    ahhh! I’m super excited for Teen Moms! That completely made my day. I never really got into the other season 16 and pregnant/teen moms but I’ve always loved watching these girls! Can’t wait!

    1. Jennifer

      Totally the same! I don’t think anyone will match up to the Season 1 / 2 Teen Moms!

    What day do you think Target will bump to 70% off?

    1. Jennifer

      Tomorrow (Sunday)!!

  7. Tiffany G

    Dang it! Only the dollar spot was70% stopped on my way home from work… Maybe tomorrow?

    1. Jennifer

      Boo! A few of my local ones are 70% today!

  8. Bethany

    I want that A+O Starbucks mug sooo badly!!! If you see another one I would pay you to send it to me!

    1. Jennifer

      They are getting hard to find! If I can find more, I will grab them. I think I am looking for like 5 people now? LOL!

  9. Lorns

    I love that L. thought he should look in the garage for a RV!

    1. Jennifer

      He’s so funny!!!

    For some reason, I couldn’t reply to my/your earlier comment but it would be awesome if you found the A+O. I just can’t seem to find it in South Florida. Seriously, so kind of you to look for me. I’m willing to pay (obviously!!). Much appreciated.

    1. Jennifer

      No luck so far!
