~It’s Monday, but not a normal Monday since B and L both have off today. B’s off for President’s Day and L has the week off for Winter Break. L was supposed to go up up-north, but stayed home because of his cough and the fact that my Grandma is who lives up there is sick and my mom is busy taking care of her! But we’ll figure out some fun for him around here this week and he’s already planning on a trip up there before all the snow melts ;).

~Our weekend was good and included lots of sleeping in (for me anyway) and just hanging out the four of us. B’s been gone a bunch lately so it was good to be able to hang out as a family and just play legos and watch the Games and roam around the mall.

~I have a ton of box reviews coming up this week including iHeartMD, Memebox, Adventure Trunk, Carefree Crafts, Brew Pony, PetBox and Artistry Gift Wrap. I am expecting lots of boxes this week too including The Bride Box, Citrus Lane, Kiwi Crate, Dottiebox, BikeLoot and Lip Factory.  Those are the ones I know about for sure anyway! I love weeks like this!  Are you expecting any subscription boxes?  What are you waiting on??

~Okay, so did anyone see the Games last night with the Bode Miller interview after his race?  Nice making him cry lady.  That wasn’t very nice!  I felt bad for the dude.  Give him his space you know?  Oh, and also Bob Costas is going to be back on tonight.  I am totally looking forward to checking out his eyes !

~Well what do you know, it’s suppose to snow here today.  4-7 inches is predicted.  Who really knows what we’ll get.  Maybe 2 inches, maybe 10 includes.  We’ll find out when it gets here.  This winter has just been insanity!  It never stops/

I live in that dark blue.

~Now that my Starbucks free drinks are gone (and the fact that I am almost out of gift cards), I need some Vue cup recommendations.  B usually grinds his own beans and uses it the my Vue cup thing, but I like my coffee, umm, a little less coffee like.  I like the Vanilla Latte ones, but is there something else I am missing out on?

~What’s on your To Do List this week?  I NEED to get my Disney reservations finalized, get some more stuff on eBay / Craigslist (if I could have a garage sale in February I would) and finally get the boys old clothes under control.  I think most of this should be doable,, but you just never know. What’s on your To Do List this week??

That’s it for now, but what’s up for your Monday?  Is it a holiday for you as well?

    I have no idea when any boxes are coming I had other non-box related packages that I thought should be here last week but with the snow and not getting mail at all one day and very little the other days who knows when it will all make it my way. 🙁
    Let me know if you need any Disney help. Did you do you My Disney Experience yet? I can send you a help sheet if you need it 😉

    1. Jennifer

      Oh I haven’t even tried it. It doesn’t seem overly difficult. I’m just lazy.

    How do you like the Vue? I just got elected the leader of a student organization (I’m in grad school), so I now have an office! Unfortunately, the current coffee situation is pretty bad; I think they’re brewing Folgers. I want to get a Keurig, but I don’t know if the extra $$ is worth it for the Vue. Any thoughts?

    1. Jennifer

      We have had the Vue for awhile and I like it. The Vue cups don’t have as many options though!

    You know how with fashion bloggers how you can sometimes shop their closet (aka purchase clothes they wear in posts)? You could do that with your extra box goodies! 🙂 I did watch the Olympics, and poor Bode. In the interview afterward Matt Lauer was really pushing the emotional stuff, too. Looking forward to having Bob Costas back! My to do list this week includes a big work project that just came in and trying desperately to finish my pages for the quiet book exchange I’m participating in. Craftiness does not come easily to me!

      Everyone suggests that, but I just can’t even imagine. The thought of taking pictures, shipping everything individually, etc. would be too much. It’s not even really sub box stuff, it’s just stuff!

      I had the Olympics recorded, so when the interviewer could tell he was getting emotional about his brother and had the bad form to ask him about it instead of using common decency and not pushing him to continue talking about it, I skipped it, and had to go at least a minute ahead to where his wife came to comfort him. I want the stories behind the athletes too, but show some respect broadcasters and don’t expose a man’s private grief in public like that. At least have the decency to cut away instead of push it to see what will happen.

        I know! But know, they just kept showing him. So not cool.

    I have this feeling that there are some recent box things that I didn’t want that didn’t make it to the swap box and therefore aren’t listed. I think they are floating around in the atmosphere of my house somewhere. If that makes sense. It is really bugging me because I don’t know where they are and haven’t found time to dig deep enough to find them. I feel this is a very specific problem only sub box ladies can understand. lol.

    1. Jennifer

      LOL!!!! I know what you mean!

  5. Jes

    I CANNOT wait for your review on iHeartMD! I excited to see how you like it and what you get! For sure seems like a box Id like.

    1. Jennifer

      I will FB you a picture if you want!

  6. Kayla

    Which Memebox did you order? I am getting 5 and it should be here in the next few days… so excited!

    1. Jennifer

      5! It came Friday I think?

  7. Kira

    Have you thought about selling stuff on your blog? I bet you’d get more than thredup/moxie and we all get to see your awesome Gap hauls so I’m sure there would be some interest! Plus totally easy, no crazy Ebayers…LOL

    1. Jennifer

      I have thought about it, but honestly it’d just be too much work. I need to do some local consignment places for the clothes. eBay for the bigger stuff!

    How exciting getting all those boxes this week! I have some stuff coming, but not quite sure what will show up when. I should be getting my New Beauty Test Tube, Fabletics, Splendies, Blackbox, Petite Parcel (Super excited about this one!) along with an Old Navy order for the kids and an order of soapmaking supplies. It should be a fun week for sure!

    1. Jennifer

      That should be a fun week!!!!
