Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m smiling because:

~It’s suppose to snow today! 5-7 inches to be exact. YES! Fresh snow and “warm” weather. Yes please! Bring it!

I'm in the Blue!  A solid 7 inches is what they are saying...

~My brother is coming over to hang up some more superhero things in L’s room next week!  I am skipping asking B from now on and will move directly to someone who will get this done!

~The little boys and I are having a donut date this morning! We saw that Dunkin’ Donuts has heart shaped donuts out and we cannot resist that.  B has National Guard “stuff” (*) so he’ll miss out. Too bad for him!


~Our plumbing issue was must less expensive than I had expected and that always makes me happy!   Seriously I envision bills of $500+ when I need to call in a professional (**).  It was $85.  LOL!

~I saw the coolest new product (it’s call The Cookie Dough Cafe) on Shark Tank last night and as luck would have it, a store near me sells it! Tell me cookie dough (no eggs in it) in a jar doesn’t sound amazing. I mean seriously. I need this in my life.

Why didn't I think of this?

~It’s February 1st, so that means we’ll get to see the new Bespoke Post options, Fabletics collection and more today!

~I posted a fun giveaway last night! Don’t forget to go enter!

Go enter!
Go enter!

~L doesn’t have any homework this weekend so it’s fun fun fun. We do need to practice a few things (writing and tying shoes), but not having actual homework is nice.

~The Super Bowl is this weekend!  I am already long all the sneak peeks we are getting of the commercials and I’m ready for the big event!

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

(*) That’s my term for anything he does with the NG. I don’t really ask too many details on what he does.
(**) Since I would want to know what it was if I were you because I am nosey like that, the toilet in L’s bathroom was making this crazy loud noise when it flushed. Like I thought a pipe was about to blow up at any second.

    I totally saw the Cookie Dough Cafe on Shark Tank and I want to try some sooooo badly!

    1. Jennifer

      I NEED to try it!

  3. Katrina

    One of the heart donuts is brownie batter flavor right? I’ve been wanting to try it SO badly. Maybe I can wake J up and convince him we need donuts….

    1. Jennifer

      It is! L had that one. he loved it!

  4. MJ

    I think my JLH Fancy box is coming. The tracking says the estimated delivery is today, but it says it’s still in CT. I’m hoping it comes today!!

    1. Jennifer

      Mine is coming today too!

  5. The Cookie Dough Cafe idea is GENIUS. Oh man. I now how a desperate craving for cookie dough… 😛

    Unfortunately, it looks like I would have to make a trek to Santa Barbara to get to some (which is at least an hour and a half outside of LA— barring traffic). Looks like I might have to bake some cookies today!

    1. Jennifer

      That would be quite a trek for cookie dough!!!

    I watch Shark Tank too! I went to college in the city that the two girls from The Cookie Dough Cafe live in. Too cool. Sadly, there’s no Fresh Markets where I am currently, but there’s one by my parents. Def need to go visit them…aaand get some of that dough 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      Totally. I cannot stop thinking about it!

    Those donuts are too cute! M is working on Valentines day … so maybe I’ll take the kids to Dunkin for a little morning treat that day!

    1. Jennifer

      That’s a great idea! They were a big hit around here.

  8. Susan

    I found a store about 40 min away that sells it! I’m definitely making a trip there.

    1. Jennifer

      I think it will be worth the trip!

    So glad your plumbing problem wasn’t too expensive. I love my plumber. He’s not expensive, and I never feel bad about calling him, because he has a super big family, and I know every call helps.

    1. Jennifer

      THat’s good! Everyone in my family uses this guy (big Bob – he actually has a plumber’s crack too) so I knew he wouldn’t screw me over. I just never know what to expect!

  10. Bethany

    Okay, donuts and cookie dough in one post! You’re killing me here! We will be watching the Super Bowl commercials but have the game on in the background while we do other things, no doubt. There are some seriously funny commercials I’ve seen already!

    1. Jennifer

      LOL I know! The donuts were a bit hit. WB wanted a second one. LOL!!

    I’m mostly just VERY excited to see that so many other people watch Shark Tank! I dvr it religiously and have to watch it when my hubby is doing something else or at work. He doesn’t enjoy it and gets aggravated at the shark. And since he feels he must voice his opinion to the people on the television who can’t hear him, it drives me batty watching it with him 🙂 He just doesn’t understand why I like it so much. Hurray…i’m not the only one!

    1. Jennifer

      I love shark tank so much!!!

  12. Jenny

    I need to record Shark Tank. I never get to watch it when it is on and they have some of he coolest things. I need to look into the Cookie Dough Cafe thing. That sounds awesome.

    1. Jennifer

      Oh look into it for sure!!! Do you have any Fresh Markets by you? They sell them there!

      1. Jenny

        I do have a Fresh market about 15min away. I’m needing to go there for a couple other things so I may need to add that to my todo list this week.

  13. Shannon

    A Cookie Dough Cafe?!?!? I am going to have to watch Shark Tank. What an amazing idea!

    1. Jennifer

      It’s pre packaged cookie dough. I NEED some!
