It’s time for another Thursday Thoughts! If you want to participate, but have no idea what a link-up is, you can check out my explanation of it here.

~This week is flying! Probably because I have so much to do, but keep avoiding it and now I feel like I am running out of time. Not sure! Today’s agenda includes Valentine’s gifts for the boys (all three of them), goodie bags for L’s friends at school and getting a game together for his party at school tomorrow.

~Ice skating is going strong at the Games and I am loving that it’s going to be on my tv for the next, what week straight?  Love.  It does make me sad when people who didn’t win who had expected to win or were “supposed” to win.  That feeling must suck.

~I am also expecting a ton of boxes the remainder of this week, including ipsy, Birchbox, Love With Food, Fabletics, Lip Factory, MeowBox, Happy Dog Box, the Tyler Florence Fancy Box and the Kelly Rowland Fancy Box!  Are you expecting anything else in the next few days?  Anything you can’t wait to get?

~In case you haven’t heard, Erin Condren Planners are 40% off right now.  You have to get a pack of labels with it as well (which are also 40% off), but if you have been wanting to order, now is the time.  It doesn’t get any better than this!

Planner Sale!

~L is headed up-north this weekend (assuming his cough doesn’t get the best of him) and he is SO excited!  He hasn’t been up there since after Christmas and he has next week off school (*), so this is perfect. There is a ton of snow up there for him and he’ll get to see Grandma Dorothy (my mom’s mom who is 95), so he’s ready to get up there.

He insisted we go to the doctor.

~What do we think he going on with Bruce Jenner? Does he want to be a woman or is he just addicted to plastic surgery a la Michael Jackson?  For people who address (and film) just about every other thing that goes on in their life, you’d think they’d mention this?  Like officially?

~I haven’t gotten a chance to watch the latest Teen Mom 2 this week (it was on right), but that’s for sure going down during nap time today.  Should I be excited?  And umm, did anyone see / hear about Farrah’s latest project?  I’m not even going to link it because I don’t want anyone at work to click on accident and end up with more than they wanted to see on their screen.  I don’t think I ever would have predicted she’d be a porn star.  Maybe a dancer?  Who knows.

What’s going on for your Thursday today?  Do you have any big weekend plans?  Let me know and of course, link-up!

    Bruce is getting scary looking, but I can not stop looking at him!! Hope L feels better! 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      I am fascinated. I like the MJ theory. That seems believable.

  2. Jenny

    We don’t get a winter week break but surprised they don’t take some of it away for your snowy weather. Are you guys going to miss anydays this week?
    Bruce Jenner is just a hot mess. So sad.

    1. Jennifer

      Oh no way. They’d never take our breaks away. I am sure that’s in the teacher’s contacts! Lots of people schedule vacations during that time (teachers included). It would cause a riot I bet! We won’t miss any this week. It’s not snowing up here.

  3. Tiffany

    i thought teen mom was alright this week.. alot of drama is about to go down though!! Cant wait to hear your thoughts on it!

    1. Jennifer

      Just watched! Everyone seemed to be getting along too well. Trouble must be brewing!

      1. Tiffany

        I agree!! What did you think of Janelle saying ” were going to try and have a baby” they have been dating for like half a second!

        Do you think Corey is in denial about Ali? I totally do.. i think its great hes optomistic.. but maybe a little bit in denial.

        OK and do you think thats Chelseas mom secretely wants adam and chelsea back together? call me crazy but she always seems to ask the weirdest questions about him.. like when they went to preschool orientation and she said… “did he say you look nice today” who cares LOL

        rant over!

        1. Jennifer

          I think he’s in denial.

          That or I think her mom knows they are hooking up on the side or something???

  4. Carla

    Did you notice that the TF Fancy box weighs 5.9lbs? What?? Do you think they are shipping us a 5lb turkey?? Ha!!!!! 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      Did you get yours? Mine just came!

  5. Bethany

    Oh the ice skating! So much talent! My husband pointed out last night that all Winter Olympic sports involve sliding on ice in some capacity. I’m trying to think of an exception to this but can’t.. I’m excited your TF Fancy Box is on its way!! Can’t wait!

    1. Jennifer

      Hmm, I wonder if there is an exception? Thats a good one…

  6. Jennifer Spencer

    I need to watch the latest Teen Mom 2. I think this is one of my favorite casts. I can’t wait to see how Adam handles the two babies.

    I’m still waiting on my ipsy and Kelly Rowland box.

    1. Jennifer

      I just watched today! The baby isn’t here yet, but soon!

      I got Kelly Rowland today!

      1. Jennfier Spencer

        I can’t wait to go watch it.

        I can’t wait to see what’s inside the box.

    Is there a promo code needed for the 40% off EC? I have the items in my cart and went all the way through checkout but it does not seem to be applying a discount …eep!

    1. Jennifer

      No, I think it should apply automatically?

      1. Tiffany


      2. Gabby G

        Hmmm maybe I did something wrong…Ill look into it! I’ve been dying to get one of these planners and this seems like such a great steal!

        1. Jennifer

          I will try it out later and see what happens when I do it??

        2. Gabby G

          I just checked and clearly I wasn’t paying any attention when looking at the site before because its right in the ad once you click it LOL. you have to enter: COMBO2014 at checkout!

          1. Jennifer

            I didn’t see that either!

  8. Beth

    I got my special Taste Trunk Valentine’s box today. It was a bit heavy on the caramels for me, but that’s cool too, because the caramels were full sized packages so I think I’ll give them as gifts to some unsuspecting caramel fans. The chocolates versus caramels issue is why I haven’t gone ahead and subscribed to any of the treats boxes like Treatsie, because I would really prefer one that’s wholly chocolate based. If I was at a more organized time in my life, I’d go ahead and try starting my own.

    As for Bruce Jenner, I really don’t understand it either. I suppose we’ll find out one way or the other in the coming year or two. It would be interesting if he does have gender reassignment surgery. It might explain the friendly separation, and I think his family would really support him pursuing whatever will make him happy. It does make me sad when people take perfectly good faces and muck them up with too much plastic surgery or faulty plastic surgery. I find Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren so beautiful for embracing their age, and showing us how fantastic you can look as you grow older and let your inner beauty shine through.

    1. Jennifer

      Honestly I think Bruce was aging quite nicely before all the surgery!!!! He looked good!

    My Thursday thought is that that I am seriously so excited for next week of Pretty Little Liars. Ever since I saw the preview for next week, I just cannot handle the anticipation. I’m going to try to start a blog because it has always sounded very interesting to me, and I will definitely do link-ups for this! I love this idea.

    Also, I read your posts on starting blogs and other tips. It was really helpful! Thanks for having those!

    1. Jennifer

      No problem! It really is super easy to start one!

  10. Jen K

    OMG! Bruce Jenner! No way! I never knew!

    Kids and being sick… Ugh! Why can’t we enjoy the snow, winter wonderland and hot chocolate without ever anyone getting sick!

    Are you checking out Target Valentine’s sale? I look forward to your tips and pointers.

    1. Jennifer

      I think I will go there this weekend!!
