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.

~I really had to think hard about what day it was today. I don’t know if it’s because it’s Spring Break or what, but I am all confused. I do know that today is IKEA day and I am very excited about that! I don’t care what B says, I am SO picking up more nail polish racks and WB is getting his own “little doggie”.

~We didn’t end up going anywhere for Spring Break (time just ran out on us), but we have been soaking up this nice weather and playing outside as much as possible.  We’ve been to the farm, the outdoor mall and spent tons of time cruising the neighborhood.  I am really hoping that they slow down building all these houses around us at least for the next few years because having all this space for the kids to play and not have to worry about cars is amazing.


~I am still expecting a few boxes this week, including my April PopSugar Must Have Box, Fabletics, Birchbox and OMG my Fancy Mystery Box shipped!!!  Yes!  Next week will be crazy as well since I know that Citrus Lane, PopSugar Resort, Kiwi Crate, ipsy and Love With Food will be here and probably lots more.  I love it!!!   Oh and my Her Fashion Box (for MARCH) should be appearing soon as well. And if you missed it yesterday, I am giving away a PopSugar Resort Box. You can enter here.

~Remember how I posted about having to take my MacBook in because I broke the trackpad?  Well, I didn’t break it, it just broke, but whatever.  They told me I’d have to pay for the repair since it wasn’t a defect and that they’d have it for 3-4 days.  I dropped it off Tuesday night and what do you know they called me yesterday morning (not even 24 hours later) and it was ready.  And get this, they didn’t even charge me.  Nope. I tried to pay and they were like you are all set.  I love those Genius Bar people.  Seriously they know everything and never ever make you feel stupid for asking ,well, stupid questions.  It’s no wonder that store is always jam packed (well except in my picture below).

~Teen Mom.  Oh my goodness.  What was that train wreck?  Nathan.  Nice resisting arrest after driving DRUNK and then saying that the police need to have some more respect for you.  Umm, okay, yeah, that’s what needs to happen in this situation.  And yeah Leah, I wonder why Jeremy is worried about your relationship with Corey? I’m worried about it too.  I’m sad that Kailyn’s mom was drinking again and let her down, but that new baby is adorable!

~I picked up the John Frieda’s Clear Shine Luminous Color Glaze at CVS the other night (thanks for the recs everyone) and promised on Instagram to report back on the results.  My hair looks really good, but I am not 100% sure if it’s the haircut or the glaze or a combination of it all?  You are supposed to use this weekly (there is enough in the container for more than one use) or daily after you shampoo (I am doing the weekly treatments), and it’s supposed to get shinier and shiner the more you use it.  So far I am happy and will be keeping up with it weekly!

~I posted about the amazing friendship between MSU basketball Adreian Payne and 8 year-old Princess Lacey a while ago and I am sad to report that she passed away (warning: the video in the link may make you cry) yesterday ;(. I really thought she was going to be okay.  She always looked so happy when they were together and my heart goes out to him and to her family and the entire Spartan Nation.  Dance on Lacey.  #riplacey #lovelikelacey

And since I don’t want to end this on a sad note, I will ask, what’s going on for your Thursday?  Any weekend plans?  Are you as excited about the Master’s as I am?  #golfnerd #idontevenplay

    Im worried about Leah and Corey’s relationship too! and im pretty sure Leah provokes Corey… I really think leah and corey still love each other, and rushed to get divorced and remarried, and probably are wishing now they had tried and gave it another chance.. they were so young, but its pretty obvious they still love each other…

    my favorite part of the show was when issac took off lincolns hat and said momma his hair is disgusting!! LOL

    1. Jennifer

      I totally agree. I think they wish they would have stuck it out.

      And OMG I was cracking up he said that!

  2. Beth

    I couldn’t believe the news Lacey had died either 🙁 She always seemed so happy and vibrant when we saw her. It unexpectedly really upset me yesterday. So unfair.

    My April Popsugar got here yesterday – and I got two sets of towels somehow. Not sure how I feel about them. On the one hand, I feel they are a let down from the cute pattern I thought we were getting, on the other hand, they are still kitchen towels that match my place – just not the wording….that is not me. They will probably go in a drawer but still be used.

    1. Jennifer

      I know. I was not expecting that yesterday morning. She seemed so happy and full of life on when they showed her just last weekend!

      Are they all the same pattern? They say Awesome on them or something?? Mine should be here today or tomorrow.

      1. Beth

        I don’t think there are any variations according to the card. One towel says “Totally” the other says “Awesome”

    I got my April PopSugar box yesterday! I loved it!!! My favorite items were the eyeshadow palette and tea towel set and the bag. Pretty much everything. I’m still expecting my Mystery Fancy Box, Mystery Speckled Julep and PopSugar Resort. I obviously love mystery boxes. lol.

    1. Jennifer

      I can’t wait to get mine. Post what you get in the julep mystery box. I didn’t get that one. Heck I want to know that’s in the fancy one too!

    I probably shouldn’t tell you this…… I was in Dollar Tree this morning (do you guys have those in MI?). Anyway, in the office supply aisle was a HUGE selection of adorable washi tape and since it’s Dollar Tree, it’s $1 per roll 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      I have heard about this, but I haven’t seen it at mine! I should go look again……..

    2. Beth

      I was just in our Dollar Tree on Wednesday, and still no washi tape. I’m having washi tape envy.

    After first hearing about Lacey through your blog … I told my husband, who weirdly is a huge MS fan even thought we ive in Birmingham, AL but anywho,I was very sad to hear about her passing. BUT I must say I love to hear about good hearted players that TRUELY have a relationship with patients from the hospitals they REGULARY go visit for publicty!!

    I love my BB this month … 6 items! Number 4 – masque, Sumita eyeliner, Number 4 shampoo, CC gems colletion polish, theBalm how ’bout them apples , and a KIND bar!!
    Are you as impressed with PS as I am .. boy they have really outdone themselves lately! *Heres to hoping May is just as good*

    1. Jennifer

      I always love PS! I hope May is amazing as well. I think BB has been hitting it out of the park lately too!

  6. Kristine

    Yeah for John Frieda! Hope you love it!

    1. Jennifer

      I can’t wait to use it again next week!

    I had to make a trip to Apple this past week too. I dropped my phone when I was getting my car detailed because I was trading it in. And the whole screen detached from the phone. I was in tears because I had had the worst week ever! I called and made an appointment to have it fixed, he said it would cost me $293 with tax. I got there, took out my card to pay, and while I was sitting there, he brought the thing for me to sign and said “this is how much it would be, but there is no charge for you today”. I was stunned and so thankful especially since he had no idea how upset and mad I was. As busy as there store it, and how much I dread going there, they really are nice to their customers!

    1. Jennifer

      They are SO nice. I love them. They have hooked me up more times than I can count. Amazing service!

  8. Beth

    I’m so sorry to hear the news about Lacey.

    On a mundane note, I got email from Birch Box trying to get me to come back, but they didn’t bother offering any sort of discount. They could have probably swayed me with even a little discount — your box sounds really nice!

    1. Jennifer

      Use that BB100 code. It’s 100 Birchbox points when you sign up!

    Did you hear that Nathan is in jail right now because of that DUI? He had a court date for charges related to that incident and they sentenced him to 30 days in jail. I guess he requested a jury trial for his DUI so depending on that he might have to go to jail for even longer!

    1. Jennifer

      No, I didn’t know that!! I am off to google!

    I got my PopSugar box yesterday, and it was awesome. I loved everything except the snack mix. I usually like trail mix, granola, etc. but this just wasn’t very good (IMO). I’m curious to see what you think. Also, they usually put at least 3-4 coupon codes in each month, but there were only 2 this time.

    1. Jennifer

      Oh I can’t wait to try it! I never use the coupon codes, so I guess that is okay.

  11. Iris

    YAY! Your Fancy mystery box shipped! I’m super excited to see what you get. XD

    1. Jennifer

      I cannot wait! It will be here Monday!
