Bali Sunrise
Bali Sunrise

I am so into these Target candles lately!  Their summer scents (Sea Salt & Sand, Bali Sunrise and Island Coconut are my favorites) are amazing. Makes me feel like I am in Bali.  Sort of.  Okay not really, but it smells good.

Currently Watching…
The Challenge: Fresh Meat.  My iTunes keeps timing out and it’s super annoying, but this show is totally worth it.  Why why why isn’t CT on here this season though?  Why?  They shouldn’t even be allowed to do a show without him.  ETA: He is on there!  Clearly I need to be paying more attention to my reality shows.  Or he needs to do more crazy stuff!

Currently Buying…

The Haul
The Haul

It went down today at LUSH.  Before I even knew what happening, I had like everything in the store at the counter.  The salesgirl was trying some of the face soap / moisturizer on my hands and WB pushes his sleeves up and had her do his too.  I was cracking up.  Anytime I put he sees a hand cream or a lip balm around the house, he has to put that on as well.  So sweet.

Currently On My “To Do” List…
On the immediate list is to clean the spare bedroom at least so it can be used this weekend and figure out a plan for L’s birthday next week.  I am thinking of doing a balloon door (like this or something like this) for the morning of his birthday so when he opens the door there will be balloons everywhere!  So I guess my To Do list includes buying balloons!

Currently Excited About…
Vanilla EOS lip balm!  I am doing a swap / trade for this elusive gem and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.  Or really, I can’t wait to get it on my lips.

Currently Annoyed About…


Ugh.  So while at the mall to get rain boots for the boys I bought WB some Toms as well.  Had him try them on any everything.  And wouldn’t you know it, they are the same exact size as his ones from last year (which were probably a bit too big then).  Looks like we will be headed back to Nordstrom this week!  And what’s worse is that this is not the first time I have done this.  Nope.  I did it with winter boots for L.  He even told me the new ones (same brand, same style) fit better.  LOL.  Randomly looked after he’d been wearing the new ones for months and wouldn’t you know it, same exact size.  Grrr!!!

Currently Anxious About…
Nothing really.  I should be anxious about getting things cleaned out for the garage sale, but I don’t care too much.  LOL!

Currently Reading…
Deadspin.  I don’t know where they get some of these stories (like the bachelor party that found a dead body in their rented RV), but they always keep me interested.  Always.

Currently Plotting…
Still trying to figure out where we are going for L’s birthday weekend.  And also, I am plotting for when WB is ready for a big boy bed!  He’s so close to climbing out of his and it won’t be long till he figures it out!

What’s currently going on with you today?  How’s your Monday?

    Well I produced snow for Ns 6th birthday. LOL not sure I will ever be able to live up to that expectation again. 🙂
    Don’t you hate when you do that with shoes? I need to figure out what kindof shoes we still need here. I know we need new rainboots? Did you find any? N likes Toms but they have to be a certain one so he needs to pick them out. C is all about his rainbows so I guess he’ll be wearing those most of the summer.

      You did? Show off!!!!!

      I got rain boots at Nordstrom. They are SuperMan! WB is getting Spiderman. I had to have her order them for me.

      1. Jenny

        HaHa well his birthday is the end of Jan so it kicked off our snow spree. Next year he will not be as happy as he goes back to school after 6.5 weeks off. Not sure that is the best birthday present. LOL

    I am so glad there isn’t a Lush anywhere near me – I’d do that same. I can’t get my powder room project off my mind! Makes for a very long, distracted day at work.

    1. Jennifer

      What are you doing to your powder room??

      1. Alex M

        We have a purple powder room with white trim, so I just bought a white floating shelf from Target and some candle/oil/rock accessories to decorate it with. It took soooo long to figure out any kind of plan for it, however simple it ended up being, but I’m so excited for it. Now it’s just hard to put everything else down and go hang the shelf to get everything started!

        Also, I meant to type “I’d do the same*” in my previous post. Quick hands!

        1. Jennifer

          That will be cute!!!

    I just got my shipment notice for my Popsugar May box. Do you have any spoilers yet?!

    1. Jennifer

      No! I don’t think anyone has gotten theirs yet ;(

      1. Meredith

        This is only my second box. Last month I subscribed late so I had already seen everything that was in it. The suspense is killing me this month! Lol The delivery date is next Wednesday but the last one came a few days earlier than it said so I’m hoping this one will too.

    I started visiting your site for the subscription box spoilers but after reading your blog posts for a couple of months I think I look forward to seeing your pictures and funny comments even more! Your boys are so cute, I love seeing their pictures and your funny stories about them. My boys are 20 and 17 seems like just a few minutes ago they were your two boys ages. The time goes by so quick! Anyway, just wanted to take a minute and say thanks for being a bright spot out there on the world wide web!

    1. Jennifer

      Aww, thank you so much!!! Tell me, how do your boys get along now? My boys are 4 years apart and I have dreams of them always being super close. Can this happen???

      1. Kate

        oh my gosh, yes! My sons are 3 years and 9 months difference in age and they are best friends. I think it helped that it was just the two of them, we decided against a 3rd child simply because it was easier 2 parents for 2 kids! lol That turned out to be a wise decision. I can tell by the look of your 2 boys they will be the same way….just keep fostering their friendship as well as their brotherhood. You guys are adorable! 🙂

        1. Jennifer

          That is great to hear!!!!

  5. I just watched the first two episodes of the new Challenge, but I think it’s called Free Agents, and CT is on it. It just started a few weeks ago and I found them OnDemand. So far really like the way this one is played.

    1. Jennifer

      OMG you are totally right! Where was he in this episode I was watching????

  6. Chris

    My mom and dad used to get really upset about the same shoes sizes and us saying one was more comfortable than the other DESPITE being the same size. Then my dad tried on two pairs of shoes and had the same experience. Turns out, different countries of origin might have different sizes since they are not standardized. Maybe check the countries? It might just be kids being kids, but there is a slim chance they might feel better–especially if the shoe is wider or something. :3

    1. Jennifer

      OMG I am going to check that!!!!

  7. Carla

    Ahhh you got some FUN! Did the boys love it??

    1. Jennifer

      They did!!!!! I couldn’t get L out of the tun he was so into it!
