~Since it’s Memorial Day I must first say thank you to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. I won’t forget and this country hasn’t forgotten either.
~We’ve been up-north these past few days, but B, WB and I got home last night to get a few things done around the house so we can relax today. L is opted to stay one more night with my parents up there. The weather up there was bit chilly Friday, but Saturday and Sunday were totally gorgeous. The kids had an amazing time and even though L is still up there, I know he is already counting down the days until the next trip up.
~My goal of getting ALL caught up on subscription box reviews while up-north did not happen. I don’t even know what I was thinking. As a result, it should be a busy week around here. I have posts to do for Ivy Kids, Homegrown Collective, Little Thinker Box, Socialbliss Style Box, Hazel Lane, Birchbox Man, Just Add Honey, PaperDots, PupBox, The Bride Box, Trunk Club, the Tyler Florence Fancy Box and probably one or two more I cannot think of right now. This week I am expecting Phone Case of the Month (I think it’s unlost now), Stitch Fix, Julep (hopefully)! That’s a lot of boxes isn’t it? Wow!
~I FINALLY finished my last book “Family Pictures” by Jane Green and I quite enjoyed it! I wasn’t a huge fan of the ending and would have preferred a few more details on what all went down (I don’t want to spoiler it if you haven’t read it), but it was a good easy read! I have moved on to my next book, but I’ll get into that more in this weeks Newsletter, which will go out tomorrow morning.
~I mentioned last week that I placed that huge Bath & Body Works order and it’s here! It arrived like two days after I ordered it which is amazing. I am telling you, these Coastal Cool collection candles? Get.Them. My mom wasn’t so sure, but I talked her into ordering and she was super pleased with them as well and already wants to go back to the store for more! And yes, I bought every candle in the collection. For $8.80 for a 3-wick, how could I not get them all? The sale is still going on and if you buy online you can go through ebates for an additional 2% cash back.
~Kim and Kanye. So I am still a little confused about the exact timeline of this affair. So first the “wedding dinner” was at Versailles (or was it somewhere else and they just got a tour of Versailles?) and then they chartered a few private jets for everyone to fly to Florence for the actual wedding? Is that right? I read somewhere that the wedding cost was well over $15 million. That seems like umm, a bit much no? And OMG her brother Rob left because they were giving him a hard time about his weight or something? And Brody didn’t even bother attending at all. I am so looking forward to seeing this on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And I must know, do we think this marriage is going to last?
~Is the Bachelorette on tonight or no because of the holiday? I am hoping this is a yes because this season seems to have a pile of drama coming and I’m ready for it.
What’s up for your Monday? Any big Memorial Day plans? And of course, what subscription boxes are you expecting this week?
