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 was seriously over before it started! B had Monday off and both B and L have tomorrow off, so this was a nice short week. Today is also Donuts with Dad at L’s school, so B and L are totally looking forward to that! We are headed up-north sometime for the holiday weekend and I have my fingers crossed for sun. And also for a little stop at the Pottery Barn outlet on the way up ;).

The lake awaits

The lake awaits

~I still have a few boxes I am expecting this week so things won’t be too slow around here. I am waiting on Mantry, Phone Case of the Month (I think this may be lost somewhere because it’s taking forever), Nerd Block Jr. and a Citrus Lane Mystery Box.  And I also have a few (okay, more than a few) reviews I am behind on, so I am going to work on those this weekend!

~Umm, it appears that you are all pretty excited about my latest Favorite Things Giveaway and that makes me excited!  Like seriously, I didn’t know everyone would go that crazy over this one!  But I can’t blame you for wanting some Tieks!  If you haven’t entered yet, head on over here and do it!

Giveaway Time!

Giveaway Time!

~I am usually a Jimmy Fallon girl, but when Jimmy Kimmel does Mean Tweets OMG I can’t resist.  They are so hysterical.  He gets some huge names to come on there and  read tweets about themselves.  Tears run down my face when they read them.  Love.

~I am sure you all know about it by now, but the 3-wick Coastal Cool candles from Bath & Body Works I am obsessed with are 2 for $22, plus 20% off this weekend (and if you go through ebates, you can get an additional 2% cash back)!  When I got the email yesterday morning I was so excited and I immediately ordered every.single.scent from that line!  Yep, I ordered 8 candles.  But I am going to return two I bought earlier in the week that I haven’t started burning yet.

Such a deal!

Such a deal!

~Did anyone watch the Bachelorette the other night?  Thoughts?  I love Andi and really loved that dress she picked for the first night, but I have to admit, I feel awkward watching it because of Eric’s death.  I must say though, he really seemed to be having a great time and enjoying life!  I have no idea who she is going to end up picking, but I am sure I will pick some favorites soon.

~And finally, I saw this question on Reddit the other day and it has been curious, what company / celebrity do you wish had a subscription box?  I wish LUSH had one and I would love an In Style box or something along those lines!

That’s it for now!  What are you up to today? Any  Memorial Day weekend plans?

    OMG PB outlet so jelly. I saw they were having their big memorial weekend sale and I sent it to my sister. She needs to decorate her first apartment and I think that would be a perfect store to start with 😉 N has school tomorrow but he is off on Monday but we have no plans. I’m not sure how this holiday just kindof snuck up on me. I mean really how did it happen.
    Did you ever make Disney dining plans? I was just looking for someone else and it made me think of you.

    haha i wrote up my post last night and put candles in it too. because OMG. that’s a great sale!!! i need to smell everything and then put my order in. i need to give up buying things at the mall because whenever i do i end up returning it for an awesomer deal online.

    well i wish sephora or mac or something like that would but there really isn’t a need for them to do a box, so it wouldn’t be discounted and everyone would be MEH about it.

    I also feel super awkward watching the bachelorette after hearing about Erics death. I picked my favorite last night of the ones she picked but I can’t remember his name right now lol. Juans season I picked nikki as the one first night so some seasons I’m dead on and others I end up having picked the one of the last 3 as my favorite lol. All I remember right now is this dudes shirt was like blue and purple plaid and yes he did get a rose lol. Also am I the only one who thought the guy with the cookies looked like his shirt was made of picnic table cover fabric lol

    Man, if Gwen Stefani had a subscription box I’d be all over it.

    I’ve always thought it would be interesting if there were a box that based themes around TV shows. Not merch from the show, but products inspired by the characters or story lines or whatever. (It makes way more sense in my head.)

    • Beth

      I love your tv show subscription box idea. I would be totally into a Big Bang Theory Box! I know there is Loot Crate, but a BBT box should be more of a mix of science, comics, gaming and science fiction stuff rather than just gaming & comics.

  • victoria van sickle

    Since you watch the Bachelor and Bachelorette, did you watch the premiere of I Want to Marry “Harry”? I thought it was the real Prince Harry. It is just a guy pretending to be him. If I was the girl at end and he told me that after all that time. I would be mad.

    • Jennifer Post author

      I did not! I saw some previews and knew it wasn’t going to be him. I should watch though. That is my kind of show.

  • Ashley C.

    Definitely an InStyle box … or Sarah Jessica Parker. I’d definitely sign up for that one! I got an email today — the free shipping with BBW is for anything $25 and over today only! And then the rest of the weekend goes back to $50+

  • Cheryl

    Ooh a Lush sub would be great, or even a BBW sub. An Alex and Ani sub would be fun too because I am addicted to their bracelets!

  • Beth

    As far as celebrity boxes go, I would love to see one from Taylor Swift because I like her style and sense of humor. And I would love to see one from someone stylish and plus-sized like Amber from Glee.

  • Lauren

    I have been wishing Lush would send out a subscription box for forever! Their products are often really delicate and hard to ship because they don’t use preservatives, but dammit I am still going to dream!

  • Rebecca F.

    The candles… The candles!! I want to try the new scents in the frosted glass so badly, but I know I don’t need them. And yet they’re on sale and there’s a coupon! It’s so hard to resist them.

      • Rebecca F.

        LoL! I just spent a ton on the little Yankee Candle votive candles to try some scents. They had $15 off of $35 and I wound up with 3 holders and 13 candles. But I have enough to get the B&BWs ones, too. Candle overload!

  • Janaya

    Ahh! It would be amazing if Lush had a subscription box! I’d also love it if Sephora did! I always get so overwhelmed when I go in there! Soo many products that are suppose to be amazing I never know which ones to try!

  • Bethany

    Haha I could tell I wasn’t the only one excited about the giveaway when, as I found out about it SO LATE, I scrolled through about a million other comments to leave mine! 🙂

    I wish Kate Spade had a subscription box! Or Anthropologie!!

    I am watching the Bachelorette. So sad about Eric. 🙁 It is really hard watching, but it seems like they will be kind and respectful in their editing of him.
