Thursday Thoughts

Linking up with Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday's Thoughts!

  • Just re-started my Birchbox  subscription - got it for three months in the spring and thought it was just alright so I paused it but lately some of the reviews are looking better so figured I'd give it a shot again.
  • I also signed up for ipsy since those reviews look even better than Birchbox and I knew there would be a wait list, once ipsy starts coming I'll probably pause birch box again - anyone who knows me, knows I'm not THAT into beauty products, but I'm trying. Regardless, I don't think I need two ongoing subscriptions.
  • One of the bloggers I follow (the one I linked up with today) gets a bajilloon subscription boxes each month (she started as my main go-to girl when looking for reviews on boxes and then I just enjoyed reading all her blogs - so now I regularly read her stuff) but yea she put up a promo code "FB7OFF" for Love With Food today, only $5 for your first month, cancel anytime so I'm trying that one out too this month! If I had a lot more random disposable income I'd probably subscribe to some more baby/kids boxes for EM but they tend to be on the pricier side so we'll just stick to Citrus Lane for now, which came today!
  • I started realizing how obsessed I was getting with weighing myself every day - always first thing in the morning  (pretty much every single week day for years except when I was pregnant), so I decided to try only once a week. So last Friday I weighed myself and so far so good, haven't jumped on the scale but out of habit I almost did a few times. Will be interesting to see what it says tomorrow. Was really good with food choices this week and did walk or run 4x this week (3-4x/wk is my goal) and logged 17.96 miles!
  • I'm going to undo all my hard work mentioned above on Saturday while we Drink around the World at Epcot's World Showcase - and it's also the 'Food and Wine Festival' so I'll be eating some around the world too lol if you've never done this, grab a group of friends, and do it! It's so much fun! Can't freaking wait!
  • EM was 11 months yesterday and this was the first month I didn't get her monthly sticker picture on the exact day - I was going to do it after her last nighttime sippy cup before I put her to bed, she had other ideas: 
    like passing out

    but I got one this morning :)

  1. I always wanted to go to the Epcot food and wine festival! I've been when it was happening but never went. One year I'll partake though!

  2. It's so much fun! Definitely make the trip to do it!


I would love to hear from you, please leave a comment if you are stopping in for a looksy!
