Thoughts, Confessions, Hashtags Oh My!

What's New With You

I've been working on this post for a couple weeks, always wanting to add something else before posting and all of a sudden another week has gone by. What have you been up to?

Nadine shared this ecard in her Friday Favorites post (last week recently) and it's one of the most appropriate ecards for me...ever.

I accidentally bought an ebook on Amazon last month. The good news is I really enjoyed it. The bad news is it's the first in a series of three with the same characters so I'll be buying them all since the library doesn't have them. Hitched* by Kendall Ryan and the third/final book just came out this week!!

I've been crossing things off my Summer Goals list *happy dance*. I really wish I could do emojis with this post.

This could also be a confessions post from the looks of it.

A friend of mine got schooled by his 6 year old nephew when he sent the medal emoji in preparation for the Olympics. Apparently if it lacks emotion it can't possibly be an emoji. I get it, I do and it made me wonder if emoji is more of a brand then?

All hail Jennifer Aniston. I've loved her for years and still refuse to see anything with Angelina Jolie. I died a little inside typing that name. I can hold a grudge against someone I don't know with the best of them. She also used my favorite "happily ever after" in her quote and that's part of why I named my blog My Little because an HEA is what you make of it!

I went to buy a larger size of jeans because the ones that fit have a broken zipper or holes that aren't appropriate for work. Well, I'm legit in between sizes. My "size" is just, like, a smidge too tight and the next size up is like who wants to get in these pants with me...I got room for all ya'll. #vacaweightgainproblems #summerweightproblems

Target Cartwheel has 25% off jeans and since I'm just trying to get by I went ahead and bought some.

I'm taking my BBBS Little to Busch Gardens tomorrow and we're getting there early! Trying to beat the crowds and the heat. I haven't been to BG since 2009? so this should be interesting. - We went, we had fun and got out before the rain!! You can SOOO get lost in that place, or maybe it's just me.

I still haven't tried the "pink drink"" from Starbucks. I did try their cold brew and was not impressed. I've been making more of a frappucino with my cold brew at home. Two large spoonfuls of Greek vanilla yogurt, chocolate syrup, condensed milk and ICE!!

I had a goal to pay off my credit cards this year, complete with a few spending freezes/wallet watches but I haven't been so good about those. I have two that aren't store cards and one I pay off every month so it gets used a lot more because I know I'm going to pay it off. The result of doing that is the 0% interest I have on the other card until March hasn't had much of a dent put in it until now. This morning I paid off 1/4 of it so I can get back on track.

I saw BAD MOMS last weekend and it was hilarious. My favorite part was the credits with the celebrities and their moms, awe!!

The table I'm refinishing STILL isn't done, but it's hotter than Hades. I'm off for the next FOUR days so every morning I have plans to get out there before it gets too hot and get this thing done!

What are your plans this weekend?

  1. I haven't tried the pink drink either. I am a fan of SB cold brew when I need a jolt.

    I HATE being in between sizes in pants. It is a lose lose situation.

    Shore this weekend!

  2. Plans this weekend... I think my husband and I are going to see Jason Bourne and we have his mother's birthday party on Saturday. Other than that, I'm keeping it low key because I start back to work next week and want to enjoy my last days of dolce far niente!

    Girl... I'm right there with you in the in between sizes thing. Seriously, how can there be so much of a difference between two consecutive sizes? Weird and bizarre! Good luck!

  3. i am with you! i know jennifer anniston says she doesn't care and has moved on, but i will forever hate angelina whatsherface lol.
    i can't wait to see bad moms, it looks so funny! i'll make sure and wait for the credits.
    i had a goal to pay off my credit cards too. unfortunately, i've just been shopping too much! i have been really good the last 2 months, but i still doubt i will pay them all off by the end of the year. sigh!

  4. I have been wanting to try the pink drink but keep ordering an iced coconut milk mocha machiatto when I go. I hate being between sizes. It is the most annoying thing ever! I am terrified to see where I end up after being pregnant haha. Bad Moms is certainly on my list to see, it looks so good. I love Mila! And Jennifer Anniston! She has always been a fave. She is always so classy and timeless. I hope you have fun at Busch Gardens!!!

  5. OHHHH - you just made my day with the idea to do with homemade cold brew. I've gotta do that this weekend!

  6. I haven't tried the pink drink either. Maybe this month, it sure does look refreshing! I need to get the Target app!

  7. I loved Bad Moms ! I went to see it last night and I cried at the credits. I'm such a baby. lol
    But it was so nice.
