Thursday Thoughts

I haven't done this post in awhile but I'm here today to link up for Thursday Thoughts with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.  

  • Are you all expecting the bad weather this weekend?  We are supposed to get ice and some snow tomorrow and since NC doesn't do well in winter I expect to be in the house for awhile.

  • I have the best friends. I've said before we make gifts for each other for Christmas and my friend Michelle made these for us.  She talks about them over on her blog 3 Monkeys Throwing Around some Paper the other day. Mine has a prominent spot in my bathroom :)

  • Do any of you do a chart like this?  I took a screen shot of this one the other day.  We have some unwritten chores here that they do but I think I could come up with some extras for them. Mine are trying to raise money for when we go to Disney so thinking this might work.  We would have the you must do your required chores first and then you could do extras for money.  N is tracked out next week and we are going to work on it.

  • I used this as my Throwback Thursday today and it has me just a little to excited.  We are currently waiting on our next set of bands and can't wait for it to be our time to go.

Stay safe this weekend everyone.

Happy Monday!!!  Are your kids home today? Both of mine are with one going back tomorrow and the other on Wednesday. So we've been busy getting things ready for the week and then track out that starts next week. So checking in with my normal Monday link up with Becky over at Choose Happy for her Currently post and a little recap.


Amused--- with the weather.  It was 60 the other day and then yesterday it snowed and today its in the 30s.  Craziness here but that is what we get in NC.

Hungry---and I want more bundt cakes. LOL  N had early release on Friday so we ran to Nothing Bundt Cakes for a little weekend snack. Hmm I wonder if the boys would notice if I went while they were at school this week and got one to eat all by myself ;)

Watching--- football.  I'm a boymom and out numbered here so with all the games this weekend we did a lot of this.  Yesterday with the snow and rain we stayed in and wore jammies all day. It also meant pizza in front of the tv.  Go Panthers!!!

Sad--- shopping.  I realized this week that we are really out of the toddler section.  C can wear a 5T if the store offers it but the regular 5s fit better and he really wants to older kid look of a 5. I'll miss shopping for all the little clothes.

Laughing--- at this floating around my feeds last week. This is the best and if you have Disney kids you will totally understand.  I'd love me a toodles to work around my house.

Have a great week everyone and stay warm!!!

TV Talk - American Horror Story

TV Talk

So I'm mixing it up a bit this year and I'm going to chat TV or whatever as I think about it and not just a certain day in the week. This way I can get my thoughts out there when I have them.  It may be about multiple things or just a specific thing or who knows.  Anyway we'll see how this goes and I can change it up from there.

Since this is TV Talk it will have SPOILERS and since I don't watch things in order since I Tivo everything these could be new or could be older shows.

Today I'm talking about American Horror Story: Hotel

So as I've said before I haven't watched any other seasons but I've heard great things and with this season having Matt Bomer whom I love I decided to give it a shot.  I liked the show as a whole. I'm not sure it is one that I will go back and watch the seasons that I've missed but I  might watch next season depending on the cast and theme etc.  Anyhow lets talk about the finale.  I love when a show gives me a flashforward at the end and I get to see where everyone is in their lives. AHS did that great this week. I will admit I had expected them to somehow kill the ghosts or  cleanse them or something but really they all kindof turned into a big happy family which is odd but I totally get.  While I think they really played up Lady Gaga and she did a good job I'm glad while the show was centered around here she wasn't the end all to the season. She wasn't the only thing going on in the hotel. I love her true feelings for Liz and while Liz was not great to her she still loved her and wanted to be with her when she transitioned. It was also nice to see Liz have a grand way to stay in the hotel in the end and not just be there and die of old age.

Who all watched this season?  Did you like it? How do you think it compared to other seasons?

Happy viewing,

Happy Monday!!!  Are you ready for the week?  I'm starting slow so far but I have big plans. We'll see how it goes. Starting the week with my normal Monday link up with Becky over at Choose Happy for her Currently post and a little recap.


Feeling--- accomplished - My sister came over and I worked on cleaning out  my closet. I have a double hung closet and pretty much the top was full of stuff from when I worked outside the home over 5 years ago. LOL They aren't really my style and/or size so they needed to go but I was slacking on getting to it.  While she was here I really cleaned it out and have three trash bags full of clothes to donate this week.  I still want to work on the bottom rack but this is a great start.

Finishing--- Reading- I got two new books for Christmas and I started the second one in carpool Friday and I actually finished it last night. LOL  It was sosososo good and I didn't want to put it down at all.  And before you ask yes I still read real books. I just can't get into reading online and while I do it I prefer to get a book and curl up in my chair or take a bath and really get into it.  I don't get that feeling reading electronically so books it is for me.  Sweet Ruin is part of the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole and I've read the whole series so far.  I'd have to look but this is probably book 12 or more into it and it is just as good as when it started.  I can't wait to see what happens in each one and only getting one book a year is like torture. I kindof feel like I should start and the beginning and read through them again. :)

Cheering--- the Hurricanes - My MIL was able to get some tickets to the game Friday night so we all went.  The boys loved it and we won so all was good.  

Laughing--- at Kali- So if you have a cat your probably get this but M will not let her in the bathroom with him in the morning. He usually opens the door before he steps in the shower but he forgot the other day and this is what she did. LOL  She sat there and waited patiently to get in.  She has really gotten in to getting in the shower when we get out to get some fresh water so she is so funny.  

So that is my random pics from the last couple of days.  I hope you have a great week. It is starting to get colder here in NC but still no real bad weather.  I'm sure we will get some soon though. My boys are looking forward to it. Keep safe if you are having the crazy snow now.

Have a great week,

Happy New Year everyone!!!  I took a blogging break over the holidays but I am back and ready to kick off 2016.  Starting the year with my normal Monday link up with Becky over at Choose Happy for her Currently post and a little recap.


Thankful--- for such a great Christmas. Santa was good to us all and we had a ton of fun opening gifts and playing with all our new goodies.

Excited--- that we finally got to see Star Wars.  I am not a huge Star Wars fan. I mean I've watched them all and I enjoy them but I don't fangirl all over them like I do with some other series ;) but it was really good and I know I will be buying it and watching the others as they came out.  M couldn't wait so he went opening night and then he went again with me and the boys. Both boys really liked it and have been talking about it non-stop so we will probably try and go again before it is out of theaters.

Ringing--- in the New Year.  We just wen to over to the neighbors and I fully expected to leave early and bring C home but he made it until midnight.  I'm pretty sure he was then asleep by 12:10 but he did make it.  Yay for the NEW YEAR!!!

Working--- on new Disney Vacations. The next round of discounts were released last week and I've been busy planning Spring and Summer trips for people including myself.  I can't wait to go back and see what has changed since my last trip and what they are working on for all the new areas they are preparing.  You can see all the details in my post from last week HERE and/or keep an eye on my facebook page as it is the first place I will post discounts as they are released and other fun information Jenny@Love The Mouse Travel.

Have a great start to the New Year. I can't wait to catch up with everyone as the year progresses.  Do you have any big plans this year?  Anything you are really looking forward to or are planning on doing?  There is so much possibility.

Have a great week,
