Random Thoughts

Time for a random post.

1. I have found so many great deals on the internet lately, I have done almost all my Christmas shopping online. I love it.

2. I had to blow up a lot of balloons at work this week. I'm not sure if I've ever shared this but I am afraid of balloons. Those things are terrifying. They could pop in your face without any warning at all. I also hate opening cans of biscuits or anything that POPS. It's too much for me to handle.

3. As much as I don't want Eli to grow up fast, I'm excited about him being old enough to do the Elf on a Shelf tradition. I have already tried to think of places to put that Elf, I have some good ideas!

4. Last week I made a recipe that I found on Pinterest for the first time. It was Salsa Chicken. It was really good and something I will add to our rotation.

5. Lately, Luke has started talking about how he really wants to put a deck on our back porch so for his Christmas present his dad came and built one for us. I am in love with it! It turned out so great! It will be so nice to have when the weather gets warmer. He did a really great job!

6. I absolutely love that Friends comes on Nick at Nite now. Yes it makes me feel old but I could watch this show 24 hours a day and be just fine. It never gets old. I especially love watching the episodes from the early years.

7. Our Christmas tree is up and so far Eli doesn't care at all. We even put a tree in his room and he doesn't bother it at all. I thought he would try and pull the trees down but he shows no interest.

8. I plan on going shopping on Black Friday. I think it is so fun. I'm one of those weird people that enjoys the hustle and bustle of that day. People can be crazy, yes, but it's fun to sit back and watch the crazies.

9. I am loving Luke being on a teacher's schedule. It is so nice that he has the built in school breaks. I know he enjoys it also.

10. I am really craving pigs in the blanket. I think I will make those tomorrow. They will make a great pre-thanksgiving meal.


  1. I love your blog! :) I hope you don't mind that I became a follower of your blog! :) Erin

  2. 1) I made pigs in a blanket last night.
    2) That deck is AMAZING, he did an amazing job.
    3) I want to hear more about these deals you've found online. I keep shopping for myself but have yet to buy anyone else a gift.
    4) Oh Friends. I love that show so much.

  3. The deck is gorgeous!! I want one!!

  4. I hate balloons too! Gah! The sound they make when they pop makes me want to hit the are so not alone.

    The deck looks awesome! Andrew *my hubby* has all of a sudden got that idea in his head too...must be a guy thing? I'm supportive tho.

    Bless little Eli and his first Christmas! I hope it's amazing.

    p.s. SO excited that you started following me on twitter. It doesn't take much :)

  5. 1) I love the deck!!! He did an amazing job on it!

    2) I *heart* Friends. There are certain episodes that make me cry laughing, even though I've seen them dozens of times. (ie, Ross' leather pants episode)

    3) I like Black Friday, too. In fact, it's the only day of the year that I actually LIKE to shop.

  6. The deck looks fab, I heart Friends too, and Black Friday? Can't wait! Enjoy your holiday weekend!

  7. LOVE your deck! This was one of the best things we've done since moving into our house and I love it so much!

  8. Love the deck! The railing is so nice! Yes, teacher's schedules are awesome! I'm going to be sad when my husband no longer has one! At least I still have that schedule!

  9. I'm so glad you're going our for black Friday! Makes me feel less crazy for going :)

  10. I love Friends! There aren't many shows I've considered buying on DVD, but I would love to own every season of Friends. I could watch it over and over! Might just have to put that on Christmas list :)

  11. Recently, I was opening a can of cinnamon rolls, and they popped right in my face. It hurt my eyes, and I had cinnamon all over my face. I wasn't holding them anywhere near my face but they were explosive. It scared the daylights out of me.
