Thursday Thoughts

Here's the 411 on all things me lately...

I have a new TV addiction... Dinner at Tiffani's.  I'm not super big on cooking shows, but this one is fun!   And really, how can you not like a show starring Kelly Kapowski (aka Tiffani Thiessan for those of you too young to remember Saved By the Bell)?!  Check it out on Cooking Channel.

I'm feeling very emotional lately.  I just got the invitation to Nick's Kindergarten Celebration (our school does a Celebration rather than a Graduation).  How is my baby almost done with kindergarten already? How did he become an almost 1st grader? Time is going WAY too fast, and I need to slow it down!

I want a pool.  Like REALLY want a pool. Our old house had a pool and I have literally been having dreams that we moved back there so I could have my pool back.  No joke.  Unfortunately, we will not be getting a pool any time in the near future. We are only allowed to have inground pools in our development, and since our backyard is basically a giant hill, it would be crazy expensive to put one in (think gigantic retaining wall). So my plan for the summer is to take many weekend trips to my parent's house to use their pool!

I'm doing Weight Watchers.  Time to shed some pounds!   Do you have any awesome WW recipes to share with me??  I am always on the hunt!

I love Spring!  May brings the prettiest greens and pinks to NY!  It also brings the Mango black tea lemonade back to Starbucks!   #yesplease

I have been reading!  Finally finished Station Eleven, My Grandmother asked me to tell you she's sorry, and The Silent Wife.   Up next is When Breath Becomes Air and then I plan on ordering A Man Called Ove and Britt Marie Was Here (written by the same author that wrote the Grandmother book).  What are you reading?  Any recommendations?

We booked a last minute Memorial day weekend family trip.  We originally had plans to go to Hershey Park, but instead we will be headed to Maine and Boston.  More about our weekend plans coming soon!

Baseball, baseball, and more baseball.  Oh, and karate.

So that's what's up with me.
What's up with you?


  1. My MIL has a pool and it is so much easier to go over to her house and swim than have to deal with the upkeep of my own pool. Can't wait to be swimming everyday!

  2. I started WW in April and have lost a bit but have to say, I'm always hungry when using their system which isn't a good thing, you know? I'm such a monster when I'm hungry.

  3. Ahhhhh I love spring as well!!! So glad we finally have decent weather here in NY!
