Thoughts On Thursday

It's been a while since I've done a good ol' mish-mash of things going on in our life here, and I enjoy writing these sort of mundane but fun posts!

First things first ... I lost one of my rings on Monday. Sad face. I have a beautiful gold ring with rubies and diamonds set in it. I wear it daily. Every day I have the same routine -- shower, get ready for the day, put rings on, take them off before washing face at night. The other night I went to take it off and realized it was already missing. Who knows at what point it disappeared? My fingers have become a little bonier due to weight lost with nursing Charlotte combined with the chillier weather. Could it have slipped off as I was dumping toddler meal remnants in the trash? Could it be wrapped up in one of Char's diapers in the smelly diaper genie? Could it be outdoors in the grass, under a piece of furniture, in a parking lot, who knows? This morning Ian said "we will get you a new one." And while that is sweet (and it's not like it was an heirloom vintage piece or anything), it just feels wasteful to go out and buy a new ring when I had a perfectly good one.

How I stopped being a craft hoarder: http://www.jenniferppriest.com/how-i-stopped-being-a-craft-hoarder/:
yeah yeah yeah. I KNOW

Next up ... we are about to pull the trigger on getting the skinny metal blinds out of our home and replaced with 2" faux wood blinds with nice crown mounts (and a little splurge on plantation shutters for the kitchen bay windows and above the sink). It's not the cheapest endeavor, but it's adding value in the home and one more step to making it feel like "ours."

Who's watching Westworld on HBO? We are hooked. We are saving this past Sunday's ep to watch together on Friday night. Hopefully over a huge cheesy pizza to plump my fingers up.

I am going to get my oil changed today.
I am GOING to GET my OIL changed TODAY.
Putting that out there in the universe so it happens.

And, I'm getting so excited about Halloween! Our first Halloween of really feeling like Camille "gets it." She and I have been practicing Trick or Treating. Literally. I go inside the pantry and she knocks on the door and I open it up and pretend to give her candy, making sure she says "trick or treat!" AND, of course, a big "thank youuuuu"!

Any guesses on what she's going to be for Halloween? Get it right and I'll send you ... something!

Okay, see you all back here for FIVE ON FRIDAY tomorrow!

  4. What is it about an oil change?? It literally stays on my to do list for like 3 weeks -- I hate going! Also, totally with ya on the blinds/shutters. So pricey but really so worth it and it makes a huge difference!!

  5. I hope that your ring turns up somewhere! Things like that usually show back up when you've given up all hope to find them again :)

  6. I. LOVE. WESTWORLD. It gets better with every episode. I'm also listening to "Decoding Westworld", a podcast done by two writers who also do a Game Of Thrones recap (it's a woman who writes for Vanity Fair and a man who..I think is also a writer?) Really fun hearing fan theories and different details people have picked up on.

    And what a bummer about your ring! My engagement ring band is a half size larger than my wedding band and I had to switch them the other day since my office was SO cold and the engagement ring kept slipping off!!!

  7. I'm going with Elsa or Anna from Frozen!

  8. Oh I hope you find your ring! I'll say the St. Anthony prayer for you. And of course I have to guess that Camille will be Elsa and Charlotte as sidekick Olaf :)

  9. So sorry about your ring! 🙁 I hate paying to replace stuff, especially when you work so hard to be organized and have no idea where it could even be. I lost a bunch of my favorite clothes a few years back (like 15 shirts and sweaters) when I was switching out my closet for the season. I was so mad I had to replace them. I found them last week in a box under my husband's old college soccer shirts. We were finally cleaning out our old boxes after our move and I made him go through it. Hopefully it will turn up soon, check your vacuum and dust pan! I'm guessing Minnie for Camille.

  10. Oh Westworld - I'm hooked. It took me an episode or two, but I'm locked in now! Love that MHM1314 suggested that podcast; I'll definitely have to check it out.

    I'll guess Camille is going as Belle from Beauty & the Beast.

  11. We're loving Westworld too! I can't figure out "where it's going" and it's driving me nuts. Kuddos HBO. Oil change out there in the universe for me this weekend :)

  12. I thought I had recently lost a favorite ring as well and hate that feeling of your hand being naked! I hope it turns up soon. My guess is a puppy because every kid I know LOVES that snapchat filter :)

  13. Bummer on the ring and I hope you find it soon! I think she's going as Sophia the First! That's what my Charlotte is going as. She literally wears her "Sophia dress" every single day!!

  14. We finally ditched the awful metal blinds and I love it! We just got our last 2 in the mail the week for our front windows and I can't wait to get them up!

  16. So sorry about your ring! I'm guessing Minnie Mouse for Camille...just because that's what my 2 year old is going to be ;)

  17. I loved when M finally got Halloween! Made it so much more fun for both of us!

    Sorry about your ring. I'd be so upset too, even if it wasn't an heirloom or something that had been passed down. Here's to thinking happy thoughts that it'll show up soon!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You sound like my husband talking to me... "you are going to get your oil changed TODAY, you are GOING to get your oil changed today!!!" UGH! Can't wait to hear what Camille is going to be :)

  19. First of all, sorry about your ring, that sucks. :(

    Secondly, my hubby wants me to pickup Westworld but I just have not & really the whole Western theme thing turns me off. I don't like Westerns.

  20. I hope your ring turns up. Sometimes they are where you least expect them to be. I'm due for an oil change, too. I always go to that Take 5 place on South by Dunkin' Donuts. It is $10 more but it takes less than 15 minutes and you don't even have to get out of the car.

  21. Oh my gosh, practicing trick or treating? That's the cutest thing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I hate getting my oil changed too! I finally found a car place I like and there is a great little neighborhood behind it. I usually take my car and then take a walk with my kids!

  23. yessss! i'm hooked on westworld too!!

  24. i am so sorry about your ring!! that makes me sad!! i never ever take mine off and i KNOW that i should... but i am scared to since it's not a habit!! i don't trust myself to keep up with them i guess! anyway, i hope it shows up for you! say a prayer!

  25. Oh my goodness, your ring! And if you like me you are probably still randomly looking because it has to be somewhere.

    I'm guessing Little Red Riding Hood or Peppa Pig

  26. oohh no!! That is no fun! but I am loving that clutter quote!

  27. Sofia the First? Our little one is either going as Sofia or a cat...just depends on which costume she decides to boycott on Monday! Haha, toddlers! And I saw on Insta that you found your ring! YAY!!! That's great news! I hate losing things!

  28. When comes Halloween it means some extra Fun some extra Pleasure. We friends like to go for Downhill Longboarding adventure as this kind of tasks help me to find out what is the main reason of being so affected and so Fun.
