Thursday Thoughts v.8.23.12

Linking up with Sarah for some Thursday Thoughts


Bought our kids (two cats) a new toy! They are not sure yet if they like it, but I'm betting they will eventually love it. Currently have it hidden in a corner of the living room behind a good sized plant, in view of the hummingbird feeders. We have two people and only two cats, so I don't believe we can be categorized as crazy cat people (yet).

Dropped off some clothes at the Goodwill this morning, so took my grandson inside to check out the books. He found a few, and so did I. Where else can you buy six books for under $10? Might be time to clean out my bookshelves, too.


Had a wonderful, fun time at the Mariner game the other day. It was a celebration of Felix Hernandez's perfect game, with more people in attendance than I have seen all year. 39,000 fans with 35,000 of them wearing the celebratory King Felix shirt. Woot woot!

Seeing all the school supplies in the stores makes me nostalgic for back-to-school shopping with my kids. I absolutely love the smell of new school supplies, and I'm sure I enjoyed the shopping just as much as they did. Nothing like starting the school year with a fresh supply of spiral notebooks, perfect pencils, special pens, and immaculate crayons.


I won't go into intimate detail, but I bought two new supportive undergarments and couldn't be more pleased. I really love the Wacoal brand. I'll admit, they are a little spendy, but worth every penny because they fit (and support) so well. Even better, one of the items was 50% off since the color had been discontinued (what, no more black?!?) and I also had a coupon for $10 off. All in all, a very successful shopping trip.

And how is your week going?



  1. Love the photo of you three! Dad's probably bummed he couldn't be there (especially with that tshirt)!

    Fly here and come back-to-school shopping with me!!

  2. Yes, the smell of newly sharpened pencils takes me back -- not only to my kids' school days, but also to my own. I LOVED going back that first week, when everything was new and exciting.
