Random Things Thursday

Christmas on a cracker — I am so happy it’s Thursday!!!!

This week has been all over the place. I haven’t been crazy busy, but I’m just off kilter or something. I blame it on the holiday. Don’t “short” weeks always feel longer? It doesn’t help that I’ve been struggling with a allergies. Or maybe it’s a cold? I don’t know. Whatever it is, it’s keeping me up at night and tonight I’ve hit my wall. After 3.5 hours of sleep last night (thanks to an extra special bout of insomnia) I am exhausted! Anyways, enough complaining.  Here’s  what else is going on…

1. In case you haven’t heard, there’s this little race going on here this weekend.


I’m excited to find out what a course monitor does (I’m guessing just directing runners and cheering them on). If you’re racing, look for me before you hit the Magic Kingdom in the Auto Plaza. I’ll be the one dressed like all of the other volunteers – except with that basketball I smuggled in. While I won’t be charging you to to park your car, I do accept tips.

Who’s racing and what are you wearing? I know I’ll be on the lookout for Andrea, Jeannie, Victoria, Jen, and Rachel. Anyone else?

2. I can’t stop eating these Greek Yogurt Pancakes. I might need an intervention y’all.



For the record, I have never seen my kids eat so fast. Nor have I ever felt so satisfied eating pancakes. Especially since they consist of 5 ingredients (plus coconut oil to cook in – but you could use butter/Pam too!). This recipe (changed slightly from the above link) makes 6 very thick pancakes:

  • 2 cups of greek yogurt (your choice! I go with vanilla)
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 tsps of baking soda (combine with flour before adding)
  • 2 eggs, and blueberries (probably 1/2 cup?).
  • Sometimes I add a little water to thin out the batter. Just a tiny bit.

Mix together. Make pancakes on low heat. Eat them. Love them.

3. Despite telling myself I wasn’t going to buy a stroller… I bought a stroller. A Bumbleride Indie.


I was going to get a BOB, but then Andie suggested this one (since I have no intentions to jog with it) and man did it sound RIGHT up my alley. I knew they were $$$, but did I search anyway and found one for a great deal. I couldn’t pass up the offer (and I know it has great resell value). I figured I can even test it out with L before May (helllooo upcoming Little League games!) because she is not even close to weighing 45 lbs. I’ll do a full review in the near future :)

4. I love that he loves to read.


It’s been very hit or miss with B lately and I definitely have been feeling like a bit of a parent failure. Until I saw this today. I guess we’re doing something right. Even if it’s fleeting! I’m definitely savoring these moments.

5. I got my haircut on Tuesday!!! I love my stylist. It only took her an hour and a half total to highlight (3 colors!), cute, AND style my hair.







6. My tongue hurts.


Damn chicks, ducks, and bunnies.

So what’s going on in your world? What’s the last big deal that you scored? Favorite candy?

      I LOOOOVED those growing up. Too bad I can’t eat much chocolate now (I know super lame). And completely off topic – but I still have not gotten your shirt in the mail. I swear I plan on sending it to you. Hopefully this weekend!!

      What kind of stroller did you use with your girls? I love that you call yourself a stroller hoarder. Hopefully you sold them and they still aren’t in your garage :) This is the first time I’m getting a “fancy” stroller. I guess that’s the perk of spacing out the kiddos. I had a Peg Perego P3 with B, a Joovy Ultralight with L, and now this one.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!!

      I really have to put myself on restriction when I eat them. Lol! Thankfully, I have mutiple friends who also love them so they help me. If not for them, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have taste buds and instead have lots of cavities.

      Target and Old Navy have the best dress selection for maternity (in my opinion). I prefer the ones that are a little tighter on the body — mainly because I know I can wear them the whole time. I have a few “flowy” dresses (mostly from Motherhood Maternity) that are now out because I feel like there’s a lotta breeze going on up under there.

      I got the dress in this post from Target for $9 (!!) (and another blue one also for $9). STALK their clearance section. Especially now that they are putting out their spring/summer stuff. Also with Old Navy – I find their maternity runs REALLY big. So if you order online, go a little smaller than you normally would.

      Oh and since you’re tall like me — Motherhood Maternity’s tall IS actually tall. Their inseam is 34-35. It’s amazing to wear maternity jeans that fit (in previous pregnancies this did not happen).

      You WILL need maternity clothes very soon :)
