Thursday's Thoughts

I'm so happy that tomorrow is payday. I really wasn't sure if I was going to make it. One can consist on fruit roll ups and dried mango slices for only so long (partially kidding, but not really)!

Here's a bunch of random thoughts I've had this week:
  • C & I don't really watch sports (other than football), but we always get obsessed with the NBA finals! Even though Dallas beat the Lakers I was really rooting for them when they played against the Miami Heat! I thought Dirk really deserved the trophy so I'm glad his team was able to pull together and take down the big 3. Plus, I'm on the "let's hate LeBron (and Bosh and Chalmers and Haslem...basically EVERYONE on Miami)" wagon so I wasn't disappointed to see him (them) lose. Another reason I was happy? I made a bet with my friend Tim from work and since he was on the losing end, he had to buy me Jamba Juice!
  • I wanted to kill Ashley on this week's episode of The Bachelorette. It was sad (in a pathetic way) to see that she couldn't move past Bentley. I feel like the producers and Chris Harrison should have intervened and let her see the footage of Bentley talking about his lack of interest in her. I know it's a "reality show" and she needs to find out things for herself, but at the same time, the longer this goes on the more idiotic she looks. I'm concerned that Bentley comes back. Why? I read an interview with Chris that said the only reason he would be back would be because Ashley asked for him to be brought back. Hello??! Don't you think that would be a good time to say, "Ashley, honey, he's just not that into you...."
  • Francesca's is doing an amazing promotion right now. Simply like them on Facebook to receive a code for 50% off a single item (use before June 30). If you take advantage of the free shipping offer until June 19, you could save a lot of money and get a great deal.
  • Last Saturday, I reached 400 miles on my bike! Actually, by the end of this weekend I should be at 500. It's amazing how much I love my bike and I can't imagine not having it. I can't believe I will reach 500 miles before 6 weeks!! Every long ride I take, I wonder if I can do it...then I do, and I feel so great!

  • I took advantage of Living Social's recent deal for 2 movie tickets for $9. So glad I did! Movies are expensive. C really wants to see Super 8, and I really want to see Green Lantern. I'm thinking I will win. I did buy the deal after all....

I believe that's all I have for today! If I'm not back tomorrow, I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

And just for laughs:

ps: pinterest is the best.

Hahaha! I have felt the same about Ashley on the Bachelorette. I would be furious if I were her and no one let me know about Bentley's rude comments! :( what a meanie! Anyhow, I love your pictures from pinterest. That website is addicting!! OH-and thank you so much for coming back to my little blog!! It's been forever, but I'm so glad to have some time to be back in the scene!

hahhaha..."i need to eat a skinny person" makes me laugh out loud. LOVE IT. I don't watch the bachelor, but that sounds like a very sad scenario. I do hope they tell her. Yikes!

Congrats on your 400 miles!

Hey! I LOVE dried mango slices! haha (I'll watch sports on tv only if they are a few select teams (I am pretty clueless on some of what's hapening, except the end up asking "What happened?") ...haven't watched the Bachelorette... never seen White Collar, but I checked out the link you shared and I want to check it out. ...and You find the neatest deals! Thanks for sharing them with us!

And whoo hoo!...congratulations on your biking goals and successes!

Blessings & Aloha!
& thank you so much for stopping by! I love to find your comments! & Yes, the skillet bread is soo easy and quick! Sadly, I was the only one home (I had the day off), so I just "had" to eat the skillet bread while it was nice and warm! ...the illustration you shared is so fitting..."I need to eat a skinny person!" :o) Thanks for liking the Harley drawing :o)

Agreed. Ashley is either being persuaded to act this gaga over him or she's just dumb enough to get hurt by him. He even acts like a con to her face. Worm.
