Thursday Thoughts

Truth. One of my favorite quotes from Song of Solomon. What's holding you back? Let it go.

One of my favorite songs of all time is It's All Right by The Impressions. Give it a whirl. 

Every time I hear the word "affirmations," I see and hear this in my head:

I'm quenching my thirst for beauty products by paying $10 a month for a Glam Bag delivery from Ipsy. This stuff was in November's. December, bring mama something good.

Happy 15th Anniversary to my Dad & Carol today. I love you guys!

Laura and I frequently plot how we can become friends with The Bloggess and read her posts looking for things we can squeal, "That is so you/me/us!" over.

Knock Knock Motherfucker. The best blog post of all time courtesy of The Bloggess. 

I could totally wax poetic about the depth of flavor sauteed vegetables bring to a run of the mill pot of soup. I sauteed the onions, carrots and celery for this turkey noodle soup, and man alive does it just kick it up several thousand notches. Whatever happened to Emeril? Anyway, trust me. Next time you're making a pot of soup, saute your veggies if you don't already.

Whenever I hear Fleetwood Mac, I try to imagine the relationship between Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham. I mean we are talking about two people in the same band who put their entire imploding relationship on display in one of the best albums of all time: Rumours. Incidentally, while I think about this all the time, I was born the same year that album came it's not even like I was around to witness this.

Some days kick your ass and call for a simple and easy dinner. What's your go to? I'm linking up with Lora at Raising Steppe Sisters today to share my easy go-to recipe:

half a chopped onion and two minced cloves of garlic sauteed in olive oil 
Fresh or frozen broccoli steamed in the microwave
black olives, sliced
a bunch of halved grape tomatoes (or a can of diced tomatoes)
barilla plus pasta cooked al dente
all tossed together with more EVOO and freshly grated locatelli cheese
I always have all of those ingredients on hand and it's quick and relatively healthy. 
Viola...dinner is served.

Ecard of the week, repinned from Jen O. This made me laugh and laugh. And add "poop" as a label for this post.

Last night I bagged 95% of my Christmas gifts. After Wrapping Palooza this weekend, it'll be 100%. As you southerners say, pin a rose on my nose. 


  1. Um, I totally HAVE said that in a restroom before.
    My go-to, easy meals vary, but last night I took frozen rst veg raviolis, bonesless, skinless chicken breasts, and a jar of pesto, and made it fabulous.

    1. I should hang that ecard up in the bathroom here at work. Fo REALS.

  2. Very enjoyable, as always. Some day people will be talking about giving
    Stephanie Doyle's book as a holiday gift. I am really loving that $10.00 a month glam package- love little surprises, which is why I have so many junk drawers- I never know what will turn up- and I am the one that puts the stuff in there LOL! LOVE Stevie Nicks-she is a good witch!
    Beautiful, sunny day- Enjoy & Carpe diem!

    Love your proud mommmmma!

    1. Isn't that makeup thing cute? I thought you'd like it. And I'll give you whatever I don't like.

  3. I always saute the veggies for soup. Unless i don't. Then I toasty them.
    Rumours is a great album. I can't listen to it though because the songs get stick in my head. Earl-eye in the morning style.

    1. Auto spell thought I would toasty the veggies. Naturally, I would not. I would roasty them.
      It also thought songs would get stick in my head.
      I REALLY miss my wireless. Posting from my phone is becoming tedious.

  4. Auto spell thought I would toasty veggies. Naturally I would not. I would roasty them.
    It also thought I might get songs stick in my head. Again, I would not.
    I REALLY miss my wireless - posting from my phone is becoming tedious

    1. NOOOOO. Earl-eye in the morning is back! AHHHHHH.

      I haven't roasted veggies for soup. I'm going to try that next.

  5. omg that post by the blogess is my absolute all time fave!!!!!! hilarious! i want to be her bff too. thanks for linking up with me today, sounds pretty yummy! :)

  6. what a great post, especially the first part- need to hear that. and that e card. YES. maybe I have one time said that. I am not kidding. and chicken noodle soup is one of my fave foods in general.

  7. I love Stuart Smalley! How did I not know about this Ipsy Glam Bag deal? I must get on that right away!

  8. OMG that SomeECards....SO TRUE!!

  9. Sauteed veggies are awesome!!! Especially onions and celery!!! MORE CARROTSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The soup is awesome! Love You .... MFD

  10. The Moxie lipgloss from Bare Minerals KICKS ASS!!! And the SomeEcard might be one of the best I have every seen. I HATE when that happens, especially when it's at some fancy restaurant!

  11. My friend just signed up for Ipsy! I'm excited to hear about her experience - it seems like a pretty great deal!

  12. OMG that bathroom meme. I die! Story of my life.

  13. Hahaha! That ecard! I feel the same way about Fleetwood Mac! I just got tickets to see them in concert. I wonder how awkward it is for them now. Kinda like No Doubt. Gwen Stefani STILL writes songs about Tony, who broke up with her 20 years ago!
