Thursday Thoughts

1. Jared Leto is 42? He must be drinking from the same cup as Pharrel, Rob Lowe, and Usher. He doesn't age.
True story - this initially said nearly a decade because I can't add and math hurts. Thanks Melissa for setting me straight. hahaha
2. I finally got a pedicure this week. When I went in, Tee said, "Oh Stephanie, feet so bad, you wait too long." Sorry, I will tip you extra.  I never get my nails done because I prefer to do them so when I told her I needed a manicure too, she clapped her hands and asked where I was going.  I told her it was for a wedding in Mexico on Saturday. She said, "Saturday? Ok. You be careful. And don't wash hands too much." Tee, you are a nice lady just looking out for my nails, but I take public transportation and pee a lot. The frequent hand washing must continue.

3. Re: SB 1062 - Arizona, I'm ashamed and outraged that this bill exists. Discrimination based in religion is not okay. The last time I checked, The Bible said adultery was wrong too. Will anyone be discriminating against adulterers, or just gays? Hmm, that's what I thought. If someone is minding their own business and not doing any harm, why would you refuse them service based on what they appear to be? Why would you support a bill that allows businesses to refuse service based on how someone looks? Haven't we been there/done that in this country with the civil rights movement? We said that wasn't okay. Why is this any different? How about we all just be human beings and treat each other with kindness and decency? I'm pretty sure all gods would support that. For a better in depth blog on this, see Gwen's post yesterday.
4. I try to never duplicate blog/Instagram, but this is too good not to share in both spots. My travelista friend Mimi sent me screw on test tubes to carry beauty aids in on my trip. Fucking revolutionary, man. She's traveled all over the world and when I get back from Mexico I'm setting her up with a travel blog so she can share her tips and stories with the world wide web. When I was all done transferring my potions, they take up less than a half of a quart sized bag and there's no squeezing shit in and praying.
5. I've had the worst sleep all week. I think that's why I've been extra mean. Or extra honest. Whatever.
6. I haven't had a second to watch TV this week. Downton season finale, return of The Americans, beloved other shows, wait for me. I'm behind on True Detective and The Following. I'll spend time with you all next week and let my errands go and my house get dirty around me.

7. Have you guys heard of Graze? It's $6 a month and you get healthy snacks delivered to you. I have them delivered to work and when I don't like something I get, I go online and say never send this to me again. I like it so far. If you use this code, you'll get your first graze box for free. If you stick around longer you also get your fifth free. You can cancel online at any time, even after the free one. So go and get at least one free delivery using TKG5TGRXP at www.graze.com Every time someone signs up, I get $1 off or to donate to Graze Farming. My bucks are going to farming. Sign up friends!
8. Spanx advertising cracks me up. I personally will do nothing in my Spanx except smooth my fat. I went for the full body jobby. One needs these things when one's winter body is thrust into warm weather on the last day of February and one has yet to put down the donuts and back away from the winter food smorgasbord.
9. I always start photo a days on Instagram and shit out by day 11. Today I am one tiny day away from actually doing this shit for the entire month of February with #fmsphotoaday. I'm prouder than I should be of that. I'm attempting to continue my victory streak with the Northeast Bloggers Photo a Day in March. Join in and use the hashtag #neblogmarchphoto. You don't need a blog or to be in the northeast to play along and follow the prompts.
10. Ecard of the week, because a weekend amongst friends surely means poop talk. At least in my circles.
Tomorrow - love, red, weddings, Friday.

  1. OMG the SECOND it gets warm here, i'm booking my ass to get a pedicure because my feet are HIDEOUS.
    i heard about that potential bill passing in AZ.. all i thought was WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?? i can't believe that shit would even happen IN THIS DECADE. another reason why i love canada; unless you're trying to take the gold medal in hockey from us, you do whatever and whomever you want and no one will bother you.

    SHAME ON YOU PERSON WHO IS TRYING TO GET THAT BILL PASSED (i'm too lazy to go up to look at her name again. besides, that piece of trash isn't worth my effort to remember her name).

    thanks for linking up!

  2. Interesting that all the ageless are men. Argh. Or maybe they've had botox. Graze sounds good -- that's a lot cheaper than Naturebox. Do you feel like you get a lot for $6? Your nails look excellent! I'm pretty sure if I tried to get a pedicure right now, they would laugh me right out of their shop -- those aren't toes, those are hooves! Have fun in Mexico!!! (Even if you must wedge yourself into Spanx.)

  3. Oh gosh my feet are so awful right now!! I really need some kind of pedicure immediately! Have so much fun in Mexico!!!

  4. So much to comment on in this post! Jared Leto is not 42. I don't believe it. I want to know the secret. You don't want to even know the last time I got a pedicure. #3- wow. And I agree- you said it perfectly. I need to check into graze and I need some more heavy duty spanx.

  5. The men exfoliate(shave)almost daily and/or they are blessed with the olive skin like Pop. Sugar is poison & addicting.
    Carbs turn into sugar. The only way to get away from it is to detox and cut out sugar. #justcan'tdoit Sugar causes wrinkles, arthritis, ugh. As you age the effects of all the bad shit you have eaten, done or not done(like exercise regulary) become blatantly obvious. Exercise is the ticket then. And this Polar Vortex is in cahoots with sugar.
    Safe travels and extra lights and angels to you, Mike Doyle, and your people on your Mexico trip. Godspeed.
    Love your MOMMA

  6. I am going to try this IG challenge, I usually suck at them but hey at least I can say I tried.

  7. How has he not aged?!!! I so need a pedicure, my feet are bad. Love the color you picked. Arizona should be ashamed. This is 2014 people!! The test tube idea is brilliant!! That Spanx ad is hilarious, because I would totally cook in my Spanx *sarcasm*.

  8. I just signed up for graze - this sounds awesome! Thanks! and Jared Leto is amazing.

  9. Congrats on just about making it through February! I never make it through the photo a day, though I try.

    I cannot believe Jared Leto is 42. I just can't.

  10. Ooh, I am perusing this Graze site now. This might be happening.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Those test tubes are freakin' genius for traveling!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have heard of graze before but forgot about them. Aren't their boxes "healthy food." I may need to look in to that...I could always use more healthy in my life.

    I am pretty sure I would scare your girl Tee away with my hideous winter feet. They are just awful and I am going to have to do something with them.

    Spanx. I need some.

    Are they really your friend if you don't discuss poop? I think not....

    ReplyDelete
  13. I seriously choked on my drink when I heard about AZ - I mean really? This is not 1900. I NEED those tubes in my life for things like this stupid one night trip to Chicago. I have graze and like it, but I can't say I love it. I haven't gotten many things I love yet. And I'm doing the photo a day thing. I swear. Well I'm going to try. Have a safe trip and HAVE FUN.

  14. I'm jealous of Jared Leto's hair. I need a pedicure in the worst way. I think I'll do that this weekend! I had A LOT to say about Arizona. I'm so thankful the bill was vetoed. And then Texas pt the cherry on top! Good day yesterday for all of us who want equality. Those test tubes look awesome. Where can you buy them? Are they glass or plastic? I've had so many plastic bottles explode in my little baggie. I always feel so proud after finishing a photo a day challenge. You should too!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hard to believe in this day and age that that bill could even be mentioned...

    ReplyDelete
  16. BOOM! Signed up for GRAZE! So excited for my box to come! Thanks for the info and the code!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The test tubes are genius! And you should do the gel manicure on your fingers- it lasts me three weeks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I need a pedicure horribly...and am embarrassed to go for that exact reason!! I've been sleeping plenty this week- but I think the stress is building up because I do not feel like I've been a joy to be around! My bad.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Is it just me or does Jared Leto have ombre hair?? Y'know what? Doesn't matter, he's still hot.
    I've missed the last couple episodes of The Following, too. We're gonna catch up this weekend... I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ha my pedicure lady says the same thing. So does my hairdresser! Whoops. I just don't have time for those silly things, I'm too impatient to just sit around, it's so boring.
    Seriously Jared Leto wtf! He hasn't aged a day since My So-Called Life.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm glad I don't have a regular pedicure lady or else she would say the same thing! Good job on the photo a day. The longest I have ever gone is two so even 11 looks pretty good from here...

    ReplyDelete
  22. There are way too many amazing things on here....first that Spanxx advertising is amazing. I need my toes done....still holding out....but they are getting out of control! Why have I never thought of doing that with test tubes??? Jared Leto is so beautiful....he's 42 what???? That means I must be aging too.....FML

    ReplyDelete
  23. I saw Dallas Buyers Club yesterday. Jared Leto is fantastic and yeah, I can't believe he's 42!

    I used the test tubes for my trip, too. Genius. I'm also way behind on TV now. I felt all superior during the Olympics because of course there weren't many new shows to watch. Now that superiority has gone down the toilet.

    Thanks for the shout out!

  24. We have a nail place downstairs but I refuse to go because I'm always afraid they are all going to judge me. UGH. Also, I'm super jealous you are going somewhere warm.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My feet look awful right now. They are pretty dry thanks to the cold weather. I'd scare someone if I tried to get a pedicure now.

    I haven't seen the latest Downton Abbey. I need to. Maybe this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  26. "we're not mean, we just tell the truth and the truth hurts" love it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So much to comment on here today. First, have a blast in Mexico! You're escaping the freezing cold winter for paraside, enjoy every second of it and have a double margarita for me. Killer color on your toes. I usually go with orangey reds, pairs well with my very pale skin. JL looks like a fucking baby, what is he using on his skin that I'm not. Love the test tube idea for beauty products. You're a good friend Steph, if I had a friend with genius travel tips, I wouldn't hook her up with her own blog. I'd make her confess all of her brilliant ideas and then use them on my blog as a feature. XO

  28. I love Jared Leto! And 42, or not, if he came my way my husband would be in trouble! Pedicures, ha....I haven't had one of those since September 2011! Oy, probably won't happen again. And I think I will look into the graze box!

    ReplyDelete
  29. #1 Should include LLCoolJ!
    #3 I can't even believe that happened....or maybe I can ugh

    ReplyDelete
  30. "red" plus "weddings" equals The Red Wedding. It's still not okay to talk about The Red Wedding (Do you watch Game of Thrones?)
    I've been watching The Following in real time. I'm liking season 2.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Those travel test tubes are BRILLIANT! And yes about everything else posted here (lovedy love my Spanx, even if I have to fully undress to pee, when I wear them). 10 bucks says Leto is going to hit 60, and transition overnight into the Crypt Keeper. That kind of Tuck Everlasting eternal youth *must* have a downside!
    (and thank you, on behalf of the folks with compromised immune systems, for putting everyone's health above a nice manicure!)

    ReplyDelete
  32. 42?!?!? His hair is glorious and I need to know his haircare routine so mine can be that shiny.

    Are you watching TV again yet? WE HAVE SO MUCH TO DISCUSS COME HOME.
