Thursday Thoughts

1. I cannot wait to see Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs. It's on Lifetime next Saturday, 6/28 at 8 p.m. I'll be at Kim's wedding and you know my ass will be glued to the DVR Sunday night when I get back. Between Flowers in the Attic, Petals on the Wind, and this, Lifetime has been on point lately.
2. Happy birthday today to my Mom! You can tweet wishes to her here. More on her tomorrow for the Friday Five, stay tuned.

3. I took a quiz on Facebook that promised to tell me my age. Based on my answers, it told me I was 62, confirming what I already know: a lot of my habits and preferences are those of a senior citizen. Winning.

4. Did you ever start a book that you've heard awesome things about and you're like what, this book? Everyone is raving about this? That was The Lowland for me until page 63. Then in an instant I loved it. I thought it was beautiful writing and overall sort of devastating. Heavy for the summer but a really good read. I wiled away all of Monday night laying on the couch finishing it.

5.  This week in dinners...healthy mexican casserole. This was awesome. That's the link to my pin, and you can read my modifications on that.
6. Here's a tip for keeping your herbs fresh: store them in water in the fridge instead of letting them languish in your veggie drawer.

7. One of the many reasons I love Mindy Kaling is this snippet of truth:
8. Throwback to when my brother Stephen and I were matchy match match:

9. This month's Graze box, which I get delivered right to work for $6. Nice nice. Interested? Sign up here and use the code TKG5TGRXP. You get your first and fifth box free. I get a $1 referral fee when you sign up, which I donate to the graze school of farming.
10. E-card of the week on bathroom selfies...it has to be said:

Friday eve, Friday eve.

  4. Yay, Happy birthday to your mom!! I definitely clicked on that casserole to try and the Graze box. Congrats to making it that far in a book like that...I rarely make it far enough to see what people are talking about. Bad, I know.

  6. My boss just started getting graze boxes and she gave me those cashews. They were good but I didn't love the red-skinned peanuts. She's a huge fan. Love Mindy Kaling, Happy bday to SMD's mama, and I am so happy you alerted me to this Warren Jeffs movie because all things cults/communes/crazy are my favorite.

  7. I am pumped for Flowers in the Attic! I loved that book as a kid

  8. I'm totally DVRing that Lifetime movie. There is also one the same night on Hallmark worth DVRing... just FYI if you like bad made for TV movies :)

  9. Happy Birthday to your mom! I have not heard of Lowlands or Graze. I'm learning about all kinds of new things today :)

  10. I didn't take that FB quiz because I knew it would tell me I am old at heart.

    I love your matchy matchy throw back, my mom use to make my sister and I match too.

    I avoid bathroom selfies as a rule, especially since you can see the toilet in the mirror behind me no matter what I do.

  11. We don't have cable but I have heard about that Warren Jeffs movie and I wish I did for that. I may have to park it at my parents house to watch it, or hopefully stream it somewhere online.

    Stopping by from Kristen's Stuff n things!

  12. I am straight up fascinated by the whole Warren Jeffs thing. I am so glad you mentioned this cause I had no idea. And how were those Flowers in the Attic movies??? I remember not being able to put those books down when I was a tween!!! And that e-card should be required reading for anyone doing online dating!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love the e-card, and I am cracking up bc Brie had that exact same shirt you are wearing in the throwback of you and Stephen. Clearly our moms knew style when they saw it. FB quiz told me I was 34, and I was sad it added 2 extra years. Boo

  14. Bathroom selfies are wrong, wrong, wrong.

    My mom and I used to match me and my middle sister. Sigh.

    I was 42. I was surprised I wasn't older.

    Happy birthday to your mom!!!

  15. I do like Mindy Kaling. Also, Tina Fey. They have a lot of good things to say about life in general.
    That Mexican casserole is looking good for dinner tonight!

  18. Happy birthday, mom!!!!

    Do you like the snacks in graze box? I heard they are healthier snacks, which I need!!! Also, if you like them...are they items you can find in stores to get more?

    Mexican anything....mmmmmmm

  19. I love the matching! You guys are too cute. And Mindy Kaling is right on! It's like being busy, we do it to ourselves without realizing it, and then we all complain about it even though everyone's in the same boat.

  20. That picture of you and your brother- so awesome!! There are definitely pictures of my brother and I floating around where my parents tried to dress us all alike. Talk about awkward family photos!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those outfits look like Bert and Ernie, I'm dying! haha I bet the facebook quiz asked if you play bingo and audibly judge youngins on the train. No shame in that!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those matching outfits are amazing. Also, I'm terrified of that damn quiz.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have some cilantro in the fridge...I need to put it in water!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I took that quiz too, and then I asked my husband to guess what age I got. He guessed 30. LOL, not even close. I got 54. I'm 26 but I'm so not hip, I wasn't at all surprised by that!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just got through reading Mindy Kaling's book and LOVED that passage. So true.

    How did I not know about this Warren Jeffs movie?! I will be DVRing for sure. Thanks for the heads up!
