Thursday Thoughts

1. Yasso greek yogurt bars speak my hangry language.
2. Is it wrong for my first two to be food-related? I don't care. We have reached the part of the summer where my fatassery can be attributed to tomato sandwiches. They're all I want to eat.
3. My long-awaited hair appointment was Wednesday. Praise the universe. I hate the time suck that goes along with hair things but I love hanging out with Kristi and seeing the other ladies at the salon. Getting rid of six inches of hair = freedom.

4. So I've started watching Breaking Bad. I'm four episodes in on Season 1. Only eleventy billion years late.
5. Tuesday night MFD and I went to a community meeting on crime in our district. Then the lady who runs our civic association gave me her card and told me it would be nice to have young blood in the organization. Flattery will get you everywhere, ma'am.

6. Today's gratitude and a side note about the gratitude list you see on the bottom of most posts now - I just wanted you to know what day they're attached to - they're my gratitude list from the night before. If I'm still up late I add it in at night, but if I'm not I edit my post the next morning to add it in. And have you guys checked out Shannon's 21 day challenge on Brass Honey? Do it!
7. My poor Mae got 10 trash teeth removed yesterday. And the vet told us she's probably eight years old. We thought she was going to be six.

8. Shocker: the Internet is disappointed. This is why we can't have nice things. We cry about them because they're not nice enough. Me? I had no expectations so I was happy to get an extra $5-15 off of things I was buying anyway. 
9. Some things I bought were things I needed for our next vacation. They arrived last night, like you know, same day...but shame on Amazon for not delivering good enough sales! Or something. Anyway, that vacation is only 63 days away. The excitement mounts.
10. Ecard of the week:
Your thoughts on Thursday? Or life in general?

  1. Gotta love the hangry bars! My Dad loves tomato sammies, though I don't think he toasted the bread. Soon enough you'll be sucked into Breaking Bad, just go with it. ;) People were ridiculous about Prime Day. I did not buy anything because I didn't need anything specific, why can't people just be grateful for the sales. Quit complaining people.

  3. I was disappointed in Prime Day too...but I think my expectations were too high. Plus, most of the stuff I usually buy wasn't at that much of a discount anyway. :)

    Also BB, yes. I watched Season 1 and 2 and then stopped. IDK it was just too much for me and made me anxious. So I started Gossip Girl instead. HA!

  4. LOL the internet was up in arms about the prime sale. i don't have prime but ended up making my friend order me something that was $16 instead of $40 so i'm happy with that. did you see all the angry tweets about the sale? so funny.

    yellowstone! heard it's amazing. you guys camping there or ain't nobody got time fo dat?

  5. Tomato sandwiches are so good in the summer, I hate cooking but turning on our oven in the summer is like torture so I cook even less. Finding quick easy cool things to eat is important.

    I need to get my layers shaped but finding a place to get a good haircut is hard.

  6. Fatassery? Please. You don't even have any bacon in there. Love the hangry bar packaging! I feel like cheap things on Amazon often have a host of comments like, "For the price, I would have expected better quality." Uh... for $5 you expect quality? I think you're confused about the value of money.

  7. OMG why didn't I think of toasting the bread on my tomato sammiches?!?! I can't even believe me right now. I used to eat iceburg lettuce sandwiches on toasted bread with mayo/mustard.. Mmmmmm, so delicious.

    I didn't find anything on Prime that I felt like I needed to spend any money on. I was slightly disappointed, but it saved me dollas, so it worked out in the end!

    I quit watching Breaking Bad during the 4th season I think? I can't remember, but I was just so over the entire show. I think it was because of the drug thing, I stopped watching Weeds before I finished all the seasons too. I just can't get past the drug stuff I guess.

  8. Thanks for grabbing the new Stuff and Things button :)

    Yay for Breaking Bad! It's absolute genius t.v., I promise. I've watched the whole series 3 or 4 times.

    The internet is disappointed: shocking indeed.

  9. hahaha pop up of my existence! love it.
    i am shocked that the internet is disappointed. i am not shopping right now so i didn't even look for myself, but KC is building a new computer and got like $600 worth of stuff for $400, so we are not disappointed.
    i have never had a tomato sandwich - i love tomatoes! why have i not thought of this. what do you put on them? besides tomatoes, duh.
    i still haven't watched breaking bad. but i do like to wait until things are over before i watch because i'm impatient and don't like to wait lol.

  10. Yellowstone and Teton are GORGEOUS! We went four years ago and it was such a great trip.

  11. Glad you're giving Breaking Bad more of a chance. I hope it's worth it. Sweet, old(er) lady Mae... at least you know she's young in spirit. And I think Amazon set the public up for disappointment. No one is entitled to a sale, sure, but when you spend a few weeks promoting a sale better than black Friday and you have VHS tape rewinders and Flinstone vitamins on sale, the internet is going to throw a fit. Oh well, at least I didn't buy crap I don't need!

  12. The automatic pop up ad of my existence...that is brilliant.

  13. I cannot wait for Pop's tomatoes! I have fresh basil right outside my door that I will put right on those tomatoes along with sea salt and Hellmann's. It is so gorgeous today, I do not want to go inside. Carpe diem! Love, Your Momma oh and 6 inches off - really. You are a lucky duck with that hair!!!

  14. Those Greek yogurt bars sound yum! Never heard of those babies!

    How's Mae feeling? That's a whole lotta teeth she had removed!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I didn't watch Breaking Bad until it was off the air either but I really liked it. The tomato sandwiches reminded me of Harriet the Spy haha. I didn't even look at Amazon yesterday. Every time I thought about it I wasn't near my computer. It's probably for the best because I still shouldn't really be spending a ton & deals would have made it hard to say no.

  16. I'm hangry reading this! I've never watched breaking bad... what's wrong with me? I love your hair and yes, thank god for those that can do it for me.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the "gratitude for the day" daily habit because sometimes it's hard for me to remember what I've been thankful for even just a few days before.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ummm, it is never and I mean never wrong for any amount of food related photos. and now I am hangry!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the new cut! I'm sure it feels so much healthier. And poor little Mae!

    I will alsohave to check out those hangry yoghurt bars to have as a quick snack.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hahaha auto pop up ad. That is hilarious. Poor little Mae, having teeth removed is no fun. We watched a few episodes of Breaking Bad a few years ago but never picked it back up...I need to get around to that. I dont know why we quit? It wasn't that we didn't like it. I didn't really see any sales on Amazon that I had to have yesterday.

  21. overdue hair appointments are so dang good. I love them! I'm at that point right now an dit sucks because I know that now due to all the GREYS coming in. whhhhhhy.

    We just finished BB in January. We started it when it first came out but it was so depressing we didn't move forward much after that. Then EVERYONE was raving about it so I figured we should give it another shot, so glad we did. Still a depressing show lol but so, so good. Really nothing else like it.

    Mae got 10 teeth removed! Owie! Poor girl. And aw about her age.

    Love your gratitude blurbs!

  22. I started watching Breaking Bad on Netflix the day the series finale aired. A few years ago. I still haven't finished it. It was great, but I got distracted and never went back to it. I saw a lot of people up in arms about Amazon's offers and I was just like...WHY are you mad for not being coerced into spending money on things you weren't planning to buy? Some people just aren't happy unless they're complaining, ya know?
    Super amped to hear all about your next trip. Got room for one more!? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aw poor Mae! John's dog is getting that soon, he has an impacted tooth and a broken canine, and who knows what else. What's up with pug teeth? Hawkeye has no teeth issues!
    I was surprised how whiny people were over amazon. I didn't check it out, because shopping ban, but it's still deals that weren't otherwise available. Save the money and pipe down.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Definitely just saved that ecard to send it to my best friend haha! We binged watched Breaking Bad this winter, and we loved it!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That tomato sandwich looks like the perfect summer sandwich!

    Poor Mae...hope she's feeling alright!

    I was way late jumping on the Breaking Bad train too, but I really enjoyed it!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Fatassery... awesome word! :)
    I was late to the party too with Breaking Bad... its addicting though!
    I had to laugh at all the drama over Prime Day. I still never gave in to pay the yearly fee to join up - so no complaints from me :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. The hair cut looks great!!! Poor doggie going to get her teeth out. I had a shih tzu I rescued and that little fella had to have all his teeth cut out but four. It broke my heart but it made him feel so good. I have yet to watch Breaking Bad so you are ahead of me!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think my Prime Day gripe was that they built it up so much and nothing that I wanted/needed was really on sale much.

    I am with you on professionals who do things for me. I do many things well and many things horribly; I am totally ok with calling in the pros for a lot of stuff. So worth the money and my sanity

  29. Love those yasso yogurt bars! They were out of them the last time I went to the grocery store, and I was very disappointed. That tomato sandwich makes me want a BLT real bad.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I watched the first few episodes of Breaking Bad but just couldn't get into it.

    And BTW, I'm still trying to get through all 30+ posts that linked up on Tuesday!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Those tomato sandwiches look delish! And YES to Breaking Bad! I just finished the series, and all I have to say is amazing! You will love it, I promise ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm in the middle of Breaking Bad, Season 2. I'm enjoying it when my husband and I get the rare chance to watch it together, but not totally sucked into it like I was with Scandal! You know what would go really well with that tomato sandwich? Some bacon!

    1. Ah, but I can never sully the beautiful simplicity of the tomato sandwich with additions! Just toasted bread, fresh tomatoes from the farm or garden, mayo, and salt!

  33. I cut my hair on Tuesday and immediately felt 10lbs lighter. Haircuts are genius. I left my kindle on the plane coming home from Boston and lost and found never called... I was THRILLED to get my kindle for $50. I feel guilty paying full price for something I stupidly lost.

  34. I am eating at least five tomato sandwiches a week.

  35. I'm nearly done the Breaking Bad series. I have to say, it started off slow for me, I wasn't sure it was worth the hype but now that I'm only a few episodes away from the end of it, holy crap it's good.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My thoughts are typically food related! I couldn't get into Breaking Bad. Characters and plot were good, but way too dark for my taste.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Eric and I started Breaking Bad like 3 years ago, but then we got busy with other things and binge watching Netflix was something we just stopped doing for a while. Now I feel like I need to start the entire series over because I only vaguely remember certain things, but he says he just wants to jump right in where we left off. Of course this means we haven't started it up again. I remember liking it, though, so I'm planning to start it over at some point. He can join in later.

  38. How did I miss your haircut pic on IG? I blame my 1D hangover. Ha! It looks so awesome! I'm verrrry tempted to chop all mine off too! I started Breaking Bad a few days after the series finale and finished it in two weeks. I was sick so had all the time in the world and it was amazing. I didn't have expectations about Prime Day either. I ended up getting gift cards for the $10 promotion. I've already used all the gift cards.

  39. I love your gratitude's in today's post. And Steph, thank you so much for the shout out. Seriously, I could cry from happiness. You are just the sweetest most supportive person. You're going on my gratitude list today. Big hugs.
