**random thoughts for a wednesday**

i have recently discovered that keebler has created a year round samoa - coconut dreams
this is bad news!
when Justin nods his head and says
"I wish you wouldn't have bought these again"
its kinda hard to resist
we will be lucky if this package of 15 cookies make it through the weekend

i wish it can be the 5 weeks between thanksgiving and xmas all year round - it is undoubtedly my favorite time of the year
and this is why:

christmas carols
holiday parties
christmas cookies
decorating for the holidays
holiday shopping
wrapping presents

only 148 days left until christmas

i'm ready for a smart phone again... although i don't mind rocking out the flip phone... the inability to get picture mail is about to make me break down and buy the black iphone.. i have missed friends texts and they think i'm mad at them...and then i have to tell them the pathetic story about how i ruined my smart phone and i'm back to the old school flip phone

i'm thinking about finally starting an etsy site to sell the headbands that i make
and i'm really excited about it!
as soon as i get it up and running i'm thinking about celebrating in true blogging fashion
by having my FIRST give-a-way!!

i'm starting to have a love/hate relationship with big brother... 3 days a week is a bit excessive, but its still addictive - i have it scheduled to tape on the dvr - so it means i HAVE to watch it.... however the suspense of wondering who the 2 cast mates who know one another is killing me... who do you think it is?

Christmas is around the corner? Oh my!

Omigod, thanks for warning me AGAINST those cookies!! Samoas are my FAVE, yum!!! Same with us-- cookies last pretty much 1.3 days in our home ;-)

Okay, so I'm no the only one who has been dreaming of fall/winter this summer?? I mean come on!! I deserve this beautiful summer, yet all I can think about it jeans, and sweaters, and pumpkins, and carols, and presents-- it's horrible!! ;-)

Happy Wednesday, Lindsey!!

oh my gosh i saw those cookies the other day and it took all of my willpower to keep walking....

Annie said...

i wish i never would've seen this post with those cookies!! how will i ever pass them up at the store now? i won't ;)
i LOVE thanksgiving/christmas time!! although i hate the months that follow that totally drag through winter :| so i'll just keep on enjoying summer ;)
how exciting that you are going to be opening an etsy store!!! and a giveaway, woo hoo!
i gave up on BB after week one, i can't do 3 nights a week...it is too much for me!
well, happy wednesday girly!!

I love that you have a countdown. I too can't wait for Thanksgiving/Christmas time!

Amber said...

Oh I really wish you hadn't told me about those cookies...it's going to take all the willpower I have to walk past them at the grocery store now!

That is my favorite time of the year too. The shopping, the decorations, time with family. Ugh - I get so sad when the New Year rolls around each year! Let the countdown begin!

Don't hate on the flip phone!! Haha!

Can't wait to see your headbands! Love a cute headband- it really can boost and outfit! :)

Happy HUMP Day! And by hump, I don't mean wild monkey humping like the noise that was heard in 8L!

Christina said...

My husband always makes fun of me b/c I am constantly saying, I can't wait for Christmas season!!
I'm right there with you girl!

Cant wait to see what you have up your sleeve in the Etsy shop!

Kelsey Claire said...

Why did you have to tell me about these cookies? WHY? I am going to have to go buy them now! Samoas are Gods gift to the cookie!

Jenny said...

I'm excited to see your etsy site! As for BB, I can totally relate, I'm so far behind on a few other shows I watch because I constantly am watching BB. I swear Kathy & Britney are related because they look alike & are both from the south, I'm very curious to find out too though.

Those are seriously my FAVORITE five weeks of the year!! Ahh I love it!

Brittany said...

You're funny :) I love that time of year too but there's just something about laying in a chair by the pool or beach that makes me SO happy! It's tough to decide which I like better ;)

I hope you get a new phone soon!

I'm a Big Brother watcher and I think Annie (the sab) just said that to through people off. I really don't think anyone is related or lifelong friends. If you don't get the live feeds (I don't) Check out this website - it lets you in on EVERYTHING going on..

Laura said...

Oh man, I was just thinking about how it's almost fall...not Christmas! But you got me SO excited. My family and I LOVE Christmas. Such a fun holiday!!!!!

*visiting from Jenna's :)

They also make a cookie that is like the Girl Scout Thin Mints!!! Those are sooo dangerous for us and those 15 cookies NEVER make it past the weekend =) I try to stay out of that aisle all together but it is sooo dang hard!

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

I had totally forgotten about the 2 of the bb cast mates knowing each other!

Danielle Taylor said...

I love that magical time of year as well!! The summer has been so hot this year that I can't wait till cooler weather.
As far as BB I think Annie just said that about two castmates knowing each other to create a panic in the house. I love that show but can not stand Rachel!! How many times is she going to say "nothing is going to come in between me and my man"!
