It's Thursday. And it's random.

1.  Kroger has the most amazing new ice cream called Maine Blueberry Pie.  I am obsessed

2.  Also, why do I want to drink a big glass of water after I eat a bowl of ice cream?

3.  Someday, I'd like to have a conversation with Dwight Schrute from The Office.  Also, Snooki.

4.  Speaking of Snooki, who's {fist} pumped for Jersey Shore tonight?!  I'm beatin' the beat right now.

5.  I almost bought 1080 neon colored Post-Its from Target tonight because they were on sale for 50% off.  Then, I put them back after remembering I'm a school teacher and that the supply closet at school stocks perfectly boring yellow ones for free.

6.  I did buy a new comforter set.  Also on sale for a drastic $27, marked down from over $100.  Becks colored with Sharpie on our current Ikea duvet.  Maybe I'll show it to you when I have my life put back together.  {Just told B to check it out - he just got home from class - and it took him well over a minute to respond to it.  I'm going to take that he doesn't like it.  Men. }

7.  Because I have very little control over the tidiness of my home right now, I have become crazy obsessed with the orderliness of my classroom.  My type-A personality needed an outlet, and my filing cabinets are looking much more filing-ish these days as a result.  As opposed to overloaded with random papers and crammed with non-filing related items.  Such as plastic jack-o-lanterns.

8.  I got an early Valentine today.  It's from Lisa Leonard Designs and I love, love, love it  <3

9.  Do you drive a Honda Accord or Civic?  What are your thoughts?

10.  Beckham has been wearing "big boy" undies over his diaper for the past week.  I love that kid.

Hahaha...I just bought that pack of post its last night!! Sadly, my new school doesn't have a supply closet :(

Amy @ SweetExpectations8 said...

I wish my school had a supply closet! So jealous..

I love Jersey Shore - but thankfully it is being DVR'd... so tomorrow afternoon I have plans with the couch and TV!

Was your comforter from Target too? What a steal (men don't know anything!)

Have a great evening.

Tess said...

I have a civic (2008). Great mileage! Not good in snow or ice though (because it's so little and low). I like it!

PS - you can never go wrong with fun post its!

Shannon said...

My glass of water after ice cream must be tap...and not too cold. It's gotta warm up the insides. You must shows pics of your comforter and valentine stat. Oh and we are thinking of buying a Civic. But I gotta go...it's t-shirt tiiiiiiiime!

Abby-I literally about wet my pants as a result of laughter from random thought #7!!!!! D-Y-I-N-G over here! My filing drawer currently contains a stuffed monkey from "Caps for Sale," and some Kashi (both smashed in front of some files that I haven't seen since I started in '03.)

Drive a Honda Accord (2008 I think). Love it--I'm the little school teacher in a white Accord. Great mileage and roomy enough inside.

I, too, have a passion for fun colors of post-its. I almost bought a 12 pack of fun color Pilot gel pins on discount at Target for $8. That was a real bargain.

Lea Liz said...

I always want a big glass of water after I eat ice cream too!!!!

Nat said...

I have a civic it's almost 7 years old and I just reached 100,000 miles and she still runs great!! I get amazing gas mileage, I commute 40 mins to and from work and still only fill up the tank once a week. I used to want a bigger car but now that gas prices are slowly creeping up I'm loving my civic again. It is a little small though if you have to fit more than 2 adults.

Also I thought of you when I heard this as an educator and a Jersey Shore lover! My sister is teaching 6th grade sex ed and she had a student raise her hand and tell her she didn't need sex ed b/c she watches Jersey Shore. When my sister asked her what JS had taught her she said "I learned you have to change the sheets in the smoosh room before you use it"
There aren't even words. My sister was dying... how do you even respond to that!! Sorry for the long comment hope all is well!

Sarah said...

I drive a Honda Accord....love it! I have had only Honda Accords and they have all been awesome! So jealous you got something from Lisa...I have been drooling over her stuff for months now! Ice cream makes me thirsty for water too!

A Wedding Story said...

I drove a Honda Civic for years and I never had one.single.problem. Maybe a flat tire at one point but no inner/mechanical problems. I drove it for about 7 or 8 years...my dad drives it now b/c he is obsessed with spending $0 on cars...or gas!

LOVE YOUR RANDOMS!

1. I have the same impulses about office supplies, and I'm a teacher too (and then I have the same conversation with myself about the supply room!). 2. I haven't watched my DVR'ed Jersey Shore yet but I sure plan to, and 3. I drive a Civic and I like it a lot cause Hondas are so low-maintenance/reliable. Happy ALMOST Friday!

Even though the yellow Post Its are free at school, I always buy the fun neon ones. It's an obsession. Actually hubs got me a costco pack of Neon Bright ones for Christmas. Gotta love a husband who does that!

We have a 2006 Honda Civic. LOVE IT! My husband drives it to work (35 minute commute/28 miles) and gets great gas mileage. It's only downfall is that it is not big enough for our family of soon to be four! Would love to 'upgrade' the Civic for the Accord.

We also bought a Honda Pilot this summer. LOVE that as well! I was teaching at a school (10 minutes/8 miles) away and we didn't have to have to worry about gas mileage. I've been home since the New Year with our daughter waiting on the new baby. I do love the Pilot, but it still isn't big enough. Our two carseats take up the middle bench which doesn't allow for access to the third row. Great trunk space for strollers, groceries, etc.

I never wanted to me a "soccer mom," but am interested in the Honda Odyssey.

Allison said...

I just bought my(2008) Honda accord in November and I love it! I got really lucky because it's used but it still looks brand new and has low mileage!
And I love me some fun post-it's! I have a wild assortment in my desk drawer.

Katie said...

I am so with you on the water after ice cream...and I don't get it either!

AbbyS. said...

1.Frist of all you have a closet of REE post-its at school? NO WAY.
2. My momma got me a LL necklace for Mother's Day. LOVE IT.
3. Every car I have ever had until now has been a Honda. I have driven 3 Accords and 1 Civic. LOVE me some Hondas!
4. Yay Becks- That is a start! ;)

My boyfriend drives an Accord & it's wonderful. I will probably buy one once I've saved up the money. His is a 2001, and it hasn't had any major problems ever, that I know of.

and Then There Were Three...... said...

I love Lisa Leonard!!! My Mr. go tme the Family Tree for Christmas, What did you get?

Jamie said...

I totally need to go clean out my filing cabinet too!

I drive a 2000 Honda Accord and LOVE it! Honda's are such reliable cars with great gas mileage :)

Hope you've had a great Friday!

Mommy Webb said...

Dwight is one of the best television characters of all time. Hands down. And I drive a 2001 Accord and it has great gas mileage, although we have had some recent troubles with something that I am too ignorant about cars to understand:). XO

Shea said...

I have an 05 Accord and LOVE IT! The only problems that poor car has had is me mowing down junk in the middle of the highway. Oh, and I have put a crazy amount of miles on my car. And, she still runs like a champ!

Sara said...

#9--I drove an Accord for years. Hands down my favorite car.

Someone once told me that if you are craving ice cream, you really are thirsty and to drink water instead of eating ice cream and the craving will go away! It totally works.

Carolyn said...

I discovered the Maine blueberry ice cream from Kroger's too. The best ever!
