Thursday Ten – It’s Too Freakin’ Hot Edition

1. It’s nearly 90 degrees today. That’s too hot. Perfect is about 15 – 20 degrees cooler. This hot hot weather? NOT FOR ME.

2. The coolest free app for the iPhone is Shazam. If you’re driving down the road, hear a song and don’t know what it is or who sings it, you can open the Shazam app, press the “Tag Now” button and hold the phone near the music. It’ll “listen” and pretty quickly it’ll come up with the name of the song and artist. (You can also link to buy it on iTunes. Sneaky folks there, eh?). Anyway, it’s pretty cool, and this week, I’ve been tagging things like crazy while I’m in the car.

3. I love my sister’s trade discount for hair products. I got two gigantic monster bottles of Redken product today and didn’t even spend $20. We’re talking the huge liter bottles. I won’t be buying shampoo for a loooooooong time.

4. I have been on a painting frenzy. All that’s left is my dining room and kitchen. I plan to paint them during Hubby’s Saturday night poker party. I won’t be able to sleep with all those loud guys laughing in my garage! Might as well be productive.

5. My husband ordered some Mix 1 protein drinks. Full of protein and antioxidants they are about 200 calories each with 3 servings of fruit/vegetables. I had a mixed berry drink for lunch today (plus some left over cuban black beans – no, it wasn’t the best combo, but it was filling, for sure!). That was pretty tasty. I had Lime flavored last week – that was better. The Mango that Hubby and I split with dinner last night (I made waffles, I needed something redeeming nutritionally to go with the meal) was sort of gross. There’s two other flavors I haven’t tried yet, but they’re definitely worth giving a shot.

6. I’m so glad the new season of Project Runway has started!

7. New songs I’m grooving to lately: “Bartender” by Rehab, “Bittersweet” by Sick of Sarah (Yes, I bought it because of the band name, but I like it anyway), and “Where’d You Go”by Fort Minor.

8. As I type, The Princess is playing in a friend’s sprinkler and Pumpkin is passed out sleeping on the couch next to me. She fell asleep in the stroller walking home from story time today.

9. Pumpkin has figured out the potty training. She still waits til she has her bedtime diaper on every night to go #2. Annoying, yes, but I don’t want to make a big deal about it and give her issues.

10. Tomorrow, I have a day that is almost all full of fun stuff and I can’t wait to leave Hubby home with the girls while I gallivant all over the place doing things with no purpose. Yay.

  1. Project Runway started? YAY!

    About the poop in the diaper thing- my ped told me not to make a big deal if that happened with my kids. I guess kids do it a lot and if you get pissy they will start holding their poop and have bigger issues.

    FYI. 🙂

  2. She’s POTTY TRAINED!??? Hip hip Hooray!!! 🙂
