Thursday Thoughts {Vol. 21}


It's been a looooong time since I've done one of these weekly brain dump posts! Possibly over a month... yikes! So what random things are going on with me?

I'm the proud new owner of an iPad Mini! My laptop has been getting crappier by the week, but I didn't want to purchase another one due to how infrequently I use it. So I decided to get the iPad and a wireless keyboard case. My case comes in today and I'm really excited to put it to use {and to stop lugging my laptop to work}! Any must have apps I need to get? PS- why isn't there an Instagram app available for iPad?! There was one on my Nook/Android tablet.

Speaking of the iPad I started a new book today on Allison's recommendation- Gone Girl! I usually don't follow the hype on popular books {I haven't read Fifty Shades of Grey and never will}, but Allison's review made me really curious. Especially because I loveeee crime stories! Do you guys have any book recommendations?

Thomas and I are starting P90X3 tomorrow. I'm really only doing it to make my husband happy, but I'm terrified. Thank God it's only 30 minutes/day, because I loose my workout drive right around that time. I'll let everyone know how it goes... if I don't die.

We're slowly making our way through Dexter on Netflix, currently in season 5. I love that Julia Stiles is in this season and I'm eager to find out where this storyline goes. While I'm still entertained and loving this series I'm ready to finish it and move onto another- I've been having way too many creepy dreams.

Work has been incredibly draining lately... ever since the youngest girl turned 4 {a couple weeks ago} she has become awful sassy and needs a lot of guidance/discipline. It doesn't help that we're STILL cooped up inside 90% of the time! It's getting a little warmer, between 30 and 40 degrees, but still not warm enough to spend hours outside. Spring where are youuuu?


  1. I finished Gone Girl like two weeks ago. I loved the beginning, was interested in the middle and HATED the last 1/4 of the book. It is still making me mad. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  2. Congrats on the iPad!! I still can't decide between a Mini or an Air. GAH!!!

    I hope your weather gets better son and then send some of it over here!

  3. Yay for getting an iPad! There is an app called Padgram. It's very similar to the Instagram app on the iPhone but has a few differences.

    I hate creepy dreams. I can't watch Criminal Minds at night for that very reason. LOL.

    I'm sorry to hear that work has been draining for you. I hope it gets better.

  4. man this makes me want to get caught up on dexter too! i stopped after the 4th season

  5. Suuuuper jealous that you got an iPad! I want a new tablet so bad and can't resist looking at iPads. Ugh, I haven't seen Dexter in so long, it's such a great show!
