Thursday Thoughts

I'm linking up with Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts.

I finally decorated the house for Christmas and put up a toddler friendly tree. It's a felt tree, with felt ornaments that stick to it, that my daughter can rearrange as she likes. And the presents will still go under the tree on the floor. I'm happy with it and it was an easy project to make! Now I just have to start wrapping presents...

I finally found a sippy cup for my daughter that she likes and it doesn't leak. I couldn't be happier. My daughter always finds a way to spill the "leak proof" cups. I have been unsuccessful (until now) in finding one she couldn't figure out. And the ones you need to bite to get the liquid out just didn't work for her. She'd get frustrated trying to drink out of them. So the winning sippy cup (in our house) is the Nuk Active Cup. It's cute, doesn't have extra inside pieces, isn't too round and difficult to hold (it's slightly larger than a bottle), and best of all doesn't leak!!! I'm in love!!!

I'm hoping a few of my subscription boxes that are in transit show up this week. I really want to see the Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Holiday for Him box. (I'm going to open it to check it out, even though it's a gift) And I'm excited to see my Birchbox this month. I peeked at what I'd be getting and I'm excited to try everything out, especially the Honest Co Hand Cream. I was hoping I'd get it when I watched the spoiler video!

Oh, and one more thing. I'm still spoiler free for the Popsugar Must Have Neiman Marcus box. I can't believe I've made it this far, so I'm sure I'll make it to Christmas now! I'd disappoint myself if I peeked. And because of that I'm so excited for Christmas this year. I can't wait to see what is in that box!!! And my daughter is going to be so much fun this year! She's going to love her Big Hugs Elmo. She doesn't talk much, but she does repetitively say Elmo whenever she sees him.

What are your Thursday Thoughts?


  1. That is so crazy impressive! I don't even know how you got so far without accidentally finding out!

  2. I need to start wrapping too. I have piles of boxes here that need to be unpacked and wrapped. I'm guessing that is a this weekend project.
