Thoughts on Thursday {Random Style}

This happens to me at work at least once a week. Depending on which co-worker it is, I'll let them it ain't me. We're close like that.

I'm in a recipe rut and have made tacos, spaghetti, and sandwiches for dinner the last 2 weeks. I've pinned a lot of recipes, but am completely un-motivated to make them, especially after a full day of work. Do any of you have some new crockpot recipes that I need to try? Help a girl out!

Lisa posted 5 ways to Dress-up Your Christmas Cards and I wan't to try every one of them! How cute are these new stamps from the USPS?

I sometimes have FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), but then the minute I make plans I immediately wish I could just stay in my pjs. Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way.

You have got to print this free printable. It's a step by step guide to all things Christmas organization and who can't use a little organization during this time of year.

I really want to try to be more intentional about being a great wife, not just an okay one. Even if they won't admit it, guys need to be shown love too and in lots of different ways.

Did anyone watch the last episode of Homeland. I literally caught myself sitting on the couch with my mouth open. Wide open. Shock.Ing.

I read a great article yesterday about loving your job. We're always told "Do what you love," but the author's point was that no matter what job you do, try to find the joy in it. Even really fantastic jobs can seem "un-fun" after you've worked it a while and the more you start to pick your job apart, the easier it is to feel unhappy. 

Britax's new click-tight car seat installation system seems brilliant. Hopefully all car seats will adopt this because those things are a pain to put in and take out. (This one was really random, but the commercial for it came on while I was writing this)

Only one more day til Friday!

Linking up with Annie.

  1. I am totally with you on the recipe rut thing. I would much rather do something easy than come home from work and cook for an hour and then have to clean up and then after like 2 hours finally being able to sit down. It is tough. Also I am all about relaxing in my PJs. My friends know that I am usually not their go to girl about doing something during the week..usually I come home and get straight in my PJs and I am not complaining one second.

  2. Haha that first e-card! So true! {Gross.. but so true!} And then FOMO.. it's such a real thing, but I'm totally there with you when I'm not at home in my pjs! Haha!

    1. I couldn't resist that happens to the best of us:)

  3. I have a huge FOMO and that first quote, OMG so true! I have been literally throwing chicken breast and either a ranch or italian salad dressing packet in the crockpot every couple of days and go from there. Sometimes I will add potatoes and veggies or put it in tacos or pasta. I'm lazy :)

    1. I haven't tried the chicken with ranch-I'm going to have to do that this week. Thanks for the idea:)
