Thursday thoughts :)

1. I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my summer.  It's almost time to start seriously looking for the fall play and winter musical we'll be doing.  I have some ideas, but I'm just not sure yet.  I also need to get into my room and start decorating and making copies.  All my ideas are in my head right now. :)
2. I'm thinking about starting to do some exercise classes at my gym.  Any suggestions?  I've been riding my stationary bike a lot and when I go to the gym, I do weight machines and the treadmill.  I'm pretty much a wussy, but I'd really like to tone up and lose some belly jiggle.  Help!  There's a zumba class and a power hour (?) tomorrow morning.  Hmmmm.
3. I'd like to branch out with my wines, but I really only like sweet wines like Moscato and Lambrusco.  I'm thinking that Mrs. Monologues at or Pink Lou Lou at help me out with that ;). (LOVE them! Love. Best. Blogs. Ever.)  Any tips, ladies?  I don't want to try some gross brand and be turned off forever. (As a side note, they do not sell Skinny Girl Margaritas in my area.  Isn't that a crime or something?)
4. It's birthday week!  I still cannot believe I'm 32. I certainly don't feel 32.  We went to the casino today... I lost...oh well.  I did, however, wish my brother bald with my birthday candles.   He told me wishes don't come true...lucky for him! ;)
5. I got some really cute things at Banana Republic on Monday.  I did go to J. Crew (the outlet!), but I just cannot justify spending so much on clothes!  I want to, though, but I just can't do it.
6. I've been looking for some new nail polish colors.  I like Cajun Shrimp and Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ from OPI and Ruby Slippers from China Glaze.  I still can't decide what I want.  Well, that's not true. I want them all, but I cannot spend $24 on three bottles of nail polish. Yet.
7. I have not read any book on my reading list.  FAIL.  Summer is going by too quickly.  Did you know I've only been to one beach all summer?  And it was chilly?  This needs to be remedied. Fast.
8. I feel like such a failure because I haven't gained any new readers. I read TONS of blogs. I don't want to go begging people to read mine. I promise I'll get better and this whole blogging business! :)
Are there any workout classes you would suggest?
What are you favorite wines?

Happy Almost Weekend!

Random Friday

  • My legs are so sore today from doing Jillian Michaels' Shred It with Weights that I think I may need to install a chair to take me up and down my stairs.
  • I'm having lunch with a friend that I used to work with that I haven't seen in a long time! Yay! :)  I never have time to do anything or see many people when I'm working, so I LOVE summer!
  • I still haven't lost a pound since I started working out consistently a month ago.  Um, yeah. That sucks and I'm pretty disappointed. I feel a little thinner, but really, scale?  Nothing?  I want instant gratification!
  • I have a mild Facebook addiction.
  • Has anyone else seen the show "Drinking Made Easy"?  It's awesome and I highly recommend it.  They make some tasty looking drinks and the guys on the show are pretty hilarious.
  • Is anyone else upset with "Back to School" commercials starting up so soon?  It's STILL July people!  
  • I'm really curious about Toms shoes lately.  How do they run size-wise?  Are the wedges comfortable?  
  • Has anyone signed up to donate bone marrow?  I tried to sign up, but then they wanted to CHARGE me $52.  What?  I really wanted to donate, too, so I was pretty disappointed.
  • I also want to try to donate blood.  I know it's pathetic that I've never done it before, but I cannot stand the idea of a needle in the crook of my arm.  Freaks. Me. Out.  I need to work up some nerve.
  • We're going to Tropical Smoothie for dinner tomorrow and I'm embarrassed to tell you how excited I am to go and get a smoothie.  I've been daydreaming about it.
Happy Friday!  What are your random thoughts for today? :)

Things I like :)

I've seen quite a few posts like this, but I don't know how to link up yet (help!), so I figured I'd go it alone this time. 
I LOVE products.  I love trying new things (as long as they don't cost a fortune) and am always looking for new products!  My love for things isn't limited to also includes wine! (And other things :).

1. Garnier Fructis Skin Renew Anti Puff Eye Roller.  I'm allergic to everything, so this really helps with under eye puffiness. 

2. Organix Shampoo and Conditioner, Nourishing Coconut Milk--This smells incredible!  My hair feels pretty nice, too.
3. Essie, OPI, and Zoya nail polishes.  The colors of Essie are awesome (the consistency is just okay), and OPI and Zoya apply very easily.

4. Banrock Station Moscato.   It's DELICIOUS!  I could not find a picture. Moscato and Lambrusco are my favorite wines.  Riunite Lambrusco is tasty!  
5. I just got Clinique's All About Eyes Rich...I've been using All About Eyes, but I figured I needed to step it up a notch.
6. The Urban Decay Naked Palate. LOVE. Sidecar is my favorite. I don't care if it has enough glitter for a middle aged go-go dancer.

7. Victoria's Secret Yoga Pants.  I believe I'm a bit late to hop on this ship, but le sigh...

This is just a tiny list of things I like!

What are some things that you like?

(I'm not sure if I didn't the pictures correctly...if I didn't, please let me know!  I don't want to commit a bloggy faux pas!)
