Thoughts on Thursday

Linking with Annie and Natalie for 
Thoughts for Thursday


~I'm getting my haircut today and I kind of want to do something different. I feel like I always go in their thinking that and then come out with the exact same thing. I really like Beth Behrs' hairstyle but as much as I love the way bangs look, I instantly regret them as soon as I walk out of the salon. 

I also have no clue how to style my hair so it would never look half as good as hers. I'm just really ready for something new so who knows!



~I've been trying to drink a tablespoon or so of Apple Cider Vinegar everyday and I'm struggling. I should probably just take it as a shot rather than add it to water and drink it slowly. It's just so tart and sour but I'm trying and I even made an Apple Pie Elixer to see if that would help to get it down easier, honestly I think it was worse! 

You can read all about ACV's benefits here. Mainly, it's great for weight control by suppressing your appetite and is supposed to give you energy. While I did notice a bit more energy after drinking it, which could of been a placebo effect, I didn't really notice a decrease in appetite. I'm going to keep attempting to drink it daily because it certainly doesn't hurt anything just doesn't taste the best!



~I really want to try a pair of Blank denim. They always have great reviews and their prices aren't bad at all. Most run around $80. I'm thinking about trying this pair that are on sale for $39 then additional 25% off. They're crop jeans and you'd think since I'm tall I wouldn't like crop jeans but I have a pair and they're actually one of my favorite jeans.




~So me and me alone, Theo's already said no, want to install backsplash in our kitchen. Every time I walk in my kitchen I always think there's something missing that would make it look complete and it's backsplash. I'm thinking something like this since we have black granite like this kitchen.

Update: As I'm typing this and showing Theo the picture, he said he does like it and would want to try to install it. Sometimes it just takes showing men visuals right ladies?!

Any one ever installed their own backsplash before? And tips or tricks?


~I don't know what my problem is this year but I haven't been in the Halloween mood at all. I usually watch a scary movie almost every night, we've watched maybe three.  By now I've watched Hocus Pocus at least five times, I've watched it once. I just hope I don't get this way about Christmas. Christmas is MY holiday, yes I know it's everyone's, but I like to think I get a little more excited than the average Joe. That was until I met bloggers and realized I'm not the only Christmas freak out there. I love having Lifetime and ABC Family 25 days of Christmas on TV 24/7 and I'm that person blasting Christmas music on my radio starting November 1st. Let's be honest, October 1st would be perfect. Well if we're going there, why not have it playing all year?! 
This explains Theo and my relationship perfectly

  2. I know what you mean about bangs. I always love them on other people, just not on me. And I need to try the apple cider thing. I've heard great things about but I really need to try it myself!

  3. I'm getting my hair cut today too and really want to do something different but I know I'm gonna chicken out. I definitely think I'm going with a lob though, my ends are really stringy right now but I'm not sure about color, maybe a bit darker for fall?! I'm also going to a new girl so we'll see how that goes. I'm not a Halloween fan at all and could careless about Thanksgiving so I'm always ready for Christmas!

  4. A backplash would be so pretty in your kitchen!! What is Theo thinking?! haha I'm with you on the Halloween thing this year... I think I'd just more exhausted than usual for it. We haven't even carved a pumpkin which is totally not like me. I definitely love Thanksgiving and Christmas though. You'll get excited for Christmas, just wait til you see all of the pretty decor at Target! And especially with our gift/cookie exchange night :)

  5. Woo hoo - glad Theo has jumped on the back splash wagon...you're right they just need a visual sometimes!! Can't wait to see what cut you go with and I'm totally the same way, want something way drastic, come out with a trim LOL

  6. Friends of ours did their own and they said it was pretty easy just time consuming. You have to rent a wet saw from Home Depot or wherever unless you all know someone that has one. Backsplash makes a huge difference!!

  7. hahaha Lifetime and ABC Family 25 days of Christmas is the sole reason why I have to get my Christmas shopping done before December because I will most likely not be moving off the couch. And if my husband can install a back splash - yours can too! They offer great classes at Home Depot - check the board next time you go in!

  8. I would just say go into your haircut knowing what you want. And make sure your stylist knows you and your personality. Ha, I speak from experience. I went to get mine cut a couple weeks ago and showed the stylist a picture, but I ended up with something completely different. I'm either half-up or in a pony tail for the next couple months. I have an endless supply of bobbypins. Haha, learn from my mistakes!

  9. Can't wait to see your haircut! I love that backsplash too.

  10. I kind of want bangs too, but I know if I get them they will probably be a bigger pain then I realize-- I always try and remind myself that pictures of celebs (most of the time) show them styled for events or interviews and things- not always just their everyday hairdo! I've heard about ACV but have never tried it-- I'll be interested to hear if you notice any more results after using it a bit longer. And I LOVE that backsplash, I think it will look great with the black counters!

  11. Have you tried just taking a tablespoon of the cider by itself? I think it might be more painful but at least its quick. I may try that. I haven't installed backsplash myself, but I know people that have. They usually come in sheets and I don't think it's really that bad!! Can't wait to hear if you do it and what you pick.

  12. I love having bangs. I actually couldn't tell you the last time I didn't have them. I have been using apple cider vinegar with my shampoo to help relieve my scalp from my hair coloring. I am DYING to install a back splash in our kitchen for the same reason. If y'all do it yourself, please let post about how difficult it is to do yourself. xo

  13. I missed the Halloween boat this year too. I didn't even get Presley a costume which is so sad considering it's her first! Whoops! I am so going to try some apple cider vinegar but I agree with you. If it's only a tablespoon take it as a shot!!

  14. Love the kitchen! The back splash looks great!

  15. You should definitely install a backsplash, I feel like it makes SUCH a difference! I talked briefly about putting ours in on recent my post about our kitchen makeover. Ours was a tiny bit more difficult since we had to use a wet saw to cut the marble. Just do your research and talk to the guys at Lowes/Home Depot or wherever. Then share the before and afters for me to see! =)

  16. I love the Christmas season and with today's frigid temps, I feel like it's right around the corner and we should start decorating! ABC Family's lineup always makes me happy as does Sirius radio's non-stop holiday music!
