Shallow Thoughts

I've been trying to catch my "deeper" thoughts as they pass through my head, to try to nail them down in words. Evidently, they move too fast for me to catch, or I just don't have that many deep thoughts.

My life is mostly consumed of what's coming next, being prepared for the next meeting, the next drive, the next morning, the next meal. I don't have time to have deep thoughts.

These are the thoughts I could remember from today:

-I wonder where J.K. Rowling got her necklace from (the one she was wearing on the Oprah interview) and how much it cost? I like it cause it's funky and different.

- Is that hamburger in the refrigerator still good, or has it expired?
- Do I have anything for Walker to take to school tomorrow for lunch? Oh good, tomorrow is hot lunch day, which means I don't have to make a PB&J sandwich in the morning to go with lunch, which means I may be able to sleep two minutes extra.
- I'm hungry.
- I really like Belk's new logo and tag line: Modern. Southern. Style. I love the fact they are embracing their southern roots.

- What the heck do you wear to a Bat Mitzvah? I'm going to my first one this weekend and have not a clue.
- I really like that new song "King of Anything". But I know if I add it to my iTunes I'll listen to it a million times and get sick of it in about a day.
- Walker's frogs died when we changed their water four days ago. I threw them out but I haven't told him yet. Waiting for him to notice they are gone, which he hasn't yet. I feel guilty, but I'm thinking this is the best thing for all of us. Except the frogs of course, may they rest in peace.
- I want to see that new movie "The Social Network", except Mike would rather cut his throat. I'll probably have to wait for the DVD.
- I still love Justin Timberlake. He and Jimmy Falon were great last week. I need to watch that again on YouTube.

So, that's just a random sampling of what I thought about today, in addition to all of the work stuff, which I don't really talk about on the blog, as not to be Dooced. I don't typically consider myself shallow, but really? Is that all I could come up with for today?

What are you shallow thoughts for the day? 


  1. thats so funny because i feel the same way... living in the moment is really hard when you have so many things on your plate. work, kids, social engagements... etc.

    i am trying so hard to live more in the now... but my "to do" list never seems to get smaller!

  2. This is such a cute post. I enjoyed reading. I like Belk's new logo too. I hadn't seen it yet.

  3. I hadn't seen the new belk logo and somehow didn't realize they were southern. I guess I knew they started in the south and people in other states seemed to not know what I was talking about....

  4. well I can help you with the bat mitzvah question because I recently went to one- cocktail wear for the most part. :)

  5. This made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion!!! :)

    Have a great week!!

  6. ditto on lunch - 4 times in my house.
    There must be a cream for the puffiness under my eyes.
    I bet Nick Saban was pissed.
    I need to take some art/craft classes.
    Why does my antenna not go down.
    What will I do when Mad Men ends?
    Was my 16 year old son really really where he said he was Saturday night.
    Holley B!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
