Thursday Thoughts

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate/referral links*

I am linking up again this week with Jen over at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom!

I am dying to go on some type of vacation. This summer weather has me in the beach mood! I think we may try out Kitty Hawk, NC this month, maybe? We have never been there and it looks beautiful. They have a really nice pier for fishing too, D and J would love that!

J learned to somewhat swim yesterday! He had only been getting in the water if we were holding on SUPER tight to him. Yesterday he was ready, we let go once (with his safety suit on) and then tried it one more time and he was golden. He actually REFUSED to let us hold him! Now, we can really enjoy swimming! I HIGHLY recommend this life vest, Stearn's Kids Puddle Jumper Deluxe Life Jacket, to anyone with a small child. It has been our saving grace. J feel safe in it and is swimming after only what, 2-3 weeks?! That is crazy! I had worried he would never swim! BEST MONEY EVER SPENT. I would buy it all over again!

D has made it into the next phase of his potential job!! Now just a few more steps left, fingers crossed!!!!

I was reading Jen's post and found out that you can use your Bergdorf Goodman giftcode from Glossybox at Neiman Marcus too! Now I have two places to shop!!! Make sure to go through Ebates and get 4.0% back from each store! If have not created an Ebates account, you can click here, they offer cash back for thousands of stores when you online shop. I always check when ordering, just in case! 

We FINALLY got around to doing the Pear Canvas Painting set (this one is a little different, but even cuter I think!), from the Skip Hop Elephant Plate & Bowl Citrus Lane Mystery Box. Sign up for Citrus Lane here. I wanted to do something other than the actual hand print. So, I picked out the colors in J's room (blues, red, greens) and put them on a plate. I then took painting tape and went straight across the blank canvas. After that I let J go to town painting everywhere. I let it dry over night and pulled the tape off. I think it looks pretty cool and he was amazed at what he had created!!! 

Tape is on and J is painting away.
The final results!
Finally, in the next 1-2 weeks some shows will start coming back on! Yes, I know I watch a ton of crazy shows haha!

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will start back up on June 19th. When this show first started I thought it was a bunch of junk, but when I actually watched it I liked it! Anna is getting married to Michael this season and the pictures are beautiful!

Switched at Birth will be back on June 16th. Two girls are switched at the hospital at birth, 16 years later they find out and find each other. I am very excited to see how the show plays out this season!

The Fosters will also have their new season premeir on June 16th. This show is produced by Jennifer Lopez. The show reflected the "modern American day family" and the struggles they face. This family has two moms, one biological/step child and 4 adopted children and plenty of love to go around. I love this show, possibly my favorite.
