Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

I missed my blog...and my blog family!

- It took me three tries to log in to my Cafe Blog account. It's been THAT long since I've logged in and posted something. That's sad.

- For all of those in my blog family who may NOT know, I'm preggers!!! However, I'm pretty sure you all know that by now -it was the worst kept secret :-)

- I'm having a boy! Jaxon Dean McMillon will make his debut January 2014!

- I'm excited, happy, scared, nervous, anxious and an all around wreck - but I can't wait to see where this next chapter of my life takes me :-)

- Have I blogged since I got married? I'm married too :-)

- I have three cats. I've officially claimed my sister's cat as my own :-)

- Scandal tonight!

- I'm also watching Love & Hip Hop NY. Yeah, I said it.

- The best story ideas for me come from ratchet TV.

- Can't get with the Preachers of L.A. though. I tried...doesn't do it for me.

- I suck in Fantasy Football this year. I will NOT be repeating as champion :-(

- I'm grateful to have been at my job for 10 years now. I truly love what I do!

- I have a constant sour taste in my mouth since becoming pregnant. I'll be so glad when that goes away.

- People who pretend to "instantly" fall asleep as soon as they see me walk on the train are WACK!
Keep your seat!

- I'm always tired now. ALWAYS. But I know it's for a good reason, so I don't mind :-)

- I love all my family and friends. Thank you so much for all the well wishes and prayers!

Go!

Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

And Anna and Serena didn't have to remind me :-)

- Looking forward to 80 degree weather today! The warmth is coming to stay!

- I bought a house! Woo-hoo!!! Who's up for the blog family housewarming party?! :-)

- Now I have a mortgage. I'm a big girl now...scary and exciting!

- Season finale for Scandal tonight. Shonda Rhimes has been putting her FOOT in this series!

- I feel like shopping for sandals. But not before I get a nice pedicure. My feet look crazy!

- My kittens are so wonderful - best birthday gift ever!

- Gotta get my writing done tonight - suggestions for topics?

- Made chicken breasts and broccoli for lunch today - even though I want Chinese food or pizza. I gotta get back on my health grind though. I've been out of pocket lately.

- How do I stop these ads from popping up on my phone? I have a Galaxy S3 - and I think they're eating up my battery. This is nuts.

- I like my own handwriting :-)

- Drinking raspberry tea to keep warm. They always have it freezing in my office when it's warm outside. Silly.

- I have an amazing mentee named Maya - love her!

- Her mother is awesome too!

- Can someone help me move? :-)

- Can't wait to rock my BRIGHT PINK skinny jeans from Old Navy. I got alotta hips, so you'll definitely see me coming! LOL!

Go!

Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

- So...I finally have a mentee! Can't wait to meet her and her mom. I'm nervous and excited! I hope I can be a good influence, teacher, mentor...and friend.

- I'm tired.

- The weather the past couple of days has been gorgeous...but today, back to cool and drab. Booo.

- No Scandal tonight....guess I'll try to write something. Booo.

- I want the summer to be here already. If I can't take a real vacation, I at least want to wear flip flips in the warm sun for a while.

- My kittens are so cute...and so destructive! They jump on everything and scatter papers all over the place! They play when I want to sleep and sleep when I want to play. But I love them to death :-)

- My nephews make me smile from ear to ear :-)

- My sister is pretty awesome too! I don't know what I'd do without her :-)

- Any suggestions for article ideas for my writing? I ask every week and I get nothing! C'mon y'all!

- Syracuse gave it a good run and had a great basketball season - so proud of my alma mater! Go 'Cuse! Glad the Big East took it though :-)

- The movie 42 was pretty decent. Oblivion on Monday!

- I miss my boo :-( even though he gets on my last nerve :-)

- I wanna put on a sun dress/maxi dress. Soon come.

Go!

Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

- Annamaria reminded me that it was Thursday. It feels like a Wednesday to me, but maybe that's because I was out Monday. Glad to know I'm one day closer to the weekend!

- My nephew turned 9 years old this past Saturday - how is that even possible?! I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday! Next year he'll be in double digits and a pre-teen. Slow down!!!

- How does my sister have a child who is 9 and one who is 6 and I don't have any yet? That just seems odd. But not really...but it does.

- I need ideas for my Madamenoire.com articles - anyone have any suggestions?

- I hope that this year brings me many amazing opportunities to grow and prosper :-)

- I don't even see how I have time to blog today given how busy I always seem to be. I need a nice, long vacation. Anywhere. Just doing nothing.

- This woman at work announced her pregnancy to her department with balloons and cupcakes, but then when I said "Congratulations" to her, she looked at me funny and replied, "how did you know?"

Um...maybe because you made a big production out of it?

- I'm so thankful for all that I have...health, happiness, family, friends...love. Everything else is secondary.

- Time for some ginger tea! I feel another cold coming on.

- What's for lunch?

- Syracuse gonna WHOOP Michigan this weekend in their Final Four match up. My boo better be ready to hear my mouth. Go Cuse!

Go!
