The Thursday List Debut  

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Thursday nights are pizza nights. Well, they used to be anyway. Tonight Roland made chicken kiev, but that's really beside the point.

See, many moons ago, before I even met Roland, (geez, I think it has been eleven or twelve years now!) Michelle and I lived in a different apartment, and we would have my college roommate, Kelly, over every Thursday and have "Pizza Night," which would of course mean eating pizza, but it would also be so we could watch which is still my favorite show. After Roland and I got together, we still continued the tradition of pizza night. In fact, Roland even proposed on pizza night, but that's a future post. :)

A couple of years ago, my friend Kelly moved with her husband to Florida, and I miss her a bunch. In fact, last Monday she had her first child, a little girl. I'm so happy for her, but I really wish I could go see her and her little one. We aren't as regular with pizza night anymore, but often we do opt for pizza on Thursday nights, and we especially have a pizza night whenever Kelly comes to visit.

I recently found the blogs: Tip Junkie and Today's Creative Blog, both of whom are right up my alley, because they show lots of pictures and fun things to highlight things they've found around the bloggy world. Then last weekend I was looking at Amy's Notebook where she lists weekly all the cool things that she finds in various blogs that she wants to remember for another time, and I thought, "hey, I could do something similar. (Hey, Jenn, I just noticed you are listed in her most recent post!) Maybe that's the way I can keep track of all of the cool things I see online, and maybe I can post it too, just in case anyone else wants to check stuff out. So then I was wondering about when and how often I should post my list, I thought, maybe I'll give it a go on Thursdays, since having something fun on Thursday nights always made a great precursor to the weekend. So here is the first installment of my Thursday List.

Maybe someday I'll come up with a snappier name. In the meantime it is fitting, as before I was a teacher, I worked for a health insurance company and my job was basically to make lists. No kidding. (Believe me, I wish I was.) So, I should be able to list with the best of them.

So, in no particular order, some stuff on a list:

Keeping juice boxes from squirting.

I tend to have Seasonal Depression, and I'm thinking about ordering this candle Sunscreen Candle

I came across this tonight and I think it is so pretty: Ribbon Mobile

I saw this awhile ago and want to remember it for next year: Peppermint Whipped Cream

This looks good too: Taco Soup

I love the idea of a Recipe Club I just wished that a) I cooked, and b)I had some friends who would do this with me. Maybe I could start an online club?

I'm thinking about trying this for Easter: Coffee Cake Bread

I've been wanting to try to make these, I just need to give myself permission to "mess around." Decorated Letters

Ok, I'm sure there's more stuff I want to keep track of, but I'm going to post this and see how it turns out. There's a lot of links in there for this new little Blogger. The rest will have to wait until next Thursday. :)

    I love the idea of finding what you find and like. I come across so many interesting "finds" on the blogsphere but never go back to them. This is a great idea.

    also... i loved Friends. It was my life for a while. miss it.
