Thursday Thoughts + $200 Disney Gift Card Giveaway

We’re one day closer to the weekend, hooray! For some reason I’ve been completely drained this week and I can’t wait for a little bit of R&R this weekend. Ok, well, I do know why I’m drained, and it’s mainly due to lack of sleep. I’ve only gotten ONE night of 8+ hours of sleep in the past couple weeks. It’s catching up to me!

stinky pig


  • I picked up this Stinky Pig game at BlogHer last month and it’s been the biggest hit in the family game category EVER. Every time my sisters are over or I’m visiting, they request we play the game. You press the pig’s belly and once he starts to sing, you pass him around the circle. Whoever’s left holding the pig when he “passes gas,” gets a coin. The person with the least amount of coins at the end, wins. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard playing a game – what a concept!
  • I may or may not have gone a little overboard with some online shopping. The sales were just too good! Some things I bought? This rain jacket (because it’s basically been monsooning here), “duck boots” (all the rage last year) + these babies in red. Someone take my credit card away!
  • The travel bug is in full force! I’m getting closer to finalizing dates and locations (yes plural!) of my next big trip and I couldn’t be more excited! More to come once things are a little more solidified.
  • I made the switch to Adproval for ads for my blog, and have new sponsor offerings available. Looking to sponsor a blog? I’d love to have you hang on my sidebar! Use “STCL40” for 40% off the “City Lights” ad spot.

      They would! The whole family was dying laughing over it! And Peanuts reached out to me to become an Ambassador. It’s been such an awesome experience!

    I can’t wait to hear about where you will travel to!! I’ve been spending so much lately, too…but at least you’re buying some stuff that’s useful like that raincoat, right? ;)

      Thanks, I’m getting so excited! Most of my travels this year haven’t been anywhere new, so I’m looking forward to a big trip in new places! And SO true. I’ll definitely use all of the things I bought so it’s not totally terrible :)
