I’m starting to look forward to posting the things I love on Thursdays and I hope you enjoy reading just as much.

Things I Love Thursday

Grandkids Picture

For the first time in four years, my entire family got together. We’re all spread out across the U.S. and it’s hard to get everyone in one place at the same time. We took family pictures and also a picture of grandma and papa with all of the grandkids. I’m loving this picture!



Oreo Thins

I might be telling on myself here, but I love these Oreo thins better than regular Oreos. I don’t typically buy Oreos, but when I saw these advertised I wanted to try them. Four Cookies are 140 calories. They are a satisfying sweet treat. You could buy a pack of 12 on Amazon for approximately $3.16 per package, or just go to Target or Wal-Mart where they cost approximately $2.98.

OREO Thins. Mint. Golden. Classed. Crisp. Thin. Delicate.

Birds Eye Steamfresh Pure & Simple Veggies

I used to always buy fresh veggies but recently came across the Birds Eye Steamfresh Pure & Simple Veggies and fell in love with the convenience. They’re simply the frozen veggies without anything added. I can just pop the bag in the microwave and the veggies are cooked in minutes with no prep.

Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression by Brooke Shields

Thanks to Tom Cruise, we’re probably all at least aware that this book exists. I just finished this up and I really enjoyed reading this while I am still recovering from PPD. I was able to relate in many ways. I plan on writing a full review of this book in the future. You can find it on Amazon.

My New Fake Wedding Ring

My real wedding ring doesn’t currently fit, thanks to the weight I gained during pregnancy, etc. I miss wearing it. This is my second fake ring since pregnancy; the first one started to tarnish so I didn’t want to look tacky. Thanks for the bling, Wal-Mart! ha.



What are you loving this week?


  1. You have a lot of little kids in your family. So cute!
    Love the ring!

  2. Haha! I'm not the only woman who bought myself a "fake" wedding ring from Walmart??? :) My actual wedding ring hasn't fit in years. I lost my anniversary band for like a year and, like you, got tired of not having one on. I bought a $40 sterling silver ring from Walmart to wear. Then, of course, I found my anniversary band!!! Ha I have that same skirt from Target that your mom is wearing. What an awesome pic!

  3. I have a gold ring and I am one of the few ladies out there that still enjoys wearing gold (I think)! Anyway, on occasion I wear silver and when I work at the Y (with kids, paint, spit ups, etc...)I don't wear my diamonds so, years ago at a Silpada jewelry party I bought a $50 silver ring....I get more comments on that thing then I could have ever imagined.

  4. I love that picture! Frozen veggies are my lifesaver, especially on nights when hubby is working. I get giant bags of them at Costco and try to toss some into whatever dishes I'm making.

    Also, your "fake" ring is beautiful!

  5. I've been wanting to try those Oreo Thins :) Look yummy!!
