Tuesday Thoughts.

Oops! I have once again fallen behind with my Tuesday Thoughts posts.  I’ll try to be more consistent in the future 🙂

1.) I’ve really been enjoying my new nanny job. I’ll admit, it is definitely more work than I had originally expected but I’m learning something new everyday and am really starting to love the kids 🙂  Last week I helped Cameron (the two and a half year old) make an apple tree out of her hand prints; it turned out so well! I’m looking forward to more fall and winter themed crafts.

2.) It’s October 2nd (already!) which means it’s time to break out some scary movies!  Is it weird that these will consist of ‘scary’ movies from my adolescence? I’m thinking Casper and Hocus Pocus (maybe even Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire and Halloweentown if I can find them!!) Yes, I still enjoy these movies. 

Do you have a favorite Halloween, festive movie?

3.) I got new glasses last week and I am in love with them! Definitely different from what I’m used to but I’m starting to get used to them and feel like they give me a whole new look.

4.) My one year anniversary is this month (October 22nd to be exact!) I can’t believe it was almost one year ago that I married Marty! I’m still not sure what we’ll be doing to celebrate but I’m sure we’ll figure it out soon. We still have three weeks to decide 🙂

5.) I need to incorporate weight lifting back into my workout routine. I haven’t been as good about it lately and miss the way I used to feel after a good lifting session.

6.) I’ve tried a few great recipes lately. One of which is a Healthy Superman Ice Cream from the Dashing Dish! I’ll be honest, I normally can’t stand cottage cheese but you cannot taste it in the recipe.  Soo good! The other is a Pizzadilla from Budget Bytes.  I followed the recipe (for the most part) with the exception of a whole wheat wrap instead of a flour wrap.

  1. What a fun project. I did that with the little ones I babysat for a couple years back. Love your new glasses. They look great on you 🙂

    Happy Early Anniversary to you & the hubs. I’m sure you two will have the most wonderful evening together xo

  2. I’m glad that you’re loving your new job! I’m bummed that mine didn’t work out, because I really did enjoy the kids, I just didn’t feel comfortable in their home :/. And Happy Anniversary month! My friend’s anniversary is on the same day :).

  3. I’ve always thought nannying would be fun, but then I think I always discount how HARD it is, too. So hats off to you! That craft looks great, and I bet those kids are lucky to have you.

    I also love those corny Halloween movies from our youth. Do you remember the MK and Ashley Olson one, “Double Double Toil and Trouble”? The best!

    1. Oh my gosh! I love that one. I’ll have to add it to my list 🙂 I’m trying to think of some other ones. I saw that the Family Channel is having a thirteen days of Halloween going on in mid-October; I’ll have to catch a few of those movies!

  4. Those glasses are super cute! I desperately need new ones. The only Halloween-ish movie I can remember watching from when I was a teenager is The Craft. I don’t remember it at all though!
