06/14: Thursday Thoughts

1.  I am cool now you guys – I officially have a smart phone!  It is a Droid X to be exact.


2.  I already added Instagram, but I’m still trying to figure out how to use it.  You can follow me @MyFNFDiaries (same as Twitter).  Soon enough you’ll see some pictures. Winking smile

3.  This weekend I’m taking our 5th/6th grade kids from church to “CLUB56 Camp”.  This means little to no sleep for me and lots of preteens running around with way too much energy.  I’m already exhausted just thinking about it.

4.  Remember how my appetite was pretty nonexistent on Tuesday?  Yesterday I wanted to eat everything in sight.

5.  Oh yes, I’m supposed to announce the winner of the PB Crave Giveaway!  The winner is: Courtney @ Outrunning Insecurities!  Congratulations Courtney!  Email me at ashlw0304@yahoo.com with your shipping information.

Choco Choco Variety Pack

6.  Speaking of giveaways, I still never heard from the winner of the Gatorade Energy Chews.  If I don’t hear from the winner by the end of the weekend, I will choose a new winner.

7.  Another one of my recent favorite songs:

8.  After this week’s episode of The Bachelorette… 1st favorite: Sean, 2nd favorite: Arie, and 3rd favorite: Jef.  But then again, I don’t know if I can really see Emily and Jef together.  Is that just me?

9.  I loved this post from yesterday.  You should read it too.

10.  I’m excited to see my ladies for Senior’s Exercise Class today!  Off I go!

    I am Instagram obsessed! haha. I also love Evernote and Astrid Task – they both keep me organized :)
    This is sad but I am really liked Boyfriend by Justin Bieber right now… haha, oh and Whistle by Flo rida which at first drove my nuts!

  2. says

    I heard Kip Moore’s song a few weeks ago, and really liked it too. I hope you get recovered from your trip. I spent several days at my parents helping with my 5 yr old nephew, and was pretty tired after chasing after him. He has SO much energy!

  3. says

    Ahh I really need a smart phone!

    I’m loving Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks

    I totally agree on your bachelorette thoughts. I think Sean is definitely one of the most well rounded guys and is my first. I think she has a serious connection with Arie that will lead him to the finals. I think she and Jef have that cursh feeling but I just don’t imagine them together and I think she may end up hurting him :(

    That’s the exact same phone I have (minus several scratches)! Instagram is awesome; you will love it! I use the youversion Bible app all the time, and there is a wordpress app as well where you can easily check comments and reply, add a quick post, etc.

    I love that song too. I didn’t know you liked country music!

  5. says

    My current favorite jam is Back in Time by Pitbull! Never fails, it ALWAYS puts me in a good mood!
    You should get the PhotoShake App! You can take various pictures and “shake” your phone so they combine into one image collage! It’s pretty neat!

  6. says

    Right now my favorite song is probably Call Me Maybe by Carlie Rae Jepson. I’ve listened to it about a gazillion times. It’s really catchy and a great workout song. So is Starships by Nicki Minaj.

    And I sent you my shipping info for the giveaway. So cool that I won!

  7. Ali says

    Newish reader but I had to chime in to say I heard this song a few weeks ago and I’ve been loving it lately also!

    I worked with the pre-teens at my church for six years so I have a good idea about what you are in for! Good luck:)

  8. says

    1. I’m so excited for you about your new smart phone! You will love it! Plus, it makes working out more fun–you can surf the web on the elliptical! Not that I do that or anything… ha ha.
    2. I just added you on Twitter and IG…so excited to follow you!
    3. Good luck at the camp!

    Have a great day!

  9. says

    Yay for a new smartphone! Some of my favorite apps are Instagram (I followed you! I’m allisonpierce), Pandora, Twitter (also already following you! @_allisonpierce_), Facebook, The Nike Training Club app (tons of great workouts that I can do when I’m not at the gym), Draw Something, and Words With Friends. Needless to say, I’m a smartphone/social media junkie!

  10. says

    Congrats on the smart phone!! There are sooo many apps I feel like I can’t live without! If you like listening to podcasts The Village Church has an awesome app for sermon podcasts. I listen to them every day. Other than that…I just downloaded bump today which is really cool for transferring pics to your computer…you can get google reader of course, evernote, recipe apps….its endless really!! have fun!!

  11. says

    Ahh you joined the dark side! 😉 Just kidding. I’m actually totally jealous of your smartphone!

    And speaking of, is there really any reason to join Twitter if I don’t have a smartphone?? I always thought Twitter was what people used when they got online on their phones …

    • Ashley says

      oh yes, i used to use twitter all the time on my computer before i got my smart phone. it’s just another social media site that can help you promote your blog, make “friends”, and stay in touch with others. when i first got my twitter account, i didn’t use it much, but now i think i like it better than facebook! you should get it!! 😉

  12. says

    I still need to see more of Sean’s personality to know if I like him. I don’t know if I really see Jef and Emily together either but I think he might be a good change for her. We take this so seriously, lol. Have fun with your phone!! I don’t have one either.

  13. says

    I have instagram, but I’m pretty bad about actually remembering to use it..
    Social networking queen? Not this girl <— 😉

  14. Lindsay A says

    I agree! I like Jef, but I don’t see him and Emily as a match. I think he’d look better with…..me, persay :-) I think Sean is a sweetie so he is up there as my favorite. Arie creeps me out for some reason…I don’t know why….haha.

  15. says

    Ahhhh yes, Lindsay’s post yesterday was wonderful :) Your face is also wonderful! You look SO excited about your phone! CONGRATS! 😀

  16. says

    I love Sean. If Emily doesn’t take him, I’ll happily have him. I need an iphone, I can’t wait until my blackberry contract ends this month! Time couldn’t go any faster at this point. Is that sad the only reason I want a new phone is for instagram?

  17. kristle says

    my boyfriend is obsessed with instagram. i myself like the twitter app, and love the draw something game! and congrats on the pb win, courtney :)

  18. says

    I was so excited when Instagram notified me that you’d joined!! Start snapping pics, girlfran! <3

    Camp sounds like it's going to be slightly exhausting, but I bet it will be wonderful to go breathe some fresh mountain air over the weekend! I used to nanny for preteens in college, so I know aaaallll about their shenanigans. 😉 Can't wait to hear how it goes!

    I totally agree with you about Jef—a total sweetheart, but I can't see him going all the way. The spark just isn't there! I'm in love with Arie, but love Sean too! They'd both be fab husbands for Emily!

  19. says

    Yikes.. your weekend does sound exhausting! Just get plenty of caffeine into you, but don’t let any of those crazy kids have ANY haha… good luck pretty lady :)
    I have instagram but don’t really use it, I forget that I have it! Time to give it more of a go though, as it seems quite addicting
