Thinking Out Loud

Happy Thursday!!  We are successfully headed towards the weekend.  Woo Hoo!!  I’m thinking out loud today and letting it fly! Thinking-Out-Loud

I signed up a few months ago with Stitch Fix.  I had several friends who had some luck with the service and I thought why not?!  I already receive Ipsy (referral code) and love it so a clothing and accessory subscription box sounded like something I would love.  For $20 a fix, they send you 5 different pieces. Keep what you want, send back what you don’t like.  I’ve received 3 of them now and I’m hooked!  I kept one item from my first box, 3 from my second and now all 5 pieces from this month’s box.  I love that you can ask the stylists to send you certain pieces based on what you might need in your wardrobe.  My focus this month was sleeveless tops for work!  I was sent three of them, a pair of cropped pants and awesome earrings!  If you are interested in trying it out for yourself, I do have a referral codestitchfix#3

All my TV guilty pleasures have started back up…Big Brother and So You Think You Can Dance.  These are two of my favorite shows!!  I’m a sucker for a reality TV show and Big Brother doesn’t fail to deliver.  It’s entertaining and funny.  SYTYCD is mixing it up this season and doing two teams, Team Stage and Team Street.  Who’s the captain of Team Street?  Twitch!  I fell in love with him the first time he was ever on the show and he still is amazing!

Hayden and I had an awesome time volunteering yesterday for a special local charity, BackPack Beginnings.  We signed up to help for a few hours in their warehouse, helping to inventory donations.  I’m hoping we can help a few more times this summer while we are home.  It’s great that Hayden is old enough to be able to help so well now and she enjoys doing it as well.  She gets that is important to help others and I love that it is something that we can do together.  We’re headed back on Sunday to help stuff backpacks.

We also at our a new to our town restaurant, but a favorite of ours from our trips to Annapolis, Noodle & Company.  It’s one of our favorites.  Hayden has been a vegetarian for almost 6 months now so it was a treat to find some good choices for her that weren’t just a salad.  She loved their Japanese pan noodles and the Thai Curry Soup.  She also got to practice her amazing chopstick skills! 🙂 noodlesandcompany

  1. Melanie- this is my first time on your blog, so I had to comment on your sidebar image- you ROCK side bangs! And you look SO young! Seriously, you are a stunner. Okay, I just had to tell you that.

    As for your actual blog post, I find Stitch Fix fascinating! I don’t think I would ever partake in the service because I love shopping on my own way too much, but I love getting a peek into everyone’s fixes.

    Twitch is my favorite as well, though I will be rooting for Team Stage. Have great rest of your day, Melanie!

  2. Those tops are too cute!!

    So how does it work, they send it to you, you choose…How much do the items cost? Looks really interesting.

    I love volunteering and taking the kiddies with me. Setting a good example.

    I am not a fan of noodles and company but maybe I haven’t gotten the right things.

    Have a terrific Thursday!

  3. great tops from Stitch Fix! I am in love with the service as well! It may take a time or two but they work the kinks out! and I have been watching a little of so you think you can dance 🙂
