It’s time for another Thursday Thoughts! If you want to participate, but have no idea what a link-up is, you can check out my explanation of it here.

~First things first! If you are participating in the NCAA Tournament Challenge (and you should be), you MUST get your picks finalized today by 12:15pm (that’s what time the first game starts). ESPN locks the brackets at tip-off and if yours isn’t completed by the time it (obviously) doesn’t count. I am thinking of a prize for the winner and then a few random prizes along the way as well! Last year I did a $100 Lululemon gift card for the winner, so it’ll be something similar. I haven’t quite worked out the details on the random giveaway prizes yet, but I am working on it. So join! It’ll be fun!

~The Advocare 24-Day Challenge is, well, it’s going.  I’ve been following it perfectly and eating clean, but it’ll be a few more days before I am feeling amazing.  Now I just want a Diet Pepsi.  I need to scope out for some new meal ideas but that shouldn’t be too hard.  But wouldn’t you know, yesterday at Target I stumbled into Ben & Jerry’s Cores, which I have been dying to try.  It’ll have to wait in the freezer a few weeks though!  I think I am going to try and follow an 80 / 20 kind of plan after the Challenge.  80% of the time I will eat clean.  20% not so clean. I think that’s reasonable (for me).

Doesn't that look good?

~I am still expecting various subscription boxes this week including FabFitFun, Escape Monthly (I am hoping that comes today), bluum, PijonBox, Loot Crate, Petit Vour, Taste for Sweets, Barkbox and probably a few more I am forgetting.   Oh, and I am still waiting on my Julep Mystery Box which is taking forever to get to me!

~After hearing about Frozen for the last few months and seeing everyone’s pictures of DVD’s the last few days on social media, I broke down and picked one up.  It’s possible I am the only person who didn’t watch the bootleg version of this that was floating around on the internet.  Anyway, I liked it.  Well what I saw of it anyway.  And I plan to watch it again without the kids around this weekend so I can really watch it!

~Congrats to Juli Zeigler, Jessie Meadvin and Rebecca Etson who won the 4,000 Likes / Thank You Giveaway!  They have been e-mailed and their prizes are headed out this week!  And congrats to Michelle Kim who won the March PopSugar Must Have Box Giveaway!!  And don’t forget to enter the Friday Night Fun 3-Month PopSugar Giveaway if you haven’t yet!

~I booked our flights for Disney this summer today!  I was looking at $800 flights during Spring Break.  This summer I got exactly what I wanted time wise for $300.  Amazing!  I think that savings is worth the summer heat / humidity!

~I don’t think we’ve discussed my obsession with Storage Wars lately, but I started watching it again and man, do I love that show.  Every time I watch it makes me want to run out and bid on storage lockers.  I would have no idea what to do with the stuff, but they make it seem so fun.  It’s like a giant grab bag!!  Love it!
