Random Thoughts of a Crazy Woman

My thoughts have been pretty random lately. None of these in and of themselves merit a full post, but hopefully they'll at least be entertaining.

  1. What is the difference between macaroons and whoopie pies? Is this an important distinction I need to know about to be a real grown up?
  2. I got a serger. More on this later. But can someone come to my house and show me how to use it? It's overwhelming to figure it out.
  3. My dog is so freaking cute that I can't stand it. But our next dog will be a non-shedding type, no matter how many thousands of dollars it costs.
  4. I cannot hold any more babies before we are ready to have our own, because they are making me crazy.
  5. My hair dresser styles my hair SO much better than I do. I wish I had her talents. Or a million dollars to pay her to do my hair every morning.
  6. Am I the only State of the Union watching junkie out there? I don't care who the President is, there's something so regal and awesome about the whole event.
  7. My new boss is awesome, and I'm learning so much from her.
That's it for now. I think. It's been a random kind of week. What random thing are you thinking about this week?


  1. I'm excited to see what you do with your serger. I've been kind of wanting one for a few years but i don't know if I'd use it enough to justify it. I have a tendency to "need" things and never use them.

    We watched SOTU too.

    Happy Wednesday.

  2. I'm in the process of learning the ways of the serger too. Last night was my first super frustrating what on earth is wrong it all looks right issue. My learning method is that I've been trying to use it as much as possible with whatever I'm working on. My mom also gave me this book ("The Ultimate Serger Answer Guide" which is super helpful since it's color photos vs the diagrams in my manual. Between my manual and that book I've been able to work through issues so far.
    I've found some decent "How To" stuff online too but for me having a book to flip though is helpful. I've pinned the good How To's in this board

    Just go for it with a pile of scraps, it's alot less scary that everyone had me thinking it would be, and the finished edges are AMAZING.

    Good Luck!

  3. 2. I'm jealous a serger sounds awesome!
    3. I'm with you on the next dog being a non-shedding breed! We have had hair everywhere since before we were married! I vacuum 3-4x a week...and could probably and maybe should do it daily!
    4. Are you sure you don't want to hold Bitsy....haha.....your safe we live to far away!
    6. Bud watched the State of the you two are on the same page for that one!

    sending hugs your way!
    No random thoughts here, lots of serious ones about budgets and Dave Ramsey's FPU....serious business!


  4. Do you mean macarons or macaroons? I know, I'm totally confusing you more. But there are two types, pronounced the same. One is made of coconut (which I personally find gross) and the other is made from almonds...delish. Whoopie pies are more like a cake with marshmallowy filling inside. Does that make sense?

  5. In regards to #3, I highly recommend getting a cockapoo. See my facebook for adorable, slightly obsessive pictures. I got mine from That was my shameless plug for 'poos.
