Getting to Know You Thursdays

Thanks for dropping by to get to know the MBP team of bloggers a little better. This week, we're catching up with MBP Sr. Contributor, Steph.

Good Eats- What's For Dinner Tonight? 
Something quick like usual on Thursdays. We go from activity to activity once we get home from school, tonight it is dance and Cub Scouts. I will probably pack a dinner for the kids to eat in the car or pick up something. My hubby plays basketball until 9, so he and I will eat when he gets home, we usually do sandwiches and soup or a frozen pizza. I think tonight we will do pizza.
Whatcha Reading? 
"Orange is the New Black" by Piper Kerman. I had been reading it a few weeks ago and had to return it to the library before I was finished but just got it back. Once I finish, then I can watch the series on Netflix.
Listening to Anything Good?
 We have Sirius radio in our van so I am usually tuned in to Radio Disney, but when the kiddos aren't with me I like to switch over to the 90s on 9 station. I love to hear some Oasis, Dave Matthews, and funky hip hop from my middle school and high school days.

Whatcha Been Watching? 
 Most of the usual shows I watch are heading into finale season, so mostly just random things I find on TV. We are Pacers fans, so we have been watching them in the playoffs--fingers crossed they start playing well again like they did in the first half of the season.

I Dreamed a Dream of...
 I don't remember my dreams very much anymore, I don't feel like I truly get enough deep sleep to have them anyways. I have a Jawbone that tracks my sleep and most nights I get very little deep sleep, that comes with the mom title I think.

What I'm Lovin' this Week... 
This past weekend I completed a mini marathon with an average pace of just around 12 minutes/mile. A year ago I was just about ready to have Baby C and never thought I would be able to run any distance and now I ran 9 miles straight before even having to walk a bit. Overall we ran about 85% of the race, much more than my goal (which was running 50%). I am already signed up for the same race in 2015.
I am so Done With... 
My right ring finger hurting. I cut a small part of the tip of it off last week slicing zucchini and it has been hard to avoid using it or even worse bumping it on things. I had to get a tetanus shot and have been keeping my finger wrapped for the most part. The doctor said it should grow back and not be an issue, so we will wait and see.
Silliest Thing this Week...
 Baby C, she is super silly and loves to be a dare devil. She will crawl and climb on to anything in her path, sometimes she will face plant off whatever it is and just sit up and smile. She is super happy and just loves to be in the mix of her brother and sister all the time, we are truly blessed with all our kids.

Thanks for catching up with me this week! I'd love to hear how you've been doing this week, too! Leave me a comment, if you feel like it! You're encouraged to select one of the questions above, and answer it in the comment section!


  1. Oh awesome! I didn't realize that "Orange is the New Black" was a book! I just saw the first series on Netflix when it came out but I didn't realize it was based on a book. I have to read it! I'm oddly intrigued by prison/jail life. Not that I want to go! Just interests me. Really enjoyed reading this section! Is is an every Thursday thing?

    1. Hey Jennifer- we do this post every Thursday and rotate which contributor shares answers to these questions. Glad you enjoyed & thanks for the comment!
