HuffPost Live: Thursday Thoughts

40% of women suffer from hair loss and I'm one of them! My solution: wigs!

You know, it's still a treat when a question or statement, of mine, is shared with a HuffPost Live guest. Watch Elisabeth Moss respond to my question. Thanks Elisabeth for your wonderful response.

I didn't think 'Joey' was a good spinoff idea. What spinoff did you think was a bad idea?

Yes! Companies are definitely behind this crazy 'national holidays'. Oh by the way, It's National Hamburger Day!

THREDup: Madden Girls Heels

THREDup is an online consignment store that offers brand name clothing, shoes and accessories at discount prices. I purchased these Madden Girls heels for $23.

They also accept items on consignment. Check out the website and see how much you can save.

Had an Eyebrow Threading and Treated Myself to a Handbag

Sometimes, I'm wicked sensitive to pain. So when I headed to my favorite eyebrow salon, for a threading, even the eyebrow technician noticed I was having a rough time and offered to take breaks. I decided to continue on with the process but not without tears.

Before I left the salon I decided to buy this floral orange trim handbag as a reward for surviving the ordeal. Love it!

OPI Spa Mani-Pedi

I headed to my favorite nail salon, treated myself to a Deluxe Spa Mani-Pedi. This time I didn't bring my own nail polish. I really like these OPI nail polish colors. Perfect for late summer!

Hope You're Having a Great Summer!

First, I have to say that summers in Vegas aren't my favorite time of year. If you've ever visited Las Vegas, you may have idea of what I'm talking. By noon, we're usually over 90 degrees. By 8pm, we're still in the 100s.

For the locals, it can be overwhelming living in this environment. The bright sun and heat requires all shades to wear sunscreen. And please don't leave your kids in the car! Despite the warning, we still lose some of young.

Anyways, I'm not here to just talk about the many dangers in the Vegas heat but more to talk about fall is coming!

My husband and I love taking walks to the park and farmers market when the cooler temperatures arrive.

Even better, I cut of the A/C, open the windows and watch our curtains move with the breeze! Lower electric bill!

So here wishing everyone a continued wonderful Summer. And wishing for fall temperatures in Las Vegas very soon!

Thank You Hubby! Adorable French Bulldog Salt and Pepper Shakers

Every time we got to Target my husband and I love to walk through the kitchen aisles. We have awesome restraint because when we see something we usually just add it to our wish list and move on.

So to my surprise, when I was heading into the kitchen, my eyes immediately caught a glimpse of these adorable blue French bulldogs! I immediately squealed and gave my hubby a big hug and kiss!

Saturday Dinner: Spinach Ravioli with Sauteed Button Mushrooms

I purchased the spinach ravioli and mushrooms at the market. All I needed to do was boil the raviolis for 4-5, wash, slice and saute the button mushrooms. I did add some pasta water to the mushrooms prior to adding the ravioli. Mix gently. Add salt and pepper. Serve.

Hubby had a few slices of pepperoni pizza for his dinner. It should did smell good.

Thursday Thoughts

Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Hubby and I have been re-watching West Wing on Netflix. I always find some new when re-watching a series. One the background is very active, people walking and interacting with each other. Another is when you spot an actress who's all grown up and having a successful career like Elisabeth Moss.

Thank you Caroline, HuffPost Live, for asking Elisabeth my question about her West Wing experience!

I'm so sorry for the families and loved ones of the firefighters that have been killed and injured. It's amazing to me that the west coast is is experiencing all of these wild fires. I pray that this will end soon.

Julian Bond, a celebrated champion for civil rights and former chairman of the NAACP, died Saturday night. Rest in peace Mr. Bond.

When I heard about that child brides have been outlawed since 2006 but the practice continues. Thank goodness there are activist working to make the process of annulment much easier. Hoping it new procedure will be approved soon!

I've Discovered a New TV Show to Love! The Fosters

Isn't it wonderful that you can discover TV shows due to social media?

Last year I noticed people chatting about a TV show, The Fosters, and watched a few episodes. I really like the show but I was already watching many shows on Hulu and Netflix.

So when I saw people talking about it again, this year, I thought I would start watching it again! Now I'm on Season 3 Episode 10!

Are you a fan of The Fosters?
