Three Things Thursday: Lotion, A Silly Bird, & Mossy Bunnies



Welcome back to Three Things Thursday, a way to fill your blogs and social media with the happy!


Three Things Thursday is a simple concept that everyone is encouraged to play along with. All it requires is listing three (or more!) things that are making your life awesome. Please note! The three things you choose each week do not need to be big, huge, mighty, impressive things. In fact, I think it’s much better to focus on smaller, sillier things…because focusing on those little bits of joy and the gigglesnorts that they bring…well, that’s where day-to-day contentment lives, I believe.


So, how do you participate? Easy as falling off a log! Whip up a blog post about three things that are making you smile…then share it on the link up in this post. Don’t want to do a whole blog post? Feel free to post some pictures on Facebook or Instagram! If you tag me in your pictures, I 100% promise to give them appropriate love.❤


Just one more thing! Three Things Thursday posts actually don’t need to be done on Thursdays! I leave the link up active for the whole week every week…so you can be grateful on your own schedule.🙂


Okay, here we goooooo…




This goofy bird caught my eye and made such a ruckus in my brain that I couldn’t leave the store without him. 🙂 I don’t normally go for purely decorative, non-holiday items (I prefer a nice way to store bits and bobs or vases that double as science tools or anything multi-purpose), but this silly bird just wouldn’t be ignored.

Once upon a time, I was in love, love, love with all things Soap & Glory…but then they removed their products from the stores I shopped in. For a bit, their products could only be purchased online (with international delivery), and then in “fancier,” go-to-the-mall type stores…and I’m not going to the mall for pretty much anything ever…certainly not to buy soap. But the other day, I saw a wonderful thing! Soap & Glory was back in Target! There were rays of light and dramatic music emanating from the Soap & Glory display (in my mind, y’all), and I started swooping that stuff into my cart like I was on some sort of “fill up the cart” game show. I am so, so happy to have my favorite soap (and lotion and mascara and lots of other stuff) back in my life. 😀

Spring decorations are beginning around here! This area still needs some fresh flowers in those jars and some oddly-shaded eggs delicately placed upon that moss, but the groundwork has begun. 🙂

    Great list. I joined you this week! 🙂

    • Nerd in the Brain March 2, 2017 at 1:58 pm

      Yay! I’m so glad you did! 😀

      • JackieP March 2, 2017 at 3:10 pm

        Thanks, Nerdy! 🙂

    Lovely! I haven’t been able to come up with three things this week… it’s been too trying of a week. But the coming-together of my friends to support me and help me as I await Midnight Monster’s return has been a huge thing to be grateful for!

    • Nerd in the Brain March 3, 2017 at 6:32 am

      I super, super, super hope that Midnight Monster comes home so, so soon! <3

    Is #ThreeThingsThursday the official Twitter hashtag? I’m still getting used to tweeting my own blog posts; somehow, that just seems so show-offish, or something.

    • Nerd in the Brain March 3, 2017 at 6:34 am

      That is, indeed, the hashtag…though, honestly, I spend almost no time on Twitter lately. I know what you mean about tweeting your own posts. I have the thing on my posts that automatically sends a tweet, and that freaks me out a bit. 🙂 (All of the so-called blogging experts say you should tweet posts multiple times and keep tweeting posts that are popular, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.) I know tweeting our posts doesn’t make us show offs, but it still feels a bit weird.

    I’ve never tried Soap and Glory but now I’m intrigued. LOVE that bunny! And the bird? Now that’s just plain weird. 😜 Looking forward to getting my blogging shoes back on.

    • Nerd in the Brain March 3, 2017 at 9:24 am

      Glad to see you back! 😀 (Soap & Glory is absolutely fantastic, by the way…if you try it out, let me know what you think…and I promise they’re not paying me or anything.) 😉
