fun facts friday… numero treis

September 2, 2011

1. It is amazing to me how much energy one measly glass of wine can do to me at 9:00 on a Thursday night. If you don’t believe me, please see the following tweets:

2. Our parent open house night was last night. Wine explanation covered.

3. It is the Husband’s birthday tomorrow, which means he can’t throw it in my face about how I’m an old lady (24.. .really!?) anymore since now we’re going to be the same age again. He likes to let me know all the time about how I’m way older than him, when really I am all of six weeks older than him. Apparently those six weeks I was alive not only made me an old lady, but also wiser as well (or so I’d like to think).

4. Sometimes I realize I’m kind of a slacker blogger. Wonderful Jessica has put together a great Chicago meet up at the end of September at a Whole Foods in Chicago. Why am I not thinking to do things like this? I like friends.

5. We usually go out of town for Labor Day weekend, but I am so glad we aren’t. I have a long list of things I want to get done – such as: sleep, make delicious food, and perhaps sleep some more.

6. I finished the book A Stolen Life by Jacee Duggard. While it was absolutely heart wrenching to read what this girl went through, it was a must read. Right now, I’m reading Elizabeth Street which has been pretty good so far.

7. I need to stop letting my nails get so long. It makes me feel like I’m going to poke myself in the eye when I put in my contacts in the morning – and we all know how much I hate to wear my glasses. Not only that, but I start the really bad habit of picking at my nails which is oh so very lady like.

8. I can’t believe how fast this week went by. I swear just yesterday I woke up and it was Monday. If this is any indication of the following school year (I think it might be – busy busy busy!), I think I might kind of have a love/hate relationship with it.

9. Pancakes tomorrow. That is all.

10. I almost got into 4 accidents this morning on the way to school – and no, they were not my fault. I may have gone to bed late, but I was alert and reading to go on the road this morning. People are crazy in this city. (edit: this was a total typo and I meant to say I was “ready” to go this morning — but the typo is so funny that I can’t even correct it!)

11. This morning at Starbuck’s, the lady at the window forgot to give me a large straw (because a Venti was certainly needed), and I had to park in a handicapped space for two minutes to get a straw. I was feeling convicted, but now that I’ve let it out, I’m feeling a little bit better.

12. Cleaning my house is like the last thing on the list of things I really want to do night. But, apparently I don’t get to choose my fate in this one. Guess what I’m doing right now?

13. I’ve won like five giveaways in the last two weeks. Just call me Lady Luck.

Lauren @ Forward is a Pace September 2, 2011 at 4:29 pm

What’s this about a Chicago meet up?!


Jackie Smith September 2, 2011 at 4:32 pm

Fun fact Friday: two kinds almost got in a fight in my second period class today. This has never happened before in my 12 years of teaching. I guess one of the guys has a reputation for flying off the handle–no one bothered to tell me. Now, I know.

It was still a good day.


Sweet and Savvy September 2, 2011 at 4:32 pm

Your labor day to do list sounds EXACTLY like mine!


Pure2raw twins September 2, 2011 at 4:44 pm

love the tweets, wine certainly does that to me as well ;)
and I am a lazy blogger too, there are so many great bloggers in my area but I never plan anything with them, not sure why, I have been busy but I need to do a better job of getting together with them.


Katie @ Peace Love and Oats September 2, 2011 at 5:10 pm

I so want to read that book!!! and FIVE?!?! I don’t think I’ve even entered five! haha


Tessa @ Amazing Asset September 2, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Ooo I want to read that book so much, but at the same time know the horrific story. I cannot believe what she went through either, my goodness.
I am pretty dang jealous of all of your wins! Pass me some luck please :)


Meredith @ food, shoes, and booze September 2, 2011 at 5:41 pm

I kept seeing your name when giveaway winners were announced… but I didn’t realize it was 5. that’s pretty amazing! Enjoy your long weekend :) Even if it involves cleaning the house… I ventured behind my refrigerator to do some sweeping today.. it was a bad experience.


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 2, 2011 at 5:44 pm

People driving crazy today…YES!!! It’s the start of a holiday weekend and I seriously think people are already checked out, and thinking about their weekend!


Courtney September 2, 2011 at 6:00 pm

I want to be lucky and win stuff, too! Congrats, girlie! :)


Gina September 2, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Hahah love those tweets! It’s funny what a little alcohol does to us all!

Congrats on winning so many giveaways, you are a lucky lady!


Lindsay @ Lindsay's List September 2, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Happy early b-day to your hubby!! Travis and I are 6 weeks apart as well…he calls me his cougar. ;)


cleaneatingchelsey September 2, 2011 at 7:38 pm

bahaha – I love that!


Katherine @ The Kats Meow September 2, 2011 at 7:39 pm

I just read a preview for the book on amazon and now I’m hooked. As soon as I get out of work I am buying it for my kindle and reading all night!


Lindsay@LivingLindsay September 2, 2011 at 7:48 pm

I want to read that book! It’s an oddly fascinating story and I’m really curious about it. I’m the same way with giveaways -when it rains, it pours! And just when I think, “I’m done entering. I never freakin’ win”, I’ll win four in a row. :)


Lauren September 2, 2011 at 7:55 pm

Haha, I saw that you won two giveaways and was thinking, “damn this girl is lucky!” LoL


Lauren @ What Lauren Likes September 2, 2011 at 8:17 pm

5 giveaways?! dang! lucky ducky :)


Angela @ MyPinkyToes September 2, 2011 at 8:58 pm

You are too funny! My favorite is number nine…will you come make some of those for me tomorrow morning?!


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen September 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm

I saw that you won a few giveaways recently, lucky you! I never win anything!
If 24 is old, I’m ancient at 29 which makes me feel even worse about the mere 7 months between me and 30!!!


Lindsay@bikingbeforebed September 2, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Looks like you need to make a trip to Vegas! Worst thing about long nails… when they click on the keyboard!


kelsey September 2, 2011 at 11:03 pm

I’m coming to Chicago! September 17th! I know it sounds boring – but I’m making Whole Fods a top priority because we just aren’t that special in Iowa to have WF & I’ve actually never been. Pancakes on Saturday = a perfect life.


Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health September 3, 2011 at 12:11 am

Wow, can I win some of those giveaways?? And I don’t consider you a slacker blogger at all. You’re fabulous :) . Pancakes tomorrow sound amazing..too bad I don’t have syrup.


Sophie @ threetimesf September 3, 2011 at 2:35 am

Haha I love those tweets! Is this like the new equivalent of drunken texting?!!


cleaneatingchelsey September 3, 2011 at 6:12 am

Yes except for the fact that I was not drunk. haha!


Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun September 3, 2011 at 7:42 pm

You are FAR from a slacker blogger!!! And I love your little tweet musings.


Jessica @ Dishin' About Nutrition September 6, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Hope you are able to come :)
