fun facts friday

December 30, 2011

1. I basically suck because i never did announce my winner from the Serve giveaway. Te winner is Leila from Spinach and Skittles. You just won $100! Email me for prize details.

2. I’m not allowed to ever go back to work again — at least until I’m done watching Friday Nigh Lights. I will continue to say this over and over again.. but where in the world was I when this was on TV?

3. Charlie and my nephew are the best of buds. How stinkin’ cute is this picture?

4. What are you doing for New Years? Did you even know it was tomorrow? I did, but we still don’t know what we’re doing. Personally, that’s just fine with me, but I know the Husband wants to do something. I’m lame. He’s not.

5. I leave for Orlando in 5 days. In five days I will be in the happiest place on Earth! #sopumped

6. There is still no chance of snow in the 10 day forecast right now. What. The. Heck. Winter!!!!

7. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I go back to work — I’ve been getting up past 7:00 every  morning this week. 5:00 is going to seem torturous come January 9.

8. We are having friends over for dinner tonight and they requested something that I have made and posted about. I’m not disclosing that top secret information though, because I know they read every day. (Thanks Bradley and Megan!)

9. Does anyone else get confused for trash pick up day during weeks that have holidays? I know trash day is tomorrow because it’s pushed back a day, but about 90% of my neighbors have their trash out today which makes me nervous that I did something wrong. Anxiety much?

10. One more 8 miler tomorrow and that’s it for long runs before my half! You can find me next Saturday crossing the finish line with Mickey.

11. I feel like I have had my cold for like three weeks. It needs to leave. Pronto.

12. Happy Friday!

I don’t think we’ll do anything for New Years – and I’m totally okay with it! Have a great weekend.

Ahhhh you’re coming to my town – I can’t wait to see what you get into here! PS – if you’re looking for an awesome place with vegetarian and dairy-free stuff (they’re actually a totally vegan restaurant) you should check out Ethos :D

Thanks for pointing that out to me! Our first day in Orlando we’re actually going to Universal, and I just looked it up and Ethos is halfway between Universal and Disney – I think we’re going to make a stop there for dinner!

Faith @ For the Health of It January 2, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Hmm, I’m not sure which program you used, but Ethos is actually further north than both Universal and Disney. It’s right past downtown, so about 15 minutes from both parks. It’s still worth the drive, but I didn’t want ya planning a quick 2 mile drive and ending up on the opposite side of town.

Have fun!!

We don’t get confused on trash pickup because my husband refuses to GET our garbage picked up! We have a really long steep driveway and he says it’s not the money but the fact that we’d have to lug garbage cans up and down the driveway. So we pawn our garbage off on his work’s dumpster or my parents. Classy. Really.
Hope you guys figure out something to do for New Year’s!

How weird is it that while I’ve been sick I have made BFFs with Friday Night Lights on Netflix! :)
……I neeeeeed snow too! (and it needs to get me a late start to school or two!) I don’t want to wake up at 5:23 on Tuesday, I may not make it! My body may throw a fit and stay in bed. Those kids may just have to teach themselves ;) HA!

Well our garbage is always pushed back a day on holidays……or so I thought. Regular day is tuesday but I thought “I’ll just put it out wednesday” and also had anxiety when half my neighbors had their heaping bins out tuesday (but figured they’re always early with the trash anyway and I’m always last-minute larry running down the driveway in my heels as the garbage truck pulls into the subdivision) Needless to say, I missed garbage this week by waiting a day :( So did my neighbor so that makes me feel better. My boyfriend and I are also lame in that we aren’t doing anything for New Years, don’t like crowds or fighting for parking spaces, or drinking, so we’ll be home and probably asleep by 11. We’re not even old! Best of luck and have fun with the marathon! Enjoy Florida!

Oh no!!! I’m sorry you missed garbage day.

Rebecca December 30, 2011 at 8:58 am

Yay for races in warmer climates! :) Hope you beat the cold soon…down the herbal tea and green smoothies!
This is a rare year that I’m actually going out for a New Years party. Usually we just stay at home in our jammies, have movie marathons and bang pots at midnight #classy

OMG I just started watching Friday Night Lights too and I CAN’T STOP. I am totally addicted, and am also going to have to quit my job. Whoops.

Sarah December 30, 2011 at 10:00 am

Erica @ For the Sake of Cake December 30, 2011 at 10:12 am

Love that picture of Charlie & your nephew; so cute that he kept his tennis ball in his mouth!

Can’t believe it’s almost time for your half! I remember you posting about just booking the trip. Very exciting!

I go back the 3rd, payback for getting out the 16th. It is going to be so tough.

Love the picture with Charlie and your nephew! :) 9) I totally know how you feel! Where I live they push the days forward, so like if it’s Friday that they pick up trash and it’s a holiday, they do it on Wed. I hated it when I would forget they did that!
Have a great night with your friends!

I can’t believe your half marathon is so soon! Good luck on your last long run. :D

I’m going to a party on NYE… but I’d be just as happy staying home. I doubt I’ll even be able to stay awake until midnight!

My husband and I have never done anything for New Year’s and so we both want to. But we still haven’t figured out what to do! It’s tomorrow…so yeah we have to get on that.

Have fun in Orlando! You know you will…it IS the happiest place on earth, once you get past anyone who needs a nap or is having a tantrum. Lol. Seriously have a BLAST!!!!!!

I’m coming to dinner next. And I want something completely new and never before seen. Mmkay?

I am so with you on being lazy about New Years plans! The bf wants to go visit friends out of state, and I would rather either chill at home, or go to a friends party in the city. He’s definitely the adventurous one in the relationship. :)

I keep forgetting it’s almost New Year, but now I’m in NC with my friend Amy Lee

Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries December 30, 2011 at 3:20 pm

You’re going to kick half marathon ass! But since it’s Disney – maybe I should say “half marathon butt.” Either way – you’re going to be great! xo

Lindsay @ In Sweetness and In Health December 30, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Hope you feel better soon!! That’s a long time to have a cold! And I apparently need to watch Friday Night Lights. I’ve heard great things about it but for some reason have never watched it. I’m so jealous that you’ll be going to Florida so soon…you’ll have such a great time!

How long have you been running (as in minutes and miles?)

My roommate and I put pur trash out early, whoops! We don’t have New Year’s plans yet. I’m secretly hoping my boyfriend wants to stay in and snuggle. Odds are slim.

Leila @ Spinach and Skittles December 30, 2011 at 9:07 pm

Haha, I always get confused on trash day after a holiday. Thanks for the serve credit! I’ve never won anything before – you made my day!

Emily December 31, 2011 at 10:58 pm

I don’t have any exciting plans for New Years either. I’m such a grandma! Oh well.
I’m sure you and your hubby will have a lovely night, no matter what you wind up doing.
And yay for having your last long run tomorrow! You’re going to kick some serious butt in your half. Can’t wait to hear about it! (:
