fun facts friday

April 13, 2012

1. Oh. My. Gosh. I am so incredibly sorry that I forgot to ever pick a winner for the Purely Elizabeth giveaway from last week! If I could send you each a package to make up for it, I would. Buuut, the winner is actually Kalyn!


Congratulations! Please email me so I can pass your information along!

2. In lieu of giving you all granola, how about a Larabar Mini giveaway instead? Go see Facebook for details!

3. Yesterday I planted beets in my garden. Last week I planted onions and potatoes. Yesterday while planting the beets, I was curious to see how the potatoes were doing so I took a chance and dug a little bit in the dirt. Those babies are growing like CRAAAAAZZZYYY! I’ve got five plants about to poke out! PS — did you know it’s like the easiest thing in the world to plant potatoes? It pretty much rocks.

4. The weather is finally going to get warmer again this weekend… and it’s going to rain. What the heck, April!!!

5. Let’s talk about how in the world it’s already April 15 on Sunday. Let’s talk for another moment about how I cannot believe how I only have six weeks of school left. How in the heck did that happen!?!?

6. I forgot to add something to my post from yesterday about what kind of person people think I am. People think I’m incredibly sarcastic… probably a little too much. I got my smart aleck remarks from my dad — which I’m sure my mom is oh so proud of. I also love laughing — in fact, at work every day there’s a chance that I’ve cried from laughing so hard. If you don’t do that at work, you need to find a new job.

7. Gluten free pizza tonight for dinner at my favorite pizza place! I’m incredibly excited to say the least.

8. I’m hoping to actually sleep in a little bit tomorrow. I have been extra tired this week. I just want to sleep until like 8:00. That would be a record breaking Saturday morning.

9. That’s all I’ve got for today — Happy Friday folks!

Have you tried the cauliflower crust pizza made from eggs and cauliflower? It’s gluten-free so perhaps it’s worth a shot…I plan to this weekend!


Joanna @ Midwestern Bite April 13, 2012 at 8:59 am

I made that a few months back – I was surprised at how good it was! With cheese in the crust, I cut back on the cheese on the top, it seemed like a lot otherwise. And it is more a knife and fork kinda pizza, but still, really good. I wonder if it would work with broccoli too….something to try later!


Amber K April 13, 2012 at 12:51 pm

That sounds delicious! I’m going to have to give that a try. It’s so hard to find a gluten-free pizza that doesn’t have xanthan gum in it.


Tina @ Best Body Fitness April 13, 2012 at 6:07 am

Have fun at pizza tonight! And yep – laughing is a must for me too. Easy with two crazy kiddos running around.


Lauren April 13, 2012 at 6:08 am

Haha, I don’t take you as being sarcastic in a bad way at all! Definitely the sweet funny sarcastic type. Happy Friday love!


Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile April 13, 2012 at 6:09 am

I am incredibly sarcastic too. I love it :)


Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles April 13, 2012 at 6:15 am

My weekend plans are to get my bootay to the garden and do some work! This weather is making me nervous though, so I’ll start with seedlings. Can’t wait for summer & gardening! <3 it!
….April 13th today, school will be done before we know it! :) I have my field trip in two weeks, that is always the sign that the end is basically here after the field trip is done. HOLY WOW!
Happy Friday and enjoy digging into that pizza tonight!


katie April 13, 2012 at 7:01 am

xoxo <3

I’m jealous of how much you love your job….today I CRIED at work. It is only 9:51 am. Damn it.


Averie @ Averie Cooks April 13, 2012 at 8:54 am

Glad your garden is taking off like gangbusters and woo-hoo for it being only 6 weeks til summer vacay! How did that happen so fast?!


Joanna @ Midwestern Bite April 13, 2012 at 9:01 am

I am waiting a bit longer on my garden. Partially because I haven’t ripped out last year’s dead tomato plants and partially because the weather around here has been so odd.


Kristen @ notsodomesticated April 13, 2012 at 9:02 am

I know, this spring is just going so quickly. But I’m glad it’s going quickly because we’re currently living in a hotel. I can’t wait until we close on our house on May 31st! Yahooo!!


Christine H April 13, 2012 at 9:03 am

Happy Friday to you!


christina April 13, 2012 at 9:19 am

Beets!! That makes me proud. Enjoy your pizza and sleep in!


Leanne April 13, 2012 at 9:26 am

I’m finding it strange to say that lately I have loved my job. I used to just think it was ok, but exhausting. Now suddenly I think it’s great. And yes, you HAVE to crack up laughing at work every now and then!


Brittany (healthy slice of life) April 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

Friday pizza night! Yum. Have a fabulous weekend! :)


Anna @ The Guiltless Life April 13, 2012 at 11:18 am

I would be super excited for pizza tonight too! I know time flies and I can’t believe we’re halfway through April either – eeps! Summer is just around the corner! :) :)


kathleen @ the daily crumb April 13, 2012 at 11:29 am

friday night pizza is the best!!! enjoy :)


Katie @ Peace Love & Oats April 13, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Where do you get the pizza from?! and yea, warm but rain? Really? ugh.


Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola April 13, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I’m so impressed that you garden! I have absolutely no green thumb so please post some pics! And I can’t believe we are halfway through April either? This month is going by at a rapid pace! Enjoy your GF pizza tonight and fingers crossed for sleeping in tomorrow morning!


Jen@FoodFamilyFitness April 13, 2012 at 12:49 pm

So sad that sleeping until 8 would actually be sleeping in to me!!!! Have a great weekend :)


Amber K April 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

I know what I’ll be planting if I get the chance! If potatoes are super easy that’s what I’ll have to do. I do not have a green thumb even in the slightest.


Carrie @ Lift Eat Repeat April 13, 2012 at 1:46 pm

You sarcastic?- no way! ;) Ha just kidding girl! I’m the same, I get it from dad too


Ellie @ healthy belly ellie April 13, 2012 at 1:56 pm

You planted beets?! Nice!! I just bought beets yesterday for the first time in a while! I made a wonderful lime cilantro beet salad! LOVE THEM BEETS!


Talia @ Bite Size Wellness April 13, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Oh I wish I had a backyard to grow a garden. My view now is buildings, buildings and concrete. Can’t wait to see pics of your spuds and stuff! Happy Friday!


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin April 13, 2012 at 5:39 pm

Ahhh that is so cool about your garden! I’m so jealous of all the super fresh produce you’re going to get to enjoy this summer!

Enjoy your pizza tonight!


Meg April 13, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I hope your having a great Friday, hun :) I love your excitement for your garden! I love planting a garden and see everything grow! :)

Enjoy your pizza babe! Sounds like a great night out :)


Baking Serendipity April 13, 2012 at 10:03 pm

I hear you on the sleep in part. I’m so ready for some catch-up. And potatoes might need to be my go-to garden idea. I always end up killing things…and blaming Phoenix.
