fun facts friday

May 18, 2012

1. I will not spoil anything for you if you have not watched Grey’s Anatomy’s season finale yet, but OH. MY.

2. Sometimes I wish I were the inventor of something amazing so I could be super cool.

3. I’ve still got my cold. And now the Husband is sick too. I didn’t believe him on Wednesday night until he blew his nose too hard and got a bloody nose (too much? whatever, I’ve had 4 in the last week). The poor guy always gets fevers when he gets sick. I never do, so I never knew our thermometer beeped all weird and turned red when someone has a fever over 100 degrees. It was kind of cool, minus the sick husband thing.

4. Larabar surprised me with a package of their new Uber bars on Wednesday. I was incredibly excited and broke into the Cherry Cobbler bar yesterday after school. I loved it. It’s crunchy, sweet, and full of whole nuts. I want like 7,000.

5. On Tuesday when I was babysitting, the little boy made us wear his Lego container as a hat. He was allowed to show his face for a picture, but I wasn’t. Is he trying to tell me something?

IMG_20120515_200034

6. This week has been so crazy busy that I can’t wait until this weekend when I can sit on my couch… or complete all my students’ report cards since they’re due early next week.

7. Have I told you my graduate program got accepted this week? That means come August I’ll be back in school every Tuesday night getting my masters. Don’t even make fun of me for being excited. I love school.

8. Ashley sent me the sweetest package this week. I was having an… emotional week last week so she sent me a goodie box full of chocolate, larabars, and the cutest card.

IMG_20120517_173911

ps — there is a possibility that we get to meet next weekend because she’s going to Michigan. I cannot even tell you how stinkin’ excited I am!!!!!

9. One more week left of schoooooooool!

10. Happy Friday!

Thanks! When working in a school district, they’ll sometimes pay for a portion of it, but you have to get it approved. I’ve been nervous they wouldn’t approve it because of budget things.

I realize I should probably know this, but what are you getting your masters in?? So exciting!

haha! I’m going for Curriculum and Instruction.

Tina @ Best Body Fitness May 18, 2012 at 6:04 am

What is it with kids and the lego box hats?? Both mine have amused themselves that same way many times.

Now I cannot wait to watch the finale tonight.

And those uber larabars are better than the original I think. I love the texture!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey May 18, 2012 at 6:06 am

I love the texture too! They’re so delicious. The finale had me crying within ten minutes.

Erica @ For the Sake of Cake May 18, 2012 at 6:11 am

I’m dying to try those Uber Larabars after seeing them pop up on everyone’s blog!

I’m SO jealous you only have 1 week left… we have 3… ugh.

I sometimes wish I could go back to school too, but then I pay more than our mortage in student loans for the month, and I don’t want anything to do with it again.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey May 19, 2012 at 7:18 am

Oh yeah, we’re drowning in loans too, but I’m not taking out loans for this time around. We’re going to make it work.

Oh goodness for Grey’s. That’s all I can say about that. HAPPY FRIDAY!

I think I maybe mentioned once (on twitter) that I was looking at grad programs, but took the plunge this week!

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin May 18, 2012 at 7:24 am

I only just finished the 7th season of Grey’s, but now I’m so excited to get started on the 8th season so that I can find out what the heck everyone was talking about last night!!!

Congrats on grad school! I’m so excited for you! Don’t worry – I love school too. We can be dorks together. ;)

cleaneatingchelsey May 19, 2012 at 7:21 am

Oh yes, you need to catch up! This whole season wasn’t thaat great – there was definitely some times where it was slow moving!

Reply

Cait @ Beyond Bananas May 18, 2012 at 7:28 am

Jealous that you have one week left of school. We are in til the 15th.. and that is and EARLY date for Connecticut!

Also.. SO agree at Grey’s. I never stay up for the whole thing.. but the first clip had me hooked! I can’t believe we have to wait til September or October to see what happens!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey May 19, 2012 at 7:22 am

That is ridiculous!!! Did you start after labor day?

Reply

Cait @ beyond bananas May 19, 2012 at 8:49 am

We start the last week in August. We were delayed a lite this year…only by a few days..because of a bad hurricane that hit and caused flooding in the school. It didn’t affect our last day(thank goodness). Some schools are in until like June 26!!!

Reply

Lori Lynn May 18, 2012 at 7:29 am

I watched Grey’s last night, and there were a lot of gruesome parts to it. I was shocked about what happened as well!
Congrats on the Grad school. It’s good that you’re doing it now. I started my Master’s almost immediately after I did my undergraduate, and I can’t imagine doing it now!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey May 19, 2012 at 7:23 am

Thanks! I had to wait 3 years until my school district would pay for a portion of it, so I wanted to wait it out!

Reply

Renee May 18, 2012 at 7:36 am

Yay! Congratulations! Even though I’ve been a professional student for the past 5 years (no joke) I can honestly say I would go back to school in an instant…I’m a nerd too:)

Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers May 18, 2012 at 7:42 am

I hope you two feel better soon. Sounds like a good excuse to stay in and have a movie and cuddle marathon on the couch this weekend.

Oh, and now I’m super excited about Larabar. Cherry pie was already my fav, so that one definitely has me interested in their new stuff!

cleaneatingchelsey May 19, 2012 at 7:24 am

Oh I definitely slept for 10 hours last night – it was glorious!

Oh, and beware of those Lego buckets – once, as a child, I got one stuck on my head. It took three hours to get it off!

I don’t even care for Grey’s Anatomy, but watched the finale last night, and I’m with you…O.M.G. Scandal is my new favorite show (sorry LL Cool J) and it was pretty fantabulous last night as well! Season finales make me crazy!

Have a great weekend! By the way, Charlie is so stinking cute!

Grey’s Anatomy finale was so intense!!! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! I actually didn’t watch any other episodes before this, and just decided to tune in for the finale. Oops. I agree on the inventor thing, I always watch this show called Dragon’s Den where they have inventors come in and present their ideas to investors and OMG so good. Haha, I want to steal all of their ideas. Congrats on getting accepted into your graduate program! That is amazing news! What are you getting your Master’s in?

I actually love school too. Congratulations! I’m considering going back so that I can actually get a job instead of constantly being told that I’d be great, but don’t have enough experience in the field. Well, I’m not getting any experience and they usually waive that if you have a higher degree.

I’ sry to hear being so sick, the worst! But glad you have such sweet friends in your life to lift your spirits :) And congrats on getting your masters, what an accomplishment– I think your really cool w/o having to invent anything ;)

Yeah Grey’s?!! It happens every year but I always can’t even believe how long we have to wait for more episodes.

And I haven’t seen the Uber bars anywhere yet but that sounds great.

And I always get bloody noses when I’m sick too. It’s the worst – I hope you feel better soon!

Please tell me you cried watching Grey’s. I felt like such a loser, but I totally had tears for about 50% of the season finale. I’m still wondering if more people get cut once next season airs. I guess we’ll have to wait and seeeeee!

Totally cried. Don’t you worry girl!

Reply

Kait @ yogabeautylife May 21, 2012 at 10:25 pm

1. So don’t hate me but…I didn’t love the grey’s finale! I felt like its just gotten a bit painful at this point with the catastrophes…and Christina pointing it out made it seem self-patronizing. The Private Practice finale on the other hand…

2. If you don’t watch Private Practice, put it on your to-do list. Its got all the good stuff of original grey’s with juicier (read: harder-to-tackle moral) issues.

3. CONGRATS on grad school! And good luck balancing school + work. :) I’m excited for updates.

4. Hope hubby + you are back to 100% at this point. :)

Kait @ yogabeautylife May 21, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Ok that other comment was not supposed to be in reply to yours! I was going to let you know that the remaining original characters all signed on for the next 2 seasons. :)

Oh and I totally cried, even if I didn’t love the epi!

congrats on your masters acceptance!!!!!!!!!!!! so so exciting :)

ps i keep meaning to ask you (not sure if this is the right place so delete this comment if you want). do you use stevia?? i have been reading more and more about links between stevia and infertility/amenorrhea (google cautiously). i just wanted to bring it to your attention if you hadnt heard. i know youre doing acupuncture (so am i). and as i semi-told you previously, im having similar issues. anyway, i just quit stevia cold turkey. we shall see….

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey May 21, 2012 at 6:02 am

Wow! I didn’t know that – at all. I use stevia in my oats in the morning. No more! I’m going to google it, even though you’ve warned me. haha!
