fun facts friday

June 22, 2012

1. For those that don’t know, I watch my niece one day a week for my sister during the summer. Yesterday we hit a milestone in our relationship. When my sister got home, I gave the baby to her and then walked past them to get my Kindle. When I walked past, she reached for me! This is BIG news people. I took her, got so excited, and accidentally scared her.Whoops.

2. My husband is going to kill me for this, but I’m thinking it might be worth it. My sister in law posted it on Facebook yesterday —look how cute he was! My five year old niece is like a clone of that picture — it’s crazy.

3. Some things I noticed about this picture: my mother in law still has that egg scale. My husband apparently never has worn shirts in his life. The Husband’s love for Cap’n Crunch started young.

4. I STILL have yet to catch up with The Bachelorette from Monday night — this needs to change.

5. I have a play date with Katie tomorrow — yippee! I haven’t seen her since Memorial Day weekend!

6. I watched Justin Bieber Around the World yesterday — don’t hate. Speaking of which, has anyone else noticed that MTV has only started to promote him and his music? I guess he has graduated from the Disney Channel. Since you know, he’s all of 18 and all.

7. I want to bathe in these.

8. Love this headband!

Knotted jersey headband tutorial from Love Stitched.

9. I want to tattoo this onto my Husband’s arm so he sees it whenever he puts his head down on his forearm when I annoy him. It will brainwash him. Muahhaha.

Heehee

10. And going with the marriage theme, this is a great blog post!

These are awesome tips and advice!

11. On Tuesday night, when I went to bed to read/go to sleep, I didn’t even need my reading lamp on because it was still light outside. #pathetic

12. The winner of the Love Grown is #42, Julie!!!! Congrats girl, email me!

13. It’s Friday — enjoy the weekend!

I went to bed at 9:30 on Wednesday – my husband’s friends came over at 10 and came in to say hello and good night. I’m such an old woman.

haha that sounds like me on some nights in college – my roomates would have people over and they would come tell me goodnight. In my defense, I was student teaching!!

Katie @ Peace Love & Oats June 22, 2012 at 7:02 am

Yay for play dates tomorrow!!! And what is an egg scale?

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey June 22, 2012 at 7:08 am

haha you put it on the scale, and it tells you if it’s a small egg, a medium egg, a large egg, or an extra large egg.

Christina June 22, 2012 at 10:13 am

1. Your niece reaching for you makes my heart melt.
2. Husband pic is too great. He looks like he’s thinking, “Yea, I’m holding an egg. What about it?”
3. I want that headband for myself. Is that odd?
4. Thanks for the Stupendous Marriage link. I love reading anything uplifting regarding relationships/marriage. It can be hard to find sometimes, with so much negativity out there.
5. Have a rockin’ weekend!

I happen to love that there’s an open box of Cap’n Crunch and what looks to be Cocoa Krispies in that picture. At least they were fed properly :)

Haha blogger’s husbands have it so rough. Any other guy would just get teased about old pictures… but blogger’s husbands get publicly embarrassed on the internet! :P

Happy Friday!

I watched it Friday night, I think – it was soo good!

Bahaha, that thing about being difficult and stubborn is awesome. I just posted it on my boyfriend’s Facebook wall!

Ahh, I need to find that card and send it to my husband ;) lol!

Madeline @ Food Fitness and Family June 22, 2012 at 1:11 pm

I want to make that headband for myself AND Emmie. Is it weird for us to match?? And seriously what is an egg scale?

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey June 24, 2012 at 6:20 pm

No, mommy/daughter matching things are the best. The egg scale tells you if it’s a small egg, medium egg, large egg, or extra large egg.

Alyssa @ Life of bLyss June 22, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Can we bathe together? I was also thinking those looked crazy good.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey June 24, 2012 at 6:20 pm

At first I was taken aback by that comment, until I remembered what I wrote. And yes, yes we can – swimsuits first please. :)

That headband is adorable! I secretly love early bedtimes in the summer…summer mornings are my favorite and the only way to wake up early for one is to sleep a little when it’s light. It’s fine.
