fun facts friday

July 13, 2012

1. I took two naps yesterday — one in the morning when Aubrey napped, and one in the afternoon when she napped again. That rule does not just apply to new moms. Everyone should be allowed two naps a day.

2. We switched phone carriers yesterday, and when my friend Kelly called my phone, she got a hold of a man named Steve. Uhhh, I’m not Steve, and my number didn’t change. That’s just weird.

3. Speaking of people named Kelly, my sister in law is VERY upset that she is never mentioned on the blog. Like seriously she almost disowned me the other day. When I asked her what she wanted me to say, she told me “uhh I don’t know, that I do your hair sometimes?” So, my sister in law Kelly does my hair sometimes. She’s going to style it for a wedding for me tomorrow. I promise I’ll never forget you again Kel.

4. Last night Charlie was outside, and I went out there to see what he was up to. I came outside to this.

5. Do you want to know what time I started making my lunch yesterday? 10:45 AM.That’s ridiculous. I was hungry, the baby was sleeping, and I knew the second she woke up I wouldn’t have a chance when she woke up. Every last bite was devoured — as always!

6.Thanks for all the support on yesterday’s post. You’re all amazing!

7. This is like… the story of my life.

8. Only 10 days until my birthday. Sadly, I want this. I think I’m out of luck. Who seriously would enjoy getting a vacuum for their birthday? I’m sick of Charlie hair.

9. Colleen wrote this post yesterday about things that she remembered from when 20-somethings were younger. I used to take those Lisa Frank erasers and erase nothing (seriously) and make eraser shavings and put them in plastic bags. Because that’s what every cool fifth grader should be doing while they’re teacher is teaching. I’m sure a great example for my students.

10. Happy friday!

Happy Friday to you, too! I am totally jealous of #1. I can’t get Meghan and Luke’s naps to overlap, which means 0 naps for mama. Booooooo!

That’s horrible – hopefully someday they will!!

I laughed out loud to the eraser-shavings-in-a-bag comment. That is hilarious. I would get the erasers and not erase a THING because I thought they were too pretty. I handed in many a messy paper in 5th grade.

Have fun at the wedding! And I’m with Colleen, I would just stare at those erasers and be afraid to use them!

Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 13, 2012 at 7:30 am

I need a nap… lol I’m so exhausted from this week but I couldn’t even sleep in when I tried so I ended up at the gym. I might just nap under my desk. And YAY almost your birthday!!!

I’ve thought about napping under my desk during my plan period some days!

Claire @ Live and Love to Eat July 13, 2012 at 7:32 am

Oh, I collected those pretty erasers. Even more pathetic. :)

Haha! I love it!

Erica @ For the Sake of Cake July 13, 2012 at 7:45 am

Dysons are amazing! I got one from my bridesmaids at my bridal shower last year. I don’t have the pet hair one, although that’s the one I definitely should’ve gone for. I live in a sea of pug hair… gross.

I’m slowly convincing the husband we need it!

Mattie @ comfy & confident July 13, 2012 at 7:53 am

I want to nap twice a day!!

haha love that gluten free gif! that’s how it is at my house sometimes when I bring home tofu haha

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:24 am

haha I never try to make theHusband eat tofu unless it’s blended into something! Otherwise he’ll freak.

get a Bissell vacuum! we bought one right after we got married and it does WONDERS with the dog hair. apparently it is comparable to a Dyson, but much more affordable.

Thanks!

Rebecca @ Miss Magnolia Munches & Moves July 13, 2012 at 10:27 am

My mom has that vacuum. Now, everytime I’m there I vacuum for fun. It’s sick, but that vacuum is amazing!

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:26 am

hahaha! That’s hilarious!

Stefanie @TheNewHealthy July 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

I would totally ask for a vacuum for my birthday. Or a kitchen appliance. Apparently, we’re both cool like that. ;)

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:27 am

Nothing wrong with it!

Lisa July 13, 2012 at 11:11 am

Haha, I also started making lunch at 10:45 yesterday!! That’s the exact time I put my veggies + potato in for roasting! I think we’re on the same channel over here:)
And embarrassing story about the Lisa Frank stuff. In elementary school I would tell everyone I was related to her, because you know we had the same name so duh, we are related. And I thought she was the coolest. Until I got called out that it’s not your first name that makes you related, but your last name. How dumb is that?! Oh god, I cringe thinking how I even tried to get that story out there. I’m an embarrassment.

Happy Friday to you! I fully supp0rt the two naps a day schedule! That sounds like a fabulous system to me! And happy early birthday! That is supposed to be an amazing vacuum! I also want something odd- a blender. But obvi not any blender, the glorious Vitamix! PS That gluten-free site is hilarious and so true!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:28 am

Oh a Vitamix would be a great present!

Carrie @ Lift Eat Repeat July 13, 2012 at 12:24 pm

We just got a Dyson from incentives at work- We LOVE it!
Highly recommend it! :)

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:29 am

That’s awesome! What vacuum did you have before? We have an Eureka, and the Husband is convinced it’s good enough!

Reply

Carrie @ Lift Eat Repeat July 17, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I can’t remember what kind it was, but it had just recently quit working so we needed a new one anyways. Good luck with the convincing! :)

Averie @ Averie Cooks July 13, 2012 at 12:34 pm

You are the most well-rested person I know! Congrats on a two-in-one nap day!

Surprisingly, I could always sleep more too. I’m always tired!

I can not get enough of the When I Went Gluten Free tumblr. Too freaking funny.

Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets July 13, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I bought the Dyson Animal last year because of my two frisky kitties, and it was the best $ I ever spent. I vacuum everything, and I do mean everything, and this thing hasn’t lost a beat, even with the abuse I’ve showered on it in the past year. The Hubby was appalled at the price and now he can’t imagine life without it.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:30 am

We have linen couches, and I feel like the pet hair will never come out of it – would you recommend it for that?!

Reply

Meghan July 16, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Yes absolutely. It has a ton of great attachments for vacuumming the upholstery, and I use it on our couches and chairs all the time. I love my cats but I’m also a clean freak, and I have never used a better vaccum, especially when it comes to animal hair.

He’s a pitbull/terrier mix – total sweetheart and a real big baby!

Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles July 13, 2012 at 6:58 pm

It would totally take away the coolness of those pretty erasers if you erased with them!!! ;)
YAY for the birthday coming up!!!

Leonor July 13, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Two naps sounds glorious!

Brittany (Healthy Slice of Life) July 14, 2012 at 9:16 am

I love you because the idea of a Dyson for a birthday gift sounds glorious to me, too! Now that Hailey crawls everywhere, I guess I need to try harder to get rid of Koda hairs everywhere.
Have a fun time at the wedding with your pretty hair thanks to Kelly! ;)

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:31 am

I swear those dog hairs just don’t go away!

Amy July 14, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Didn’t even know you could buy a vaccum for over $500!!

Your dog is too cute! I totally know what you mean about eating early- if I know I’m going to be super busy I always try to eat a healthy meal while I can:) happy almost birthday!

Lesley July 16, 2012 at 5:53 am

I absolutely love to nap and I don’t have any children. My husband Joe makes fun of me about it but I think it’s because I am on the go-go-go all the time! Love the pic of your pup! Looks like a pit bull? We have one of our own, Athena!

cleaneatingchelsey July 16, 2012 at 7:34 am

He is! He’s a mix – he’s such a baby! lol
