fun facts friday

September 28, 2012

1. So last weekend I tried to beat the system and did a one week free trial for Hulu Plus so I could watch the second season of Downton Abbey for free. One would think I would be ashamed to have watched an entire season of a show in one week, but nope, not me!! I know last week I said I hated Lady Mary, but I love her now!

2. Yesterday I went and saw Anita Renfroe, and I think I almost peed my pants like five times. If you’re not sure who she is, maybe you have seen this video?

3. The space bar on mykeyboardhas been sticking HORRIBLY lately. Like, I don’t wantto go back andspace everythingforyou on thisonejust soyou can see. HEEEEELLLLLPPP!

4. Yesterday I stopped in at the store(at9:30 no less —look at me!), and paid flipping FIVE DOLLARS for three apples!! Seriously? This is no good.

5. Tina and I are in the single digits now —only 7 days until I get to meet and hang out with her for four days! I can’t wait.

6. Food for thought:

7. My nephew and I are having a date night tomorrow — we’re going to see a movie and then he’s sleeping over. My niece is having her birthday slumber party and no boys are allowed!

8. Tonight you will find me sitting on my couch catching up on Grey’s, Glee, Up All Night, and The New Normal. I swear I have a life.

9. TGIF. For realz. Have a great weekend!

Anita Renfroe would be AWESOME to see! You luck duck! …….. Great quote! God is faithful and his plan for our lives is more than we could ever imagine for ourselves- though sometimes we THINK we like our plans better, at least this girl does :)

Linz @ Itz Linz September 28, 2012 at 6:59 am

my niece’s birthday party is tomorrow morning (the big 1!). my cousin who is a party planner is helping my sister with the party – no joke. the florist from my wedding is doing her flowers. #overboard?


Lindsay @ Lindsay's List September 28, 2012 at 6:59 am

how have I never seen that mom video before?!!?


Leslie September 28, 2012 at 7:01 am

Don’t feel bad, I watched the first TWO seasons in like. 2 days.. I love downtown abbey! I’m anxiously waiting season 3!! I should air this spring on PBS!!


Parita September 28, 2012 at 7:05 am

Love that food for thought – so true. And I remember the days of “no boys allowed” and “girls rule boys drool.” HAHA! Have a great weekend!


Kim@hungryhealthygirl September 28, 2012 at 7:17 am

I’ll be on the couch watching Grey’s too! Have a fun date night this weekend!


Olivia Hill September 28, 2012 at 8:12 am

Oh girl, absolutely don’t be ashamed of getting Hulu Plus for the sole purpose of watching Downton Abbey. That show is ah-mazing and I may or may not have watched the entire first and second season in a matter of 5 days. Don’t forget to watch the Christmas Special!!


Brittany (Healthy Slice of Life) September 28, 2012 at 8:35 am

Can I come tag along with you and Tina? Puh-leeeeze?


christina September 28, 2012 at 9:13 am

ugh sticky keyboard keys are the worst. i want to throw my computer when that happens. happy weekend. hope you have a nice, relaxing night in!


Rachel September 28, 2012 at 9:43 am

My space bar at work does that! It’s annoying lol Have a great weekend :)


Amanda @ .running with spoons. September 28, 2012 at 9:54 am

I’m having the same problem with the left shift key on my keyboard, and as hard as I try, I just can’t get used to using the right shift key so I put up with the stickiness. I wonder what the heck made it sticky in the first place… too many meals eaten at the computer I guess…


Jena September 28, 2012 at 10:01 am

I love it when my neice comes over to hang out! She’s 8, so she’s at a fun age (mouthy, but fun). I haven’t seen downtown abbey – I’ve heard of it, but no idea what it’s about. I have Hulu+ .. it’s worth $8 to me since we don’t have regular cable, plus I like to be able to watch shows whenever – I can’t always sit in front of the TV for 2hrs at a time (hello grey’s anatomy & scandal) ..


Ellie@Fit for the Soul September 28, 2012 at 10:42 am

hahhaa that is soo funny! That’s kind of like my mom EVEN THESE DAYS :P Some things never change~oh and if you’re in for a reaaaallly good laugh, look at this video of things that asian moms say! haha. I have a right to laugh because I’m Korean myself ;)


Ellie@Fit for the Soul September 28, 2012 at 10:43 am woops, here it is :P Except my mom is sweet and nice


Katie @ Peace Love & Oats September 28, 2012 at 11:12 am

Haha I love that no boys allowed means he can’t even be in the house! At least he gets to hang out with his COOL aunt. And um, I watched the entire second season of Downton Abbey straight through, stayed up until 1am Sunday night. Dedication.


Sam @ Better With Sprinkles September 28, 2012 at 11:24 am

I definitely hadn’t heard of her before but that’s pretty hilarious!


Natalie @ Free Range Human September 28, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Oh gosh….please just have tissues when you watch Grey’s.


Lisa September 28, 2012 at 12:53 pm

My m key has been sticking and its driving me mental!!! It types multiple m’s all the time…first world problems.
I love that quote!
Have a happy weekend!


Tina @ Best Body Fitness September 28, 2012 at 1:52 pm


next Fun Fact Friday I will be WITH you! *happy dance*


Kathy September 28, 2012 at 2:03 pm

That’s a great idea with the Hulu Plus. I just might have to do the same exact thing…


Brittany @Berries and Barbells September 28, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I just started watching The New Normal and I love it so far!! I still haven’t seen Downtown Abby but everyone raves about it. I will just have to give it a try.


Chelsie @ Balance, Not Scale September 28, 2012 at 3:44 pm

I love that you’re the cool aunt!! I hope someday I get to be the cool aunt! (However, from the looks of it now, I might not even EVER be an aunt, nonetheless a cool one. Boo!)
Enjoy your weekend!!


Kristen @ notsodomesticated September 28, 2012 at 5:10 pm

I don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy anymore, but judging by what all of my facebook friends said, it was a very disappointing episode! Hope you don’t feel the same!


Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries September 28, 2012 at 5:35 pm

I tried to start watching Downton Abbey last night, buuuut I fell asleep halfway through the first episode – at 7 PM, mind you. Ha! So much for that idea. I’m going to try again this weekend because I think I’d like it… wish me luck!


Caralyn @ glutenfreehappytummy September 28, 2012 at 6:26 pm

TGIF for realz indeed :)


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 28, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Haha I’ve totally watched an entire season of a tv show in a week – there’s no shame in that at all. ;)

I need to catch up on Grey’s too! But not tonight… it’s 9:30 and I already feel like I could go to bed!


Natalie @ southern fit foodie September 29, 2012 at 8:37 am

I don’t know if I’ve ever been more thankful for the weekend!!!!


Emily @ September 29, 2012 at 9:54 am

So glad your space bar is fixed! : )


Jen@HealthyFoodandFamily September 29, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Spent the day catching up on the same shows, I’m content :)


Amber K September 29, 2012 at 6:50 pm

If anyone looked at my DVR schedule they would think I did nothing else but sit and watch TV. I swear I do other stuff! Sometimes ;)


lindsay @ fuel my family September 29, 2012 at 9:11 pm

I am totally excited for fall, not jsut for pumpkin, but for all my shows coming back on!


Lyric @ cheap budget expensive beauty October 1, 2012 at 3:24 am

I agree!! Especially for 90210 amd Gossip Girl!!


Mia October 1, 2012 at 11:50 am

I stopped watching Grey’s many seasons ago, when my master’s classes got switched from Monday nights to Thursdays one semester. Given the raves on FB, I may have to watch them all on Netflix then start watching again this season!

Argh! The New Normal and Up All Night…so awesome, right?!


Beks October 1, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Love Anita Renfroe! I’ve actually met her. She’s pretty nice. Women of Faith conferences with her are a BLAST!
