fun fact friday

November 30, 2012

1. Return of the Grammar Nazi (aka, me!)….

2. I’ve read a few good posts the past few days. One of them that stuck out to me is this one that Caitlin linked to yesterday. While it’s about what a divorced husband did that blew his marriage, I think it’s a good reminder to EVERYONE that is married to take time out and take time to work on thing. Guys and Gals alike!

3. You know my cousin whose daughter is my adorable blonde hair blue eyed asian goddaughter, Mia? She’s pregnant again! Baby #2 is due on June 9. Babies are like seeping out of my family’s pores. For real.

4. Last night I got much needed highlights and a haircut by my very talented sister in law, Kelly. My hair was starting to aggravate me every single time I tried to do it. Ugggh split ends ruin lives.

5. Only three more weeks until winter break! Thankfully it’ll go extremely fast with a lot of fun plans thrown within those weeks – holiday parties, housewarming parties, dinners, a wedding, a shopping date with my mom and mother in law… woohoo!

6. Um, is this not the most beautiful baby you’ve ever laid your eyes upon?

7. It’s supposed to be like 60 on Monday. Then it’s supposed to snow on Friday. Whaaaat?

8. It’s hurting to type because I did an arm workout today. I’m done here. ;)

9. Tomorrow is December 1. That day always reminds me of when my friend Brie and I (when we were 14) turned on Christmas music, dressed all festively, and danced around my room screaming “It’s December 1st!!!!” Yes, we had no lives. It always brings a smile to my face!

10. Have a great weekend! Happy Friday!

I have a love for grammar/language arts ….I essentially teach it twice a day; one time doing the things the district requires and another on the things I feel are important. Poor kids…..and I don’t feel the least bit sorry for them! :)

cleaneatingchelsey December 2, 2012 at 3:19 pm

I teach outside of what the district deems necessary too – things like their, there, and they’re and your/you’re – SO important!

Wish I got a winter break!

I can’t believe it’s almost December 2012. This entire year just flew by! Craziness!

I’m going to be in Chicago for New Year’s and am really really really hoping that 60 degree weather decides to make an appearance. That would be wonderful! And thanks for linking to that marriage blog post – sooo true!

The year seriously flew. I don’t know where it went.

I love grammar, so I hear ya on that one!!! I need my hair highlighted SO badly…and don’t even get me started on my split end. I pick at them. Drives my husband crazy!! I promised him that I would wait until the baby came to get my hair done, and now I’m super ready! I also can’t get over how cute Brooke is! Happy Friday!

cleaneatingchelsey December 2, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Ummm and I can’t get over how cute Nia is – look at you super mom! You definitely deserved a pampering session!

Sara @ fitcupcaker November 30, 2012 at 7:59 am

December 1st! I can’t believe it. Well I’ve started my xmas shopping so I think I’m good to go! I live in Cincinnati but hopefully we can hold off from the snow. Its about 40 here I think. Not too bad.

No. 9 made me smile. This time of year always reminds me of my bestie. We seemed to always have the most amazing winter adventures. ;)
TGIF!

are you sure you only danced around the room to Christmas music when you were fourteen…? And yes, Brooke is the cutest baby alive.

I love #1! I cannot stand poor grammar. I especially hate when people use double negatives. It makes my ears burn! :( haha

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend! :)

Amanda @ .running with spoons. November 30, 2012 at 8:57 am

Grammar saves lives and split ends ruins them – definitely agree. And you can bet with 99% certainty that I’ll be dancing around to Christmas music tomorrow. It’s kind of tradition to always decorate on the 1st, so… yeah… I kinda can’t wait :D

cleaneatingchelsey December 2, 2012 at 3:27 pm

It’s just the way the world works! :)

haha! I love watching Christmas movies too!

Lisa November 30, 2012 at 10:30 am

Ha ha. I’m a total grammer nazi. Only when I notice my own mistakes though. I’m helpless if I don’t realize my own mistakes. I honestly can’t believe it’s already December tomorrow! So insane how fast the year went by, let’s just hope the world doesn’t end like it’s “supposed to”;) Happy Friday!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey December 2, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Ha! I highly doubt it will.

Missy November 30, 2012 at 10:45 am

I KNOW! I can barely contain myself with that little Brooke.
I mean, HRG was always a nice highlight to my day and Curly would just kill me with her cuteness but ever since Brook arrived …every picture of that baby just melts me.

And…you’re never too old to be corny. I think you may wanna re-enact the December 1st moment.

Split ends galore on my head…so annoying!

Not to mention i always pick at them – horrible!

Claire @ Keeping Up With Claire November 30, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Split ends ruin lives, and relationships. My ex-boyfriend used to always yell at me for pulling out my split ends. Not that this is what led to the break-up, but we can pretend it did.

hahaha! I loved this.

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin November 30, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Haha you and your best friend at 14 sound like me and my best friend at that age! I’m embarrassed to admit this but one time we both chugged a bottle of Pepsi and then jumped around her basement having a burping contest LOL!

Have a great weekend girl!

cleaneatingchelsey December 2, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Lol!!! Once my cousin and I ate more than 40 pixie ssticks at one time (like all 0f that sugar in my mouth at once) and had a huuuuge sugar rush. Ugh, gross.

Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy November 30, 2012 at 6:42 pm

I love that you and your friend used to do that :) . And yes, Janae’s daughter is adorable. I love all of that hair!

Thanks for your write-up. What I want to point out is that when you are evaluating a good on the internet electronics store, look for a website with complete information on critical factors such as the personal privacy statement, security details, payment procedures, along with other terms as well as policies. Continually take time to read the help as well as FAQ areas to get a much better idea of the way the shop will work, what they can perform for you, and the way you can use the features.

I’m right there with you on the split ends.I think I neglect my hair way too much, especially now that winter is sucking the life out of it! As for the grammar, I completely understand. I sometimes find myself correcting people out loud, which may or may not be extremely obnoxious.

I think everybody who is married or might ever want to be married should read that blog post. This coming from an exwife who could have written it. Good call. And I’m with you on where did this year go???

Um I still dance around to Christmas music on December 1…well this year it was Nov 30 with a little Mad Elf beer (beware…11% is stronger than you think!).

Did I mention I live in the Jewish part of town? People probably thought I was a little cray cray. #dontcare ;)
