fun facts friday

December 14, 2012

1. You know what commercial always makes me laugh? This one. I always am cracking up by the time they get to the soccer player dancing. Just. So. Funny.

2. I have a shopping date with my mom and mother in law after school today. I’m pretty pumped to spend time with the two of them together. We then have a dinner date at Wildfire. Remember when I went there with Tina and got the wine flight? Okay, probably  not because I don’t even think I blogged about it. Meh, that’s neither here nor there. Tina will remember! ;) They have the BEST gluten free menu. Seriously.

3. We have a winnnerrrrr!!! The winner of the pair of Oakley sunglasses is comment #25, Sarah! Sarah, I will be handing your email over to my contact at Sunglasses Shop. She will be in contact with you soon!

4. We’re a week away from winter break folks!! I’m so excited that I can barely contain myself. Next week is filled with all sorts of fun things during the school day too – holiday parties, a talent show (for the 5th graders), our annual secret santa festivities (for the kids), as well as probably a holiday movie. ;)

5. How cute are these nails? I think I’m going to get my nails done tomorrow because we have a wedding to go to. I’d love to get this done!

Christmas nails

6. Speaking of the wedding we’re going to, one of my good friends from my childhood’s little sister is getting married! I’ve known her since she was three, have a lot of embarrassing stories on her, and am so stinking excited for her big day!

7. I’ve totally stuck to my plan of staying active and working out this week. I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty proud of myself!

  • Sunday – 25 minutes of stairmaster and arm workout
  • Tuesday – 3 mile run and some planks
  • Wednesday – 2.5 mile walk with Charlie (when I was contemplating taking a nap)
  • Thursday – this workout that I can already tell I’ll be sore with. Short and sweet!

I’m even planning one more workout for tomorrow. I’m a new person.

7. I’m sooooooo making these on Sunday. Oh, and probably these for breakfast tomorrow.

8. Is anyone else like a flipping child when it comes to Christmas presents? I totally hate it when I’m not surprised, but I spend all my energy trying to figure out what I’m getting. Then if I do figure it out, I’m just mad at myself because I won’t get the adrenaline of being surprised on Christmas morning. Such a debacle.

9. i am SOOOOOO obsessed with the show Parenthood. Why did I never watch this before? I’ve been watching it on Netflix. It’s so stinking good!!!

10. Happy Friday! Have a good weekend!

You’re just now watching Parenthood?! That is SUCH a great show. I love it! Actually hope to catch a recent episode online during nap time today. Shhhh. ;)

And I certainly DO remember our flights that night. Good times. Good times.

Have a fabulous weekend Chelsey! It sounds like you have a fun one planned.

Good thing I read your blog–I forgot today was Friday! I am happy it’s Friday–but I wish I had someone to come clean my house/shop/cook before our company gets here tomorrow.

Okay, we need to go to Wildfire sometime. And I’ve never seen that commercial (no TV…) but I just watched it and definitely started laughing when the soccer player got a red card!

Reply

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Parenthood, but I’ve never watched it. It looks kind of sad!

It isn’t in the season I’m in!

Laura @ Five Focus December 14, 2012 at 9:39 am

Where is Wildfire???? I’ve only ever found 2 places with really good Gluten Free menus.

Parenthood is one of my favourite shows…it’s as close as I can get to reliving Gilmore Girls on a more adult level :)

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey December 16, 2012 at 7:50 am

There are a few locations around Chicago – downtown, schaumburg, oak brook (and a few more I think!)

Lisa December 14, 2012 at 10:05 am

Those nails are adorable. I can’t wait to paint mine festive. Oh yes, I’m a total fellow child when it comes to Christmas presents…actually Christmas in general! Love the holidays! I haven’t seen Parenthood yet! I love Once Upon A Time right now!

flourless coconut chocolate drops not only look amazing but sound heavenly!! YUM
and adore those nails, I need to start doing more with my nails as I usually keep them plain, so that is boring and I need to jazz them up some ;)

cleaneatingchelsey December 16, 2012 at 7:51 am

I figured it’s the holidays so I might as well!

I’ve been really wanting to watch the show Parenthood – I think it’s going to be my next “project” after I’m done rewatching all the episodes of LOST haha.
