fun facts friday

May 2, 2014

1. I have been having fun trying a lot of new recipes lately. My favorite?? Firecracker Chicken. Oh my gosh, you guys – it is THE BEST. I’m thinking about trying this Mexican chopped salad next week. Yum!

2. I started doing T25 last week. I’ve had kind of a rough start (a few busy weeks with work), so I am going to try to do a better job of sticking with the workouts next week. I really like them though – 25 minutes? I can do 25 minutes! (ps – I bought the program myself and any sort of review I give it is my own)

3. My next Stitch Fix is coming in 14 days – eeeeek! I am so excited I could burst. (side note: that is a referral link. If you sign up for Stitch Fix, you also get your own referral link to share with your friends!) I asked them to focus on summer clothes that i could wear while being out and about with the girls. I’m so excited to see what I get.

4. Is it me or does it seem like a ridiculous amount of bloggers are having babies? I think the months of April and May are super busy with new mommies! John’s cousin just had a baby a few weeks ago too, and I swear I don’t remember the girls being that tiny. It’s so funny how quickly you forget!

teeny tiny baby girls – they are SO much different now!

5. I bought a new powder foundation after reading one of my favorite blogs last week (hair do’s, makeup, and babies – some of my favorite things!). It’s by Tarte, and it’s just a little bit heavier than the Bare Minerals foundation I have been using for years.

6. The weekends in May are so busy this year! I’m out of town this weekend, next weekend is Mother’s Day, I have two weddings the following weekend, and then it’s Memorial Day! Talk about crazy!

7. You may or may not know my strong deep love for proper grammar. I know I make mistakes too, but improper grammar irks me to no end (even when I am the culprit). I want to buy this t-shirt.


Anyway, one thing that always gets me is "who versus whom". In fact, every year when I have to teach that to my 5th graders, I end up more confused than ever. One of my teammates found this video about who vs. whom – AND IT WORKS. I will never forget this trick ever for as long as I live.

8. Happy Friday!

I’ve heard really good things about T25. I think this may be my savior when trying to get back into shape post baby.

Hope you are well lady! Miss you always!

Bad grammar irks me too! Also, nothing gets me more fired up than when adults write like this – “how r u” or “wuts up”…ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

And I’m doing T25 as well! Just finishing up week 2 but loving it so far!

I’m a grammar nerd, too. I work in call quality, and frequently have to correct people’s grammar. I think it’s actually made me a bit twitchy. *twitch*


Linz @ Itz Linz May 2, 2014 at 8:06 am

haha i HATE improper grammar and spelling! my sister was joking around the other day on a group family text and was saying how she was so much smarter “then phil” (her husband) and i was like yeah not when you use the incorrect form of “than!” lol


Katie @ Peace Love & Oats May 2, 2014 at 8:44 am

I got a free stitch fix box (I think klout?) but they said they couldn’t send me my first box until June (this was like a month ago) because they were so backed up! DYING!

Oh gosh what a sweeeeeeeeeeeet pictures of those girls <3 Adorable.

And NEED that grammar shirt. Holy cats, so accurate!


Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl May 2, 2014 at 9:23 am

I totally need that shirt. I definitely judge people based on the way that they write and speak….which is probably not the greatest thing to do, but I cannot help it!


Brittany (Healthy Slice of Life) May 2, 2014 at 11:11 am

I’m thrilled it’s May and finally time to have this BABY! :)

Also, pinned that firecracker chicken since you say it’s so good. Looking forward to trying it!


Lauren @ Focused To Be Fit May 2, 2014 at 11:31 am

T25, oh yes. Bad grammar, oh no!! TGIF


Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries May 2, 2014 at 12:27 pm

I was just thinking the same thing about new babies being everywhere lately. It seems to totally go in spurts!

I’m with you on the grammar thing! I think I used to be worse, but it still bugs me to no end.

Aaaand I hope you show us your Stitch Fix goods!


Shel@PeachyPalate May 2, 2014 at 1:43 pm

Hope you enjoy your weekend of glamping!! That chicken looks AWESOME!


Amber K May 2, 2014 at 5:14 pm

Who or whom? Awesome! Now I’ll always know. Glad to see you blogging again :)


Erika May 2, 2014 at 6:02 pm

Lol I’ve always had issues with who vs whom too!


Erica @ For the Sake of Cake May 3, 2014 at 6:47 am

It drives me nuts when people use certain words/phrases incorrectly. It’s like nooo, that’s not right! lol After taking a year away from teaching English, I’m back on the hunt for a teaching job–definitely pinned that YouTube video for future reference!


Sarah@creatingbettertomorrow May 3, 2014 at 7:15 am

LOVE T25! You should try 21 day fix next – it is 30 minutes a day and comes with food containers to help you with portion control.

Let me know what you think about your new makeup – I use bare minerals right now but need a bit more (just too intimidated with allthe choices!) coverage.


Jenn@Mark My Miles! May 4, 2014 at 4:54 am

Ha! Love that video. My husband has the same annoyance. I could be crying and emotional and using wrong grammar and he can’t help but correct me AND THEN comfort me…lol.


Presley @ Run Pretty May 7, 2014 at 10:05 am
