Birthdays, Race Photos, Winners & Frosting Happiness

Hey hey hey!!! Looks like we all made it to Friday! Finally! Sheesh. This week lasted forever. But all that matters is that we made it…and that it’s time for Fun Fact Friday! Boy do I have some good ones for today.

Most importantly…

Today is Makenzie’s 3rd birthday!!

That news makes me a) teary, b) happy, and c) shocked. I don’t know how three years have passed already, but I do know that she enriches my life beyond measure. Except for maybe during temper tantrums??? Who am I kidding? Even then I love the heck out of her and can’t wait to celebrate her birthday! Princess

And speaking of birthdays – I’m a terrible party planner. Makenzie’s party is TOMORROW and I have not a clue what I’m doing for food. We have the cake, but as for princess snack ideas….I’m at a loss. Decorations? You know they will be standard princess plates from the party store. Which I still need to pick up. Oops!


I wish I wasn’t so awful at party planning because I would happily host all of the following parties I have always wanted to attend:

  • a murder mystery dinner party
  • an 80s party
  • a Halloween/costume party
  • a tacky Christmas sweater party

I must have an underlying desire to dress up in crazy outfits. And I’m sure my friends are all breathing a sigh of relief that I hate party planning right now.

Peter killed Barbie.


Yes. A few days ago, I drove up to our house with that starting at me. I seriously considered getting back in my car and driving away. I knew an ugly scene awaited me behind our doors. At least I know I’m the favorite parent now. Winking smile 

Jewelry hates me.


I could never get my ears pierced because I would inevitably get a terrible infection no matter what I tried. Necklaces always make me feel like I’m wearing a turtleneck. Now even my wedding rings are revolting against me! What is with that nasty, burning rash where my rings go?!

I do not take attractive race pictures.


Then again…does anyone?

When doing a run on the treadmill yesterday, I stumbled across a question in Shape that claimed 22% of women would rather have their dream body than a million dollars. Interesting. Very interesting.

Not gonna lie – if by dream body they mean one that will stay perfectly healthy on the inside and fit on the outside AND allow me to eat a giant cupcake every day without it changing a thing…I would go for the body.


Money can’t buy happiness. Frosting can. I can’t wait to see how many people take me serious.

I feel insanely happy right now. And, no, that is not code for “I just ate a tub of frosting”. I’m just…happy. I hope you are too. Red heart

  • What type of party have you always wanted to throw/attend?
  • Would you choose the body or $1 million?

Seven! Seven! Seven!!!!!

A couple of my favorite bloggers – Chelsey and Heather – have a fun little Friday tradition. Fun Facts Friday! It gives a little glimpse into their lives and I always look forward to reading them. Then, Lindsay tagged me with a Blissful Blogger award which calls for sharing 7 fun facts.


I guess it was just meant to be that I play along with Fun Facts Friday. Winking smile

The number seven always makes me think of the scene from FRIENDS where Monica and Rachel teach Chandler about erogenous zones. Seven. Seven. Seven! Seven!!! SEVEN!!! Ha. Loves it!

You should never joke about having a black eye. Karma will get ya. On Wednesday, I somehow opened my car door right into my face and busted my lip.


Thankfully, it looks only slightly bruised now. And you’re welcome for sparing you the bloody, scabbed picture.

I still love the grilled sandwich combo of pepperjack cheese, tomato, and hummus.


It looks so delicious, but it never fails that I burn the bottom half.


Who can’t cook a grilled cheese sandwich? Apparently this girl.

I want to find these pumpkin bagels.

I can’t get them out of my head! I have searched high and low – Publix or Kroger, bread section or refrigerated section. They must live in some bagel vortex. It makes me sad. Do you know where I can get some?

I watched my first episode of Modern Family three weeks ago.


I love it. I want to find these illusive pumpkin bagels and sit on the couch and watch the entire first season straight through. That show is downright funny!

These came in the mail for me yesterday.

I’m all  kinds of excited. Peter told me he subscribed for me when he found a TWO DOLLAR subscription. How does he always find these crazy good deals?! Oh, yea. The Slickdeals website.

I’m working with Love Grown as a Love Blogger!


Have been for awhile…yet it somehow keeps slipping my mind to a) tell you and b) figure out how to get that picture into a widget on my sidebar. Ohhh, Peterrrrr!!!

  • What’s something that should be ridiculously easy to do, but you can never seem to get just right?
  • What’s a newly discovered love for you? Mine = Modern Family and Runner’s World. And front loaders.
