I Like It All

by Courtney on December 30, 2011

This morning, I spent some time doing a little bit of housekeeping on the main blog page here, so you may end up noticing a few differences. I also updated my “Featured Recipes,” which include three of my favorites from 2011. After that, I ended up wasting about 10 minutes laughing WAY too hard at funny New Years Eve pictures. Don’t ask me why…I really have no idea.

Some of them are not exactly appropriate to share (there are some ca-raaaaazy peeps out there!) but some of them were rather amusing. This card in particular totally has my name written all over it…

I feel like we (as in Jay and I) are always such last minute planners. Not necessarily when it comes to bigger events like NYE, but definitely for a typical Friday night. We’ll spend a good hour just trying to decide what to do for dinner and then spend another hour figuring out if we want to make it ourselves or go out. Oy vey. Perhaps a resolution of mine for 2012? ;)

Some other funny ones I came across…

That someecards site totally cracks me right up! :)


This morning when I was putting together my lunch, I was *this close* to making myself some sort of yogurt mess. It sounded good, but not as appealing as it usually does. But then as I was grabbing something else out of the fridge, I spotted all of my leftover spaghetti squash from Tuesday’s dinner.

How in the world could I have forgotten about (let alone missed) the two huge containers of it staring right back at me from my top fridge shelf? Sometimes I wonder…


I portioned out a big ‘ol serving of spaghetti squash and topped it with some shredded carrot (random?), steamed spinach (almost half of a bag!), some shriveling grape tomatoes, marinara sauce, and a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese.


Once it was heated in the microwave and the cheese got all super-creamy on me, this meal turned out to be one big ‘ol bowl of awesome. I also ended up snacking on an orange and some Pretzel Crisps.


I still can’t believe that Jay and I already have our dinner plans figured out for tonight (homemade pizza). Now I’ve just got to decide on a Redbox movie. I’m going back and forth between 3 different ones…all of which are total opposites:

Yeah, what can I say…I like it all. ;)

Has anyone seen any of the above movies? What would you recommend??

The Change Up is hilarious!!! Only one I’ve seen of the three but if you’re in the mood to laugh its a good one!


2 Sarah December 30, 2011 at 2:07 pm

The Help! I loved that movie!


3 Lena @Fit on the Rocks December 30, 2011 at 2:09 pm

I personally loved The Help, but I’m not sure how big of a fan Jay will be :P I haven’t seen the other two, but I (finally) saw Crazy Stupid Love and really enjoyed that!

The Help is FANTASTIC. Have you read the book? The movie does an incredible job of following the story!

The change up is funny if you’re in the mood for a lot of inappropriate material with a lot of boobage. The help is SO good!

The Change Up!!!

do NOT watch Straw Dogs! it is traumatizing..but the other two are both very good!


8 Kristin December 30, 2011 at 2:21 pm

The Change Up was pretty funny at some parts, but super unrealistic (as movies are I guess, ha) but The Help was soooo good! I cried a couple times!
I haven’t seen the other one though.


9 Kristin Mac December 30, 2011 at 2:22 pm

The Help was so so good! Not sure if it’s much of a guy movie though. Maybe go with The Switch Up if you’re both watching :)


10 Jolynn December 30, 2011 at 3:18 pm

I’ve never seen the first two but the Change Up is hilarious!


11 Kelsey December 30, 2011 at 3:19 pm

The Help is sooooooooooooo good! Def my fav out of the 3! :)

I think the first and last someecards are funny. The third kind of seemed offensive a little bit.

I haven’t seen any of those movies but…I have heard great reviews about The Help. I actually want to see it too and I want to read the book (when I have time- it’s about 600 pages, I think).

The Help is good and Hunni actually enjoyed it too. He found the jokes funny and the story held his attention.

The Change Up looks funny but I haven’t seen it.

The Help and The Change Up were both good. I have not seen the other one. Did you read “The Help”? It was great and the movie is one of the few book-> movies that actually stys true to the book for the most part. The Change Up is hilarious and is great if you want a night of laughter. Good luck!

Oh my gosh Courtney, you have to see The Help! It is sooo good. If you’ve read the book, you will LOVE the movie!

19 Susan @Happy Hippie December 30, 2011 at 4:28 pm

The Help is absolutely AMAZING, but I think that it’s definitely more of a girl movie than a guy movie. The Change Up is absolutely hilarious though, so I bet you both would love it!

You have to see The Help:)


21 Lindsay @ In Sweetness and In Health December 30, 2011 at 4:53 pm

Bahaha I love the some-ecards website!! I go on there all the time and literally laugh out loud :P. I’ve seen The Help and The Change-Up- both are good but The Help is definitely a better quality movie while the Change-Up is just fun and goofy…plus Ryan Reynolds is in it and he is drool-worthy so that’s always a plus.

“The Help” is a great one, definitely recommend. And my guy, who is a real guy’s guy, really liked it too! “The Change Up” has some funny moments but it is SLIGHTLY crude. But if you’re into that, have at it!


28 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles December 30, 2011 at 6:25 pm

I want to see “The Change Up”- just added it to Netflix to get! …. Those cards are so funny!!!

The Help was a fantastic movie – and I don’t normally like movies, so that says a lot!

How was the carrot in the spaghetti squash? Interesting combo, but it sounds yummy!

The Help, definitely! I agree with everyone else. I watched with my boyfriend too, and he loved it just as much as I did. :D
