Another Fun Numbers Day

by Courtney on June 6, 2012

Today is another fun numbers day! 6/6/12 —— 6 + 6 = 12

Did anyone else catch that one yet? And, believe it or not, it’s currently 8:26am as I type this —— 8 = 2 + 6.

No idea why I get such a kick out of playing with numbers, but it’s so much fun.

Speaking of fun…let’s talk about this breakfast.

Actually, I don’t necessarily know if I’d call it fun, but it sure was good and full of variety.

Scrambled eggs with ketchup, banana bread + Justin’s honey PB, and a white peach. I’ve always loved the white peaches and nectarines but tend to only get them on occasion because they’re like, at least a dollar more expensive and I’m cheap.

This was also, sadly, the very last piece of banana bread. Jay actually helped me eat this one this time (as he said, “it doesn’t have that “spongy” taste that some of your other healthy stuff has” <—pshh!) so we worked through this loaf pretty quickly.

Looks like I may need to try and whip something else up sometime this week…I have been having some fun in the kitchen lately. (P.S. – Somebody needs to make the Buffalo Chicken Pasta ASAP and tell me how much you love it.)

Off to work, then I think it may be yoga time…by the way, how’s everyone doing on their June Yoga Challenge so far?

Don’t forget – we’ll be linking up on Friday, so be sure to get your recap posts ready and keep tweeting your progress – #juneyogachallenge – (if you don’t have a blog but still want to participate, email me your recap).

A little birdy also just told me that there mayyyy be a giveaway involved for participants who link up all month.

Juuuuust sayin’. Winking smile

Question for the Morning:

Do you like to play with numbers/play number games?

That buffalo chicken pasta sounds really good! I may have to buy a package of Gardein next time I’m at Publix and give that a go. I’ve been craving buffalo bleu cheese dip for some odd reason, but this sounds like it would fill the craving too!

My fiance likes eggs with ketchup, I’ve always thought it was weird, but I do like salsa on my eggs.

I tried my first Hatha class last night and really liked it. I think I’m going to stick with yoga this time around and go at least once, hopefully twice a week all summer!

I’m very much into numbers like that!!! I love numerology and all things numbers! The funny thing is, I don’t like the number 2 in particular, but for some reason if I look at the clock at night, it’s almost ALWAYS 22:22 in digital numbers. :D I love things like that!

Talk to you on Friday for the update ;-)

Don’t you just love husbands’ comments about healthy cooking? I swear, it’s pure psychological. When my husband doesn’t know it’s healthy, he’s much more likely to enjoy it!

I am also into this numbers thing :) !

Today is my 36th birthday.
3+6=9
9 is the number of the house I recently bought with my boyfriend (lot of work to do there right now!). If that’s not GOOD LUCK, I don’t know what is :) !

And this morning I burned 333 calories running, so there’s the next number 9!

I also love watching at the clock and realizing it is 12:12, for example. Sometimes I purposely wait for the seconds to match, too.

Or, when running, I get so much fun out of it if my pulse matches the calories burned, like 135 and 135 or so.

LOTS of opportunities to find funny numbers for crazy people like us :) .

I am the same way with numbers. I am super pumped because we picked a wedding date that is 7.20.13 and 7 + 13 = 20!

I’m kind of a numbers person. My mom and I both count things … I count the number of letters in words. When she gets bored, she counts the pieces of furniture that touch the ground in any given room. We’re a little crazy ;)

I WILL be trying your buffalo chicken pasta! I was planning to make it tonight, BUT I have leftover lazy lasagna to finish. (<–LOVE that stuff, so I don't want it to go to waste) I can assure you though that I will be making it ASAP because ALL I want my entire pregnancy is pasta. That's it. I will eat it for breakfast, lunch & dessert. This little lady inside of me is a carb lover ;) You know what would pair perfectly with the pasta? (well, at least I think it would..) Corn bread. Yep, for us cornbread lovers annonomous ;)
Nothing like MORE carbs to go with a carb meal!! :)

Haha, I get a kick out of the numbers games too. In our family, we have birthdays that are in all different months but our dates are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, etc. consecutively. I’m obsessed with it. lol

I’ve been on such a banana bread kick lately, too! My favorite is to top it with butter and chocolate chips…haven’t tried PB though. I need to try your recipe and then top it with some peanut or almond butter–I bet it’s delicious.

Have a great day, Courtney….and thanks for checking out my blog! Maybe we can work together in the future for an illustration giveaway on your blog…?

I don’t think I would call myself a BIG numbers person but I tend to be aware of them. I do have to make a wish anytime I catch the clock at 11:11, 2:22, 4:44, ect.!!
I wish I could make the Buffalo Pasta tonight but I already have my meals planned for the week. It however, is going into next weeks meal plan. I already put Franks on everything so I can imagine how good the pasta is. YUM!!

I’m a numbers person and I did notice today’s date! And today is my sister’s birthday too making it slightly cooler. And speaking of my sister, I have another sister who has a birthday of 12/12 so this year it’s 12/12/12, AWESOME!

Our anniversary is 7/11. It doesn’t add up to the year we got married (2010) but it’s still cool in a way. A friend of mine has a birthday 5/11, and another friend is 6/11, then our anniversary is 7/11 and our six year old’s birthday is 8/11. Then my hubby goes and ruins it with a birthday of 9/12. Way to go TJ! hahaha!

Anywho, good to know I’m not the only one.

I do all sorts of weird stuff with numbers – especially the odometer on my car. My mom and I will call each other when we get to a “cool number”. Anything like, “13000″ or “75757″ or “24680″ gets a phone call.

….okay, now I feel weird. Hahaha! :D

I like numbers games. Unfortunately, my birthday doesn’t have any number game to it. :( I like the uniqueness of number games. It’s funny how things match up sometimes.

I like to play with numbers too! My parents were always surprised I didn’t go into a career that was numbers related because I was always so good with them and math and stuff…ehh, no thanks. But I will get a kick out of fun number combinations. :)

I get a kick out of numbers, too! I think it’s gotten to be an unhealthy obsession! For example, my alarms are never set on multiples of 5. I like 2′s and 7′s, so if I tell someone I woke up at 8:42, they think I’m being “SO PRECISE,” or “so very observant/exact.” haha :) and my snooze button is set for 5 minutes, so they’ll always end in 2′s and 7′s! bah…I can’t be the only one :)
