So Chill

by Courtney on July 18, 2012

Codester wanted to wish you all a very Happy Wednesday this morning.


He’s been so chill this morning…I’m just waiting for his inner party animal to bust out some crazy cat sprints up and down the hallway. I’m sure it’ll be any minute now. Winking smile


As soon as I got up this morning, I brewed a batch of iced coffee, poured it into my favorite engagement glass, then let it cool a bit in the fridge while I caught up on some emails and put together a couple of client training plans.


A little while later, it was time to eat…


It’s Waffle Wednesday! (right, Hillary?)


I went with the same combo as Monday and it was just as delicious as I remembered.

It has now officially taken me almost an hour to write this post this morning because I cannot seem to get my brain to focus on one thing. Holy cow…time to buckle down and be productive!

Random Question for the Morning:

What famous person do other people tell you that you most resemble?

Ones I’ve gotten in the past…not all of which I agree: Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years, Alicia Silverstone, and Leighton Meester

I had waffles topped with yogurt this morning – such a good combination! I can see the Winnie Cooper resemblance – gosh I used to LOVE that show!

Leighton definitely! I don’t think I look like any…but Alyson Hannigan was mentioned once…

5 Cat @ Breakfast to Bed July 18, 2012 at 9:13 am

you could be Leighton’s double. For reals. Even your body type.

I get Emmy Rossum. I think it’s the nose. Or the curly hair….when I let it go curly.

I ALWAYS get Alicia Silverstone!! Weird…she must have common genes or something lol


7 Jill D. July 18, 2012 at 9:15 am

I get Brooklyn Decker all the time!! Or Reese Witherspoon.


8 Courtney July 18, 2012 at 10:17 am

Oooo, just from looking at your gravatar, I could see that!


9 Faith @ For the Health of It July 18, 2012 at 9:18 am

I could see all of those stars in you, all rolled into one.

My ex told me I looked like Amy Adams (when I had red hair). I wasn’t to thrilled since the movie we were watching (the fighter) had her portrayed as kind of a schlub.


10 Courtney July 18, 2012 at 10:19 am

Haha…I’m a celebrity mash-up! ;)
And besides Amy Adams in that movie (I agree, sort of schlub, lol) she’s super cute! :)


11 Erica { } July 18, 2012 at 9:19 am

Punky Brewster. Seriously. Not the actress, the 6 year old fictional character.

Sometimes Alanis Morresette or Shannon Doughtery.

18 Ashley @ Sweat for Sweets July 18, 2012 at 9:49 am

You are definitely a Leighton Meester look alike .. but I think you’re more pretty! ;)

I’ve been told I resemble Taylor Momsen (without the crazy eye make up/gothic look) and a much younger version of Naomi Watts!

19 Katie July 18, 2012 at 9:50 am

OK I’ve gotten some weird ones too.
-Someone once told me I look like Katie Holmes. I’ll take it!
-One of my subcontractors @ work once told me that everyone in HIS garage thinks I look like Jennifer Garner and they call me Jen when they “talk about me” (ok, creepsters). Wasn’t thrilling b/c I think she looks funny, but if she can pull Ben Affleck, I’ll take it!
-Just last night when we were watching Watch What Happens Live, my bf told me that I have the “same shape face” as Tiffani Thiessen. Lol. I’ll take that, too!

Just an FYI, I’m not trying to be all “ooh, I’m cute, I’m cute”–I really don’t even resemble any of these lovely ladies!


20 Danica @ It's Progression July 18, 2012 at 9:52 am

I’ve actually never been told that I look like a celebrity! Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing? haha I definitely see how people could think you look like Leighton Meester though.

21 Lauren B. July 18, 2012 at 10:01 am

Recently, I’ve gotten several comments that I look just like January Jones from Mad Men. I’ve also gotten Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Garner a few times. Oh, and the news anchor on Fox News- Meghan something. It’s always fun to hear the different perceptions!


22 Hillary {Nutrition Nut on the Run} July 18, 2012 at 10:03 am

hehe, yes it is certainly waffle wednesday!! i just finished my 2 toaster waffles topped with almond butter, banana, cinnamon, honey and pumpkin seeds :) :)


23 Whitney July 18, 2012 at 10:04 am

I’ve only gotten Kelly Ripa…don’t think that’s accurate but I’ll take it because she’s one tough momma! :)


24 Kelli July 18, 2012 at 10:05 am

I can see the Leighton and Winnie resemblances but not overwhelmingly similar. I always have people telling me that I look like Alanis Morrisette. I would add a picture if I knew how to do it!


25 Willemijn @ Run Eat Travel July 18, 2012 at 10:13 am

I got Hilary Duff for many years! Even a look alike iPhone app said I look like her!

28 Catherine July 18, 2012 at 10:34 am

over the years (I’m 22), I’ve gotten a young Elizabeth Taylor from old men. which I’m happy with because she was very pretty. Young people agree with that if for some reason it comes up, I guess younger generations don’t really think of her in her young years though.

From younger people I’ve gotten Christina Aguilera when she is all CLEAN and looks good haha and also Demi Lovato.


29 Suzanne @ Fit Minded Mom July 18, 2012 at 10:38 am

I wrote a blog about this question not long ago.

I have been told on numerous occasions that I look like Victoria Justice from the Nickelodeon show “Victorious”. I can see some resemblance maybe but the fact that she is 14 years younger than me kind of throws it off in my opinion!!

32 Kaelin July 18, 2012 at 10:45 am

Love waffles!! Today it was an overnight oats morning though.

I really get told I look like anyone or remind people of someone they know, but there have been several people who have told me I look like Faith Hill and Amanda Righetti (the redhead on The Mentalist and The O.C.). I am not quite sure about either of them, but they are both beautiful so I will take it! Haha


33 Kaelin July 18, 2012 at 10:45 am

*rarely not really


34 Jennifer @ Healthy Wifestyles July 18, 2012 at 10:49 am

I’ve been told I look like Jennifer Garner or Shannen Elizabeth (I don’t really see either!). When I was younger, I was told I looked like Molly Ringwald (hello, awkward!!) and sometimes get Lisa Loeb just because I wear glasses.

You could also pass for Minka Kelly!!

Side note – I clicked through to your engagement glass post and onto your wedding website, and we have the same website theme and layout (only with different colors) :)

I haven’t eaten waffles for years now that I think about it.. haha it’s never something I think about having in the morning! I should definitely get back on that because I sued to love them as a kid!

I get Sandra Bullock a lot!


40 Lauren July 18, 2012 at 11:41 am

Hi Courtney! I just found you through Twitter and am really enjoying your blog! I too have been told I look like Alicia Silverstone (she must have universal features ;-)), but the main one I get told is Michelle Pfeiffer.


41 Courtney July 18, 2012 at 11:51 am

Hi Lauren! Welcome to the blog – thanks for checking it out!
(and yes, I could see the Michelle Pfeiffer resemblance!) ;)


42 Erica @ For the Sake of Cake July 18, 2012 at 11:42 am

I’ve been told Jenna Fischer multiple times!

Not a celebrity, but whenever you post a picture of your friend Joelle, I always think “man, I look a lot like her!” haha I’ve showed my husband & he’s like ehhh, not so much, but I think so! :-)

I was wondering where do you buy your chia seeds and what is a good brand of waffle to eat.

I got my chia seeds from GNC, and the waffles I have right now are Eggo Nutrigrain Honey and Oat. I also love Van’s waffles too


52 Jillian @ Sprinkle Massacre July 18, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Leighton Meester! Yes- I totally see it! I get Blake Lively a lot…so we’re both Gossip Girls! :)

I also get Jennifer Aniston (only when my hair is up for some reason) and Brittany Snow.

53 Sam @ Better With Sprinkles July 18, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Interesting question!

When I was younger (like 14-15) I got Julia Stiles from her Ten Things I Hate About You era. I haven’t heard any in the last several years though – I guess I’m unique!

One of my friends more or less is Kat Dennings (Two Broke Girls, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist). Looks, sounds and acts exactly like her – I’m convinced it’s a long list twin sort of situation.

Awww hi, Cody! Scout is also chill today. He’s learned how to toss his toy mice in the air and kinda play fetch with himself when I’m doing other stuff. Except it’s so adorable that I end up stopping to play with him! Sneaky fella.

My cheerleaders used to say I looked like Jennifer Aniston (well, “Rachel from Friends”), but I think we just have the same coloring.
