Fun Facts Friday {5/17}

1. I can’t start out today’s post without saying thank you for all of your incredibly supportive and insightful comments on yesterday’s post. Although I haven’t had the time to respond to many comments, I’m still reading each and every one of them, and I appreciate them so, so much. You are all incredible.

2. On Wednesday, I received a lovely little shipment from Larabar with their new ALT bars. Yesterday I tried out the Cinnamon Apple Crisp flavor and I. Am. In. Loooove.


Today I’m testing out the Lemon Pound Cake. Super psyched.

3. I can’t help but feel a little bit sad about this coming weekend…it’s the second Blend Retreat, and I won’t be there. Boooo. Last year’s retreat was so much fun and probably my favorite blog conference I’ve ever attended.

It also didn’t hurt having Tina and Alyssa as my buddies the whole weekend either. 😉

(If you’re interested,  you can check out all of last year’s recaps HERE)

4. I feel like today is going to be one of those days where my hunger is just through the roof. Just sayin’.

5. For the past two weeks, I’ve reinstated Coffee Friday. DD’s iced decafs with 1 pump each of caramel and french vanilla is where it’s been at.

6. Want a good, quick core workout for today? Try out this one, which I actually put together exactly a year ago today. I’d do it too but, ya know, hardcore core work isn’t really my thang these days…so do an extra set for me, mmmkay?

7. Although I’m not doing a ton of core work nowadays, I DID manage to get moving with a walking workout yesterday after work! I found myself with a little extra energy, so I decided to take advantage and hopped on the treadmill for a 3-mile walk while catching up on some magazines. I’m so thankful to still be able to keep up some moderate exercise at 31 weeks preggo.


Codeman was right there waiting for me to finish, of course.

8. The week of sudden, intense cravings continues. Last night, I was struck with a neeeeed for eggs, so I made some for dinner.


Two scrambled eggs with loads of spinach and feta cheese, along with a mini baked sweet potato, topped with fruit salsa and a little light sour cream. I don’t know if eggs had ever tasted so darn good.


9. Tomorrow I have plans to hit up the outdoor Farmer’s Market with my bestie, Heather. Can’t wait to see what kind of goodies they have now that it’s back outside. There’s always SUCH a better selection.

10. I am currently addicted to the app Candy Crush on my iPhone. Have you guys played it yet? Try it, please. Or don’t…if you don’t want to become obsessed. (Thank you, Chelsey, for fueling this obsession).

11. I think I’ve run out of facts for today…

Happy FRIDAY, everyone! Have a great day and weekend! :)

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE Candy Crush! I am totally addicted, though this week I’ve been playing a ton of Angry Birds friends (along with some of the other Angry Birds games).

    Today shall not be a fun day, as I have to take my daughter to the Ortho so she can get her cast on. She fell from the monkey bars and broke her arm on Tuesday. :(

    Hope you can get your hunger under control, I always hated those days because, no matter what I ate, I was hungry and that made me cranky.

    I didn’t get a chance to comment on your post from last night but I second all of the incredible support! You are right on with how you feel and so amazing to share that!
    Ah, did I seriously just read 31 weeks??? Where have I been? I can’t believe the little one is going to be here so so soon! :)

  3. says

    Happy Friday!! Those bars look amazing!! I know you have been to HLS and I was thinking of going this year. First time since I just started blogging in January but I would love to meet the bloggers I read everyday. Have a great weekend!

    I love Candy Crush, been playing it for about a year. I’m addicted!! My Husband calls it the Jelly Bean game, he thinks I’m crazy because I’m always playing. 😉

    Oh Candy Crush :-( I was so addicted to that game I had to get rid of it LOL. I woke up thinking about those darn little candies. Loved it too much

  6. says

    I love how pets seem to always be there when you’re trying to get things done. I was trying to do PT exercises for my knee and Elmo was in other rooms the entire morning until I started doing them. OF COURSE. Lol just like a kid. 😉

    Have a great Friday!

  8. says
