Fun Facts Friday {3/28}

by Courtney on March 28, 2014

1. Last night I made THIS for dinner.

Ohhhhh mannnn…I cannot WAIT to share this recipe with you guys. Stay tuned!

2. Lucas turned 8 months old yesterday. Crazy! His latest update is on the Baby Tooth page. Be sure to check it out!

3. Today is breakfast club at work and I decided to make this recipe. It was soooo hard not to just dive in and cut myself a piece of it last night. Hopefully it tastes as good as it looked and smelled.

4. Earlier this week, I received a pretty amazing delivery. I mean, anytime someone leaves 6 pints of ice cream and gelato on my doorstep is honestly gonna be a great freakin day.

Graeter’s is releasing two new lines this spring: Gelato and “A Little Less Indulgent.” The new lines will be launched at select grocery stores, but available to all online. The only flavor I’ve tried so far is the Caramel Truffle Gelato and I will say this…it’ll be gone by tonight. WOW.

5. I’m sorry, but I really cannot stand the phrase “yolk porn.” I don’t understand it, I don’t get it, and it just drives me nutty. And I actually don’t even like runny eggs either, while we’re at it.

6. I finally headed to the doc on Wednesday to check out what’s going on with this sickness of mine. Welp, I’m now on antibiotics, so let’s hope that those babies kick in soon and get rid of this thing for good. More than anything I cannot wait to be able to hear again…my ears have been plugged for a week and leave me constantly sounding like I’m underwater. No bueno.

7. It’s been about a solid two weeks since I’ve worked out, thanks to Lucas being sick, then me. I’m definitely ready to get back into things this weekend.

8. My next Book Club meet up isn’t for another week and a half or so, but I already finished my book this week (this is huge for me, mind you). We’re reading Gone Girl and I’ve gotta say…LOVED the book. Did not love the ending.

9. I’m cutting things short here, my friends. Happy FRIDAYYYY! Have a fab Friday and a wonderful weekend. Get out there and do something fun, mmmkay? Winking smile

I think you don’t understand the “yolk-porn” thing because you “don’t like runny yolks”… You explained it yourself =)

I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about Gone Girl. I loved it and thought the ending was definitely unexpected, but I thought it fit with the way the book was all over the place. Overall it was a great book and I hope the movie can live up to it! (let’s be honest, movies never live up to books…)

I actually hate the yolk in eggs so I don’t get it either. Lucas’s 8 months was so adorable. He is just the cutest little boy!!

Gone Girl is one of my favorite books ever!! I know a lot of people that didn’t like the ending, but I didn’t mind it. You need to check out the authors other two books.

So intrigued to find out about that casserole! And while I love my runny eggs, I try to avoid the ‘yolk porn’ term :-p

Yeah…hate the term yolkporn, too. It definitely doesn’t make me want to dive into a plate of eggs!

What the hell is “yolk-porn?” Is it like food porn of real porn? Oh my gosh…so clueless. But I have to agree, I can’t hop on the runny yolk train, either.

Gone Girl was such a good book but the 2nd half was CR-AZY!

I love eggs but I don’t get the “yolk porn” thing either. It doesn’t make sense. Oh well! I guess maybe because I don’t like “runny” eggs that a lot of them seem to be. That ice cream looks delicious – good thing I have a date with frozen yogurt tonight! :)

Agreed! The ending of Gone Girl is kind of weird. But in a way it is so twisted that it kind of works. I just tried some salted caramel gelato and it was soooo good!

Ugh, Yolk porn. I don’t mind runny yolks, but I think the hashtag is just annoying and a really gross.

But you know what I can get behind? Baked mac and cheese. Cannot wait for the recipe!

1 – Happy 8 Months to Lucas!!
2 – That dinner dish looks amazing. Some type of casserole?? I will keep an eye out for the recipe :-)

Hope you’re feeling supercharged soon missus! Be sure to load up on probiotics whilst you’re at it with those antibiotics! Also hope you took a pic of your breakfast cake contribution!

hahaha blecchhhhh!!! I loooove love runny eggs and all, but to be honest I just detest the word “yolkporn” as well. It just sounds so ugly and irritating. :P I think I just hate any word with the word porn in it because in my mind that stuff is nothing to play with!

And our babes are growing so fast. Someone press the STOP button! I was getting really emotional this morning looking at my 9month daughter and seeing how much I have to be the one letting go of little things–like weaning her sooner or later. It’s all part of life, right? Hope you have a blessed day, Courtney! <3

1. That meal looks delicious, can’t wait for recipe.
2. Put that boy in college! He’s so old! (I can’t believe it!) Jeeze he looks so much taller too, hey?
4. Icecream is my weakness.
5. Ew. That’s all.

Have a wicked weekend!

Lucas is getting so big. Love the legs in the air!

Haha! @ “I actually don’t even like runny eggs either, while we’re at it.” I just recently started liking them, they totally freaked me out before.

The e-card is also great, and so true! Great fun facts!

Hope your weekend is off to a great start-sans stuffy head!

I do not want to think about sex when I’m eating eggs. Especially undercooked ones. Barf. So I feel you on the yolk porn… haha
