Fun Facts Friday {4/25}

by Courtney on April 25, 2014

1. I can’t tell you how many times in a day/week I type “Thank You.” And out of those times that I type it out, I’d have to say that at least 95% of the time I wind up typing THank you and need to go back and fix the “H.” I need to lay my finger off the darn shift key, apparently.

2. I think I may be just as obsessed with the White Chocolate Raspberry Quest bars as I am the Cookie Dough ones. Man, they are good.

3. Sooo, I got a spray tan on Wednesday night in an effort to ward off the “pasty” look I’ve been sporting for this video shoot I have going on today. Weeelll, let’s just say that my right hand and palms have seen better days.

I guess my near-perfect track record with spray tans has been put to an end. Oooof.

4. Not gonna lie…I also felt like a bit of a celebrity yesterday as I got picked up to go to the train station for my trip down to NYC.

I was shocked when I walked outside my house yesterday to see a full size limo waiting for me in the driveway. Now, call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure I could get used to that. As a side note, I’m going to try to Instagram a bit while I’m down here today, so be sure to follow me!

5. For the past few days, I have been craving a burger from Ship’s Pub. I don’t know why, but all I know is that I need one. Like, this weekend. Mmmmkay, Jay?? And then I’d like to top it off with this dessert. Oh, heck yes.

6. I cannot wait to get back home tonight and see my Lucas. Yes, it’s been less than 24 hours, but I miss that sweet boy to pieces.

Oh yeah, and he loves bubbles.

7. The amount of new hair growth I have on my head right now is unreal. (It’s all starting to grow back now, after the ungodly amount that fell out shortly after Lucas was born). I feel like it just looks like I took a pair of scissors to my hairline and went to town.

8. This week got crazy busy on me, and I have zero opportunities for any workouts. These days, it looks like I’m more of a “weekend workout warrior,” but I suppose that’s better than nothing, right? Someday I’ll get back in my groove. Someday!

9. I spent too much time typing some of this post up on the train and am now dealing with the inevitable motion sickness I knew would happen. Blech! Time to close the eyes…

Have a fabulous Friday, my friends! Check ya later Winking smile

I am equally obsessed with the White Chocolate Raspberry Quest bars. But you have to try the cookies and cream. Think Quest bar + Oreos…so good!

How fun to be whisked away in a limo! Looks like the trip is lots of fun.

Hope your trip is going well. I’m so tempted to get a spray tan right now seeing as I’ve never been this pasty in my life. You never know how it will turn out though so it’s always a little nerve-wracking.

Safe travels back home hun!

Have a great trip in NYC!

How was your first night away from the baby?! I have a nearly 14 month old and I still havent’ had the opportunity to get away yet. I want to, but I’m also nervous.

17 Angie @ Pint of Goals April 25, 2014 at 11:12 am

My new hair growth is in the same place! It looks like I’m growing bangs :( The hairs are finally getting long enough that they blend into my other hair but every so often a chunk sticks straight out. Ugh! I miss my thick, lucisous hair when I was pregnant.
Have a great weekend!

I’m still working on that new hair growth on my head too. Fortunately, it’s gotten to a point that they aren’t “horns” and I can hide them in the rest of my hair. Ha!

I’ve always been nervous to get a spray tan. I think I’ve heard too many horror stories to attempt one!

Looking forward to hearing all about your NYC adventures!

White Chocolate Raspberry= two thumbs up! I have been on the double chocolate chunk kick lately but my next box I’m going to have to go back to WCR. Do you spray tan in a machine or have the lady spray you? I have always done it where someone sprays you and it always comes out great!

You made me laugh out loud at least three times! Yay for hair growth, do you know how many people take pills to help their hair grow? Be delighted! :) Hope your not missing the little man too much…and when you get a burger craving…it NEEDS to be satisfied!

Congrats on your video shoot! I am sure riding around in a limo is something anyone can get used to =) I completely understand your dilemma with the workouts, except for one day, I haven’t worked out for the past week and a half. I know you can’t wait to get home and see Jay and Lucas!

24 Sarah @ Sarah Sincerely April 25, 2014 at 5:55 pm

I always think I can squeeze in a bit of work before the motion sickness sets in – I’m usually wrong. :-( What a fun way to kick off your NYC weekend!
