Archives for category: Fun Facts Friday

1. I don’t even want to mention the weather right now. It’s supposed to be spring, but it sure doesn’t feel like it.

2. This week seemed to go on and on. I’m so glad it’s Friday.

3. It’s my boyfriend’s birthday this weekend. The plan is to celebrate at the pub tonight.

4. I hate cleaning the bathroom. I’m more than willing to do dishes, dust, mop, and vacuum, but I hate doing the bathroom. Every time I do it I dislike it a little more, but it has to be done.

Rilla of Ingleside March 22 2013

5. I started reading the last book in a series this week. I’m going to be so sad when I finish it. Sometimes you really connect with characters and just don’t want to let go.

6. How is it almost Easter already? It feels like it was only Christmas a couple weeks ago.

7. My current edible obsession is egg salad. I have no idea why, but I’ve been wanting it so much lately, but I’ve had it twice this week. I think I’ve eaten it once or twice in the last year. Weird.

8. Speaking of cravings, yesterday I was talking to my boss about pizza. Now I want it. Bad.

What’s your least favourite household chore? Are you craving anything?

1. We’ve gotten way too much snow in the last week. Like 30+ cm of the stuff. I’m sooooo ready for spring!

2. It’s Friday! is it just me or has this week seemed really long to anyone else?


3. Last week I mentioned something about Footloose to the boyfriend. He laughed and said it had been a long time since he’d seen it. Little does he know I own it, and it might make an appearance during tonight’s date. How can you not love Kevin Bacon dancing out his teenaged angst in a warehouse?

4. I only have another month and a half until I start playing soccer again. I CAN’T WAIT!

5. I’ve been having some really strange dreams lately – everything from aliens on baseball diamonds to racing through cruise ships to save people. What’s going on in my head when I’m asleep?

6. I’ve been listening to an awesome podcast this week at work. I think I’ll be a little sad when I finish the last one.

7. I think I’ve now become an expert at playing tea party. I have a very good teacher in a friend’s three year old daughter.

8. Are you doing anything exciting this weekend? Tell me about it.

1. It’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend. I heard rumours of sun and +10. That makes me happy.

2. It’s March! That means spring is on the way. I can’t wait for the snow to be gone, the grass to be green, and to be able to work in the garden again. I miss that stuff so much.


3. I’ve really been enjoying this the last couple days. The transition from All I Want Is You to Where the Streets Have No Name is amazing. It gives me goose bumps. Every. Single. Time.

4. Tonight is date night. I’m looking forward to it.

5. I made an awesome playlist this week for my ipod. It includes everything from Adele to Silverchair.

6. Yesterday I hung out with a friend. I played tea party with her daughter and then hide and seek. Her daughter makes me smile without even trying.

7. Have a great weekend!

Seeds January 18 2013

1. I’m already thinking of spring. I’m going to be ordering some seeds sooner rather than later. Thinking of planting the garden makes this cold and snow seem a little more tolerable.

2. Dinner + friends + their kids = lots of fun. There were meatballs, dancing, and tasty cookies involved too.

3. I’m getting a haircut this morning. I’ve been putting it off for too long, and finally my hair started driving me crazy so I made an appointment. There’s something about getting your hair cut that makes me feel new and improved, even if I just get a trim.

4. I’m in a reading rut. I’m trying to read a good book, but I keep getting bored after 10 or 15 minutes. It’s not the book, it’s me.

5. I bought goat cheese a couple days ago. It’s almost gone already. It’s sooooo good!

6. I’m the proud owner of Flames tickets. I’m so excited that hockey is back, even if it’s going to be a super short season.

7. That’s it, have a great weekend.

White Chocolate Smartie Brittle

1. My brother brought me back white chocolate Smartie bark from Banff. Does a more delicious thing exist on earth? It’s now gone. Every bite was amazing.

2. My workouts the last two days have been shovelling the driveway. We got a pretty good dump of snow, and I’m hoping it’s over now. I’m definitely feeling it in my arms.

3. I’ve stayed up late the last two nights, and I’m definitely feeling it today. Lack of sleep didn’t use to effect me like this. I feel old.

4. Last night I saw This Is 40 with a friend (the reason why I was up late last night). It’s so funny. If you’re thinking of seeing it, go! After the movie we went to get a beer. I got blueberry beer. It was pretty good.

Pride and Prejudice DVD January 11 2013

5. I got Pride and Prejudice from a friend for Christmas! I haven’t watched it yet, so I’m planning in spending my Friday night with Mr Darcy.

6. It’s short and sweet today. Enjoy your weekend!

Christmas Cards December 21 2012

1. I may or may not have sent my Christmas cards out until this morning. I know they won’t get to their destinations in time, but I think they’ll get there by New Years. Better late than never, right?

2. I’m in a book rut. I finished an amazing book this week, and even though the book I’m reading right now is good, it’s not awesome like the last one was. Boo.

3. I’m going over to a friend’s place for tea this afternoon. I get to hang out with her AND her kids. They make me smile, so you can’t go wrong with that.

4. While the kids are around though, it makes it hard to have “adult” conversations. Her three year old is so smart. It’s amazing how much she picks up when you don’t think she’s listening.

5. We’re supposed to be getting more snow this weekend. I’ll forgive the weatherman because that means we’ll have some fresh white snow for Christmas, and not the grey dirty stuff that’s been around for awhile.

6. Stressing about things and not sleeping well isn’t fun. At all. Hopefully tonight I’ll be able to relax and sleep better. Too bad there isn’t a switch to turn off my brain when I go to bed.

7. I’m pretty sure my socks are disappearing. I’m not sure where they’re going, but I think they got mixed into someone else’s laundry, and they haven’t realized it yet. I hope they turn up soon.

8. Have a great weekend!

Christmas Decorating December 7 2012 (12)

1. It’s definitely feeling like Christmas around here. I put up the Christmas tree and decorated this week.

2. I’m missing soccer like crazy right now. I don’t know what it is, but I desperately want to go out on a field and kick the ball around. I think the best I can do at the moment is watch it on TV.

3. Did you watch the Victoria’s Secret fashion show earlier this week? There was some amazing outfits.

Zoo Lights December 7 2012 (5)

4. The boyfriend and I went to Zoo Lights. It was really pretty. The fire pits were much appreciated to warm up at.

5. The Christmas shopping is in full swing. In fact I think I’m done except for the people who haven’t given me a list yet. Woohoo!

6. It’s short and sweet today. Have a great weekend!

Snow in Tree November 29 2012

1. We got some more snow this week, so there’s been plenty of brushing off cars and shovelling the driveway. I refuse to let myself think that this is just the beginning – that there’s still 4 or so more months of this.

2. I have absolutely no plans for the weekend right now. It’s kind of nice.

3. I made a recipe for my brother yesterday. When he tried it he was amazed that it was so close to the original. Surprisingly, he hasn’t eaten it all yet.

4. Babysitting is hard work. So is reading the same bedtime story 4 times in a row. I guess I can’t complain though, cause I remember wanting to read the same book over and over and over again.

5. I got some Christmas shopping done this week. I feel better now that it’s started.

6. The plan is to go for a walk today for my workout. I’m still pretty sore from workouts earlier in the week, so I thought I’d take it easy today. Hopefully the pretty snow on the trees will make up for the cold.


7. Is it just me, or is Locked Out of Heaven by Bruno Mars being seriously overplayed on the radio? I usually like him, but at the moment I can’t stand that song.

8. That’s it for me today. Have a fun weekend!

1. Even with Thanksgiving on Wednesday, this week has seemed long. The weekend is just about here though, and I’m definitely looking forward to it.

2. Are you doing any shopping today? Even here in Canada there’s some black Friday sales. I don’t have any shopping on the agenda this weekend.

Snowy Trees November 23 2012 (10)

3. I have plans with a friend to go for a walk today. I’m hoping it warms up a bit before we head out. I don’t mind the snow (it’s a good thing, cause there’s lots of it), but being outside for an hour in the cold isn’t so fun.

4. There are lots of Thanksgiving leftovers. My favourite is making a turkey sandwich on sourdough bread. I don’t know what it is about the combination of those flavours, but my mouth loves it.


5. It’s date night! The boyfriend and I are getting Chinese food and beer and watching a movie. We decided on a scary movie, so I’m taking Halloween over. The boyfriend likes to make fun of scary movies, so it’s kind of fun to watch them with him once in awhile.

6. My Christmas list has been made, and it’s been distributed. I have yet to get any Christmas lists from other people though. The Christmas shopping can’t start until I know what they want.

Winter of the World November 23 2012

7. I’m reading this amazing book – it’s the second one in the Century Trilogy. I can’t put it down.

8. Enjoy your weekend!

1. I just finished shovelling the driveway. It took me an hour. There was a lot of snow, even though I shovelled less than 24 hours ago. The snow is supposed to stop coming down by tomorrow. Not a moment too soon if you ask me. On the bright side my arms are definitely got a workout.

2. I started a really good book this week. I plan to get a bunch of reading done this weekend. One of the best things ever is looking forward to getting into a book that you can get totally lost in.

3. I’m looking forward to having a date night with the boyfriend. It’s been put off cause of the weather/bad road conditions, but it’s finally going to happen tonight. Woohoo!

4. I bought something online this week. It’s always exciting when you’re waiting for a package in the mail – even when you know what it is and it’s not a surprise.


5. I’m trying to figure out if I want to see the new James Bond movie. While I think Daniel Craig has the action part of the character down, I don’t see the smooth talking classy part of James Bond in him. Whenever I see him I’m not convinced that he’s James Bond material. However I’ve heard that the movie has been getting really good reviews. And the song Adele did for the movie is AMAZING.

6. I’m craving egg salad for some reason. I think I’ll end up making that for lunch today.

7. That’s all I’ve got. Enjoy your weekend!
