Fun Fact Friday!


I was definitely tricked this morning. Torrance opened the blinds to the patio door which is right near my side of the bed and it was sunny and beautiful out. But when I stepped out there to visit with him before he headed off to work it was FREEZING. And when  I say freezing I mean just not warm like I expected. My Alaska blood has officially thinned.

I considered wearing a scarf since it was crisp out, but the nice sunny aura had me getting my last few summery outfits in. This picture is actually for my friend Kayla back in Alaska because the other day she told me she missed my messy hair buns at work… aw.

I made a trip to Starbucks this morning for my usual delicious coffee instead of the pumpkin sauce type. Per some of your suggestions I am going to have to try the Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin coffee though!

And I decided to switch it up some for breakfast since I have mostly been enjoying PB banana sandwiches and Egg n Jelly sandwiches. So this morning I decided on some oatmeal with banana slices!

I always forget how filling that is though! Filling but delicious.

Oh, and I am also happy to report that I didnt have any issues at last nights workout class! No problems with my hips or anything actually which was nice. It was still hard. We did some side winders with giant ropes (definitely a good workout) and some crazy Russian Dancer type moves with slider disks. And squats on balance discs. He helped me with my squats again since I have issues. I am determined to do a damn squat the right way I tell ya what!

Among a bunch of other moves, our circuit yesterday also involved jumping jacks in a forward motion. I loathe jumping jacks but made it through them.


So, I have decided that Fridays are going to be dubbed “Fun Fact Friday” where I share a couple weird/fun facts. They will most likely be a little random but I figured it would be something fun and a break from the norm!

So let’s get things started shall we? Lets start the weekend out with a boost in confidence and go with a theme of: Girl Power!

  • Fun Fact #1 – Women have a better sense of smell than men. We also have a better eye for color differences!
  • Fun Fact #2 Bullet proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers were all invented by women. We also invented White-out and the CPR mannequin!
  • Fun Fact #3 – The two highest IQ’s ever recorded (on a standard test) both belong to women.
  • Fun Fact #4 – In almost every country in the world, the life expectancy for women is higher than men.

Everyone have a great weekend!


Do you prefer summer or winter fashion better?
Honestly, I prefer winter/fall fashion better. Mostly because I am not a fan of wearing shorts because I am self conscious of my legs. I do it anyway of course and theres tons of cute summer stuff (plus flip flops are my favorite shoes!)

Were any of those 4 facts new to you? And do you have any fun facts about women to share?

  1. Summer fashion is my fave … I love dresses 🙂 But at the same time … I live in New Orleans and we can wear dresses year round … so maybe I should give fall a chance, right?

    Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about 8) I’m going to write these facts down so I can show them to Will later. He always boasts about his senses, but PSH– the facts dont lie!
