Happyyyyyy Fridayyyyyyyyyy! I thought this day was never going to come! I'm in the middle of bakingsome chocolate chip cookies for my LAST DAY with the cherubs (they may be crazy, but I know they'll love Hayley's recipe), so today's fun facts post will be short and sweet. Sounds good? Awesome.
1.) Cherry is my favorite flavor. I will pick cherry anything any day (except cough syrup...that's just gross). If I eat a red candy and it's not cherry, I spit it out and proceed to whine profusely until I find the cherry flavor I seek. True story.
2.) I made my bed for the first time in over a year at my apartment Thursday. I have become horrible about doing so since I moved out of my family's home (although if I spend the night there, I always make my bed after I get up...weird I know). I have no idea what possessed me to do so yesterday, but my bedroom looks a lot prettier with it made, so I think I'll try to keep it up. We'll see how long this lasts (read: a week tops).
3.) Wednesday night, I slept horribly. I kept having the same nightmare, waking up shaking, and then fall back asleep into the same dream. When my alarm went off at 5, I was going to give myself a rest day but was too afraid to sleep again, so I got up to do some yoga. After a few shorter videos, I decided to try this workout from Devon. Big mistake, since my body was too tired, which I knew and tried to ignore and force anyway. I had tears in my eyes after two rounds (no exaggeration), so I stopped and switched back to yoga, rather than making myself finish the other two rounds. Progress, people, and proud of it.
4.) My first CD was Spice Girls, quickly followed by Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, and Jock Jams (the last was put on at the rink during free skates and stroking, aka a form of torture used to build endurance in which our coaches would make us go around the rink as fast as we could for the last 10 minutes or so of our sessions, while chasing us with hockey sticks...perhaps my mental block against hockey had something to do with that?). All of these can still be found on my running playlist, and I'm not ashamed in the slightest.
5.) I have worn my smurf pants from PV Body twice this week to lounge/do yoga in, and I love them. They will definitely be packed for my trip to stay with this girl in two weeks, since she has the same pair. We are going to look fabulous when we wear them together....at the same time of course.
6.) This is Godfrey. I received him as a birthday present from my "big sister" in skating many years ago and have slept with him ever since. I still cuddle with him when someone is lame and goes back to his stupid base 9 hours away. I may be 24 in human years, but you'd never know it from my behavior.
7.) I have absolutely no idea how to celebrate being done with my job today. Methinks a movie, in comfy clothes, and some yummy food would be ideal, but I don't feel like cooking (shocking I know). Suggestions?
Have a fantastic Friday!
What is your favorite flavor? Do you still sleep with an animal? What was your first cd? Fun weekend plans?
