**The RoadID Giveaway winner is #16 – Kimberly!! Email me, Kim, and we’ll get you squared away!**
It snowed here last night!! Not a lot, only like an inch, but it’s enough to make me want to use my Crock Pot and bake brownies all day.
So basically just like every other day.
Unfortunately, I STILL have to go teach Aqua Power at 11. The pool is heated and covered, but still?!!? There’s something not right about that.
Some random Friday fun for my lovelies:
1. I’m Klutz McGee!
I’ve always known this about myself (I trip easily. I’m not graceful. Bricks at Carolina used to just POP out of the sidewalk for me to trip over.) Yesterday, just solidified my theory.
Not only did I somehow manage to fling black bean hummus ALL OVER my computer….
But I also defied all laws of physics when I turned over half a bottle of Downy Unstoppables into our dryer. Which is front loading. And was nowhere NEAR the lavender smelling pellets.
You don’t put Unstoppables in your dryer. They’re made to dissolve in water. So I spent 10+ minutes, scraping tiny peebles out so they wouldn’t ruin my dryer. I KNOW I didn’t get them all out.
My clothes smell fantastic.
2. I made Averie’s Vanilla Avocado Banana Ice Cream!!
And it was everything I’d dreamed of and more! Creamy. Sweet. Avocado-ey. I even omitted the sugar and it was still amazing! A tip though – once you’ve made it and put it in your dish, bang the dish on your counter to get rid of any air bubbles – wish I’d done that to mine!
There’s still a little in the freezer. There won’t be tonight. Make this!!!
3. I’m Klutz McGee – the Public Speaker.
I’m hiring out to speak at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.
Just Bat Mitzvahs. Speaking in front of boys makes me nervous.
On Monday night, I’m speaking in front of a group of 45 professional women. The topic? Getting Healthy In The New Year. I haven’t prepared anything yet. They also misspelled my name on the program. I’m Linda Wright.
4. Drawing a blank.
I honestly can’t think of a 4th thing. We’re watching 30 Rock now on Netflix (it’s 8:15pm on Thursday night) and this show needs ALL of my attention.
I suppose I could have just titled this post, “Four Things Friday” and it still would have had some alliteration. Klutz McGee doesn’t have forethought.
For that matter, Linda Wright might not either. 15 minutes of hand-shadow puppetry should do the trick, right?
5. BLEND Ticket Sales
