Friday Round-Up

Happy Friday.  Here’s the first round-up of the new year.

Thank you to those of you who have already signed up to participate in New Year, New Gear.  Interested in a fitness gear exchange?  More information here and you just need to send me an email.

I’ve heard from some of you that you have too much going on this month but would be interested next month – I imagine a February repeat.

You know you live in a college town when the snowmen have arms made from vodka bottles and buttons made from beer bottles


Stay classy Madison!

If you live in a cold climate or area always cold (I deal with both!), you should know about Cuddle Duds.  My mom and I found this top while out shopping last weekend and I’ve basically lived in this for days (and it has visited the washing machine).

That’s your stay warm public service announcement for the week.

Haley shared a free, printable blog planner on her site yesterday.  It looks like a fun project and a great way to get organized.  I have a blogging notebook and sticky notes all over the place with ideas.  This would help me pull it all together.

And finally, Tucker has been under the weather this week.  Fever, infection, etc.  He’s on the mend.  I finally figured out the trick to get him to take his antibiotics–peanut butter.  I learned the hard way that he wasn’t going to take them the old-fashioned way – I nearly lost a few fingers.  Why is it so entertaining to watch a dog eat pb?

What’s on tap for your weekend?  Did you have to go back to work this week?  Any good warm-weather gear to share?


Friday Funnies: 4/6/12

Let’s get right to a few chuckles…

1.  Just in case you need a  jokes to tell this weekend:

What do you call a rabbit with fleas?

        Bugs Bunny!

How do you know carrots are good for your eyes?

  Have you ever seen a rabbit with glasses?

How do bunnies stay healthy?  


2.  You never know when corny jokes will come in handy…last week I was sitting at my desk, working away, minding my own business.  I share an office with a few others and my colleague Angie was also working away at her desk.

In walks a man (I think he was a contractor working in the building)…doesn’t say hello, or anything.  Just starts to tell us a joke.  Then I dug into my mental file cabinet of bad jokes from the blog and this guy and I started going toe-to-toe with bad jokes.  Once he got in the last joke, he turned around and walked away.  Random!

3.  Dress pant sweatpants:

Are you really fooling anyone with those?  I sure hope women’s pencil skirts made from fleece are next!

4.  Funny Kostas picture of the day:

Nobody better try and lay a finger on my jar of Nuttzo!

I’m off to enjoy a day with my niece…Hunger Games, Whole Foods, etc!
