Five Things Friday- 1.10.14

by Elizabeth on January 10, 2014

Hey, hey, hey friends! I’m linking up with Clare today for another addition of Fun Facts Friday! I know you’re busy so let’s jump right in to the randomness.

1. Yesterday I found this article on 35 things from your childhood that no longer exist. Anyone else remember almost every single one??? Ah the 90s, those were the good ole days? I used to eat multiple bowls of Nesquick cereal in junior high for breakfast. <——- Dead serious. The fact that they no longer make it is like a small breakfast death to me.

2. Joe switched to a 9/80 (work 80 hours in 9 days) schedule at work in 2014 so he now has every other Friday off! We partied hard last night in order to get this three day weekend started right.

3. I’ve LOVED body pump this week! I’ve gone to a couple classes and plan on doing one today. Body Attack (I mentioned I tried this on Tuesday) is not something I would recommend if you are pregnant. It was a blast but there’s a lot of jumping around. My plan is to wait until after the baby is here to return :-)

4. I experimented with spaghetti squash last night? anyone have any good recipes for the leftovers? I used an olive oil pesto for the sauce and added some turkey, cheese, and other vegetables. It was alright, just not great so if you have good recommendations please pass them my way!

5. A few of you asked for the funfetti blondie recipe so here’s the one I used from Sally’s Baking Addiction! All this x2! I recommend cooking them closer to the 25 minute range rather than 30. I like things doughy!

That’s all folks! Short and sweet for your Friday! Make it a great day!!!

I looked at that article a few days ago, and was especially bummed out by the 3d Doritos. I miss those guys.

Happy weekend <3 <3 <3

A spaghetti squash bake with ground beef or turkey is really yummy, quick and fairly healthy minus the cheese: ) The 90′s really were awesome!

Chocolate Covered Katie has some awesome dessert recipes!

Spaghetti squash with homemade bolognese sauce is one of my favourite meals! I’ve wanted to try BodyPump forever, but I can’t find it anywhere. :( Have a great weekend!

I remember all but a couple from that article. Surge was the it soda when I was in Jr High and it was awful tasting not quite as awful as pepsi blue or pepsi clear.

Do miss the sqeeze it drinks the ones they make now just aren’t as good!

I follow Picky Palate (! It is a food and dessert blog, but she has the best desserts ever! Yummy!
I remember some of the things from the article, but I was only 9 when we left the 90s, so some of the things are probably a little too old for me ha! My weekend is going to be spent visiting some family, and just relaxing! Yay :)

A body pump class sounds really fun! I need to join a gym where they offer classes. It’s so much fun to switch things up! Congratulations on the pregnancy! :)


16 Sarah @ Sarah Sincerely January 10, 2014 at 6:08 pm

Umm..I’ve recently read that article about things from the 90′s that are gone. And OMG, made me laugh so much at all that stuff that I’d forgotten about. Butterfinger BB’s? Umm…yes! That’s a neat concept for Joe’s hourly schedule. What a treat to have him home on some Fridays.
If you’ve never checked out, you’ve definitely got to. She has great dessert recipes, as well as awesome dinner, app, breakfast recipes.

I love Sally’s blog! I want to make so many of her recipes. Those blondies look delicious! I’ve started going to Group Power (same as body pump) recently and have been enjoying the challenge of weight lifting! I’ve never stuck to lifting weights on my own and I love the team feel of the class.
