First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who read my 30 and Single post. I had NO idea that so many people would be interested in tuning in (and chiming in) on the topic. Nor did I honestly consider the possibility that you all would respond with such thoughtful comments, emails, tweets, texts, etc. I’m totally humbled and grateful, still a little freaked out about it all, but I definitely look forward to hearing more about what you may have to say. So thanks for making this a conversation!
Ok, back to the topic at hand…
I have to admit that there’s something about hearing/talking/writing/reading about the topic of singleness this past week that has felt really odd to me. Sure — awkward, vulnerable, a little uncomfortable — I knew that was to be expected. But I couldn’t quite put my finger on what felt so strange and out of the norm for me until a friend pointed it out.
I quite simply don’t say the word “single” all that much!
Ok, I couldn’t resist doing one more post on Friday Night Lights. Today we’re talking FNL trivia!
Since I watched the show on Netflix, I didn’t get the chance to see all of the bonus footage and interviews on the DVDs, which is always a “must” after I finish a show. So over the past week, I did a little investigating of my own and found a wealth of articles, interviews, reviews, and where-are-they-now articles on all things FNL. So I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites here.
I have now officially joined the ranks of the thousands of Friday Night Lights fans who binge-watched this show in a matter of weeks. Unfortunately, this happened for me years after the show went off the air, and I’m bummed that I wasn’t able to contribute to the ratings the show struggled to receive when they were needed. But 76 episodes, 2 months, and countless cheers and tears shed later, I have to admit…
I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend — free of laboring, and full of fun!
Mine ended up being a full and wonderful weekend. And with the exception of a few hours spent on a freelancing project that I forgot about (oops), it was blissfully free from work and time with my computer screen. And it was awesome.
We’re starting a new little series site-wide here called “Gimme Some Favorites”. And after posting this mason jar inspired roundup today on Oven, I thought it would be fun to do a little fitness version here at Gimme Some Life.
So without further ado, here is a roundup of some of my favorite workout gear!
Since decade markers tend to invite a fair share of introspection, I decided to make a list (whoo!) of 30 things I have learned in the past ten years to celebrate. It’s far from exhaustive, and I’ll warn you that it’s super random coming at the end of a long day. But as cheesy as it may be, making these sort of lists have always been helpful for me in gaining perspective and drawing a line in the sand to help see where I’ve been and where I’m going. (And of course, I’m sure this will be plenty amusing to read over in another ten years.) :)
It’s been a little while since I’ve done a “Currently” post.
Life has been plenty busy lately, but the good kind of busy. A little less work, more time with friends and family, and lots of time soaking up the sunshine when the weather was warm. (Ok, ok, and then pulling out my winter coat again and braving the dog park when the temps decided to dip below freezing again. C’est la vie in the Midwest.)
