Fascinating Friday Links #18

It’s pajama day! At home though, because it’s a snow day. Apparently the school district notified everyone yesterday afternoon that school would be closed today, but I didn’t find out until 8 PM when my mom suggested we make waffles this morning.

“We could make those waffles tomorrow morning!”

“Yeah, if I don’t have school tomorrow.”

“You don’t.”

“No, I don’t know yet.”

“No, you don’t have school. I told you earlier that the school texted me, called my cell, AND called my phone.”

“Oh…:D YAY!”

I wanted to slow down in 2014, but not that much.

Needless to say, I’m a happy camper. It’s like we’re still on break! I’ll be catching up on some schoolwork today anyway though, so it’s not completely a bum day.

I also want to thank you all for your kind comments on my Quads on Fire Workout video post yesterday. I promise the next video I make will not be nearly as sucky (I’ll actually film my whole body when demonstrating the moves), but you guys made me feel a little better about myself with your comments. If I do more videos, I’d probably do more vlog-type videos if you’re up for that. If not, that’s cool too. You probably read this blog for the purpose of reading it, not watching it 🙂

Side note: I was walking penguin-style yesterday because of that workout. Foam rolling was a jerk. And then Ben and I watched March of the Penguins on TV. 

Alright I’m done talking. Here are your Fascinating Friday Links!

  1. I LOVE vlogs! For some reason it’s like your kinda-sorta hanging out with the person “in the moment” in a non-creepy way? haha 🙂

    I started my morning with a 5:00 am 4 mile treadmill run, work, and after work I might go to the movies with my big brother! I hope you have an awesome Friday! Thank you for all the links, plenty of good reads for my lunch break!


  2. Pajama day here too! Thanks for keeping me entertained while I’m restricted to my bed today! Loved the jibjab link, what really matters, grain of truth (beautiful!), and Colleen’s rant on pinterest’s fitness boards (so freaking true!)
    And I love vlogs bc I always feel like I get to see a more personal side of bloggers and feel like we are real life friends ( 😉)

  3. Hi Alison!
    Great link round ups. My favorite is Lindsay’s from the Lean Green Bean. I love her blog.
    And, that’s nice that you get the day off from school. Stay warm!
