Things I didn’t share Friday (2/7)

Things I didn't share Friday 2-7


1. When MT and I went on our date last weekend, he ordered ahi tuna.  It came with pretty typical sides, such as cucumber salad, wasabi, soy sauce, and pickled ginger.  MT never eats the ginger, and I’ve noticed that a lot of other people do the same.  Am I the only one who absolutely loves that stuff?  I need to buy myself a jar of it soon- or make it on my own!

2. Remember when I told you that my memory has been horrible lately?  Well, my newest issue is dropping things- such as a glass storage container filled with delicious quinoa cooked in coconut oil and Bragg liquid aminos. It made a huge mess (thankfully, Michel was napping when it happened), but I was more upset about the wasted quinoa than anything else.  Spoken like a true health nut.

3. I finally got the results of my 3-hour glucose test, and… I passed!  Since this will be our second and last child, I never have to chug that nasty drink ever again. Woo-hoo!

4. Does anyone else recognize the voice of John Corbett from Sex and the City in the Walgreens commercials?  Every time I hear or see the commercials, I want to yell, “I know it’s really you, Aiden!”  I mean, come on.  Who do they think they’re fooling? :)

5. I’ve developed kind of a shoe addiction lately, and one of my favorite places to shop for them is now  They offer massive discounts on designer shoes and free shipping on all orders.  The only bummer is that they don’t have free returns. If you’re a fellow shoe lover, you should definitely check it out.


Happy Friday!



  1. Huge fan of John Corbett – Sex and the City and United States of Tara – 2 fav shows! I knew his voice right away on the Walgreens commercials – ha! I like pickled things, but have not tried ginger – hmmm – might have to give it a go. Happy Weekend:)

  2. I adore the ginger at sushi places! I agree about making it- I definitely want to make some of my own! In other words, I know this was in a different post, but I absolutely love what you did with Michael’s room. The colors work together so well and it’s really playful. Congratulations in your test. Have a great weekend!
    P.S. I totally recognized his voice in the commercials!

    I’m glad that I am not the only one who loves the ginger! I tried to find some in the store the other day and couldn’t find it. :( Thank you so much for the comment about Michael’s room! I worked really hard to make it nice for him. :) I hope you’re having a great week!

  3. I love Aiden!!! I will never see John Crobett as anyone, but Aiden. I also love ginger. I eat all of mine when I’m eating sushi.

    The site is great! Happy shopping. :)

  5. How do you find all these great online discount websites? I should probably start writing them down (and hope that they all ship to Canada!!!). I wish Carrie ended up with Aiden every time I watch the re-runs of them together!!!

    Haha. That’s a shopping obsessed girl’s job I guess…to hunt for bargains! I just got a pair of Coach boots for half the retail price from there, so I was a very happy camper. :) I wish that Carrie ended up with Aiden too! He looked kind of rough in the movie though. LOL.

    Hey girl! Pickled Ginger is near the fresh sushi areas in HT. It works great in recipes that call for fresh ginger if you do not have any in the fridge
