What I'm Reading This Week #39

Happy Friday, you sexy mamas (and papas if there's any dudes.)  

In case you weren't aware, today is the last day of September.  Tomorrow's October and I couldn't be happier!  WOOT!!  HOOT!!  SHOOT!! GROOT!!! TOOOT!!  LOOT!!  COOT!!  (Sorry, I just typed all of that so that the Mr had to enthusiastically read it out loud.)

There are a goodly amount of links so let's get right to...

These Are the Healthiest Breads You Can Buy  (Mmm, carbs)

9 American Foods That Have Been Banned In Other Countries  (Yikes)

Can Walking Be Enough to Reduce Obesity?  (Yes and no)

Get Your Roll On – What, Why, And How You Should Foam Roll  (I've been rolling before and after workouts the past few days and it seems to make me feel a little better)

Lee's Weight-Loss-Slash-Love Story Is More Tear-Jerking Than The Notebook  (Big sobby tears)

Why We Screw Things Up When Life Is Good  (Well, this hit home)

This Is Exactly What Happens to Your Body When You Don't Take a Rest Day  (I guess we should all take rest days a little more serious)

The Trailer For Embrace, an Upcoming Body-Positive Documentary, Will Bring You to Tears  (Yep, totally bawled like an @ss)

Peanut Butter Can Help Diagnose Early Stages of Alzheimer's  (We knew this but for anyone else who didn't know they could use this technique)

Photo of a Grandpa Doing His Wife's Hair Goes Viral For All the Right Reasons  (OMG, THIS is how it's supposed to go, people!  A thousand hugs to this man for doing what his wife needs!)

The 12 Best Places to See Fall Foliage in Vermont  (I <3 Vermont)

'The Final Countdown' Played on 64 Floppy Drives Would Make Gob Bluth Proud  (I don't know what Gob Bluth is but it's pretty cool...courtesy of the Mr)

What to Request for Your Next Hotel Stay if You Love Jeff Goldblum  (Um, *I* love Jeff Goldblum!!  I would've taken the "what can we do to make your stay better" to mean it was I wrong??  But for future reference, buy your frames at the dollar store ahead of time because I can only imagine what they charged.)

We caught up on the DVR last night after our workout.  I swear the resistance band  (affiliate link) workouts are so much harder than I ever gave them credit for.  I don't think we have anything specific planned for the weekend.  I kinda feel like stopping by the store some friends own because it looked like they got in some Fall stuff.  It's big grocery weekend and I saw that Trader Joe's got their buttload of pumpkin stuff in via the Fearless Flyer including their Pumpkin Body Butter which sells out QUICK so pick some up if you've got one in the area.  I can vouch for the Pumpkin Macarons too.  Oh!  And they have Spice Cider too!  It's friggin' AMAZING...I always stock up in November before they get tempted to yank it because it lasts like 2 years unopened.  Now I want to go grocery shopping.

What are y'all into this weekend?

  1. For those wondering, I DID have to read it out loud. With enthusiasm even. Woot woot! TGIF!

  2. Love, love, loved the picture of the husband doing his wife's hair. I had to laugh when I read what the granddaughter said because the first thing I thought of was "my grandmother would kill me if I put a picture out there for millions to see and she was in her robe"! But it's so dang cute! And the cookies look yummy! Lastly, I can definitely vouch for all the cities in Vermont - we were just up in Woodstock over the summer. Hope we can get back there for the foliage! Have a great weekend!

  3. Ooooh, #4 in the article about why we screw things up when life is good was like a bright neon sign for me. I'd been told that one from my earliest memories. I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the beginning of October in splendid fall fashion. =o) I'm supposed to go to a craft show tomorrow morning with a friend of mine, but I'm hearing rain. I'll see if she still wants to drive out this far. The show is in its 40th year and I've never known about it! LOL Tells you how in-tune I am to life. Pfft. Happy October!! xoxo
