Friday Randoms

1.  Anyone else super intrigued/obsessed with the missing Flight 370 drama?  Maybe because I was complete LOST fanatic, I just can't stop reading or watching any news stories unfolding more details.

2. Oil Pulling.  Have you tried this?  I've been doing it for about a week, except I do after Ashlynn goes to bed instead of in the morning, so not sure if the effect is the same, but there isn't a way I could stay quiet for 20 minutes in the morning with a toddler.   I definitely noticed some whitening, but waiting to notice more with my overly sensitive teeth and TMJ.

3. Congratulations Sara!  You won the Oh My Charley giveaway, can't wait to see the garland in Mim's nursery!

Next week, we'll be taking a giveaway break, but get ready for the next round of them coming.  I have a bunch lined up that will be sure to make you break out your lucky charms!

4.  Oscar Season.  Okay I realize the Oscars are over, but this is the time of year we switch our netflix queue over from tv shows to movies.  We have Dallas Buyers Club ready to go tonight and American Hustle and Wolf of Wall Street waiting in the wings.  And Hunger Games Catching Fire, because you know, duh.

True story, the husband and I have only gone to the movies once.  Ever. Back when we first started dating we saw Superman Returns.  With one of his friends as a third wheel.  We just prefer sitting on non germy couch, without the sticky floor, free snacks, and pause bottom.

5.  Bake-a-thon.   Last week, I made chocolate chip muffins with Ashlynn (boxed, like I always make), and she's been baking up muffins in her kitchen since.  Yesterday, we made some Irish Soda Muffins and today we already made some cookie dough.  Not totally sure if I'll actually get around to baking it.

6. Don't forget, if you entered the Lucky Link Up, please make sure you've checked your match and post your experience with the new recipe this Monday!  Spoiler alert with mine, went off track and got lost.  Hopefully, I'll get some points for creativity!


I hope everyone has a great weekend tossing back a few green beers or shamrock shakes!

  1. Your girls are so cute in green! We used to go to the movies ALL the time! But since getting pregnant we've slowed down a lot (getting up to pee constantly and then having the baby). Now I prefer to watch at home too! I have to start making a list of my must see movies.

  6. We make cookie dough all the time and then just eat it straight out of the fridge. It's like...my adult dream come true. My Mom would never let me do that.

  7. I have done oil pulling for three days and I definitely have noticed some whitening with the oil pulling, but no I keep checking for updates too. It's just hard to believe a jet can really go missing like that.

  8. One. I have never heard of oil pulling sounds interesting. Two. Your green pictures are adorable. Three we don't go to the movies together very much because it's so expensive (Thomas does go with his dad for "free" movies). And Four. We are totally interested in that missing flight as well. Thomas has referred to Lost several times!!!

  9. Oil Pulling? I have never heard of this. Sounds interesting, and worth trying! I wonder how long you have to keep doing it consistently to really see a difference? How does your mouth feel afterward? I imagine it feeling like an oil spill.

  10. It actually doesn't really have big flavor and while swishing feels like any other fluid really. Afterwards, everything feels smooth (lightly oil coated), but a swish of water and it's fine. I noticed whiteness pretty fast. Not sure when I'll notice the sensitivity difference since I generally stay away from trigger foods.... like sour patch kids. :(

  11. My husband loves cookies straight from the oven and I like cookie dough, so I'll usually make dough and then make a cookie sheet at a time instead of everything and them getting stale.

  12. Haha autocorrect, nice try! I think oil pulling is a big fad, but I'm all for natural remedies. My teeth are too sensitive for white stripes now, so I'll do whatever I can to combat all the coffee I drink!

  13. OH MY GOSH. I LOVED Lost as well! I was so sad (and just as confused) when it ended! And I am totally intrigued by the missing flight as well. A plane can't just disappear...
    LOVING Kenley and those adorable leggings!

  14. I feel like oil pulling is a HUGE fad right now---like every form of social media has it trending big time. I can't say that I really care to try it but interesting that you are tolerating it without gagging! And yes, the plane deal is SO weird and intriguing.

  15. We'll I'm not claiming to have invented oil pulling! It definitely is a new trend, just like OCM was a big thing a few years back. But I'm always down to try something natural and chemical free, especially when it comes to my sensitive teeth :)

  16. You girls are too cute in your green!! I have been doing oil pulling for awhile now and have really noticed my teeth are less sensitive and whiter, sour patch kids are a killer!! Loooooved Lost and agree this is all crazy with the plane, I have been obsessed as well. Happy St Patty's Day Eve! Xo!

  17. Love love love the girls' outfits! Could they be any cuter? And I'm intrigued by the oil pulling, but have been so stuffed up and miserable for the last few months I can't even imagine being able to breathe through my nose for 20 minutes. Happy St. Pat's! I had a big bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast this morning.

  18. Sooo yeah. My husband and I were movie fanatics before we had a baby. Now we've been only once since. BUT I just read this article (can't stop shuddering) about how many bugs and roaches live on the sticky, gross floors at theaters and now I may never, ever, ever, EVERRRR go back. Catching Fire is an AWESOME movie -- so are all the others in your queue. I actually just ordered some coconut oil to give this pulling thing a try, so we shall see.
