Twosday XVII

Awesome at Home Work Outs I’ve Done This Weekend

  1. 180 Abs from Fresh Life Findings – it’s simple. Four exercises. 15 sets each. Twice through.  That’s an 8-set workout to-do list I can get behind.  Even though this only takes a little bit of time, I found it to be a great workout!  It got my heart rate up and I even broke an unexpected sweat, which doesn’t always happen when I’m doing ab work.
  2. Courtney’s No Equipment Needed Workout – Another great, simple workout to rely on from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life.  Three of my go-to living room or back office workouts come from Courtney’s workout pages.  This one is added to the list of favorites to rely on, for sure.

YouTube Videos Cool Enough to Share

Movies I’ve Never Seen

  1. The Sound of Music
  2. Any of the Star Wars films

Movies I Watch at Least Twice Each Holiday Season

  1. The Family Stone – though I could watch this film any time of year; it’s on the tip top of my favorite movies list. Love the cast. Love the writing. Love the family. Love SJP. Love.
  2. Elf – I already have a plan to watch with my little brother, Rob, when I’m in Texas for Christmas 🙂 [though I’ll probably watch it at least twice before I get to Texas, too!] When we evacuated for two weeks due to Hurricane Rita back in 2005, Rob and I watched Elf every single night. It’s a modern classic for sure.

Recommended Nerdist Programing on You Tube

1. Write Now with Jimmy Pardo.  Nick and I watched the first four episodes back to back last week and have since rewatched one of the episodes four times, because we keep making our friends sit down to watch it with us: 

2. Neil Patrick Harris Dreams in Puppets – It premieres on the Nerdist Channel TODAY!!  I’ve been excited to see what NPH was going to be delivering when I first heard it was coming on the Nerdist podcast way back at the start of the Nerdist YouTube channel and this behind the scenes video had me SERIOUSLY counting down since last week!

Extra Bonus Awesome Things About Having the Internet

  1. Leaving things in my cart whilst online shopping, allowing a week of time to go buy before JUMPING on a purchase.  Especially helpful with all the Christmas shopping I’ve been doing!
  2. Daily shows in my Hulu Queue – specifically the late night ones. There’s a lot more Jimmy Fallon in my life these days, and I’m quite happy with that.

Photo Albums Updated This Weekend on the THS Facebook Page

  1. Benson the Blitten. Golly gee, he’s adorable. [in other news: I’m pretty sure Kelly stole Benson and convinced him to pretend he’s Miss Kitty. SERIOUSLY – they look so similar!!]
  2. Living Gluten Free Event with Wegman’s & Attune Foods. From a trip Alicia and I took to Syracuse in October to share the good love of Attune Foods with all of the people!

Pinterest Boards I Love to Scroll Through Every Other Month or So

  1. =D – I can’t help but smile as I scroll down the page. 
  2. Things to Do = maybe one day I’ll actually do some of these. [ OH LOOK! one I’m actually already doing!!]


p.s. some of the items I share [because I love them & think you’ll love them, too!] and link to on this post are available for sale in my amazon affiliate store. I’d love if you made amazon purchases through my store – you can search and shop for ANY item on Amazon as you normally would, by following this link. It helps to keep THS alive and well. xo

Denton Drogging

It is 1:52 AM as I start this.
Though, my computer says it’s 2:52 AM, because I’ve not yet changed it to the central time zone.


I thought it would be best of me to write to you now, because, well, let’s be honest, here….I’ve had a few drinks.  And apparently, drogging [otherwise known as drunk blogging] is a lot of fun.


There are a lot of things I like about Denton.
I like that I have some really great friends in the DFW area.


I like that there is a Yogurt Story in Denton. [This just in: Not all stories have happy endings. But good news! – my recent yogurt story had a very happy ending.]

I like that when I am in Denton I can read lots of books.  I know that I can read lots of books anywhere, but I like to read books at the Manor. In the backyard, getting some sun or in the foyer on the “fancy couch.”  I also enjoy reading before slumber.


There are lots of fun places I’ve yet to visit, and several places to explore in Denton.  Of course, I’ve found a few new favorite spots while I’ve been in town.


My most favorite part about Denton is that I am surrounded by my family.  My hilarious, awesome, kind, so much fun to be around, wish I never had to leave them family.  Currently there are 15 of us here.  People from Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Minnesota and New York came to town.  We are a smorgasbord of awesome.


As much as I love Denton, and as much as I don’t want to leave this place – I have to admit that I am slightly excited to get back to New York.  Nothing that I need to rush to, of course.  But I must admit that I am missing my friends, my work, and my routine.

Also, as I type this, the Doogie Howser music is playing in my head. You know what I’m talking about…that instrumental “dute dute dute” that plays as NPH types in his computer journal.

I hope it’s in your head, too.
