Happy Friday!!! 😎

I am so psyched that it’s finally Friday because Mal and I are off to New York City for the weekend. On Saturday morning, I’m running the Mini 10K with some blog buddies and then Mal and I are planning to explore the city and drink some good beer for the rest of the afternoon. I can’t wait to introduce him to The Ginger Man!


This morning’s breakfast started with iced coffee. I poured myself a glass as soon as I got out of bed. It was one of those mornings.

To eat, I whipped up an oldie, but goodie recipe: Oatmeal Pancake. I topped it with banana slices, maple syrup, and a scoop of peanut butter. I also mixed some chia seeds into the batter. So good!

The other day, I stumbled upon this little piece in US Weekly about how some of the Real Housewives “wreck havoc” on the English language:

I love these ladies.

Maybe they’re just not the brightest bunch?

Or maybe they just have no idea what the hell they are talking about?

Which, of course, sometimes happens to the best of us! 😉

One of Mal’s favorite stories to embarrass me tell about me happened a good year into our relationship. We were in the car together going somewhere”” I was driving; he was in the passenger seat. I wanted my sunglasses, so I asked him to grab them out of the “glove department” for me. Instead of opening the glove compartment, Mal stopped and started at me, and then he asked me to repeat what I just said. Clear as day, I asked for my sunglasses in the “glove department,” so, of course, he started cracking up. Apparently, I made it 24 years of my life thinking that the glove compartment in a car was called the “glove department.” Mal still makes fun of me.

This story is even funnier because my sister calls the glove compartment the EXACT same thing. I guess my mom never corrected us growing up. I’m sure she just thought it was funny, but my sister and I both made it into our adult years calling it by the wrong name. Thankfully, we have husbands to correct make fun of us!

Question of the Day

Have you ever had trouble with the English language?

Please share your story. I need a good laugh this morning!
