Happy Friday Eve 😀
You know I love Thursdays….besides that whole shot thing that I have to do- blah! I just have to get past that & it’s all easy, peasy from there 😉
Oh, I totally forgot to put it on here yesterday, but THANK YOU for all of the book suggestions. I am planning to go to Barnes & Noble today or tomorrow. Sounds like I have quite a few good ones to choose from!
Now, I was thinking of something to write about today- and it actually hit me yesterday morning. As I was going to pack my lunch, I went to grab a banana & was suddenly very disappointed. NONE of them were to my liking. You see, I am one of the most particular people about bananas- I HATE when they even have one brown spot on them.
^Those bananas= BAD! Immediately to the freezer they go for banana soft serve. I don’t know why, but I think they taste too banana- y. I know, I’m weird (told ya that before 😉 ) bananas that taste too much like bananas?! Yep, you got that right. 🙂 I actually buy my bananas green. Not totally green, but mainly green- like this:
I like when the peel is really hard to get off, unlike those bananas with brown spots- ew! I was SO thankful when I came across this post by Janetha that said the way to make bananas NOT ripen as fast is to pull them apart. (there are also some other really cool tips- you should check it out!)
Along with my random ‘Holly fact’ about bananas, I figured that I would share a few more…just so that you can see how strange I really am..Poor Craig! Just kidding 😉 I actually think it’s really funny how we all have our own little quirks. One thing about Craig that I noticed from the very beginning of our relationship is that he notices when ANYTHING is moved in the house. I could move a piece of paper an inch (literally) & he would come home & notice it. Also, he always like to have socks on….if he doesn’t have socks, he tells me how cold his feet are. Funny boy 🙂
^See that placemat above? I just picked it up the other day- I thought it was very summery looking. (oh, that was a meal we had the other night- I have to share the recipe- super QUICK & easy to make! Kind of like this recipe..but even easier!) I have placemats for every holiday…and for the different seasons. I like them because it’s an easy way to add decoration to the house, without a lot of effort. And if you are looking for really cute, fairly cheap placemats- try Kohl’s. That is where I get most of mine.
Here’s another thing…I LOVE strong coffee.
The stronger the better. I feel really bad because I make coffee for a co-worker & myself every morning. (I bought in my own coffee maker because the coffee that they sell in the cafe downstairs is disgusting! My co-worker & I are very protective of our coffee too- better not try to sneak some outta the coffee pot- we WILL catch you 😉 ) Well, I definitely do NOT lack on the amount of coffee beans that I add to the maker! 🙂 And on Mondays- whoa- talk about coffee that will grow hair on your chest- yep, that’s what I make 🙂
It’s also funny when I go to Starbucks on the weekend to get our weekly ‘coffee treat’ for Craig & I. I always get an iced coffee- black- no cream, no sugar. For Craig, I always get him some kind of ‘girly drink’ (as most people would call it) , like a frappuccino, or caramel macciato.
I might of said this one before, but I always have to have my nails painted. I cannot deal if they start to chip.
^That would make me BONKERS!
If there is a chip in my nail polish, I will immediately start picking at it until I pull it all off. Then once I do that, I start picking my other nail polish off my other nails. It’s a REALLY bad habit. Not only is it a bad habit, but it makes a big mess…oops!
I don’t mind sharing any other drink, but I will NOT let anyone touch my milk- it just skeeves me out! Yuck! I don’t know why…maybe it’s because milk is thicker than any other drink.
Now YOU have to tell me some weird habit that you have, or a little quirk! I love hearing these things…and it’s kind of funny because I love when someone else has one of my quirks or habits….at least they understand why I do the things I do 😀
Enjoy your day! It’s almost the weekend!
