things I know for certain

A head cold + drinking two beers is as good at putting you to sleep as popping a Nyquil.

Annie better be right when she said, “The sun will come out tomorrow.” Otherwise, I’m gonna be pissed if it rains for the third day in a row.

Men just don’t understand (as illustrated by my newly-single friend who is currently laying in my bed and drinking a Goose Island Harvest Ale beer).

Blondies are better than brownies.

Sometimes in life eyewear AND a hard hat are needed, especially when it comes to relationships.

Black will always be the new black.

Nothing beats a good workout, a great meal or an amazing boff.

Carrot beet apple ginger juice may not cure sickness, but it definitely can’t hurt.

Eating massive amounts of food, watching massive amounts of trashy, mindless television and spending massive amounts of time with my family sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving to me.

Going to bed at 9:00pm is cool.

Scrunchies should never ever come back in style.

Wilson Phillips was right when they said things will go your way if you hold on for one more day.

Really, I know nothing.

glidingcalm November 22, 2010 at 9:12 pm

Truth: my father has long hair and wears scrunchies.

Emily November 22, 2010 at 9:23 pm

best friends are the world.
annd you know how to take a photograph – obsessed with #1 of up there! Lo and I have similar pic in one of those mirror things….but it’s not as cool as yours.

rebecca lustig November 22, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Oatmeal is the best breakfast, ever
Delicious candles make me happy
There is ALWAYS a new day!
I dont love to run
This thanksgiving I am more excited about my gma’s mac and cheese than my gma herself (uhh. just kidding…)

hippierunner November 22, 2010 at 10:10 pm

I hope you feel better soon! and that does sound like a perfect Thanksgiving!

Diana @ frontyardfoodie November 22, 2010 at 10:21 pm

I know for certain that you’re a good friend to let a homeless, newly single person lay in your bed and drink beer. Can I be your friend?

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) November 22, 2010 at 10:24 pm

Carrot beet apple ginger juice looks divine and i KNOW it will help w/ the sickies. Ginger is anti-microbial :)

The weather..meh. Here’s to sun

And here’s to you feeling better!

Mary @ Bites and Bliss November 22, 2010 at 10:28 pm

Going to bed at 9pm is very cool. I used to be cool like that, but lately I’ve been pretty lame and going to be pretty late.

Love these! Especially that Thanksgiving one. Sounds perrfect. :)

lora November 22, 2010 at 10:29 pm

boff. hahahahhahahaha. peed my pants. love you holls. lemme know when i should train it up to WI to see you. A good beer. A great friend. And some amazing food sound in order.


Katie November 22, 2010 at 11:12 pm

The fact that you linked to boff AND referenced scrunchies makes this the coolest post ever.

Mama Pea November 22, 2010 at 11:53 pm

Wilson Phillips rocks. And was also my high school nickname.

Adam November 23, 2010 at 12:58 am

Just being you should make you the happiest person alive! And i agree, men really don’t understand… Love your last pic/line.

Madeline @ Greens and Jeans November 23, 2010 at 4:29 am

I can only hope that Johnny skating to poker face made both you and your friend feel a teensy bit better. AND I hope you get to feeling 100% soon! Something tells me a little Mama E time will have you back on your feet

Erica November 23, 2010 at 4:36 am

I hope to goodness scrunchies never come back in style. Those blondies look way tasty

Lauren November 23, 2010 at 5:45 am

So many things I agree with in this. I’ve always thought Blondies are DEFINITELY better than Brownies but I feared that made me a little prejudice. But then I remembered I’m so much more into dark chocolate than white chocolate so I think I’m covered. ;)

I use to wear scrunchies all the time!!! With leggins and saddle shoes! :)

Amy B @ Second City Randomness November 23, 2010 at 6:10 am

I’m jealous you got to bed by 9:00 pm. At any day. I kick myself everyday- not so much when I go to bed late, but when I get up and am reminded of how stupid this was.

Blondies really are better. Agreed completely.

chelsey @ clean eating chelsey November 23, 2010 at 6:13 am

<3'ed "I know nothing" – I usually feel that way at the end of the day!! :)

Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) November 23, 2010 at 6:24 am

I agree. Blondies are way better than brownies. And that’s saying a lot, because I love brownies. ;)

Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine November 23, 2010 at 7:23 am

My mom still wears scrunchies. More often than not they’re in neon colors. She should read this post, because she doesn’t believe me when I tell her they’re over.

Susan November 23, 2010 at 8:06 am

What about wearing scrunchies to bed to prevent “pillow hair”?

Feel better gorgeous!

Pure2Raw Twins November 23, 2010 at 8:35 am

I agree nothing beats a good workout or good food :) It has been so long since I have even thought about scrunchies… ;) haha

Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans November 23, 2010 at 10:03 am

Sometimes in life eyewear AND a hard hat are needed, especially when it comes to relationships. YES!

Annie better be right when she said, “The sun will come out tomorrow.” Otherwise, I’m gonna be pissed if it rains for the third day in a row. DOUBLE YES!!

Black will always be the new black. YES, YES, YES!!

I freakin’ love this post.

Lynn @ The Actors Diet November 23, 2010 at 10:03 am

someday somebody’s gonna make you wanna turn around and say good byeeee

Katie November 23, 2010 at 11:38 am

Now I want a blondie and a carrot beet apple ginger juice – it sounds like the perfect lunch.

Damaris @Kitchen Corners November 23, 2010 at 11:47 am

Tell this Annie person to come predict the weather where I live. I’m also sick of the rain.

dana @ my little celebration November 23, 2010 at 11:58 am

one thing I know for certain:

Your creativity, pattern of thought, writing ability and wit tickle my blogging fancy.

Sami November 23, 2010 at 11:58 am

things i know for certain:
chocolate trumps all
….that’s about it. :)


Joanna November 23, 2010 at 1:06 pm

Really love this post! And, yes, great meals, great workouts and great boffs– nothin’ beats any of ’em!

Jess November 23, 2010 at 6:50 pm

Those blondies looks INCREDIBLE!!

Lindsey @ Eat, Read, Run November 23, 2010 at 7:56 pm

Totally agree 9pm bedtimes are the new 10pm – so in. Can someone please tell my husband so he will stop making fun of me? Speaking of 9pm – it’s just a few minutes away! Wilson Phillips – Classic.

Kaitlin With Honey November 23, 2010 at 8:26 pm

I think the way you look at the world is awesome.

And yes, absolutely, blondies are better than brownies.

Unless they’re my mom’s brownies. In which case I’d just have to complete a… taste-off?

K - Anywhere There's An Airport November 23, 2010 at 9:48 pm

1. Your idea of Thanksgiving and my idea of Thanksgiving are exactly the same :)
2. Wilson Philips. Love. Just reading it made me smile! It’s true… hold on for one more day!

Christine (The Raw Project) November 23, 2010 at 10:51 pm

Great post, a good workout can almost always cure a foul mood. I confess I have a scrunchie, but I only use while putting on makeup and never wear it out of the house. :-P

Kate November 24, 2010 at 2:56 am

Scrunchies- never, eva, eva again please!
Blondies are way better.
Clearly, you know a ton- and those pics are GORGE-ous (couldn’t resist an Ithaca pun :)
