Hi and Happy Friday! I've got a HOT weekend ahead. Going on a little date night tonight, and more kickball playoffs tomorrow! WOOOOT! Here are some great nugs to get you through what's left of this day...
1. Coffee is keeping you from dying. Thank heavens. Something I'm addicted to is finally going into the "pro" column. (I'm waiting with bated breath for some good news about what cupcakes, Bravo TV and Malbec are doing to my body.) A new study indicates that people who drink coffee live longer. Here's the catch, it's not that coffee is the cause of a longer life, coffee drinking and long living just seem to occur together. Confusing, but I don't care. Validation city. This means most of my loved ones will still be truckin' with me when I'm older than time.
(Mom, get on board. You're literally the only one I can think of that's still shaving off years of your life with tea every morning.)
2. Mindy Kaling is getting her own show! I'm PSYCHED. Here's the trailer:
She's like my favorite ever right now. It's going to be on FOX Tuesdays this Fall. This and New Girl all on one night! Maybe too much. The only thing that sucks? Kelly Kapoor is leaving us. Womp, womp.
3. World, this is Cupcakewurst:
"Before having Honor and Haven, I was super-critical of my looks and worried more about inevitable changes to my body. I couldn't even say the word 'sexy' to describe myself without feeling funny and awkward...Becoming a mom has definitely made me feel more confident and secure than I ever did in my 20s. Even though I can't ever get down to my pre-baby weight before having Honor, my jeans don't zip up the same way, and things just hang differently (all moms know how that goes!), I feel completely comfortable in my skin and my idea of perfection has changed. I don't really care about my body image anymore because it just doesn't matter now that I have children." --- the hideous Jessica Alba to iVillageReally, give me a damn break. She felt awkward about how "sexy" she perceived she wasn't before having babies. But now she's confident. Don't worry guys, now she feels comfortable in her own skin. Jessica Alba, she's just like us! Not.
5. 2011's Top baby names have been announced. This always fascinates me. I think it's a really interesting look at our culture. Usually, there are some weird ones. Top 10 girls and boys names of 2011 were:
The Today Show attributes the popularity of "Mason" to little Mason
Kardashian Disick. That's kind of a sad thought. I have a friend about to name her unborn Mason and I didn't even think of that. I bet she didn't either. I have another friend who might be having a Sophie soon. Other interesting tidbits: this is the first time the name "Michael" wasn't in the top 5 and the 13th straight year that Jacob has nabbed the top spot. Crazy!
Welp, I'm close to descending into full weekend mode. Close. Painfully close. Come on, 5:30!
