On my yahoo home page they have a "Trending Now" sidebar with what I expect is supposed to be happening, searched or popular topics. Sometimes I think they're fake and yahoo just stuck some random thing in there. Because today...Herniated Disc Surgery. Really? I mean, I've had one but I really hope that's not a trend. So anyway, jumbled thoughts and all this is my personal trending now post.
Kindle Fire: Okay, I got one for Christmas and it's been the best gift ever. I have been so bad at reading the past year or so. There are so many books I want to read but I'm lazy and never make the time. I guess by not having to turn a page it's really made things easy for me and I've read three books since Christmas. Going along with this trend is the Hunger Games series. Leave it to me to be a year or two behind the trends but I started these after Christmas and I really like them. I've avoided them because of the futuristic/science fiction-y idea but they've been great.
Zumba: My cousin Alisa and I bought gym memberships on living social. She's a superstar and goes to every class but surprisingly I've got hooked on a few classes too. It really helps when it takes 2 1/2 minutes from my driveway to a parking spot to get to the gym but I really actually enjoy it once I'm there. My favorite is our Zumba class. Who knew I would have so much fun and not dread going to an hour long class which turns me lobster face red and a sweating mess. A lot of it has to do with the instructor...he's amazing! At the end of a long day it's so therapeutic to dance around with a bunch of strangers (and my cousin) to a latin-themed Pump up the Jam.
Downton Abbey: Last weekend my cute friend Stacy mentioned this PBS series on her blog. Stacy has really amazing taste so I knew this could be worth watching. Then on Sunday there was an article in the Tribune about the second series starting and how it was even better than the first. Well, in just a few days I'm almost finished with the first season and I have all of the second season set up to record on the dvr. I LOVE it!! The costumes and sets are spectacular and the different story lines draw you right in. This is highly recommended! The episodes are on Netflix but I've been streaming them from amazon for free...you guessed it, on my Kindle! Thanks Stace...
Bathroom cell phone pictures: Even though it hasn't been that much of a winter yet. There are still some long days. When the crafts are done, one too many episodes of Caillou have been watched the next best thing is to put on a little makeup and take pictures.
Noel Gallagher: The first gift I ever gave Blake was an Oasis cd. Then Wonderwall became our song. Well, the Oasis brothers have broken up but lucky for us we're still going strong. Noel Gallagher has started his own band and he really brought us back in with this song. Romance! So as I start packing for a mini vacay retreat with my bestie I'll leave you with the video. This one will be 'trending' for awhile!
