Friday Fluff: Nerky Said It Best

My latest blog slump is no big secret, and if you guys were hoping that when I finally posted again it was going to be some epic post outlining what I have been eating (or not eating) and my workout routine that has led to my 25 lb (so far) weight loss, you are going to be disappointed.

I am going to refer to this as my Friday Fluff post....nothing earth shattering, but kind of fun none the less.  Unless you are living under a rock, you have at least heard about,  if not watched, the super hyped 50 Shades of Grey trailer.  I am not going to go on and on about how I think that there is a bit of a casting problem with the Christian character....been there done that.  BUT, for the record Charlie Hunnam WOULD HAVE KILLED IT! (Isn't that right HeatherHolli and Megan?)  What is done is done.  I am just going to embrace it and for once in my life look forward to to that devil of a holiday St. Valentine's Day....just this once!

On more than one occasion, I have heard people (men and women) say that it is horribly written...why in the world would you waste your time reading that garbage, all the while, E.L James is laughing all the way to the bank.  Ummmm, hello!  It is isn't supposed to be rocket science, - sex sells!!!!  I could attempt to write something even a quarter as witty as Nerky did to explain it OR I can do you all a favor and just send you over to her Frisky Friday post.  It is dead on and written in her dry, deadpan style that makes her blog a must read for me.  I guess now would be a good time to admit that I am more of a stalker because I rarely comment, but I am there for each and every post.  Not only is she funny but she has lost a sh*t ton of weight...yep, she's a rockstar!!!

If you are one of those people that is wondering what all the hype is this link....go ahead....I couldn't have said it better myself!!!!!!!
And just because I am feeling feisty today, I am linking up with Whitney for the first time ever...yep I'm a #backthatazzup virgin:

Laters, Baby!  Have a great weekend!


  1. First of all, I am LOVING this blog design. Secondly, I'm a horrible friend for not saying something sooner. Third, I like Nerky's perspective on our 50 Shades flick. I read a blog post today that said "If you're a Christian, don't watch 50 Shades of Gray." Umm, excuse me, but I completely disagree on many levels. Too many to list but I must say this: in relationships we are torn, and in relationships we are healed. There is an element of grace in 50 Shades, if you're willing to look for it. Among the steamy love scenes and helicopter rides. Christian or not, everybody's got a little freak in them and some of us are more willing to let our freak flag fly!!!!!!!

  2. You've been busy taking care of yourself, you're allowed a blog break ;). You know, I've still not read 50 Shades... I think I'm the last living woman that hasn't read it. I do know that Charlie would have been amazing in the movie though. I drool over him in SOA. Mike thinks I like the show when I'm secretly hoping for an ass shot.

  3. I'm sooooo bummed my Charlie isn't in the movie but I am happy with his new cologne ads. He's so yummy!
    I will totally go see the movie simply because I want to know how its interpreted on screen from the book.
    Congrats on the 25 lbs! That is such a big deal and huge accomplishment.

  4. I don't know how I missed this post, I'll have to blame it on Carousel frenzy!! Anyway YES I saw the trailer and I have to admit it looks pretty good....BUT Charlie would have SO killed it (better too I bet)! I will have to go check out Nerky's perspective. Sounds interesting!!
    Here's a peak at Charlie that I'll think you'll like if you haven't seen it.

  5. Nice new blog design! You MUST go see 50 Shades The Musical if you are ever in NYC. It is hysterical and makes you laugh at every chapter of the book.

    I even wrote a blog post review about it.

  6. Blog looks awesome-and I've been following your journey on IG-you are rocking out, Jules! 25 pounds is AWESOME!!!! Inspiring me to lace up those sneakers more than once or twice this week. :)

  7. Well I am late to the party, as I just started to read this book.
    Who the heck is this Charlie everyone is talking about, I must find out.
    Ok, just googled him…yes he is a cutie isn't he ;)
    Congrats on your weight loss, you sure earned it with all your hard work and your early morning workouts:)


I love meeting new bloggers and love reading your comments....each and every one!
