Top 3 Things: Birthday Wish Edition

It’s my birthday! More specifically, it’s my golden birthday! I was unaware “golden birthdays” were even a thing until last week, but I’m pretty sure someone said that you are supposed to get EVERYTHING you want on your golden birthday. Right? (Just go with it…)


Here are the Top 3 Things that I would love for my birthday:


#3 All the cake! I’m on a diet right now that prevents me from eating any sugar or white flour. Soooo…cake is 100% off limits. Unless someone has a clever recipe that doesn’t have any of those things in it. Help a sister out! I miss cake.


#2 Come on. You know what I would really love for my birthday….



#1 My heart breaks when I think about our four-legged furry friends out in the cold and sans-snuggles. What I would love more than cake or even more than Benedict Cumberbatch (GASP!) is for everyone to help out our furry friends. The Humane Society of Johnson County has hundreds of cat shelters available. If you’ve noticed some feral or stray cats around your area, go pick up a shelter or two and help them stay warm throughout the rest of this winter.







Please send your gift ATTN to Joanna to the QMIX studios ;)

Top 3 Things: Spa Edition

For the first time this weekend, I experienced something physical that was so incredibly relaxing. I don’t understand why people don’t start their day off with it every morning. It was nothing short of magical and now that I’ve been through it once, I can’t wait to do it again.


Of course, I’m referring to my very first spa treatments! I had a facial and a full body massage and I would highly recommend doing it, if you haven’t already!


But like all first times, there were some pretty awkward moments. Although, I’m fairly certain that most of those awkward moments were just in my head.


And with that, here are the Top 3 Things that I thought about while going through my very first spa treatments:



#3 “Don’t make any weird sounds…don’t make any weird sounds…don’t make any weird sounds…don’t make any weird sounds…” Of course, it didn’t help that I had just watched this scene from Friends the day before…


#2 “Am I talking to much?…Am I not talking enough?” I didn’t want to be a rude massage-ee!


#1 “I wonder if she noticed that my legs are freshly shaved…?” It’s winter! This is the time of year when shaving is not required every day…week….month….or whatever. Of COURSE I made sure to basically give myself lots of pre-grooming so I wouldn’t be judged for my Chewbacca-legs.

This is a big day for Marcel the Shell fans!


We’ve seen the first video of the tiny, matter of fact shell and he stole our hearts. Then came the second video, equally heart warming. Now there is a third installment of Marcel The Shell With Shoes On! Enjoy!


If you haven’t seen the first two videos, Google them. Also, keep in mind the tiny little guy is voiced by this talented lady. You’ll also get some background info if you have absolutely no idea what all of this crazy shell stuff is…


I’m so happy!!

Top 3 Things: Halloween Spirit Edition

Alright, you. Halloween is NEXT Friday. And I think that Halloween should be like Christmas. By that, I mean we should be in the Halloween spirit weeks before it actually gets here. So if you’re not in the creepy mood yet, it’s okay. That’s what I’m here for!


Here are the Top 3 VERY SHORT scary stories to give you goose bumps and will for sure put you in that crEeEeEEeepy Halloween spirit:


#3  “I always thought my cat had a staring problem – she always seemed fixated on my face. Until one day, when I realized that she was always looking just behind me.”




#2 I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy, check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy, there’s somebody on my bed.”




#1 The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams. I sat bolt upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06, I heard my closet door creak open.”


Top 3 Things: Game of Thrones Prep Edition


Well hello there! I don’t know about you, but I am super glad fall is here and most of my favorite TV shows are back on the air.

Only thing that would make all this better would be if Game of Thrones was back too. But alas, we must wait until Spring. Womp womp. If you’re also going through Game of Thrones withdrawal like I am, I have a few ideas for how you can pass the time and prep for the upcoming 5th season!


Here are the Top 3 Things you can do to get ready for the return of Game of Thrones:


#3 Host a Game of Thrones party! Be sure to include themed food, viewing of some of your favorite episodes and/or scenes, games and a costume contest. This will surely get you through a few hours of withdrawal.

You can send my invitation to the QMIX studios…


#2 Read the books. Duhdoy. Or watch something else with dragons in it. Because dragons. My recommendations? How to Train Your Dragon, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Sleeping Beauty.



#1 Download the SWEET new app that helps you learn Dothraki! This is real life! And there was much nerd-rejoicing!




Now go download it and get to work!
