I don’t know about you but 2018 is FLYING BY. It’s probably because I was miserable and doing a Whole30 last month, but I can’t believe it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, which is a holiday I do not care about in the least and would love if I could enjoy my entire existence without ever drinking a “green beer.”
Whether it was our new website launch (what do you think!?) or The Olympics, all the East Coast snow or my obsession with that Waco show, I missed a lot in the recent weeks. (Other than wine). So I assume you probably did too. Here is what you probably missed:
Jessica Jones is Back.
All the new Jessica Jones episodes went live on Netflix last Thursday, and I was so excited to dig back in!
…Until I remembered I had NO idea what happened at the end of Season 1 except that something happened with the former Doctor from Doctor Who (David Tennant), and I felt weird about my sexual attraction to him.
So before we dove into Season 2, my boyfriend and I re-watched the last episode of Season 1. It was crazy! I feel like I haven’t seen it in 10 years! Do you REMEMBER how it all went down? I totally forgot.
And then we started Season 2. We’re just one episode in, but so far so good. It was a great set-up episode, though, I was spoiled by watching what I thought was a Netflix recap-trailer of Season one. It was not. It actually spoiled a MAJOR plot point for this upcoming season.
Season 2 looks dark and crazy, and I already miss Luke Cage (Maybe he’ll be back? But he’s not in the trailer. No spoilers here)
I did another Whole30.
I warned you I was going to. Actually, today is Day 43 of our Whole30, and my boyfriend and I are in our “reintroduction.” I should write a follow up about how my second Whole30 went, but basically it was: Easier and Boring. Spoiler: I lost 6 pounds. So I’m happy.
But I’ve learned that I have extreme pain hours after eating cheese (please be a fluke, please be a fluke), and beans are the worst thing to ever hit my stomach (and…. other body parts). So they may be cut out of my diet. We introduce gluten today, and then we’re done reintroduction this week. Party time in my MOUTH. (minus beans, cheese, and probably gluten. So, more like party time at your weird gluten-free, vegan single Uncle’s house)
What made it easier this time was: having a buddy that didn’t live in my house (Bea is a great one!) and our shared spreadsheet of meal ideas and tracking a meal plan: Here it is if you want to use anything or be inspired. If you have a MUST EAT meal from the Whole30, share it in the comments and I’ll add it to the list and to the next time I do the Whole30 (hahaha!)
Book Club, The Movie
There is a movie that is made for my group of friends (in 30 years), and you need to watch the trailer immediately:
A bunch of girls getting together to read books to stimulate their minds but instead stimulate their libidos? If that’s not the byline of That’s Normal, I don’t know what is!
(Except we’d never read Fifty Shades. Ever)
The trailer for Book Club gave me a goofy smile and, I’ll admit, even a little tear as I was so happy to (basically see the whole movie in the trailer) see a film talking about sex and love found later in life!
I can’t wait for this one! Book Club is in theaters May 18th
We have a look for Thats-Normal.com!
Okay you probably didn’t miss that one because you’re here, and it’s pretty obvious our look from 2012 is gone. We’ve had a lot of great feedback, have been busy fixing bugs and are excited about the opportunity to roll out more features on this new site. Also for the first time EVER, we posted 20 articles last week. TWENTY. Go back and read a few if you missed any. SO MUCH GOOD STUFF!
Don’t miss: Our TN E-Newsletter sign up, which is killer. I mean it pops up, it’s in your face, it’s annoying AF and begging you to give us your email so we can sell your address to the highest bidder (P0rn.com).
JK JK! We really promise to only send you the emails you sign up for- Outlander updates, TV updates, book updates, and our monthly newsletter, whenever we get around to putting one together gain
Okay, maybe we didn’t miss as much as I thought. Did anything really happen in February, anyway?
