Fun Findings Friday #142

I’m not sure if you feel the same way or not, but this week FLEW by! I can’t believe it’s already Friday again! It was a bit of a rough start this morning considering an iron fell on me (OW!) and my shoe rack decided to collapse. But hey, I’m pretty excited for the weekend to be here!

Tijuana Flats Breast Cancer Partnership

One of my favorite local eateries is Tijuana Flats, a delicious Tex-Mex restaurant. During the month of September (until Sunday, the 20th), all T-Flats locations will be selling 6 varieties of their hot sauce, a commeorative cup for a $1 donation, and will offer a “make it pink” option for tacos to promote awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you live near one of the restaurant locations, I highly recommend you stop in! The food is delicious and it’s benefitting a great cause this month!

20 Fun Facts About “The Golden Girls”

This week marks the 30th anniversary of The Golden Girls, one of my favorite shows, ever! While it’s been around longer than I have, I have some wonderful memories curling up on the couch with my Nana when I was younger watching this show, and years later, still enjoy (and understand a lot more of) it! I stumbled across this article filled with fun facts about the beloved show and couldn’t believe that Estelle Getty (who played Sophia) had stage fright, or that Queen Elizabeth II is a huge fan!

Krampus Movie Trailer

I just discovered the “legend” of the Krampus last month when doing some research on my upcoming Europe trip. I’m obsessed with all things Christmas, so I was really surprised there was a Christmas tradition I wasn’t in the loop on (granted, it’s primarily an Austrian one). The Krampus is supposed to be St. Nicholas’ counterpart, who “takes care of” those on the naughty list. Google pictures of this creature at your own risk, but ahh! Who thought something that looks like it came out of a haunted house during Halloween could accompany Santa around?! What a scary thought! Regardless, I’m pretty excited that Universal’s releasing a movie about it in December! Check out the trailer below.

  • Yum Tijuana Flats! I love when people offer support for Breast cancer! I will always donate the $1 or more.

    So cool Tijuana Flats is partnering up for such a good cause. Happy Friday!

    • They do this partnership every year, it’s the best!

  • I love the Golden Girls! And Krampus? That sounds freaky!

    • It does! I’m hoping it’s not a super cheesy movie though!

  • Kristin always talks about how much she loves Tijuana Flats! I wish we had one here so I could see what all the fuss is about. And OMG yes Krampus looks SO GOOD. The poster is PERFECT and the trailer looks ridiculously fun! There’s a Krampus episode of Supernatural if you ever watch that and Opa had an experience with him when he was kid!

    • It’s SO good! Next time you’re here we’ll have to go! And yesss Krampus! I was talking to Opa about it when I first discovered it a month or two ago when researching Christmas things in Europe. I can’t believe I’ve gone all this time without knowing about it!

  • I literally just heard about krampus just the other day! I get terrified just watching that trailor so I won’t be watching, but I’m passin on the word!!

    • Haha I think if the whole world knew about Krampus and its history, nobody would ever be on the naughty list :)
