A Friday Where Spring is in the Air

Dance Party....

Three cheers to best day of the work week, woohooooo! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the weekend. Ours is actually quite packed yet weekend work is so much better than work week work, right? I hope y'all had a great week, let's check out some favorites.

Favorite quote of the week: With the impending move comes the time to purge and Babyspice Suggested the Marie Konda "Spark Joy" method. I've seen it around the blog world and think I might give the book a go. The quote below perfectly describes my sentiments towards 'things' and I understand I need to get better at letting objects go that don't SPARK JOY.

Favorite moment of the week: Wednesday was super gorgeous so Le Husband and I wanted to do something outside. Unfortunately due to a long conference call our bike plans were a bust leaving our dinner plans in the lurch. So we decided to walk to a new BBQ joint close to our apartment and enjoyed a lovely evening together. This is something I'll remember when we move and it was so nice to just relax and be together. #iateafullpoundofbeefshortribs #delicious

Favorite video of the week:  While this video was posted on Veteran's day people on Facebook have been posting it recently due to March Madness anticipation. Athletes not standing at attention during the National Anthem drives me bonkers, I get so angry when people don't respect the flag and everyone who fought in it's honor. Kudos to this coach, I can't wait to watch the Hokies represent the respect our Veterans and flag deserve. 


Favorite links of the week: Hope you enjoy and read something fun.

Downton Abbey sounds a lot less classy with an American accent. #watchthisnow

The DCC share their defining moments in overcoming stereotypes.

I'm normally not one to hurrah lawsuits, but I was very glad Erin Andrews won her suit.


There still are incredibly kind strangers in the world and that makes me happy.

Esquire meets Emma Watson.

Favorite funnies of the week: Giggles and laughs upon chuckles.

Kristina (Ms.Modify) said...

I LOVE that quote, so true holding on to the past or fear of the future often holds us back! Also, I agree...how disrespectful those players didn't stand for our flag!

Karli | Sept. Farm said...

those were hilarious. i'm totally doing the replace the pictures with family and friends. that is going to be a winner every time!

Jenn said...

bahahaha those funnies are so great! Love them!

Courtney B said...

Love, love, love that first quote!! And yay for a gorgeous evening with your man! Eric has been getting home at 5 from work each night (what?! first time since we moved here that he's been home from work before 7!!) so last night I packed a picnic dinner and we went to the park to eat, play and soak up the gorgeous weather! That's something I daydreamed of doing when it wasn't possible before! It's the simple things in life, isn't it?!

Emily said...

HA kind of crazy the person took a picture instead of saving their child! lol BBQ sounds good right about now. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Kelsey @ The Peacock Roost said...

Definitely read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up! So good and helpful :) I can't stand it when people are disrespectful during the national anthem either.

Emily said...

Mmmmmm, beef short ribs. Yum yum yum. Also something I never ate until we moved to Texas, how have I lived this long without them?!

Ahhhh the Downton video, haha! I am dying.

Kait said...

HAHAH! Your memes are always the best. BTW, I love that quote about tidying up. I really need to pick up that book!

Nikki @ makeupHER said...

Seriously LOLing at all your funnies! The guess who board with family members is so hilarious! I find it so utterly disrespectful when people don't stand and salute the flag during the National Anthem! Hope you have a wonderful weekend friend!

Katie Elizabeth said...

I didn't follow the story super closely, but I was so glad to hear Erin Andrews won, too - the whole thing is disturbing. And I can't even read that flight attendant article, I probably don't want to know lol! Happy Friday!

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

I was laughing so hard at all of those memes. And yay for gorgeous weather and walking to dinner. Have a good weekend!!!

Kayla MKOY said...

OH my word these funnies are amazing. I love the Nemo one! ;) happy Friday girl!!!

Sara Elizabeth said...

LOL love love love the funnies today!!! And that walk to dinner with your hubs. It's the little things. ;)

Melissa @ Always, Lissa said...

Ugh. Losing an hour of sleep stinks, but thankfully, I'm on a late shift because losing that hour and being on a 4am shift ... I'd probably stab somebody. Okay, not true. But my mood would probably be that way. Oops.

Mmm. BBQ. I wish we'd get some sun here. I mean, I know I live in Washington but it's been ridiculous. Rain for the last two weeks. It has officially become the rainiest winter yet. Crazy!

Katie Clooney said...

Hi Pinky.. Just found your blog and you are adorable. Can't wait to read some posts from the past to learn more about you and your sisters. Hope your Saturday is full of fun.

Ashley @ ladyacray.blogspot.com said...

hahaha I DIED with the Pinterest funny - I most definitely am sending this to my little cousin.

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

lol! the auto correct meme is my life. i swear, my phone refuses to let me swear when want but the changes its mind and auto corrects to the most awful things when i don't want it to :|

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

i laughed so hard at the final destination one. SO TRUE i ain't getting behind that!

i'm scared to click on the flight attendant link.. lol. but i will.

oh that quote about holding on to things - so true. i read the book and it didn't blow my mind or change my life like it did for others, but now when i look at this dress i've had for 5 years that somehow shrunk in the wash and i will never ever ever ever wear again but i don't want to get rid of it because it cost me $200 (in AUD but still?)... i can get rid of it because it served its purpose and it's time to let go. theoretically. it might still be in my closet. don't judge. haha.
