You Can’t Steer A Parked Car {Fun Friday}

Happy, happy weekend! It’s been an absolutely crazy, difficult week; hence the late post. There is an explanation soon to come, and I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule next week.

I know that I featured Brian Williams in last week’s post, but I have to include this news report.

How cool is that??

I saw this image this week, and it really spoke to me. In my post Character Cannot Be Developed In Ease and Quiet, I wrote about my struggles with transitioning from student to professional. Much of my stress stems from the notion that I may not choose the right or best path. I love what the image below says about making choices and getting started.


You can’t steer a parked car.


Have you heard that song “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor? Derek showed it to me, and it’s been stuck in my head all week. It puts a smile on my face every time I hear it.

Loving that retro vibe.

Finally, this video of a 5-year-old’s day at the fair is hilarious. “Apparently,” he picks up a lot of his language from his grandpa.

It’s like he’s an old man trapped in the body of a kid haha!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Pros and Cons of Making Food {Fun Friday}

Whoop, whoop! Happy Friday to you, my friends! I am super excited for this weekend. Derek’s coming home, and we have fun plans for Saturday. As I mentioned in yesterday’s favorite posts of July 2014, we will likely have an exciting announcement this weekend. Stay tuned. πŸ™‚

Now onto some videos, pictures, and stories that made me smile or laugh this week.


Adopt A Greyhound Atlanta posted the picture below on their Facebook page with the caption, “Athletes in retirement.”


Living the good life.

Doesn’t that look relaxing?

I’m not much of a country music fan, but every once in a while I hear a song that I like. Maddie and Tae recently put out a music video for their song “Girl In A Country Song,” and it cracked me up.

I also appreciate the message of the song. There’s a lot of talk about misogyny in rap, but you hardly ever hear people talk about it in country music.

Next up, NBC news anchor Brian Williams reported on the selection of his daughter Allison Williams (who you may recognize from HBO’sΒ Girls) to play Peter Pan in the network’s live production.


Finally, the image below sums up my everyday struggle with cooking.


If only fully cooked, delicious, healthy meals would just appear!

Have a lovely weekend!
