Happy 4th of July! {Fun Friday}

Happy 4th of July!


It’s a patriotic fun Friday here on Brown is the New Pink. Derek and I are hosting a cookout this evening and possibly going to see fireworks tonight at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill. I’ll be posting a full weekend recap at the beginning of next week, but for now, enjoy a few things that made me smile or laugh this week.

Did you watch the US vs. Belgium game?? I’m bummed that we’re out of the World Cup, but it was a great game. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It makes me want to watch soccer more often. One good thing that came out of the loss was a compilation of photos of things Tim Howard could save. The first picture on there is perfect for today.

Next up is a very bizarre but entertaining video of a man who puts on his pants without using his hands.

The music makes it so much better.

On a more serious note, the following Always commercial addresses how the phrase “like a girl” is used in a derogatory manner. It’s cool and eye-opening to see how differently adults and young girls react to the phrase.

I think it’s a great campaign. When I ran cross country in high school we made shirts with a similar message.


I run #LikeAGirl. (P.S. The shirt is part of my t-shirt blanket, which is the greatest thing ever! Mine was made by Project Repat, and I highly recommend them. The blankets are cut and sewn in the US, and one of the companies that makes the quilts is in Morganton, NC!)

Last, but certainly not least, is a video of fireworks filmed with a drone. So beautiful and cool!

Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend!
