Brazil’s 12th Man {Fun Friday}

Happy weekend to you! I should probably start calling these posts Fun Weekend, but Fun Friday has a better ring to it. I’m late with the post. Again. Sorry! Yesterday I left work and headed straight to Wilmington to spend the weekend with Derek. (If you didn’t see my last post, he’s in Wilmington for his OBGYN rotation.) I didn’t actually get here until after 8pm, at which point we were both starving and immediately went to dinner. Needless to say, blog posting wasn’t happening at 10pm on a Friday night. Though the combination of being deliriously tired and drinking one cocktail (doesn’t take much these days) could have led to my best writing yet! 😉

Without further ado, here are some pictures/stories/videos that made me smile or laugh this week.


In my Great Form Gary! {Fun Friday} post a couple of weeks ago, I included a video entitled “How to Make a Hit Pop Song.” Here’s part 2 to that video:

Now you know the more advanced techniques.

This next video is a classic. I’m sure most people have seen it already, but I laugh so hard every time I watch it.

FENTON!!!!

Did you see the latest World Cup games? The Germany vs. Brazil game was brutal. Brazilian fan Clovis Fernandes’ face says it all.

Fernandes considers himself Brazil’s “12th man,” for good reason. The FIFA video below explains Fernandes’ history of Brazilian soccer fandom.

In a humble act of good sportsmanship,  Fernandes handed over the replica of the World Cup trophy to some German fans.

What a guy.

Finally, I have absolutely loved hearing about Derek’s adventures in OBGYN. In reference to the First Moon Party video (seen in the First Moon Party {Fun Friday} post), I have been calling him “the vagician.” I personally find it hilarious, but Derek disagrees. 🙂 Joking aside, I’m very proud of him, and yesterday was a big day. Derek helped deliver a baby!! How cool is that?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Great Form Gary! {Fun Friday}

Happy weekend to you! I’m posting late again because I was having too much fun last night. Between studying for his Step 1 exam and traveling to California, Derek and I haven’t had much time together lately. We have declared this weekend “Ali and Derek Weekend.” Last night we went out to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. After dinner we watched an episode of House of Cards (we’re obsessed) at home and then went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2. Derek and I are both big animated movie fans, and How to Train Your Dragon is one of our favorites. The sequel was just as good. We highly recommend seeing it!

It was a great Friday night, and now I’m back to share videos, stories, and pictures that made me laugh or smile this week. Enjoy!


Have you ever wondered how pop music is made? Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to make a hit pop song. The one from the video is stuck in my head now.

Watch it again and see if you can catch all of the Jennifer Lawrence references.

I post a lot of animal videos, and this week is no exception. However, I’m stepping out of the typical dog and cat videos to show you Gary the goat. The gentleman narrating the video is Australian so please excuse the harsh language and enjoy the accent!

Great form Gary!

I thoroughly enjoyed this blog post on 12 Classic Mom Texts. My mom is actually a pretty good texter, but I would add on number 13 for her. Number 13: Excessive use of smiley faces and exclamation points!! 🙂 🙂 !!! (I secretly love it thought because it always makes me laugh.)

I’ll wrap things up with a picture of my favorite demonstration of patriotism at the World Cup thus far. Teddy Roosevelt was spotted cheering during the USA vs. Portugal game! How kind of him to time travel just for the game. 🙂
