Fun Friday #2

Well, I’m back for Round 2 of Fun Friday! Smile

Let’s just jump right in, shall we?

1. First of all, this month is packed with fun things going on.  This weekend, we plan to take Addie to her first pumpkin patch, and I can’t wait!  We also have Brandon’s dad’s birthday, Brandon’s birthday (yay!), my mom visiting, a trip to the town of Helen for Oktoberfest, Addie’s 6 month pictures (eek!), and I have a weekend retreat with my women’s mentoring group.  Wow, I’m tired just thinking about all of it!

2. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to read to Addie when she has other plans for her books …

No joke, they all end up in her mouth.  And if I try to keep them out of her reach while I’m reading, she grunts and strains and makes loud noises of protest until I give in. #sucker

3. But I do have to give the girl credit.  She’s getting better at sitting up each and every day!

Clearly, I’m a proud momma. Winking smile

4. The new Top Chef season started this week.  I’m so excited!

Anyone else watch Top Chef??  I love this show.  I’m constantly amazed at the dishes the contestants create.

Oh and have I mentioned before that I met Sam, one of the cutest most talented chefs to ever be on the show?

Oh I have?  Oops. Smile with tongue out

5. I wanted to share one of my current favorite blogs with y’all.

Mix and Match Family Header

Shay is the creator of “mix and match family.”  She also happens to be the sister of this guy:


But that’s not why I love her blog.  I love her because she’s a fellow momma, Jesus lover, and Starbucks fanatic.  She is also quite the fashionista … whereas sadly, I am not.  So I love her blog because she not only posts pictures of her cute outfits for inspiration, but she also includes links to websites where you can actually buy the clothes.  So she takes all of the guess work out of it!  She’ll do whole posts on jeans, boots, shorts, etc, and put links to all of the items that she likes.

So if you’re fashion-challenged like I am, I highly recommend perusing her site … hopefully you’ll find some good ideas, like I did! Smile

6. And if you haven’t seen this video yet, you need to.  It’s pretty funny.

I think my favorite part was Joseph Gordon Levitt lip syncing to “Super Bass.”  I don’t even like that song, but he makes me forget that I don’t like it! Thumbs up

That’s it for me, my friends!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Question for ya …

What are your weekend plans?

    I’m curious – what are you doing for Addie’s 6 month photos? Are you getting them professionally done or is a friend doing them? I’ve been terrible about “professional” photos with Hunter, but mostly because they’re just so pricey!

    I need to check out that blog! I think I looked at it once before, but then I totally forgot about it. She sounds like my kinda gal!

    Happy Friday my friend! Love ya!

      I’m getting them professionally done by the same person who did our newborn pics. I agree that they can be pricey, but there are some things that I think are worth the money … I think we all have different things that we “splurge” on, and mine is probably pics! ;) I’ll do them one more time at her year birthday professionally, and then I probably won’t do anymore for a while. But there are so many people who are trying to break in to photography now, so you could probably get them done for fairly cheap. Sometimes people will even do it for free, just to have the opportunity to use your pics as part of their portfolio! Maybe do some google searching or look on craigslist!

    I saw a really funny youtube video this week. It was Amy Webb, and it was on the TEDtalks series. She is a numbers nerd (like me), and she talks about how she hacked her online dating experience. It was so funny. Here is the link:

    I loved that YouTube video you shared. It had me laughing out loud and tears in my eyes. Those are the best kind of laughs. They had me singing out loud with them, thanks so much for sharing. I needed that. Have a great weekend.

    that is so funny b/c I LOVED JGL singing that song too and I hate that song! He killed it though! I didn’t know Top Chef started again this week so thanks for mentioning it. I love that show! I’ve watched every season and of course last season was my favorite since it was in Seattle…I got to see bits of home all during watching it! =)

    Hey Kristen, I think this post was really fun! Thanks for making me laugh with the videos.. and.. I remember our Top Chef cooking lessons! Speaking of that, I do think I may be able to actually watch it now, since I have cable.. one of the perks of a hospital stay, I guess ;)

    • notsodomesticated

      Haha way to find the silver lining to being stuck in the hospital! Love it! :)
