Friday I’m In Love (with these things)

Friday I’m In Love (with these things)

If you’re too young to remember The Cure’s Friday I’m In Love, then you’re too young to be reading this site. 😉 Sorry!


There are some things this week that I’ve really loved and I’m going to share them right here and now.

** My friend wrote about Taking Back Christianity. I’m not sure I’ve read anything I’ve agreed with so much in my entire life. Or at least this month. She hit the nail right on the head.

** The Bloggess is coming to Atlanta next week. I KNOW! I’m definitely going and it sounds like I’ll have a few other girls going with me.

** Angie, my Phickles Pickles friend, has taken #FineChinaFriday and the #TeacupRevolution to a new level. Her new addition, Hottie, was born with a china teacup in its paw.

** Speaking of #FineChinaFriday… play along! Pull out that dusty china, silver or crystal and enjoy whatever you’re having for dinner on it. (Guys, you can put Mom’s breakfast on it on Sunday morning, too — hint hint!)

** My baby is about to finish his first grade year. WHEN DID HE GROW UP? He had a crossover ceremony for Scouts on Tuesday and it was all kinds of adorable.

** It was a week ago now, but if you missed the May The Fourth Be With You party, well, you missed out completely. I promise there’s another post coming about the food and all that. But for now, you just get pictures of the fun! (ps: I assume they give out Mother of the Year awards on Mother’s Day?)

** I get to see my best friend this weekend. We’re going to the lake/pond and she’s going to be doing our photo shoot for the Band Back Together 2013 calendar. Yep. Jason AND I are going to be in a calendar. How awesome is that? I mean, it’s because we have a kid that died so I’d rather NOT have to be in a calendar, but yeah. Never been in one so this is kinda fun!

That’s all I know right now.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend and peaceful Mother’s Day.

ps: Men, don’t forget to help the littles get a gift for mom.

pps: If you know someone who has lost a baby and has empty arms, make sure you acknowledge that she, in fact, is a mother. There’s nothing in the world more painful than a Mother’s Day with no baby in your arms.

I know. It’s #FineChinaFriday. I’m not celebrating. Why, you ask?

We’ve been celebrating nerd-style today for Star Wars Day! You know, May the Fourth Be With You.

I plan on giving a how-to on the food, dress and other details but right now, I’m going to just let you enjoy a few pictures.

Death Star Melon (put me over the edge for that Mother Of The Year Award, I think)

Tie Fighters, Han Solo in Carbonite, Yoda Soda and Yoda plates

Endor Trail Mix, Wookie Cookies, Thermal Detonators, Leia’s Buns, Tie Fighters.

The Gang in their Luke and Leia outfits with their homemade light sabers.

They wanted to *cheers* with their Yoda Soda!

The battle is on!

And on.

Jason got the mess beat out of him!

My favorite picture! Little Leias.

And then Mama had to have a Jar Jar Beer.

And now I must collapse until tomorrow when we will go to the museum with a friend, drink mint juleps all afternoon until the Kentucky Derby and then eat Mexican to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

I’ll be on the sofa waiting for that invitation to the Mother of the Year Awards.


The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For… Star Wars 101 with Henry
