Hello Friday!

Thanks to all the ice days we've had the past two weeks, my department at work is behind on A LOT of our projects. This being said, I have to work all day today (normally I work half days on Fridays). I don't see a lot of sympathy coming from anyone out there!! :)

Over at For The Love of Blogs, they are co-hosting Joyful Moments today. We were asked to post a picture(s) that brings us joy and to blog about it!

These two pictures bring me joy because I LOVE being an aunt (or in this case, a great-aunt). My niece posted these pictures of her sons, "C" and "E", on Facebook. Just seeing their precious faces brings me joy and makes my day 1000 times better!! I can't wait to see them again, hopefully that will be soon!! They are my sweet chunky monkeys! :)

If you would like to participate in 5 Question Friday, click the icon below!

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home Makeover or TLC's What Not To Wear?
I think I would go with What Not To Wear (seeing that I don't own a house). I'm pretty sure Clint and Stacy would rip apart what I currently wear, but at least I would get new clothes out of the deal. Side note: I usually make it about 10 minutes into Extreme Home Makeover before I start crying (I honestly think that is the purpose of the show- see how fast you can make the viewers start crying).

2. Do you have any tattoos?
Here is a picture of the tattoo I got in college (please see caption below the picture).

Before my mom freaks out and calls threatening my life, this is NOT real. My friend painted it on me one time (we got bored). I have a fear of needles, I could never get a tattoo!

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?
Well, when I have kids, I'll tell them some things. ;) I'm sure at some point I will say, "when I was your age, I didn't have the internet/cell phones/flying cars..." (I'm convinced one day we will have flying cars!!) ;)

Back to the Future 2 was set in 2015. They have 4 years to get flying cars up and running, or in this case,  flying! :)
4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?
It depends. If there is a red light camera at the stoplight, I make every attempt to stop! ;)

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?
What about chocolate chips? ;) I guess it all depends, I like both chips and chocolate. I'm picky about my chocolate though (hey, I'm picky about the rest of my food, chocolate shouldn't be an exception). I'm not a fan of dark chocolate (I know, I know, I'm just weird). I love milk chocolate though. As I've mentioned before, I'm not a fan of cakes or pies, BUT I have a weakness for candy. I love Snickers and Milky Ways. And M&Ms! :) Oh, and regarding chips, my parents introduced me to these vegetable chips. They are REALLY good by the way!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! We are finally getting back to "Texas friendly" temperatures this weekend!! Thank goodness!



  1. Flying cars like the Jetsons? ;) My brother and I always watched that growing up and thought that's what it would be like in the year 2000. Um, not so much. :)

  2. Yay Friday!! Sorry you have to work a full day instead of just your regular half day! I'm sure Clinton and Stacy would tear my wardrobe to pieces!!!

  3. I mix my chocolate chips...milk chocolate and reeses peanut butter. YUM! Those kiddos sure are cute :)

  4. Love the pictures, as usual. I like a combo of chocolate chips, craisins, and pecans. YUM. Glad to hear your weather is getting back to normal. :-)

  5. Oh, I can't stand dark chocolate either!

    That is an incredible drawing! I'm always so impressed with other people's art skills. Especially since I have none. :)

  6. He is a cutie! Thanks for sharing the weather, you suck! :) Just kidding. Enjoy and Have a great weekend! Wish some of the warmth my way if you please! ♥ BJ

  7. The tattoo thing, that's funny! I'm not a chocolate person, at all! My mom used to give me a small box of chocolates for Valentine's Day. She finally quit when she realized they were still somewhere in the bottom of my fridge at Christmas. If I eat any candy, it's Starburst, Skittles, and/or Twizzlers. My 17 yr old sister is a horrible backseat driver, she always yells at me for stopping if I can at yellow lights. According to her, those mean speed up (she's not ever driving my car, ever)!
    Happy Friday!!

  8. What cute pictures of your boys! Sorry, that you had to work a full day today. No fun. However hope you have Saturday and Sunday off! Here's to the weekend! Thanks so much for linking up! :)

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday, Rachel! I never thought about the fact that Back to the Future was set in 2014--that's not too far away!

    We are expected to get warm weather this next week too--almost 60 by the end of the week, which is great considering the high lately has been around 20-30 degrees!
