favorite friday!

every friday is fun friday in our house.

what is fun friday, you ask?

something that I made up for my kids once both of them were in school for six and a half hours a day.  the last day of the school week to look forward to as a reward for not grumbling about getting up and going to school everyday.  plus, it's a way that I get to look forward to spending time with them too...I love my kids...yes, yes I do.  typically it involves getting a movie from red box with taco bell or pizza for after football practice.  but sometimes if matt gets involved, he's taken us bowling or we'll all go on a family bike ride to freestone and feed the ducks and watch the sun set.

so, keeping in the spirit of "fun friday", I'll let you in on a few of my friday "favorites" and my "not so muches".  (I can say muches [muh-ch-ez] because it is my blog and I was never so smart in school.)

this friday's favorites!
1. diet coke.  I know I talk too much about it, but it seriously is one of my all-time-most-favorite-til-I-die favorite things and deserves a first place nod this week. plus, as a bonus right now there's a BIG heart on the side of the can that makes me happy when I drink it. :)
2. little big town.  they are one of my favorite bands right now.  super "up" music that helps me edit faster.  and I feel like when I listen to them that I am sincerely from the Boondocks.  (even though, I am not and am not super sure what a boondock is or where it is.)
3. cranberry mandarin candles from walmart.  when you think of candles, walmart is not the first place that comes to mind...but they carry the most beautiful smelling candle that honestly makes me happy.  if a smell can do that, then this one does and is worth getting.  plus, they're a fraction of the price of the yankee candle that smells the same.
4. lotion kleenex.  when you are as sick as often as I am...tissues matter.  a lot.  and these ones are the best.  sorry puffs.
5. the snow boarding event in the olympics.  I am officially on shaun white's bandwagon.  he was LEAP years ahead of the rest of the competition and he made me want to go out and learn how to snowboard at thirty something.  not an easy feat, I assure you. :)  plus, his team had really cool plaid jackets and jeans that they snowboarded in which beat the stink out of the french guys pink spandex that he snowboarded in.  usa won before the event even started in the clothes category. just sayin'.

the "not-so-muches"
1. bad customer service.  I won't say where I went to receive this less than stellar service...but it is a well known place that should definitly know better.  and the even suckier part of this is that is wasn't the first time I've been there to observe this bad customer service.  shame on me, I guess.  the flipside of being bugged by this restaurant is that it inspires me to deliver better customer service because I know what it feels like to not receive it.  nuff said.
2. sickness.  I hate boogers.  well not really, boogers can be kinda fun in a gross kind of a way.  but when they are around non-stop...it kinda blows. ha, I said blows about boogers.  yup, again it's my blog. :)  but I will most definitly be glad when they are gone from my house.  four tissue boxes in three weeks is not a good thing.
3.  anger.  I am learning as I get older that anger is a wasted ugly emotion.  it causes me to not think correctly and to think negatively and then speak ugly.  so I am resolving to not be angry and let things go.  it doesn't happen often, but "i pity the fool" :) who gets in my way when I do.  or maybe I should pity me because of how ugly it makes me look when I do get angry.

that's it...that's my "favorites" and my "not-so-muches" for this week and because I'm a photographer...here is a parting pic of me being happy doing what I love:)  shot by my amazing sister...check her out here.  have a great weekend and an even more amazing fun friday! :)

We must be related, I love diet coke, hate boogers, and hate bad customer service. The snowboarders rock!...love that they wear jeans. I always wonder if my boys will ever turn out as cool! And I was just thinking the other day how even though life is crazy most days....diet cherry coke is happiness in a can.
