Friday Finds

1247594_17127823

Welcome to the Almost Weekend. Back in the day, schools had Good Friday off. No more. It's hard to reflect on the Lord when I am working. It's also hard to watch Good Morning America and Gilmore Girl reruns. Rude. (I also used to watch Dawson's Creek reruns, until I figured out that no matter how many times they cycled through the entire series, Joey still wasn't gonna end up with Dawson. Katie Holmes has never picked the right men.)

This week I discovered a new food blog.

Remembered why I love Tyler Perry.

Fell back in love with Weird Al Yankovic. (1:40 mark is my favorite)

Discovered what happened to “Chunk” from Goonies.

Had lunch at my favorite dive with super nonfiction author Holley Gerth, who writes amazing blog posts like this.

Discovered I don't have to rent out Miller to make my house payment.

Found some cool Civil War photos.

Remembered to remind you about our contest.

And found someone who understands the joy of Easter. Or something.

Happy Weekend! Happy Easter! May your eggs be deviled and your heart be full.

Thanks Jenny! I just might have to tell my parents about the ‘house – billboard’ thing. Then again, knowing my luck, Kotex would probably choose our house. Call me crazy, but I DO NOT want people thinking my home is extra absorbent. Just me, I understand. Well thanks for the Friday morn laughs!

P.S. I’m on Spring Break! None of my friends are though 🙁

You’re not on Spring Break right now? I am…not to brag or anything! 🙂

I can’t believe that you had lunch with THE Holley Gerth! I love her blog so much! It’s one of the best out there…right after yours of course!

Yeah…so not to smear it in Ms. Jones, but I have spring break all this week. And Monday. Just saying 😀

Anyway I can’t wait till There You’ll Find Me either! Is Finley gonna be quirky like Lucy from Save the Date or smart and savvy like Bella from the Charmed Life series? Or a little of both like Maggie from Just Between You and Me?

PLEASE TELL!!!!!!!!!!

It’s still spring? Err, not here. (Here would be Florida.) We’re in the 80’s all this week. At least it’s not the 90’s…yet. :/ Well, if it is spring, then maybe it would be nice to have a spring-y colored house…and get paid for it! (kinda)
And that doggy is really cute, but mine climbs trees. Beat that. 🙂

I must say that I doubled over laughing when I listened to the weird al song. 🙂 Loved it!

Thanks for sharing that recipe blog. I think I’m in love. I made her coffee cake yesterday and it was wonderful.
