Friday Randomness : Magic + Milkshakes


Last night we walked the dog and JD pulled the hoodie over my head, pulling the strings extra tout. It makes me feel warm, it makes him feel he’s taking care of me. It’s funny what strings can do. We walked in the moonlight around midnight, the streets quiet with the exception of the sound of Polo’s paws prancing on pavement. I made fun of JD, pushing buttons a wife only knows, and he poked back. Next thing we knew, I taunted him from running four feet ahead of him, daring him to catch me four blocks later. He sprinted, I shrieked, and Polo ran between us in the light of the moon.

Life is simple, life is beautiful. And I don’t want to forget the small things that make me happy.

Here are a few things that make smile this past week and I hope they do the same thing for you…

Who doesn’t love a little Hipster Lincoln?

Beatbox, Level Harvard…….no, really, watch this. Now.


The countdown has begun…

I hate when it happens…

Happy Friday!

    I think that first piece about making your own magic is by Kal Barteski (she’s one of the founders of Link with Love and was at Alt) and I’m sure she would love a little shout out for that piece. Love the randomness!

    LOL those are some great ones, especially the last one! For the longest time I had the Milkshake song as my mom’s ringtone after one devastating time when the lid popped off when she was making herself a milkshake. I don’t think the kitchen ever truly recovered. 😉 See you at the LA Fix!

    I’ve been WAITING for my hoverboard! COM’MON! But what I’d REALLY love is a little machine that you put a small piece of food in and OUT POPS A PIPING HOT PIZZA! Yes, I am yelling. Back to the Future is one of my favorite movies. All of them. I get carried away.

    I made an iron-on decaled onesie for my sister’s baby that says, "I hate when I make milkshakes and all the boys show up in my yard." Tacky? Of course . . . but it WILL make you laugh! 🙂
