Five on Friday: Laughter is the Best Medicine

Welcome Friday!  It's been an interesting week to say the least.  Rather than dwell on everything that went wrong, you just gotta laugh through it.  So let's have a little chuckle or two...or five together today!


What sort of idiot backs into a parked car?  Me!  Even worse, my stepbrother who was talking to me right after the accident said he thought it was time I got a car with a rear view camera.  Too bad my car already has one! HA! 


I ordered a sweatshirt on Instagram during a flash sale (final sale, no returns since it's personalized) and requested for the thread color of the monogram be plum if available or turquoise as shown on the sample. 

I received the sweatshirt yesterday and it wasn't plum....or turquoise...

I'd be able to handle just about any, red, black, gray, green, even orange, but instead I got my all-time least favorite color in the entire world...PINK!   Maybe I'll learn to embrace the pink.  Or maybe someone with the exact same size...and exact same monogram wants to buy this from me?


Guess what I was up early emailing my pediatrician yesterday morning?  Pictures of Jack's poop.  That's a fun email to read with your coffee.  I'll spare you a picture on this one. 


I saw a full-on duck fight on my way to work on Tuesday.  I honked, drove up very close to them, even got out of the car.  Nothing was standing in their way.  It went from the grass to the street and one of the little guys was so bloody!  There was even an audience of other ducks standing around watching.  Maybe it was a duck Ultimate Fighter Competition. 


This week we reached a milestone of sorts in that Jack started crying and noticing when I leave for work in the morning.  It makes me feel good and very sad all at the same time.  I'm happy he wants me around and misses me.  But, as I'm sure all working moms feel from time to time, it makes you feel sad and very guilty for leaving your little one each morning.  One day this week I was sitting at my desk, staring at all of the pictures of the little guy I'm surrounded by and cried.  I questioned what I was doing.  Was he sad that I'm not with him?  Am I going to miss major milestones in his life while away at work?  God must have heard me, because within the hour, our nanny texted me this picture.

Yup, he was torn up that I wasn't there. 

Have a great weekend!  We have a busy one ahead of us.  Jason's company holiday party is tonight...yes holiday party!  Since he works in the hospitality industry and December is super crazy for them, they push back their celebrations until now.  Merry Christmas! I'm also getting a much needed hair color (I've been finding way too many grays lately) and we will be watching the Superbowl with some new friends. 


  1. I'm so sorry your week was bad, but your post was really funny! So who wins? You do. Go you.

  2. Happy weekend! Visiting from the linkup. Your little guy is so cute :)

  3. Stopping by from the linkup. You have a great way of finding the humor in not so fun times. Loved reading along :)

  4. I've backed into a parked car, too. I feel your pain! And I think that sweatshirt is SO cute so I hope you're able to embrace the pink! The seller isn't willing to work with you though since your request is in writing?
