My Awesomely Random Life (and Everything in Between)

Friday Fav’s

“It’s Friday, Friday! Gotta get down on Friday!”

And you know what that means my friends…

Yuppers.

It is time for another rounding addition of my Friday Fav’s (and boy do I have some goodies this week for ya, a lot of newsy stuff actually).  But before I delve into my favorite webby finds, I want to ask a huge favor from you guys. A very good friend of mine is going through a very rough time right now. On top of having lost her father to cancer just a few months ago, she recently found out that she has leukemia and will have to start treatments next week. My friend is one of the toughest people I know, but even as strong as she is, I know how scary and difficult dealing with something like this can be. I believe so very much in the power of prayer. In fact, it was my faith and my daily (and sometimes hourly) talks with God that got me through some of the most trying times in my life. It would mean so much to me, as well as my friend, if maybe you could have a littler shout out to my friend in your chats with God. He may not always has the most obvious ways of showing it, but he is always listening. Always.

Now…on to the fun stuff 🙂

Favorite Weird News of the Week: Jet Blue Pilot goes cray, cray. Good timing that the plane was full of passengers all making their way to a Security Guard Convention in Vegas.

Favorite Good New of the Week: Ron Burgundy is back, baby!

Favorite Food News of the Week: Popcorn in GOOD for you. According to the University of Scranton (shout out to all my Office homies!) in Pennsylvania, everybody’s favorite movie-time munchie actually has more antioxidant substances called polyphenols than fruits and vegetables. So does that mean that some popcorn a day keeps the doctor away?

Favorite Pop-it-to-Me: Birthday Cake batter Popcorn. Snap, Crackle, POPcorn heaven! And since popcorn is apparently now uber healthy for ya, feel free to go the way of the extra-large bucket and dig. in.

  1. I will definitely keep your friend in my thoughts and prayers.

    As for all of these favorites…I don’t even know where to start! Other than that I really want picnic pants and a bookshelf necklace. I’ll let you decide which one of those is actually true. 🙂

    And Italy is definitely on my must-visit list!

    • Awww thanks so much, hun! I really appreciate that 🙂

      As for the picnic pants…how amazing are they?! Why wear a skirt, which basically does the same thing, when you could look like that wearing a pair of those babies haha! And the necklace is totally adorbs! My number one thing to do on my bucket list to one day go to Italy as well. When, or how, that happens, I don’t know but you betta believe your socks that I am GOING to make it happen lol. Hope you had a great weekend girl! 🙂
