Friday Wrapup

Let's get to it!

The other day, I sent CB an email with the subject line: BREAKING NEWS. And then I wrote this:

Um, the breaking news is three or four-fold: 

1. There is a Beyonce pumpkin. Have we come up with our idea for this year? OMG. 
2. While googling said Beyonce pumpkin images, I came across a cute cat pumpkin. Perhaps that's our idea for the year? (see attached)
3. I read an article and didn't know most of who anyone was, nor could I identify them in the photo. I felt old and didn't even care. The people were: Iggy Azalea, Wiz Khalifa, and Calum Hood. I mean, I know who two of the three of those people are, but couldn't pick them out of a lineup or know if they were sitting in the cubicle next to me. Also, why does everyone have a made up name, now? Were there just too many John and Jane's in the world and not enough Iggy's and Wiz's? These are the things I think about when reading about pop culture these days. 
4. You married a one hundred year old. 

And then I included this picture as an attachment. 

His response?

We can make what ever kind of pumpkin you want... except Beyonce. 

His brievity and willingness to deal with me are just two of the many reasons why I married him. 


Ok, so speaking of Halloween, it's only one week away, you guys. And while typically animals dressed as humans is one of my lesser favorite things, this made me endlessly laugh. We all have a lot of time on our hands.


Finally, a review for "Gone Girl." OHMYGOD. Click here.


And now, the Video of the Week.

This makes me a mean wife, but this morning I was asking CB what the video should be this week, and while he made the "hmm, let me think about that" face, he never gave me a response. Then, 10 minutes later, we saw something about the new "Between Two Ferns" video (click here to watch) and he was like "Oh, you could make that the video of the week."

Me: "The video of the week is always music."
CB: "Right, but you put other videos on there all the time."
Me: "Yeah, but that's just because it's the Friday Wrapup. The Video of the Week has to be music."
CB: "It's your blog, you can make it anything you want."

Not helpful. So, the part of this that makes me a mean wife is that I'm picking a video for a song that drives CB crazy. That'll teach him not to come up with something better! (seriously, why am I mean?) Also, it's SO catchy. I hate myself. And now, so does CB.

Happy Friday!


  1. Tell the truth, is Shake It Off the VOW (video of the week...obviously) b/c there's a cat sweater within the first ten seconds?

    1. You know me too well. Also, my birthday is next month and I'm giving you guys gift ideas...

  2. I'm with ya, if you're 100 then so am I! I couldn't pick those people out of a lineup either. I have NEVER heard of this "Calum Hood" character until 1 minute ago. I adore your blog but I'm with CB on the Shake it Off nonsense! Every time it comes on the radio, the station is changed within a millisecond! ha! Have a great weekend and hope Sparty really gives Michigan the business!!! --Amanda
