Friday Wrapup

It's Friday! Let's get to it.


First of all, brace yourselves: I'll be traveling tomorrow through Monday evening, so there won't be a Monday post.

I KNOW! How will you survive?

But don't fret, I'm pretty sure that spending a weekend in New Orleans working will lead to some colorful stories for next week, so stay tuned! Although, most of the color will likely come from me sitting in my hotel room after 8 hours of work, wearing a bathrobe, and watching "Catfish." But that's something, right?

Obviously I'm stealing this idea. Get ready, CB.


There's no book blog this week because we're all slackers. So, you tell me - what are you reading? Something that should make its way to the blog sometime soon? Let me know!


I don't know why, but I can't stop watching this and laughing.

So, CB's last day of work is today after some restructuring at his company and them obviously not knowing what's good for 'em. And so last night there was a great send-off in his honor, which obviously included shots in the shape of his first initial. But of course.

Spoiler Alert! His real name isn't CB.

He has worked there for 8 years and has made some lifelong friends - and even got a soon-to-be wife out of the deal! Not too shabby.

But I'd be remiss not to mention it here because this place has been such a big part of both of our lives for such a long time, and really it's the people that make it what it is. The friends and co-workers who showed up last night - plus some family! - is a testament both to the caliber of people we're lucky enough to be surrounded by, but also who CB is and how much he's loved. It was really humbling to be a part of and made me happy for our future and what is in store for his next career move!

Stay tuned because it's gonna' be a fun ride!


So, without further ado - and though it's been a Video of the Week before - here you go, CB. We got this!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. Um, I cannot stop watching the little girl on ice. IT IS KILLING ME.

  2. Good luck in your new endeavors CB. And yes Becky, he got a fiance' out if the deal! :) The little girl on the ice is awesome. I expected to see her on say, an ice rink, and then died a little when I saw it was just a small patch in a driveway. but hey, ice is ice. So cute! Happy Friday, have an awesome weekend!
