Monday Funday?

So, I let you all down on Friday by not blogging a wrapup. But I had a very good reason! I was busy doing other things and the first time I had a chance it was, like, 4pm and I was like "Nobody is reading this blog on Friday at 4." So I went home and ordered pizza and watched DVR with CB instead and you guys were like "She's a terrible blogger."

I'm sorry!

Well, I'm making it up to you now - better late than never, right? So let's get to it!


In a shocking move seen coming by no one, I didn't mention my birthday here on the blog at all, which was very strange and unlike me and I even surprised myself. But, lucky for me (and, let's get real, him), CB still understood that birthdays are A BIG DEAL, PEOPLE and bought everything in the pink aisle of Party City.

I'm a terrible photographer who knows nothing about lighting.
But I was so excited that there was no time to turn on lights!
There was a birthday banner! And pink flower puffs!
And pink lantern streamers! 

And then I walked into the bedroom and was like "It'll be like
sleeping on clouds!"
And CB was like "Or it'll be terrifying when we pop them in our


Even Oliver got in on the celebration!
CB is simply the best there is. Sorry, rest of the world.


This week's Book of the Week is a throwback to 2010. Some of you may have read "World War Z" or seen the movie earlier this year...but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought I'd throw in some zombies (obviously).

But seriously - zombies aren't really my thing and also, they're not even that scary because they're un-dead and can't move that fast! If you can't out-run a zombie, worry less about the Zombie Apocalypse and more about your overall physical fitness.

I'm just saying.

Anyway, click here to check out the short and sweet review - and take special note of the Tori Spelling reference. My family just can't help themselves.


So, a friend of mine is trying to spread the word about her Kickstarter campaign to fund an awesome mobile app called CurrantNOW. It is designed to help people, utility companies, and government municipalities communicate efficiently during times of disaster and crisis, like what was experienced during Super Storm Sandy.

My friend Denise is the founder of Currant Inc., a socially minded tech start-up and the goal of the campaign is to raise $15,000 in 30 days so people everywhere can document the stunning events they witness during natural disasters and other emergencies.

If you're interested in learning more or helping the campaign, please click here for more information. And thanks!


And now, the Video of the Week.

This song was playing as I walked through the door on Friday afternoon because, as previously mentioned, CB is the best there is. Also, you can't not start your weekend off right (or your week, for that matter!) when it is playing! So........enjoy! And Happy Monday-slash-Thanksgiving Week everyone!


  1. Glad you're back. I just sent John the link to this post and asked him why in the 4 years we've been together, he never thought to decorate for MY birthday...and I LOVE pink, too!!! Hopefully he gets the hint and doesn't forget by the time the calendar gets around to being March :) CB is really the best ever.

    1. Hahaha apologies from CB to John in advance as I think I've accidentally made every man who reads this blog (either directly or via their significant other) be like "Seriously??? Great, now I have to step it up...."

      You're welcome.
