Friday Randoms and a Funny

After what has been a long, emotional week for a lot of reasons, I thought today I'd just recap some random stuff and leave you with a funny.


1)  My son starts a kindergarten orientation camp this coming Monday.  I swear I thought we had an extra week between now and when he starts.  I am in denial that tomorrow is August.




2)  I think the second reason I'm upset that he starts on Monday is because that means I need to get in gear with my own school stuff.  I have to go into my building, start setting up, prepare lesson plans... and I have a feeling August will fly by as fast as July!




3)  I have spent entirely too much money lately on various things (some were necessities, though!), so I am putting myself on a spending strike.  Stay tuned.  This should be good.



4)  I have been really bad lately at keeping up with my blog reading.  I think the last time I checked I had over 200 new posts in Bloglovin' to read.  How does that happen so fast?  I. CAN'T. KEEP. UP. And I know I'll definitely get behind once school starts!




5)  I really have not been in the mood to cook lately, but I have to get back in the habit... fast.  Any good, easy recipes you can share?  I'm all ears!




* * * * *

And for your weekly dose of funny, check out this clip of Tom Cruise and Jimmy Fallon in a lip sync battle.  It's a bit long, so I recommend skipping ahead to the last song.  It gave me a good chuckle.

Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I know! I always have grandiose plans about my weekly cooking and then it never pans out how I envision it!

  2. I keep accumulating blogs to read and it's becoming unmanageable! There are a few must-reads (yours included!) but lately on some I've just been reading the title and marking as read if it doesn't really capture my attention. Too many to read!

    1. I've been trying to do that, too, but even so - I feel like there is not enough time in the day. Like you, I have a few "must reads"... but I keep finding more and more I love!
      I appreciate you reading mine, Mattie! I love yours, too.

  3. Happy Friday BB! Oh I love the lip synching on the last song. I can never hear that song without thinking of Top Gun and Goose and Maverick! I know how ou feel about reading all the blogs and I have only about 20 must-reads (def incl yours!).

    As for recipes... Check out the Momfessionals blog - Andrea had a recipe link up earlier this week. she's a friend of Shay, the Mix and Match Mama, Andrea shared crockpot meatball stroganoff on Wed and today she shared crockpot lasagna. I am hungry...

    Have a great weekend...

    2. Hey, Laurie!! Great to hear from you. I will definitely check that out on Momfessionals... I usually read Andrea's blog but am a bit backed up!
      Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  5. I feel the same way about spending too much money lately! I need to put that on hold for a while! Also, I LOVED the Tom Cruise lip sync battle! Makes me like him even more!
