happy father's day.

i was blessed with the most amazing father. i can't even express in words how much he means to me. i am very grateful everyday for all that he has done and does for me and my family, especially my mom. thanks dad, for being the best. i love you so very, very much! happy father's day, dad.

also, happy father's day to the other fathers in my life...my brother and brother-in-laws are pretty amazing dads and i'm sure that someday, their kids will feel about them the way i feel about my own dad. happy father's day, guys.

this video is pretty funny. you'd probably not find my dad doing this with us girls, but i vividly remember him letting us do his hair...barrettes and all. my brother-in-laws might do this though...hopefully.

again, happy father's day!



a couple of months ago, as i was blog stalking, i was checking out one of the "regular" blogs i read and the author had written about how she had been recording old episodes of friends on her dvr and that she watches them whenever she has nothing else to do or watch, or while she is doing other things.

well, seeing as how friends is my most favorite tv show ever, i stole her idea and i have been recording as many episodes of friends as i can find. jk. i just record what they show on tbs. luckily, when i started recording the episodes, they were at the very beginning of the series and so i have been able to enjoy my favorite show all over again. just a few days ago, i was blessed with my most favorite episode of friends...ever.

and this is my favorite scene from my favorite episode.

this episode contains so much goodness and quite a few one-liners. but by far, "...in prison" is my most favorite one-liner from friends. and, even to this day, i will occasionally throw it out there. granted, no one knows what i am talking about, but i do and that is all that matters.

once, though, right after this episode aired (way, way back in the nineties), i used the "...in prison" line and it was spot on. one of my finer moments, if i do say so myself. i would give the low-down on my usage, but it's more of a "you had to be there" story...so i will spare you.

anyway, that's all. just thought i'd share.

ps. here is the second greatest scene from friends. it starts at 3:19 and ends at 5:33. and the second greatest one-liner is at 5:03.


because you care.

so, remember how i said i hadn't abandoned my blog? well, i know it seems like i lied, but i have a really good excuse. i had another small camera mishap and it is currently being repaired to it's full glory. i'll try to post what i can without the pictures, but i can't promise too much without pictures. just thought you'd want to know.


i love the sight of: freshly mowed lawns and freshly planted flowers.

i love the sound of: sprinklers running in the early evening.

i love the smell of: mowed grass.

i love the taste of: basil vinaigrette. don't worry, i'm planning on sharing the recipe. it's to die for.

i love the feel of: summer just around the corner.
