Friday Fave: Our Father…

I get so superstitious this time of year. It’s MARCH MADNESS!!

I’m on America’s side as Kansas plays Richmond in the Sweet Sixteen tonight, and these are the words that will help me get through the day:

Our Father, who art in Lawrence,
Hallowed be thy Game.

Thy Tourney come,
Thy Championship will be done,
In San Antonio as it is in Allen Fieldhouse.

Give us this day,
Our deserved victory,
And forgive us our turnovers,
As we forgave Roy,
Who double-crossed against us.

Lead us not into defeat,
But deliver us from the East coast bias.

For Kansas is the Basketball Kingdom, the Tradition, the Glory,
Forever and ever,

Friday Fave: @someecards

While they aren’t the most politically or socially correct, @someecards tweets are usually good for a chuckle – sometimes they even warrant a repost to the ol’ FB or a spam email to friends!

Please note, the views of someecards are not necessarily my views, but I do think a lot of their cards are funny and wonder where the heck they come up with it.

Here are some of my favorite tweets this week:

January 31
How to trade in your VCR for a million dollars.

February 1
Church sign really sick of winter.

February 2
This February I’m only listening to music made by Michael Jackson when he was still black. #BlackHistoryMonth

February 3
Headline typo about girls college may accidentally result in millions of male applicants.

February 4
PC accidentally recommends Mac.

What are some of your favorite someecards?

Friday Fave: The Best Photos from 2010

A photo speaks a thousand words and each year, TIME magazine features the best images to recount the year’s most important news stories. It’s incredible how some photographers capture the smallest (or biggest) moments with such artistry and drama. Check ’em out:

Thi2’s Best Takes in 2010
While I realize my year in photos may not be as heart-wrenching, worldly or inspiring as TIME’s, but these Poladroid pictures below reflect one of the most extraordinary years of my life to date.

What are some of your most memorable moments of 2010? Please leave a comment (and a link if possible!) describing your fave moment or photo of the year.

Here’s to a terrific 2011! May it be full of life, love and laughter – and tons of photos to capture it all.

Friday Fave: Go Elf Yourself!

Since it’s Christmas, why don’t you go Elf Yourself!

Here’s a look at some of the videos I created this week on my Friday Fave site of the week:

Friday Fave: Erin Pot Pie

Each Friday, I’ll share my favorite blog post of the week – whether it’s from a wedding, craft, gossip or friend’s blog.

Since I’m so new to this whole blog thing, I’m going to retroactively share some of my favorite posts. For the inaugural post of this series, I’m featuring my dear friend Erin’s blog, Erin Pot Pie. After all, this blog has helped inspire me to start writing one of my own.

Erin is one of the funniest, most unique and thoughtful people I know. She was my matron of honor and has been a rock for me in Chicago. Her blog is a true reflection of her – honest, creative, loving and hysterical. Hope you get a chance soon to sit down for a nice large helping of Erin Pot Pie. When you do, please leave a comment and let us know what your favorite serving is!


  • That Explains It – Workout Tapes (11.24.10)
    “I pulled out workout tapes this week…yes “VHS” tapes. In preparation for the Thanksgiving feast we are about to have with Brent’s family in Breckenridge, I decided to do one thirty minute workout, Buns of Steel 2000. I figure that should cover me for the holiday…”
    Note: Check out Erin’s Zumba workout – caught on video!


Starting off with a Big Bang

Well, it’s the first week of Thi2’s Takes, so we’re starting off with some lighthearted literary lovin’ – in the form of alliteration. Check back later today and throughout the week for posts featuring:

Thanks for visiting and hope one of these topics piques your interest to keep reading this week.
