•••Happy Leftovers Day!•••

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! I went for a run in the rain yesterday morning, then did the elliptical at my in-law’s place so I, as a friend put it, could pretend putting gravy on everything was ok. lol I know it’s a little cheesy, but while I was on the run I thought about some of the things I’m grateful for.

I’m thankful I have in-laws I enjoy spending time with, or else the holidays would suck!
I’m thankful I have at least as many client-turned-friends as other friends.
I’m very thankful my youngest brother got out of the airforce in time for the holidays, and is living in town.
I’m thankful I have health insurance, even if it’s not great!
I’m thankful I have a husband who sticks by me through the good and tough times.
And, I’m thankful I have two cute kitties that like to snuggle.

••• First of (hopefully) many “random fridays” •••

I’ve been wanting to start this segment for many many months now, but it seemed like Fridays just kept coming and coming, and I never had the time to do it.  SO, now that wedding season is coming to an end, and all of my client albums have been ordered in time for the holidays, I thought it was the perfect time to start!  Whenever I come across something funny or weird, or maybe even just something dumb, I’ll be doing a random post about it on random Fridays!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Spencer showed me this video a long time ago, but I thought of it earlier this week when I heard this song in one of my classes at the gym.  If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s pretty funny, and a great way to start off the weekend.  Fortunately, I don’t hear the song very often, but whenever I do I can only hear the misheard lyrics, and it makes me smile. :)

Without further adieu, here is Fall Out Boy…you can already tell it’s going to be funny, can’t you!?
