High Five for Friday!

Seriously, what is wrong with this country this week? We need to get it together, people! Does anyone know of any happy news going on right now? Because I would love love love to hear it! Please leave it in the comments so I know there is still hope in the world. I do have to say that does try hard. I don’t know about you but one of my favorite things is to find, usually towards the bottom of the page, the CNN Distraction video of the day or week. ‘It’s not news’ is how it is advertised and it isn’t but for a split second you usually can see something happy which is a rarity on the CNN homepage. Today you see the happiest elephant in the world. And that makes me feel better. It also makes me want to be an elephant. Which obviously leads us into the rest of high five for Friday.


Speaking of elephants – did you know there are only a few animals on this planet that can keep a beat? Sea lions are one of them!!


What could be sillier than sport balls replaced with cats? This one is for you, Ali!!!


Absolutely brilliant minimalist advertisements.


Pretty interesting – 2 people describe the same person to a forensic artist and the results are so so so….




This was me yesterday. My neighbor even offered to help. I pretty much said these words exactly.


Synchronized Skiiers???


This is good news!! The NFL schedule was officially released. I like this version the best!


I have a few friends I would like to purchase this for.


Has anyone heard of this? It is so awesome! One of my brides is using it. They are foregoing a traditional videographer and instead this company is sending them 5 camcorders that they are going to pass around to friends. I actually think that the results are going to be tremendously cool.


You have only until 5pm tonight to enter into Tabibi Designs April Giveaway!!!  Don’t forget!! It is so awesome!!


As if the National Anthem didn’t already make me cry literally every time I hear it… Happy Weekend Folks!!

    Angela Snyder - I know this doesn’t effect many people but my best friend made a huge mistake at work and thought for sure she was going to get fired and when she went to her boss today, she let her keep her job 🙂 Also, it was supposed to rain tomorrow for one of my weddings and now it isn’t!!! Yay! And again, thanks for a great Friday post..I love the sea lion!
