High Five for Friday!

Yay for independence!!! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July whether you are American and celebrated all day or you are from another country and it was just another day for you all. I had such an awesome day, aside from the hardest workout ever – 13 exercises for the 13 stripes on the flay and 50 times each for the stars. I wanted to die and today my body is not thanking me, I will be doing a massive amount of foam rolling before my wedding today right after I hit publish on this post. I got to hang out yesterday with some of my most favorite people – we went to Red Robin, biked downtown to see listen to some cool tunes – Lonestar did a free concert – and we waited out until the fireworks came before biking home. So much fun and so active! We bought bikes on the 3rd and I could not be more ecstatic to finally own a nice bike that I can ride anywhere!! Anyway – enough about me and my life – let’s get on to fun internet finds!

Is this really real? Per their facebook page, yes. Yes it is.

The state of Washington is outlawing what it calls “gender-based” language. The bill– which went into effect this week– has changed nearly 3,500 state code sections to include both “he” and “she.” Also, “freshman” has been changed to “first year student.” “Fisherman” has been altered to “fisher.” “Penmanship” is now simply called “handwriting.” Washington follows Illinois, Florida, and North Carolina in making this move, and about 9 other states are considering it.

For our 7am show: Would you like to see Maryland ban gender-based words like freshman, penmanship, and fisherman from all official documents?

I paid off my last student loan this week and am super proud of myself. My only goal was to do it before I turned 30 and here I am student loan free at 28! I wanted to share this program with everyone because it looks super intriguing and I wish I had learned about it sooner.

So sad that this is so true for me.

Did everyone see what a normal barbie would look like?
__________
I am obsessed with the look of some of these swimsuits.

Stink at writing a bio in under 140 characters? Don’t worry, the twitter bio generator will do it for you!

Haaaaaa.

This song is no longer cool at my weddings. The last few if this song is played, the dance floor thins out tremendously. But I still thought this lamb was funny.

Poor Waldo..

We should really be way more worried about how many banned foods we eat.

Haven’t posted anything about cats recently: evidence they are from another planet.

    Brian - Both of the major political parties in Maryland are currently chaired by women, but legally, they have to refer to themselves as “chairman”. It’s pretty silly. Changing the terms would be respectful, even if nothing else.

    Lauren C - Dillon and I were just talking yesterday about how long it’s been since either of us have ridden a bike.
    Love your 4th of July shirt!
    I hope MD doesn’t become as dumb as Washington and those other states. People need to stop getting their panties in a bunch over stupid things.
    And that just made me feel really bad for Waldo 🙁

    Brea - I always love High Five for Friday! I want every single one of those swimsuits. Target used to have a few vintage-y polka dot one pieces and I snatched up a few before they sold out. Super cute.

    Reading about what foods are banned in other countries always bums me out. “Americans eat with their eyes” wtf so what? Just get rid of the coloring and we will GET USED TO IT.

    teri pozniak // tPoz - I’m so glad that the state of Washington has nothing else to worry about, other than gender-specific words. I mean f’real, wasting tax payers dollars right there….

    ahaha!! I easily could have written that “out at 10pm” post….those Express stretchy pants!! I believe the frat boys called them our Eff Me pants 😉 Going out at 10pm!? Just call me Grammie T….
    And I don’t know if you scrolled all the way down, but one of those products to buy – is 1500 ladybugs!! I wonder if they sell fireflies for Ashley!? lol.
