5 Awesome Things

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

The weather is gloomy over here so while I am running around trying to avoid seasonal depression (aren't we all?) I thought I would share some of my favorite little things floating around the internet.

#1. The blog Stories of a Mean Mom is probably the internet's best kept secret. My friend Courtney documents being the mom to 3 year old Peyton and 1 year old Loralie (or Juju). Peyton has become a serious celebrity in our house and I am very tempted to drive the 3 hours to meet her and give her high fives and chocolate. This how her mom found her after she took a nap:

She's the coolest. I'm telling you- go check out this blog. You will not regret it.

#2. This video of a man who gets his dying wish of attending an Indianapolis Colts game. I had to grab a tissue.

#3. This is for my Utah (and eastern Idaho) Mormons. A list of RIDICULOUS Utah names! C'mon- we can all laugh at ourselves.

#4. A series a photos between a dad and his daughter. I thought these were so funny and sweet.

#5. This girl, who I wish was related to me

Looking at these, I am realizing that I am just really delighted by 3 year old girls. Good thing I'll have one in 2 years! Hope you have a Happy Tuesday!


  1. 1. I love those daddy-daughter pics.

    2. Stories of a Mean Mom is my new favorite thing on the internet. Let's be friends with her.

  2. I just noticed Peyton's chest tattoo in that picture. She currently has about 6 tattoos on her body, thanks to her grandma who sent her a package of over 100 for her birthday. Carrie, if you want to be cool like her, you need a pony tattoo. Seriously.

    And those Utah names kill me. Love it.


I like to hear all of the beautiful things you have to say.
