Mentionables

Hey there, friends! Hope each of you are having a lovely Thursday. Not much going on around my neck of the woods today. So much so that I really don't even have a great blog post planned. I thought about editing more travel photos, but I just don't wanna. Then I thought about sharing my cauliflower pizza crust recipe that I nailed first time 'round the other night, but the photos I took are total crap. So, that's out (but I'll share it soon, promise!). Then I thought maybe I should write something profound and thought-provoking today. Then I remembered I rarely have anything profound and thought-provoking to say. So, today you get more of the weird and interesting stuff I've found on the internets over the last few weeks. I bookmark these things to share when I've got nothing to share from my own brain. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. OH! And make sure you come back tomorrow and link-up to the Fresh Face Friday Blog Hop! Purty, please? See you then!


^^This is my life.^^


I am utterly shocked and dismayed that my Glamour Shots didn't make this list. SHOCKED. I mean, I'm rockin' the feather boa, the studded jacket, the hat, AND some bouffant hair. The Glamour Shot quadruple threat, if you will. Buzzfeed really missed the mark on this one. Also, this is the second time these photos have appeared on my blog. Consider yourselves some lucky individuals. Oh, and you're welcome Amanda Marshall.



Oh my gosh...you guys. If you've never watched videos of Maymo the dog before...you're in for an adorable treat. I found this too-cute-for-words pup on YouTube a long time ago, but have watched almost all of his videos at least 10 times over. He's kind of my go-to when I'm having a crappy day. Cheers me up instantly. I cannot get over how he just sits and stares and lets his owner do just about anything to him. And his new puppy friend? Cuteness overload. Maymo is pretty much the coolest dog in the entire world...next to my Tucker dog, of course. The video above is my favorite, but here and here are a few runners-up that I can't stop watching. Maymo, you've stollen my heart.

This mom is a friggin' genius...and also somehow has too much time on her hands.

Humans of New York. I've been scanning photos and reading these blurbs for a little while now. Some of them are sad, some funny, some are downright strange...but all of them are real, honest, and just so darn refreshing. It's a fascinating world full of fascinating people we live in. I just had no idea most of them lived in NYC.


Also...
Should I buy this?
I'm thinking yes.

Make sure you check out today's Google doodle. It's a winner.

    1. Aww shucks...thanks, dahling. It was my one single goal as a 9 year old to look as much like a 50 year old as possible. I think I succeeded. :)

  15. Maymo in the costume at the end totally made my morning! Well, along with the glamour shots of course :)
    And I think the Debussy google doodle was my favorite ever. It was so lovely and romantic. I showed it to my husband but he wasn't nearly as impressed as me.
