Friday Things

Such wonderful news to hear of Lauren Fleshman's announcement.  Oh, and yes, the Duchess of Cambridge, as well as Jessica Simpson!  BABIES!!  So exciting for all.  I'm a sucker for new baby pictures; especially new babies that aren't mine.  Huzzah!  Also, how awesome is this:

Totally one of those 'why didn't I think of that' things... 

Other fun random thing from the internet, Jay Z introducing himself to a lady on the subway:

I know, I know, more video; but, just in case you missed it:

I'm not a huge Mariah fan, but I love this song - it makes me think of Love Actually, which I'm getting a bit antsy for, since we only watch once a year on Christmas Eve after the kids go to bed (we watch Charlie Brown and The Grinch before bedtime).  Movies are such a huge part of the holidays for us; we watch all the usual suspects, but also on tap in the next few weeks: The Ref.  It's a yearly tradition.  I also like to catch While You Were Sleeping because it reminds me of home or Gremlins because I am nostalgic for my 80s youth.  Any other non-traditional flicks I should put in our queue? 

OK, enough about movies - here's my music for the week.  Happy weekend!

  1. Love Actually is definitely one of my favorites. We are watching "Elf" tonight. The kids love it!

    1. ahhh, yes - definitely on our annual list :) waiting for my kids to get to an age where they'll appreciate some of the humor in Elf!

  2. I love Love Actually. Have you seen Home for the Holidays? It's with Holly Hunter and Robert Downey Jr. from mid-late 90s? My favorite holiday movie!

    1. oooh, yes! I probably haven't seen that since the late 90s - I vividly recally Holly Hunter being stuck wearing a horrible puffy coat... will have to revisit :)

  3. Love Actually is one of my faves anytime of year! I've watched it about six times already, I'm not ashamed. :) I've also been watching The Holiday with Kate Winslet and Jude Law, that one always makes me smile. Also, can't have the holidays without watching Meet Me in St. Louis. Judy Garland in that red velvet dress...gorgeous!

    1. ooooh, haven't watched Meet Me in St. Louis in a LONG time! good call.

  4. Yes, I second Home for the Holidays. Its a yearly tradition for myself. Classic. I also indulge in Muppet Christmas Carol, and I will admit with or without kids. We just watched Polar Express this year with the kids, first for all of us. Wonderful movie. Both girls were enthralled with it, which was cute to see. Love Actually is awesome. I have to get going on these Holiday movies.

    By the way your Turkey Burger recipe sounds awesome. Just need to convert the vegggie husband. No big deal.:)

    1. Oh yes, Sean's tradition growing up was the Muppets and we watch that every year - kids or no kids :) We started watching the Polar Express last year and it's perfect - lots of action to keep them enthralled!
