Question of the Day

How’s life? Tell me something awesome that happened this weekend! 



  1. My parents arrived yesterday for the holidays which I am excited about. I’m also excited about starting PT today and strengthening my imbalances from injury this year. Then of course I will treat myself by baking a ton of Paleo cookies. I tested some almond cinnamon ones this weekend. They were fabulous! Off to check out the Lulu finds you mentioned!

  2. Those maps are a riot “I am a dog”, “Lobsters”, “No One Knows”…ha too funny!!!!
    This weekend i had 3 successful pinterest inspired projects, normally i am the queen of pinterest fails so that was pretty exciting!

  3. I’m on school break till Jan. My husband and I are known for getting hooked on a series then we binge and just watch watch watch! Well our new series is Walking Dead. I’ve literally been dreaming about “the dead” for 3 days. Nap times and after the kiddos go to bed we watch! Ahhhh SOO good! Such a winter tradition for us.

  4. I saw the maps last week and they were hilarious! In fairness, I likely couldn’t label most of Europe correctly so I can’t fault them!

    Best part of my weekend was having my sister get to town for the holidays! Excited to see her again!

  5. I’m dying over the Cat FAQ, thanks for sharing!

    I’ve seen the maps before too, but I still think it is funny every time. I always find it so interesting what places interest others about America. In Germany I saw a map that only labeled New York, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa and Albuquerque?

  6. The videos of people getting puppies for Christmas are too cute!! Thanks for sharing! The map is so funny also, when I studied abroad I gave up on telling people I was from St. Louis and just told them I was from Chicago, because that was the nearest city most recognized.

  7. My Aunt made those bacon appetizers for Thanksgiving and they are to.die.for! OMG so delicious, you’ll love them! Be sure to make a ton haha Merry Christmas to you and your family!
