best photo bomb ever
Does anyone else need to laugh? I've had one of those weeks that leave me thankful for friends and downright desperate for laughter. During difficult days I'm grateful for those rare people in life who consistently make this planet far more fun and hilarious. Michelle, the photo bomber is one of those treasures. Her resume of ridiculousness is impressive. She's one of the girls who randomly decided to join the Fourth of July parade we were watching this summer. She up and joined a parade, ya'll. One moment a spectator. The next, a card-carrying, pageant waving, parade participant. Even though Michelle is more than a decade younger than I am, when she sends me a text she oftentimes refers to me as "Dumb-butt." This is love. She is the best kind of wonky. Without people like Michelle, this world would be sad and as bland as gluten-free, organic cereal.
I propose a toast to all the Michelles in our lives. Got a Michelle? Tell me a funny story. Let's laugh our way into the weekend.
P.S. Today my oldest baby turned 13. I'm not writing a post about him today because I would cry, and I try not to cry on Fridays. Besides, we can't have his party for a few weeks, so we're kind of in denial that we're now the parents of a teenager. Pass the wine. The whole bottle.
How about some weekend links?
This is exactly why I am too afraid to learn to knit or crochet.
Don't forget! I'm excited to get together with some friends and watch this on Monday. Are you watching?
This is scary. I keep trying to remind myself that my kids are watching and one day (way too soon) they will be driving.
This is creative and beautiful.
Yes. Have you felt this way lately?
Nursing moms, isn't this fantastic?
I love this idea for boys.
This is something to follow along with this week. Mercy Project is rescuing their first group of child slaves. Don't miss it.
Can I introduce you to the other lovely ladies in the photo? The red dress is Juliette. She is the reason why the Fair Trade Fair is a reality. The white shirt holding the cute baby is Becca. She teaches Hudson's class at school. The serial killer in the back - Meesh. My heart swells with love for the people in this picture.
I hope your weekend is lovely and filled with just the right amount of wonky and wonderful. If you get down, simply take a gander at Michelle's freak of a photo bomb. When I needed a laugh this week, it was my go-to, instant source of happiness.
