Half Full Friday and Blog of the Week

Eyegirl is on hiatus for the month of August but I've decided to continue with Half Full Friday in her absence.
~I'm happy because...

I got another McDonald's Wild Berry Fruit Smoothie yesterday!  Love 'em!

My boys got tons of goodies from Draco's Paw It Forward!

My mom gave me some of her yummy homemade fruit salad to take home!

I'm having a garage sale with some friends tomorrow!  Hopefully I'll make a little extra money.

A different friend invited me over for chicken tacos and to watch 'When In Rome' last night!

My bug bite seems to finally stopped itching every 2 minutes!  Now it only itches every 10, lol!

My chin zit is finally healing up!

I found this week's Blog of the Week awhile ago and have been enjoying it ever since.  I believe I read about it in the comment section of someone else's blog.  The name itself was enough to intrigue me so I just knew I had to take a look.

You don't have to be a parent to enjoy this website.  The subject matter is pretty self-explanatory and if you haven't checked it out yet, you're in for a real treat!  The site describes itself as, "The strongest visual birth control on the market today," and honestly, it's probably not too far off the mark.

It features pictures people have submitted of things their children have destroyed and most include a short explanation.  There's a spot on the site to submit your own photos too if you decide to.  It's meant to be all in fun and they specifically state in the sidebar that people who are mean, judgmental or there to offer a parenting critique are not welcome. 

The website originator is Julie Haas Brophy.  She created it after her son spilled a quart of black paint on the dining room rug. 

I've included a few of my favorite pictures for your viewing pleasure.
You might also enjoy the equally funny Shit My Pets Ruined.

I hope to never need to post on this site!!!!

I LOVE those Berry Smoothies from Mc'Ds!! Yummm!!

And I so wish I was already done with school- only a few more months though. The last year of law school, in my opinion, is pretty useless. Especially if you've been out working, which I have been...

And YOU WILL find a job. The economy is awful. A lot of my friends who have lost their job have had to take random jobs (one's even working at a grocery store) just so they can be working. And a good friend of mine has been unemployed for over a year and she's fabulous and super qualified to do just about anything.... I can't imagine how frustrated you must be but don't ever stop believing that you're amazing. Because you are. And you will find the right opportunity... and in the meantime, we'll be here (at least viz blogs) to keep cheering you on :)

Happy weekend my friend!!

Thanks so much for stopping by so often and showing your concern for Shelby. We are really concerned about how the pups are since she has taken so much medication.

Guess we'll know in a few weeks.

Doris Sturm said...

I had one of those wild berry smoothies before and I really enjoyed it too...

I'm glad you're keeping positive. I hope you did well at your Yard Sale. I was hoping you made some significant cash towards the cause (school, house)....

Stay well and keep your humor!
Doris and Gizzy :-)
