Finally Friday

Thank Goodness It's Friday, y'all! The weekend is here!

Fun Phone Photo Friday

Although I'm not a huge fan of change, sometimes it's just fun to switch things up a bit! I have been busy working on some new ideas and a few surprises, so stay tuned. But for now, I thought I'd take a break from the usual Flashback Friday post and try something new---Fun Phone Photo Friday! With cameras now practically standard on most cell phones, snapping a picture or two to share each week should be a piece of cake, and fun to boot!

Look what we picked up at the grocery store!
They were running a special...
By one balloon, get an adorable toddler for free!

{Even if you're not a Florida Gator fan, you've got to admit that sweet bean's pillow case dress is mighty adorable! My friend, Jennifer over at Southern Living Preppy Style Designs, makes them along with a dozen other darling items! She'll even custom make a pillowcase dress for your lil' in any team fabric or colors, just ask! }

I'm tossing around the idea of creating a weekly Linky with the Fun Phone Photo Friday theme. Any thoughts?

Five Question Friday

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?

Oooh, fun question! All accents are pretty nifty, but if I could chose to have one accent in particular, I'd choose to have an Australian accent. I'm pretty sure I've been enamored with the Australian accent since I first heard Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee all those years ago. And now with famous Aussie actors like Hugh Jackman, Simon Baker, and Nicole Kidman prettying up the screen, it's difficult not to be envious of their Down Under drawl!


2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)

Yes! When I'm tired, nothing stands in my way of a little shut eye! I could sleep on the sidewalk during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade if I'm tired enough.

And with a squeaky clean conscience, I always sleep like a baby! (Wink, Wink)

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?

Ummm, this question is bordering on the brink of TMI. But since my personality won't actually permit me to skip a question, I'll just say, when a girl's gotta go, a girl's gotta go!


4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?

I honestly can't think of one person I'd actually want to be stuck with for 24 hours, let alone in a claustrophobic death box dangling several stories above the ground!  But, if made to choose, I'd say I'd want to be stuck with Martha Stewart. I'm thinking she could whittle us up a three course meal from the gum and cheese crackers in her purse, or whip up a nice cozy pillow from the pocket lint in my trousers. And with the skills I'm almost certain she picked up while in the clink, I'm thinking she might even know a thing or two about escaping from uncomfortable situations!


5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?

For our first date, Bret took me to Harry's, a seafood restaurant, in Gainesville during our junior year of college.


Enjoy your weekend and Go Gators!

that's so funny you posted cell phone pics. that is what i was gonna do of some pics from my phone from yesterday. i would have totally linked up!

New Mommy!!! said...

Yeah, I'm the first to leave a post, but someeone might beat me to it how much I type. Ok, forst off love the pics, the linky is a great idea, except I just downgraded and my "cheap phone" broke, so hubs gave me an even cheaper phone that he had from his office, and it doesnt even have a camera phone. I know it's liek I'm stuck in teh stone age, Yabba Dabba Doooo, ha!

Love Q&A. Love Australian Accents. And Love Crocodile Dundee, and my dad looks just like him I think, well my bff says he does anyway. I think he also looks like Harrison Ford, Robert Redford, and reminds me a little of Paul Newmann, but that could be stretchign it. Anyway, what is TMI?? And I Love your anecdote about being stuckign in a death trap, ha! Hilarious, couldn;t have said it better myself. I love it how you say you can;t imagine beign stuck with anyone and then choose Martha Stewart!! Although when I think about it, you are prob right, she's probably like a McGyver, and if not, you certainly would not get bored bc I bet that girl can go on and on.
Sweet date sight. That's so cute you guys have known each other that long. Girl you are up early blogging!
Have a Great Weekend!;)

New follower from Five Question Friday! Your little girl is adorable and I love her name, so pretty! And although I think the Gators dress is cute, my husband is a die-hard FSU fan! (Just don't tell him I said that!) Great answers, love the one about Martha Stewart, her crafty ideas would come in handy!

What a sweet girl! Very cute!

Susan said...

Okay, here's the thing....I want to know exactly what store is running a special on said adorable toddlers because I'm gonna go clean them out, but they have to be the exact same one.
Now about the public toilees....Avoid them at all costs!

mama k said...

Love the dress...even if it is Gators :)

Jennifer said...

So, did the GG's fly off the shelf at the grocery store?? I definately would pick one up while shopping. She is too cute. I think the phone photo linky party would be great. Seems like that is all we use our phones for these days..LOL! And as far as public restrooms...we share the same thoughts. Have a great weekend.

Sweet Southern Prep said...

Yes, even though I'm not a Gator fan, she's too cute for words! Love the dress that Jennifer made! :)

Kristin @ Ellie-Town said...

I have no idea how to get a picture off my phone! But for everyone but me, sounds like a fun idea.

Liz said...
