Is it just me, or does Friday coffee actually taste better?
Are you obsessed with Fixer Upper?
I’m obsessed to the point of re-watching episodes multiple times just in case I pick up something new. Do you think Chip & Jo would consider adopting me? Fixer Upper reminds me a bit of my pre-teen obsession with Trading Spaces. Though my apartment is nowhere near as cute as anything Joanna Gaines has ever encountered, I try. These photos make me want to book my flight to Waco so I can be momentarily closer to the perfect Gaines family farm.
What’s your favorite Pixar short?
Sometimes I see Pixar movies in the theater. Sometimes I like the animated “shorts” better than the film itself. Apparently the short shown before Inside Out sparked a lot of differing opinions, but I loved it. Oh, and, sometimes I cry in the theater before the real movie even begins.
What did you play with while growing up?
Kudos to Target for realizing that this answer has nothing to do with gender. We struggle to understand that encouraging girls to play “like ladies” and choose pink and frilly toys over scientific or construction-based options leads to sad truths like the fact that there are far fewer females than males in STEM industries (Women in STEM). Boys can love Barbies, girls can love GI Joes, and we can all learn to love one another for who we are and not how well we conform to what society expects of us. Getting rid of gender-based toy signs is a very small step in the right direction of greater acceptance.
When is the last time you watched Bambi?
It’s definitely been a while, but this real-life footage of Bambi and Thumper just makes my day.
Have an amazing weekend! Don’t forget to share the news about #ClearTheShelters day tomorrow!
