Hodgepodge Day

1. When was the last time you 'did a 180' on something?

I know this is about something you changed your mind on, but I'm the girl who falls down over a crumb on the floor, so I immediately thought of all the times I did a spin & fall... so that was probably yesterday... & probably will be today...

so this guy didn't even make it 180 degrees

2.  It's Independence week in the US of A! What's your favorite thing about America right this very minute? Favorites only! Let's hear what you love about America!

My favorite thing this very minute?  Knowing we're off work on Friday!  God bless America!!!


3. Stars or stripes? Red, white, or blue? Watermelon, homemade vanilla ice cream, or blueberry pie?

I'm more of a stripes girl... though gotta be careful with horizontal stripes. #biggirlproblems

I'm more of a red girl ... though Ricky tells me that red doesn't look good on redheads.  I scoff at that.

... & if I HAD to pick from those 3 food choices,  I'd go with watermelon.  So good for you.  I've never had blueberry pie though.  I do love pie so I'd be interested in trying that. 

I'm going on my own & going REAL American & saying APPLE PIE for the win! YES!
Is this amazing or what?!?!?

4. When did you last see stars, figuratively speaking?

When Ricky's chin up bar fell on my head almost literally knocking us both out in one big swoop...

5. 'Clear as a bell', 'with bells on', 'lots of bells and whistles', 'saved by the bell'...which phrase 'rings' truest for you lately? Have you ever seen The Liberty Bell?

Sorry... I'm now just singing the song to Saved by the Bell & having visions of Zack Morris & AC Slater in my head.  Bayside forever.

Still the best episode ever

6. Are you caught up in World Cup Fever? Have you watched a lot, a little or none at all?
Nope.  I don't hardly ever get caught up in any sport, except tennis.

Speaking of which, did you see Serena Williams zonk out on court?  Scary

I was anxiously awaiting to see if USA would win.  Just because I don't watch doesn't mean I don't care.... completely

7.  Bid farewell to June in ten words or less.

Can't help it... N'Sync took over my brain on this one

.... first Saved by the Bell... now N'sync ... I'm so living in the past...

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

It has been a heat wave around here lately... as summer tends to do... but tomorrow & Friday?  Its going to be perfection... I immediately want to make all my plans to do everything outdoors.  I want to sit outside & read - I want to do yard work - I want to go to the zoo - I want to do a run at the park ...

what I want to do this weekend...

watch... I'll end up sitting inside editing wedding pictures all weekend...

What I'll probably be doing instead


  1. Your posts always crack me up and I SO needed that this morning! You have no idea! I'm already dreading going to the park's supposed to hit a whopping 96 degrees! I'm dying just thinking about it! A chin-up bar to the head...hurts me to think about it! Of course, a bag of Vidalia onions to the cranium is no walk in the park, either. ;)

  2. The pie is gorgeous!! I'm singing N'Sync now too : ) Enjoy your July 4th weekend! I hope at least some of it is spent outdoors!

  3. That pie ... almost too gorgeous to cut into! Wowzer!!

  4. I'm with you! I can't wait for this 3 day weekend and the beautiful that is supposed to be!

  5. Fabulous pie. It is a work of art. Happy July 4th to you and your family.

  6. That pie is gorgeous. I love when other people make things like that, it's just not me though. My theory is focus on taste not looks, but I bet that one tastes great too.

  7. I'm feeling lazy today...not enough sleep last night so no pictures on my Hodgepodge today. :( You made up for a lot of us, though with yours. The 'Merica!!! one killed me. :) And thanks to you, I will be singing Bye,Bye,Bye ALLLLLLL day. If only you'd thrown the Fresh Prince in there somehow...we could be stuck on that one, too. lol

    Where do you find the AWESOME gifs???

  8. Of course red looks good on redheads. You just have to pick the right shade. I wear it all the time.

  9. What is it you want to do this weekend? Go to Austria and get a bad haircut? Lol. Fun videos. Love the 'I tried to care.' Your falling remind ed me of our daughter who always feel UP the stairs. Never could figure that one out.

  10. Love this!! And you are SO right - that last Saved By the Bell gif was def. the best episode ever! dramaaa!!

  11. Oh, all your GIFs crack me up! And the Saved by the Bell one...such a good episode! Hope you get to spend a lot of time outside this weekend :)

  12. This is hilarious!! I'm especially loving the Saved By the Bell and Nsync references - such classics!

  13. I was cracking up at all your gifs! Love it! Have a great holiday girl :)

  14. I haven't watched a single MINUTE of any World Cup game. Thanks, but no thanks!
