Hey-o! First and foremost, I’m on an airplane. You guys. Clearly I need to get out more because I get ticked pink when I can be on my computer on the INTERNET when I’m flying. Who even knows a) what the Internet is and b) how the heck these planes fly in the air. Ooh hold, beverage cart is coming around…
I’m back. Anyways, if you’re wondering what fabulous place I’m going to on this airplane I’m flying to NJ to see my fam. More on that later. This post is a random assortment of fun things I’ve seen on the Internet and the old TV. So sit back, relax and read about my latest fun finds:
Living to 100. Did you know that all you have to do to live to 100 is drink red wine? Okay, there’s more to it than that. But I saw this intriguing story on the Today Show (my source for news) about how people in Sardinia, Italy are doing this whole thing right. Sardinia is one of the “blue zones” meaning one of the areas around the world where its residents are more likely to live to 100 years old. You can read the article HERE and can see some of these healthy folks below.

Speaking of health, and the Today Show, I saw another segment worth noting. Lidia’s (as in Bastianich) kids have a cookbook out called “Healthy Pasta!”
Now while this book title may sound like an oxymoron, the recpes featured on the Today Show actually looked really good. Like this spaghetti with turkey meatballs…Maybe I’ll make this soon and put it on the ole blog…
From pasta to flowers…sounds about right for this blog. I stumbled across this beautiful DIY floral arrangement perfect for spring from The Sweetest Occasion. I love love love this and if you have a big white bowl you can do it too.
How about some funnies?
If you’re into emojis, and if you have an iPhone – you are, you will LOVE this list of emojis for thirty somethings. Like this one below that screams “FRIDAY NIGHT!” Man I wish these were real.
This other article is. so. funny. I credit my friend Leighton for sending me this. Just read the comments. I die. It’s a buzzfeed article that focuses on a Humans of New York post about a girl named Beyonce. Need I say more?
In wedding news, I’ve stumbled across this gorgeous courthouse wedding pic I wanted to share. While a courthouse wedding isn’t flashy enough for some people (ahem, my giant wedding) I think they can be so beautiful and intimate. Nobody can argue that this couple isn’t happy as as heck. Plus you get to wear one of these adorably short white dresses.
Speaking of weddings, I literally am in love with this garden wedding from Napa. I’m in love with this light installation under the trees.
You know what would be perfect with this garden wedding? This beautiful single tier wedding cake brimming with flowers.
Also check out this link for more beautiful single-tier cakes. Love.
In the world of my writing, I’ve got two fun articles out in local Charlotte papers. First off, I wrote a confession in Today’s Charlotte Woman magazine about how I can’t garden. I want to, but I can’t. Or I’m too lazy to water. You decide. Pick up a copy or check it out online on page: 48-49.
I also talked about camping (actually just making s’mores in your backyard) in Lake Norman Magazine.
Now that baby girl is 10 months old and totally helped with this blog post.
So this time my other cousin (the one on the left!) is due in a month and her bear-themed baby shower has arrived!
I hope you enjoyed my random assortment of fun things. I’m looking forward to celebrating this weekend! Have a great weekend!
