Remind Me

Two of the most dynamic country singers join up for today's song that my friend, Alison, told me I had to listen to!  Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.  I don't think there needs to be anymore explanation about why the song is fantastic!  Their names say it all.  Two extremely talented musicians/singers joining up for a duet?  AWESOME. 
The song is such a good one for couples who have found themselves forgetting what it was like in the early days of their relationship.  It's hard to keep that flame going when you have jobs and kids and a home and whatever else on your plate, they all serve as distractions and before you know it you are looking at each other over the table and you can barely recognize the person you are much less the person you fell in love with!  We all need reminders, we all need to be pro-active in keeping the flame alive because one day the kids will be gone, the job will be done, the distractions will be minimal and you will find yourself wondering what kind of marriage you are in.  Don't let that happen, remind each other NOW about the reasons why you fell in love, about what you love about each other.  You won't regret taking the time to keep the flame alive!

Let's talk about style. Not current fashion but those fashions we sported back in our younger days. You know those days - when we thought we looked G.O.O.D. *wink* 
In the spirit of the day here's a few photos of my stellar fashion sense back in my day. 
August 1983 - I LOVED this dress, I wore it a lot and I thought I was quite the cutie in it! 
I'm not just outing my fashion sense today but my brother's as well - look at his shorts and socks! Hahaha! And then there's me. I remember this outfit very well - I put a lot of thought into it. I was definately going through a pink phase - you can't see it here obviously but my entire bedroom was pink walls - as in bubblegum pink - along with white wallpaper that had pink hearts on it. This was in July 1986. 
Huh. I just noticed that with the posting of this picture and the two above there's a lot of pink. I must have liked it much more than I thought. To be fair this sweater I'm wearing in September of 1987…


Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!
