In The Big House

Today kicks off Blue's 2011 football season and I for one am excited!  Hailing from the great state of Michigan my family and I are loyal to U of M and their football team.  And lucky for me this year at work there is quite a "large" contingency of Wolverines, totally outnumbering the (hissssssss) Buckeyes!  :)  Haha, I love having fun with it.  In fact I wore my U of M tshirt to work yesterday and represented. 
So today's song is by a group called Pop Evil.  I have NO idea.  I have never heard of them, something tells me that I wouldn't be too keen on any of their other music.  The only reason I am featuring this song is because it is Michigan!  This year we are playing our first night game in OUR house against Notre Dame.  It promises to be a big match-up.  The Big House seats 120,000 and my friend at work, a fellow Wolverine thank you very much, told me that 150,000 tickets were requested!  That means about 30,000 are possibly sitting in the parking lot watching the game on TV just to be near the action!  And lest you be mistaken...our colors are NOT yellow and blue.  We are maize and blue - get it right.  :) 
Here's to College football - the only kind of football I like watching!

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!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
