Men Make Dinner Day
Does your guy make dinner...ever?  If not, then this day is one for him to give it a go!  There's no reason to be scared, he's got a whole website dedicated to helping him, and other dudes, out.
The man doth protest: The fake holiday is lame, stale, and condescending
The trend of men staying out of the kitchen may be shifting. When Their Workday Ends, More Fathers Are Heading Into the Kitchen
If your guy is the one who makes dinner the majority of the time then why not flip this day and make dinner for him? 
HAHAHAHAHAHA!  I have to include this because it is totally true of my hub and I.
When he makes dinner the kitchen stays relatively clean? When I do?
It's like a bomb has gone off!
Yes, my man happens to make dinner every so often or help me make dinner.
That's my most favorite, when we make it together and are in the kitchen together.

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?
