Bill of Rights Day
Click on the link and you'll see what our rights, in America, are. These are unique because not many other countries in this world have the freedoms we do.  America has its major problems, to be sure, but we are still one of the few countries in the world that offer the freedoms we do to its citizens.

National Lemon Cupcake Day
I'm a wee bit obsessed with all things lemon. I love it!
And I love that in the middle of December lemon makes an appearance to brighten our taste buds!

Here are a couple of recipes to try out. Why not just make both? I don't think you can ever have too much lemon!  :) Click here for one and here for another.

If you are an adult you could always drink a lemon cupcake as well! *wink* Cupcake Lemon Drop Martini Recipe

Cat Herders Day
Well, it's not literal - this day. I mean, if you want to try and herd cats go for it!
Today is actually about trying to manage what seems unmanageable.  What's going on in your life that feels that way?
When I Googled "tips to manage the unmanageable" the only topic that came up in the search was ideas on managing employees!  Surely there are other life topics that feel tough to manage.  Right?  :)

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!
