Four Smiles and One Potential Hot Mess

Several things have brought a big smile to my face in the last few days, so I thought it was only fair that I spread the cheer. I’m pay it forward that way.

But I want you to leave this post on a positive note instead of rocking back and forth in the fetal position. Therefore, I will start with the hot mess. I need you to tell me how to feel about this situation. I can only come up with two words: hold me.


Seriously. Sometimes, there are no words.

And when that happens, it’s my job to distract you with fun, whimsical, random musings that fill my pretty little head. You’re welcome.

1. Hot Dude Camera Roll

At least once a week, I text my friend Amy a picture of a hot dude, just to make her day a little brighter. I was flipping through my iPhone photos and found myself giggling at the stream of good looking guys staring back at me. Here’s a small sampling of Amy’s phone suitors:

“Beckett has nothing on you.”

“See you at the show in November.”

PaleyFest 2012 Presents "New Girl" - Arrivals
“Okay, okay. I’ll hold a class to teach guys how to properly kiss a woman.”

“Admit it. I’m your favorite superhero because I have chest hair.”

2. Speaking of Hot Dudes…

My friend Emily sent me this picture.

Hey Girl

Apparently there is an ENTIRE book featuring the Ryan Gosling “hey girl” meme. Oh you don’t know what that is? Welcome to class…




3. Unskinny Bop — NOT


I scored this CD for $4 at Wal-Mart a few days ago! The track list does NOT include “Unskinny Bop” or “Something to Believe In.” I guess that’s what you’re paying for when the CD touts 10 GREAT SONGS instead of greatest hits. If you want the entire list, you have to pony up a few more bucks. At least.

4. Choosing Baby Names

I laughed out loud four times at this entry about a guide to new dads on how to choose a name for your baby. You must CLICK HERE!

Now it’s your turn!  What’s making you smile this week?  Besides that picture of Henry Cavill I just posted above?
You’re welcome again.

“What day is it? What. Day. Is. It?” Oh the Geico camel commercial makes me smile every Wednesday.

Hey Jen…It was my turn to wake up the kids for school and that is how we started the morning and it made me smile to see both my kids smiling and walking around the house quoting the camel commercial. I’m glad that I made their morning just a little happier.

Lincee…what has made me smile lately is the ride home from school listening to my kids share the exciting stuff going on in their lives. Those are the days I am glad I live 15 minutes from town and we are stuck together talking about our days. Wouldn’t trade it for the world! No music, no cranky momma, just the kids talking about the day. Makes my heart sing!

Add Scott Eastwood to your hot dude list. Why in the world am I just hearing about him?!? Enjoy!

Thank you for this post. I really needed a little pick me up. I used to send a friend pictures of good looking men each week, but I did it on Tuesday, and we called it Tatsy Treat Tuesday.

Am I the only one that is looking forward to Harry as a judge on the next season on American Idol? I’m going to tune in every week just so I can look at that beautiful man.

Why does NBC have to go and ruin Rogers and Hammerstein’s Sound of Music like this? Can we talk about the crazy Heidi hair? Nothing good can come of this.

I LOLed at the “boyfriend material.” Love it!

I laughed so hard at the Ryan Gosling chicken coop meme!!! Just about every blogger I follow has a chicken coop…I don’t get the appeal really? Too funny 🙂

Loved your list! I smiled big time when I saw that 1) Outlander was going to be a TV series on Starz (yes I missed the memo on this one!!) and 2) they’ve chosen the leads!!!! Hello Claire and Jamie! I can’t remember if you’ve read these books, but I know they were on the “list” at one time. You must do this if you haven’t!! Prior to the 2014 TV debut. Oh, and check out the dude playing Jamie 🙂 Sam Heughan, and he is a bonafide Scot. You’re welcome 🙂

I have to withhold judgment until it airs, but, holy space balls, that picture is just wrong. Too much make-up (or airbrush) for the dress. Maria is not glam. Not even a little.

the baby name blog post is awesome! Thanks for this post!

The Australian Bachelor is a laugh a the Ryan Gosling memes though!

Oh how I needed this!!! I think about the things that have made me smile lately and this is it!
Superman makes my mouth water. Literally.

Anyone else like Alex O’Laughlin? Hawaii 5-0? Sigh…

Also the possibility of fall…..makes me smile.

P.S. Ag – where the heck has young Eastwood been. Look up picks of him and there are some ones where he looks SO much like his dad.

Love the post! Amen to Trisha, so excited about Outlander coming to TV. Was a little disappointed with the Jamie casting at first but he is growing on me.

Lincee, I think we need a category for your Hall of Fame post so they are easy to access. Ladies, Lincee has great taste in men so you can be sure they have been posted on this blog somewhere, Alex O’Laughlin included!

Carrie Carrie Carrie … what? Really? No no no no…

My husband would leave me for Carrie Underwood and, as a rule, I like her and her music. But, I guarantee she is going to butcher the role of Maria Von Trap and The Sound of Music – my favorite movie ever!!! I will not be able to watch this, so I hope your expert blogging skills will sum it op for me on December 6th.

Would love your thoughts! Click here to share.x
