Friday in Photos

Hey y’all!  Happy Friday!  I’m super busy today but I thought it would be fun to do a little post today with some of the random photos from my phone.  We’re a little weird down here in Florida so you’ve been warned.

Here we go.


My Plank time this morning, GO ME! #Plankathon


And this is what I look like after a 4 minute plank, it’s not pretty….



This little guy can make a bed anywhere. So freakin cute.

peacock and dog

He also lets me know when the dudes are hungry.


This is Charles, and yes, he thinks he’s in charge. Charles is an indigo peacock and he eats out of my hand. He’s a spoiled booger.  People sometimes stop their cars in the street and get out to take photographs of these guys.


Big Boy

This is Big Boy, Big Boy is ALWAYS hungry.

Mom burst

This is the first picture of a burst that mom hopefully accidentally took.  (Surely no one is this bad at taking pictures…) It contained over 40 pictures of some random dudes legs. Seriously.

burst from mom

This is about the 11th pic in the burst…


And this is the last pic. I hate this picture, it makes me want to rip that string off his damn shorts.  Clearly Mom is horny, or a bad photographer.

sweet tea

I am slightly obsessed with sweat tea. I blame my sister, it’s all her fault.


Hank is very proud of his poop. He creates sculptures with it. We call it poop art.  Sadly, I’m not kidding. 

Hanky Poo

One day people will pay lots of money for my poop art.  I AM Poo-casso!


This was my tree. I say was because it took 3 days to finish putting it up but I didn’t like it, so I took it all down and re-did it. I still don’t know if I like it.  Yeah, I said I was weird, we’ve established that.

fly fishing shoes

I got these shoes because I thought they had little birds on them. They’re actually fly fishing flies. Easy mistake right?

That’s it, gotta run.

What is the most random photo on your phone right now?

I guess I’m not newsworthy….

Well y’all, I was expecting to show you bonafide proof of the shopping abilities that my mom and I possess but sadly, that won’t be the case.

You see, on Saturday mom and I hit up the annual city wide garage sales of Indian Rocks Beach and we finished at the last sale which was at the church.  A reporter from the local paper came up to us and asked if he could interview us and take our photo for the paper…..uh, hell YES!


Anyway he took a few pictures, asked us some questions and wrote down all our pertinents and such and then told us which edition it would be in.  So this morning I got up at 5AM, (not to look for the article, it’s just when I normally get up, I swear), and I found the paper online, scrolled to page 3 and saw this:


Bargain Seekers, wtf? And no picture of me and mom?

I guess the editor thought that a new bait shop trumped the garage sale story.

Whatevs….I don’t need no stinkin’ local paper to tell me I’m the undisputed champ of Power Shopping! I’ve got the credit card bills to prove it bitch!

For the past two days I’ve gotten to 3 and a half minutes in the plankathon. I’m going to refer to it as the #plankathon until I reach my goal.  Because plankathon is a lot easier to hashtag than #AllIWantForChristmasIsA5MinutePlankAndOtherStuff, don’t you think? Yeah, me too. #plankathon for life… or the month of December, whatever it takes.


Preach it Ludwig!

And I can’t let you go today without telling you about this one local runner, Meredith Mikell, who did what so many of us runners do from time to time, she went out for a run and decided to take a different route. A route that she hadn’t run in quite a while.

And I know what you’re thinking, but this is a good story.

A short time after she began running she noticed huge amounts of smoke coming out of a house and as she got closer she realized the house was on fire. Thanks to her quick reaction, the mother and daughter who were sleeping inside that house made it out safely. You can read about the story here.

So what are you up to today? Got anything exciting going on?
Have you ever made the papers?  What for?
