Randoms & Happy Weekend

Hooray for Friday! Do you have fun plans this weekend?

We are looking forward to hanging at home after last weekend's trip to Orlando. If you follow me on Instagram (JordanG106), you saw some Epcot pics! It was very fun but VERY cold. I had to go into the Disney store to buy a beanie for my poor, freezing head. I never thought I would need one on my Florida getaway! I'm amazed I was able to find this plain black one without a Mickey Mouse on it or something...

(I was being my usual self–a big dork– in this picture. We stuffed ourselves inside a red phone booth in the "England" section of the world tour at Epcot.)


I'm on the hunt for a filing cabinet. Exciting, I know. Ideally I would love to stumble upon an awesome vintage filing cabinet with some industrial character. I saw this one on Craiglist and loved the bright color, but there is no way I would pay $200! How about $20 instead?

My "filing cabinet" search did turn up this beautiful antique cabinet on Craigslist. Isn't it COOL? I would love to have this but I don't have $1,800 to throw around and I have no place to put it!

I discovered a street in one of our neighboring suburbs that has 7 thrift stores on it! I'm going to go on a mega-thrifting adventure tomorrow as I search for the perfect filing cabinet. 


If you have an extra 30 minutes, you should check out this NY Times article about how junk food is scientifically engineered to be addictive. It's a fascinating read. (And you'll really need 30 minutes because the article is THAT long!)


My brother is a high school basketball coach at our old high school, and his team made national news this week when his team (Franklin High) passed the ball to a special needs player on the other team (Coronado High) so that he could make a basket on senior night. It was a really touching moment. It's supposed to be on CBS Evening News tonight! I don't know if my brother will be featured, but he said it was an amazing moment that he'll never forget.


* Have an amazing weekend! *
