My dad’s favorite comic strip as a kid was The Flash. Why he didn’t choose a more commercial superhero, I don’t know. But when the CW announced that they were bringing back the fastest man alive for a new series, we got all excited. My dad and I had a little premier party (to which he wore The Flash cape that Bryan and I got him for Christmas a couple of years ago) and I have to say, I really enjoyed it! It’s on the CW, so some amount of teen angst is to be expected, but it’s cool nonetheless.

I’m not linking to this one because if you really want to see, just go to the good ol’ Youtubes. Bryan thinks I’m a freak for watching these, but I’d rather be prepared for whatever horrors are coming my way than not. They still give me the Heeby Jeebies though. Ugh.

This song is old, yes, but I recently rediscovered it while listening to my old favorite study session Pandora station, Deas Vail. Ahh college.

I’m a big fan of Parks and Rec. There is a big joke in my family that my dad is just like Ron Swanson. My dad is super resistant to watching new shows so he wouldn’t see for himself for a long time, but recently he caved and is now a follower of all things Swanson. These cracked me up and totally sounded like Jon McCurdy-isms.

Don’t read this unless you’re in a good crying situation. This made my heart break and my eyes bawl. This is why We want older children. No one deserves to be unloved and unwanted. It only takes more willing people to fix this broken system. Pleeease consider and pray about adoption or fostering.

I am a little bit in love with this couple’s videos on Buzzfeed, and I have to say, this edition was more applicable than the first one!

Listen, I know I’m late to the party on this one, but these are hilarious and I dare you not to binge watch entire seasons. Nevermind the fact that these idiots are making millions a year by doing this.

I’m a big fan of T-Swizzle’s. I feel like whether or not you love her music, you have to respect the fact that she writes it herself and plays it herself and is generally a really nice person and not a diva. Feel me? This song was not my favorite at first, I’m not gonna lie. But then I heard it a bunch, and watched the video, and fell hard. This is my jam now.

You guys, you’re welcome for this. Bodhi and Jenna Elfman decided to do a marriage podcast since they pretty much have Hollywood’s longest marriage (20ish years). It is sooooo hilarious and awesome. They talk about EVERYTHING and even work out their arguments on there sometimes. I’ve tweeted them about it some and they’ve responded! Super cool.

PS: If you listen to it while you work out, it will for sure take your mind off of how much pain you’re in, but you will look like an idiot cracking up to yourself as you run. #WorthIt

I just started this book this week. I like it so far! If you’ve read it and want to do a virtual book club of some sort, let me know!
