My mom and I had dinner with my grandparents tonight. They're just shy of 80 years old and seriously hilarious. My g-ma (which we fondly call her) is like the incredible shrinking woman, and my grandpa is a 3 times semi-retired Irish Catholic Dr. that thinks wine is universal medicine, which he brews in his basement. They're beautiful people and I love being able to sit with them and soak up their stories and knowledge.

In addition to career advice and leading me to life revelations, this is what I learned from my grandpa tonight:
Lesson #1: the world is full of PITAs (pain in the...ahem).
Lesson #2: he is a proud member of the local ROMEOs (rotten old men eating out).
Lesson #3: he had over 50 shirts made, each one deeming "JESUS LOVES YOU" in large font, with a lovely, very small subtitle of "everyone else thinks you're a donkeyhole."

(the substitution of words was necessary...this is a family place so I keep my blog PG).

Hope you found these lessons as valuable and enlightening as I did.

The mad ones

I was going through old photos and I came across photo-magnets filled with inspirational quotes. I LOVE this quote from Jack Kerouac! It is such a refreshing perspective and I hope to always live like the roman candles exploding across the stars.
Burn, burn, burn, baby!

Coolest kids in town

This video is awesome! I'm always so impressed by mash-ups, especially when they're of my favorite songs, and I'm just impressed by singers and guitar players in general, so this is an especially exciting video. Plus the singer reminds me of a skinny version of Jacob from Twilight, so it makes me giggle. Nerd alert! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Amurica!

Happy July everyone!!
We are just days from one of my favorite holidays, and I'm so excited! I love spending the day out on the lake with family and friends, complete with amazing American food on the grill, an old-fashioned egg toss and tug-a-war at the yacht club, and then watching fireworks while snuggled in with the one you love.

How can you not LOVE this holiday!?

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone :)
