Funny Photo Monday-Awkward Family Photos

"Andy still doesn’t know that Angela’s having an affair with Dwight. And it’s been seventeen days. I mean, eventually he’ll figure it out, when their kids have giant heads and beet-stained teeth. But right now it’s just…awkward." -Jim, The Office
It’s Monday! So it’s time for the Funny Photos to start our Week off with a smile. These had me laughing so hard. I am such a fan of the Awkward Family Photos website. I love the captions they put up too, they’re brilliant. Go check them out for more laughs. Here are just a few that I thought needed to be shared with you all.
I just love this one. How bad would you feel about your height when Dad says, here kid, go stand on this book so we can see you in the picture.
Can we say inferiority complex? What kind of man would agree to this?
This is just horribly awkward. Gran and Gramps in their skivvies with the whole crew. Was this strip poker gone wrong?
This is LOL cat hell!!

Why is it still cold?!

Today I decided to try something new and exciting...take trax. I am still without a car (which is awful!) and decided to give it a go to see if it is something that I can do more often. My work is conveniently close to the station so its perfect. Matt was even a super duper nice brother and gave me a ride to the station. It all seemed perfect. Well that is until it started to rain a little bit "Lisa, its raining...I don't know about this?!" to which I replied "Meh! Its just a little rain, I'll be fine!" Boy was I wrong! The actual ride was actually quite enjoyable...I got to read some of my book, look at the strange people that get on trax during the day and look out the window. But as was enjoying my ride and looking at the window the weather started to get worst and worst. By the time I got to my destination it was raining pretty hard and the wind was pretty strong. It literally felt like tiny little knives flying through the sky hitting me! Then I decided to see if Tosh would come and get me since he was at work bu he didn't respond so I decided to brave the storm. It was a LONG walk to work. But I made it! And now the sky is blue so hopefully my walk back wont be as awful.

This is what my heart look like...

Yes...this is what my heart looks like this week. A BED! But not just any bed. No! A bed that is by the ocean and can even go into the ocean where I can peacefully float around and sleep or even read my book. This time change is killing me this year! You would think after 50 of these things I would be used to it but meh! No such luck. I know that the time change has something to do with farmers but that was soooo 80 years ago! I wont deny that I don't mind the sun being out longer (the 6pm darkness was torture) I just wish that we could have it be the same all year long, instead I am stuck feeling like I have mono!

This is what my heart looks like...

These are my favorite songs right now...

I accidentally stumbled onto this song and think its adorable and would love to have someone sing this song to me :)

This is my favorite song! It never gets old and I could listen to it over and over!

I found out last night that Rooney is coming on the 26th and I am so excited and this is my favorite song of there's so I am currently listening to it.

Happy Valentines Day!

Well its Valentines Day! I guess this deserves a Yay! Although there really shouldn't be a day designated for should really be everyday! But its still a fun holiday in my book. I of course have my years where I hate it. Mainly when I worked in a big office and would have to go to the front desk to pick up flowers for other people that were delivered to them.Remember how cool Valentines day was when you were in elementary school! You could make boxes write secret messages to people that you like and giggle! And pass out Hello Kitty valentines. It was soo grand! So this year I am going to be doing this. It will be super! But I have a few things that I would like to share to help us all out...they are both videos of course because they are the best and get my point across nicely. The first is an instructional video on how we can make it through this day of love if we don't have anyone to share it with...
This next video is for all the romantics out there like myself. This is my favorite ending to a movie! I think I speak for every woman when I say...this is the dream! So take notes boys!

So Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope its a great one!
