7 Quick Takes ending with a bit of sass

Holla!  I am not following the Seven Quick Take Format today.  Because my computer is being weird, and weirdness doesn't allow for such things.  So, I'll be doing my own thang shorty.  Ready?

Speaking of thangs and shortys...I think 50 cent is the most handsome man besides my husband.  He was interviewed by Mr. Cohen this week and it was delightful.  Though he uses bad words, and I am pretty sure I could NEVER own any of his music because of the amount of vulgarity...I enjoyed watching him be interviewed.  I also acknowledge everything I just said was probably of a foreign nature for many of you.

Our Cousin is the best!!!
We had the nicest dinner last week with our Cousin Judy, who treated us all to Red Robin for Shawn and Keegan's visit!  It was the perfect way to end our adventurous week!
This is not a good picture, but JP's face is awesome and so it got shared
Our papa's house is awesome.  Don't believe me, check out their backyard on Father's Day.

Aaron's company treated it's employees to a day at the ballpark. It was fancy to go on a date with the husband in the middle of the day.  I had a few adult beverages and we enjoyed a little time without the little ones we love.

Ever have a weekend when you have nothing to do? And then, because you don't have anything to do, you intentionally don't make plans?  So when you think of the weekend, you think...AWESOME!  That's us, this weekend!  Two words.  BRING IT.
Question Bloggers.  SPAM is getting out.of.hand. on my blog.  Is there anyway to avoid this without putting up that annoying verification thing on comments?  I really don't want to do that...but I think I want SPAM less.  GO!
Oh, I am mad.  Ready?
You.GUYS. There is a meme going around facebook right now that is so terrible, but so many people are sharing it, I am overwhelmed.  It says something like,  "I was born because abortion was illegal and because of that I ended up in the foster care system.  Thanks a lot pro-life people, you are really just pro-birth"
I have heard the argument before that pro-life people are really just pro-birth and while I am sure some people might hold that belief, I have never met someone who is passionate about life who is not equally as passionate about caring for those who choose life.  BUT, that is beside the point.

I mean, people who are 'sharing' this meme understand what they are saying is that children/babies who end up in the foster care system are better of dead. Not worthy of living. Not wanted and not worth anything.  SERIOUSLY?  That's something you want to share?
It's enough to make a person SERIOUSLY cranky.  

I hate ending on a cranky note, but I had to!

How about this....
Have an excellent weekend ;)


  1. I changed my settings to not allow anonymous posting and that got rid of the spam without having to put up word verification! There are a couple people who have not been able to comment bc I think they don't have Google accounts but it's been so worth it.

    And that meme? Seriously???? I haven't seen it but really??? Like, you'd rather be DEAD than have lived in a foster home? Wow. I hope you call them out on that one because that's just so stupid. "If abortion were legal when you were born, you wouldn't be able to put up crazy illogical idiotic memes on Facebook."

  2. that's horrible -- who would rather be dead ?
