Facebook Friday 5/25/18

Hey, hey, it’s Facebook Friday!

Although I haven’t been too active on the blog, I have been a tiny bit active on Facebook this past week. Still a bit hectic in my world. Everyday after work is always something; from shopping to getting library cards and cooking or, for the past two days anyway, baby classes. Let me tell you, there is a lot. I’m definitely grateful for these classes cause I readily admit I know nothing about human babies. It’s baby CPR next Saturday. Yikes! I don’t even know how to do adult CPR. Hope I’m never in a situation where I have to and if I am, hope I don’t freeze panic.

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

Again, as usual, no memes were shared. I just haven’t seen any on Facebook or Twitter! Maybe I’m not looking hard enough.

However, I did share two videos on Facebook. The first one is all about turtles which are my favorite animals. May 23rd was World Turtle Day and National Geographic made a video post not only celebrating turtles as a species with a few facts but also to bring awareness to the fact that almost all turtle species are endangered in some form or another mostly due to habitat desctruction such as all the plastic in the ocean they mistake for food. Anyway, check it out below:

The other video I shared was a clip from the Ellen show that was so fun! The game they’re playing is called MOVIE and it’s like HORSE but with media. So what the players do is name a movie and the other person has to name an actor or actress in the movie and then it goes back and that person has to name a different movie and so on and so forth until someone is stumped. Whoever spells out the world MOVIE first wins. There was also a surprised scare that I found absolutely hilarious so if you’re looking for a good laugh, check out this video as well:

Lastly, I didn’t share any pictures on Facebook. However, my husband’s second job is with a furniture company called Arhaus and he got a surprise when he went into work yesterday:


They made him a cake that says “Welcome Baby Hollywood” (Hollywood is his nickname) and it had cute little Care Bears sticking out all over. They also pitched in together and bought a bunch of baby stuff for us. This is everything unwrapped:


It’s one step closer to becoming real for us man. We are super grateful to them for this load considering we’re slackers and only had like 2 baby things so far (in our defense we’re waiting til after the shower to see what additional items we’ll need so we don’t buy duplicates!).

That’s it for me this week. Extended weekend this week because Memorial Day on Monday. It’s highly likely I won’t be posting because I’ve been told we’re going to a BBQ so yay grilled food!

I hope you all had a wonderful week and have an even more wonderful weekend. See you next week!

  1. Nel, those baby clothes are so so so beautiful. So cute and so cuddly.
    The people at work are so sweet to do this.
    Looking at the cake made me realize, I got to get me some. Yummy.
    Hope you are doing good, girl. πŸ˜˜β€οΈπŸ’œ


  2. aww. That baby surprise package is sooo sweet. At the risk of ‘colour stereotyping’ I’m guessing you’re expecting a boy?
    My kids seem to have a sixth sense for your posts. The middle one this time, came up behind me and told me to ‘please press play on the turtle’…. 😳 We enjoyed the informative clip. Thank you πŸ™‚

    1. I actually have no idea what’s coming. I opted for surprise and closed my eyes at the gender checking bits on the ultrasound. Haha. Hoping for a boy though! We’ll see!
      Your kid can sense the turtle powers! πŸ˜‚ That’s cool cause turtles are the best. 😁 You are welcome!

        1. Lol that’s what everyone says but I don’t really understand why. Babies won’t care what colors they’re wearing cause they won’t even know, haha. And then you can’t call them body snatchers when they make you miserable if you know the gender. πŸ˜‰

    1. It was very nice. Haha, yes Shortpants has plenty of nicknames! They’ll probably carry over for a while too til we have a concrete name after birth. πŸ˜‰
