Rad, Random, and Tuesday Topics

I've got my hands full of dried hot glue from a DIY project. And you know I'll be blogging about it. 

First of all, totally random, but all of the sudden I'm addicted to trail mix. It may or may not have something to do with the MandMs inside of said trail mix. It's kind of like if they get in my mouth it's not my fault. It's not exactly like eating a bag of MandMs, right? Riiiiight.

Second, Mother's Day is Sunday and I've requested donuts.

Third, I'm supposed to be watching what I eat so I can loose my I don't give a shit-I can eat what I want-I'm in Vegas pounds. 

I was just watching Jimmy Fallon and I think I may have developed a crush on John Krasinski (also known as Jim from the Office) after seeing that rad lip syncing bit. Google it. You'll have a crush, too.

Yeah, I just used the word rad. I'm feeling all blast from the past after hearing Cannonball from the Breeders on Fallon tonight. Am I in middle school? Is it 1993?

And that bit of randomness has been brought to you by Tuesday Topics!

The Austin Family Diary

Two must do bucket list items:

I want to go to Brazil and visit the Christ the Redeemer statue. I need to do this in my life. Once upon a time I worked for an airline that flew to Brazil and I also worked for an adoption agency that had a program in Brazil. So the trip has been close but no cigar. Some day!

Is this not insane?


I also want to take my family, specifically my oldest son, back to Hawaii. He was born there and I want him to see it! Especially the North Shore. 

I've got a DIY project to get back to! 

What's on your bucket list?

  5. Love your bucket list! Ps, the M&Ms in trail mix taste so much better than the ones from an M&M bag!! I think it's the salty sweetness :)
