Whew, another Friday! Even though I didn’t have Monday off per say, I did take the day off from the blog world so it’s felt extra short this week. I will be back in full force next week with at least three posts for you – but for now, it’s time for Friday Favorites!
If you’re new to My Urban Family – welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, products – anything really as well as updates from my life. Let’s dive in!
Photo of Chicago
I have major anxiety about heights. So naturally I am drawn to photos from angles I will *hopefully* never be at – and this one is beautiful.
Ruling Over a Castle in Cork
From 2:18am – 2:21am on Thursday I officially reigned over a castle in Doonawanly, Castletownroche, Co. Cork. How? Well Cards Against Humanitydeemed it so, of course. As part of their sensible holiday gifts, each customer received three minutes to rule over the castle purchased just for the occasion. Last year I was gifted a square foot of a private island which I actually have the deed to.
If you’re not familiar with Cards Against HumanityI suggest purchasing the game right now. Play it with your loved ones. Laugh a lot. And the support everything the creators do, because they’re pretty awesome.
Parenting Skills Test
I have no idea how parents of twins do it. The video cracks me up and amazes me. I’m guessing a lot of patience is learned along the way haha.
Have I mentioned how COLD it is in Chicago lately? Yes? Well apparently the cold effects things like tires – Ok, I knew this. But I still wasn’t thinking about it when I decided to hide out in my house for three days and not leave. And then the other day I was running late and get in my car only to be told that all four of my tires were way under pressure. Oops. Luckily I had a Digital Tire Inflatorin my car and I was able to fill up and head out quickly. Life saver!
Secrets of Legends of the Hidden Temple
If you ever watched Legends of the Hidden Temple, this video is worth a quick listen. Looking back, I know how awful that show really was… but in such a great, great way.
We officially listed our house a week from yesterday. Over the weekend we had five showings and then the week was eerily quiet. However tomorrow we have another showing lined up and then an open house. We’re still trying to keep positive over here but I’m also getting a bit antsy. I know, I know, it has barely been a week.
Aside from playing the waiting game with the house, I’ve been bitten by the travel bug again. It has been a year since we went to Europe. I don’t think another large trip like that is in the cards but I’m itching to plan a short weekend getaway. Any suggestions?
