Happy Friday! I don’t know where this week has went to, but I can’t really complain! This week’s favorites are filled with funny images, IG, possible free money, movies and my wish list!

If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!

Instagram Photo

I still need to take some more time to finish going through all of my photos from my Japan trip – but I’m getting there! Hoping to have a Japan post next week – stay tuned!

Hilarious Stock Photos

As you know, I’ve been swamped with work lately – and while I was designing a homepage this week I spent a ton of time trying to find the perfect image to use. During my search I came across this one and it cracked me up. When would you ever need this photo?

Another Comic About Me?

The other day I got this comic sent to me in a text from a friend. Not sure what it says about me or our friendship, but the comic made me laugh.

Getting Paid to Watch Cooking Shows

I received an email from Swagbucks this week that told me there is a new way to earn points that I can then use for rewards, like gift cards – watching programs, like cooking programs! I haven’t started to test it out yet, but I was wondering if any of you have any experience with this? It sounds too good to be true but it is very intriguing!

Chicago Movies in the Park

The schedule for free outdoor movies around Chicago has been released and it looks like I have a lot of picnics and movie watching in my future. You can see the list here.

Friday Favorites Week 79


Friday Favorites Week 81


  1. I have no idea when you would need that stock photo but it’s pretty funny! So is that cartoon! I’m intrigued by the Swagbucks thing – I’d watch a few shows to earn rewards! Have the best weekend!

    Doused In Pink

    • Me too! If I have time Monday I’m going to look into it more and hopefully start watching/earning 🙂

  2. I have not tried out the Swagbucks thing but I did see the email. Maybe it is something I need to look into. I love movies in the park. They have not released a list yet here but I know it’s coming soon. It is so magical to go and watch!

    • It is so fun – there is something extra special about being outside on a summer night, relaxing and enjoying a feel good movie!

  3. That stock photo is HILARIOUS! Ahaha. So… unique!

    Happy Friday!

  4. I cannot stop laughing at that stock photo! I’m sure there is a reason for it somewhere! That comic is great too. Hope you have a great weekend!

    • I keep wanting to use it as a placeholder for one of my designs and then send it to the client but they might think I’m insane haha

  5. I love that you do a Friday round up! It’s always good to think of the things you love and enjoy at the end of a crazy week!

  6. That photo is great!! It is like Yin and Yang. 2 complete opposites merged together.
    Love the comic too.
    Have a great weekend sweets!!

    • Def ying and yang! And I know it’s possible for them to be a couple, but the whole image makes me laugh. Like little things too – such as why is the fridge so tiny? lol

  7. I’ve never heard of being paid to watch cooking shows, but I’d be all about that. LOL I love movies in the park. I’m curious to see which films will be playing in the areas near me.


  8. The stock photo is too funny. No idea what that could be used for.

  9. That stock photo is so funny!!

  10. What the…. that stock photo is hilarious! Nope. Can’t think of a sudden reason to ever use it 🙂

    I heard about swagbucks a while ago bit totally forgot about it–sounds like a great offer though! Have a great weekend!

    • Me either but I’m thinking I may need to use it as a placeholder in my next design just to amuse myself haha

  11. I LOVE that dress!!! So pretty. And that picture…what?! I always forget about Swagbucks, but that does sounds pretty cool to get paid watching cooking shows. If you try it, and it works, let me know! Happy weekend!

    • Me too! That one is getting closer and closer to my cart instead of just in my wish list ha. And will do!

  12. I would TOTALLY get paid to watch cooking shows! It’s right up my alley. Thank you for sharing. I never would have know about this without you!

  13. I need to find out how to get payed for watching cooking channels!!! lol I love the vintage dress and converse trainers! Maybe not together though ?

    • You should try it! And you should try dresses with converse – that’s my signature LOL It sounds like a joke, but I wore sparkly converse high tops with my wedding dress even 🙂

  14. Obviously that stock photo would be used allllll the tiime! hahahaha–thats so funny! I guess they were trying to hit all types of couples for variety.

  15. Hey girl 🙂
    I love that floral dress, I can see the minty color looking perfect with your skin tone and dark hair.
    That cooking show looks pretty interesting – I love cooking shows too! Let me know when/if you try it out. Problem with watching cooking shows is that I’m constantly hungry. Hahha!

    I hope you have a great week Alex 🙂

    • Aww, thanks! I do have another dress in that color and I love it. Perfect with my “so white I blend into snow” skin haha And I agree – that is the worst about cooking shows! Even when I watch ones where the things they make aren’t the best. Still hungry lol.
