Life in General
Hope you‘re having a great weekend. Can you believe summer is officially here? It’s time to get those bathing suits on, lather up the sunscreen, and hit the beach. This weekend I am inviting a bunch of friends over for a BBQ. I think I’ll grill some hot dogs and hamburgers, make my special home-made sangria, and serve a ton of ice cream! What are your barbeque favorites?
Although this time of year is tons of fun, I always miss spending the summer with my family and friends who don’t live nearby. But, I found the perfect solution to letting them know I am thinking of them (that doesn’t put a large dent in the wallet). Whether you’re looking for animated or printable cards, MyFunCards has tons! They even have cards that you can customize by adding a pic of your or your friends’ faces! It’s the perfect way to pretend the gang is all together again!
Off to finish getting ready for my BBQ. Enjoy the beautiful weather!
There’s just nothing like summer.
It’s true that wearing white’s been acceptable for a week or so now. It’s also true that the sun’s been out and beating down in a big way. And, indeed, there’s very little on the small (TV) screens and tons of fun stuff on the big (movie) screens. But the truth is… it’s not actually summer yet!
The Summer Solstice takes place June 21, and that marks the official beginning of summer. You know what… who cares? Let’s crank up the air conditioning, pour a tall, sweaty glass of lemonade and start sending out some of these cool Summer eCards!
P.S. Pass the sunblock, please.
Mother Nature is sending some really mixed signals at this point. We just enjoyed such a gorgeous weekend – windows open wide, sandals (no scarves!), birds chirping, parks crowded.
It felt like… SPRING! And it was. Yesterday was the Spring Equinox, otherwise known as the first day of spring. But today, just a day later, it’s back to bulky coats and closed windows here at MFC HQ, where we’re being pelleted by snow and rain. It’s like the weekend never even happened.
But we’re not giving up. We’re taking action and you can, too. Let’s will the new season into being by sending as many spring eCards as we can!
Send ‘em out by the dozens via email. Post ‘em to your friends’ Facebook walls. Let that fickle lady know that, while we appreciate the delicate balance of the ecosystem, once our toes taste the open air, they just don’t like going back into big, clunky boots.
If we all pitch in, maybe she’ll listen.
P.S. Heck no, we’re sick of snow!
A video has been making the rounds on Facebook for the last week or two that just has us cracking up here at MyFunCards HQ! A very, very, very young feminist is filmed by her sister talking about her views on marriage and her future career.
Where do kids get this kind of stuff? Is it TV? Is it the parents? It almost doesn’t matter. Needless to say, it’s absolutely adorable. You go (little) girl!
The things kids say, right?! Well, it reminds us of our own Kid Talk eCards. So sweetly evil!
It also makes us wonder: What are some outrageously lovable things your kids have said to you? Share in our comments below!
I’ve always wished I was one of those people with a photographic memory or an encyclopedic mind. You know, someone who can rattle off stats without blinking twice or who can recall a year later exactly which email included specific information.
I lost hours off of my life this last weekend because of my inferior memory. If I’m honest, it’s also because of my failure to really stop and absorb a simple but poignant piece of writing into my sub-par noggin.
It started… wow. I can’t even remember where. It might have been a quote of the day app on my phone, or a random publication I happened to see. Whatever the case, I glanced (too quickly) at a great quotation. Days later, I was trying to talk about it and I realized that… POOF! It had disappeared.
No problem, I thought arrogantly. I’ll just Google it. Several hours and countless keyword combinations later, I was as empty-handed and empty-headed as when I’d started.
I mentioned this frustration on Facebook and I immediately got a response asking what the quotation was about. I paraphrased (poorly) only to look back moments later to see that my sister had posted the exact quotation! I’m so indebted to her now, not just for saving my temporary sanity. More >
