Chris and I finished Parks and Rec and it was such a bitter sweet moment. I love that show! It has amazing characters and the craziest stories. I laughed with every single episode. It is also a show that Chris and I first bonded over as we got to know each other and so it has a very special place in my heart. Since I did a nostalgic post about The Office, I figured I should do one for Parks and Recreation as well. Thanks Amy Poehler for creating such a wonderful piece of art! (I love that lady.)
Rob Lowe was amazing and Chris Pratt made me laugh in every episode, but the two of them together was magic.
Aubrey as April was pure crazy delight.
Donna and Tom created an entire meme and gave us all the OK to Treat Yo Self. They didn’t take life too seriously and showed us how to deal with cranky pants people.
Anne played the strait woman to Leslie’s mad woman beautifully.
By that I mena, she is gah gah gah-orgeous.
Leslie and Ben are one of my all time favorite TV couple. They are playful, supportive, and kind to one another. Such a great role model of a couple. Most of the time.

If you have access to Google’s earth day logo today click on it and take the quiz. I found out I’m a a woolly mammoth!
This means: So unique, you’re technically extinct, but on the bright side scientists hope to be able to clone you some day! According to my co-work that is totally me. :D Link to the quiz is here as well.
Honestly, need I say more than the title of this post? This looks magical. I love how they took the story of The Little Prince and created a story around that. Amazing. One of my favorite adaptations of The Little Prince was a theater production I saw that had not only amazing acting, but amazing acrobatics. Here is a link to my review of that production. You can read more about the 2015 animated movie production here and watch the trailer below!
I recently acquired a Doctor Who themed phone case of the TARDIS in the Starry Night scene of Van Gogh’s, I got it to match my necklace and inspired by these two items I crafted an outfit last week. I walked into work and showed off my necklace and phone case to my co-worker who is also a huge Doctor Who fan. “You look like a Doctor Who companion!” She exclaimed. Oooh, to go on an adventure with the Doctor!
Pretending I’m figuring out clues is always fun.

My order actually also included a second hard plastic phone cover as well.
I’ve suffering from The Office withdrawal. Even though Chris and I are now finishing out Parks and Rec and it is an amazing show, I spent Thursday evening reminiscing about The Office and watching youtube videos and reading gifs of The Office quotes. Here are some faves.
Pam gets Dwight
Pam Beesly: We need everything back the way it was.
Dwight Schrute: You don’t wanna move. Moving is one of the most stressful things you can do in life. You’ll probably just take it out on your kid. Jim will turn to the drink. The family will fall apart, and twenty five years from now, Cece will become world famous… for stripping.
Pam Beesly: That’s a sad story. I have another one. We move, the other tenants follow, the bank takes the building, takes your farm, takes your car and beats the crap out of you. Penniless, you die, and my daughter Cece dances on your grave… fully clothed.
But they end up best friends. Dahhh.
Michael Scott, best and worst boss.

Summary from IMDB:
A mockumentary on a group of typical office workers, where the workday consists of ego clashes, inappropriate behavior, and tedium. Based on the hit BBC series.
For several months we have been spending our evenings watching The Office. I’ve heard good things about the show over the years, but only caught an episode here or there and never really got into it. At the urging of Chris we sat down and watched it from the beginning and it made so much more sense. This show is incredibly clever, hilarious, and heartwarming all at the same time. There were several instances where Chris and I caught an incredibly clever line that tickled our fancies and we would have to pause the show to laugh for several minutes before we could continue. Even minor characters had amazing lines that were just kind of thrown away in the story unless you were watching and purposefully trying to catch them. Creed was often that character. He has the most amazingly bizarre things to say. For example, in one episode he is the narrator and his take on the days events left us in stitches. (*This show has been over for two years, I don’t considered it spoiler-able.*)
In the parking lot today there was a circus! The copier did tricks on the high-wire, a lady tried to give away a baby that looked like a cat. There was a Dwight impersonator and a Jim impersonator, a strong man crushed a turtle… I laughed. And I cried. Not bad for a day in the life of a dog food company.
I love the show, but more than a few episodes made mad and occasionally anxious, I’m not going to lie. Michael Scott was both a horrible and brilliant manager. Steve Carell is a genius at playing the part. He did an amazing job of making Michael a human being even with all the crazy mad things he did. What a ridiculous person. Unfortunately, a very realistic ridiculous person.
The humanity the existed inside rather caricatures was what made the show. sometimes this made me mad at them for being so human. I spent a time or two pacing the living room and yelling at the screen. I cried once or twice because of a sweet gesture from one character to another. I had all of the emotions, all of the time with this show. It is amazing. One of my favorite friendships to watch develop was Dwight and Pam’s. They understood each other even though they couldn’t always relate to each other. It was an odd, but sweet relationship.
That is probably the very best description of this show. Odd, but sweet. If you haven’t taken the time, you should check it out on Netflix. I recommend starting it from the beginning and working your way through the show. I found it made a lot more sense, and was a lot more fun when i understood all the inside jokes and quirks of the characters as they grew up before my eyes. What a wonderful, wonderful show.
