Cool Thing Friday #12 - Before & After, Side by Side

This Cool Thing Friday I have the day off!  So I'm sharing Friday's cool stuff today - Before & After's and Side by Sides.

Someday Nicholas and I will hike the PCT.  This guy did it and you can watch his 1700 mile, 159 day journey and 90lb transformation in just 3 minutes.  The end is the best part.

This is a crazy transformation in Mississippi.

Since we have to wait until January for Downton to start again, we can bide our time looking at our favorite characters in and out of costume.  Mrs. Hughes!

And if you binge watched Orange Is the New Black like me...and now its over, we can bide our time looking at our favorite characters in and out of costume.  Crazy Eyes!

This photojournalist had 40 Photoshop experts around the world retouch her photo to match their idea of beauty.  {Full slideshow here}.  Why am I not surprised that the US looks the most creepy?


And our own personal boy and dog.

Most of these are like woah!  But I'm not going for Leo or Zach Ganlifianakis. {via}

Love a celebrity look alike?  Check out faux Emma Watson.

Alrighty friends, happy Friday to all and to all a good weekend, especially those with a 3 day weekend.

Cool Thing Friday #11 - Babies and Boobies

So, it's National Breastfeeding month.

Considering that, maybe we should start the month off by awarding this teen barista at Starbucks.

Here is a breastfeeding chart with some interesting facts...

Way to go CA, OR & ID!

I don't really understand why breastfeeding has seemed to be such a big deal in the news lately.  I saw something that said we should stop calling it breastfeeding and start calling it baby-feeding....we aren't feeding our breasts anyway, right?  Would people really be less freaked out if we said "I'm baby feeding" instead of "I'm breastfeeding"?  Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing people.  Really.  Let's not make it sexual just because boobs are involved, OK?  It is about feeding and nourishing a baby in the best and most healthy way available.  That is all.

How about this Dad and his baby?

You can check out his awesome photo series here.

Dang girl. And Dad.  I don't know how keen I'd be on my husband if he filmed my labor on a GoPro!  In a parking lot no less!

A Cup of Jo is doing her Motherhood Around the World series again, it's so intriguing, I'm loving it!

Is it  just me or does this seem like a terrible idea for welcoming a new baby home?  I suppose I should consider the source.  Just sayin'.

Loving these photos, this blended family and this adorable baby.

Sorry, but this weirds me out.  What a family dynamic!

Last but not least, we had some amazing family pictures (and maternity photos) taken a few weeks ago!

If you are in the Sacramento area and looking for a photographer, please call Tina Norton and tell her I sent you!

Cheers to babies & boobies on this Friday!
