The One with the Quarantine Birthday | Thoughts&Daisies

And just like that, I had my 21st Birthday in quarantine… and it wasn’t awful. So let’s recap

I totally expected to spend my birthday sitting on the couch snacking and watching Disney +, and instead, I had a wacky day filled with surprises.

My family made all these signs to create a ‘Friends’ themed cups and ice party. Which included creating party hats with the cups. Continue reading

Bop to the Top

Bop to the Top |Thoughts & Daisies

In this crazy time we are in, what the world needs is a little more fun and laughter. Even if it has to be through a screen while we all social distance. So obviously the next in the brother-sister dance duos series had to be something fun which leads us too…

I have always loved the High School Musical series ever since it came out and once my brother was old enough to pay attention, I made him watch it too. Whatever I did he had to do too, even if he didn’t want to. That is just the way it works.

The One with the Routine

Happy New Year! 2019, once it got going, went so fast that I honestly can’t tell you where the middle portion of the year went, which is probably why I wrote 2018 as the date 3 days into 2020. In other news, if you are new to the blog, welcome!, and you probably don’t know the love I have of Friends. I watched the whole series for the first time when I was a junior in High School and now that my brother has reached his junior year he watched it, and being us we have taken the love for it a tad bit too far. Meaning it has turned into us quoting Friends all the time and now includes recreating famous scenes from the show. For Thanksgiving, we made Rachel’s English Trifle which you can see HERE

Now if you have never seen Friends or your memory is fuzzy on some episodes, season 6 includes the episode “The One with the Routine,” where our story begins. 

The plot is Joey, Monica and Ross get to be a part of filming “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” and while Joey is busy trying to figure out how to kiss his date on fake midnight, the Geller siblings are doing their best to get on the dance platform so that they get on tv. After a number of failed attempts, they believe that their only option is to bring back their brother/sister routine from elementary school. “We got honorable mention in the brother/sister dance category!”

The One with the Trifle

Every major holiday my family likes to make a new dish. Sometimes it’s an appetizer, sometimes a side dish, but this year it was dessert. 

My mom and uncle have been into FRIENDS since it aired and this year my brother started watching, which meant the only choice for Thanksgiving dessert had to be Rachel’s English Trifle. For all those unfamiliar with this famous dessert from the Season 6 Thanksgiving episode, Rachel is in charge of dessert and was going to make a traditional English Trifle. The only problem is the pages were stuck together and she doesn’t notice she put part of a Shepard’s pie in.
