Spread the Love Week - Day Seven

A funny thing happened on the way to the Post Office.

The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was take a little trip to the Post Office to drop off the little owl that Melissa bought from my Etsy shop. Usually, I hate driving. But since I bought an FM transmitter from Amazon for my iPod, I kind of enjoy it. Now I just kinda bop around in my car to my favorite songs. Well today I was bopping around to G-Dragon's cover of Maroon 5's "This Love" with my windows down. I stopped at a red light and a man on a motorcycle pulled up next to me. I heard him say, "I might be the first person-" and I turned and looked, not quite sure if he was talking to me. He went on to say, "I might be the first person to blow a kiss to you today." And he blew me a kiss! I smiled and said thank you, waving goodbye as the light changed and I drove off. Oooh Mr. Motorcycle man, if only you were 20 years younger..

Although I admit that's sort of creepy *LOL* I still thought it was sweet. That guy is literally Spreadin the Love! <3

Today I did my part for Spread the Love week by picking up litter on the side of the road. I'm a total environmentalist, and I've always been a hippie girl at heart. I live within walking distance from a Hobby Lobby (where I work) and a Target, so a lot of times I'll walk and pick up trash either on the way there or the way home. Today though, I went out just for the trash, not to actually go to the stores. I ended up collecting one and a half bags full of litter, which isn't very much, considering I walked for quite a while. I feel bad that I couldn't gather up much, but then again it's a good thing because it means people haven't been littering much lately! *hooray!*

After I got home, *I washed my hands reeally well* and took my old rollerblades to the park and did a few laps around the track. It was fun, but I'm super uncoordinated, and I was scared I'd fall and hurt myself. >_< I didn't, this time..

And I wanted to share this little somethin special with you..
I saw this randomly on We Heart It. I recognized the words as being Korean, so I clicked on it to try and figure out if I could read anything.
I'm fairly certain the words in the bottom left hand corner say "banana milk." I laughed out loud. :) Especially considering I recently watched this video by Simon and Martina of Eat Your Kimchi, where they mention banana milk being a popular drink in Korea. Martina tries it for the first time and says, "Ooh! This is my nightmare!" Funny. :]

I hope you all had a great week spreading the love. I know I did. A big thank you to Melissa of Oh My Darling for starting the Spread the Love movement. So inspiring that she was a victim of a heartless crime, and she turned it around to make the world a better place. <3 Let's make every week Spread the Love week!
