“As hard as it is and as tired as I am, I force myself to get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends, or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just work.” —Jennifer Lawrence
If you get just a wee bit envious thinking of how far Jennifer Lawrence has come by the age 27 (really? she’s only 27?!?!), you’re not alone…
Not to mention having appeared in Time’s 100 most influential people in the world and in the Forbes Celebrity 100 (multiple times)…
All envy aside, it’s most important to remember — don’t hate, CELEBRATE all women who’re going out for theirs!
While watching the two joyful souls share a glass or two of Cuban rum in the clip above, please join us in wishing Ms. Lawrence a very Happy Birthday, and many more!
If you’re Catholic, get ready for a feast on Wednesday, August 15 2018!
Feast you say? Count us in!
While the Assumption of Mary into Heaven is technically a “feast” day, some might be remiss discovering that it’s not actually about stuffing oneself. 😕
Should you want to plan a large gathering or meal with friends and family however, we think Mary would most certainly approve. 🤗
Seriously though, taking time to honor the mother of mothers on her Heavenly birthday is time well spent.
Mary… what a lady!
Is there anything more divinely luscious than a well-crafted lemon meringue pie?
We think not.
Obviously, you could high tail it to your favorite pastry shop for a slice on National Lemon Meringue Pie Day…
Follow along in the video below for the skinny on making this shortbread-crusted, meringue-topped tartastic delight.
If that doesn’t look absolutely friggin’ delicious, you may need to check your pulse.
Hey, take it easy… it’s National Relaxation Day!
Relaxation can be found in many different forms, and doesn’t have to fall outside of your daily routine.
You’ll feel much better, regardless of what challenges you’re overcoming!
