Friday Frivolity Flash Mobs Style! A Linky Blog Party for All Things Fun and Funny!! Link-Up Now!

Welcome to Friday Frivolity!!

Hello Friday, and hello friends!

I'm embarrassed to realize that I have not posted ANYTHING this past week, due to my singleminded devotion to my Nanowrimo project at the moment, but there's no way I would miss Friday Frivolity with y'all! 


Also, if you're the crafting / cooking / baking / "why yes, I made that fantastic object myself" kind of person (or want to be!) be sure to come back tomorrow for all kinds of DIY deliciousness, at the Happiness is Homemade party I'm cohosting this month too. :) 



Has anybody actually participated in a flash mob? I want to SO MUCH. For some reason the topic popped into my head, and I thought I'd share some two of my favorite flash mob videos! If these don't make you smile like an idiot, you might not be human. But I still love you even if you're not human! Huge props to my non-human readers out there! Cyborgs, mutants, and literate animals, UNITE! ;P 



First up, check out this video of a sneak-attack dance performance in Antwerp... The fact that they are performing to a much-beloved song from The Sound of Music just makes it better. (I also really enjoyed this other video that showed just how much work went into putting all that together...)


 


For a similar, less musical but even more hilarious exploit, check out this video... an old favorite of mine that is basically icing on the cake of sheer brilliance. These "gatherings" are orchestrated yearly by a group in New York called Improv Everywhere.  I totally need to look and see if there is a Dallas chapter...  Also, in case you can't tell from the video, all these people are listening to coordinated instructions on MP3 players. And it increases in awesomeness from there.


The Mp3 Experiment 2.0 from ImprovEverywhere on Vimeo.

If anyone has a favorite flash-mob video, pretty-please, do share!

The Host:


Friday Frivolity Host Sarah Eliza from Devastate Boredom




Sarah Eliza is on a mission to Devastate Boredom by living a life full of all of her favorite things... friendship and connection, laughter, furbaby love,  books and media, wellness pursuits, minimalism, traveling, Paleo-ish cooking, and on and on!  Come by each week for the Friday Frivolity blog party and start your weekend off right!



The Guest Co-Host: 


Friday Frivolity Guest Co-Host Alexandra of My Urban Family




We are so excited to welcome Alexandra from My Urban Family as our guest co-host for this week!  Alexandra is a wonderful lifestyle blogger and graphic designer who writes about family-centered life in Chicago.  She's had lots of great posts lately about the upcoming holidays, gift ideas for difficult people, etc, but my FIRST favorite post from her was all about 90's toys... oh nostalgia factor wedded with ebay money-making opportunities!  ;P  (Pssst, want an easy, special, homemade gift for Grandma and Grandpa without too much crazy glue and glitter everywhere??  Check out Alexandra's personalized coloring pages, converted from YOUR own photos!  Your holiday "awwww" moment is just a few crayons away!)  Go say hi and tell Alexandra you stopped by!

 Drum roll for our feature please, chosen via the number of readers' clicks! 

Our feature this week is from Women Abiding, an encouraging post entitled 4 Unusual Things I Do With My Children.  The author encourages readers to value the small, unique habits and traditions that fill your family with "everyday sparkles."  Check it out if you didn't last week! 

Time for the new stuff! 

We love funny and/or encouraging posts, free printables, giveaways, and other fun stuff to make us SMILE and start the weekend off on the right foot. 

If you're just here to have fun, skip the rules and start clickin'! 


If you're a blogger here to link up, please read the rules below. Note that you are welcome to share up to three links and that older posts are always welcome too!

Bloggy buddies, three rules only: 

1. Please be generous with your clicks and comments! Blogging is all about connection, and nothing is more fun than knowing something you wrote was meaningful to a reader. Encourage one another with your presence and interest. :) 

2. Link back to one of the hosts' site please!  (the old Free and Fun Friday blog button is fine as well)

3. Follow Devastate Boredom AND My Urban Family via your favorite bloggy source... Let us know that you followed and where, and we will follow you back in return! 

As a bonus, please consider tweeting about the party!  More people at the party means more reading-and-commenting love all around!

Here's an easy way to tweet:



Every post you link will be read and commented on, and rule-following posts will be pinned AND tweeted as a thank-you for the extra effort.  

Lastly, if you are interested in participating in Friday Frivolity as a co-host, whether just once or more regularly, click here to let me know!  Not only is it fun to host with buddies, it's more exposure for your site and the posts linked up... good stuff all around.  :)

We're so happy you're here! Let's have some fun. :D

  1. I would love to participate in a flash mob, too. Hmmm...maybe we could just do it together, although I'm not sure the impact of a lone Texan and Floridian would be very effective... Hope your writing's going great and that you have a super weekend!

    1. Aw man, too bad! I always feel extra admiration for that first person to get out there and start dancing / singing / whatever. I would totally do it though, just to be able to say I did. ;P
