Random Friday (I just happen to be a couple days late!)

Ok, I missed making it to my blog the last couple days and I thought this was a rather fun idea of Sariah’s. I thought I’d tweak it just a bit and write down some of my favorite random quotes and sayings. Feel free to share some of yours with me as well . . .
