Friday Favorites - World Cup 2014 Addition

Happy, Happy Friday :)

This girl has big, big plans this weekend. They include being outside in the sun, going to Portland's Saturday Market...maybe laying by my grandma's pool. Going on a hike since there is no rain in the forecast for the next 10 days. Potentially watching The Fault In Our Stars, although, honestly, I am afraid I will cry like a little baby in public and I am not sure anyone needs to see that. 

You know, really important weekend things. Basically what I am saying is I need to day to fly by so this fabulous weekend full of plans and no plans can start. Before the weekend starts though, let's link up with Amanda for Friday Favorites and talk about some of my favorite things that happened this week.

My favorite moment this week - besides my sister graduating - had to be falling asleep while reading outside yesterday afternoon. Gosh I love a good unexpected nap, especially when it is outside in the funshine. 

For my favorite links of the week I want to also team up with Sarah and Fan out for Fan Friday on one topic. Let's focus on - World Cup 2014 

Now, I know not everyone is obsessed with soccer like Bradley is - because let's be honest. Bradley is a little crazy and a little out of his mind with his love for the US Men's National team and soccer in general.

But here are a few reasons why you should take some time out of your schedule over the next few weeks and watch some of the World Cup games - especially the United States Men's National Team (you can cheer for us, Melissa even though you're Canadian).  The World Cup is being held in Brazil this year, so there will be many, many good looking fans that will be showed on TV. The Stadiums are ridiculous (if they get them finished in time - a lot of them are still not finished yet and the first game is in less than a week), and the hair styles by soccer players are always comical. 

::First let the cast of Bend It Like Beckham explain the World Cup for you. Then....

::Get to know the US Men's Team a little bit better and read this

::Next, you should watch because there are at least 180 hot men that play soccer. 

::Watch because our most important player is good with kids

::Watch for this beautiful Argentinian

::Watch for this beautiful American. Oh Geoff, you have won me over with your facial hair and hipster haircut. 

::Watch for Tim Howard's sexy tattoos

::Do it for Shakira and her soccer playing, baby daddy and all the other WAGS

::Watch for these players and then check out their instagram accounts


Oh, and watch for this Derp Face by Clint Dempsey (he is American). 

Lastly, my #backthatazzup song of the week is even World Cup Theme. Check out this awesome music video / ad for the World Cup by Beats By Dre. It's sick.

Cheers to America!

ps. sorry for the link overload. I think I blacked out after looking at so many pretty soccer players.

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

I don't follow soccer so you will have to fill me in on the quick and dirty for the World Cup ;-)

Chasing Elephants said...

For a while there a had a thing for soccer dudes, so I totally don't mind watching it! ;)

Lauren said...

Can you just tweet when something good is coming up? I'm sure there will be some on in my house. I got married in June 2010 and honeymooned in Mexico so the whole damn week it was soccer everywhere. It was the only thing on TV I could mostly understand, though, so at least there's that.

Kelli @She Crab Soup said...

Your weekend plans sound awesome!

Soccer is the one sport I know nothing at all about, like zero.

Tami said...

I'm sorry but I just cannot get into world cup. EVERY GAME IS SOOOOO LONGGGG

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

I was in Italy in 2004 when Italy won the World Cup. It was the most exciting thing to be a part of. I'll never forget it!

Soccer tends to put me to sleep, so I don't watch it much.

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Bahahahaha... that is an AWESOME derp face!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

my work has been geared up for world cup since about 2 months ago LOL. there's a HUGE chart with all teams playing and slots to record winnings/losings etc. i know for a fact that the lunch area will be converted to a media room and the large screens and couch will replace the lunch table. we work in TV so duh, high def feed and huge screens will take over every floor :)

Naps outside on a gorgeous summer day are always the best kind of naps, cheers to having a great weekend!

Jess said...

I'm not a soccer fan, could be bc I know almost nothing about it. I could be on board to watch it just for the hot guys though.

OrangeMew said...

An outdoor nap in freshest air sounds so luxurious! I want to see that movie too but will probably go alone and with sunglasses so I can be hyper emotional with no one that recognizes me...

JumpingJE said...

The Dempsey Derp!!!

Allison @ Texas Mrs. said...
