Top Five Friday : April 1 Edition

Happy Friday, Happy April, Happy Closing Day!

It sure is going to be a packed day today (you can follow along on snapchat- my name is gretchxo), so my Friday post is going to be light-hearted and fun.  I'm going to share some of my favorite April Fools Pranks from the past few years, thoughts on my current TV shows, and some songs of the week.  I hope you have a great weekend, and remember to not believe everything you're told today! :)


Linking up with MarCynthia and Court 

Favorite April Fools Pranks

This post just makes me really happy.  Lots of silly and easy prank ideas, and some gifs that made me laugh out loud.


Reddit has some of my favorite April Fools pranks.  Every year I'm excited to see what they come up with, and find it funny how seriously people take their pranks.  Last year featured "the button" which was simultaneously hilarious and scary!



Of course Google takes the top spot for Internet pranks.  There's even a wikipedia page full of all the jokes they've played throughout the years.


Remember Google Maps Pacman?  Good times.  Wonder what they will come up with this year?!


Emily has one of my favorite blogs, and every year she has a clever April Fools prank.  They're always something similar to her regular posts, just slightly off.  It usually takes me till the end of the post to realize it's a joke!


TV Shows

The Voice
We're getting to the good stuff- the blind auditions are over and we're nearing the live shows!  I was really excited to see Miley as the lead mentor during the Knock-out rounds.  I've always been a huge fan of hers and think she's incredibly talented.  I'm so happy to see that she's calming down and being more serious about her career and life (hopefully!).  She and Alicia Keys were also just announced as the two new coaches for next season, so I'm REALLY excited to see that!


Dancing With the Stars
So far this season, there have been some great dances and some leaders already emerging!  I'm really loving Wayna (and just want to be his friend, he seems so fun!) and Paige.  On the other end, I'm sad to see how much Mischa is struggling.  I feel like if I were to ever go on a dancing show, that's exactly how I would look so I can (almost) feel her pain.  Every time someone talks to her she's on the verge of tears, so it's sad to see that she's not enjoying the show at all.

American Idol
I can't believe that the final season is almost over! This has been such an amazing season to watch, and this might be the first time in any show's history that my favorite four singers from the beginning are still in it.  Usually one of my favorites is voted off early on, and one or two contestants that I don't like are left in the finals.  Not this year!  I'm so in love with all four talented singers and would be fine with any of them winning (but really, no one is going to beat La'Porsha)

  2. I'm not a big fan of practical jokes. I played one on my sister at Christmas and it did not go over well at all. It was a good reminder that they can be kind of mean... what can I say? We are very sensitive in our family.

  3. My sister Tracey is a teacher and she always does funny stuff. She taped up my van last year, covering it in flourescent tape so I had to drive the kids to school like that. She brings chocolate covered cotton balls to school for the teachers in the staff room. Such a shit disturber!

    1. This year we actually did have snow! My mom's favorite joke was telling me I missed my alarm and would be late for school.

  5. My friends always think up some unique April Fool's pranks for Facebook every year. I used to be a huge prankster, but I got a little out of hand with it. Now, I try to think along the lines of pranks that don't hurt anyone and make them laugh instead.

  7. Practical jokes are HUGE in my family - we all play them on one another. When we were younger, my brother would always tell me something that happened SO convincingly that I would then tell other people. Too bad he had made it up!

  10. Reading all your favorite music always makes me feel old because I never know who they are! I've had the same 15 songs on my MP3 player that I've had for the past 4 years, and most of them are songs from when I took Zumba classes. I keep telling myself to get more music but never do.

  11. Wait what is the story behind the Reddit button? I'm so intrigued! Haha

    1. All they said was if the button timer gets to 0 something would happen. If you push the button you add time on to it. I'm not sure if it ever got to 0!

  12. I can never play any April Fools pranks even though I'm the queen of surprises, haha. I always feel too mean!

  13. The PacMan map was AWESOME! I don't play any pranks. I never even think about it being April Fools Day really, so I guess that probably makes me an easy target.
