I recently have started looking to collect fun 8×10 vertical prints for a clipboard photo wall in my apartment. Back before Valentine’s Day, I saw this adorable card from Whitley Gaffney of Letterquette, and have asked her to make me a print of it (which I am so excited to debut). Friday Night Lights was one of those programs that really has stuck with me, and many other fans that I know of the show. Occasionally, I would be driving in the car with my mother, and she would let out a sigh and say “I just hope that Tim Riggins worked everything out for himself.” We are that obsessed.
*My mother has issued a correction: although Tim’s series of tough situations gave her pause, it was Vince that she was really worried about.
I have said on multiple occasions that if I could have dinner with someone dead, alive, or fictional, it would be Tami Taylor. Although the show has been off the air for three years now, Tami Taylor and her words of infinite wisdom do not ring any less true. Although her advice was not always gentile (truth bombs galore), it was helpful and true, and often what the recipient needed to hear.
So although this is not a typical post for me, I wanted to share some favorite tidbits of Tami Taylor wisdom with you today.
Obviously, this also goes without saying, but Tami Taylor is a hair GODDESS. I always walk with a skip in my step when I have a TT blow out.
“There’s no weakness in forgiveness.”
“Well, you’re gonna win or you’re gonna lose. Either way the sun’s still gonna come up tomorrow morning.”
“I think you just keep doing what you’re doing, Coach. Take it one day at a time.”
“The big deal is, that it’s part of my job to make sure that you don’t grow up stupid. It’s bad for the world.”
“I think it’s good you’re questioning your faith, I just want you to have faith … something that you can hold on to, when I can’t hold on to you.”
“You never know what’s going on with somebody, sweetie. Can’t take it personally.”
“I would tell her to think about her life. Think about what’s important to her and what she wants. And I would support every decision she made.”
“I’m right 100% of the time. You can ask my husband.”
Tami also understood the importance of his and hers closets and not wearing your hat at the table. Two very important life lessons.
Did I mention she was married to this?
