Sunday Funday Believes in Beyoncé and True Love

Well, well, well. Look at you, you gorgeous perfect human-ish creature! Welcome to your week. Here, I made some hot chocolate for us, so I hope you’ll sit with me for a second and enjoy these links. It’s a pretty good batch, I’ve gotta’ say.

Bride Pulls a Full Beyoncé to Put Her Love on Top

This will make you smile and cheer and probably spill your drink on yourself. It’s that good. I mean, like, wow. I don’t even really like weddings or marriage stories or romance generally or whatever and this totally killed me. I’m not OK. In a good way. Prepare to get your whole life.

Janessa Cox surprised her wife at their wedding reception with a three-part mash-up fully choreographed dance to Beyoncé’s “Diva,” “Upgrade My Love,” and “Love on Top” to symbolize the story of their relationship and also to make us all scream with unbridled joy. Her wife, Lanaya’s face, OMG. The wedding videographer camera work on the slow opening. The fact that when I say she choreographed a number, I mean she hired professional dancers and an award-winning choreographer (who has actually worked with Beyoncé) and practiced for three months. LOVE IS NOT A LIE!

We Are All The Rebel Cow

She escaped her pen and her fate at the slaughterhouse and this “reddish brown cow” joined a herd of wild bison, where she’s been finding food, traveling, and seems to be doing quite fine thanks much. This cow is defying both man and nature and she’s doing it for herself. Let her be an inspiration to us all. Amen.

  1. This is a wonderful list of stuff! I have the Our Bible app installed on my phone. It’s interesting so far. I’m kind of torn about the whole Christianity…thing. I hope this helps.

    • In the meantime, there’s a children’s chapter book from a couple years ago that’s based on another cow escapee called “Audrey (cow)” and it’s delightful.

  2. Well I also don’t always go for wedding/romance stuff but I believed you and watched that first video and now I’m crying sooooooo THANK YOU <3

    • BELIEVE! It’s so good!!! I’ve watched it three times just to remember that all in this world is not horrible. I love when the couple dances together at the end and you can tell they just love each other SO MUCH and then the wedding guests come onto the floor and you see all these people and (presumably) family celebrating them and it’s too much for my cold stone heart!

  3. Wow, that wedding video is incredible and definitely confirms that love is not a lie. I bet Beyoncé sent them flowers.
