1 - This song is a tribute to what I had wanted to happen.
2 - I am on Pinterest. Are you? It's true what everyone says about - a great way to have hours of your life sucked away from you. But it did teach me about the sock bun.
I look cute with a sock bun. Not gonna lie.
3 - It's also how I learned how to do a simple Gibson Tuck.
I was hoping I'd look really cute with my hair like this. But I got 0 compliments and my husband told me I looked like an AC. (That's Apostolic Christian. I was told once, by an AC, that there are more AC churches in Central Illinois than in the rest of the world combined. So you may not know what an AC is. Think strict Baptist meets strict Mennonite. They're good people. The women wear skirts, and always have their hair up with a little croqueted covering.) It's not an insult to be told I look AC, but I would have preferred "pretty", "classy", or even "nice".
4 - Of course I was not trying to look like an AC. I was a little more inspired by this:
It is true. The void in my life created once I finished Lost has now been filled by Downton Abbey. Simply put: I am in love.
5 - Here's a little post I wrote over at the Behold blog. It's all about how I got involved with Behold in the first place. Check it out!
6 - There is a youtube video all over the place called "I hate religion, but love Jesus". It's really well done and you may have seen it. If you have, I encourage you to read this commentary, written by Marc Barnes.
7 - We still have our Christmas lights on the front porch and I still turn them on. Especially now that there's snow I like having them glowing in the night.
Winter is so dark and I love coming home to a dark street with our cheery lights welcoming me. But I do promise to you all that they won't stay up all year long.
