1 - Um, I love the following things about this song:
a) how clean it sounds, not the lyrics of course but the singing, guitar, and air... if that makes any sense at all
b) her red lipstick. Probably when I'm 65 I'll have enough gumption and "I don't give a damn" about me to actually wear red lipstick. And in the meantime I'll just wish I could pull it off now.
c) the lyric about wiping the counters. way to my heart, I guess. sigh.
d) autumn. Autumn is in the clothes they're wearing and the leaves. I want autumn now, please.
2 - So the show that I'm making my way through right now is the fabulous White Collar. You're probably already watching it, but if you're not let me fill you in: The show is about a con-man on a sort of work release program with an FBI agent who deals with white collar crimes. You can watch it instantly on Netflix. Travis and I are both fans and probably my favorite part about it is there is no swearing, violence, or sex scenes. Really. Truly. It's also very cleverly written. Oh, and I like Mozzie. Watch the show just for Mozzie. He's the best.
3 - If you're looking for some new meals to try we had a successful week. I highly recommend:
- Pioneer Woman's Simple Hearty White Chili
- Tyler Florence's Chicken Enchiladas
- Burgers, cooked on the grill, topped with tomatoes from our garden and seasoned with Excalibur Ultimate Steak and Roast Rub. They're not paying me to say this (though they could by sending us free samples!) but their stuff is the. best. Period.
Rachael Ray's Mexican Lasagna (except I don't cut up the tortillas, I just bake it in my round Corning Ware dish.
4 - Here's some adorable pictures of my kids.
|Bennet got sent to time out. When I went in to talk with him about it he was asleep. He'd literally cried himself to sleep.|
|They're so big! And sassy.|
|Princess Teresa, dressed up by her big sister, Princess Lydia.|
5 - I got nothin'.
6 - If you need something sweet and heart-warming to read, go read this article: The Business Nine Women Kept a Secret for Three Decades. But be warned, it'll make you want to buy a pound cake!
7 - After Labor Day weekend I'm going to begin homeschool and official chores. I'm wondering if I should have some kind of chore chart and daily schedule for the kids. They can't read but it may help keep me accountable and if I use pictures and words it may be helpful for them. Do any of you have any opinions on this matter? I'd love to hear them if you do!
