7 Quick Takes
1 - Saw this. Loved it. Wanted to share it. (Watch 'em dance - it's so great.)
You also have the option of watching Lennon and Maisy sing Hey Ho from this week's episode of Nashville. It's just as good as The Lumineers. Seriously.
2 - You know what's awesome? When you have all kinds of kids throwing up all over. Awesome.
3 - I'm in a local book club with some other women. Right now we're reading Love and Respect by Emmerson Eggerichs. I'm only through chapter 5 but I find it really interesting. The bottom line is that God asks wives to unconditionally respect their husbands and for husbands to unconditionally love their wives. I have heard of several people whom I know personally whose marriages have greatly benefited from the book. Travis and I have a good marriage and (thanks be to God) were already doing a lot of what the author suggests, but I have still picked up some good suggestions and reminders. Anyone read it?
4 - Anyone else watch Grimm? I love that show. It's a cop show meets the best of Once Upon a Time. Also, it has a fantastic character named Monroe. He's the best friend, a little bit of a nerd, gets also the best lines, and is also a werewolf. You know - normal stuff. Anyways, if you're looking for a new show to check out I suggest Grimm - you can catch episodes on Hulu.
5 - Travis could tell I was having a stressful day and so he called me while I was out by myself and told me he had just moved $200 to the checking account and I could spend it however I wanted or needed. I bought some of this and some of that and the makings of a new outfit that looks like this
6 - I also spent some cash on the kids, getting them new swimsuits for the summer. I was really disappointed at how difficult it was to buy a swimsuit for my almost 5 year old girl. First, I have nothing against two piece suits, in fact I prefer them for L because it makes potty breaks so much easier. However I want a tankini, not a bikini. And I especially don't want a suit like this
7 - Aaaaaaand, that's all I've got! Congrats to Hallie! Best wishes to Jen! (And thanks for hosting like always!) Good night to everyone else!
