1 - Ahhhh - the bass line! This song was on the radio this afternoon and the kids just didn't understand that I needed them to not talk to me about tornadoes while we drove with the windows down and listened to music from my childhood.
2 - Looking up this song on YouTube led to a rabbit hole of 90's music. Remember Butthole Surfers' song Pepper? What about Cannonball by The Breeders? Nada Surf's Popular? And, oh man! Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus?! Alien Ant Farm? Sum41?! And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly for a white guy.
3 - Speaking of music and my favorite radio station, WWCT has a little guest gig on Fridays wherein a fan comes in and gets to pretend to co-host the lunch hour. To do it you submit your name and 6 favorite songs, which they will play while you're there. I submitted Shadow Stabbing by Cake, When the Man Comes Round by Johnny Cash, Shake It Out by Florence and the Machine, Rivers and Roads by The Head and the Heart, and Something in the Water by Brooke Frasier, and Devil Town by Bright Eyes.
What six songs would you submit? What are six of your favorite songs?
4 - I really loved the Body Confidence Tips post from Girl With Curves. Her tip #6 really spoke to me; it's something I've noticed in my own life. I wish I looked like this:
May 2004, size 10 and a perfectly healthy BMI.
Instead of this:
I'm pregnant in this picture, I'm not pregnant now, but there's really not much of a difference. Sad.
One thing I've learned from being overweight, though, is to do #6. When I was thin I didn't have the confidence to wear lipstick or dangly earrings or bold colors. But now doing those things makes me happy so I do them and I think I look better because of it.
5 - In the coming weeks I will be packing, moving, unpacking, traveling for weddings and speaking engagements, and working on a whole lotta other stuff. I asked some friends if they would help me keep my blog afloat and I am so thrilled to say there is all kinds of good posts comin' our way, faithful readers! Every time you see this you'll know it's time for an awesome new guest post. First one is Monday, with Britt talking about when she worked at the White House.
6 - L told me not to do the yellow. She was right.
7 - On a final note: Resa officially turned 2 yesterday. Oh how I love that little girl!
