iTunes, Zombies, and 27 weeks: 7QT

1 - Let's start things off with a little Matt Maher, shall we? I love me some Matt Maher music and this song is a really powerful one for me. It's true that I'm a sucker for a good crescendo-ing bridge but this song is more than that, too.

2 - So the big news at my house is that The Visitation Project is now available on iTunes. This is kinda crazy to me because... it's iTunes, which is like legit and it's where people go for podcasts and now I'm there with Heather and Rebecca.  You can search for us and everything! Isn't that crazy? Here's what we look like when you find us:

3 - In other news around the house, we are getting really pumped because Marie Miller is coming to town!  She'll be performing at a couple of local schools and hold a family friendly concert in the evening. I know I have some local readers so if you're in the area and want to come, well you should because I promise you she is an amazing performer.

4 - So there's a couple of things I would love to see, one of them in theatres now and others coming soon enough.
The Martian
Sherlock Special
Mockingjay Part 2
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

What's looking good to you? Anything I'm missing on this list?

5 - And speaking of zombies, Travis and I are finishing up the latest season of The Walking Dead on Netflix. (Like literally, I'm watching the season finale as I type) I've always followed Cari's recap posts on the current season for two reasons:
#1 so I stay up to date on what's happening.
#2 I need all the surprises taken away so I don't have nightmares.
Don't you just love it when Morgan says, "Because all life is precious, Daryl." Love.

6 - I'm 27 weeks pregnant, you guys. Twenty-seven weeks. That's almost 30 weeks, and 30 weeks is almost 40 weeks, and 40 weeks is baby-birthing time. This kind of math is making me nervous.

7 - In case you didn't know, Kelly has some great stuff going on to celebrate Seven Quick Takes. There's a few gift packages you could win (and one of them includes a Basic blog consultation from me). Since Kelly is the one who is keeping this 7QT party going do stop on over and give her some love: comment, link-up, you know. :)


  1. Morgan is where it's At. Can't wait to see him developed in this season

  2. Haha, I'm 26-weeks and have been doing the exact same math. We had a small bump two weeks ago so the road ahead looks really long and short all at the same time. How are you feeling? Continued prayers for you and your sweet :)

  3. My son was born at 27 weeks, and while I very much hope to be pregnant for far longer at some point, it's currently my favorite gestational week. The third trimester is so close, you must be able to taste it! If I lived in Peoria, we would totally need to meet up at the movie theater, because all those upcoming flicks look great.

  4. I'm looking forward to Mockingjay but because we'll have an infant when it comes out, I'll probably have to wait until it comes out on DVD and that makes me so sad. I rarely find movies I want to pay for in the theaters. I think it's the years I worked at a movie theater and saw everything for free that have ruined the movies for me! After that, paying just seems awful.

    I've not heard of Marie Miller until just this week. I guess I have some googling to do.

  5. I'm so excited for the Sherlock special! But I never watch it ON Christmas so trying to avoid spoilers between the time it airs and when I get to watch it is always stressful. ;)

  6. Dude. Morgan in the season opener of TWD? JUST WAIT FOR MY RECAP!

  7. I hear you on that baby timeline. I'm over here like, "We're 21w4d, which is past halfway, which means we're closer to the end then the beginning, which means...BABY IS COMING!" Haha. I'm sure time will slow as we get bigger and more uncomfortable!
