7 Quick Takes

It's that time again: 7 Quick Takes with Jen + all.

For some reason, I have not been "into music lately. Actually, for like 4 years. I don't know if it's because there is so much noise in my house already that I just can't do that to myself, or if I'm just going through a phase. Regardless, it's highly unusually for me to put on music. Ever. Even in the car. I've never been able to have a conversation with someone while music was playing, so maybe my brain just can't handle some many inputs at once. But the other day Ben put on a Pandora station and I found myself enjoying the music for once. One of my favorite songs came on and I just have to share it (the video might make you dizzy, but it's worth it):

MuteMath "Spotlight"

I actually do get to listen to music some days because Avie loves to sing lately. She will literally sing for 5 minutes about all the things. 

At the end she says, "My tired." Which means "I'm tired" (as if you couldn't wrap your head around that one). It's what she says anytime she doesn't want to do what I'm asking of her. 

I'm trying really hard to try and find ways to make a few thousand bucks easily. I want to take a fun vacation. I mean sure. We actually don't have a couch or a dining table yet for our future rental. But I think a Hawaiian vacation would relax us enough to where, that would just not matter. Right!? I feel like I will always be this way. I am constantly seeing how much certain things cost and planning vacations. Truly. Such a twisted hobby. And yet, I love it. I will never stop. If only we could afford all the vacations I plan. 

Pregnant women should not go to the grocery store. For any reason. Okay, maybe just me. It's like I can't control what I'm putting in the cart. I see something and think, "Mmm, that sounds good." Today I bought "Zesty Lemon Sorbet" and "Mini Mint Frosted Chocolate Cookies". Wt? There's no stopping me. Ben will probably read this and forbid me from going to the store alone. I need an intervention. 

Have you seen "Once Upon A Time" on ABC? If not, you must. It has the guy from "The Full Monty" movie in it. Yep.

I got it. I know how I can fuel my vacation obsession: be a rapper. Like, with really poignant raps. And be cool and outspoken like M.I.A:
M.I.A. "Paper Planes"


  1. Haha! I share your hobby, it is sickening! I always have an entire agenda for something I am dreaming of, and am always plotting different ways of earning x amount of dollars. Never happened. That's ok, there is a certain amount of satisfaction in the dreaming!

    Love coming to your blog and seeing your cute little girls in the top photo, my daughter has that same dress and wears it constantly, although it is up to her mid thigh now!

    1. There is satisfaction in the dreaming! That must be why I keep doing it.

      And thank you! If they still had those dresses, I'm sure they'd be booty-skimming by now. : )

  2. I have two higher degrees in music and all I want is quiet! I think it's because the kids make so much noise!
