drive: not really a movie review

October 5, 2011

This past weekend my husband and I went on an Actual Date to the movies, just the two of us. When deciding what to see, we went strictly by the description on my Flixster app, since neither of us get out enough to have heard anything about the current movies out. We chose to see Drive, with Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. It seemed like it’d be a fun action flick, had an 8.4 rating on, and over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Sounds promising, right? The reason this isn’t really a movie review is because I don’t deny that it was very well made, and I’m sure many people will love it and even rave about it. (My brother,…

Seven Things

September 14, 2011

I thought it was about time for a non-baby post, and in an effort to distract myself from the fact that my maternity leave is rapidly coming to a close, here are some Things. 7 people I’d like to meet: via >Emily Henderson – the HGTV host, whose style I love and who seems totally cool. >Christy Nockels – an amazing singer and worship leader, and someone I’ve always admired. >Kristin Chenoweth – the singer and actress who I’ve had a girl-crush on ever since I saw her on Broadway. >Derek Webb & Sandra McCracken – a husband and wife, both musicians I love, and even though I’ve technically met Derek I’m convinced that my husband and I could be…

Ten On Tuesday: Randomness

June 14, 2011

As usual, thanks to Chelsea for hosting! Is it just me, or are the weeks getting longer and longer? I can’t believe it’s only Tuesday. 1. How do you pronounce the word aunt? Does your pronunciation rhyme with ‘haunt’ or ‘can’t’? Rhymes with ‘can’t,’ because I’m from Texas. 2. Do most of the people in your life know you blog? Or are you partially or totally anonymous? Yes, mostly. I don’t hide my blog from anyone but I don’t announce it either, so the people I work with probably don’t know about it. I’m completely unanonymous, and just try to use discretion regarding what I post. 3. When you grocery shop, do you prefer to bag your own groceries or do…

Question of the Week: My iPhone

March 21, 2011

Welcome to the question of the week, where I put up a poll, hopefully on Monday, about any random thing, and you answer! Sound good? Okay, so today I need advice about a fairly trivial matter. I’ve been thinking about what to do about my iPhone, and I just can’t make a decision. I have a 3G which is over 2 years old that is running the new software and is therefore veeerrrrryyyyy slllloooooowwww. It is driving me crazy. I am due for an upgrade so I don’t have to pay that fee, and I don’t care about signing a new 2-year contract. However, we are trying really hard to save money. I’d love to upgrade to the iPhone 4,…
