What’s Making Me Happy This Week 11/27/12

I’ve been trying to do one of these posts every other week, so here’s the third “in a row”! Maybe I’ll get some format, but for now it remains random… Things that were great about Thanksgiving week – Getting a haircut!  Always feels great! Choir – getting ready for some upcoming gigs! FOUR days in… Continue reading What’s Making Me Happy This Week 11/27/12

Bruuuuuuuce!

I woke up this morning thinking of the Bruce Springsteen concert, which was one week ago tonight! We bought our tickets in August, so it has been something we have been anticipating for quite some time. (Anticipation of great things is so awesome!) We began our adventure at the House of Coates Bar where we… Continue reading Bruuuuuuuce!

It’s almost over…

Remember, Remember

How have I never heard this poem before?  My brother and my aunt have their birthday on the Fifth of November, so it’s a day that has been celebrated in my household as long as I have been around.  So how have I never heard this poem until this year?  One of the benefits of… Continue reading Remember, Remember

Film Friday Footnotes

So far this fall I have seen some great movies, in the theatre and at home!  Here’s a quick roundup: Trouble with the Curve (with Kristine for her birthday) –  Grumpy old Clint Eastwood, successful and driven Amy Adams, the lovable friend John Goodman and the cuter-than-cute Justin Timberlake.  There’s just something about baseball movies… Continue reading Film Friday Footnotes
