Conversation #31: Summer Fun Song of the Week

I keep thinking I’ll be able to get back to regular posting, but this week my phone decided to break so I spent too many evenings at the Sprint store.  Also, one of my best friends had her first baby girl so we had to go see her at the hospital.  She is beautiful!!!

Even though summer weather will be around here for a bit longer (I hope it is only a bit), school starts on Monday here so this will be the last “summer” fun song.  However, I LOVE music so I plan to share my song of the week depending on my mood, the season, whatever!

My FAVORITE song this summer has been “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train.  I don’t know why, but the first time I heard it, I was hooked!  I even made it my phone ringer because I’m in love.  In fact, Train just released their next single “If It’s Love,” and I love it too!  Train is definitely on my love list these days.  I actually really want to see them in concert.  So for your listening pleasure, I give you two Train songs, one being my favorite summer song of 2010.  It’s happy, fun, poppy, and I love it!  (Weird thing, I still think about summer events from high school when I hear Train’s song “Drops of Jupiter.”  It is such a different sound to me than their new stuff)

Here is “Hey, Soul Sister” in acoustic because I think it really shows off their talent!

Happy Summer of 2010!

FUN! They performed in Rockefeller Center at the Today Show when I was in NYC! We went to go listen. And of course, they played Soul Sister!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

Conversation #205: About Me


I have no idea how often I will escape to this place, but since I recently added this ol' blog address to my Instagram Profile, I thought maybe I should dust her off and welcome any new readers.

I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head CONSTANTLY that maybe this would be a good spot again to release them, and keep me from online shopping too much during my lunch break ;)  I hear a faint AMEN from my husband.

Anyway, the title of my blog may lead people to make snap judgments about me or my beliefs, which is unfortunate, but also the society we live in at the moment.  First, it created a sort of catchy blog name, and I liked it.  And, yes, I am a conservative, but that label has sooooo many different meanings depending on what media outlet you last listened to so I thought maybe I would use this post to re-introduce myself to old friends and share a bit about how I have grown in the last few years.

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
