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 #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 …

Conversation #204: My Jesus...

Oh Facebook and social media of all kinds...we have a love hate/relationship.  Lately, these days, I feel it is more hate only because I allow myself to be depressed by things I see.  I recently told someone the other day that I had lost faith in humanity, and then it hit me, that is exactly where I should be.  We are a fallen people in a fallen world, and I should have NO faith in humanity.  Why did that take me 30 years to figure out?

So there has been a lot of political/social stuff swirling around, and division among Christians, and I hate it.  Like I said, I have no faith in humanity and realizing that was a good reminder it should ALL be in the Lord.  Even though there are definitely things going on in this world that reject the truth of the Gospel, Jesus, the thing that scares me the most these days is the phrase I alluded to in the title: "my Jesus wouldn't believe this" or "I can't follow a God that would say that" or "I just don't believe…
