Seven Quick Takes (vol.3)

I am really loving these random Fridays! I feel like I have so many things to tell you but can’t possible devote an entire post to each of them. So here again, for your reading displeasure…


Remember when I told you what bands I can’t stand? (Coldplay, Nickleback, Shania Twain, and Beyonce 90% of the time) Well the other day, Stephen wanted to test out the CD and DVD player on my new laptop. He found his CD case and started flipping through. He ran into the kitchen laughing and showed me that he has a Coldplay, Nickleback, and Shania Twain CD. Not kidding.

I really wish I had about 4 free days in a row (or some spare cash) so I could paint my living room. It’s covered in wood paneling and I’m thinking there will be some time consuming prep work. I’d really love to hire someone so that the wall could be retextured. But I fear that they’ll charge me an amount that will interfere with my need to eat.

A couple of my girlfriends and I are planning a bridal shower for one of our friends. Do you have any fun game ideas? They are going to be playing the quiz/what-do-you-know-about-your-fiance game at another shower. Any unique ideas?

Sara Lee Everything Bagels are fabulous. Toasted and slathered with cream cheese. Seriously. Awesome.

Stephen has plans this evening which means I have the house to myself. I’m going to do my best to get caught up on laundry and somehow stimulate my creativity enough to attempt writing again. I guess I should stop and restock my M&M supply. Either that, or I’m going to go to my parent’s house and watch last week’s Design Star on their DVR. We’ll see how the work day goes today and what sort of mood I’m in!

It’s quite possible that Meryl Streep is the greatest actress that has ever walked the planet. If you disagree, I’d love to hear who you think is better. You’ll be wrong, but I’ll gladly listen to your reasoning. And if anyone mentions Angelina Jolie, you will be banned from this blog. Until forever.

When I was a little girl, the highlight of my summer was to ride my bike to Eckerd Drug and spend every penny of my allowance (minus 10% for tithing and 10% for savings, yeah yeah) on random crap. My favorites were always nail polish (which I then took home and poured little bits of random colors into an empty nail polish bottle to create my very own color), Laffy Taffy, fake nails, candy that oozed from tubes, and candy necklaces. I also owned 90% of the collection of imitation perfumes. You know those tiny aerosol cans that say “If You Like Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflowers, You’ll Love This!”

Kind of a round-about way of getting to the point. That’s what I’m all about. I am no friend of brevity.

I told you that there was a surprise in store for Monday. Tomorrow my Blog Friend 4 Ever and I are spending the entire day cooking and freezing meals. Monday we will guest post on each other’s blogs. Surprise! If You Like Chelsea, You’ll Love Lauren. This is, of course, not to imply that she is some sort of cheap knock off that is bad for the environment. It’s to say that you may think you like me, but that’s only because you haven’t experienced her. You’ll love her.

I hope you enjoy whatever she has to offer. You can head on over to her blog to read whatever I have to offer. Is it inappropriate to ask someone to guest blog for my guest blog post? Yeah probably. It hurts my brain to force creativity…
Have a great weekend!
