You can tell for yourself as she’s hosting Jen Fulwiler’s 7 Quick Takes–the weekly linkup about 7 quick things in your life for the week. Jen’s busy blowing up the airways interviewing Jim Gaffigan’s wife, Jeanie. Who’s also hilarious.
1. I’m Not Funny
I am not hilarious. At all. In fact, when my brother was visiting the last weekend, I kept thinking, If only I had something really funny to say. I love him so much and wanted to be as witty as my older sister Molly who wasn’t here. Instead my baby burped up in my open praising mouth while I held him overhead. So there you have it.
2. Blessed is She
I’m editing and writing for this daily devotional. If you’re a woman, into scripture, and maybe even Catholic (though I think my non-Catholic friends who like the Bible would enjoy this, too), I hope you’ve subscribed (free, duh) to Blessed is She to get an email everyday.
Really excitingly, Jenna, the brains behind it all, has created this journal for Advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas. All proceeds of sales go to fund our beautiful site and the printing of the journals. You gotta get one.
3. Working from Home.
Olivia wrote a really great article about how she’s balancing work/life balance as a work at home mom. I am NOT working as much as she is, but trying to find my own balance. Lately it’s been way too many late nights and that, combined with teething baby, means I’m not as productive but also running on fumes. The kids are my first priority during the day, and I need to figure out how to work at night without killing myself. Loved the wisdom from her!
4. Abbots & Beer.
We’re hosting a meet & greet for an Abbot from a monastery in Italy in a few weeks. I may have been carried away with the invite list. We’ll see how many people the house can hold in the winter without the patio on the backyard or Breeze Way. Tight quarters make for more fun listening to him talk and drinking their signature beer, right??? Wish us luck.
5. Belgian Chocolate.
I ate my way through much of a box of Belgian chocolates my sister sent my mom from Belgium when sh was there presenting at a conference. Let’s just say the Belgians do it right. And I have a massive sugar detox in my future. Britt blogged how the Whole 30 diet affected her. I can’t do the whole thing as a nursing mom, but I can try #nosugar30 again!!!!!!!!
6. Jump at the Sun.
You know Scythian, right? The handsome, rugged, amazingly talented musicians? They’re good family friends and when their latest album came out, we got an early download. Gotta tell you, SuperBoy & SweetPea rock out to it EVERY SINGLE DAY. Right now, as I fast type this out, SuperBoy is singing All you New York girls, can you dance the polka?? Download, y’all.
You guys have blown me away with your comments and linkups for my weekly meal planning post that airs Saturdays. I can safely say my husband thanks you supremely and we are eating SO MUCH more interestingly. Keep it coming, tomorrow morning!!!
Hop to Kelly for the link up, peeps.
