Careful What You Wish

Who here likes Metallica?  Don't be shy now, raise your hand.  I'll admit, I went through a Metallic-fangirl period when I was younger.  Although they aren't my favorite band anymore (if you've read my previous posts, you should know which one is my favorite), I still enjoy listening to them every now and then.  One of my favorites is the song "King Nothing".  One part of the lyrics really stands out to me:
Careful what you wish.  Careful what you say.  Careful what you wish, you may regret it.  Careful what you wish, you just might get it.  
Or in my case, be careful what you pray for.

7 Quick Takes - Vol. 10

Already stylin'!

Here he is!!  My brand new nephew, Jonah, also know as the Little Flirt.  That's right, at only a week old, he's already good with the ladies!  I was holding him while he slept this evening, and I was trying to slowly coax him awake so he could eat.  He started streeeetching and yaaaaawning and opening his eyes into little slits, so I thought I was making progress.  Then, he fell back asleep!  I called him a tease, and he gave this impudent little half-smile. Such a Little Flirt he is, trying to win his auntie over.

Thanks to all who prayed for my sister to have a good labor!  It's much appreciated.

GOTR Weekend

Remember how I said I love the band Mumford and Sons?  Guess what I got to do this last weekend:  I went to see them in concert!  Specifically, I went to the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in the little town of Guthrie, Oklahoma.

For those who don't know, Mumford and Sons have their own label called "Gentlemen of the Road," and last summer and this they have hosted a series of weekend music festivals, which they call Stopovers, in small towns that don't normally get concert traffic.  They invited about a dozen of their favorite bands to come out and perform on Friday and Saturday.

7 Quick Takes - Vol. 9

I changed my blog background.  Do you like it?  I decided I wanted something a little more personal and pertinent than the generic picture that came with the template, soooooo I took a picture of my bookshelf and used that.  Ta da!  If your eyesight is good enough to read the titles, you will be privy to some of the actual books in my library.  See any of your favorites on there?
