five awesome things


(Really, all-caps and all.)

It's a great day here, and so many things are going on. Allow me to share:

~ My very own playlist o' love is being featured at Today's Mama. Check it out and tell me what you think of my selections. Would you include any of the same on your own personal playlist? Thanks, Carina, for asking me to contribute!

~ I am a New Sassy!

Sassy Scoops is a group of women who are passionate about supporting local businesses. We patronize (as in, partake of & support, not speak to condescendingly) local business and services, and then review different aspects of our experience. There are also fun giveaways involved, so be sure to keep an eye out!

I'm not the only New Sassy -- Jen Hadfield of the blog tatertots & jello is also joining the crew.

Wish you could be a New Sassy too? It seems to be your lucky day. There's a contest to find a third New Sassy (given name need not be Jennifer to apply).

It's like they know me. No, it's like they know me and love me and want to make the world a better place, one great-smelling area at a time. #WorldPeace

~ Can you spare ten minutes? Just ten? Because remember when I shared with you the video for OK Go's White Knuckles? Since then, my family has become a wee-bit obsessed with the song and its video and even a homemade version of that video using stuffed animals. My new favorite, however, is the behind-the-scenes of the actual take they used for the video (remember, it's all done in one shot -- they did it over 130 times and chose take #72 as the one to use). If you don't have a full ten minutes, at least watch beginning at 4:53 until 10:30:

~ At the end of last calendar year, as I was contemplating what to do with my blog for the upcoming (now current) year, I had a thought that I should do a series of Sunday Mormon posts. Really, I did. And then . . . well, and then a friend had the same thought and acted on it, and my desire to not seem like a copycat won out over my desire to act on my idea. But as it happens, the thought to post on more Mormon stuff will not leave my mind, and I know this means that I am to act. I don't know that it will always be on Sundays. But I know that I will be posting about my faith more. If you've got any questions (a post in and of itself), please send them my way.

And those are my five awesome things.

What are YOUR five awesome things?

Do you think it would help me be a sassy if my name is Jennifer?? I think that would be so fun...

I need to try that febreeze stuff 'cause with two boys we sometimes have some not so nice odors around here.

Love your music choices!

Those are five great things! My five fabulous things today were:

1. Starting my project to recover and paint my small sofa.
2. Finally getting delivery of our new company car that will house our family of six.
3. My weekly food shop came in under budget.
4. My husband finished work earlier that usual.
5. I just remembered I have ice cream in freezer!
