Dear Best Friend,

Thanks for the ear muffs.  They're swell.

Take A Listen.

I found this song the other day when I tried to google Bella's Lullaby (sorry about the Twilight reference).  I hadn't seen the movie yet, but just finished the book, and was curious to see what the lullaby sounds like.  Turns out this video isn't the actual lullaby, but there seem to be many many people who made videos on Youtube with Twilight clips accompanying the song.  It's such a lovely tune, and I am actually glad it is not from the movie, so I can have it played in my wedding someday.

"Although there may be 
nothing new under the sun, 
what is old is new to us 
and so rich and astonishing 
that we never tire of it.
If we do tire of it, 
if we lose our curiosity, 
we have lost something 
of infinite value, 
because to a high degree 
it is curiosity that gives 
meaning and savour to life."
-- Robertson Davies

Chicago Snapshot

This guy is so precious to me.

Yesterday we drove around to some areas outside of Chicago.  We ended up near the neighborhood where Home Alone took place so decided to track down the actual house.  It was fun seeing it, and isn't it pretty?

To Chicago

I am off to Chicago for the weekend, so I figure a little Sufjan is appropriate. 
I am so ready to be on that plane right now.

Stellar Tee.


As a child I wrote a letter to Hale-Bopp when it left.  
I also dreamt with total seriousness that I would be
the first woman to be married on the moon.
This tee is stellar.
(Pun intended.)

Work Today

My next statement may make some of you love me and some of you hate me.  Last week I began reading Twilight.  I know, I know.  I have not understood the hype of it, rolled my eyes when my dearest friends obsess over it, and changed the channel when the movie previews come on.  And then my co-worker insisted I give it a try and brought the book in for me.  

So here I am on page 192.  I admit it is an interesting read, and I find myself thinking about the plotline throughout the day more than I care to admit.  However, I may not be a huge Edward fan.  It's not necessarily the vampire part that turns me off; I'm all for a good sci-fi.  He just doesn't seem my type I guess - vampire or not.  He seems more like the needy, obsessive, has-to-have-his-way kind of boyfriend.  But I can't make my opinion official until I have at least finished book #1, so that's all I will say for now.  But let me just ask if there are any readers out there who are not Team Edward?  (I can't believe I just said that.)  Okay, enough about that.

Oh, and also that we just got this in at work to give away on our web site.  The girls went wild.

Tumbling Towers

When was the last time you played Jenga?  Welp, it was Saturday for me.

Okay, so we didn't actually play the game.  
We just played with the blocks.  It was fun.

My sister showed up in my inbox this morning with this:

So I responded with this:

Writing notes on a notepad, taking a picture, and e-mailing it is so much better than a text message, although it's a bit of a pain to write backwards.  I don't know how her's turned out so well.  Mine obviously needs some work.

Whatever your beliefs, 'tis the season to be jolly.  
Happy December everyone!!
