award.

our house is noisy.
like even when taylor and jason aren't here, it's still noisy....
and so is my brain.
so i wear headphones when i sit on the floor and study.
doesn't sound very comfortable does it?
but this set up is what works for me.... for now....
so here i am, with some loud "chuggington" cartoon on,
and earphones in....
blaring Ingrid Michaelson.
i like Ingrid Michaelson.
i saw her at the house of blues a few years ago.
she somehow gets me to focus on what i'm reading....
so EVERYTIME i study, i'm listening to ingrid in my ears...
her music is soothing, and mostly uplifting....
(sidenote: pre-jason, i used to LOVE a clean house ((thanks to my housekeeper at the time)), with candles burning, peace and "ingrid" via surround sound.... this made me VERY happy!!!!! i had a housekeeper that came once every 2 weeks! it was so nice!)
okay back to reality....
so ingrid in my ear, rather than via surround sound, isn't quite the same, but it brings up those same amazing feelings....
(so much so, that i dance while i study.... and turned around the other day to find jason videotaping me and talking into the camera.... i was SOOOO embarrassed!)
back to those amazing feelings....
empowering.
powerful.
wonderful.
happy.
blessed feelings
of gratitude....

speaking of gratitude, i'd like to thank Laurnie over at "Some Whine w/ Cheese" for this one-of-a-kind award.... (i LOVE the red color!!!!)
as everyone else is getting married, or pregnant... she's not.... she's just blogging.... about everything and she is WONDERFUL! =)
note* she also has more than one blog. i'd check them both out!!
(and join THE NOTEBOOK JOURNEY! there are only 7 spots left!!!)

congrats and funny you should say that thing about everyone getting married or pregs. for us it's everyone is getting pregs - i feel kinda left out, maybe i need to check out her blog. i think it's one of the 1500 i follow.

Love Ingred! I saw her a couple years ago and she said she used Burt's Bees foot creme on her face because it tended to be dry, and so I tried it and LOVED it :)
Definitely one of my favorite artists.

@Ms A. that would be a big fat negative. and besides, the stupid video camera that we got won't set up on my mac.... so the videos i post are always from my regular camera in video mode.... he actually used the camcorder.... bummer. haha!

@Ally, don't feel left out!!!! you have peace and quiet!!! you can nap when you please, and enjoy the company of your husband.... look at the things you have that all of us don't!!! ;) and i totally know what you mean about following a lot of blogs. sometimes i would feel obligated to follow people, but there were just too many people to follow and keep up with.... if i follow you, i read you. for sure... i don't know what i'd do if i followed anymore than i do right now. i'd be the worst comment -leaver ever!!! i totally thought of you outside of the bloggy world the other day and totally felt compelled to write you, but i wasn't home.... i was touched.... for sure.... you're such a sweetheart!

@Phoenix. i LOVE LOVE LOVE her!!! i remember when i saw her in concert, she was telling us how there was one time she got super nervous a few minutes before she was going to go live on tv, and had to go to the bathroom, and had to go into the bathroom, but then had her pantyhose or stockings safety pinned to her bra and was so afraid she wasn't going to make it in time, i'm pretty sure she said she just took her bra off or something like that. she said she was so nervous.... that's so funny.... and then she said when she got on stage, all she could think was, "these people have no idea that i was just sitting in the bathroom like 2 minutes ago!!" she seems like a funny/fun gal!
