Some Stuff and Some Things

1. It’s Valentine’s Day. I am thankful for my Valentine and our two little Valentinas. Since the little one tricked us into thinking she was sick, which caused us to stay home from church, and then she really wasn’t sick at all so she basically played her “get out of church free” card, we celebrated yesterday. It was a lovely day. J made a fabulously delicious lunch. I took my big girl shopping for a few spring clothes. We took both girls to Liberty Park to ride bikes and trikes. Even though we really did miss church, and I heard Danny’s sermon was fantastic, I’m glad to have had the day to spend together with our little posse-o’-four.

2. We watched the Grammys last night. I knew after the Super Bowl half-time show that I am completely out of touch with pop culture. I didn’t recognize most of the names that were called for awards. And some of the performances? What? However, the highlight of the night, the performance that made it all worth watching, was “Jolene” by Norah Jones, John Mayer, and Keith Urban. It was fantastic! Although I admit that I had to google it to figure out who Norah Jones was. See? OUT. OF. TOUCH. Look people, if it’s not Selah, Travis Cottrell, the Gettys, or the Shades Mountain Baptist Church choir, then it’s probably not on my iPod.

3. Speaking of the Grammys, I wish I could get away with wearing my hair just like Esperanza Spalding. I mean, did you see it?!? Big, big, big and beautiful! (No, I don’t know who she is. See #2. And since I have never heard her music, I probably shouldn’t be advocating her. But the HAIR! Oh, the hair!)

4. I took my big girl to see Gnomeo and Juliet over the weekend. She thought it was the cutest thing she had ever seen. It was actually a pretty accurate retelling of Shakespeare’s original, except for the ending – which they covered as well. It was cute, and she chose it over the Justin Bieber movie, for which I am eternally grateful. Actually, the twitter and the facebook are all abuzz about what a great message the J. Bieber movie was, so we will probably end up seeing it, too.

5. There is no 5. But 4 is such an odd number to end on. I mean, I know it’s technically an even number, but you know what I mean.

Happy Valentines Day to you all!
