Five Favorites: Hodgepodge

Gotta do this quick, because I don't know how much longer the babies will be down and I still need to make pizza dough for tonight so it can rise, so here's a few things off the top of my head that I'm enjoying.

1. NEW PHONE!!!!

I had been having trouble with my old phone, and since we were well past the 2 year upgrade point, Nate had been looking around to see if there were any good deals for decent phones and, lo and behold, Best Buy was offering Samsung Galaxy S IIIs for a buck (with a 2 year contract with a phone company we already use). And it is AMAZING. It's a huge world of difference. I'm still getting used to their interface (layout, buttons locations, Android updates), but man. I'm in love.

Specifically, the brown noise setting on high oscillation. Knocks Freddy right out. And it's FREE-NINETY-FREE (as Dwija would say).

3. These leaves!

I literally got up, took the picture from my bedroom window, downloaded the Blogger app on my sexy phone, and put it in the post. Less than 5 minutes. TECHNOLOGY.
Rosie had a blast crunching around in my former roommate's backyard, and then fussed about going inside when we got home because I swept the leaves from our sidewalk into a bit of a pile and she wanted to keep playing.


I hate the fall merely because I can't escape politics (local, state, federal - IT'S EVERYWHERE), and our newly elected governor ran a particularly nasty campaign. However, now that election day has come and gone, I don't have to worry about seeing political ads for at least another 6 months. Hallelujah!

5. New babies!!!
Remember last week's favorites with Facebook? There have been about 3 births and 4 pregnancy announcements since then, plus my former roommate is getting MARRIED ON SATURDAY!!! And marriage makes babies. There's space for 12 of them in her family bible her parents gave her. :-)

So hurrah for all these things! Go see some more over at MoxieWife


  1. Thank goodness for no more political ads! This was a pretty brutal election season...

  2. Oh, how I wish I would have known about brown noise with my first! We did womb noises for her. Autumn colors are the best - I always have my phone with me in the morning when I'm getting ready. In the sunrise they are so beautiful!

    1. I found it out of desperation while trying to find something for him since his sister has my old alarm clock, which has nature sounds, in her room now. I was shocked at how well it worked!

  3. Hahaha, I love that you mentioned how many spots your friend's family bible has for babies. I've often thought about that. Mine has six, which is plenty of aspiration for me at this point. :) Hope your pizza turned out fabulously!
