Ok party people. So my print shop is *almost* ready to launch - still got some more work to do. But I wanted to let you guys in just in case you want to buy some!

I’m not going to lie - they look pretty rad when they’re framed ;)

MONDAY MUSIC SHARE (on a Wednesday): Adele - Hello

Honestly, I didn’t even watch this video before I posted it. I just knew that it came out and it had to be good. So obviously I had to go with Adele for this week’s music share.  

So this is the newest single from Adele’s upcoming album, 25.

If her first two albums (19 and 21) can attest to anything, it’s that she writes and sings from a very personal place.

“My last record was a break-up record, and if I had to label this one, I would call it a make-up record. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. 25. is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long but, you know, life happened.”

Anyways. Here you go. Enjoy!

MONDAY MUSIC SHARE (on a Tuesday): Beirut performing “No No No” Live on KCRW

I’m a day late!  My bad.  Which I guess means my 5TT post will go up tomorrow.  

From KCRW, because they say it best:

Zach Condon recorded his debut album as Beirut at age 18 after dropping out of college and running away to Paris. A decade later, he found creative inspiration in his newest international home – Turkey – for his fourth album, No No No. He plays songs from across his discography in this live session recorded at Cutting Room Studios in New York.


Treat Yo Self 5 Things

IT’S OFFICIALLY TREAT YO SELF DAY.  And well, that’s the best news ever.  Anyways, here’s 5 things going on with me:

1  IT’S STUPID HOT IN LA AND I HATE ITYou guys, I don’t understand what is going on with the weather in LA. It legitimately has been 100 degrees this week and everyone is miserable.  

And since I don’t have AC in my car, I’ve been sweating bullets every time I go anywhere. It’s so gross.  

HOT WEATHER GO AWAY! It’s supposed to be autumn! It’s supposed to be sweater weather!

2  TONIGHT I MET A NINJA TURTLELife is crazy sometimes. I went to go babysit for a bunch of people tonight who were having a weekly Bible Study. Oh yeah, sometimes I nanny on the side because I’m pretty good with kids.  Small detail.

Anyways, it was a crazy couple hours watching seven kids. But one of the adults there was a guy named Alan and when we met I immediately thought to myself “you’re a ninja turtle.” 

Technically I know him from NBC’s I Can Do That because I watched it all summer (he and Jeff Dye were hilarious). But it was just weird to be like “Hey, I know you. And you’re here with these people every week to talk about Jesus. That’s pretty cool.”

LA is so weird like that. Since I’ve been here I’ve met and gone to community group with a Jabbawockee and also nannied for Jenna Fischer’s neice (so weird seeing her in that family’s wedding photos - I was like “is that Pam Beesly?”).

But anyways. LA life. It’s a little nutz.  


Tonight the Chicago Cubs won Game 4 against the Cardinals and are advancing! They just might be World Series Champs! Who knows!

4  OKLAHOMA PLANS ARE UP IN THE AIR - As of now my plans to go to ORU’s 50th anniversary has been put on hold. For the first time, Alaska Airlines is fling to OKC and I can finally go there but there’s not enough passes to make it there and back and go home for Christmas.  

It makes me sad because I really want to go and be there for all the festivities and see my friends. But I have no idea how to swing it. Anyone want to sponsor my trip to Tulsa? Please let me know!

5  TREAT YO SELF 2015 - It’s been three years since Tom Haverford and Donna have shared the wonderfulness of TREAT YO SELF day to the world.  And today is that day!!

First, watch THIS VIDEO to know what I’m talking about.  Even if you haven’t watching Parks and Rec.  It’s just so great.


I still need to do something too.

MONDAY MUSIC SHARE: “Satisfied in You” by the Sing Team

What to say about this song. It really got me through a rough season this last few months.  

Those words. Why are you downcast, oh my soul? Why so disturbed within me? 

There’s so many times I’ve asked myself that. When I’m just a hurricane of emotions and I don’t know how to pinpoint why I feel the way that I feel.  

And to think that there’s a God out there that loves me so. And that I should remember that He’s good and that He’s wonderful. And that I shouldn’t have to worry about anything else.  

Honestly, I can probably dissect the lyrics here and would have remarks about everything because I identify with all of it. This is the season I’m in. Or was in. Or why I was absent for awhile.

I needed to rest and be satisfied in Him.
