He uses the blog against me, this husband of mine.
As I innocently try to wake him up with songs I make up about Cooper driving a car (“Cooper Dooper super star, you’re my best friend you know you are. With your furry face you could drive a car. Cause you’re a little super star. Super Star”) and lambs that won’t eat ham, he sleepily places a hand across my face and whispers “Just…..be still.”
But don’t let him fool you. No, not for a second. Because deep down (ok maybe wayyyy deep down) despite all the hem-hawing, eye rolling and audible sighs, I know he secretly loves my singing. No, really… he does. He could sit for hours in the car while I belt out the entire Celine Dion Greatest Hits Collection. In reverse chronological order. Not saying that I DO do that or anything. Just that if I did… he could totally listen to it for hours. Trust me. And please don’t even get me started about how much he loves my a capella work….especially when I ask him to sing back up. In baritone.
But more than anything, what I know is that he loves my original ballads best. And honestly, I’m not surprised. I mean c’mon…with such classic gems as “I ammmmm….the little lammmmb. I won’t eat hammmmm, fo sho”…how could he not? :)
Today I hope you dance to the beat in your own head and sing whatever melody makes your heart happy.
Even if everyone else around you wishes you would just be still.
We had an *amazing* time at our “Walk through a Wedding w/ J&M” workshop yesterday with the absolute best group of attendees we could ever possibly imagine! We love all of you guys! Pictures of all that fun will be coming very soon. But for now, here’s a little sneak peek from the workshop, as well as some before & afters of our new windows to get you through to the weekend.
**editor’s note: please note that no grass was harmed in the making of this shoot, nor was it saturated in any way. It actually WAS this crazy green!
Scary giant holes in the side of my house.
So our master bedroom will make up the whole third floor, which I am super excited about. Up til a couple of days ago, it had a giant (filthy, cracked and leaking) bay window in it.
For about two hours it had a giant hole in it.
Then the new window got hoisted up. I like the word hoisted. That’s just fun to say.
And here is our NEW window!! Yay :)
