7 Quick Takes Saturday

I'm going to attempt to do this really quickly.  I'm leaving for Ladies' Night Out in 5 minutes.

1. I saw someone post on facebook the other day that they hate the kids' show "Special Agent Oso" on the Disney Channel.  I heartily agree.  Fortunately Chase and Lyla don't like it either.  They do, however, like another show I detest: The Freshbeat Band.  It's real people who sing and dance and act ridiculously cheesy at every opportunity.  They're "teenagers" (probably actually in their 20s) who think they're soooo cool.  I think I'd prefer the Wiggles (40 year old men) over these dumb kids.  Haha.

2. I had an awful dream last night that my little sister got pregnant and my first reaction was to pump my fist in the air and yell, "Yes! I'm the only one of my sisters not to get knocked up out of wedlock!" :-O  Horrible!

3. Our Valentine's Day gift to each other this year was an outdoor antenna that is supposed to help us get more channels. Justin hooked it up indoors today just to see if it would work.  It does.  We now get CBS and NBC in addition to ABC and FOX that we already got.  And a bunch of PBS channels of course.  The big huge antenna is sitting on the top of the loveseat, though.  It's real attractive.  Hopefully soon Justin will hook it up outside. :-)  We're both so excited about all the new shows we'll be able to watch, though!!

4. I read Crazy Love by Francis Chan this week. (Don't have time to link it - sorry.)  It was very eye opening and scary.  I'm going to write a blog post about it soon, so stay tuned for that.  I've been enjoying reading lately.  I'm hoping to get back into the habit.

5. Today I started Babywise Book 2 - for babies 5-15 months of age.  I liked the first Babywise, and like the premise of this book (instilling morals through the use of age appropriate discipline), but I'm to like chapter 6 and I don't really like it.  It just seems too extreme for me.  We'll see . . .

6. Lucy and I had a playdate with my friend Kelly and her daughter Presley (who is one month older than Lucy) this week.  They actually came over at like 8:45 in the morning for coffee!  That would have been unheard of for me before Lucy came along.  Haha. We had a blast!

7. My ride just arrived for Ladies' Night Out.  We're going to the mall followed by a trip to Meijer, which promises to be a raucous good time! Let's see if the Baptist women's group can get kicked out of Meijer . . . :-)


  1. I'm really okay with the fact that we don't get Disney channel or any of those. Hannah (and I) love the PBS shows. Dinosaur Train and Sid the Science Kid, anyone?

  2. You have that dream about me ALL THE TIME. Whyyyy?

  3. I don't like Oso either. O likes Mickey Mouse Clubhouse the best, and we also watch Handy Manny and Dinosaur Train a lot. There's nothing he loves that I hate, thank goodness!!

    Glad your antenna works! Love the image of it sitting on your loveseat :P

    I didn't even know there was another Babywise book. Kinda glad you didn't like it so I don't have to read it ;)

  4. I've been wanting to read Crazy Love. Your's is the first comment I've heard about it being kind of scary, so that really piques my interest.
