random thoughts

There is not really anything exciting going on in our lives right now, so I thought I would just share some thoughts on various things:

1. There are several things that were new to America last year that I think are ridiculous. The first is "Twitter." Seriously, no one should update the world on every little thing that happens to them. It is boring. No one cares. Okay, yes, your subscribers care, but they shouldn't. I have been told that you have to have a twitter account in order to read someone else's twitter update. I have also been told that news channels and other similar businesses/organizations/etc. have good "tweets." So I guess thats a semi-good reason to have a twitter account. Other than that, it just weirds me out.

Also, snuggies are creepy and not very attractive. No one needs to walk around wrapped in a blanket at all times. And the animal print snuggie totally weirds me out.

The Jonas Brothers tv show. Need I say more? Maybe the Jonas brothers were popular before I went to Malawi...I don't know? I babysit a lot, and some of the kids are a little older. Plus Bech learns all about them from the "seedsters." And I don't really like them. They can't act. Plus I dreamed I was dating one of them last night, and I am very upset that the Jonas brothers have made their way into my dreams.

2. Okay, enough about what bugs me. Here's what is cool: when your head pastor/boss tells a little story in staff meeting about his good friends R.C. Sproul and Sinclair Ferguson...whoa! I wish I could tell little stories about my good friends Derek Webb and Donald Miller. Seriously though, how amazing is that? I work at a cool church.

3. I am loving fall. It is not as cold this week as it was last week, but it is still chilly. Every Tuesday I cook something for MCF. This week I made pumpkin spice cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese icing...oh my goodness! They are SO good! I found the recipe here. You should try them out...today...or maybe tomorrow. That's how good they are. And they are pretty easy to make.

4. This Saturday, MCF is going to a corn maze...I am so excited! We are going to this place. I have never been to one of these, but I think its going to be really fun.

Okay, enough boring-ness. I am going to put up some pics of our living room soon, because it's almost all together!

1. Oh no! Did my email inspire your first rant?

2. I agree with the snuggies, though I hear that if you actually ever buy one you love it.

3. That is rather upsetting that the Jonas brothers are in your dreams. I'm not a fan of them nor Miley. I really don't understand the obsession.

4. You should be here for fall. The trees are beautiful.

Ok, what about the animal print snuggie for your dog? I mean seriously, the best of both worlds! ;)
