5 on Friday

Ah, my favorite, a post with no direction!

Trader Joe's sells boxed wine.


Also, not snobby wine comments here.  I'm not above boxed wine.  I have two little wild boys.  I NEED this.

Speaking of my two wild boys, we made this amazing music video last night.

Bech has had a lot of late work days lately (the studio has an Empty Bowls event on Sunday), which means I am finding any means possible to entertain my two little rascals!

We used the app Triller, and Jack is obsessed.  Plus, I'll admit, it's pretty fun for adults too!

Okay, this next item is a little dorky.  Fine, fine, every item is dorky, but this is more so than usual.

We have been singing a lot of Christmas songs around here.  While singing "Jingle Bells" the other day to Jack, I realized that, in the song, "jingle" is an imperative.  As in, "jingle" (an imperative 2nd person plural verb) "bells" (the persons/things being told to jingle).

Pretty cool, huh?

Or not...

Lately, I have been a reading machine.  I always read a lot, but I have been reading even more than usual.  I just finished the last Liane Moriarty book and I've read most of Elin Hildebrand at this point. 

I want to go back and read some classics that I never read in high school.  So far, my list is Les Miserables, The House of Seven Gables (I keep starting it and not finishing...this does not bode well), Love in the Time of Cholera (I loved 100 Years of Solitude so I'm thinking I'll enjoy this as well), and some of the Russians.

Any suggestions?  I've read most Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Vonnegut.  I've read all of Ayn Rand.  I am NOT a Steinbeck fan.  Any classics that you just LOVE?

Gil has been SO fussy and clingy lately.  Some of it is just his personality, but I realized last week that he has four molars coming in at once, bless his heart!

But even with all of the crying and fussing, this kid is just so much fun.  He has started laughing this deep, goofy laugh, and we just love it.  I can't even handle the cuteness.

Also, I just returned an 18 month outfit for a 12 month outfit...for my 14 month old!  And today he is wearing a little jon jon that Jack wore at 8 months.  Oh, this kid!

Well that's all I have for today.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Can I just point out how "white girl trying to rap" you look in that video?!?! I'm having Becky Bacot flashbacks! Just swap it out for some open car windows and a little Usher. :)

As far as classics, I read Their Eyes Were Watching God recently (for the first time) and LOVED it!
