7 Quick Takes vol. 35

I’m linking up with Hallie this week because Jen is in the hospital with a pulmonary embolism. In case you haven’t heard, head over to Hallie’s to get a few details. Jen has asked for prayers, so prayers she will get.

Speaking of people in the hospital, Grace’s little guy arrived early. Head over there to congratulate her on her newest camper.

I am enjoying my last days of vacay here in the mitten. Currently, my parents are giving Ellen a bath and getting her ready for bed. I am sitting on the couch drooling over my computer and digesting the awesome dinner and dessert they treated me to. I could get used to this, and I did.

In case you were busy doing things like being with your family and celebrating this holiday season (which isn’t over yet, pleasedon’tforget), I did a Celebrate Like a Catholic series that will wrap on January 6th which we all know is (together now) the Epiphany. Check it out here.

I have got Mike talked into a minivan and I am so incredibly happy. I honestly felt my jeans tapering a bit. We’re going to wait until we move in February (don’t ask where we are moving…we have no idea #prepared), but after that, I will be all sliding doors and stow-and-go, my friends.

Is it just me or does anyone else talk about their Internet friends as if they know them in real life? I mean, it’s just easier to talk to people about them when you say “friend” opposed to “this person I know from the Internet”. Why am I probably talking about you with people I know in real life? I don’t know. I’m introverted?

A few vacay pics. Don’t worry. They aren’t in slideshow form.

  1. I am so tempted to get a minivan (HELLO STORAGE!) but my neighbor could seriously be the mom-jean queen. Every time I see her, it slaps me back to reality and I’m good. And a couple of weeks ago I mentioned you as “my friend Jenna” to Mike and his response was “Have you even met this girl?” “Um…nope” “She could be a serial killer or something.” “yes i’m sure she started her blog as a huge farce for her serial killer tendencies.” Men are so weird. And you are my friend….even though we haven’t met….. :)

    • Haha I asked Mike last night if I could just start calling you and others my friends instead of “that blogger, you know, Jen?” He said that was perfectly fine in the name of saving time. And, it works out because you are my friend!

  2. #6 I totally do this. And then people ask how I know so and so, and I want to die a little.

  3. We just bought a minivan a couple months ago and I’m in love.
    I suppose nothing says “mom jeans” like maternity ones, yes?

  4. I love the pic with the cat! And yes, my husband makes fun of me evèry time I start a sentence with, “my friend, I mean, this girl whose blog I follow”.

  5. “I honestly felt my jeans tapering a bit” hahaha that is comedic gold right there. Love it :)

  6. I’m sad about the holidays ending and going back to work full time too. :-/ I’ll check out the celebrate being Catholic series!!

    I’m over here visiting from 7QT.

    Happy New Year!
