Five Things

I enjoyed this week’s list!  It was fun.  I got to troll through iTunes and my Kindle to find most played songs and half read books, and found a bunch of songs that I still want to play and other books I want to read instead!  So here, on this dreary Sunday, is the Sunday Social!

Sunday Social

This Weeks Questions: Brought to you by the number 5

  1. 5 songs you’ll listen to the rest of your life:
    Oh gosh I feel like these change on a regular basis.  Right now? 
    Jesus Freak by DC Talk, Do You Hear What I Hear by Spiraling (yes I know it’s Christmas.  I don’t care.  It’s a Who song.)  We Are The Normal by the Goo Goo Dolls, Under the Scotsman’s Kilt by the Irish Rovers, and Travelin’ Soldier by the Dixie Chicks.
  2. 5 things on your bucket list:
    Pay off student loans, get married, have six months salary in the bank in reserve, be able to routinely support the missions work at my church both financially and with my presence, and learn to play the cello.  Competently.
  3. 5 celebs you’d love to hang out with for a day:
    This is hard.  I am limiting myself to currently living celebs (so no Katherine Hepburn) and female (so they can come to girls night).  Lauren Graham, Tori Spelling, Anjelah Johnson, Katie Holmes (‘cause that girl needs some of the normalcy found in a girls night) and Betty White.  Because the six of us would have a darn good time.  If boys were allowed to attend, Wil Wheaton, Nathan Fillion, and Joss Whedon.
  4. 5 things you always carry on your purse:
    Wine Key (the waitress in me shall never die), screwdriver, lipsticks (yes plural, though I only ever wear one), cigar case (for ‘supplies’), glasses case.  Glasses, of course, may be optional.
  5. 5 books on your reading list:
    I have tried for years to finish Water for Elephants.  I have a deal going with a friend to read Les Misérables this year.  One of these years I’m going to read the Bible through in a year and not get to Judges and quit or (like last time) Psalms and give up (not a poetry fan).  I have never been able to bring myself to read anything by Jane Austen, though same friend swears it’s her favorite author.  And I’d like to read more true life biographies, like the story of the Brooklyn bridge. 
  6. Share the last 5 pictures on your phone
    I’d love to, but they were of a children’s production at my church this evening (109 kids in grades K-5, and they did AWESOME.  So proud of them.) and I don’t post photos of other people’s children without their permission.  So here are the five other recent photos.


My Sunday night girls and I don’t exchange Christmas gifts, instead we try to do something together.  This year the VMFA had a Chihuly exhibit.  We thought it was different, but had no idea how much we’d enjoy it.  Truly breathtaking work.  We made a fantastic memory.


I cannot explain how amazing this piece is.  It’s about twelve feet long,
hanging from the ceiling.  Simply spectacular.


One of the installations was outside, and the recent “snow” left a pretty
picture from this second story window.


New favorite beer found that night.  First ginger beer I’ve found that tastes
like true ginger, not sicky sweet.


Interesting shot, it was a full moon on the way home that night!


And since I won’t post photos of the kids, I’ll include this one from the
same night since it’s of an adult.  I love this new app I found.  We had so much fun
waiting for the kids to come to dinner tonight.
