music monday: Glee

Hi, my name's Lauren and I'm a Gleek.

What? YOU ARE TOO?! I KNEW I was in good company!

One of my current Glee favs that I can't get out of my head is, Loser Like Me, which unlike most of the songs sang on the show, is an original track.


PS. If you aren't a Glee fan yet, head over to Netflix and watch a few episodes... I bet you'll be a convert!

Journal Jar

Are ya ready for this week's journal jar prompt? This week we played with Use Lyrics for your Journaling!   Do you have a favorite song or a song that just seems to say everything you want to say? I love it when i hear a song that seems to sum up my thoughts or feelings that i haven't been able to process!

Here's what our girls did with the prompt!

Dare You to Move by Switchfoot

This song always gives me the chills... the video doesn't help I can promise you!

And these lines always hit home for me:

"The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be"

Double Take Thursday

I think i jinxed myself with yesterday's post!! Today is COLD and overcast-hahahah!

Did you all think we forgot about Double Take Thursday??? No Way! Just took a little bitty break!

So the last Double Take Thursday's prompt was TOUCH....any of  you tackle it? I think there's so many ways to interpret this word....i first thought of capturing something with a lot of texture- showing all the nooks and cranny's and details of the object. Then, while on the computer i glanced over at one of my very few and very favorite things on my desk, a ceramic bird my son sculpted and painted. It was almost the opposite of what i had envisioned with its shiny smoothness....i adore it and I ADORE that he made it with his hands...his touch...

In Lauren's words...."Yes, I went obvious with the theme, but when I saw this photo I took on the last day of school, I just couldn't resist. This is my son's classic photo stall.... "Wait, wait, wait....I have something in my eye...." My non-compliant little model has figured out a way to avoid my constant snap-snap-snap!"

our Double Take....

Next weeks word.....TASTE!

And as us up with your photo's and receive a coupon for TTP goodies!!!

Journal Jar

Where oh where does time go.....It's another Wednesday, and now it is JUNE! JUNE! Really! I feel like if i'm not careful summer is just gonna pass me by...ok not really cuz it's flipping HOT and a big reminder! hahaha!

So because it's Wednesday, it's time for the Journal Jar! Our CT's knocked out some fun ones for you to oogle over today!

This weeks prompt was "If I were a fairytale princess, I'd be...." sound hard? easy? fun??? I think the most interesting part of what princess you'd be is the WHY....what is it about her that you like or can relate to or want for yourself?

Take a look at the different takes the girls had....

Aren't they just so fun! OK, off you go, what princess would you be?! Why?! Scrap it!
