Saturday Night Musings

27 Jun

During the day I thought of a random assortment of things that I’ve been meaning to tell you all on here, so bear with me!

Wedding Cake
Thanks for all of the encouragement and laughs from the disastrous top tier of wedding cake video.  My mom sent me an e-mail with the subject line “ewwwwwwwwww” after she watched it, so I think it’s safe to say we made the right decision in not eating it!  Maybe for our 5th wedding anniversary, I’ll order just a top tier from a cake baker. 🙂
I never thought about this before some of you mentioned it, but I guess I’ve never really posted a video with me speaking in it before!  I have definitely developed something of a southern twang since I’ve moved here (though nothing compared to people who have been here their whole lives!), but Bruce tells me it’s something that I can turn on and off.  I’ve noticed that when I spend a lot of time with people with thick southern accents (like a lot of the staff, patients and families at Grady), I tend to turn it on.  I also tend to turn it on if I get excited or wound up about something and start talking really fast (like when I’m grossed out over moldy flowers on my cake).

I said this a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve been trying to do some organizing to this blog of mine.  Blogger FINALLY allows you to create pages, so I’ve been slowly but surely trying to put them together (check out my Wear a Dress Tuesday page!).  The page that has probably gotten the most attention is my Recipes page.  Every time I post a recipe I update the page so that you don’t have to dig through my archives to find a particular recipe.
I had been trying to organize a recipe binder or folder at home, but then I realized that I was doing a much better job of just keeping everything all together on here!  So if you’ve noticed more recipes posting lately, that’s why.  It actually the easiest way for me to write down and bookmark the stuff that I’m cooking/baking.  If you see a recipe go up and don’t necessarily want to look carefully at it right away, that’s where my recipe page will be helpful!  Hopefully everything will be easy to find long-term.
You should also check out my “Life Through a Lens” page!  I was looking for an excuse to post more photos on a semi-regular basis and created this page to organize them.  It’s kind of like Dooce’s Daily Photo (or a Project 365 blog), except it’s not daily and I usually end up offering way more commentary on the photos!

I know that most of the country was devastated when Team USA lost today, but I think the way that they lost and the way that Ghana won just goes to show how classy of a sport soccer is.  There were no fights and no excessive and inappropriate celebrating.  At one point I saw someone from Team USA and Team Ghana exchange jerseys (Bruce told me that’s what players who defended each other do?) and shake hands.  The sport has class, the players have class and the coaches have class.  I love the world cup!
Oh – and I love vuvuzelas.  They could seriously lull me to sleep.
On Call

I am on call again tomorrow – 8 a.m. tomorrow until 9 a.m. Monday.  I was on call last Sunday and it was a long, difficult and sleepless day and night.  I’m hoping for a quieter day tomorrow.  Please pray for my strength and sanity as I anticipate and go through the day – I would really appreciate that!  I will be back Monday to say hi. 🙂
I’m off to spend the rest of the night (what’s left of it, where did it go?) with my wonderful husband.  He’s thinking of starting a fishing/outdoorsy blog and wants me to show him the ropes!  Of course I’ll share the link when he’s up and running.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I'll be sure to say a prayer for your on call! I think you're doing an amazing job and I know you're blessing the people at the hospital so much!

    LOL about your hubby starting a blog! You guys will be like Mr and Mrs Blogger or something!

    P.S. Noticed a while back that you changed your url. Just curious to know if you bought the domain? Hope I'm not being too nosy!

    Bruce is starting a blog? After all the crap he gave us about blogging at Gretchen's dinner party? That's hilarious 🙂

    Also, you have to do over 24 hours on call??? That's insane!! The most we ever do is 12.

    I love desserts, but there's no way I would have eaten that either. When I finally get married, I think it might be a better idea just to order a new cake topper for my first birthday.

    And the jersey exchange is a tradition after most world cup games. It is a nice gesture, plus there's the fact you get to see all the guys topless!

    So I just watched your cake video, and that was pretty disgusting I must say (but really funny)! However, when we tried to have ours for our first anniversary it was super disgusting as well, so I don't blame you for not eating yours! And 24 hrs on call is a long time! I hope you're still loving it!
