Hello lovelies. How art thou? It is Friday evening, and I am blogging. Who blogs on Friday evenings?? Me! I do! I know, I know. I should be running off to a concert or some fabulous place for dinner or doing something somewhat more social and interesting. But, alas, here I am at my computer, writing a blog post. Ahem.
Before you judge, I will admit that I went to a concert on Wednesday evening. I was out past my bedtime. In downtown. At the ever-beautiful Orpheum Theater. To see the Goo Goo Dolls, if you must know. Surprised? I know, me too! I am not usually the concert-going type (besides seeing Mat Kearney because he is unlike any other, and his concerts are like drinking fizzy soda pop from a straw. Not sure what that means, exactly. But he is good. And I love him. I mean, his music. Ahem.), but best friends usually have a way of getting their way. So I went to the Goo Goo Dolls, and it was great! Besides the fact that I couldn’t hear very well afterward. On the much brighter side, we discovered a new band to love! The opening act was actually quite amazing. I came home and downloaded their entire album from iTunes. It’s been on heavy rotation around here.
When I love something, I do that. Repeat, re-wear, use, over and over. Until I’m tired of it and then must not look/eat/wear/listen for several months, or maybe a year or maybe ever. It’s a bad habit. Somewhat obsessive. Love it and then leave it.
Ok, I am going off on a tangent. This post is actually supposed to be another issue of eat, wear, listen. Yes, here are the things I have been loving lately.
Here’s the lineup.
Wear :: This tank. It’s supposed to be for sleeping, I think. It’s from Gap Body, and they have it categorized under “lounge”. Do you think anyone will care if I wear it for everyday? Like, out and about? I hope not. I have two of them and find them to fit well and go perfectly with shorts and flip-flops (my summer uniform). I love the white edging, and the smudgy stripes. I have one in driftwood and one in larkspur.
Eat :: I found these little wonders today at the grocery store. They must be terribly new, because Laughing Cow doesn’t even have them on their site yet. So this horrible, unedited picture will have to do (remember, it’s Friday evening and I am not about to color correct and properly clip a photo of cheese bites for my blog). Anyways, they are tiny and creamy and light! Only 35 calories for 5 of them. And you probably burn at least 5 or 10 calories unwrapping each individual cube. But it’s worth it! The insides of the wrappers have fun, quirky facts on them! Yes, you should try to find these at your local grocer, because they make a great snack.
Listen :: As previously mentioned, I have a new band to love. They are called Vedera, and the simple fact that they opened for Mat Kearney during part of his 2009 tour gives them stars in my book. The voice of their lead-singer-chick is amazing. I can’t believe they aren’t hugely popular!? Some of their songs can start to sound a little melancholoy, but for the most part, they are soaring, upbeat, beautiful melodies that make me wanna dance (Or clean my house! Good music gives me that urge. Strange, I know).
My apologies for the randomness of this post. It’s Friday, what can I say? I have a busy weekend ahead, with family in town, a wedding to attend, and a big old photoshoot for the project Maddy and I have been working on for Nonpareil Mag. Yes, Monday will be here before I know it. Tonight, though, I will be dining on the world’s best sweet potato fries and spending time with my three favorite people on the planet (hubby, mom and dad).
