Coffee, old Russian books, and church boys

I have two choices with this blog post.
I could rant about how school is just slaughtering me right now...

Or.

I could tell you my favorite things right now because today truly is a blessing.

First, coffee. All coffee, any coffee, anytime, anywhere.
Do I have a coffee addiction?
Well, maybe probably definitely, but it's useful because I need to stay awake somehow to do homework, you see.
The only bad thing about coffee is how quickly I gulp it down.

Secondly, old Russian books.
I am writing a paper on the Russian Revolution and these books that I am reading are just fabulous!
I have always been a huge fan of old books, but these are just delicious with amazing texts/words/ideas.
Also, I really do not know that much about Russian history, so I am utterly fascinated.

Thirdly, church boys.
Do you know about the national a capella reality show called "The Sing Off?"
It's a 5 episode show that takes the 10 best a capella (not necessarily religious) groups in the nation and narrows them down to one winner.
My boys, Committed, won last winter. These church boys are, in the words of a judge, taking the girls to a whole new kind of church!

Just watch this video. And then breath slowly in and out with me, ladies.


What are your top three favorite things from today?

First: Me, too. I can't stay away from it. Also, I would like to take you for coffee sometime. Let me know when you're free for a bit! I miss you!

Secondly: The books themselves are old? In addition to all of that other beautiful things, I bet they smell good! I enjoy the smell of old books far too much.

Lastly: Whoaah. I think my heart just skipped a lot of beats listening to that. They're incredible!

I am thankful for my daughter and that she wants to spend time only with me right now.

I am thankful for my new living room furniture

And I'm thankful for friends like you that remind me to be thankful instead of grumpy
