7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol. 1)

So, lately my {this moment} pictures have been feeling a bit uninspired.  I blame this on two factors.  1) Life in crazy-town is such that I just never remember to take out the camera and, 2) Elijah is working on potty training right now, so if I were to take pictures, they probably would not be Internet appropriate because he prefers to run about the house these days without any bottoms on.  Poor sofa.  So, until I get my picture-taking mojo back, I'm going to try linking up with Jen on Fridays instead.  Hopefully I can find seven interesting tidbits to share.

On the subject of subpar blogging, this post brings this week's total  Yep.  Big apologies go out to my biggest fans, namely, my mom, my sister and my mother-in-law.  And I'm leaving this morning on a four-day trip to Chicago with no camera, so don't expect a marked improvement anytime soon.  At least my mom and sis will be seeing me in the flesh, so hopefully that will be almost as good as reading about my life online.

One random thing that it is important to know about me is that I do not like facial hair.  Sometime I will see a man with a beard/mustache and think, that doesn't look too bad.  But then I ask myself, would he look better without it? And this answer is always yes.  

Also, 10 bonus points if you can name the movie that featured the manscaping seen above.

This CD is currently in our car on heavy rotation. On our epic 14-hour car ride from Peoria, IL, to DC last month, we listened to the first track, "Bling-Blang" by Arlo Guthrie about 200 times (gross underestimate).  At least now, we have moved on to a few other songs on the same CD, but very specific ones, and not in order, so I spend a lot of my drivetime playing DJ.

My favorite blog discovery of the week is Ain't No Mom Jeans.  Though I myself will never be fashionable, I enjoy reading about my fellow moms out there who are making it happen.  You go, sisters.  I am proud of you.
Have you seen this commercial yet?

 Love it.

 Yesterday, I was listening to Fresh Air on NPR, and while I was listening I flipped open the New Yorker to a cartoon that mentioned Terry Gross (the host of Fresh Air).  At first I thought that this was some kind of crazy coincidence, but then I realized that its just confirmation that Kurt and I are officially east coast snobs, except we didn't go to Ivy League schools and we are nice.

So, there you have it, folks.  My first 7QT Friday.  If you have your own, feel free to add a link in the comments.  Happy Friday!
