7 Quick Takes

Today I’m linking up with one of my fave blogs, Conversion Diary. If you’ve never read her, you should really check out yesterday’s “Explore God” post. Her video is really powerful to me.

This is one of my favorite pictures of my parents, from my wedding.

Monday is my mom’s birthday. She is a saint, and I think everyone that knows her recognizes that. As much of a blessing it is to work at your own church, it is also a huge test of grace and patience! Happy Birthday, Mom!

I love undergraduates. They may text too much and obliviously wear headphones when I’m yelling out my car window to cross at a crosswalk, but for the most part they’re a breath of fresh air. I just finished judging undergraduate research posters, and I’m still advising the Delta Gamma chapter here, and they really can amaze sometimes!

This recipe, made in a 9×13 with phyllo on bottom and top is my jam right now. So much easier than little packets and yet so delicious. I use olive oil instead of butter & breadcrumbs between the layers.  Ina is my girl.

I really hope Southern Miss football will get it together. We’re driving down to see them play Marshall later this fall, and we’d love to see a win!

We got to meet Willie Geist in New York last month. He is the single-best reason to watch the Today Show. If you have not read his article, “How to take your 4-year-old daughter to a football game,” stop what you’re doing right now and read it. You will love him forever, I promise.

Because it’s my blog, and I’ll get political if I want to, if you haven’t seen this ad yet, you probably should. From the people who brought you invasive ultrasounds… Seriously people, “generation opportunity” is not down with your creepy scare tactics. And if you’re against government intervention into health care, set down your ultrasound wands.

Finally, if you’re looking for a new time sink, check out Camp Patton. I recently discovered Grace (one of the last to do so, I know), and her writing is hilarious and her three tiny Pattons are a-dor-a-ble. Worth a read.

Happy Friday!
