Marriage is a Wonderful Thing

Martin's always full of thoughtful surprises. So this morning when I asked him to re-burn a mixed CD for me and add two more songs onto it that I'd forgotten to put on it the first time, I expected him to tack an extra on to the end. I thought it might be a sweet little romantic song, maybe Ben Folds or a version of "Barstool." Or I thought it might also be another one of his crazy gun songs. I did not, however, expect--after listening to a very mellow mix of folksy songs--to hear "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" to close out the disc. Wow, Martin. You might just listen to the Avett Brother's "I and Love and You", then Jackson Browne's "The Pretender" THEN put on that crazy tractor song and feel a little bit of the surprise I felt this morning! Ha!

I am making clothespin dolls for my nieces.

my fingers are going numb.

we're going to dinner with my 'rents

i think thye like us because they've been asking us to hang out for awhile. either they like us or they're trying to recapture their youth by being around our blissful youthfulness.

I am so excited to hear that someone else knows the Avett Brothers. We saw them a few months ago and immediately bought tickets for their next show. They ROCK! And our kids love them too. Elijah got an mp3 player for Christmas and it was his first request. There is nothing like hearing your precious children singing at the top of their lungs, "I cut my chest wide open!"

That reminds me of the New Years Eve mix... I don't know if I was free to take that CD (since you have the songs on iTunes anyway), but I realized on my way home that i forgot to snatch it. And it was so charming with those last four songs, too...
