Calvin Basketball Video

Here is a video I found made by students at Calvin. The shots are pretty cool, but I wonder how many attempts it took to make this 2:30 video.

Slug Bug

I love Super bowl commercials! I thought that this year there were quite a few good commercials. I really like the Betty White commercial for Snickers and the all of the baby Etrade commercials were hysterical, but my favorite commercial was the Volkswagen commercial with Stevie Wonder. This was so funny for many reasons. I grew up doing "slug bug" to my family members whenever we would see a VW Bug (ahhhh childhood memories). My family had an awesome VW Van when I was little and I drove a VW Golf (with no heat or AC) when I was in college, so I think that VW's are pretty great. I even tried talking Andy into getting an VW Eurovan when we were van shopping last spring, but he shot that down real fast. The best part of the commercial was when Stevie wonder said, "Red one," and then slugged Tracy Morgan. Hilarious!! What were your favorite Superbowl commercials?

21 Days to a New Habit

I've heard that it takes 21 days to start a new habit. I figured that if I posted what I want my new habit to be, then I would be more likely to follow through with it. So, what is my new habit? I want to try and get up by no later than 6 am everyday and be dressed and ready to go before my children are up. Some of you might be thinking why would I want to do that or that 6 am isn't early, but I find that my days go so much better when I am up and dressed before my kids are up and usually my kids rise around 6:30, so I figured that would be enough time to get dressed and mostly ready. I'm going to try my hardest to do this, but that will mean that I have to be disciplined at night and go to bed at a decent time... not so easy for me. I'll try to put up weekly updates throughout the month to let you know how it is going.

*** I haven't forgotten about my daily pictures, but I lost the cord for awhile and then Andy took the camera out to Colorado, so I'm going to try and update some pictures tonight!
