today my kids woke up at 5:00 in the morning....i walked half asleep to the LR, pull out a massive basket of toys, got milk for the kiddos, and plopped on the floor....i figured i needed something to help me face the day so i turned on adele unplugged that i recorded last night.  that girl has insane passion and her voice give me chills....it worked, she totally woke me up and put me in a good mood...i recommend you try it :)

my dad told me i used the word "obsessed" too much....i've got to give it to the guy, i do....i'm trying better to expand my vocabulary...but in this situation, i've just gotta to say it- i'm OBSESSED w/ brass :)  i love it when kitchens mix finishes and i would love to add tarnished brass, chunky pulls in my own.
