7 Quick Takes: 10/11/13

I’m alive I promise!! It’s been almost two weeks since my last post, and I feel pretty bad about it….not sure why though….maybe it’s false guilt – but that is all beside the point…the point is I’m back to blogging, and I have a Quick Takes post ready for you, so here it is:

1.) I’m typing this as I’m standing in my kitchen waiting for a batch of Brown Sugar Maple Bars to bake, and listening to some music on my computer which reminds me of a blog post a friend of mine recently wrote all about the Soundtrack of a Story…..it was really good, you should check it out….I can wait…..

oh good, you’re back! Well, what did you think?! I love movies with strong soundtracks, in my own personal playlist I have Band of Brothers, The West Wing, The Hunger Games, John Williams (I didn’t want to list all the movies)….this is just a sample of what I listen to, but these are easily some of my favorites.

2.) I bought my Halloween costume for $10 this year. Or I bought the pieces of it rather. It is a “some assembly required” costume, the pieces of which came from my local Goodwill store, and with a little time spent on the sewing machine hopefully I will have a dress that resembles Snow White’s iconic gown…..

3.) I’m also eating butterscotch chips by the handful….but I don’t think you needed to know that.

4.) I finally watched Iron Man 3 last weekend and it was AMAZING!! I love Tony Stark, and I love Robert Downey Jr.. I love anything Marvel comes out with, and have learned to watch a movie to  the VERY VERY end, even past the credits……******SPOILERS AHEAD********

This made my nerdy heart extremely happy!!

AH!!! I know, I’m a nerd, but I LOVE IT!
5.) The bars are out of the oven, and I have a caramel frosting to make…I’ll be back! 
6.) Caramel frosting is done….and insanely good! We are heading up to Frankenmuth tomorrow to do some shopping. We will hit up Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, and a few other local stops. If you didn’t see it already, here is the post I did about Frankenmuth….It was featured on Janssen’s Everyday Reading. 
7.) As always, I’m linking up with Jen and the others over at Conversion Diary. Make sure you read Jen’s post about the centipedes and scorpions. I live in Michigan, but still made it a point to check my bed and blankets before going to sleep the other night…..read this post, and you’ll understand why! After reading this, spiders aren’t looking too bad!! 
Have an awesome weekend! GO BLUE!!

Blessings,

Megan
