Song of the week: Sleepyhead by Passion Pit
Week in Review: We went to the movies this week, together but not to the same movie. We actually split up to see films that the other had been to while we were apart. Josh took the in The Hobbit and I went to Birdman. Birdman deserves every Oscar nomination for performance it’s getting but I think it should stop there. It’s a really unique film and a different way to look at mental health issues. However I personally don’t like the genre of movie and TV shows about lives of actors. I can’t stand 30 Rock, I don’t find wealthy and famous people getting to shenanigans that have no connection to the real world interesting. That is not exactly what Birdman is but that part was distracting. Someone who is struggling with where their life has gone after some bad choices is interesting.
We also went to Wild, I highly recommend this book. I liked the movie and the book but especially the book. Both Josh and I have read it and enjoyed. I would be curious to hear from anyone who has seen the movie but not read the book, I wonder how they felt about her at the end.

I have neglected one of our most popular posts, the annual jammie pants photos!!!! If you are new then let me explain. Every year my amazing mother makes matching pajama pants for my entire family. We all put them on for a photo and them wear them Christmas morning. That way even if we aren’t together we sort of are.
This year had a special theme, Paw-Jammas. My dad goes by the moniker of Paw to his grandkids, yes Paw vs. Pa. My mom came up with a great idea to celebrate his year of winning some big car shows. The pants are made from paw print fabric and the shirts we are wearing are from a show my father’s Fairlane took a trophy at in 2013 and was featured on the 2014 shirt.

Well I hope no one is trying too hard to follow our upcoming schedule because it just changed again.
I am currently in Florida but head out Monday to join up with Josh in Nashville. He is in St. Louis today, actually going to see my parents. After Nashville we roll onto Knoxville but plan to actually spend the week in Asheville.
Week in Review:
Well many things were a bit rattled this week. I spent the entire week in Florida and Josh was in St. Louis for most of it. He went to City Museum and had a great time. He said it was incredible. As you can see it was pretty crazy.
He made sure to take a pic with one of my buddies
