 Q: Tell us at least one new or unusual thing you've done in 2013.

1. I got new glasses! 

2. I went to Austin City Limits! 

3. Because of ACL, I'm now obsessively in love with Passion Pit! 

4. We took the kids to their first Bengals game!

Nothing so unusual - I'd say more like new! How about you? :D


  1. I love the new glasses!! Okay, two confessions about your post. I had to look up Passion Pit. They're awesome! I really like Constant Conversations. They would be cool to see live. I also had to look up the Bengals because I didn't even know what sport you were talking about. But you guys are the intimidating tiger helmets. Of course! That is so neat you all got to go to a game. I've been to a couple professional baseball games and I'm not sure my hearing or nerves would survive a live Seahawks game. Have a great weekend, Jennifer!

    1. Thanks, Robyn! Hopefully they'll last 'cause I've already stepped on them with my bare feet. Brady used hot water to warp them into shape, and I really love them so I hope they stay together on my face, LOL! I have insurance, so if they do break, I can get a new pair. They might have the same frames at another one of their stores. I go to Lenscrafters.

      It's almost painful, in a good way like a teenage angst kind of way, to listen to Passion Pit because I remember the concert so well and where in the song we'd all start jumping up and down to the beat of the music and throwing our hands in the air. I was hoping if anyone hadn't heard of them before they'd look them up, and I could spread the Passion Pit love. I liked them so much before I saw them, and they were one of the bands I was looking forward to seeing at ACL. Now I LOVE them sooo much!!! They kick ass live! I just bought the album Constant Conversations is on, and the entire album is so cool. Really good stuff.

      Hey, that's ok! I wasn't even that into pro football until 2009, when I was pregnant with Jack, lol. The kids loved it! I was a bit nervous about them being bored or something, but we all lost our voices screaming and cheering. We went out the weekend before and bought new Bengals gear for the game. Janie wears her Bengals hoodie to school all the time now, lol.

      My fave part of going to a Bengals game is the tiger roar they play every time we get a first down or an interception. And below I included the lyrics to the song we sing when we get a touchdown, LOL!

      Bengals Growl Fight Song

      Hear that Bengal growlin' mean and angry

      Here he comes a prowlin' lean and hungry

      An offensive brute

      Run, pass or boot

      And defensively he's rough, tough

      Cincinnati Bengals

      That's the team we're going to cheer to victory

      Touchdown Bengals get some points upon that board

      And win a game for Cincinnati!

    2. The touchdown song is just like in the sports movies I've seen. I would love to see/sing that in real life! My mom and sister are hardcore football fans, but they don't have a song. I think I'll bring that up to them tomorrow. Hmm.

    3. Do they root for the Seahawks?

  2. LOVE the glasses! They're so cute :) Plus I'm super jealous that you went to Austin City Limits. I would love to go one day. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Traci @ Mad Hatter Reads

    1. Thanks Traci! I hope you go to ACL - it's like no other experience I've ever had. I'm lucky, too, because a few of my friends moved from here down there, so I didn't have to stay at a hotel and I got to visit them. Have a great weekend! :D

  3. Your glasses are way cute! And, your pink hair makes me miss my purple hair! I'm glad I at least have purple highlights still! :D

    1. Thanks, Jenni! The first time I dyed my hair, I chose purple because it's my favorite color. Do you have photos of your purple hair? Love to see those! It's super cool you have purple highlights - awesome! :D

  4. Hey, Jennifer, new bloglovin' follower here! Love your new glasses, and I have to agree that Passion Pit is pretty awesome! My FFF post: http://roxysreviews.blogspot.ca/2013/12/feature-and-follow-friday-178.html

    1. Thanks, Roxy! I'm so obsessed with Passion Pit now, lol. I'm an old GFC follower of yours, now a new bloglovin' follower, Twitter & Instagram follower, too. :) Thanks for following! Have a great week!

  5. Very nice glasses, Jennifer! And I love that you shared some photos with us :) That's such a great way to get to know you a little better :) I hope your kids enjoyed the game as much as you did!

    Have a great week! Sorry it's taken me so long to stop by - I've been traveling,and now I'm gearing up for my exams next week *eek*

    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    1. Thanks Lexxie! They definitely had a blast at the game - they cheered their hearts out, lol. We all lost our voices. We lucked out, too, cause it was nice weather. My husband and I decided we're never going to try taking them any month other September or October, lol. We know better than to try taking them to a game in the snow. ;)

      It's no problem Lexxie! I'm just now replying, sorry! Good luck on your exams this week and hope you had fun traveling! :D
