Calling Dish Network!

I am SOOOO ticked off. Tonight was to be a very, very special night. Some soft music. A little candle light. A nice dinner. Just me and my seven o’clock date. The Gilmore Girls. And it’s NOT on! Why you ask? WHY INDEED! WHY would someone do this to me? What kind of cruel, sick […]


Over- Achievers

Check this out. The first official preview for the movie Eragon. Okay, Christopher Paolini, the guy who wrote Eragon. Hello, 15 when he wrote the book. And now it’s a major motion picture. What was I doing at fifteen? Um, let me think. Failing my drivers test on a regular basis. (I should probably have […]


The "R" Word

Responsibility has been the theme of church lately. Ugh. Sometimes I don’t want to be responsible. There are definitely things to do that are more fun. Shopping. Watching a movie.

School Schmool

Elephants Can Be Quite Lovely

Happy Monday! After this week it is Thanksgiving vacation! Woooo! So looking forward to a week off. And eating. And shopping. And eating some more. Congratulations to the winners of I’m SO Sure: Carrie Turansky and Colene. Ladies, just send me your mailing addys to jen at jennybjones dot com. Before I tell you about […]
