Linky Interwebby Awesomeness 12.2.08

Shaw-awn and Travis and Cindy are rehearsing for their Gloria Christmas Tour today (their tour is in partnership with Compassion International, and I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it, but I’m a bit of a Compassion fan). Anyway, Shaun set up a little camera doo-hickey that enables you to watch them rehearse, and while it’s essentially like sitting in an empty auditorium and listening to an orchestra warm up, IT FASCINATES ME.

– I don’t normally “oooh” and “aaah” when I read a magazine, but let me tell you: the latest issue of Southern Accents is breathtaking. The Christmas decorations are absolutely stunning, and I especially love some of the unique color combinations they featured this year (there’s a stair railing decorated in green and blue, and it is divine).

– Finally, you know you’re getting old when your favorite interweb discovery of late is a stain removal guide. But oh, it is mighty handy.

  1. I didn’t realize that Shaw-awn’s video was a live feed. I watched a minute or two of it and said to myself, “well. this is boring.” But then again–he warned us. I’ll have to peek in again.

  2. You crack me up! I wish we lived close enough to meet for lunch. It would be fun.

  3. I will have to go check out Souther Accents! I laughed over your excitement about the stain-removal guide. The Tide Stain Stick makes me a really happy girl. :)

  4. Tune in to watch us slowly hate Christmas due to overexposure.

    I already hate Frosty. Tomorrow, Rudolph.

    Speaking of…tomorrow I’ll be broadcasting live too. If you have no life of your own scheduled be sure and stop by.

    Thanks mama of Boo, for watching and making me laugh. Wish we were heading your way on this tour thing.

  5. I think I might actually be posting right under Shaw-awn which is awesome because his comment totally made me giggle. :)

    How’ve you been feeling girlfriend? Are the nasties completely gone from your fam? Hope so…

  6. love the stain tips. seeing that i have 2 boys, we are always trying to find new ways to take out stains.

  7. i don’t read home decor magazines this time of year (they give me a holiday inferiority complex, and who needs that?! so the LORD told me to fast from them), but the green and blue stair rail sounds so pretty! and they’re my sorority colors! :0)

  8. we girls sat for hours marveling over the new issue of Southern Accents and hot Cranberry Tea all weekend, while of course cheering for my team… is a great issue.

  9. Was there something else you wanted to say? Seems you left us hanging with the bullet. Hmmmm. Intriguing.

    I got an offer a few weeks back for both Southern Living and Southern Accents for two years . . . really cheap. I’m tempted to take them up on it, but after your Southern Living post I’m not so sure. I’m one of those who cancelled my subscription over a year ago. Seems they want me back now.

  10. Are you calling me old? Yep, you are!! I LOVE stain removal guides, but somehow they just don’t work with my stains. :)

    Shawn, Travis and Cindy will be at my church Sunday night on their Gloria Christmas Tour! I can’t wait!!!

  12. Hey, I get excited over stain removal guides, too! A shame, ain’t it?
