So it’s been a weird but somewhat productive week. Last week the kids got sick, so my Thursday of Freedom (when the kids are usually in preschool/MDO for 5 hours) turned into a trip to the pediatrician and cuddling a sick baby. Would I be an awful person if I said that my little one’s fever resulted in great cuddle time? Yes? Never mind.

I’ve also been working on updating my app, Lamplight, for iOS 7. And yes, I’m super-late getting to that. It’s coming along. Hopefully I’ll get it done before the next rev of the iOS comes out.

1. Benefit Watt’s Up – I got one of these as a sample and LOVE IT. I use it in the inside corner of my eyes (next to my nose) and on my brow bone. I’m definitely getting the full-size version when this sample runs out.

2. Sonic Cherry Limeade – I’ve had quite the thing for these lately. Sonic has happy hour between 2-4pm when drinks are half-off, so I like to pick one up after picking up the kids from school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And I always always always get the Route 44 size. Funny(ish) story: one day I looked at the huge cup that my Route 44 cherry limeade came in and sincerely said to my husband, “I wonder how many ounces this is?” He looked at me like I was the dumbest person on the planet. So when Garrett wants to feel superior, he can always bring up the Route 44 or the kazoo (that’s another story).

3. Belight Software’s Art Text 2 – To fit in with the iOS 7 look and feel, I’ve created brand new icons for Lamplight. Lamplight is a universal app (meaning it’ll run on iPhones and iPads), so I have to create an icon for each device and resolution, as well as different sizes for the various places the icon may show up. So far, that’s 14 icons. That little chore would be truly awful if it wasn’t for Art Text. I can design the icon once, then easily resize it for whatever dimensions I need.

I also used Art Text to create my website banner and other images for this blog.

(By the way, I’m not a graphic designer, so please don’t ask me about logos. I’m just too cheap to hire someone, so I make do.)

4. Hillsong’s Forever Reign – I love this song so much. It describes so well the way that I feel about God. And I love the way that it proclaims the name of Jesus. Check out the video below.
