Random Friday, first in 2010

I haven't remembered to do a Random Friday in over a month! Did anyone notice?

See the baby playing Rock Band? 

A friend of mine is looking for examples of blogs that turned into books. We all know about Julie and Julia. I love Orangette (A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table), there is Pioneer Woman and Soule Mama. Dooce has a couple of books now. Who else?

REALLY dislike the new(ish) thing on some (all?) Wordpress blogs that requires me to click the link to confirm that I want to subscribe to comments.

I was just sitting here thinking about how much I wanted to see the ocean, and how very far away the ocean is. And then I remembered- we leave for Hawaii in one month! Any great tips on visiting Kauai?

Mike bought me a new coffeemaker. It's a teeny little thing, but it has a timer. It is AWESOME to wake up to fresh, hot coffee. (The Mr. Coffee DRX5 4-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker, Black if you're in the market. $20!)

2010 is starting off huge for us, I'm full of expectations of an awesome year. I'm excited to see how this year turns out. How are you feeling about 2010?  Do you start every year with a sense of hope or is it just another day/week/month?

  1. I wish I had some suggestions for Hawaii, but I don't, since I've never been there. :( I love the picture!

  2. I haven't read it yet but Rebecca Woolf who's blog is wrote; Rockabye From Wild To Child. Have fun in Hawaii!

  3. Never been to Hawaii either.

    Cute little guy copying the grown-ups.

    2010 - I hope it will be better than the last four or so years. I am optimistic. :)

  4. I read several blogs that are turned/turning into books. Most are humor books like: (Not humor) (Not humor)

    I know there are a bunch more, but I can't think of them right now!

  5. I thought of a couple more! has a cookbook and another book, I think. has a cookbook, as well.

  6. Cake Wrecks comes to mind as does Passive Agressive Notes.

    I've never been to Hawaii so I can't help you there. However, if you stow me away in your carry-on I could do some research for you.

  7. We got Beatles Rock Band for Christmas. So much fun! But I don't have any cute babies like that around to play with. SO CUTE!

    Hawaii!!?!?!! You're going to Hawaii in a month? My only suggestion is that you should have invited me to come along!!! LOL Seriously, that trip sounds amazing. Um suggestions.... bring back plenty of Kona coffee to use in that new coffeemaker!

    I don't like that wordpress feature either. It is rather annoying to have to do so many clicks and page loads and clicks to get email notifications of comments. Bleh.

  8. I was totally feeling your ocean pain--there is nothing I like better than sitting on a beach, listening to the waves. Then you had to go and crush me by saying that you get to go to Hawaii. Hawaii of all places! I'm sooooo jealous!

  9. Men NEVER grow up, do they? No help on Hawaii because I have never been. I did order you the book and it should be on its way. That is my contribution:) Have a good weekend.
