RECENT PINS

Your New Favorite Springtime Album

Zooey Deschanel’s voice isn’t helping right now.  I am picking through some recent purchases, deciding what pieces I absolutely need and which ones can be sent back.  Under normal circumstances I would easily give in and keep all the dirt cheap deals I found, but things are different today.  I’m pregnant, with my 3rd baby, happily a girl to join my two little guys.  And right now happily is the correct word, I am weeks past the horrifying morning sickness that’s made me firmly decide this is the last little one we’re adding to the family.  So the excuse that I’ll wear some of these pieces again is completely out the door, like that little skirt should have been.

Back to Zooey… she isn’t helping.  I am listening to the new album from She & Him and it is just soft-serve ice cream in the spring lovely.  As I listen I feel like I’m in the happiest scene of a favorite old movie.  Maybe a time piece about the 50’s, a care-free young house wife (probably Samantha Stevens from Bewitched) dressing for her ladies luncheon in her perfectly clean house with a perfectly spring breeze wafting through the window.  Honestly, would you send any of it back?

I’ve been a fan of Zooey Deschanel for a long time.  Does anyone else remember her on that Frasier episode?  Hopefully you were as intrigued by her singing in Elf as I was, if so I would like to introduce you to your new favorite spring album:  She & Him Vol. 2.

If you are a fan of Vol. 1 I’m sure you’re as happy as I am to see Vol. 2 and learn that Zooey and M. Ward are now officially a proper band.

I kept too many pieces.  I found a new excuse, since this is my last pregnancy I deserve to enjoy it!  I really need to get some good photos of this belly and me.  I shunned the camera way too much with the last two.  This time, now that the sickness has passed, I’m doing my best to revel in every second of this.  I may send a thank you card to Zooey.

    I LOVED Zooey's voice in Elf…so much that I spent weeks futilely searching for a recording of her singing “Baby It's Cold Outside.” (Note to anyone listening who can make this happen — please make this happen!) Totally going to check out this album!! Thanks for the tip.

    I like Zooey too! Might have to pick up this album now that you compared it to soft-serve ice cream. Lovely writing.

    Thanks for reminding me that I DID like Zooey's voice in Elf! The cotton commercials annoy me & I got side-tracked by that, but now I'll pick up her album 🙂
