A Bun in a Hot Place

It's finals week.
Stress and anxiety levels are at an all time high.
I may or may not have had random silly crying spells yesterday.
I am expected to graduate in exactly a week.  
If I pass my piano profficiency.   
Ick.
Then...precious freedom and a lot of unknowns.

So, tonight in between me writing a paper for Psychology and studying for Psychology and Mr. Murphy slaving away over his French final we decided WE NEEDED A BREAK!
Enough was enough, our brains had had it and it was time for some sweet sweet music making.  
It is the 2nd best kind of therapy out there.

So, we dressed ourselves and scrubbed off the study grunge and made ourselves look presentable to record a happy song.

Here is our original cover of Iron and Wine's "Such Great Heights" debuting Mr. Murphy's birthday gift.

So, why don't you take a break from what ever hot situation you are in and treat yourself to a little procrastination by yours truly and her honey bun.  
It can be good for the soul ya know?

I want to thank (this lady) for the inspiration for the Audrey Hepburn meets Carrie Bradshaw
BUN!


The light at the end of that long, sad, dark, depressing, lonely tunnel is near.
I can't wait to wear that funny square shaped hat and bask in the glory of 5 1/2 college years.

Now...back to the grindstone.

I love that song, probably because the first time I heard it, my now husband was playing/singing it. Your cover is fantastic! What an original and fun study break. We would just play N64 or eat. and eat. and eat.

mmmk so a couple things: finals are muy muy terible. can you say six hour finance review session this weekend? ugh.

second thing: i think you should sing at my wedding, with john playing guitar and harmonica. let's plan.

third thing: your bun looks awesome. i haven't tried the bun yet, but i maybe will tonight. i'll be sure to report back, since i'm certain you want to hear all about it.

fourth thing: i am in love with this song. postal service pretty much defines my high school experience. i love iron and wine as well.

fifth thing: this was definitely good for my soul.

i can't wait to see more of the fabulosity i'm sure you've been up to when finals are over, lades!

OKAY so when I read "Bun in a Hot Place" I immediately did some math.

Hot Place = Oven.

Bun in Oven = Baby.

Wha BABIES??? WOOHOO!!!

But it was really a sweet cover with a rad bun.

I think I just want babies.

Also, I remember watching you strike a power stance and rock out to Spice Girls in my bedroom. Those were the days.

Stay golden...

Connie said...
