Forgot what this holiday’s all about? ….you’re not the only one

I found two podcasts from one of, if not, my favorite speakers in the world. Greg Laurie talks about how Christmas can be the easiest time to lose sight of the actual celebration – God’s gift – his son – Jesus. Enjoy!

The Man who tried to stop Christmas

The wonder of Christmas

We both want to wish you a Merry Christmas and safe travel through this holiday season. God Bless

You’re watching City TV

Hey all you City TV watchers! Just wanted to ask if you could let us know if you see us on City TV. As we were Christmas shopping the other day, a couple guys with cameras stopped us and asked us to introduce and do a couple shout outs for City TV. Of course having nothing to do… in a mall… in December… during Christmas hours – we said yes. Please let us know how stupid we look.

For all you supernatural fans – you might see us. We did an intro for the show that you have to see. We don’t have cable TV so we don’t know what the final product will look like. In short, the Supernatural promo Danelle is under a white table cloth pretending to be a ghost. It was hilarious. Let us know!

Peace,

MIA – Literally – but enjoy! FURNACE BROS RETURNS

Hey guys, I’m sure that if you know us two, then you know that we are totally hooked on 24. Since moving to our new home we made a decision not to have cable TV. I seriously went through withdrawal the first couple days but got through it. A few months into our new home, sans TV, our great friends Joel and Amy (and Gracie) introduced us to a new drug called 24. It was probably one of, if not, the most addictive show that we have ever seen, since Saved by the Bell. We have finished the first 2 season and are now ready to watch the 3rd.

Through word of mouth, we have heard that the 3rd season is the best (we still have to wait and see). So, being on vacation and having nothing else to do – Danelle and I have decided to watch the 3rd season in real time. Yes that’s right – we are going to experience 24 as Jack experiences it. We won’t need sleep. The first two seasons we had to literally stop ourselves from watching it. 24 is just that good!

We are going to be incommunicado from watching and resting, so we just wanted to leave you with something to watch for yourselves. This was a video I made – long before rad studio was even a dream, let alone a thought. It was for 2 good friends of mine. He was in a ‘band’ and had to leave because he was getting married – true story. They played this at the wedding and everybody (supposedly) loved it =) – We hope you enjoy it as well! Feel free to leave comments!

Sorry for the compression, I don’t have time to fix it- I need to watch 24! Be blessed

closed for the holidays

rad studio is now closed for the holidays. You can all still reach us through email, but please be aware that we will only be checking at 10am on Monday-Wednesday and Friday.

We both hope that you take this time to spend with your families, reflect on this past year, and look forward to the amazing things that will happen in your life for 2008. We will be back in action in January. Until then keep checking the blog for our holiday posts, which we will attempt to blog every other day. Keep safe and God bless.

Merry Christmas!

Yup… Still Resting… At Least Attempting To…

Although I’ve been receiving cute little emails and messages, regarding my blog posts for this month, I must say resting is good. Ral and I are actually still working because we have decided to get serious about some top secret stuff so, let’s just say I’m resting as I work…? I’ll be back –

December 6th | Rest.

no image people, I’m resting.

December 6th: Rest

As we prepare ourselves for our favorite day of the year, Ral and I have realized that some R&R is essential to finding balance. We’ve been busy all year as life happens everyday but getting time to slow down and actually enjoy time for what it is during a period of “rest” is actually quite exciting. As many of you know, Ral and I have only been married for a little over a year and a half. It’s great that we work together (we’re best friends – good times) but really appreciating him as my husband before my business partner has helped keep every day fresh and exciting. Rest has enabled me to study him more closely and get to know him better… well, I mean it’s been almost 10 years of deciding to fall in love but getting to know him as a husband has made me more and more interested in this life long commitment of love and teamwork – aka “marriage”. Did you know he has a mole on the side of his head? Ya, I just found that out as I was watching him… our computer screens are getting less and less attention as the atmosphere of peace and the ability to rest permeates our home. So here is our game plan during this period: sleep (very much needed), grande peppermint mochas at Starbucks, Christmas shopping at odd times during the day, decorating our home (at least a few sections of it),watching movies and catching up on 24 with our potential apprentice, Jack Bauer (to name just a few off the top of my head). Oh, and spending time with family and friends (some believe we’ve fallen off the face of the planet)… I actually would like to rest now so toodles, we’ll write more when we can!

rest… you’re awesome!

* thanks for tolerating my sentence errors… see, I do need rest. ral’s looking through what I’ve been writing and drawing and thinks Josh Groban looks like he has a jheri curl.

December 5th | Carbs

December 5th: Carbs

As we all gear up for the Christmas season, we cannot forget to enjoy the abundance of food that we come across at every pastry shop as we do our Christmas shopping, every Christmas party we attend and every bowl of mashed potoatoes or mac and cheese on those cold narly days. But I just wanted to give a womanly shout out to my ex-best friend. Carbs, although you’ve always been there for me when I needed you, I have to say our friendship is a bit unhealthy. Ral and I are actually on a diet plan now so carbs are on a bit of a timeout… as much as I’d really like a honey cruller… protein is where its at right now. Carbs can come visit in about a week and a half.

Although I said all those things about you to Ral,

Carbs… you’re rad.
