My Many Musings…

happyfriday

Happy Friday indeed! Now, for most people it’s the end of your week, your saving grace that you’re able to rest for a couple days, have some BBQs and enjoy sleeping in. However, for me, my weekend is Mon/Tues, so I’m just now getting in the groove of my week and headed in for a busy weekend at that at the bridal store. But here’s to you and “Happy Friday!”

Favorite-Outfit-Pin

My favorite pin of the week!  Make sure you check out my pinterest, because I’m probably pinning about 4/5 times a day. I do it while I walk my dog, blog, eating breakfast, and when I’m trying to find inspiration for just about anything. I’m a pinning feign.

New book club read and it’s an easy read at that. If you liked The Other Boleyn Girl, you’ll definitely like it. I just started but so far so good!

Jay-Gatsby

Speaking of book club, the three of us girls in my own book club had our first outing together and we went to see The Great Gatsby. First of all, I was a fan of Leo before, but now, whew! Those eyes (sigh) and all of his choices and expressions were awesome and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I was a little nervous about it, since I was really annoyed by Daisy’s character in the book, but surprisingly the movie left me feeling exactly like I think it should have. There’s so much hope and fun in the beginning and then in the end…well I don’t want to ruin it if you haven’t seen it or read the book. Read the book, go see the movie.

Again, Happy Friday!

My Many Musings…

birchbox

As a gift, I’ve been given three months of Birchbox. It’s possibly one of the best gifts you can give a girl, especially a blogger girl.  Birchbox sends you 4-5 samples of new products in a small little box once a month. Sometimes I get a hot new nail polish or others the most amazing lip balm that makes my lips feel perfect as soon as it’s on. Try it for yourself. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg at all! 10$/month! Sounds like a win, and for me, it most certainly is.

rumikub

After my last post on Friday, Devin and I had a double date night with some friends and ended the night with some hard core games of Rumikub. Never played it? or even worse, never even heard of it??? It’s an instant obsession. Better get your game face on!

boyband

Birthday Girl, Liz, decided Korean BBQ and karaoke was what she wanted to celebrate with, and I can honestly say there was some stumbling and some really bad singing going on. The best part of the night was definitely when all the boys got together for the perfect boy band show down and sang some Backstreet Boys “Everybody.” ….uhh, yah.

bookclubnight

Oh gosh, go ahead and say it, I’m completely domesticated. I know, I know. But let me say that being part of a girl’s night book club has been one of the best things of this new year. We agreed to read Hope, A Tragedy, which was great. Comedic and interesting, an easy read, but some say pretty controversial. I think, read it for yourself and you can say what you like. It was great getting to know the girls more, and everyone’s contributions to the menu were fantastic. Fruit plate, veggie plate (not pictured), kale salad, and a lemon tart topped with raspberries for dessert was totally on par. We had a wonderful time sharing our thoughts on the reading material and can’t wait for the next on April Fool’s Day! We are scheduled to read The Great Gatsby, (uh, already started and can’t put it down. WHY haven’t I read this before!), and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, a heartwarming story about a mute boy and his dog companion. Lookin’ forward to it ladies!

eyeexam

I think it was about time for some new glasses. I ran out of contacts about a month or so ago and have been wearing my glasses since. I like my glasses but I feel pretty dorky sometimes when I constantly have to push them back up on my nose. However, found this wonderful little place close to home, and not only were they THE sweetest people alive, the doc told me my eyes have not only changed prescription, but they have actually gotten better! Woot Woot! Go eyes! Not that there was a dramatic change, but enough to make me feel good about it considering family history. 🙂 And while waiting to check out, I found a few eye glasses that struck my fancy. I love glasses. There’s something so smart about them. A little sophistication if you will. And I will! I found some Vera Wang’s that I love! I pick them up tomorrow! 🙂 I feel smarter already. I mean more smart. 😉

Book Club!

Ironic really how you meet people, and how small this world really is. Sitting on the plane on my way to Texas for the holidays, I sit next to a charming couple doing the same.  They happen to be about my age, in the industry, one of their good friends is a good friend of mine from an acting class, and then to top it all off, they’re just genuinely awesome people. Talked the whole flight, and said our goodbyes promising to be in touch in the new year. However, not before Tiffany explained to me how much she wanted to start a book club, and here I was thinking no one would do that with me.  I realize how domesticated and bookworm I sound, but to be honest, I kinda like it. 🙂 So all in all, I invited Merrill, Steph, and a sweetheart I just met, Julz, to join in and everyone’s game!

Thanks to Tiffany’s first book choice, Hope, A Tragedy, we are reading a funny and quite amusing tale of a man who reluctantly climbs into his attic because he fears the tapping sound he hears is mice, when it turns out to be a very old Anne Frank. ???? Right?  Can’t wait to finish and talk about this one! Perhaps you will enjoy it too. Try it. Why not?
