    loving lately

    I was working on a different post for today but it was kind of whiny and blah so I scrapped it and am throwing together a Friday Favorites/Five/ Fwhatever the kids are calling them these days. I recently got the unexpected but fantastic news that Supermarket Sweep 2000 is now on Amazon Prime. Be still my nostalgic heart. If there’s one thing I love it’s watching people in pastel sweatshirts tear ass around a fake supermarket, hurling gold foil wrapped hams in their cart like their lives depend on it. LOVE IT. Speaking of TV, Netflix has revamped Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. I’m obsessed. I loved the original…

    reading habits tag!

    By now everyone should know that I love a good survey and am constantly on the hunt for them. A few days ago I was watching my usual YouTube videos and in my subscription box a video from Samantha March popped up and it was a reading habits tag video. My two favorite things – books and surveys! It seemed different enough to spice it up a bit around here so here we go! 1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading? Usually my couch or in bed. The East wing of my house is closed for renovations so until that’s done, I don’t have much of a…

    book talk!

    No matter how many times she entered it, Dolly never lost her sense of awe at the sheer majesty of Central Park. To her it was like its own city within a city, or perhaps more of a kingdom, the kind of place where there should be a castle in the middle, complete with a moat and drawbridge and a turret soaring to the clouds with a pretty lady fair peeking from the window. -“Searching for Grace Kelly” by Michael Callahan I mean, there is a castle in Central Park, but no moats, drawbridges or ladies fair. Central Park is quite magical, though. It’s like those elusive “traveling pants” whenever you…

    Late (as usual) Friday Five!

    We made it through another week! Let’s keep the good times rolling and get right into my Friday Five, shall we? I like to change my phone case every couple of months and it’s getting to that time so I was on the hunt for a new one. Somehow I stumbled across this one and I need it. Like, right now. Did you ever? I would have bought it right then and there but I refuse to spend $25+ on a phone case because, Amazon. #sorrynotsorry My other reasoning was that I wanted these two also and I definitely was not spending that much money on cellphone cases. I found…

    Blogtober14 Day 25: favorite books!

    Take a dive in to day 25! Day 25 is exciting for me because we’re talking about my other obsession – BOOKS! I’ve loved the thrill of a new book since I was able to hold them. My favorite day of the school year was the book sale; and those Scholastic book flyers were like puppies and kittens and Lisa Frank stickers. Remember them? Ahh childhood. So what I was the only one who ordered that month? At least I had something to read while  everybody else played sports or socialized or whatever it was that the kids were doing. Thanks to that monthly magazine of magic (see what I…
