I really thought I was going to do SO MUCH READING during my spring break last week. Instead, I did basically zero reading. I got through literally one and one half chapters of a book. Lame.
But I downloaded Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair from Audible. It’s narrated by Colin Firth, so, yeah, that was a no-brainer. It’s every bit as beautiful as you would imagine.
I’m playing around with infused waters. If you have any recipes you love, please send them my way!
Totally listening to the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack these days. What can I say? I still have my CD from the 90s and somehow it hasn’t worn out yet!
So, you know how I’m going to India and Nepal this summer? Well, I am taking my fancy camera, plus plan on taking my laptop, which is a big old fat laptop. I need a solid backpack to carry both and have found some awesome anti-theft types like this one:
The only problem is that I need this to hold a 17-inch laptop and I can only seem to find up to 15.6″. So if you have any recommendations, please let me know!
All the healthy recipes. And also workouts for this very lazy girl.
This isn’t really a “triumph” so much as just something new I’m doing now that I’m excited about. I’ve joined the Circuit Breaker podcast from Awards Circuit. It’s so much fun! I guested a few times and then two weeks ago Clayton asked me to join in on the regular. I love it and would be so happy if you’d give it a listen.
If you aren’t on Letterboxd, you’re missing out. It’s super fun. You can follow me over there and check out what I’m watching. So far this year, I’ve watched these:
- Beauty and the Beast
- Get Out
- Table 19
At this point, my favorite is Split, but I know that will change soon enough.
I bought my DSLR in the spring of 2014 and almost immediately saw a million posts about how I needed to get a 50mm lens immediately. Of course, I didn’t. I bought two lenses, one that is like 18-55 and the other that is 50-300. They’ve been fine for me over the years, but I have wanted that 50mm for three years. I finally bought it. It showed up yesterday. I can’t believe how lightweight it is! Looking forward to playing with this thing!
I love ALL THE TV!
Okay, fine. I watch all the TV, but a lot of it is not that great. But some of it is amazing. Let’s take a look:
- The Goldbergs (always and forever)
- Big Little Lies (OMGSOGOOD!)
- This Is Us (WHY IS IT OVER??)
- The Walking Dead (this show is starting to feel like a boyfriend who isn’t terrible, but isn’t great and you just keep him around because it’s comfortable)
- Black-ish (so funny!)
- Speechless (surprising)
- Bates Motel (delightfully soapy)
- Feud: Bette and Joan (even more delightfully soapy!)
Current Celebrity Crush
Both of these guys right here.
All the heart eyed emojis for Sterling K. Brown and Justin Hartley.
I’d also add Milo Ventimiglia.
Looking for some good indulgences right now because I just started a weight loss challenge with some friends on Facebook.
Jeggings and a Lularoe Irma top. With flip flops because it’s springtime in California. Even if it’s only 55 degrees right now.
Current Banes of My Existence
Wake-up alarms. I wanna snooze!
An interview opportunity that could be happening very soon. No, not a job interview. More of the celebrity variety…
Sleepy. Is that a mood?
How about…optimistic. Good things are coming. I can feel it. Can you?
