I rarely write these sort of catch up posts, but I find them fun to read and so today I thought I’d share just a little bit of what’s been going on in my life lately. You know, the kind of stuff we’d chat about if we were having lunch.
Lately, I’ve been really hungry for good books and so I’ve taken some advice from my friend Tara. First, I read The Girl on the Train, which was Tara’s suggestion. I really enjoyed it, even though I had a bit of a hard time believing the ending. Just this week I stayed up until 4am starting (and finishing) Big Little Lies. This book would be the perfect beach read in my mind. I loved it and think that Liane Moriarty might be one of my new favorite authors. I’ve just downloaded The Hypnotist’s Love Story from her as well. I will not start reading this at 11pm. I will not start reading this at 11pm… 🙂
I’ve had a desire to try my hand at baking more and so this week I’m going to attempt to make Oreo cupcakes. I’m just using a basic cupcake recipe with boxed cake mix for the cake part and then a simply cream cheese frosting. If it turns out good, I’ll share the recipe. If not, we never speak of this again.
The other thing that has been taking up way too much of my time is my obsession with this season (okay, let’s be honest, it’s every season) of The Bachelor. I truly love every crazy moment. This past weekend, the show aired for 3 hours on Sunday and then 2 hours on Monday. I’m not embarrassed to say that I watched it all. I won’t comment specifically in case you are catching up but I.love.this.season. There have been so many unexpected crazy moments and Chris is SO awful at…oh, you know, speaking. He is just awkward and honestly that makes it fun to watch. The other show I am loving is Empire. OH.EM.GEEEEE. Love love love it. Who else?
What’s on your radar now? Shows, books, food? Share it!
