Reading… Of Mess & Moxie by Jen Hatmaker. I follow Jen Hatmaker on Facebook and almost always laugh at loud at her posts. I listened to the audiobook of this one. I think I would have enjoyed it better if I had read it myself. It’s kind of disjointed – which probably works well as written word but was a little too much for me in audio format (especially at 2x speed).
Watching… Wonder. I really enjoyed this book a few years ago and have been looking forward to seeing the movie. I finally saw it last weekend. I had forgotten that a dog named Daisy dies in the story (this is a minor part of the story). That hit a little too close to home. I miss my crazy girl.
Listening to… This is Love podcast. I am a huge fan of Phoebe Judge’s Criminal. She has the kind of voice that I could listen to for hours. This is a different turn from Criminal but in a way kind of similar. They take a story and come at it from a slightly different angle. This is definitely going to automatically go on my playlist each week.
Crushing on… this light fixture. I visited the open house for the Pink Cube over the weekend. It is so cute and an inspiration for what I want my house to look like. I was surprised to find quite a bit of inspiration in a small closet. The closet had a similar setup to mine; it was decorated really cute and had this fabulous light fixture. I’ve been searching but have yet to find anything very similar online.
Loving… the Dyson V8 Cordless Vac. With the help of a gift card and a President’s Day Sale, I pulled the trigger on the vacuum that I mentioned wanting earlier this month. I’m in love! I’m not sure how I would feel about it if my house were larger, or filled with carpet – but for my setup, it’s nearly perfect. I love that I don’t have to mess with cords. I don’t have to use a hose to clean the stairs or under things. I think my house is going to be a lot cleaner going forward. If you are thinking about getting one, I would keep an eye on the price. It seems to fluctuate quite a bit.
