back on track

7 things that made me happy this week . . .

one: quality family time. silliness and all.

two: the movie arthur. just as delightful as i had imagined. i love russell brand.

three: finishing this book. now i want to buy the audiobook just so i can listen to tina read it. expect a full review sometime this week.

four: the preview for this movie. loved the book, but until now, i was unsure of the casting choices for the movie. now i'm totally psyched.

five: these chips. i used to be a huge fan of ruffles cheddar and sour cream, but kettle chips just knocked it out of the park!

six: finding these two recipes from giada at home that i am itching to try.

seven: this post by my old friend adrienne from college. why i don't eat meat summed up so beautifully. and some good thinking about veganism, too.


. . . and 3 that didn't

one: needing a good camera but having neither the camera knowledge nor money to do so. boo.

two: realizing that i have been reading far too many books set in World War II and that i need to get out of my rut. on the horizon: half the sky, water for elephants, delirium, beautiful darkness, and a kurt wallander book. what have you been reading lately?

three: trying to find non-toxic sunless tanner. does it exist? i think not.



also: thank you for all of your kind words last week. i should put up pictures more often! but probably not, since that picture took me about 30 attempts with photobooth. so awkward.

Hey Brit! Was Arthur really good?? That's so funny because Aaron wanted to go see that this weekend but I totally wasn't feeling it. Maybe next weekend :) And soooo excited to see Something Borrowed!

Oh yeah, and I use Jergens Natural Glow daily moisturizer....is that toxic??
