Current Book
Burn Girl by Mandy Mikulencak isn't amazing, but it's holding my attention.
After that I'm starting the 944-page beast, City on Fire. Wish me luck!


Current Playlist
Hello - Adele
On My Mind - Ellie Goulding
Emperor's New Clothes - Panic! At The Disco
Used to Love You - Gwen Stefani
In The Night - The Weeknd
Love Me Like You Do - Little Mix
Toothbrush - DNCE
Magnets - Disclosure feat. Lorde


Current Color
Julep Michaela. I thought I'd love this blackcurrant micro glitter shimmer,
but it looks like sparkly mud to me. Boo.


Current Food
Russell Stover Chocolate Marshmallows. These are the best thing ever! I'm kind of addicted.


Current Favorite Shows
I haven't been watching much TV because I'm still doing the fall film challenge,
but I do love Scream Queens and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. 


Current Celebrity Crush
I'm not feeling anyone in particular at the moment. Zac is always my standby.


Current Excitement
Vegas! Misty and I will be there in three weeks to see Britney!
I haven't been in five years and this is Misty's first time in Sin City. Got any recommendations?


Current Movie
Steve Jobs. It's not a typical biopic. It's a three act play, taking place backstage in real time, and it's really fun to watch. Aaron Sorkin is my favorite and thought the cast was great. It's too bad it did so poorly at the box office. 


Current Wish List Item
Navy Hunter Boots. I actually bought these and returned them the next day.
I didn't actually need them and had major buyer's remorse.


Current Outfit
I've been living in this $20 sweatshirt from Forever 21. It's sooo soft and cozy!



Current Favorite Products
Julep's creme-to-powder eye-shadow sticks and creme-to-powder blush sticks.
How lazy can I possibly be? I love them though.



Current Need
Time alone! Just me in a hotel room with room service, a stack of books, and Netflix for a weekend. Jacob is totally out of commission after his knee surgery so I'm doing everything on my own. And it's worse than just taking care of the kids by myself because I'm at Jacob's beck and call and I have to drive all of us everywhere. To top it off, Milo got the stomach flu over the weekend, our oven broke, I've been working nights (to stay home and care for Jacob during the day) and my knee is killing me! (I tore cartilage last summer and it hurts every once in a while). Thankfully Jacob's back to work this week and the boys' coaches have both reduced practice to once a week. Now we're only at the field three days a week instead of five. I'm just so tired. 



What are you currently up to?

You totally need a weekend alone in a hotel room! Hang in there.

I've switched to pencil eyeshadows because of laziness.

I do not know any of those songs. At all. I do know most of the artists, though, so score one for me!

That is a lot on your plate and you definitely deserve some alone time and fun time in Vegas.

Karen Peterson said...

It sounds like you DESERVE some time off!

The only TV I have been watching has been The Walking Dead. I really want to check out Scream Queens, I just haven't had time.

And I'm still feeling meh about Steve Jobs. I know I *should* see it since it'll be up for a bunch of awards, but...eh. I just don't know. Part of the problem is that I don't love Fassbender. And another part of the problem is that I'm not all fascinated by Steve Jobs. And the other part of the problem is that I actually kind of hated The Social Network. I just don't know...

But I LOVE Adele's new song. Hello!!

Misty, Handbags + Handguns said...

I love the new Ellie Goulding song.

And obviously I can't wait for Vegas!!! I meant to say something in one of my emails, but the mob tour sounds cool. I'm definitely up for multiple adventures.

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

oh, a weekend alone in a hotel room sounds divine!!! i have been living in my sweats all week - it's too cold to dress up in a cute outfit!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

vegas!! i love vegas. i've been 3 times, the last time was our honeymoon (the only trip that i recapped on the blog, the others were pre-blog) but i don't really know much in the way of recommendations. we aren't big drinkers / gamblers, we saw a lot of shows, shopped and spent a lot of hours by the pool. it was fabulous. have fun! britney! jealous.

Tiffany said...

HANG IN THERE. Vegas will come sooner than you know it and you will have a vacation! Full of alcohol and Britney :)

Maybe treat yourself to those hunter boots for having such a challenging month! I'm a terrible influence.

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Hope you get a time-out soon. You so deserve it. Hang in there...I know, easier said {or written} than done. I got the same blush stick from julep...not bad at all. :)
