Current Books
I'm trying to wrap my head around the country these days. I just finished these and liked them both!


Current Playlist
Save Ferris - New Sound
The Weeknd - Party Monster
John Legend - Darkness and Light
Julia Michaels - Issues
Bruno Major - First Thing You See
Charli XCX - After the Afterparty
Bruno Mars - That's What I Like
Andra Day - Burn
Ed Sheeran - Shape of You
Zayn and Taylor Swift -  I Don't Wanna Live Forever

I can't help it, I really like this stupid song.
NOT the video though. Taylor's hair flipping is embarrassing.



Current Color
My house is feeling so dark and dreary lately. I want aaaaaall the white!


Current Food
The only thing I want to eat these days is a Jersey Mike's turkey and provolone sub.


Current Favorite Shows
I'm not going to get into all my favorite shows, but these are the new ones I added this season.


Current Need
Glasses. My prescription hasn't changed, but I need to upgrade. I've been getting Warby Parker glasses for the past five years or so, but think it's time to head back to a store. As much as I like their style and mission, the lenses are crap and I cannot keep them clean! I've used every kind of cloth and wipe under the sun and clean them with solution every morning, but they wind up streaky and greasy looking a few hours later. I've heard the same thing from a bunch of people, so I don't feel so crazy anymore.


Current Excitement
Texas! My friend and I are road tripping the Texas Triangle in two weeks!


Current Celebrity Crush
Dev Patel. He's an incredible actor that I've had my eye on since his days on a UK teen show
called Skins. (It's on Netflix and it's soooo good!) Plus, he's dreamy. Go see Lion!


Current Mood
Relieved? Maybe thankful is a better word. I just had surgery and can breathe again! And it's just in time for a jam packed month. Milo turns six tomorrow, his birthday party is this weekend, I have a hair appointment next week, both boys have doctor's appointments, Jacob and I are going away for a night, I'm babysitting my nephews, I have a mani/pedi scheduled, I'm helping at both kids' Valentine's parties and a school fundraiser, and then I'm going to Texas for a week. Whew! I've got a lot of good, fun, happy stuff on my plate, but it's hard to look forward to it when I'm worried about taking it slow because I can't catch my breath.


Current Movie
Sing Street is delightful! It's one of those movies everyone will love. Get the soundtrack too!


Current Wish List Item
An Airfryer. It's lame, but Jacob and I decided to start cooking more and this would be fun to play with.


Current Favorite Product
Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I got this from Influenster and actually really like it. It doesn't have a scent, it's not too heavy, it absorbs quickly, and a little goes a long way. Other reviewers aren't loving it though, so don't take this as a recommendation. But I have sensitive skin and it's working for me.

Did the Strangers book help you understand anything? I am not understanding a GD thing right now.

MFD feels the same about Warby Parker lenses.

I keep hearing about the airfryer.

Mattie @ Northwest Native said...

Shape of You is my favorite song right now! Dev is totally dreamy and I really want to see Lion! That Aquation moisturizer sounds super similar to the moisturizer that I use on my face and I love it, so I'd probably side with you on it.

Thank you for reminding me to check out the new Save Ferris! Also very much love Cory Booker and should probably also read his book...

I started The Good Place last night! But I fell asleep. Not because of the show but because I was up past my 930 pm bedtime!

omg can we just talk about how brilliant Skins was?? I still watch it now and again on Netflix, really just the first two seasons. So good. I've been a slacker on oscar movies--which is so not me--but lion is on the list!!

Misty said...

Love This Is Us and The Good Place! I already watched The Good Place a 2nd time.

I like the Taylor and Zayn song a lot too. I haven't seen the video.

holy crap. it's FEBRUARY. i know we talked about your coming here, and somehow i fucking forgot. because you know, i'm a lunatic like that. :]

i'm so excited! WHEE!

that said... you're coming to texas in february. i know you're thinking it'll be so much warmer here. pack a jacket.

jenn said...

course i said that, and i'm looking at weather.com and seeing that for the next ten days, temps'll fluctuate from the mid sixties to the high seventies. shit started blooming in january, and i can't recall that EVER happening before. it's a freak thing. usually it's forty degrees and misty twenty-four/seven in february.

pack a jacket, but you might not need it.

like i said... lunatic. :]

Ooooooh, I'm excited to read about and see your Texas adventures. Make lots of posts on your social media!

I didn't even know that Taylor and Zayn had a song together. I'm old. At least I know who Taylor and Zayn are, right?

I need to see Sing Street. You told me this already, but I agree.

Hahah my friend's sister just got an airfryer for Christmas and is obsessed! #fryeverything I love Dev Patel, and now need to check out Skins. Also love This Is Us, but couldn't get into The Good Place. (Also, unrelated, but what did you think of Santa Clarita Diet?) Good to know about Warby Parkers- I'm in the market for some new glasses and was actually looking into those! I've never heard of the Texas Triangle but that looks awesome- have a great trip!

Totally my fave Jersey Mike's sandwich! I love that my parents got me a gift card for there...and Taco Bell and In-N-Out. Lol says a lot about me. And Save Ferris is playing down here next month I believe. I used to LOVE them!
