    July 2019 Favorites

      Well, this summer is truly flying by and I’m not too happy about it. Why do summers always fly by? Especially as a teacher? There was so much I wanted to do this summer – a lot more writing than I’ve done (which is close to nothing), but I have a little bit of time left to maybe at least start my project and not be a total waste. Anyway, let’s get to my July favorites. There have been a few things this month that I didn’t just really like, but I seriously loved and became maybe, slightly obsessed with. First up, Pepperidge Farm Sausalito Cookies. It’s been a long…

    Keanu Reeves – Binge Watch

    I’ve been on summer break from work for 2 weeks now and while these past 2 weeks have been pretty busy (mainly with lots of appointments that I didn’t have time for during the school year) I have started to have some time to just watch tv and not do anything. In the past 4 days I have had an unintentional (or maybe intentional) Keanu Reeves marathon. I watched John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2 and all 3 Matrix movies. This led me to want to write a post about how much I love Keanu Reeves! So I haven’t seen all his movies, but I’ve seen a good amount. I’ve…

    June 2019 Favorites

    I can’t believe it’s July! I only have a few favorites to share from June and they’re pretty random so let’s get to it. Okay, for some reason the last few weeks of work this school year (meaning the first two weeks of June) I was eating the same thing for breakfast every morning on my way out the door – peanut butter on bread. Not toast – just bread. I think I was on a peanut butter kick and it was easy to just spread some peanut butter on bread, put it on a paper towel, run out the door, and eat it in the car on my way…

    Game of Thrones: The Final Season & The Last Watch

    Now that we’ve had a week and a half to digest the final episode of Game of Thrones and the documentary, The Last Watch, has aired I’m ready to share my thoughts. First, let’s talk about the documentary. If you didn’t watch The Last Watch, I highly recommend it. I only got around to watch it yesterday because I was away over the weekend, but if you’re a GoT fan then it is well worth the 2 hour watch. It gives you a behind the scenes look at the final season – focusing on the production process, prosthetics, costumes, visual and special effects, extras, sets, etc. You think you know…

    April 2019 Favorites

    April flew by in a flash and I guess because of that I only have a few favorites this month. Of these few favorites a few of them have to do with entertainment, one is a skincare item, and one is an experience. Let’s get all the entertainment things out of the way first. This is technically from March, but I didn’t watch it until April so that’s why it’s an April favorite. On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and a few members of The Roots filmed themselves singing “In the Still of the Night” under the Brooklyn Bridge as an homage to doo-wop. I loved it! Next up, a…

    I Finally Saw Coco

    If you know me, you know I love movies and tv. I pride myself in being well versed in a variety of genres. When I was looking at this article about the 50 Best Movies on Netflix Right Now I had seen a good handful of them, but there were a few I hadn’t seen. One being Coco. The Disney movie Coco came out 2 years ago and I just watched it for the first time last night. I know – super late to the game. I love Disney movies and pretty much everything Disney. So why did I wait so long to watch this well-loved movie? To be honest, I was…

    March 2019 Favorites

    Another month coming to an end, can you believe it? We’re a 1/4 of the way through 2019 already! Yesterday, I had an early spring photoshoot with Lauren and I can’t wait to see all the photos and share some with you. Until then and since today is the last day of March, I’m sharing just a few favorites from this month. I actually don’t have that many to share, so this should be quick! First up, my new robe. I wanted a 2nd robe for the days when my other robe is in the wash. I saw this Top Shop light blue plush robe with cute rainbows on it…

    5 Favorite Sandra Bullock Movies

    The other day Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she has this thing where she purposely won’t watch movies that are super popular. Just something in her won’t allow her to do it. I think she even joked that she needs to see a therapist for her desire to “withhold joy” from her life. Funny thing is, I can be the same way! Yes, I love movies and tv and if it’s something I really want to see then I will see it. But a lot of times when I haven’t gotten to see something and then everyone is talking about how amazing it is – it loses its appeal to me. It’s…

    January 2019 Favorites

    This month has both felt like it’s flown by and dragged on. I can’t believe it’s the last day of January, but at the same time the holidays and winter break feels like ages ago. Anyone else feel that way? As with the end of every month, I’m sharing my monthly favorites today. Let’s get started! First off, Outlander came back for season 4 back in November, but I didn’t catch up until this month. I’m still 3 episodes behind, but the season finale has just aired over the weekend. Now I need to decide if I want to hurry and watch those 3 episodes or if I want to savor…

    Rent: Live (Sort of)

    Did you catch Rent: Live on Sunday night? I watched it but since it didn’t end until 11 I wasn’t able to get a post up recapping my thoughts on it until today. So why do I have “Sort of” in the title? Well, when the show started there was a little caption in the corner that said “pre-recorded” and I wondered why. Was there something about the opening number that warranted it to be pre-recorded? After doing a quick search online I found out that one of the lead actors, Brennin Hunt, who plays Roger broke his foot the night before at the final dress rehearsal! It would later be…
