I’ve seen other bloggers do a variation of what they are currently up to, so I thought I’d do the same thing since often it doesn’t fit anywhere else.
I’ve just recently started reading ‘Divergent.’ So far I’m a little on the fence, and I kind of hope the movie will be better than the book because I’m not quite understanding why it’s gotten so much hype as of yet. The plot is a little silly so far, and while I do know to take YA fiction with a grain of salt… the premise is more than a teensy bit ridiculous. Still… I’m going to finish it and see what happens because so far I’m waiting for what I hope is the real story, to begin. The whole “Divergence” thing is a little weak as of yet and not making sense. I won’t get into details, though, because I don’t know who has read the books/seen the movie.
Well, ‘Call the Midwife’ is done for the season… sadness, as are most shows. I find myself watching ‘Once Upon A Time’ for some reason now and then even if just to just roll my eyes a lot and marvel at the way they’ve ruined characters and stories. Drunk History is also something we recently started watching occasionally on Amazon Prime.
As far as movies go, we watched ‘Philomena’ not that long ago, and we both thought it was well done. Josh wasn’t that keen on watching it because it’s just not typically something he’d choose, but he agreed to watch it. I think we were both affected by the movie in different ways, but I think we both found it to be an emotional film, and there were times when my blood boiled and my heart broke for Philomena. Becoming a mom has definitely made me more emotional and so many movies hit harder than they ever would have before.
I kind of love peanut butter right now… so much so that I keep a jar at my desk at work and sometimes just eat it with a spoon. The Earth Balance coconut & peanut spread is kind of awesome. I’m also really addicted to the Everything Sesame Sticks from Nature Box. It’s a good thing we only get one bag of these a month, and that I can’t just go buy more at Target… or I would.
Our family photos, and the pictures the kids got at day care. I didn’t think we’d end up with so many great pictures to choose from! I’ll have to share some later.
Where to even begin? There are so many different thoughts swirling around in my head that it’s often hard to know which one to go with. Once again we’ve been talking about where we see ourselves in the next few years, and what our moving goals should be, but it’s still very much up in the air. Sometimes I don’t mind Minnesota all that much and think I can stick it out a while longer, and then I try to go outside and actually work on my garden and get swarmed by mosquitoes and wonder if we couldn’t just somehow move this year. :p I also never look forward to the long winters or the summer humidity, so while we definitely won’t be moving this year, it makes me wonder if we could make it happen next year… and then where? There are a lot of things I miss about Colorado, but at the same time we’re kind of thinking the Northwest might be nice, and then out of the blue we’ll talk about going somewhere completely random and different. So… we have a lot to consider and think about.
Sigh… Frozen. So much Frozen. It’s either listen to the Frozen soundtrack or the yelling/crying that follows if I say “No.” Considering I now know almost all the songs by heart… I’m not sure which is actually worse anymore.
Ahh now you know what I went through with Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast (although I really like that one too) Lady and the Tramp, etc, At least we had a lot of Disney movies to choose from but there were the favorites 🙂
Note to self: don’t read Divergent. And I love that Earth Balance spread also!!
