What I’m into this month – June 2011
on my nightstand: ‘The Hunger Games’ trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Let me tell you, this is some of the best fiction I’ve read in a long while. I finished the first one on a five-hour train ride to Istanbul. That’s how fast of a read it is. Now, if you can’t handle a little gruesome, I’d steer clear from these.;)
in my bible: all about me some Romans right now. Romans 8 has got to be some of my most favorite scripture.
on my television: as pathetic as it may be, I decided to watch an episode of ‘Hoarders’ this past week and since then I haven’t stopped watching it. It is so gross and addicting.
in my kitchen: aside from the bag of m&m’s I just received, it’s been all about clearing out long lost items from the pantry. I’ve decided to not buy anything else until I’ve cleared out all the noodles I have stocked up. A favorite has been a yummy apple and chicken salad croissant sandwich.
in my ears: I have a confession to make, I have a country station on my Pandora. Solely because of Sugarland’s ‘Stuck Like Glue’. It has such a great beat! I can’t believe I just admitted to listening to country music on the world wide web. I’m sure I’ve just lost some major cool points. I have been greatly into Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ also. Does that give me back some cool points?
and my own little add on, in my closet:
I finally got around to cleaning up my closet, getting rid of my ‘interim wardrobe’, i.e. clothes I bought while I couldn’t lose the baby weight. I got rid of 3 huge bags, which left my closet ready to be filled with fun new summer purchases.
|I had been on the lookout for new black pumps since mine were a little outdated. Found these at Mango and the heels were just right.|
|fun flats mama bought me at the airport on our out from Brazil. It’s just finally warming up enough that I can wear it with my fun skirts!|
|I’m in love with this shirt, specially the sleeves. It was a cheap little pazar find.|
|don’t look too closely. This is my first attempt at sewing a skirt. It will probably go down as the ugliest skirt in the world. But hey, I’m chasing a dream, and I won’t go down without a fight!|
|This is by far my most favorite and special purchase. A fresh new purse in a nice summery color, with a shoulder strap — a must when you are mother of a busy little boy.|
