It started to really feel like it should be Friday on Wednesday morning so ... happy fake Sunday (may the best team win!) or real Friday.

For career day at school a few weeks ago Julia was dead set on being a doctor and a mom but pulled a fast one on us when it came time for game day and decided she was better suited for the life of a ballerina (twin prop and all ) ...


... get it, twirlfriend.

And now for my next and only trick ... I'll throw a bunch of fun (that you've maybe already seen on Facebook) your way.

In a time where blogging seems to have been swallowed (not quite! but almost!) whole by social media ... it's so fun to find a new blog to devour. Julie's fit's that bill juuuuust fine.

I keep seeing this new makeup concept pop up and am super tempted to try them out. I just might. I'll let you know.

Forever knocking it out of the park, B. 

This was fun - what to give up during Lent based on your personality type (oh so shamelessly stolen from Jenna!)

Fran suggested this book to me and since she never steers me wrong I loved it and now there's a movie ... hoping they'll change the ending but I'm going to guess that's a big fat no. I'm going to have to read the sequel while twiddling my thumbs waiting for June.

Do you listen to podcasts? I generally don't BUT someone suggested this one yesterday and now .. I'm hooked. Let me know if you have a favorite. Pretty please?!

Phoebe's current staple (and sensible: leopard) shoes are on clearance right meow.
 
Okay, Sebastian just told me he needs a knife or "half a scissors" because he found a snake outside SO that's my cue to G-O.

Have a good one.

  3. The sequel After You is already out! I read it on my Kindle! It's good, not as good as the original but still read worthy!

  6. I love J's shoes - do they make those in old people sizes?

    I do ipsy for makeup and like getting surprises in the mail every month - it's helped me expand my (very very very very limited) horizons a bit!

  8. My current favorite podcasts are: What Should I read Next, The Simple Show, and CraftLit. I love them for listening to during the kids' (not so) quiet time!

  18. I think I have too many favorite podcasts, but here's my list of favorites: http://www.somethinggoodblog.com/2015/12/best-podcasts-for-traveling.html

    I've also started listening to "This is Why You're Single" and they're hilarious!

  19. Oh man, so many podcasts. I really love the "pregnancy perfect" podcast because I'm a sucker for birth stories, and the longest shortest time because it's all about families. Also, I love Stowaway makeup. I haven't tried their BB cream yet and I used up the mascara kinda quickly, but everything else has been fantastic! Definitely my favorite lipsticks.

  20. I've recently got into listening to podcasts! It's nice while doing laundry, cooking or editing. Chris' co-workers had me hooked on Serial: Season 1. It's free to listen to. It covered a real life murder case of someone that was possibily wrongfully convicted (after I listened I wasn't convinced, but still interesting case).

  21. I second, Mystery Show, for a fun and entertaining podcast. :)
