28 October 2016

I know Halloween isn't until Monday but how could I resist utilizing the most clever and creative post title of all time? I couldn't. 


1. Last year's costumes. We've got: Snow White, Dr. Bash, Superman, Salt, and a most enthusiastic pepper. Believe it or not I think this year will be even less impressive. Believe it or NOT.

2. Simon was out of town for one night this week and I was allll excited to rent and watch Bad Moms but then my bubble was burst because - it's not for rent yet. Oops. Did you see it? Love/hate/eh?

3. Speaking of screen time, Simon and I are still enjoying Poldark (or, "P. Diddy" as Simon's dubbed it) but I see a lot of ugly foreshadowing that is making me very nervous for what's to come. The nature of a good show, I suppose.

4. So, I've been pretty loyal to my gel topcoats (nail polish, not outerwear) but Jolie got me hooked on this fast drying topcoat and this basecoat. I'm going on 1.5 weeks, lots of bathing the kittens, and no chips. Fluke or favorite new polish combo? Time will tell but I'm thinking the latter.

5. Okay so on the book front - always exciting! Always. I listened to One True Loves and give it 4/5 stars - quick and easy and engrossing. I've moved onto the The Light Between Oceans (am I the last person to have read it?) and it's slow to start but not at all boring. Oh! I've kept my Audible membership to supplement Overdrive's occasionally lengthy waitlists and I'm a fan. Simon and I can share books and I can easily return books even if I listened to them all the way through and didn't like them.

6. Did you see that Kayla came out of blogging retirement? If only for one post - it still made my whole entire week. And I've been considering reading Outlander but now I think I gotta.

7. If you haven't already -- don't forget to enter the Rack Room + Lily Jade giveaways. They're good ones.

Have a great weekend and best of last minute costuming luck if you're anything like yours truly.

  2. My best friend since forever drove 2 hours to meet me to watch Bad Moms and we laughed until we cried..... there are some parts that are pretty raunchy.... but still laugh your butt off hilarious, especially if you can relate to the slacker mom type, which I most definitely can!! :-)

    1. Yep, I agree. Raunchy, but I still laughed. There are some really funny lines.

  3. Hi! Both links for the nail polishes are for the same topcoat, and I'm really curious about the basecoat.

    And I'm listening to the Hunger Games right now--I completely ignored them while they were all the rage because I really didn't think they sounded interesting, but I'm on the third one now and I have really enjoyed them!

  4. Not sure if your library has it or not, but if they do- check out Hoopla. Streaming audiobooks, ebooks, movies (lots for kids) also great audiobook selection for kids too. All downloadable to devices, etc.!

  5. I liked Bad Moms but probably because I snuck out of the house and watched in a theater with my girlfriends. It's pretty funny but maybe like 40 minutes too long! Worth a redbox for sure!

  6. I love your little salt.
    And read outlander. I started two months ago and then accidentally read all eight in a month. My poop neglected children. At least my husband was appreciative.

  7. Yes!!! Read Outlander!! As a caution, the first 250 pages move slowly, but then the story picks up and you can't stop. I ugly cried at the end of the 2nd book!

    Love salt and pepper, if only my kids would let me dress them!

  8. Ok I went and saw Bad Moms with a bunch of exMormon mom friends and I had my v first margarita beforehand which I think made me laugh a lot harder than I might have otherwise? But I really enjoyed myself.

    Also, I was wondering why my post had so many hits. This explains it. Ha! Thank you, friend.

  10. YES! Outlander is a MUST! Long, but oh so worth it. :)

  11. Outlander (OL to us junkies) is serious reading - as in, once you get into, you DO.NOT.WANT.TO.PUT.A.BOOK.DOWN, not even if the kids are howling - so beware.... I have lost count the # of times I've read all 8 books now.... On the plus side, I love not finishing a book in a day - these are long and last.

    Have tried Poldark, and am making myself get through book 1 - not a lover, need to check out the PBS series... OL's author Gabaldon has ruined me for reading all others!

  12. Read Outlander so you can join Kayla and I when we gush about it on twitter!

  13. I can't believe you haven't read Outlander!! I've read all of them. Some are slower than others - but the first few are the best.
