Notes of Lately

Two things you need to know about Winter in Texas 2013: FLU and SNOW. I never think the CDC knows what they are talking about until I fall victim. And can we talk about snow twice in less than a month? I still hate being cold, but it was exceptionally sparkly and pretty today.

Things happening lately…

Snow day. Snuck one in of Jon clearing my car. He’s having so much fun doing me a favor, obviously! 🙂

Leftover Cocobon (um, hello Trader Joes best cheap red ever!) and homemade peanut butter cookies after an impromptu dinner with a friend. Also, my new placemats which I coveted at Target for several weeks. Luckily no one else wanted them so I snagged  a set of 4 for $8 on clearance.


Fedora for my honeymoon. I’m going to attempt to be a hat person. I’ll let you know.

Last weekend Jon’s mom and I had a girls day. Nails, lunch, shopping–things you’d expect. She got me the perfect honeymoon purse in my favorite colors (shades of white!) along with a few other great things for my birthday. Afterwards, we met up with Jon and his Dad for dinner and a few games of Rook. Jon and I both left saying that it was the most fun day we’d each had in a long time. That’s really how cool his parents are. On which note, I should add that I feel extra spoiled to have his parents as in-laws.



Books of late. Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and me was brilliant. A self-aware and honest memoir, without being self-pitying. I think for anyone who grew up with difficult parents, this would be incredibly close to heart. I just started both A Year of Biblical Womanhood and Miraculous. Thus far, the former is hilarious and the latter is…academic. I’m waiting for both to kick in. The massive World Poetry book was a $1 estate sale buy that is great for quick bedtime reading. It has everything you’d want and most of what you’d expect for an anthology of that sort.
