What I've Been Up To
January 2015

I enjoyed a mostly uneventful January. It was nice to have some downtime for reading and binge watching. It's coming to an end though. Spring sports are about to be in full swing. Dain made a competitive baseball team, and Rory's playing soccer again. I'm in charge of cheer this year. We're already planning our budget, picking out new uniforms and have our first sign-ups in March. I'm guessing these updates are going to be shorter and shorter every month. Some months, I may just post a picture of a crying baby because that's probably how I'm going to feel.

What I've Been Reading

Frostfire, Amanda Hocking
Insurgent, Veronica Roth
All the Bright Places, Jennifer Nevin
Me Before You, Jojo Moyes

What I've Been Watching

I'm halfway through Season 3 of Gilmore Girls. I would have probably finished by now, but I started watching Friends again from the beginning. Yes, I've seen them all 100 times, but I don't care. It's still hilarious. Tony and I are trying to get through House of Cards before the new season starts. We really like it, but haven't made a lot of time to watch it. And I just started The Fall. So far so good...

What I've Been Listening To

Uptown Special, Mark Ronson
The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj
Title, Meghan Trainor
American Beauty/American Psycho. Fall Out Boy
Chapter One, Ella Henderson
The Pale Emperor, Marilyn Manson

What I've Been Laughing At

So, tell me, what have you been up to?

I am so happy you're only on Season 3 of Gilmore, granted you've seen it before but I was seeing people post that that they finished it and I was like... I'm still only in Season 2!!! I'm not ready to let Dean go and it's slowly coming ... (Jessie just wrecked her car and well, I'm sure the blow up isn't far behind.. and I just don't want to see a sad Dean... at all!!!! I've also heard that I shouldn't watch Season 5 from some big fans that say it really jumps the shark but I'm not quitter. Case in point I picked back up watching Once, after swearing mid way through Season 2 I was over it...

House of Cards has got to be one of my all time favorite dramas on TV, ever. I am excited for this next season, but fearful. Let's just say season 2 could have ended, as it did, as a series finale IMO. But I'm anxious to see what happens I Just hope it's not like Season 3 of The Killing... and my hubby and I only have one way we see House of Cards ending, to make us happy. We never agree so this is really odd ;)

I hope I was vague enough NO spoilers!!!

Otherwise... not much is new, I repainted my kitchen so there's that, but you saw the tweet so you already knew that ;)

I really need to download Meghan Trainor's album. I've heard only great things about it.

Great book picks! I've put All the Bright Places on hold at my library just now - thanks for the reco!

My book club read Me Before You for our last book. They're making it into a movie with Khalesi from Game of Thrones (not sure if you watch that so the actress is Emilia Clarke) and then Finnick from Hunger Games. I'm interested to see it on the big screen... We're reading Orange is the New Black this time, that's been slow but good.

One of my coworkers has gotten me addicted to watching those Jimmy Fallon lipsync battles... Can't wait to check this one out :)

I keep hearing about The Fall but have no idea what it's about. If you're watching, I probably need to check it out too. I like Meghan Trainor a lot, but can't help but feel like this will be it for her. I need to listen to the new Fall Out Boy.

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

I want to start The Fall! But is it gory so far? I'm just a baby when it comes to blood. Also, that Lip sync battle really just made my life.

Unknown said...

I want Nicki's album!! A friend just won a giveaway with some coffee cups from Gilmore Girls or quotes from it or something? So she keeps telling me I need to watch it since I didn't understand. I need to do like half your list!

I'm loving both the new Fall Out Boy and Marilyn Manson.

I've got two of those books on my "to read" list...maybe that means I need to check out the other two.

Unknown said...

Insurgent is a book that my teenager girl made me read a year ago. I loved it!

Interesting selection of books to read!
