Lately.

You guys, I’ve been busy lately. I mean when I’m not busy chasing around a crazed toddler or going to another park, I’m doing the things I really enjoy, like watching movies and reading and listening to good music and drinking delicious things. And because I’m a giver, I’m going to share what I’ve been up to:

Watched
Me Before You: OH HELLO EMOTIONS. I recently read the book so I knew what I was getting into, but man, my hormones/emotions/feelings were in full overdrive with this one. I loved the chemistry of Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin and the story overall. It somehow got terrible reviews but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Dope: I had this one on my Netflix queue for a long time and finally got around to watching it. And it was SO GOOD. It was funny, it was poignant, it was well done. I definitely recommend checking this one out.

Sicario: OH HELLO STRESS, NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN. Need a movie to keep you on your toes a bit? Here you go. The storyline was a little complicated for me, but I caught on. And it was a good movie from start to finish.

While We’re Young: If you need a movie to make you think about your life’s choices, this one’s for you. The cast is great, the storyline is borderline funny but also, a slight bit depressing.

The Nice Guys: I snort laughed more than once. Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe are the most unlikely yet highly entertaining comedic duo. Overall it was a pretty hilarious action comedy and the 70s style was excellent.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War: Chris Hemsworth. Literally the only reason I watched this movie.

Read:
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. I really enjoyed this one. The way the story is written goes back and forth between characters and a major event. It’s fascinating to see how it all intertwines and the relationships of all the characters. So far I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every Liane Moriarty book I’ve read and this one is another.

Every children’s book about trucks. If you want recommendations, I’ve got em. My child is truck obsessed, hence we keep finding new books about trucks.

Listening:
The Hamilton Soundtrack. Hi, I’m here now. I caught up with everyone. And I listen to “Satisfied” at least twice a day. I look forward to actually seeing this show one day.

Matisayhu. Thanks Pandora. This man’s feel-good music is lifting me up. And I love it. Particularly “Sunshine,” that is my favorite and on constant repeat.

Drinking/Eating:
Pumpkin Spice Coffee from Trader Joe’s. HALLELUJAH.
Gluten free pumpkin pancakes from Trader Joe’s. HALLELUJAH.
Red wine. All of it. (Well not really, but I just got six bottles to review and I’m real excited about it)

 

What are you watching/reading/listening to/drinking/eating these days?

 

happy tuesday!
