100 books in a year: Update 3

Pinned Image

I've just finished my 7th book 
*I'm slowing down*
but not for long
because my reading slump is over! 

I chose a book because it had been a #1 best seller
~Can't really go too wrong with that~

The Book Thief 

Marcus Zusak
~was wonderful~
and lovely
what more could you want from an afternoon with a paperback

reading slump....story strikeout

Credit: exit-sign

I am on a mission to read 100 books in a year
*hopefully more*
(we'll see)
but I am striking out on my book choices
my most recent reads weren't exactly bad....
(Mindy Kaling wrote the last good book I've read)
but the stories haven't captured me

you know the feeling when you finish a great book 
and you ache just a little...
I really want to feel that way about a book right about now

any suggestions?

My hair is going Grey Gardens

By common consent gray hairs are a crown of glory;
the only object of respect
that can never excite envy.

I plucked a grey hair out of my eyebrow today
it wasn't just kinda grey
or any form lighter than my natural color
it was super grey
**what the what**

Looks like I'm going to have to invest in some black gloves
red lipstick
and big ole pearls
because this is the look I'm going to go for

Parks & Rec + Breaking Bad = Parks and Meth

The boyfriend & I really enjoy watching 
we have a pact
*not to watch it without one another*
we only watch one episode at a time on netflix
to prolong the guilty pleasure

So when I came across a tumblr
with stills from Breaking Bad
I just had to share
It is awesomely hilarous


Ron: Leslie, what do we do when we get this angry?Leslie: We count backwards from 1,000 by sevens and we think of warm brownies.

Love poem love: Judith Viorst

Pinned Image

some advice from a mother to her married son | judith viorst

the answer to do you love me isn’t, “i married you, didn’t i?”
or, “can’t we discuss this after the ballgame is through?”
it isn’t, “well that all depends on what you mean by ‘love’.”
or even, “come to bed and i’ll prove that i do.”
the answer isn’t, “how can i talk about love when
the bacon is burned and the house is an absolute mess and
the children are screaming their heads off and
i’m going to miss my bus?”
the answer is yes.
the answer is yes.
the answer is yes.

2011 Halloween Costume :Dia De Los Muertos edition

(via photobooth)

**I love Halloween**
my costume scared the trick or treaters though
(and the puppies for a minute or two)
who knew that a little face paint
and a flower head band 
could make such a serious scary statement
