March has felt a lot like spinning tea cups. It’s been a month of “hold on tight, this could get nauseating” mixed with a lot of fun. We went on a Spring Break vacation with the kids, stressed out over holes in the house, got my son his first pair of glasses and fought violently with our printer. The weather keeps switching between warm sun … Continue reading What I’m Into Lately: March 2015
I’m all TGIF over here today. It’s been a long sniffly, coughing, sneezing week at my house with two kids that seem determined to hold onto the world’s tiniest cold for as long as possible. I’m grateful for two days of not having to worry if a minor case of the sniffles might keep my kids home from school again. While we celebrate surving another week … Continue reading weekly geekly (3.27.15)
I couldn’t resist playing along with this Disney Song Tag that Romance Novels for the Beach shared recently. The premise is basically adorable – ten questions about books based off some of the most popular Disney songs. Most of these survey tags are basically the same so I was excited to see something with a different take on an old favorite. Wanna play along – … Continue reading The Disney Song Tag Book Survey.
Here’s what I’m currently… Reading: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel for my book club on Wednesday. I’m only 1/3 through the book so my odds of finishing on time are not looking great. It took me awhile to get into this one but after the first 100 pages or so it starts to pick up. I’m still not crazy about the narration and sometimes the … Continue reading Currently.
I was in the 4th grade when I was told I needed glasses. I barely understood what I was walking into but I walked out with a death sentence. Odds of Being Cool Now: Zero I’m not sure if there were simply no stylish glasses to be found in the late 80’s-90’s or if a side effect to being basically poor was that we couldn’t … Continue reading A Rite of Passage: His First Glasses
I just got back from a geektastic spring vacation with the family and I’m still getting back into some semblance of a normal routine. While I attempt to wake up and talk myself into doing laundry, here are some cool things I’ve seen or read online recently. I kind of want to try this crazy coffee recipe at The Pioneer Woman but I’ll admit, I’m … Continue reading weekly geekly: the best of the interblag [3.22.15]
We went on vacation this week. Our kids have spring break a few weeks before the rest of the town. A fringe benefit to private education is having Spring Break all to ourselves I guess. That and the stellar education and lack of common core. Whatev. We stayed at the Mount Olympus Hotel Rome. I’m not sure I can recommend it in good conscience. We’ve … Continue reading Spring Break: Geeking out at the Wisconsin Dells
I’ve been having a season of book hoarding – great books coming at me at discounts I can’t pass up because: books. It’s the usual song and dance number: so many books, so little time. Right now I have some sure to be amazing books waiting to get in line for an opportunity to be The Next Book Jen Goes Fangirl Over. Contenders include: Yes … Continue reading The Top 10 Books Feeling Neglected on My Nightstand
