22840421Reading several books tbh but the one I’m picking up most frequently these days is My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows. It’s sort of historical fiction and sort of young adult fantasy and totally awesome. The writing is fresh and snappy and I love basically everyone in the book. Hysterical and thoroughly enjoyable. Featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.

Eating this end of summer pasta dish tonight. We haven’t had it in awhile but it’s one of my favorite things to cook. Cherry tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini, eggplant and garlic all get together to top whatever pasta you have on hand. Easy to cook and so delicious.

Watching The OC on CW Seed. How have I never watched this? I’m obsessed with this kind of soapy teen drama that has such fun blast from the past cameos and a surprisingly meaty story line. Also hooked on The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. You can also watch online at if you are ready to move onto other seasons.

Listening to whatever is on my phone’s playlist like Lost Boy by Ruth B which is my kids’ current fave song.

Thinking about getting rid of cable. I’ve been making spreadsheets and having lengthy convos with the hubs at night. We’re also trying to really up our diet and exercise game this fall.

Looking forward to school starting on Monday. I know a lot of my friends are ambivalent about the coming school year but I’m stoked to get back to a real schedule and looking forward to all the thing the new school year will bring. MM has a new teacher, I’m totally ready to start volunteering at the school again and getting into a regular exercise routine. We’ve had an awesome summer but it’s been long enough for me and I am ready for fall!

What have you been up to lately?
