- Today is one of my best friend's birthdays and since she reads my blog, I wanted to give her a shout-out! She's also a big reader and though we are on opposite sides of the country and I can't be with her, I am thinking of her.
- Friday was a very crummy day for me at work-someone who I thought was going to be in was not and someone else who would have been helpful was not in though at least I knew that person was going to be out. It was very draining.
- However I came home that day to discover that my Shoe Dazzle order had arrived in less than 48 hours so that really perked me up.
|Am currently breaking in these 4.25" heels!|
- Plus I'm taking tomorrow off from work in order to do a bit of shopping, errands, and reading! Of course I had forgotten about the Dewey readathon but I can do my own mini one tomorrow.
Another loss for my softball team-we really aren't that bad but we seem to struggle to get those outs while our opponents never do. There's no Man U game this weekend :( and my Phillies didn't make the playoffs so I've just got the Eagles and Flyers to concentrate on right now.
I'm Obsessed With:
Lorde's "Royals" (I also like "Tennis Court" and "Team" and plan to listen to more songs as soon as I can stop listening to those three!) Has anyone else been listening to this song nonstop? I loved learning that she was the first female solo artist to top the Billboard Alternative Songs chart since the year she was born and hope to see more women blowing up the charts with their exciting music.
Week to Come:
This week is a bit different as I will open with some thoughts about The Scarlet Pimpernel, a book Jen Ryland/YA Romantics and I read this summer. Then on Wednesday, she'll be posting about Diana Peterfreund's retelling Across a Star-Swept Sea and we're both hosting giveaways!
