Happy 4th! Starting my afternoon starting my #seasonalcozies pick for July while grilling up some chicken breast to make chicken salad with later! Going to be a quiet day (my husband works for CBP and he worked 16 hours last night with another 16 hour shift tonight so he needs SLEEP) filled with books, grilling, some soft music, and a few drinks with my sister.

2000s | Stephen Feinstein

The 2000s were my time to shine 😂. My preteen/teen/young adult years! Plus I had more chances to visit my aunt for long weekends and she lived by a blockbuster and multiple theaters and my rural Iowa town had NEITHER.

My favorites on this list (which was SO HARD to narrow down to 3) are: Lord of the Rings trilogy, Mamma Mia!, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. But shout out to Legally Blonde. It‘s not on the list but it‘s one of my comfort movies.

dabbe I can't believe LEGALLY BLONDE didn't make the list! Excellent score, too! Thanks for playing and sharing. 🤩🤩🤩 1mo

Happy pub day to the new Riley Sager! Cracking it at my local Irish pub while the kiddo has his first youth quartet practice (where he‘s annoyed that he‘s the only cello “mom the teen quartet is split evenly between violins and cellos this is UNFAIR”) followed by the first fiddle club practice of the summer!

Tuesday evenings mean dropping the kiddo off at orchestra rehearsal then heading to the local Irish tavern for a cider boys hard cider and a book! Last orchestra before shifting to fiddle club for the summer (which is misleading as the fiddle club also has cellos which my cello playing child would want you all to know 😂)

mabell Sounds relaxing! (And good to have the clarification 😄) 2mo

After a truly awful last 2 weeks of October I‘m back to posting on Litsy! Reading the new Royal Spyness while my husband is in surgery. He‘s having an ACL reconstruction and meniscus tear repaired since he tore them up this summer at some training for his job but since he‘s so used to knee pain he didn‘t think anything about it until it swelled up to grapefruit size.

I have read The Great Pumpkin to my son every year on Halloween night after trick or treating since he was born! He‘s an October baby so it started when he was only a couple weeks old (the only year we did it without trick or treating first). Can‘t believe this is our 12th year doing it. We always watch the movie after too. #sundayfunday

Hey I‘m back everyone! It‘s been a crazy, no good summer for me after getting back from TX. My paternal grandfather died extremely suddenly at the beginning of July and it triggered a terrible reading slump for me as I‘ve been struggling to deal with the manner of his death and my grief. Here‘s hoping a fun, fluffy book while the kidlet is at swimming lessons will help!
