What I've Been Reading

 Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe
by: Fannie Flag

Kabul Beauty School
by: Deborah Rodriguez

Better than Fiction
by: Various Authors

by: Elisabeth Eaves

The Marriage Bureau for Rich People
by: Farahad Zama

Where'd You Go, Bernadette
by: Maria Semple

Rain Song

The Lost Continent
by: Bill Bryson

The Bell Jar
by: Sylvia Plath

There is only one out of this bunch that I wouldn't recommend: The Lost Continent.  Don't read it unless you love reading about a self absorbed man journey across America visiting small towns and complaining about them.  Who wants to read a book of complaints from a man full of prejudices?  Not me.  

Where'd You Go, Bernadette is my new favorite book.  I recommend it for everyone.  It was a beautiful read and I really related to the main character, Bernadette.  It was poetic and witty and written well.  And there was also little bit about Chihuly, the famous glass artist.  What more could you ask for? 

All in all, these were all excellent reads...except The Lost Continent.  That was awful.

Updates and Such

Well, it's been a while.  Twenty-three days to be exact.  Life happens.  I think just a little Insta-update will suffice for now.  Let's meet up more often in June.

1)  I've been trying new things.  Pink Lemonade cookies?  What??  They were actually pretty good.
2)  This book has been on my to-read list for a while now.
3)  I've finally started sewing on my machine.  Hopefully I can cross off something from my 25 before 25 list.  Check it out here.
4)  Just saving cats from trees and stuff.
5)  I made some earrings with a friend yesterday.  How do think they turned out?

What about you?  What have you been up to?  
Have a great Sunday!

Insta Five Friday

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I've been a little non-existent in the blogging world.  What can I say?  It's finals.  

1)  I found this Australian movie during our Blockbusters big blowout.
2)  Finally finished my creative writing portfolio.  Yeah-uh!
3)  I'm keeping this sweet baby every week.  He's the best baby ever.
4)  I leave my mark wherever I go.  Oops
5)  Printmaking project.  Gotta get it done.

Finals are killing me.
