It's time for a little update.  I've been pretty unmotivated to blog (sad day), and I think I'm getting a cold.

Anyways, here's what's currently going on in life.

Current excitement
Having 100 followers!  I mean, seriously?!  How cool is that.  I'm in the process of thinking of a sweet giveaway for all y'all.  Thanks for sticking around and thanks for joining me in this journey!

Current books
I'm reading the Hobbit right now (in preparation for the new movie of course!) and after that I'm sure I'll read either Memoirs of a Geisha or Into the Wild.  Any recommendations?

Current drink
Lemon water.  So good.  And so good for you.

Current bummer
Feeling a little sickness coming on.  It was bound to happen sometime.
I'm also feeling a little bogged down with working out.  I haven't been working out too much with this job.  I need to find some ways to work out with the girls or do it around their house.

Current project
Check this out.  I made two of them!  Books turned binders!  For one of them, I super gorilla glued a binder part into a hollowed out book and the other one my husband drilled out some holes and I just put in some binder clips.  Pretty fun if you ask me!

Current movie
Just watched The Artist the other day.  I was very impressed and fell in love with it!  Have you seen it?  I loved it!  The music, the silence, the actors, everything!

Current #1 blessing
Having a job that allows me to hang out at the water slides all day while getting paid.  Nothing beats this!

  6. Hooray for 100 followers! I just reached that mark too so I can empathize with your excitement. And that book project? Awesome!

  7. That's what I'm drinking right now, water with lemon :)

  8. Congrats on your 100th follower! I'm 101. :) Found you through the Blogger Map. I grew up on Camano Island and live down in South King County now, but it's always nice to find bloggers in your area. Have a great day!


  9. Just stumbled across your blog! Congrats on hitting 100 followers! :)

    I love that you are reading The Hobbit! I haven't read Memoirs of a Geisha, but I have read Into the Wild & it's amazing! I'm a reading teacher so i'm constantly reading (usually young adult though, haha!)

    I wish I had a job that allowed me to hang out at water slides all day (jeallllous) except it's been 100 degrees, so i'm not sure how I feel about that now (unless of course you can actually get IN the water?)
