What Am I Into This Month - August 2010

My beautiful in-real-life friend Megan at Sorta Crunchy has a fabulous post today and I feel compelled to join in.

On My Nightstand: the newest Sephora catalog (so much purple this fall- LOVE!), coupon inserts to sort through, and Beth Moore's Praying God's Word Day by Day

Want To Read: Beth Moore's Looking Up When Life is Looking Down- should be here any day, and I am hoping it will be a shovel to dig me out of this deep deep hole of anxiety I've been experiencing

T.V. Show Worth Watching: Big Brother, obv. My office pool pick, Ragan, is still alive! And there is much excitement at the Sasha's about the premier of Camp Rock 2 next week. (I'll admit I am sharing in P's excitement.....)

Movie I've Seen (in our out of the theater): Recently? Marmaduke at the dollar movie with the kids. Not bad for a buck. I'm hoping to take them to see Beezus and Ramona soon. Also, my coworker just told me my newest assignment is to see The Other Guys. (We do this a lot- assign each other entertainment tasks.)

In My Kitchen: A big ole messy mess. Too many dishes in the sink. A dusty copy of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking that I simply must get back into.

In My Ears: My local library system doesn't have Confessions of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, No 1)on CD, so I broke down and purchased it and am loving listening to it while I run. It was my first adventure into British chick lit and I list it as my favorite book to this day. (BTW, the movie is NOTHING like the book- don't judge it by that.)

Three Newest Blog Reads:

  • lollipop26- British and darling, love to watch her makeup videos
  • mckmamawithoutpity- oh Lord- check the right sidebar for "Links You Might Want to Read"
  • Reality Steve- I will not hide in shame, I will just go ahead and admit that I am watching The Bachelor Pad and am always a fan of the spoiler

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month: Cooler weather! I am ready for fall, which I will tell you today is my favorite season, but fully admit that if you ask me in December, I'll tell you it's spring......

I love what Megan said at the end of her post, and I'll ditto it: NOW then. Your turn! What are YOU into this month? Fill up the comment space or borrow this for inspiration on your own blog.

British Chick Lit, i have heard that but not in awhile. I read a few great "books" on my Kindle that fit this category. One is Gucci Gucci Coo. Something like that. Another was awesome, but would require me going upstairs to look it up on the Kindle. Anyway, I scored Shopaholic for 89 cents on my kindle and thanks for the reminder to read it! I may have to bring it to Michigan and ask my mom to mind the kids for a few minutes to actually get a chance to look at it!

On My Nightstand: A touchlamp, my alarm clock, a picture of a flower in a frame and dust. In my nightstand - TONS AND TONS of makeup.

Want To Read: I have a book I just bought called Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich that I've been meaning to get around to.

TV Show Worth Watching: Jersey Shore. (*hiding head in shame*) I didn't really watch much of the first season but the second season is kinda like a car crash - you just can't look away.

Movie I've Seen: The last movie I watched at the theatre was Step Up 3. This movie wouldn't have been my first choice but it was my friend's birthday so I let her pick the movie. It wasn't awful.

In My Kitchen: Two fish and a bird. One of the fishes is mine, the other fish and the bird belong to my mom. I'm pet sitting for her this week.

In My Ears: The new Eminem CD - Recovery. It's what I've been listening to the most besides the radio. (I loved the Shopaholic Series too! The movie wasn't nearly as good as the book, in my opinion.)

Three Newest Blog Reads: Hmm, I'll have to get back to you on that one. I've read the MckMama Without Pity blog before and was pretty shocked at some of the stuff on there!

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month: Pretty much nothing.
