As I complete the finishing touches to the closet room (I hope to post pictures this weekend), I wanted to write about things I am loving right now. I was inspired by Drew Barrymore’s book “Find it in Everything” where she collected photographs that had things in the shape of a heart (like a straw wrapper, a scallion in miso soup, etc…). Most importantly, it is about finding the beauty in everything. Of course I have bad days at work, feel tired, barely get to check off things on my to do list. However, it is nice to stop and appreciate the things we do have in life that make us happy. It happens so often, that we forget to cherish the good things around us, especially those that we love. I take pleasure in the little things that can distract me from everyday hustle and bustle, so I can sit and relax.
My Favorite T.V. show(s): Right now it is The Walking Dead. The season premiere is this Sunday! I waited a while to board the TWD train, but I eventually had time to binge watch 3 seasons on Netflix last summer and caught up this season. I am so happy my husband got hooked too, so we can watch it together (hey it counts as spending time together, right?). We watch quite a few shows together like How I Met Your Mother (almost over!), Two Broke Girls, New Girl, The Middle, Modern Family, Suburgatory and Big Bang Theory. Game of Thrones starts up soon (April 6th). As soon as House of Cards Season 2 came out, we were finished in a weekend. We are looking forward to the next season of Orange is the New Black! I also have my personal guilty pleasures that I have to DVR and watch when Ray is out, like Grey’s Anatomy, Revenge, Nashville, The Bachelor/ette, and Big Brother.
My Favorite Blogs: I have to read other blogs to help keep up with the blogosphere, get some ideas for home decor, and for fun! I love The Curtis Casa and Bliss at Home. Their styles are so unique, and give me great ideas for my own home!
My Favorite Music: I can’t get the Cold Play song out of my head “Magic.” I also find myself singing Black Keys, Young and The Giant, Foster the People, lots of good stuff!
My Favorite Recent Movies: We watched Gravity and American Hustle. They were good, but the best one we have watched this past month was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I can’t wait for the next one!
Of course when I think about the things and people I appreciate, I have my husband, my dog, my grandmother, and my close friends and family. I even appreciate some of my co-workers, they keep me sane on a day to day basis! I am so grateful to finally own a home with my husband. I have to say I am pretty happy, even when there are little things bothering me, I have to be thankful for what I do have. What are you grateful for?
How can you not love that face?!?!
