I'm All About
I'm always wondering what people are reading, eating, watching, etc. I'm always all about something. It's just so me. I thought I'd give you a peek into what I'm All About right now (that's the key phrase).
I love candles. I have several of these Votivo Red Current ones around the house. I also love Henri Bendel candles. Lindsey gave me this Lavender Leaves one and since I've been having a migraine for three days- I've been burning it. I also have Mimosa and Tuberose. I want Fig and Firewood. I always loved Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream but over the Thanksgiving weekend, Justin bought me this. Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie! It's soooo amazingly delish. My absolute favorite ice cream is cookies and cream or Oreo or something like that so this is PERFECT! Yummy.
Our microwave doesn't turn anymore. I don't know why. So, I cannot pop popcorn. I bought a few bags of it at the store the other day. I got Smartfood white cheese popcorn and it's sooooo yummy. I opened a bag of this stuff last night and it's just weird. Weirdly fascinating. Puffcorn. It's like non-food, air, butter flavored. I saw that they have cheese flavored and I'm ashamed to admit that I'll probably buy some.
I drink regular Diet Coke in the A.M.- maybe one (two if it's a bad day) but, caffeine doesn't do well with me after that. So, I've been drinking this before switching to water. It's so good. I am still drinking A LOT- remember how I told you that I drink so much. Yeah, still do.
This is the book I'm reading. I started it on Sunday. It is excellent. It's about two girls, Sally Rose and Clare Mann, who meet in college and become best friends. The book follows the two through life: marriages, divorces, births, deaths, joys, and pains. The book is really good. I have not finished it, yet but I plan to tonight. Anyone else read it?
I watched this movie, Waitress, yesterday afternoon. It was written and directed by Adrienne Shelly (who also had a part in the movie). She was sadly murdered in her office apartment in November of last year, before the movie went to the Sundance Film Festival. Her two-year-old daughter, Sophie, has a cameo in the movie. I'm drawn to the movie because I love, love, love Keri Russell. I also am drawn to the story of Adrienne Shelly. I am a woman writer and was an actress. Her husband started The Adrienne Shelly Foundation for woman filmmakers. I would love to be a screenwriter, director, actor.
As far as the movie, it's about Jenna (Keri Russell) a waitress who makes incredible pies. She is in a terrible marriage and becomes pregnant. She is not happy to be and that's very poignant and real. Not every mother is jumping for joy. It's not really a feel good movie but, I really loved it. It was funny and sad. Andy Griffith gives a fabulous performance.
If I'm not dying of pain from the migraine, I'll be watching these shows tonight. It's the finale of ANTM. I want Chantal to win. I am so praying for the writers strike to be over because it's seriously going to depress me when all my shows go away for good.
Now it's your turn. What are you reading, watching, doing, loving, loving, loving?
