weekend reading

Happy Sunday! How has your weekend been? Have you moved at all from the couch or have you been glued to it, watching the Olympics, like me?! I have always liked the Olympics but my zest for watching didn't start til 2012, when I was nannying infant twins and was relegated to the couch for much of the day. Ever since, I have figured out my favorite events, found the schedule online, and recorded and watched. Right now I'm really digging slopestyle, ski jump, and pretty much anything else that happens on skis or snowboards. 

Even with all the Olympic watching, I have found time to read and find links to share :) 

I really love the blog This Handmade Life and this week, its author perfectly summed up exactly how I feel when inspiration strikes. I also have been craving crepes lately, so we are alike in that way as well. 

I'm not a huge magazine reader, but there are a few I really enjoy. I renewed my subscription to Making this week and added a subscription to Taproot. I am also a perpetual subscriber to Mollie Makes. I am sure to be inspired this year!

20 Netflix docs to watch and where to watch Oscar-nominated movies

Renovated RVs and little trailer homes are popping up all over my feeds recently and now I kinda want to live in one. Case in point

Blue moon milk. So the ingredients aren't "i'm just going to run to the store for this stuff real quick" types, but it sure is pretty. 

This had me snort-laughing out loud. 

Absolutely in love with this caption

I'm not a big journaler, nor do I have a bullet journal, but this page is rather convincing. 

Spaghetti squash "pizza" bowls. Yum!!

Next month it will finally be my turn to pick out the next book for my book club to read! I have been doing lots of searching for a good book to pick and I am very, very tempted to choose this one

Essential oil things: a really beautifully scented blend for relaxation/sleep, beautiful containers, and some inspiration for my own blends

My sister and I did some researching and bought some products from The Ordinary. I CANNOT WAIT to get mine in. I told one of my besties that I am envisioning 2 very different outcomes- either I start using these products and have model-like beautiful glowing perfect skin, OR my entire face falls off. That's it. there's no inbetween. Let's hope it's the former. I ended up buying the lactic acid 5% with HA, the niacinamide 10% and zinc 1%, the natural moisturizing factors with HA, the squalane, and the high adherence silicone primer.

Last week, I was hanging out with one of my best friends and she mentioned that later in the week, I would have a surprise. I asked all sorts of questions about it, wanting to be somewhat prepared, and could not figure out at all what I might be. Yesterday, as I was sitting around, watching the Olympics, a package arrived on my front step. What?! I hadn't considered this possibility. When I opened it, there was another box inside and it said "Happy Galentine's Day" and I immediately was overcome with happiness. If you don't watch Parks and Rec, you are seriously missing out, if only because you don't understand the fun of Galentine's Day. For the uninitiated, my friend had sent a package full of love and compliments. It's pretty much the best. Katie, you're a true Leslie Knope and a beautiful rule-breaking moth. 

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekends. I took tomorrow off and I am just thrilled! Hopefully I spend the rest of today and all of tomorrow wisely and not glued to the Olympics...might be wishful thinking!
