Because I love to read so much I get really excited and put a bunch of holds on my library account online. I figure that the holds will come in at different times so it won’t be a big deal to add a bunch at the same time. But when I went in yesterday, there were 10 books ready for me to devour them.

Dave thought it was so funny that I came out with an armload of books, so he snapped this picture.



Which brings me to my next favorite thing this week. Those pink shoes in that last picture. They are Sketchers Go Walk that I heard about from Shay, the Mix and Match Mama (she’s one of my favorite bloggers!) I saw that she mentioned them in a blog post and I thought they were so cute.

I love bright colors, and she raved about how comfortable they were. Then the other day I was at Kohl’s and saw that the shoes were on sale for $60 so I had to snatch them up. I’ve worn them everyday since I bought them. They’re light weight, offer great support, and are so easy to slip on and off. I’m in love.





Since I picked up so many books from the library I had to start reading them immediately. I put them in the order that I want to read them and started with The Men We Became by Robert Littell.


It’s nice to get a glimpse into the life of John F. Kennedy Jr. to see what he’s really like from people who really know him. They shared a 20 year friendship and experienced a lot together. I’m about 50 pages from being done but I already love it. I’ll do a full book review after I finish it. THE NEW YOU(3)

Ever since our road trip, I’ve become obsessed with podcasts. There are so many good ones out there! They’re perfect for driving and commuting. It makes the ride go faster and keeps my mind engaged.

My current favorite podcast is from the author of the Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin. It’s called Happier with Gretchen Rubin. She and her sister talk about about habits that can have an effect on your well being and you guessed it, happiness! 🙂 It’s fun and very relatable.



And lastly, I am really excited to start reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I’ve wanted to read it since before the movie came out and it finally came in for me after being on the wait list. I love Reese Witherspoon and can’t wait to see the movie after I read the book. I already know it’s going to be a great read.

  1. Hmm…my sister in law had a pair on an I was curious about them. May have to check them out. I use to buy skechers alot for my kids and they would end up stinking so bad from their sweaty little feet.

  2. LOVE that snapshot of you with a LOAD of books! teehee 🙂 I purchased a library bag because I always leave with so many too, so I can absolutely relate! I typically fill that bag and still have to juggle a few more items – lol! 🙂 Your shoes are amazing! I adore that pop of bright pink! So cheery and perfect for this time of year! Have a lovely weekend! xo

    1. I’m so glad there are other books lovers out there like me, who can never leave with just one book! 🙂

      I love hot pink, I can’t resist it!

      I saw Phoebe the fox on your Friday post and I’m so impressed with your daughter’s artistic ability! Sounds like a fun party.

      And I didn’t know Popsugar did a must have box. I’d love to hear what you think of the Bliss micromagic tube! I’d love to get my hands on that.

  3. Hurray for piles of books and new shoes (especially new shoes on sale)! I love to read too and I’ve been looking for some new books so I’ll be heading over to your book club page.
