What’s On My Library List [4]: Social Distancing Edition

What’s On My Library List is an original feature I started to highlight some of my most anticipated reads I have on hold through my local library that I am eagerly waiting for! As many are experiencing in the US and around the world, my state is under a “shelter in place” status until further notice (which I am 100% supportive of! We need to flatten the curve!) I’m hopeful that this will encourage me to read more, although to be 100% honest I’ve been distracted with everything going on that I haven’t gotten as much reading done as I […]

What I’ve Been Watching Lately [3]

Inspired by Lauren @ Bookmarklit, I’ve been wanting to incorporate some more non-bookish things into my blog. Since Netflix is practically a hobby in and of itself these days, I am tagging along on her feature on showcasing what I’ve been watching lately! It’s been a while since I featured that I’ve been watching lately, and now that spring is here I thought it would be fun to feature the shows I’ve added to my tv rotation this season. I’m still watching the shows from my last post (Dynasty, Jane the Virgin, and Riverdale) so I’m only going to be […]

Month in Review: February 2020

I can’t believe February has already come and gone! Even with the extra day it truly feels like it flew by. February was a weird month for me, busy with work yet weirdly spring-like, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Max and I have been taking advantage of the warmer weather and have been exploring new areas to walk. We found a neat Wetlands Preserve trial in our neighborhood that we’ve been walking down quite a bit, and have been exploring local lakes too- some of them have beaches that you can just drive right onto and sit in […]

Monthly TBR Plan: March 2020

I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR. Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 12/100* Books Read *Wish me luck as I try to read more books in 2020 than ever before! I am already […]

January 2020 Month In Review

Ah, the first month of a new decade! As usual, I kicked off the the New Year with my birthday early on in the month and enjoyed some additional time off of work for it after the holidays. Max and I had a quiet celebration at home and with my family, including seeing Little Women and trying out a delicious new restaurant! The rest of the month was really filled with getting back into the swing of things at work (so hard after the holidays), continuing to unpack our new home, and wishing for warmer weather. January was a LONG […]

Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 2

Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 2

I’m recapping my dream Disney honeymoon through this blog series! To start from the beginning, check out part 1 here! Day 4- Magic Kingdom I will be honest with you- I am a Disneyland SNOB. I was an annual passholder for 5 years and so the classic Disneyland park is my metric I compare every other Disney park against. Therefore, I’m usually pretty critical of Magic Kingdom because it feels like a much lighter version of Disneyland to me, without a lot of the classic rides. So I was hesitant going to Magic Kingdom this time because it definitely underwhelmed […]

December 2019 Month in Review

Better late than never, am I right? I haven’t done a monthly recap since January 2019 so it seems fitting to finish out the year with one since I started with one, lol. I’m hoping to become a LOT more consistent with these since my life should calm down QUITE A BIT in 2020 and my bestie Lauren taught me a much easier method for making photo collages 😉 This holiday season was a whirlwind since we moved into our new home shortly before Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving was also pretty late this year, Christmas really snuck up on us! We […]

Exploring the World of Bullet Journaling: 2020 Reading Bujo [2]

It’s been a while since I did a check in on my bullet journaling life! What a better time to dive back in than to share my bookish spreads for 2020! This year I’m focusing on annual spreads (at least so far) since I have SEVERAL other daily planners at this time. However, I did use some daily trackers last fall and enjoyed them so we’ll see if the urge to start them again in my bujo strikes me! Annual Books Read Graph and Daily Reading Calendar My first spread was pretty much exactly the same as the one I […]


2020 Reading Challenges!

2020 Reading Challenges!

Another year, another blank slate! Every year I start out with the best intentions for challenges, but over time I have learned it’s not realistic for me to participate in too many, as I lose track of them through the year. I always do the Goodreads challenge, but this year have decided to add two more challenges to my plate as well! Goodreads Annual Challenge So I’m apparently feeling super ambitious this year and under the impression I can read 100 books in 2020? I think the most I’ve ever read in one year is 82 so we’ll see how […]
