mid-week round-up

What have you been up to lately, lovelies? I’m counting down the days because…I’m flying to Los Angeles one week from today!!! I’ll be celebrating and exploring with my dear friend Adam (it will be his birthday while we’re there!) and hopefully seeing some other West Coast loves. I can’t wait! But I’m almost done with the book I’m reading so I need to pick a new one for the plane. Any suggestions? I’m flying direct so I’m gonna need a page-turner to pass the time! If you have fun plans forthcoming, I hope the days fly by (I know that’s what I’m wishing for!), but until then…

  1. Oh you’re going to have so much fun in LA! I’m jealous.
    And honestly, I’m so sick of the “crisis actor” bullshit that pops up every time there’s a huge tragedy. What is wrong with people?

      1. Yayyy! I hope you found something helpful! PS, just found out how to see replies to WP comments.

  2. A pub that banned swearing? Interesting 😀 I haven’t been up to much this week, been writing an essay for my school application, 4th time is the charm right?

  3. I haven’t really been reading much lately, don’t know why because I love it so I can’t think of any great recommendations.. have you read Donna Tartt? I love her books. I just need to get back to it and then it flows.

  4. Oh, I can’t read any of these suggestions today, sorry Beth! I am going with you in L.A. now, I so loved my trip there, many years ago! Enjoy your holidays dear!
