Thoughtful Thursday: Next on Deck!

Happy Thursday everyone! I’ve been pretty MIA with a business trip, my best friends Master’s Graduation and then a trip to NM to look at neighborhoods for our upcoming move. It’s been a whirlwind to say the least and reading/blogging had to take a back seat. However! I’m getting back on the wagon and I’ve got a review for Run Away coming at y’all soon. I thought I’d take today to show y’all what I’m reading and what I will be reading and review in the next couple of weeks.

Thoughtful Thursday’s: The Binge Watch!

Happy almost Friday readers! I know *most* of my content is either book or cooking related but a few months ago I did a cheesy Christmas movie post and it was super fun. I thought I'd change things up a little bit today and give y'all something you haven't asked for - great TV shows to binge watch! With the weekend looming and spring cleaning in full swing, what's a better way to get all that laundry out of the way than to pop on a great binge-watchable TV show and mow through those chores.

First things first, I'm not going to go over some of the all-time best, and well known shows that generally, the entire world and their moms have seen. So, no The Office, Parks and Recreation or Game of Thrones will be found on this list. While all of these are fan-freakin'-tastic shows, they're also some of the most popular shows and you've likely either already seen them, or decided you wont watch them (but I highly suggest giving them all a real shot)! I've got another Recipe and a Read post coming at y'all tomorrow so keep an eye out!

Thoughtful Thursdays: World Building!

So I've talked about a lot of different book topics on Thursday's, along with touching on kitchen essentials as well. As you all well know by now, my previous go-to genre, and one of my absolute favorites is Fantasy. Not all Fantasy novels are created equal though - some focus on strong character building or building worlds that are a little too contrived and artificial for me to get into. Obviously, none of these are realistic because that's what Fantasy is - but I like my worlds grounded in thought, I like my "rules of magic" to have consistency and not feel arbitrary. So, in the spirit of getting back to my roots, I thought I'd do a post about my favorite novels, with the best world building!

Thoughtful Thursday: Kitchen Essentials!

We're back to it's-almost-Friday-day and I couldn't be more excited! I have a work trip that has me flying in and out of Dallas in one day tomorrow for a meeting but I've got nothing but a couple of errands, some chores and a boat load of reading lined up for my first *full* weekend… Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday: Kitchen Essentials!
