weekend update.



RECAPS
-- my coworker and i took our lunch break tuesday and ran over to the mall to pick up a couple things. when we walked back out, there was a 10 minute snowstorm going on outside...or as our weatherman likes to call it, a "wintry mix." apparently tenneessee only gets snow when there is no prediction for it.

-- i sat down and actually watched american idol. the week before i'd just seen clips online the day after it aired. i am loving the vibe that the judeges are bringing this year. i think they are going to be a little stricter (especially harry connick jr.) which is great.

-- i spent friday night eating dinner and playing board games with my grandparents. my grandmother was listing off our dessert options and ended up pronouncing "sherbet" as "sher-butt." only the cutest southern women can get away with it.

-- after taking our pups on a very long walk on saturday, i spent the rest of the day by the fireplace reading and watching BBCs Sherlock. SO GOOD.

OTHER FINDS
-- ummm, Frozen's "let it go" sung in 25 different languages. beautiful.
-- i am wanting to be more intentional about memorizing scripture and ann voskamp has provided a fun way to do that! she's offering free downloads of cute prints to help you memorize the Word, and you can find those here.
-- i've been on the hunt for a good pair of black jeans. i found these legging jeans at GAP and LOVE them. they are comfy and have the perfect amount of stretchiness. also, i got them on sale. bonus!
-- for all you lovers of doctor who. p.s. don't watch this if you haven't finished eleven's last season.
-- quiz time! which hunger games character are you? i'm katniss! score.

I'm also addicted to BBC's Sherlock. It's so good! What are you reading right now?

Megan McIlvaine said...

i'm reading the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. have you read them? i'm on the last book and i'm nervous about how it's going to end!!

Kaysie G said...

I haven't! But I've heard a lot of buzz about them, and know they'll be made into movies!

Tyler and I will hopefully be catching up on Sherlock tonight! And Bates FINALLY knows what happened to Anna... but now he looks like he might kill someone.

Megan McIlvaine said...

Ahhhhh! I was so glad Bates finally found out. But you know he's gonna go do something cray now. Sigh. Also, Tom cannot move to America!! I would miss him too much! Sherlock was good last night!! :)
