It’s been awhile since I did one of these posts so I thought I would share what I am reading, watching and listening to!

One Day by David Nicholls

I read reviews about this book in several of my magazines so I finally picked it up to read. It is a love story that spans 20 years and I adore the premise of it. They meet have one wonderful night together and then the book touches on where their lives are on that exact same day every year. I have not finished it yet, so not sure of the ending but I am really enjoying it! It is a perfect summer read.

The Next Foodnetwork Star

I am not working with many shows to watch this summer since most of my favorites are on hiatus til September! It is probably lame I watch this but, I honestly love any cooking show. I have been watching this show for years and it is always entertaining although sometimes it’s stars are not! Most of the past winners besides Guy I have not been impressed with but I still watch. I don’t have any favorites yet in the new cast but I am sure I will as the season goes on!

My Morning Jacket Circuital CD

I have loved MMJ for years, my brother actually introduced me to them. I have been to a few of their concerts and they are always fun. Their new CD is really good! It is great “chill” music.

Any book, music or tv recommendations send them my way!

Tis the season to be lazy. I am visiting my parents for the week and enjoying some much needed relaxation. Here is a peek at what I have been doing the last few days.

Rachel Zoe’s Style A To Zoe.
I bought this book a few years ago but have been revisiting it. I forgot how much I love Mrs. Zoe. This book has great fashion and styling tips.

Charlie St. Cloud.
Not the best movie ever but Zac Efron looks scrumptious. Definitely worth watching for the shirtless scenes with Zac.

Giuliana and Bill.
Now that I am at home visiting my rents, I can catch up on the whole season of Giuliana and Bill. I dvred all the episodes since we don’t get the Style network in Charleston (tragic, I mean what cable provider doesn’t offer the Style Network). I had forgotten how much I love them. I hope their marriage doesn’t suffer the same curse of all reality tv show marriages. I also really hope Giuliana gets pregnant soon. They honestly seem like the sweetest couple. I feel like if I met them we would totally be friends.

Mumford and Sons


To say I am obsessed with these two bands is an understatement. I have their cds on repeat in my car. Listen to them if you never have!

Tonight is ladies night out with all my old girlfriends. Gotta love having a free babysitter= my parents! Hope everyone else is enjoying this holiday week!
