First and foremost, I cannot thank you all enough for your sweet words after I posted on Monday. They mean so much to me, truly. You all continually prove why the blogging community is amazing. Keep the prayers coming! Secondly, I have to wish a Happy Birthday to two sweet bloggers I know! Pinky & Carolyn both are celebrating today and I have to say, they picked a great month to be born ;)
You know what else today is? Bookmobile day! Did anyone else get excited about a bookmobile rolling up to their school on occasion? I remember feeling like I was practically royalty, getting to get inside this VEHICLE and pick out books to rent. Fun fact of the day- bookmobiles originated in the 19th century and were horse-drawn wagons with boxes of books in them. You're welcome for that bit of information today. This site is my guilty pleasure.
Speaking of books- I just finished reading Popular thanks to a recommendation by Becky. I was kinda' in the mood for a light-hearted, fun read and this book fit the bill. It's a memoir by a 15-year-old girl who decided to follow an old 1950s teen etiquette book and see what happened throughout the course of a school year. A quick, easy read and you know I love a good memoir. I'm writing one myself, after all.
This blog post has gotten random and out-of-hand pretty quickly, but I'm rolling with it... because sometimes you just have a lot of jumbled up thoughts you need to type out and get out of your head. I've eaten cauliflower in some form for three days straight and I'm not upset about it. Roasted with garlic and oil, made into a pizza crust, you name it- I love it. Not the prettiest food to take a picture of, but boy does it taste delicious!
I gifted myself something for my upcoming bday (Monday- don't forget!! ;)) and it is currently en route to my house. I feel like a kid at Christmas, seriously. I will be rushing home to tear into that package and then will let you see my goodies for sure ;)
Jared has been making my "birthday week" so fun and I love that he gets into it so much. Little surprises here and there, notes in my lunchbox, making plans for the weekend- he rocks. Friday and Saturday he and I are celebrating, then Sunday a group of our friends is getting together to celebrate, Monday's my actual birthday and then the FOLLOWING weekend I'll see my family to party one last time. I'm aware of how ridiculous we are- and that's okay.
It's time that someone cuts me off from this blog post. Good gracious it's random. Happy Wednesday!
