Once again, I have been most regrettably absent. My apologies. I gotta tell you though, it’s only going to get worse once the school year starts. I do adore my little bloglette, but with school and grad school and two kids in school- (School in every flavor, really.) -I just know the blog is going to suffer.
So, things I enjoyed in July. Sorry it’s August 12th and all.
I mentioned it this post, but it deserves another go ’round. Clean, family- friendly. Amazing. I’d recommend it in a red-hot second to anyone with younger children. Thrill-seekers? Not really, since there are only two coasters. But families? Oh yes! Please try out this park! You can tell them I sent you and you’ll…get a funny look probably. So maybe don’t tell them that.
This is my new favorite site! I freaking love to read as I have mentioned before. But books are expensive. And yes, I own a Nook, but that doesn’t replace my irrepressible desire to hold an ink and paper book and breathe in lignin fumes. Thriftbooks lets me do that. Very similar to its cousin half.com, it offers thousands of books at bargain prices, plus they ALL have free shipping! Heaven on Earth for a bibliophile like me! Check it out!
How I Met Your Mother
This show. Legendary! Fans will get it. If you liked Friends, you’ll like this show. And since I still cry myself to sleep at night over the series finale of Friends (not really), I’ve been looking for a substitute light comedy. This is it. My husband and I stream it on Netflix and quite frankly laugh our asses off. We tried to watch one episode while the girls were around, thinking it was a “kid safe” show, but of course that was the one episode that Barney yelled the word PENIS and then Corinne had to run around demanding to know what a penis is. So we wait until they go to bed to watch now. Still. A laugh a minute. Love it!
This band is great. I fell in love with their song “We Are Young” after I heard it on Glee, and when I heard the new single “Some Nights,” I just gave in and bought the CD. I think it’s the first CD I’ve purchased in like three years. Usually I just download a song or two off Itunes, but the whole CD is really, really good. I’ll attempt to post the video for Some Nights below, but my blog seems to have something against videos.
Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef
I know that the reality TV ship has long since sailed, but I remain a die-hard fan of these two shows every summer. (And Survivor and The Amazing Race in the fall.) There’s just something about cooking competition shows! I watch them on Food Network all the time, too. Also, I think Chef Ramsay is a hoot. Telling someone to piss off might be on my bucket list. This should be my cue to put a recipe on my July Fan-dom list, but unfortunately I was extremely lazy in July and cooked nothing new. Sorry!
