The Girl with Nine Wigs - Sophie Van Der Stap
This was the book I read at work. It was a funny memoir about a girl who was diagnosed with cancer in her early 20s.
Nutshell - Ian McEwan
Weird! The narrator was a fetus. Worth the read though, as I had to know what happened at the end.
The Sun and her Flowers - Rupi Kaur
I loved Milk and Honey and this poetry collection was almost as good.
Immediate Fiction - Jerry Cleaver
I've had this book for probably five years and finally read it. It had some valuable tips on writing.

I’ve been working on an outline for some fiction. Not much down on paper yet, but I hope to use some of the principles from Immediate Fiction and aim to write at least five minutes every single day for one month once I start the actual writing. I haven’t been blogging as much at all because of the other stuff I’m working on. Maybe the change in weather will inspire me to do some new outfit posts.

Blockers (movie) - This was as funny as I expected it to be and actually got funnier as the movie went on.
As far as series go, I started Master of None, finished Season 5 of OITNB, have been watching Grey’s weekly (loving this season), as well as Modern Family, The Arrangement, and The Royals.

I did a bunch of online shopping earlier this month. Been lurking (but not so active) on all the usual social media. Still addicted to Word Cookies on my phone.

Starbucks chatter. I’m at the busier location on Lacewood today rather than my usual one on Chain Lake Dr.

So many tiny 8 year old cheerleaders who are wearing about five times as much makeup as I have ever had on in my life. There must be a competition close by today. I'm also staring at my nails... I had my shellac taken off yesterday and they look pretty sad. I love shellac, but hate what it does to my nails.

On staycation, at The Old Apothecary, with my shellac nails. They lasted three weeks (from Remedy Spa).

Peggy's Cove 

Remnants of my iced chai latte..... yum

Burger week was so great. I ended up trying three - Rinaldo’s, Vandal, and Cheese Curds. All three were amazing but the one from Vandal was probably the best burger I’ve ever had in my life. They made it part of the regular menu and I need it again soon. We did another Hello Fresh order recently, choosing the larger family box. We can get six meals out of each dish so we have some in the freezer. I started tracking calories/exercise last week on My Plate. It's helpful as I have a really baaaaad snacking habit. The only way I control it is to keep track. I've been sticking to my goal so far and have been doing BeachBody On Demand. I love the variety of workouts.

Starbucks, DAVIDsTEA, not enough water, wine (white and red....)

Zara jeans, H&M tee, H&M hoodie, Adidas Stan Smiths.

Happy today

Hearing news of which home my bestie is going to choose to live in! My vote is the one down the road from me. July can not come fast enough, then I can hold her whenever I want to! I’m also looking forward to this week, which The Weather Network tells me will be the first week of actual spring-like weather. Yay! We're also partway through some house renos. The downstairs shower got tiled and the bathroom floor is in. We're also getting living room built ins done in the next few weeks.
