Ten Things

I’m reading The Vegetarian. I’m only about 10 pages into it and it’s taking a minute to get used to the translation (it was originally published in Korean) but I’m excited to see where it leads. I haven’t read a horror book… maybe ever.


I bought this dress to wear to a wedding next month and I’m so excited to wear it. Because eShakti is amazing and customizable, I switched up a few parts of it to make it perfect for me. Since I’ve been downsizing my closet so much lately, I realized I didn’t really have anything nice to wear to events like this so I let myself splurge on something that will lend itself to all sorts of different occasions. Hoping for a fancy date night! *fingers crossed*

I’m eating pineapple. It’s that time of year when I start to only want fruit. Pineapples, cherries, blackberries. I recently learned that pineapple is a berry. Or rather, a collection of berries–also called pineapples. It’s all very mind boggling.

I’m working up some watercolor paintings for sale. Right now I have a 4-Pack of small cards for sale for $10 each. All the money from these sales will go to the Salina Rescue Mission in Salina, KS to help to fund their Easter Dinner. Buying just one of these 4-packs will provide five people with a meal that day! They’re standard size to use as postcards or you can frame them and stick them around your house wherever you need a little extra oomph. Anyway–I have one 4-pack left. If you want it, let me know!

We’re in the middle of our HBO Now trial and I’ve become obsessed with Big Little Lies and also Crashing. BLL is  a super exciting, thriller of a television show with an impeccable cast. Crashing is a comedy that is so hilarious–I’ve laughed out loud so many times since starting this show. I relate so much to the character of Pete.

I’m looking for the perfect pair of tennis shoes to wear with shorts and dresses alike this summer. Also the perfect leather sandals. Thinking something like this and this but I need to save up. I’m trying to fill my home with ethical/ fair trade items and sometimes that comes with a little bit of an added cost–which I’m more than happy to pay. It just takes a little longer to get my hands on things.

I’m listening to this two-part series from RadioLab called “Shots Fired”. The subject of police brutality isn’t closed–and it won’t be anytime soon. This series takes a look at so many different aspects of the conversation from the Mothers of the Movement, to police training, to stories about times things went right and times things went wrong.

This recipe is on the docket for next week.Half Baked Harvest has become my latest favorite food blog. Since I started following, they have yet to post a recipe that I don’t want to make.

Still working on downsizing the house while we look for a one-bedroom apartment to move into soon. I just shipped off my first bag of clothes to sell at ThredUp. If you have all of the money collected from your clothes donated to a charity, you don’t have to pay for shipping!

Have you heard about Julia? I think this representation is going to be so important for kids.

What sorts of things are you up to? What are you watching, eating, listening to, buying, etc? I want to know!

    My white less are hands down my most practical and versatile pair of shoes. I feel like there is surely a more ethically made similar style out there! (But TBH, I don’t know what practice Keds employ.)

  2. Hey Libby! I’m here bc of Kalene’s series and her feature on you! Love what I’ve read here so far! Curious to know what you thought of The Vegetarian. It’s on my bed side table and I’m kinda scared to start.

    1. Hey there!! That’s awesome! I’ve had such a response from that–Kalene continues to bless me. 🙂
      I’ll be honest with you about The Vegetarian–I read about 2/3 of it and stopped. I grabbed it because it was beautiful but also because I hadn’t read anything scary in a while and it seemed a little bit spooky. But I didn’t find that to be the case at ALL! It started out really strange and unrelatable to me and only accelerated in that direction. MAYBE it all accumulated in an ending that made total sense but I haven’t gotten there. All it did was make me feel super icky inside.
      But if you read it and like it, I want to hear all about why. Because I’m very curious.

      Thanks for stopping by!
