Things I liked lately

New cups from IKEA (which I plan on only drinking smoothies and milkshakes out of - come on warmer weather!) and rose-shaped/scented soaps.

My phone case from Rifle Paper Co.. I've actually had this for a little while but don't think I've blogged about it before. It has proven itself worthy already as I've dropped my phone several times on our wooden floors since I've had it, and there's nary a scratch on it. And of course, it's very pretty too.

I'm really enjoying this book. Thank you to whoever recommended it to me--I can't remember who it was, but maybe you're reading this right now?  Anyway, thanks! It's very good.

Other things:

Buzzfeed quizzes - like this one, this one, and this one. Such a good way to pass the time when you're say, waiting at the doctor's office. If anyone's curious, I got Up!, Gryffindor, and pizza. (Thanks to Marieken for linking the Pixar one.)

Movies - We watched The Avengers this week, and I thought it was a lot of fun. To be honest, I'm not really a superhero/action movie girl, and I had pretty much zero interest in watching this movie until I found out that Joss Whedon directed it and wrote the screenplay. There's so much of Whedon in this film, and that's probably why I thought it was much funnier and better written than most movies of this genre. I'd be lying if I said I didn't zone out during the sometimes really long CGI fight scenes, but overall, it was very entertaining. And Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk is so great.

Randomness - This made me laugh. Anyone who has ever found themselves wondering at where life has taken them will appreciate it.

Anyway, happy Friday! What are you guys doing this weekend? It's supposed to finally be warmer here so I'm breaking out! I don't even care what we do, I just want to be outside with my camera. And if waffles or pancakes or french toast could be worked in there somewhere, I'll be a happy girl. :)

  2. I loved the hare and blogged a bit about it too, maybe that's were you've seen in :-) If you like this one, you might as well like the Elegance of the Hedgehog (by Muriel Barbery) and the Wall (by Marlen Haushoffer), two other favourites!

    I was thinking about French Toast the other day! I should make (and eat) some, and maybe watch the Avengers at the same time :-)

    (oops, I posted this comment before with my moms account....)

    1. Oh it probably was you! :)

      I have read the The Elegance of the Hedgehog, and I loved it. I haven't read The Wall, but I did see the movie and thought it was very moving. I'll have to see if my library has the book.

      Let me know if you decide to make french toast and I'll come over. ;)

  3. Those rose soaps look so pretty and I like that phone case! :)

  4. Those glasses just scream milk shake! Bring on Summer!

  5. I took some of those quizzes, too! I got Ravenclaw and Up.

    We had a fun weekend. We worked on my new website on Saturday and watched Netflix, then yesterday we went to a Super Bowl party with friends. I know you're not a fan, but it was one of the best Super Bowl games I've seen in a while. Bruno Mars was a delightful halftime show, too.
