And this one of a lizard sunbathing on a rock.
Reading: April’s Book Club choice was The Selection by Kiera Cass. It’s basically like The Bachelor meets Cinderella – awesomely girly, romantic and right up my alley -and lucky for me the sequel The Elite just came out last week. I blew threw The Elite as well and enjoyed it too :) Okay…so I also read her novella The Prince as well haha
After finishing those two, I read Fever, the second book in The Chemical Garden Trilogy by Lauren DeStefano. And I’m almost done with Sever, the final book in the series. I’m curious how it’ll all end!
Our May book is Night Circus – I’m excited to get started on that! Have you read it?
Watching: Mad Men! Oh Don Draper how I have missed you. I’m glad the drama started right back up – love it :) But seriously, when are they going to talk about the fact that Joan and Roger have a freaking kid together?!? That whole lovechild thing is bound to pop up sooner or later..
I’ve also realized my fondness for the show Bar Rescue (go ahead, laugh it up). I don’t go out of my way to watch it, but if it’s on when we turn on the tv it stays on. I haaave to see how it turns out in the end.
Anticipating: THE GREAT GATSBY! Ahhh SO freaking excited about this movie! Not only did I like the book, but Baz Lurhmann is the jam. In my teenage years I was quite obsessed with Moulin Rouge so when I saw he was the mastermind behind this film I was head over heels excited.
Do I even have to discuss the soundtrack with you? Ugh. It’s going to be amazing. Here’s a sample of what we can expect…I’m thinking it’ll to be as captivating as the Moulin Rouge soundtrack (see told you I was obsessed…)
Listening to: Still in my alternative music kick. It’s upbeat and fun – I can’t get enough! Here’s a few of my favorites right now:
Planning: Our first lake trip of the summer! My evenings for the next week will be spent cleaning and prepping the boat for a full summer of lake time. I am so excited to get back out on the water and enjoy some AZ sunshine.
Working on: Working out! April was a big month for me – I jumped into a new workout plan and have had lots of success. I just completed the first phase (4 weeks) of the LiveFit Trainer by Jaime Eason. I’ll have an update with my overall thoughts and progress next week, but in the mean time you can check out my plan/journals under “LiveFit” in the “Fitness” menu at the top of my site.
Wishing: For a new swimming suit – summer is here! Between Victoria’s Secret and Target I want like 500 different ones.
Sipping on: <— That one is new! My favorite beverage of the moment pops up on here like every month so it now has it’s own home :) The earl gray tea I got when I was in London. It’s also a nice was to daydream when I’m at work too haha.
