Baking: Melty Chocolate-Truffle Cookies. These bite size, melt-in-your-mouth, chocolate cookies are so yummy and are a great way to get your daily dose of chocolaty goodness. Covered in powdered sugar, these cookies are pretty to look at, too. I should have taken pictures, but I was to busy eating them.
Celebrating: My birthday. Last month, I celebrated getting another year older with tasty tacos, a mom-made chocolate cake, and oodles of prezzies. At 32, I am still mistaken for a college and even a high school student. Some people tell me it’s a good thing to look so young, but mostly, I think people are just weirded out when they realize how old I actually am…
Watching: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Not as good as the original, but it was still a fun movie. The last half really picked up, and I love that the idea of family plays such an important role in the story.
Reading: So many books… I read this hot new thriller as well as a cute, YA romance. I’m participating in the BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge, so I’ll be posting plenty of book recommendations throughout the summer.
Rehearsing: The King and I. I’m super excited about being involved in this production. We are in our last few weeks of rehearsals before showtime. I’ve already reached that stage where I’ve started using show dialogue in everyday conversations. It will only get worse from here.
