Reading: The Comfort Food Diaries by Emily Nunn. I love a memoir that involves food. Scattered throughout the author’s journey to sobriety and belonging are delicious sounding recipes I can’t wait to try.
Watching: Poldark. Season three is currently airing on PBS, and the drama between the Poldarks and the Warleggans continues to build.
Listening to: Rag’n’Bone Man’s “Human.” My theme song for October. Also, loving Climbing Tree’s “Fall.”
Eating: All of the cookies. I love these tahini cookies from Shutterbean.
Directing: The Most Epic Birthday Party Ever. Last month, I directed my first kids musical. I had so much fun, and the kids did, too.
Seeing: Leslie Odom, Jr. in concert. His voice is like velvet. I, also, went to an Alan Alda talk/book signing.
Blogging about: Chocolate body scrub and other good things, Life’s little indulgences, Last minute Halloween costume: Pretty Woman, Will Amazon Outfit Compare help you decide what to wear?, and What’s in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!
Link loving: How to be an Amazing Influencer Like Me, AD Visits Robert Downey Jr.’s Playful Hamptons Home, Tex Mex Breakfast Enchiladas, How Jane Austen’s Emma changed the face of fiction.
P.S. Today I’m linking up with Kristen and Gretchen.

Life lately… Reading: Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel. I love Anne’s blog, and her new book takes a very interesting look at personality types. Watching: Movies for The Fall Film Challenge. So far, I’ve watched Proof, Woman in Gold, Tropic Thunder, X-Men: Days of Future […]
Life lately… Road tripping: Last weekend, my brother and I went to Stratford, Ontario to see Twelfth Night and Guys and Dolls. We had a lot of fun, so I wrote about it here. Eating: All the food. At the German-American Festival, I helped myself to two kinds of bratwurst and a healthy helping of […]
Life lately… Eating: Brambleberry Sorbet and Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet from Jeni’s Ice Creams. I’ve heard amazing things about Jeni’s, but this past weekend was the first time I got to go there. It is worth the hype and a must stop if you are in Columbus. Making: Two-Cheese Squash Casserole and this “ice cream”. The banana […]
Life lately… Performing in: The King and I. This show ate up parts of May and most of June, and it was totally worth it. I had so much fun and was reminded why I love theatre. If you wondered why I wasn’t blogging much last month it was because of this awesome show. I met […]
Life lately… 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. […]
Baking: Pear and Chai Breakfast Cake. It’s so yummy, and the fact that it’s baked in a slow cooker blew my mind. Eat it warm and marvel at the goodness. Reading: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. I’m about 100 pages into the book and am fighting the struggle bus. Glass Sword was a disappointing second book, […]
Making: Umbrella bouquet/wreath. I totally stole this idea from a neighbor. I used my free-with-purchase umbrella from Victoria’s Secret and flowers from Hobby Lobby to create the perfect door decor for the rainy month of April. Use a rubber band and ribbon over the umbrella to hold the flowers in. Reading: A Court of Mist and […]
Eating: Pączki. My gluten free diet went out the window this Mardis Gras because it was impossible for me to say no to a chocolate filled doughnut. Watching: The Crown. This Netflix series is so good and deserves the hype. I, also, went to see the musical Newsies on screen, and it was almost as good […]
Re-reading: I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. This delightful comfort read is a coming of age story set in a rundown English castle. It has one of my favorite opening sentences ever, “I write this sitting in the kitchen sink.” Doesn’t it make you want to know more? Watching: So much TV. There was […]
