The Little Things

Gotta love those short work weeks! I am up to my eyeballs in work but that doesn’t put a damper on the fact that the weekend is here. *sigh*

Having pizza and wine with some girlfriends tonight, heading to the arts market on Saturday, and then tackling the chores around the house that I’ve ignored the past few weekends. My husband actually asked me if I still remembered how to do laundry the other day… 🙁   (I’d be more annoyed by this but he ended up doing it himself so I can’t really complain)

Let’s see…for those of you who listened to NPR’s Serial podcast, have you listened to Undisclosed yet? It’s a newer series, un-related to Serial and This American Life, by 3 lawyers who have been researching/blogging about the case. Fair warning, it goes into much greater detail than Serial did and is far more technical, but I’m about half way through and enjoying it.

If you have been living under a rock and have absolutely no idea at all what I’m talking about, check out Serial, a free podcast about a 1999 case in Baltimore about Adnan Syed and the trial that sent him to jail for the murder of his ex-girlfriend. (all kinds of interesting twists and turns about whether or not Adnan is guilty)

There are so many good, free podcasts out there…I’ll have to do a post of my favorites some time.

We saw 2 good movies this week- The Gift and Ex Machina. I’d recommend both of them. We finally have one of those fun theaters with a full bar and reclining lounge chairs. Makes ALL the difference.

the gift ex machina

Speaking of movies- ever have a hard time trying to decide which one to watch? (I can’t even tell you how much time Kevin and I spend scrolling through trying to make a decision) Try out this service- Leanflix

This article on the 27 annoying food packaging quirks anyone who eats food understands is hilarious. Tell me you don’t agree with the individual soy sauce packets…

13 things you should never put in the dishwasher. Huh. I break most of these…

Annnddd…speaking of dishwashers- cooking salmon in them?? Thank goodness you all have me to keep you in the know on such things…

Have a great weekend xo

Awesome stuff- I put a splash in some Prosecco. Would be good in a vodka martini too. And of course on it's own, but where's the fun in that?

Man did I look like I weirdo while wearing this, but it left my skin so soft and smooth
