What I'm Into: February 2017

Tuesday, February 28, 2017


February is wrapping up and a new season is soon to be underway. It's still very much winter here. The season I'm talking about has to do with Theatre Life. We're down to a week of performances for our current show which will leave us with rehearsals for one production.  The results of the line-up of upcoming auditions will clue us into what's next.

I'm currently planning a trip to MA SC MA SC MA. I know I JUST got back to blogging, but I'm not sure what my time away will mean for this space. We'll find out!

In the meantime, here are a few pictures from my Mom's 50th and some things I've been into lately. 

What I'm Watching

That Girl on Amazon Prime. Not sure how I've never heard of this...it's amazing. 

Roman Holiday, The Finest Hours, The Lake House, Brigadoon. 

One show I want to check out is called Letters from Ladies. My Mom found this one and it's basically a tv show version of a podcast.

In the Kitchen

Super Bowl food: veggie dip with bread, wheat thins, and sesame crackers; pigs in a blanket; bbq little smokies.

A dinner of southern sides (macaroni and cheese, bbq beans, cornbread, and carrot slices for good measure) after I had a mishap with our Instant Pot that ended with the pork roast not being done in time.  Beef stroganoff. French toast.  My grandma's spaghetti. Buttermilk biscuits. A blueberry coffee cake that was mistaken for store-bought. Also, this cake, these sandwiches, these meatballs, and this soup.

I'm back to craving chocolate chip cookies alllll the time. I used to make them at least once a month. Maybe I should do that again.

For my Mom's birthday, we went the nostalgic route and had chili cheeseburgers and onion rings. It was my very first time eating a chili cheeseburger and I really have been missing out!

Around the Internet

Woolf's essay "Street Haunting" inspired me to write about the February morning I spent with it. I also read Dickens's essay "Night Walks" and Franklin's article on getting a good night's sleep.

This article really resonated with me. I'm not a wife. I'm not a mother. But, I keep house for five and sometimes THAT becomes my identity and how I determine my worth.

Found Podcast - the jury is still out on this one. It's an interesting concept.

The Splendid Table Podcast - America's Test Kitchen Radio Podcast was one of my top five. ATK has gone through some changes and the podcast ended. I've been looking for a replacement and I may have found it!

My newest goal is to express my excitement over the books I'm reading the way she does.

I've been reading the book of John lately. There is always more to learn and God is faithful to teach us!

Linking up with Leigh!

What are you into?


  1. I can't 100% relate to the "Why she's sad on Sundays" post but I'm definitely leaning that way! Taking care of our childless household is fairly simple compared to the writer's, but I can relate to some of the sentiments.

    Also, I LOVE Emma Watson! Isn't she the sweetest? I'm going to follow her book club.

  2. Happy Birthday to your pretty mum!
    And thanks for the fun overview of life at your place!

  3. I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting chocolate chip cookies all the time. ;)


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
