For the first time on this blog, I’m linking up with Leigh Kramer to share the highlights of my life in February. These are often some of my favorite posts to read by fellow bloggers, so hopefully you enjoy mine!
Sherlock – I finally convinced Jay to watch the BBC series, Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. This show is a delightful retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective stories in modern London. The casting is perfection and each episode is essentially a mini movie.
11/22/63 – Only available to my fellow Hulu subscribers, this mini series follows a man who is able to travel back in time and attempts to prevent the Kennedy assassination. I started the book, but abandoned it about 1/3 of the way through. Two episodes in and the mini-series is proving much more exciting.
New Girl – I was extremely skeptical of this season after I found out Megan Fox would be appearing as a new character to make up for Zooey Deschanel’s maternity absence. Luckily, she does a great job and the show is just as hilarious as ever.
Kindergarten Cop – Get Back to the Carpet! It’s Not a Tumor! Enough said. This movie is hilarious.
Activities / Trips:
Women’s Retreat – Spending the weekend with my mom and a group of women from my home church while getting closer to God was amazing. I’m already looking forward to next year!
Bible Study – We hosted our young adult bible study last week and had a blast catching up with everyone. It was equally amazing that 12 people fit in our apartment. I felt like such a grown up hosting a dinner party : )
Outdoor Run – A whole seven minutes one Monday afternoon. The temperature reached 54, so I decided on the spur of the moment to head outdoors. Phew, I’m out of shape but it felt great to be outside!
Hair Cut – Yes, this counts as a big event for me. I always end up waiting at least six months to get my hair cut again because, well, I’m cheap and I always get super nervous beforehand. I found a Groupon for a local salon and luckily had a lovely experience. Plus, I got a 20% off coupon for my next visit! Win win.
Things I’m Loving:
Steak!! – Rather than going out Valentine’s Day weekend during the freezing cold weather, Jay and I went to our favorite steakhouse a week later. We did some research this time and discovered our usual go-to, the filet minion, is not all it’s cracked up to be. I went with a NY Strip Steak, the tender middle ground between a less flavorful (no fat) filet and much fattier rib-eye. Of course, Jay was looking for ultimate flavor so he went with the rib-eye. We both went home happy : )
Blogging – I’ve started taking a more active interest in reading and commenting on other blogs this month. It’s such a wonderful world and I am looking forward to becoming even more invested as time goes on.
Ebates – A co-worker introduced me to this site that gives you cash back for online purchases. It was extremely easy to sign up and I’ve already earned $5 after just a few (small) shopping “trips.” They also typically have promo codes to use online that I wouldn’t have otherwise known about. Try it out here!
