We just got back from a quick minibreak in Charleston, SC and enjoyed the extra day off work for Memorial Day. With our Ireland trip coming up in June, there’s lots of activity in the Kamery household! Check out Leigh Kramer’s linkup to see what other bloggers are into this month too!
Friday Night Lights – While I’m waiting for Younger Season 5, I’m looking for a new show to fill the void. I watched the first few episodes of this one, but I’m not sure I’ll stick with it. Any other suggestions??
King of Queens – After taking a break from some of the HBO shows, we switched back to an old favorite.
Avengers: Infinity Wars – Admittedly, I didn’t have the highest hopes for this one. I didn’t think they’d be able to pull all the superheros together in a way that made any sort of sense. Well, I was wrong. Centering the story around Thanos was key. High entertainment value and lots of laughs made this a success in my book.
Dunkirk – I’m not sure how I feel about this harrowing depiction of the evacuation of Dunkirk in WWII. I didn’t know any of the backstory, so I was expecting a typical battle heavy movie. Instead, this is a focused piece on the experience of a few different men involved in the evacuation. There’s not much dialogue, but you are drawn into the emotions of these characters. It’s certainly unique…
Tour de Pharmacy – The mockumentaries continue!! This is now the fourth Andy Samberg parody we’ve watched and they continue to make us laugh!
The Return of the King – I convinced Jay to watch this one night when we couldn’t agree on anything else. I’m eager to finish out this trilogy since I finished reading the books a few weeks ago.
Check out my latest reading roundup post here! I’m currently reading:
Mothers Day Wine Walk – I went home for Mother’s Day weekend to join my mom on a wine walk in Mechanicsburg. All the downtown shops opened their doors and featured wine samples and snacks. We had a terrific time browsing and enjoying the drinks!
Bon Jovi Concert – My work raffled off free tickets to see Bon Jovi and I won! He still sounded amazing and thankfully sang all of his hits.
Family BBQ/Birthday Party – My in-laws came to visit one Saturday for a surprise birthday / bbq for Jay’s uncle. Unfortunately, it rained all day, but we still enjoyed hosting and catching up with everyone. Plus, I had an excuse to test cake and icing recipes and play with my decorating tools!
Turkey Hill Ice Cream Social – I’m a member of the online Turkey Hill Nation group (basically because I want free ice cream). Well, I applied for their ambassador team to promote the new Decadent Delights line and got in! They sent me free coupons, an ice cream scoop, and a T-shirt!! Our bible study kindly agreed to test out the new products and we all loved them. Thanks Turkey Hill! Fan for life over here.
Charleston, SC – At the end of May, I joined Jay on his quick business trip to Charleston. We spent two days in and around the city. Here’s our itinerary. Keep an eye out for a trip report soon!
What I’m Loving
Garden Seeds – I planted tomato and pepper seeds on Easter…and waited and waited for them to grow. Three weeks later nothing happened so I threw them out and planted new ones. In less than two weeks all my tomato seeds sprouted!! My peppers took a little longer, but they’re popping up too. Hoping to get them into my garden soon.
Scribd – I cannot profess my love of Scribd loudly enough. I got a 3 month bonus trial as part of an ebook bundle and it’s been phenomenal. I’m actually listening to audiobooks! My library just can’t compete with their selection, especially for newer books. I’m actually considering keeping it… If you want to try it out, you can use my link to get two months free!
Balega Athletic Socks – A friend introduced me to these after I admired her pair. They’re ridiculously comfortable and hold up well even through many loads of laundry.
