Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are all having a good week. It's been kind of rainy here (it's shaping up to be a pretty wet summer, boo!) and I have been working tirelessly on a week long birthday blog celebration for later in the month. Excited? You should be!

Anyways, this is what I have been up to lately...
New earrings in the shop!
Watching: Scrubs with the boyfriend when he gets out of work, as well as New Girl. We watched the whole first season in a few days and I love it. Too funny! I have also been watching Roswell which I used to watch on SyFy in high school and when I found it on Netflix I knew it was time for a re-watch. 

Reading: Currently I'm reading Hit List by Laurell K Hamilton which is the 20th book in her Anita Blake series. If you're into urban fantasy novels, this series is pretty much the mother on the genre.

Wearing: A cut up t-shirt and shorts/comfy harem pants. And lots of long skirts and dresses when I leave the house. I just got a pair of bandelettes in the mail so I expect those will become a wardrobe staple as well.

Drinking & Eating: My weight in water (only half kidding there) and lots of mexican-type food. I'm big on salsa, tortilla chips, black beans, avocado, the works. And I'll use cumin and chili powder to season just about anything. 

Thinking About: My blog and the plans I have for here the week of my birthday. Also thinking a lot about health and happiness.

Inspired By: The endless "fitblrs" on tumblr as well as this post by Alexandra Franzen. If you haven't checked out that woman's blog yet you really should. She's amazing.

Doing: Watching tv shows (while hula hooping! so it's not all laziness), blog planning, working out, keeping the house clean, reading.

What have you been up to?

Manda Rave


  1. Bandelettes! YES! I have never heard of these before; might be a life-changer!

    The earrings are goregous, lady! Am finishing up the birthday giveaway dreamcatcher tonight - looking forward to the festivities!


    1. The bandelettes are super comfortable, I definitely recommend them.
      And hurrah, I'm so excited to see it!

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous earrings and those bandelettes are so sexy, I love 'em! YAY for birthday planning celebration. :D YAY for hula-hooping! I have been having lots of insomnia, and then when I do fall asleep, I sleep for nearly a whole day at a time and wake up confused, luckily, however, I am feeling better now that I am up.

    1. Thanks :0 Glad to hear you're feeling better

  3. Somehow, I have never read the Anita Blake series. I think I read book 1 ages ago right before I was moving to TX, and then just never got around to picking the series up again. I should do that. By all accounts it's right up my alley.

    1. The later books in the series aren't as good (not bad though) but I really do recommend them. LKH does urban fantasy so well.


Thank you so much for your comments! I love hearing from my readers and your support means a lot to me!
