I [heart] Instagram

Three weeks in, and I’m still hanging on!
I WILL complete an ENTIRE month of #fmsphotoaday prompts (via Fat Mum Slim)!
Now the question remains: challenge myself to another month? Or try a different set of lists? Maybe Clickin Moms #cmglimpse? Hmmm… Decisions, Decisions.

Friday Favorite – The Catcher in the Rye

At work yesterday afternoon, a friend and I got to talking about books.  Favorites came up in conversation, and I was inspired to photograph my favorite book for today’s blog post!
I don’t know what it is about this book that I love so much. It seems to be the kind of story that you either love, or you hate. I’ll be honest and say that the reason I was drawn to read the book in the first place, is because it was banned in so many schools in the United States. I needed to know what all the fuss was about.
I’ve read The Catcher in the Rye countless times. Every time, I’m reminded just how much I love it. There’s something about its painful awkwardness that keeps me coming back. I know that it turns some people off, but I guess it makes me feel better about myself and my own awkwardness.


What’s your favorite book?

Macro Monday – A good Old Fashioned Book

I’ve been trying to think of new things to photograph with my macro lens. When we got home from the library this afternoon, I realized that a book would be perfect! Why hadn’t I thought of taking a photo of a book before!?
I read 69 books in 2013, and I’ve set a personal goal to read at least 55 in 2014.  I usually read on my Kobo because of the convenience of it, but I still LOVE a good old fashioned BOOK book.
I’m in the middle of a book on my Kobo right now, but as soon as I finish it, this will be my first full read of 2014, and I can’t wait!

Elf on the Shelf – Year 3, Day 17

We had him pegged after he showed us his hockey skills the other morning, but now there’s really no doubt about it… Ruettiger is a Dey.  This morning we found the little bookworm holed up with his reading glasses on, and a Rudy-sized copy of the Paper Bag Princess!


Go right ahead and PIN this idea for your Elf on the Shelf!
