Original post

It’s hard to believe we’re already through the first month of 2018, and at the same time, it feels like January lasted forever, too. In lieu of a ‘Friday Faves’ today, I thought I’d share a little recap of the first month of the year!

ShoppedJanuary was all about sweaters + booties it seemed. I’m generally not one of those people who can purchase next season items when the current season isn’t even half over yet. SO, I’ve been (kinda) stocking up:


Read/Reading: At the beginning of the month, I read The Seven Husband’s of Evelyn Hugo, which was phenomenal. It has a plot twist you don’t expect at. all. Next, I picked up One of Us is Lying, which was a bit YA (I didn’t realize this when I picked it up) but the plot was interesting and it was a well-written book. Before the month ended, I started Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I’m still getting into the plot, but so far it’s a really good one.
Travel: We roadtripped to Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia a couple weeks ago with some friends and Seth for a weekend of skiing. It’s become an annual trip that I look forward to SO much every year. I’m actually hoping to hit the slopes a little closer to home this weekend before the Super Bowl, too.

Songs on Repeat:
Supplies, Filthy, Say Something – Justin Timberlake
The Middle – Zedd/Maren Morris
Stir Fry – Migos
TV Shows: Last weekend, I started (ok, and finished) The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon. OMG. I cannot recommend this show enough. It’s HILARIOUS, smartly/well-written and well acted. I saw on Instagram they just started filming Season 2 – which cannot come soon enough. I’m also watching Season 2 of Victoria, which follows the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign. If you liked The Crown, you will definitely like this one, too.
Movies: I finnalllyyyy saw The Mountain Between Us. Two things: Idris. Kate. Yessssssss. It’s definitely different from the cook, which I really liked, but the movie itself is still great. (I still highly recommend the book!) I also finally watched The Glass Castle. It’s been years since I read the book, so I can’t draw a comparison there, but the movie was really good. It’s about an over-the-top family growing up in poverty in West Virginia, so of course I love it. Definitely recommend the book, too.
