The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 03/15/2015






Reading:
I'm currently reading A Little Life. Its depth is seductive. I'm not very far into it and I'm already enamored.


Eating:
Another low key week on the cooking front. The only newish thing I tried were some very lazy mini pizzas made on English muffins. We made a few different kinds. I was partial to the Alfredo sauce/caramelized onion combo. Nom.


Drinking:
The Book Riot Quarterly box came this week and it included this bitchin' flask. I'd like to drink everything from it now. I might even put my morning coffee in there because it's just so cool.


Blogging:
My 14 year old daughter guest reviewed Mosquitoland by David Arnold. I hope you'll check out her thoughts. (I'm a wee bit proud.)

Choosing was hard.
Celebrating: 
Yesterday was Pi Day! My sister, brother-in-law, and nephews were in town for a wrestling tournament. We were able to hang out with them and we all went to a local joint that is famous for their pies. What a great day. (I had banana cream, in case you were wondering.)

Sharing:
My pal's kitty had a boo boo. We had to send him some love:





I hope you all have a great week! I'd love to hear what's going on in your neck of the woods!

  1. I just read the review by your daughter. I didn't notice much of a difference...in a good way :) ...from your reviews. And that is a compliment.

  2. Oh that Pie! Oh those Pizzas! You're killing me as I just went on a sugar reset this morning. I'll look forward to your thoughts on A Little Life. That cover just looks so pained!!

  5. Cute cat video, and how sweet of you and your daughter to send him a care package! (I had to watch - I used to have a kitty named Chaucer, too.) Now I need to check out your daughter's review. :-)

    1. Ha! Told my kid that if we go see Cinderella this week I'm going to take my flask just to embarrass her. Hehe.

  7. I think my comment disappeared. :-(

    Anyway, I love the Book Riot swag, but I unfortunately usually already have at least one of the books/ARCs, so I've not joined. I guess my IndieSpensable subscription will have to suffice.

    Way to go on Pi Day!

    I look forward to yuor review of A Little Life once you've had the time to digest it.

    1. I'm trying to decide what to do about the Book Riot box too. I'll usually only really love one item so it feels like I'm not getting $50 worth, know what I mean? I'm wondering if I shouldn't cancel but them I'm afraid I'll miss out on something INCREDIBLE, lol.

  9. I can't wait to read A Little Life! Waiting (not so) patiently for the library to let me have it. And those mini pizzas look amazing!! Have a great week.

    1. I can see why there is such hype about the book. It's big and glorious and I have to force myself to do anything else other than read 24/7 ;)

      You have a great week too!
