On the Internet
Coffitivity is a web site that plays coffee shop background noise. They say it helps boost creativity while you work.
I have no idea if it really boosts any creativity but I’m at home working often and find that it’s super helpful to have some noise, but nothing I have to pay close attention to. With music, I’m paying too much attention to the lyrics. Although the site does allow you to add in some music if you want.
Pocket is my absolute new favorite tool online. I come across SO MANY links to read on Twitter but usually don’t have time to read them. I just click a little button in my tool bar and Pocket puts the link in a list to read later.
Pocket has a great iPad app and I tend to read through my list at the end of the day while I’m lying with the kids at night when they read.
You should totally “pocket” this article for later if you don’t have time to digest it all now.
I’d been hearing about Duck Dynasty for months and months but without satellite, we’ve been missing out on watching. I couldn’t imagine that we’d get a lot of enjoyment from a show about a group of self-professed redneck duck hunters but I was really wrong.
We borrowed the first two seasons on DVD and got totally and completely hooked, staying up late every night of Spring Break to watch episode after episode all together. I wish you could see Scott cackle at Uncle Si. Jase is my favorite and the girls have a crush on John Luke.
We just realized we could have been watching it online and have watched much of Season 3, much to our disappointment. It’s been forced and bland. But still, Si still seems to pull through with some sort of shenanigan every episode and makes it worth the 30 minutes.
In My Kitchen
Chocolate covered espresso beans
Espresso beans by themselves? Grody. Chocolate covered espresso beans? Heavenly.
Love having these to snack on in the afternoon. They’re not cheap though so wait for a sale.
In My Closet
I picked these sandals up for $14 with free shipping from a Loft sale a few weeks ago. I was ecstatic when they were a perfect fit.
If you haven’t noticed in my What I Wore Wednesday posts, I’ve been wearing the hound out of them this month—capris, jeans, dresses—they go with anything.
I’ve mentioned it in my What I Wore Wednesday posts but I adore my striped maxi. I can wear it so many ways and I plan to keep experimenting through the summer.
In My Hands
I knocked off an item from my Growth Plan and have been crocheting this month!
My friend Becky met me at Starbucks a few weeks ago and taught me the basics. I’ve been practicing and finished the roll? spool? bundle? of yarn she gave me. It turned out like a very wonky doll blanket. The sides have more waves than a pageant winner in a parade. I’m horrible at it so far but I do like it.
OK, you haven’t been reading if you don’t know the biggest new thing I’ve been into this month is our new puppy Bella. She’s a terrible amount of work but oh so fun-loving and sweet and worth it.
