Reading with Toddlers

I’m taking a break from my weekly Weekend Links, so instead I’m going to use these currently posts as a recap from the previous month. Mostly for my own recollection, but I enjoy reading about the everyday, slightly mundane, moments. Maybe you do too.

In January, Nashville had a snow storm! My parent’s came to visit. Jordan and I went on several dates. We signed up for MoviePass and so far we’ve seen I, Tonya. I finished two books: Rules of Civility and Between Shades of Gray. I’m a slow reader, but I couldn’t put Between Shades of Gray down. I read it in 24 hours! Does anyone else love books with short chapters?

Jordan and I finally signed up for a Southwest Credit Card. Might as well reap all of the travel benefit! I’ve already purchase flights for Phoenix and I to visit my brother in April and I have two more flights to book for the first half of the year. Jordan and I want to find more ways to travel this year and know using points will be one way.

Finishing | Yoga With Adriene’s January 30-Day Journey. I wasn’t able to practice 30 days in a row, but I’ve been managing 3-4 times a week. Totally a win for me!

Subscribing | To unsubscribing? From unsubscribing to lists, expectations, podcasts, television shows and even people I follow online. Sometimes I forget the agency I have over how I feel throughout my day.

Wishlisting | It’s still cold, but I’ve been putting thought into clothing items I might need for summer. I have a feeling our weather will swing warm very soon! I’m constantly reevaluating my closet and I know I need jean shorts to round out my summer wardrobe. I’ll probably order these three from Levi (1, 2, 3) and select which one is best.

Watching | We finished watching Turn last month and besides fully emerging ourselves into the Winter Olympics we’re occasionally watching episodes of Seinfeld.

Hearting | It’s so cliche, but I love my little family. Phoenix and Jordan bring me a lot of joy.

  1. Between Shades of Grey is one of the best books I’ve read in the past two years. I can’t stop recommending it to everyone. So heartbreaking yet so well done (and educational really).

  2. I do enjoy reading the everyday, mundane things about other people! Makes me feel like we’re catching up over tea or coffee, you know? And I love books with short chapters, too! I have a slow reading pace, too, mostly because I only pick up where I left off during lunch break and/or before bed time. I wish we have extra hours in a day, though!

  3. I agree with you on so many things here. 🙂 Short chapters ARE great because it’s easier for me to pick up a book at any time when I know I can find a convenient place to stop if I only have a few minutes. I also love your thoughts on unsubscribing! It’s the pathway to sanity these days! LOL!

  4. Yes, can’t wait for the Olympics! And for warm weather… I have been thinking about jean shorts for the last couple of years but haven’t found anything I liked, so I’m interested in your thoughts on those options!

    Also that sweet photo of you two is making me nostalgic for when Hendrik was a little younger. We LOVED Little Blue Truck. I probably still have it memorized 🙂

  5. So don’t worry I thought that Between Shades of Grey was a 50 shades instalment at first . The Goodreads description sounds much more interesting. I really need to get back into the habit of reading. I also get so much joy from unsubscribing (to so many things) it’s crazy how things can just add up and all of the sudden you’re drowning in all of the information.

  6. i’m REALLY hoping to get a moviepass because it seems like such a great deal! and welcome to the sw credit card family. i LOVE having my card… we’re going to nashville in a few weeks FOR FREE! <3 and i'm so on board with the unsubscribing thing. i just need more mental space back in my life. and lastly! tonya harding lives near me and sometimes i forget that she's more than a local celebrity. i saw the previews for i, tonya and i'm SO EXCITED to see it.
