Living life from cover to cover

Weekly six pack, 2017, v17

Recapping this week in light of Comey’s testimony which I’m still trying to process and I don’t think I can comment on until I have my thoughts together. I don’t even know how long that’ll take because shit just got real. Like, really real. 

Reading. Finished The Joy of Leaving Your Shit All Over the Place. Currently reading The Widow of Wall Street and Homesick for Another World. Picked up A Brief History of Seven Killings, Better Than Before, and The You I’ve Never Known. Hitting pause on NetGalley for awhile. Show Us Your Books on Tuesday!

Watching. House of Cards and The Path. Both insane in their own ways and both highly recommended. OITNB, I’m coming for you this weekend. 

Eating. Well, drinking. Cold brew coffee made with Steph’s instructions. It took a few tries but I think I finally found the right ratio (for me) of water to coffee. This makes me happy and it makes my wallet happy since I can stop hitting DD every day.

Preparing. For another round of Whole30. Things have gotten a bit out of control around here and the weight loss has stagnated so it’s time for a reset. This is a great month for me to do it since I have no major plans except for a few days at my parents’ house. If you have a favorite recipe that’s Whole30 compliant, please share it with me. I don’t want to get bored with the same 5. 

Reminding. You to join this giveaway. There’s an Amazon gift card and 100 copies of a book up for grabs!


Hope you all have a great weekend! We’re finishing my birthday week with a Shawshank escape room and dinner at the beach followed by a cheer fundraiser (because God forbid we go a weekend without cheerleading). See you on Tuesday for the best book day of the month!

    So wonderful you are doing the Whole 30 again.
    The tRump fans continue to blow everything off
    About this “administration “. Unreal. But real.
    Your weekend sounds great.
    June is an awesome birthday month. I always
    Share mine with Father’s Day. My 60th was on Father’s Day last year, so my birthday dinner with my chickens was relegated to a Tuesday night. Steph did have a lovely shore weekend before Father’s Day weekend.
    I’m a lucky duck.
    Love, Steph’s Momma

    I need to start making some cold brew again. I was on a big kick of it last summer.
    I’ll have to look at STephs’ blog & see if I can find her post & see what she recommends for measurements.

    All I wanna do all weekend is watch OITNB but I’m doing a stupid garage sale. The Shawshank escape room sounds awesome! I have yet to get to one and really want to. Gotta go work on my Show Us Your Books post!

    I need to do another round of whole 30 too!! It is the perfect reset. House of Cards is so good!!!! We are about half way through the latest season and we just finished Bloodline last night. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Good luck with Whole 30! I researched it and seriously considered doing it but then realized there was no way in hell given upcoming weekend plans. I try to do a variation in terms of cutting sugar and carbs as much as possible (and I barely drink) but damn, that’s a tough program. Hope you had a great birthday!

    Love love love the you can be an asshole too. hahaha

    I’m glad you got your coffee ratio right – that’s the hardest part, making it to your individual taste if you do not like super strong coffee. Luckily you can always water down!
