Miscellaneous Monday

A few miscellaneous facts on a Monday:
  • I think I check my Instagram feed 8 billion times a day.  Seriously, it's the first thing I do every time I pick up my phone.  It is my absolute favorite social media app.  I love being able to see simple moments from my friends' days!  And I love documenting my own little life through snapshots.  Follow me, and I will follow you back! - jessicaw1106
  • I've been wanting to watch the movie 500 Days of Summer for a really long time.  And this weekend I realized I still had $3 left on an Amazon gift card from Christmas time.  I downloaded the movie for 48 hours for $2.99 on my Kindle Fire, so it worked out perfectly!  I settled in and watched it Friday night and loved it!  It was really cute and sweet, and not the typical rom-com, which I appreciated.  I'm sure there are lots of different opinions about the ending, but I thought it was perfect!  And my favorite part was the Ikea scene...too cute!  Zooey Deschanel is my favorite actress, and I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, so this movie was basically made of win. 

  • My mom put together some hanging baskets for me, and I put them up yesterday.  I think they make the place look so welcoming!  I can't wait until they fill out more, and start spilling over the sides of the baskets.
  • I am really sad that all my shows are done for the season (Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, Revenge, Modern Family, Parks and Rec, The Office, and Big Bang Theory.  Yes, we watch a lot of TV around here).  However, there are a few shows this summer that I'm excited about: Food Network Star, The Glee Project, So You Think You Can Dance, and my guilty pleasure: Teen Mom.  And of course, Mad Men and Dawson's Creek reruns on Netflix.  What shows are you looking forward to this summer?
  • This past weekend was pretty great.  In a nutshell, it included: a movie, sleeping in, more popsicles, reading on the porch, a Mexican Train night at my mother-in-law's, great church service, Chipotle where we ran into friends, and a big get-together where I saw lots of old friends.  I love weekends.  

Happy Monday!


  1. I was wondering about that movie . . . I might have to watch it now!

  2. Yeah for Dawson's Creek!!!! Love that show!

  3. I didn't like 500 Days of Summer, I found it really depressing.

  4. Love your hanging baskets! There's something about them that just screams "summer!"

  5. I'd love to see that movie! I love Zooey!

    As for shows, we netflix a lot! I'm waiting for Bones, Psyche and White Collar! To fill in the time we love watching How I Met Your Mother. And I smack dab in middle of Grey's Anatomy.
