Sarah Sunday!


Goofy Gabby, flowers from the honeyman, book mail from Ellie, new dresses


Damn this week went by fast.

As always, I was more busy than I intended to be this week. I did some clothes shopping, finally. I bought some pretty dresses (see above), a few shirts, a really comfy maroon sweater, and a ridiculous paisley print blazer that I kind of love. And AND I got a mustard yellow coat (kind of peacoat style) for only $12. Even the cashier was jealous.

I also went to the gym a bit, had dinner with Steph, did lots of laundry, spent a lot of time thinking about why that song “Blurred Lines” comes off as so rapey, tried to hunt down a pair of cats-in-space pants that I saw at Target, and read some books. I didn’t get to cook as much this week as I wanted to – I have a recipe for Doritos-baked chicken that I really want to try. The honeyman and I finally caught up on part 1 of season 5 of Breaking Bad – I really, really want to see the newest episodes but we’ll have to wait until they’re on Netflix or DVD. And season 2 of The Mindy Project started this week too! That show is surprisingly hilarious. Even Treland likes it. Oh, and my sister Heather is running a half-marathon today! Which I probably won’t be able to see because I’m stuck at work, but I’m cheering her on in my head.

This coming week is going to be even busier. I start back at LB (Second Job) again, and I’m going to see my dad next Saturday. Le sigh. I’m such a homebody, and I almost always hate having extra crap to do. Blah.

I read some books! I finished The Lies of Locke Lamora (LOVED IT), Stiff (pretty good), Fangirl (pretty great), and Primates (interesting graphic novel). And now I’m reading Death Warmed Over, which is a zombie detective mystery kind of book, and The Passage by Justin Cronin which is weird but good so far. I have no real hope of finishing these by next weekend (The Passage is HUGE), but I can try.

My brain feels kind of out of it today. I can’t wait to go home and do a whole lot of nothing. Not true, actually I need to grocery shop and clean, but still. How’s your weekend going?





  1. I laughed at the being of homebody – I’m alike, I often prefer staying home with book to going somewhere. Like, it’s SO MUCH FUSS to do that thing when I could just read 😀 And these look to be like some very nice dresses.


    1. Right? Even when it’s something that I kind of WANT to do, like go to the library or see friends, part of me would just rather stay home.

      And thanks, I’m really excited about the dresses! I just need to find shoes to match now, but I hate shoe shopping. Blah.


  2. Ugh, grocery shopping. Are you a fan of grocery shopping or do you dread it like me? (I completely dread it.) Either way, I hope you get all the groceries you want at reasonable prices and make delicious meals with them. My weekend has been all sleeping — I think I must have been fighting something off, because yesterday I kept needing a nap after walking to the kitchen and back — but today I’m hoping I can get some stuff done.


    1. I can go either way with grocery shopping. I prefer doing it on a Monday or something when it’s not as busy, but we usually end up doing it on weekends anyways. It just sucks because I work on weekends, and the last thing I feel like doing after work is buying groceries. Oh well, can’t be helped.

      I hope you get more rest! You probably are fighting something off, and since I JUST got over being sick, I totally support resting to avoid it, lol.


  3. FANGIIIIIIIIRL (that’s the only thing I have to say on the subject, really.)

    Also, BREAKING BAAAAAAD! This end bit is kind of killing me. Like… I’m kind of glad that I HAVE to watch the episodes spread out over a week, cause otherwise I think I might die. Just sayin, it is INTENSE (er)


  4. Homebodies, unite. Or represent. Or whatever it is that the cool kids are saying these days. I’m right there with you. Those dresses look great–when you go someplace fancy wearing one, snap a pic to post so we can see.

    I had mixed feelings about The Passage. I think Cronin was trying to please readers of too many genres at once and thus failed overall. Thriller? Literary fiction? Post apocalyptic? Speculative/sci-fi? I feel that he tried to make inroads towards all of those things but wasn’t successful across the board.


    1. I can’t wait to wear my dresses! I’ll definitely take pics.

      I’m about 240+ pages into The Passage, and I’m not sure what to think so far. Like, it sucked me in and I guess it’s fast-paced enough that I’m not getting bored, but it’s also reminding me a tiny bit of The Stand, except with more immediate danger, I guess.


  5. I’m a homebody too, nothing I love better than being curled up at home sometimes. I really need to check out The Lies of Locke Lamora, I’ve been meaning to read it for ages and the fact that you loved it makes me more keen to try it.


    1. Homebodies! *fist bump* Let’s never go anywhere! And stay inside and read Locke Lamora and all it’s awesomeness 🙂 I’m really looking forward to starting the second book, but I’m trying to get some other reading out of the way first.


    1. He totally legitimizes it. When I tell people about a fun show like The Mindy Project or Cougar Town, people are like “Oh yeah, I’m sure it’s great…” but when I add that even the honeyman thinks they’re funny, people are like “Oh, really? Wow, maybe I’ll check it out!” Creeps 🙂
