Thursday Confessions

Sparkles and Lattes

1.
I somehow missed the Joanna Gaines memo... I've never seen the show Fixer Upper, have no desire to go to Magnolia Market, and I wouldn't be able to pick out the below couple if I was in line with them at the airport. They look nice enough, but I feel it's way too late to jump on the Magnolia bandwagon now!



2.
If I bump my head really hard on a cabinet or while playing with Parker, I irrationally fear a concussion. To check my mental acuity, I silently review multiplication facts. Once I get to seven times seven, I assure myself that I'm okay. Yes, I realize this is ridiculous.


3.
I didn't love Talking as Fast as I Can. I was twelve kinds of excited to score it at the library, but I had some issues with it: the writing was a bit scattered, it was very surface level and went into zero depth on tons of topics, and it was labeled Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, yet actually covers Graham's early life, too. Speaking of Gilmore Girls, I wanted much more on this topic! I feel like Graham could have written an entire novel solely on GG's early years, and while she did devote a chapter to early GG and one also to the reboot, it wasn't enough for me (though I thoroughly enjoyed her thoughts on the early Gilmore Girls series - so much has changed and Graham's words were humorously golden!). She did point out at the end that the reboot ended with a "cliffhanger" and I'm hoping that means there are more episodes to come!




4.
If I'm out driving and find myself stuck behind a car that's moving like molasses, I internally recite these magic words from The Devil Wears Prada: By all means, move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me. It makes me laugh instead of getting cross :)

  1. I really want to read Graham's book. I heard it was good. Too bad there isn't more on GG. I love that show. I love that part in Devil Wears Prada. I feel the same exact way. I love Fixer Upper, but I have been watching it forever. I don't record it, just catch it when I see it is on.
