We have a scooter fanatic over here
I ordered the scooter because I noticed Liv was trying to move herself on the trike by pushing her feet against the ground. We got a lot of good use out of the trike, but I feel like she’s already outgrown it. We looked at the balance bikes, but I thought a scooter would be a better option, especially since she’ll be able to ride it around our beach walks (!). The second I took it out of the box, I assembled it, and she was scooting around the living room within minutes.
So much fun, and another outdoor activity we can enjoy together <3
After the park
and naptime yesterday, the Pilot grilled a feast to enjoy while watching the Wildcats and then the Oscars.
The classic never dies:
I crashed out while reading the Kindle. I’d been sleeping horribly lately, but found that getting back in the swing of reading at night has helped me wind down. Knock on wood, I’d had a few days of awesome sleep (minus the pre-race hotel sleep haha).
I started reading Morning Glory on the Kindle quite a while ago. Just like all of Sarah Jio’s novels, I got sucked it, was lamenting the fact that it would soon be over, and decided to savor it. So much in fact I stopped reading entirely and forgot about it. Whoops. When I finally got some time to open my Kindle, there it was, and I was finally able to finish it last month. It was everything I expected: engrossing, tugged at my heartstrings, and I cried when it was over. Sarah Jio has a talent for interweaving past and present, and she has a lovely way with words.
Morning Glory takes place on a houseboat on Seattle’s Lake Union (very Sleepless in Seattle-esque), when editor Ada leaves her job and New York to escape the memories of a personal tragedy. She soon discovers a mystery on Boat Street regarding the disappearance of a local woman in the 1950s and is determined to unlock the secrets no one will discuss. It’s a quick read, and I highly recommend it!
The second book I “read” was actually listened to via Audible. (Thank you so much to those of you who suggested it! I LOVE it.) To be totally honest, after listening to the audio version, I’m not sure I’d want to read the book. Jenny Lawson is particularly hilarious while she reads Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, especially when she describes the photos in the book and “singing” the titles for each chapter. It’s gold.There is abundant usage of the F word (which is why I listened to this when I was in the car alone, usually driving to yoga, or during strength training. It was a bonus ab workout because I was laughing so hard) and delightfully told with Jenny’s unique voice. It’s a great book if you want to relive her hilariously awkward moments (and thank the world that your father’s wild turkeys didn’t overrun your school and that you never ran into a deer carcass) and if you’re not easily offended.
Here’s a description:
Did you read any awesome books in February? I started The Husband’s Secret last week and am totally sucked in.
Have a great night! <3
