A Note from the Director: A Few of My Favorite Things #03

Number OneThe little gem from my sparse jewelry collection. I received it as a Christmas gift from a good friend a couple years ago. It is perfect for a reader like me and I adore wearing it. I believe it was a part of Anthropologie’s collection.Image Courtesy of GoodReadsBuy on Amazon.comNumber TwoThe audiobook of Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein narrated by Morven Christie and Lucy Gaskell. Words can barely express right now how much I love this book. It has made my drives to and from work so enjoyable and heartbreaking. I’m sure my fellow commuters are getting a great laugh at me as I gasp in surprise and cry in anguish. I’m almost done with the book and can’t wait to head back to work tomorrow.Number ThreeBrad Paisley’s newest album was released on August 25th. I’ve been a fan of Paisley for a long time. He’s one of the few artists that both my husband and I enjoy listening to and “Moonshine in the Trunk” is loaded with some great sons. If you haven’t heard or seen “Shattered Glass”, it premiered on The Ellen Show a couple weeks ago, here’s a chance to do just that. It’s the […]

A Note from the Director: A Few of My Favorite Things #2

So Friday was my birthday, and I received some pretty stellar gifts from my friends and family. My husband found these wonderful books at Half Price Books. While I’m most excited about The New Biographical Dictionary of Film because it has been on my Amazon Wish List for ages, I will never turn down books regarding Doctor Who. The quote book is so much fun. It starts out with the first quote from each incarnation of the Doctor. The book is new enough to include Peter Capaldi’s first words as the Doctor. My good friend, Erin, is continuing to feed my Supernatural addiction with a swank new t-shirt she found. And finally, my sister, who is not a Whovian, found this TARDIS scarf on etsy courtesy of Nerdy Girl Creations. Back in June, one of my friends gave me my birthday gift a bit early. She gave me a cute little lunch bag and an awesome Hallmark ornament that had me tearing up. Overall, an excellent birthday with some spot on gifts. What’s the best birthday gift you’ve ever received? Twitter 5 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0

I am a reader. And since I am a reader I rarely, if ever, go anywhere without a book. I’m also a girl and am required, by some kind of unknown girl law, to carry a purse. Said purse has certain requirements. The purse must not be too big.I don’t have kids; I don’t need a mom bag.The purse must not weigh a ton.My shoulders are pretty weak due to a shoulder injury in college so I don’t like a lot of extra weigh pulling on them.The purse can’t be too girly.I’m a girl, but I’m not 12. I don’t want glitter and flowers and bright colors.I don’t change my purse with the seasons so it better go with everything.The purse must be worth the money I’m paying for it.I’m cheap, but I’ll dish out the cash if I see the value in something.The purse must be able to hold a book and/or my Nook Color with case.I’ll refer you back to opening lines of this post.After weeks of searching the local stores, I started looking for something online.
