Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – This book was a ton of fun. I really enjoy video games, so it’s always cool to have a story based on gaming (especially if the gamer group saves the world!). It’s pretty lengthy but is actually a very enjoyable read. It took me a little over a week to get through this one. Again, definitely a good recommendation for anyone looking for a game-relevant storyline!
Okay, I’ve been watching Shameless and Seven Deadly Sins (anime) nonstop on Netflix, with the occasional movie here and there. But the one movie that stuck with me all month long is the 2005 Phantom of the Opera with Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum. I LOVE this movie. I grew up listening to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack because of my mom’s love for the story, and now I can’t help but feel chills when I listen to those songs. If you love lots of opera and singing and for some reason you HAVEN’T seen this yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. Hopefully you love it as much as I do. <3
I’ve also been addicted to watching Heidi Somers (aka Buffbunny) vlogs on Youtube. She just comes across so natural and bubbly and sincere, and every video I watch motivates me to work harder on myself and to be a happier person and really enjoy the life I live. She motivates me to get to the gym and to find a healthy balance between work, life, hobbies, and health. I started watching her videos from the very beginning, and I love that she has stayed true to herself while growing and making a name for herself in the fitness industry. It’s really inspiring seeing someone work so hard and fight for their goals and actually create the life they want to live.
Grilled Cheese with Bacon and Guacamole. Intrigued? You should be. This was the BEST thing I ate this month, hands down. And it is so easy to make! Two slices of bread (I used wheat), two slices of provolone cheese, one slice of mild cheddar, half of a single-serve pack of Wholly Guacamole (because I’m too lazy to make my own!), and two strips of bacon! Mmmm-mmm good!
My all-time favorite memory from this month was being able to take Willow to a park and go swimming in the river! We were surprised with an 80 degree day and took full advantage with an exhausting hike and, for her, a fun swim to cool off! It was so much fun seeing her happy and energetic. I can’t wait until we have more war weather for getting outside to play!
Anyway, those are some of my favorites of…well…everything! None of this content was sponsored or affiliate based. But I definitely recommend making that grilled cheese for yourself. Seriously, TO DIE FOR. Give it a go and let me know what you think!
