1. Read Jacyee Dugard’s Book – A Stolen Life
This was a tough book to read. Not tough in that it wasn’t interesting, or that it was too hard, no not in that way at all… it was tough because wow Jacyee Dugard’s life was actually really stolen at age 11 for 18 years. The explicit details of her kidnapping and sexual abuse and life in captivity were horrific. The first night I started reading this book I got to about 20% in (I read on my kindle and it goes by %). I thought, how can I stop here, I will have nightmares, and I for sure did. I thought about not reading on after that – it wasn’t helping me sleep (I read before I go to sleep). I decided that no, I had to read on because I knew it ended – that she is free today. I am glad that I did finish this book.
2. Cook with Shrimp
I never did this. Total totally trying this June edition fail.
3. Buy pants from Target
I totally did this! I purchased gray capris for under $25. I do recommend trying pants on when purchasing them anywhere. You just never know.
4. Watch the new show Save Me on NBC
I LOVE this show! I am sad though that it probably won’t have another season.
5. Read Amanda Knox’s Book – Waiting to be Heard
Before reading this book I had some knowledge of the story – but not really. Now I feel like I know enough to talk about it… but I do feel a little weird that I know it specifically from Amanda’s perspective. I found it interesting to learn what prision was like in Italy and learn the details of the trial and how it’s unfold. I will continue to follow this story… and yes, I guess that I do believe that Amanda is innocent after reading this book.
NF: I took this picture this morning… I like to think he wasn’t too keen on the bright yellow plaid overall shorts outfit I put him in, but he really doesn’t seem to care what he’s wearing. He looks arodable though. Ohhh baby boy!! Don’t grow up on me too fast!
Target Whale Soap Dispenser: I got this on sale at Target for $10. I’ve been eyeing it for a while now. It’s super cute, and my soap dispenser I bought at a craft fair for $25 broke! I know this isn’t sophisticated adult, but it’s blue and totally matches my bathroom and I love it’s whimsicalness! The way the soap comes out is great too. I’m REALLY loving this!
JP Morgan Corporate Challenge (NewsChannel9 WSYR)
JP Morgan Corporate Challenge: I ran my first race last night! 3.5 miles in 40:45 – pace 11:39 min/mile. Not too bad for my first… this will be my time to beat now. I didn’t really know what to expect – or how far I had left to go… but now I know what 3.5 feels like in a race and I’m excited to try again. I understand why people like doing it – I felt so accomplished going across the finish line. And everyone was so happy and friendly. It was like a big party!
The TV Show Save Me on NBC: I decided to watch this show as part of my I’m totally trying it June edition. And I like it. It’s about a lady who just recently started to think she’s channeling God. It’s funny, and every episode has a lesson, and I like that, it gets me thinking. I know it’s a summer show they taped and now are cranking out the episodes and it’ll likely never have another season… but I hope that it does! NBC, I’ll surely watch!
Clinton Kelly’s Bacon Egg & Cheese Cassarole: My sister made this recipe again for Father’s day. You can see where she made it for Mother’s day here. This time she made the biscuts bigger. Either way is good – it all depends what you want. This is becoming a family favorite!
