Friday Showing

I've been in a bit of a fairy-tale mood, lately. My book shipment of these came in last week and I scored this gem from the book nook inside the library the other day, so something Cinderella-y seemed appropriate for a weekend viewing. I haven't watched Ever After in forever and I loved this movie growing up! Who was your favorite Cinderella of the 90s, Drew Barrymore or Brandi? Don't you think Angelica Huston makes the perfect evil stepmother? What is your favorite live action fairy tale movie?

Friday Morning

After downing a few bottles of cold/flu medicine, I'm feeling much better now that it's the weekend. In anticipation of the new Harry Potter bound script, a coworker and I will be working an event this evening that I'm totally psyched for. I'm leaving work a little early so I can properly dress for the occasion. If you have already sorted yourself and you're a proud Ravenclaw, I'm sending you a high five! There's a day trip planned for the weekend and I will be continuing the massive clean out of my apartment after rereading sections of Marie Kondo's book, The Art and Magic of Tidying Up.  What do you have planned for the weekend? 




this week's favorites...





Since this year's Summer Reading Program is all about the Olympic, I chose to go my own way with programming instead of following the manual's suggestions. I worked around 90's teen game shows and changed them around to make them fun for kids today. As far as the movie line-up, I decided to stay with the 90's sports theme, and this is what I came up with!  Even though Heavy Weights is not really sports related, it fits in with the fitness theme. You know you loved these movies growing up!!!

What My Day Looks Like


Now that I have more than five minutes to myself after spending the last eight years in college and grad school, I don't want to waste a minute of my time. Although I'm getting rest and enjoying down time, it's hard to go to sleep knowing I have all this free time to do whatever I want. This is what my day looks like in a nutshell: 


6:45 - 7: :30 a.m. - Put on makeup, listen to music, do a little dance and get ready for work.

7:50 a.m. - Eat breakfast, make tea for the week and grab my already made lunch.
(Sundays are for food prep)

8:30 - 6 p.m. - Head to work: email, network, collaborate, take notes in meetings, create programs, collection development and of course catch up on podcasts on my lunch break. 

6:55 p.m. - Start dinner, which by the way loving my free month of Blue Apron recipes. 

7:35 pm. - French Lessons

8:30 p.m. - Get inspired with half an hour of a few TED Talks. 

9 p.m. - Tending to my long list of books to read. Or catching up on shows, I just started Game of Thrones, I know!!! Can we talk about Emilia Clark, she is my everything!!!


10: 45 p.m. - Hit the sheets
