Finally Friday

This week has been a doozy. We hosted a dinner for 12 people last night (and of course I took zero photos) and work was basically trying to kill me all week. Now that it's Friday I feel a weight lifting and am ready to immerse myself in the weekend.

Book Review- Hausfrau

On the flight home from Hawaii I finished reading Hausfrau... I'm torn. I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get behind it. I felt like the main character was weak when she needed to be strong and assertive when she needed to be passive. Maybe that was the point. There was a sense of doom throughout the book and I caught the foreshadowing early on so I guess I knew what I was getting into. Not to give anything away, don't expect the end of this book to leave you in a good mood.

Maybe my mistake was timing. I read this coming home from a wonderful vacation where I fell even more in love with my husband, deepened friendships with our co-vacationers, and generally felt a metric fuck-ton of joy. This book is probably better read on a rainy evening by yourself with a glass (or six) of wine. The beautiful prose and poetic tone just didn't resonate on a airplane surrounded by people I like.

The cover may be beautiful but the content is dark

Instagram Update

I caved and started the dogs their own Instagram account. I know. I'm that girl. I look forward to posting pictures of them in outfits, posing adorably, and basically doing all of the annoying stuff that I was too embarrassed to put on my own Instagram.

Love these derps
