Monday Obsessions

Go ahead and take that shocked look off your face -- almost 3 Single Gal blogs in a row.  I'm trying to come back to life and be a good blogging partner to The Housewife who has really been putting in a lot of work here lately. {Thank you Housewife!} 

First, I want to be very up front {upfront? one word? two? discuss.} about the fact that I realize I am late to the "OhMyGoshJohnGreenIsAmazingAndPerfect" YA Party.  My friend Em has been praising his genius for, well, a really long time and I just now picked up "The Fault In Our Stars" this past week.  It's about two kids with cancer.  And they fall in love. And I haven't finished but it's so beautifully written.  And I am basically scared to keep reading because I know I'll walk around the house crying for days. I can just feel it. {not that I can even say I haven't been doing a lot of that lately but whatev} Anyway, I haven't even finished it and I am obsessed.  

I am also obsessed with the mere thought of my upcoming vacation with The Housewife.  It seems like everyone on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram is all "Oh, look at my awesome view from our condo." or "Leaving for the beach all next week." Well people.  It will finally be my turn in several weeks.  I'm trying not to hate everyone already on their vacations, but it's really hard for me not to. 

So, in the meantime, I'll just have to look at beach pictures on Pinterest like these: 

One other thing -- I am ridiculously obsessed with the song "Some Nights" by Fun.  The beat makes me happy. I'm not sure why.  But I'm not questioning it, that's for sure.  It's straight up on repeat in my car for always right now. 

What is everyone reading these days? I will obviously need some more books since I will have plenty of time to read during my week long beach trip. 

Love you. Mean it.
