How was your Father’s Day weekend? Did you do anything fun with your dad? I could only call mine on the phone since my family lives in a different state, so we don’t get to celebrate in person on Father’s or Mother’s Day. I will be seeing my parents on our family cruise next month though, so that’s not too bad.
This dress is one of the prettiest off the shoulder pieces I’ve seen. The ruffle sleeves are quite unique and are the stars of this number. I get compliments on this dress everywhere I go. I think it’s even cute enough as a wedding guest dress if you’re going to one this season.
I recently just started reading again. I have this weird habit of being really into reading for a period of time, and then putting it off for a couple months, sometimes even a whole year, and then I would pick up a book again. Last time I left off at Yes please by Amy Poehler, I left a couple pages into the book. She is a great writer and she’s funny, but she lost me with all the television show, political and pop culture references. I haven’t been in the states long enough to get all of her jokes, so I felt frustrated and just put her book in the corner (sounds dramatic, but really I have the e-book on my iPad and I just haven’t opened the app since). Then last week I don’t know what hit me, all of a sudden, I decided that I would get into reading again, so I opened up the iBook app, and thought I’d try it again. So far so good, I’ve been enjoying Yes please, learned a couple of new words, mostly idioms I haven’t heard before like “hostage to fortune”. I’ve had a couple of good laughs, Amy is funny, I’m thinking of reading Bossypants by her friend Tina Fey and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling next. Has anyone read Yes please? Did you like it? And is there a good book you recommend for me, given that I’d stick to reading regularly from now on?
