Wednesday Whats

What I’m reading:

I just finished Brene’ Brown’s Daring Greatly, which I had seen praised without end from one end of the internet to the other. There were many things that I appreciated in it, and several ideas that will need to simmer for a while. It’s definitely a book that would benefit from a discussion with others.

I also read Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art by Madeleine L’Engle and wanted to turn right back to the beginning again as soon as I reached the last page. I have difficulty picturing myself as any kind of artist (how much writing do you have to do before you are willing to call yourself a writer?), but this book made me want to create without fear. I loved her voice and tone and passion.

I’m also currently reading The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson: Book Four) and The Mysterious Benedict Society in the effort to keep up with my fourth grader.

What I’m wearing:

I’m absolutely loving this striped cardigan from LOFT. I have it in charcoal and wear it constantly. It’s definitely the perfect weight for Houston winters.

What I’m watching:

I know there is nothing cool about this. But Josh and I are absolutely watching the final season of American Idol. We started watching when we were dating in college and like it more now than ever before. The judges, y’all. They are so pleasant. Harry/J-Lo/Keith makes Nicki/Mariah seem like a bad dream.

What I’m listening to:

So excited about the launch of a new podcast by one of my favorite bloggers! Anne Bogel from Modern Mrs. Darcy is now podcasting at What Should I Read Next? and has already had some amazing guests. Apparently all her readers are trying to get interviewed, but that is seriously the last thing I need – she has already maxed out my TBR list with recommendations that I can’t wait to get to! Her guests so far have been fantastic choices, and I’m so glad to have subscribed.
