A long time ago, I used to do this thing where I’d post a list of things I was into at the moment. I’m trying to do that again, right now. I have no idea how often I might post a list like this, but I can promise you it won’t be more than every other week, mostly because I don’t like very many things. Seriously, this list would be easier for me to post if it was “Five Things I Actively Hate,” but I’m all about the positivity, guys.
I wrote about this a little bit in my January recap, but I am legitimately obsessed with The Good Wife. I don’t remember the last time I was this excited about anything I was watching, really. Normally not a huge procedural fan, but this show is so smart and is so well-cast that I can’t help but find it completely compelling. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I’m all caught up and have to wait for episodes to air.
If you haven’t given this one a chance, I suggest you do.
2. Ice Cream with Sprinkles and Marshmallows
This is my dessert of choice lately, and I’m completely aware that it’s diabetes in a bowl. I don’t care. There’s something about how the marshmallows freeze and the sprinkles crunch that makes me so happy. Whatever, guys. I eat pretty healthy the majority of the time, but I’m fundamentally a dessert person, and this is my jam right now. I’m sure I’ll get sick of it soon, but in the meantime, this is my favorite treat.
It’s no secret that J. and I are pretty in love with our brilliant, frustrating dog, Zoey. She’s one of the sweetest, friendliest dogs you’ll ever meet. Full of raw enthusiasm and unbridled curiosity, she amazes us every day. I guess this is how some people feel about their kids? I wouldn’t know.
But I do know that I look forward to going home to this crazy puppy every day, and I love getting to spend time with her, whether we’re going for a walk and finding things to smell or hanging out on the couch, cuddling.
How could you not love this dog? Seriously, how?
4. Ask Polly
My best friend and I regularly read and dissect the Ask Polly advice column, and it’s always a good time. I think Heather Havrilevsky, who writes the column, gives amazing, thoughtful, and truthful advice. I often identify with the letter writers as well as “Polly’s” response. Full of good advice and often very funny insights, this is required reading, every week.
We even have a saying: “WWPS,” which of course means, “What would Polly say?”
5. “Magazine” by Caroline Smith
I had the chance to see Caroline Smith at First Ave recently, and she didn’t disappoint. She’s one of my favorite artists right now, and this song is so catchy and thought-provoking and fun. I dare you to listen to it and not get it stuck in your head. I love it–and this video.
