Inspired by Party of 4 by Danielle @ Faster than Forever and 3 Things by Steph @ Life According to Steph


  1. oh, i love the way you did this post, so fun! i have read most of those books but the others are on my list. i got the audiobook for alan cumming and have heard great things! i've been to Zion and loved it (from what i can remember.. it was 7 years ago lol).

  2. I love this!! I might have to steal/borrow this idea if you're okay with that!

    I live on the inside passage in Alaska. I definitely recommend visiting at least once in your life, I tend to take it for granted but if I look at it through the eyes of someone who maybe has never been to Alaska or the PNW in general, it is absolutely beautiful.

  3. Wow. So much comment fodder.

    Some of those nine places might show up in my blog in April. Unless I decide my theme sucks and I change it.

    Enjoy your hour-long tour of Rhode Island. Bwahahahahaha.

    So when I first saw commercials for The Help movie, I didn't know it was a period piece, and I was all: Wow. The rich people are all white and the servants are all black?

    A beach towel but no swimsuit? Hmmm.

    Asparagus - yuck.

  4. Very clever twist with this post!
    You know I'm an age that should be all about Back to the Future. Weird fact: I know I saw the first one, but it really didn't make much of an impression on me. I'm not even sure I saw the second or third.
    I love that you always have a baseball bat in your car.

  5. Oh wow, this is such a fun variation on the theme! You are clever :-)

    Ugh, broccoli!

    One thing I am looking forward to in the rest of 2016? Seeing West Side Story!

  6. Hey, that's me! Glad I could provide some inspiration, and love the variation! I tried to get in to A Man Called Ove and The Martian (3 times!), but gave up. Recently picked up Me Before You though, so hopefully I'll like that one! I was going to say Venice Italy, but there are really way too many places there that I want to see, and if I had to be specific, I'd say the Amalfi Coast. Rhode Island seems really random- why do you want to visit? Yay for seeing Hamilton next month!
