Anyone ever tell you you’re overly enthusiastic? I openly admit it. I often refer to myself as someone who is overly enthusiastic about a lot of thing all at once. While some could see that as a bad thing, I choose to see it as a good thing.
When I see/read/watch/experience something I like, I tend to like to repeat it. Over. And over. and over again. This is a list of things I am “overly enthusiastic” about this week: (chances are, it’ll change next week) Read More

Right around the time that I purchased my first subscription to Gamer Girl Monthly, I was also looking for a subscription box that was different from what I have ordered before. I’ve subscribed to LootCrate, Fandom of the Month Club, and most recently Gamer Girl Monthly. I have loved each of them, but I wanted something a bit different.
Thankfully I stumbled across Half Blood Prints Monthly. If the title doesn’t make you smile, the art will.

If you didn’t know, when Pottermore was first released I had a mild identity crisis. For years and years and YEARS I sorted myself (with the help of countless sorting quizzes) into Hufflepuff. Fast forward to September 2011 (OMG IT WAS THAT LONG AGO?!?!?) where young Anna sat at her computer and took the Pottermore Sorting Quiz for the first time and got sorted into… Read More
Almost a year ago I posted a review about Morgan Matson’s book Since You’ve Been Gone. After reading it I bought another one of her books called Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, which sat in my library for months and months until recently, when I decided to sit down and read it.

Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it’s Amy’s responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn’t ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip – and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar – especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory – but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.
It’s only the second Thursday of the year and I’m already behind in these! Siiiiiiiigh! The past few weeks have been a weird range of emotions, but as of this week I’ve been in a pretty awesome mood all week. Spending my days with my awesome company and my evenings watching shows with my husband that make us laugh so hard I feel like I had done a million crunches. Finally getting out of my weird holiday funk.
With all of that, this is what I’m thrilled about this week

This whole week has been a blur of pumpkin bread and laundry. I can’t seem to keep up with either of them. I love making pumpkin bread around this time, but it’s exhausting.
Here is what I’m thrilled about this week!
With my birthday on Saturday I’ve been consciously not buying anything for myself. Of course without the distraction of new TV shows and movies, I keep skipping over to Etsy or ModCloth and falling into the black-hole that has now become my wishlist! Alas, I will hold strong until all the festivities are over.
These are the things that I have discovered this weekend and now I want to own! Read More
