Our Random Life #25

Another week has passed already…a few random things from this week.

Oh Texas weather…just days ago I photographed spring blooms while enjoying 75 degree weather on my run and today it feels like winter again…The forecast is leaving me hopeful though that spring will return this week.

We love bridal sessions…but we hate not being able to share them! We had an amazing session this past weekend with an absolutely stunning bride, but you my dear blog readers will have to wait until next month to see it!

This past week I asked for book suggestions (still would love to hear yours!) and the cat was let out of the bag that my bookshelf is color coded. It is true, my closet is color coded too…I like things organized! And speaking of organization…I have an obsession with Washi Tape, I use it in my Simplified planner, and my sister brought me this adorable washi tape dispenser with 5 more rolls of washi tape…could it be any cuter!

Les Miserables!!! The movie came out on Friday and Jeremy and I went to Target to grab a copy. It  is so good. We watched in Friday night and then again on Saturday afternoon. Love, Love, Love it. Sure, we can debate about the singers, but it is so powerful and the history nerd in me loves all the references to the French Revolution.

Fun times!

Book suggestions are so hard to do, because much of it depends on reading style…

I’ve recently discovered (and am devouring) the “Outlander” series by Diana Gabaldon – WOW, how did I never read this before?

Then of course the light and romancy books by Nora Roberts are great – in particular the Key Trilogy series, the Bridal Quartet series. Actually, most of her trilogies are great :) (

If you like fantasy, Robin Hobb is great. So is JRR Tolkien, if you haven’t touched it yet. :)

Romance/Mystery and cooking (baking recipes!) from Joanne Fluke on her Hannah Swenson series. Very fun!

James Patterson thrillers, but especially his Maximum Ride YA series or even the new YA Witch and Wizard series. So fun and quick read.

If you prefer the non-fiction stuff, make sure to check out “The Happiness Project” and “Happier at Home” by Gretchen Rubin. ( Excellent and thought-provoking.

so many more that are good, but I think you’ll be perusing the bookstores/libraries enough for now. ;)

As for colour-coordinating your bookshelf – eek! I prefer organizing them by author and series. Although I have to admit yours looks prettier… :)

Hey Kristin! I remembered seeing that tape on here and went hunting until I found it. :) Do you by chance remember where you got the Mara Mi set?
