Good Morning Friends!
It’s Monday morning yet again. Here are some of the best things I’ve read in the past couple weeks.
Let’s start off with the Wonder Woman links. Warning, these contain spoilers. I struggled to put my response to this movie into words. It wasn’t until I read articles like this one that I knew I wasn’t the only one to tear up, to walk out of that theater in a wild emotional space.
I whispered to Girlie during one of the first scenes “The Princess Bride got jacked!” Thanks Buzzfeed for putting this list together for those of us obsessed with Antiope.
There is a secret about the character Chief that you would only have understood if you speak Blackfoot. Or if you read this review.
As a follow up to all those powerful women, here’s a great post (from Shape magazine of all places!) about moms inspiring daughters to love themselves.
Saturday evening I was invited to a last minute cookout by the mother of one of Girlie’s friends. It was one of those last minute get together’s where things kept going wrong. It was a great reminder of the joy in just getting together with friends rather than worrying about entertaining. I told my new friends all about half ass dinner parties and when I got home I found this Scary Mommy post which was inspired by this post. I see a lot of crappy dinner parties and random pot lucks in my future.
In case you wanted to make something fancy to bring to a friend’s half ass dinner party you could make this amazing looking Watermelon Frose.
That’s it for today! If you’ve read or written anything you think I might like please share it in the comments!
