What I’m Reading
Outlander (I’ve finished the first and started the second but hit a bit of a blah-wall).
Off the Books: The Underground Economy of the Urban Poor (moving slowly through this one but it is g-o-o-d).
What I’m Watching
Outlander on Starz (it started my book obsession and really is a great watch).
Fall premieres: Parenthood, The Mindy Project, Nashville, Scandal. September is a great month for television!
I’ve mostly avoided Netflix this month (success) and we watched The Other Woman. I liked it okay.
What I’m Doing in Chicago
Visiting Oz Park and the Chicago Zoo.
Attending baseball games (Go Cubs!) and enjoying summer weather.
What I’m Eating
Sweet potato hash with a poached egg.
Shmear-ing spicy cranberry sauce on everything I can.
Korean fried chicken and bibimbap at Crisp in Lakeview.
The ultimate comfort soup at XOCO in Near North Side.
We also had late-night cocktails at The Violet Hour (and I tried very hard to stay awake but was not incredibly successful).
What I’m Loving
Wearing blouses. I told you on Facebook that I’d missed out of blouses for the first 27 years of my life and that during this 28th year, I’m wearing them as much as I can. But, matching them with pants and shoes is still a struggle.
Hand lettering and other beautiful things. I’m basically obsessed with Andrea Levendusky. (UPDATE: for some blog spam reasons, I’ve had to remove this hyperlink — just google her!)
Dreaming-up alternative careers: professor, writer, researcher, gossip columnist, ethicist, senator, baker, coffee-shop owner . . .
