This week was a bit tougher than previous weeks. My anxiety about coronavirus is back in full force. I think I had mentally prepared to get through June with restrictions and I had hoped we would be in a different position as a country. Knowing it’s already July and we’re going in the opposite direction we should be going feels disheartening to say the least. If there was any doubt just how important voting is and how important elected officials are (from a local to a national level), we’re getting a major dose of reality for how leadership (or lack thereof) can affect EVERYONE.
I bought a new rug for my office and I am just thrilled with it!
ONE // Hamilton on Disney+
Without a doubt, the highlight of the past week has been Hamilton on Disney+. I was lucky enough to see Hamilton twice on Broadway and I am not going to lie, I preferred watching the recorded performance. The first time I saw the show, I didn’t know the lyrics because I wanted to go into the show “blind” and it goes so fast that I missed a lot of it. The second time was way better, but the audience still did a lot of cheering when actors entered the stage so you miss a lot too. I LOVE that on the recording of it you get to see close ups of the actors. THEY ARE INCREDIBLE. And I freaking love that you can go back and watch it a thousand times. I keep pulling it up to watch my favorite scenes over and over again. I also wanted to share that if you have a Verizon unlimited account you can get Disney+ for free for a year!
TWO // Fresh Soy Cleanser Pump
Exciting news for fellow fans of the Fresh Soy Cleanser. It’s now available in A PUMP! It’s 13.5 ounces (the next biggest one that I usually stock up on is only 6.7 ounces). I am really a fan of anything that comes in a pump and plan on getting two– one for our sink and one for our shower. Mike and I both agree: it’s the best cleanser ever.
THREE // New Funnelneck
J. Crew just released another funnelneck pullover. This one has wider stripes and is available in blue/white and pink/white. The large rugby stripes seem very old-school to me and it looks very comfortable!
FOUR // The Babysitters Club Cast
Did anyone else binge the new Babysitters Club on Netflix? I have been a big fan of BSC since I was a kid and read every book (including the Little Sister series) and every show and movie. Looking back, I think it shaped so much of my adolescence– I started babysitting when I was in the fifth grade and did it until I graduated college. Anyway, I wanted to watch the new series, even if it was created for kids. I’m glad I did– it was so well done. Very nostalgic but also incredibly modern. The show covered everything from periods to protesting! The cast was great!!
FIVE // Yo-Yo Ma & Raffi
“Baby Beluga” was one of our most played cassette tapes when we were kids. For the 40th anniversary (!!!) of the song, Raffi and Yo-Yo Ma did a duet together!!! Makes my heart happy 🥰
