It's Monday and we saw Waitress!

Hi friends! It's been a busy and snowy week around here. D went back to school this week, so we tried to get back into our routine. Friday night, husband and I got to see Jessie Mueller in Waitress before she leaves the show. It was great. It's funny and heartfelt and a wonderful night at the theatre.

They sell little pies! How cute and delicious!
BG also got her own theatrical experience this weekend, when she saw Daniel Tiger Live with her Grammy as her Christmas present. There's still quite a bit of snow on the ground today here in NJ, but D is off to school and husband is off to work so little girl and I are cuddled up and enjoying our Monday morning!

Snow days are good for reading, aren't they? I finished This Is Where You Belong, which gave me lots of great ideas for loving my community. I was devastated (in the best way) by the short stories in Roxane Gay's Difficult Women, learned to be a bit more realistic about parenting with No More Perfect Moms, and raced through the stunning debut novel The Mothers

Up next for me is Orphan Train. What have you been reading?


  1. I just finished The Mothers this weekend. I will definitely be on the lookout for other books by Brit Bennett!

  2. A good few new to me titles here - it sounds like the new year has gotten off to a great start for you reading wise. Happy reading!

  3. How fun that you got to see Waitress! I've heard so many great things. And I'm totally looking forward to reading Difficult Women.

  4. I enjoyed The Mothers...and I'm curious about No More Perfect Moms and Difficult Women.

    How great that you saw the play. Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  5. Snow days are great for reading! Looks like you have some great titles you're working on. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  6. I like the "mom" books.

    I hope you are having a good week.

  7. I definitely want to go and see Waitress! I saw that it is supposed to be on national tour this year so I hope it heads to the DC area.
