hello weekend.

The weekend is here and we're ready to welcome her with open arms. As I quickly type this, I am off to make a round of hot cocoas and sit on the couch to watch Arthur Christmas with the boys. Then it's off to bed for the little ones and a quick pick up of the house for me. I've fallen into the routine of relaxing on Friday nights and I'm looking forward to my hot bath, a good book, a glass of wine and, if I'm lucky, painting my nails without any disturbances. Chances are I won't, but I'll certainly try.

Speaking of books, after watching The Killing and becoming completely absorbed into that show, I've decided to start reading more mystery/crimes novels. While this genre always grabs my attention, it's hard to find good, well written crime fiction. My mom has suggested a couple authors from Norway and Iceland. Do you have any suggestions?

  1. Ooo, you need to share what you come up with! Other than Gone Girl and John Grisham I haven't ready many mystery/crime novels, but I'd love to.

    Also, I love that photo! Beautiful!

    1. I just started Snowman by Jo Nesbo and it's pretty good! I don't want to put it down, so that's a good sign. My mom swears by her list of Icelandic and Swedish authors.

  2. Hello! I just found your blog this evening ... it is beautiful. I really have enjoyed myself reading through all your older posts, especially the good food and poetry posts, and look forward to reading more. ♥

    sorry I can't help you with any mystery suggestions...I mostly read non fiction. I can give you lots of those suggestions! :)

    1. Hi Sarah! Thanks for stopping by and thank you for the lovely comments. I wish I had more time to write good food and poetry posts :) Hopefully in the near future!

      I actually love non fiction too. As an English Major/Creative Writing I enjoy all genres. If you have any good non fiction recommendations let me know!

    1. it was SO good!! i don't know what to watch next because i don't think it will compare. suggestions??

      so, our floors are actually a laminate. our original plan was hardwood, but then when we started "shopping" there were so many options. i started to like the engineered wood and ended up really liking the laminate. and it has a lifetime warranty! with three kids and a big dog it just makes sense to put it upstairs. so far, i highly recommend it!
