Justin moment: We had the girls' birthday party this month, and Justin was a champ through the event,
Adriana moment: Adriana started tap and ballet this month, and my very favorite moment was when her outfit came in the mail. She was SO FLIPPING EXCITED, it was adorable. I had to do some serious bargaining to get her to even consider taking it off.

Family activity: We went to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History again. Last time we didn't make it to the Discovery Center or past the first five minutes of Big World: Big Sky (the Sesame Street planetarium movie), this time we did and it was great. Can't wait to go back. Neither can Lucia - she randomly inserts "DINOSAUR BONES!!!" into the end of every sentence.
Food: I made my favorite easy chili cheese dip for a Browns game this month...you take a can of Hormel turkey chili, a pack of cream cheese, microwave, stir, and serve with Fritos scoops. It is divine.
Drink: Wine. All the wine. Mostly consumed in one night, at book club.
Book: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I had to come back in and add this, how could I have forgotten?!! This book was amazing and you should read it so we can discuss. I have lots of theories about what was actually going on here.
TV Show: I went batshit insane for Pretty Little Liars this month. I watched the first three seasons over like 2 weeks. Highly recommended.
Movie: I didn't have time for movies what with all of the PLL going on, but I did rewatch Pitch Perfect. It was just as good as the first time.
Game: While GTA 5 played a prominent role in the Diniwilk household this month (eyeroll), I still only have eyes for Paradise Cove.
Clothing: I didn't really buy or wear anything new this month, as I was saving it all for The Blathering. Wait, I take that back. I did have to buy some more suits due to my expanding waistline. I got a great deal on Liz Claiborne cheapie suits for 40% off at JC Penney's. They are not so cute that I felt like photographing them, but it's always nice to feel comfortable in a suit, especially when you have to sit in a car in it for four hours a day. [I am still driving back and forth to Columbus A LOT.]
Accessory: I love this chevron necklace. It was hella cheap off Michelle Money's website. Have I mentioned before that I love her youtube channel, mmandlshow? Seriously, watch it. [And how great did Ashley do on my headshot? So great that I took a screenshot when she tweeted it, because I can't wait to get the disk.]

Other fun stuff:
Someone I know started an ice cream blog (If the Spoon Fits), and I just had to tell you about it. It is basically food porn. She has a great eye for photography and the recipes are to die for. You should check it out!
And if you don't already know, our very own Shalini wrote a real, live, actual book, and she now has a cover for it and everything. I didn't get her permission to steal the picture so I will just link you to her blog post. You should also put Lost and Found on your Goodreads "to read" shelf - I know I did!!! I could not be happier for or prouder of my friend :)
Okay, your turn...what are you loving lately???
