Monday Love List Number Eleven!

I didn't forget!!! It's a little late but HAPPY MONDAY!!!

I have had a very busy, non-stop Monday and expect the rest of my week to be the same. I am preparing to go on a week+ vacation starting this Thursday involving moving my sister into college, visiting family, and get this, staying at an eco vegan resort!!!! It's going to be crazy and awesome all at once!

But, without further delay, the things I am loving this week!

1. Summer break!

Yay! It's finally here! I get over a month off where I get to do things not related to school! Like travel, sleep, read, spend time with family and friends, and well...whatever I want! Hooray!

2. Seeing old friends

My summer break started out with a bang last week with me being able to catch up with some of my oldest friends who were in town! I also get to see more of my oldest friends tomorrow and Wednesday, something I am super pumped about!

3. New resource pages!

Almost as soon as my summer break started I had tons of new and exciting ideas for this blog! The first of which I have already put together.

I thought it would be helpful to include a couple resource pages, one on veganism, and one on handling corn allergies, to hopefully help provide others with information! I am especially happy to have put together my page on corn allergies, since there is such limited information available on this topic.

4. An excellent film

Last weekend I went and saw The Kings of Summer at the Crest Cinemas for only $3 and it was really good!

Morgan and I decided to go on a whim after only seeing the trailer and we were glad we did! It was a great summer coming of age film with both humor and drama and we are already wanting to see it again! It also included great shots of nature, which I thought were just stunning. If you are looking for a good summer film I would definitely recommend checking this out!

5.  A good detective novel...narrated by a dog

I started reading this book a little while ago but have been able to get more into it since I've been out of school. This story follows Bernie and his dog Chet as they run their private investigation business. What makes this story unique is that it is told from the perspective of Chet! This book has been interesting and humorous, and at times a bit dark, and is something I have been greatly enjoying.

I am also rather picky about fiction, so I am happy to find one that I like! I believe there is a series of these books, so I look forward to reading more!

Alright, with that I think it's time I spend the rest of my evening reading and get back to the story of Chet and Bernie!

Happy Monday!
