What I'm Into - June 2016

What I’m Into – June 2016

This is the What I’m Into link up at Leigh Kramer’s blog. Be sure to stop by and check out all the other blogs in the link up.


Zoo by James Patterson – I loved the TV show, but I just can’t get into the book. It seriously put a damper on my reading as I struggled through it all month.

End of Watch by Stephen King – Now this book brought me out of my slump! It’s so good and so creepy! I can’t put it down!


I was sick with a sinus infection for almost two weeks, which sucked, but it meant I got a lot of Netflix in. I watched season one of Slasher, and season two, but I thought it was season one, of Extant. Admittedly, I napped through some of these episodes, but for the most part I found the shows entertaining. I’ve also started rewatching Charmed.

Cap and I watched An Idiot Abroad. Karl Pilkington is hilarious! We also watched Salvage Dawgs, which is really interesting. I love seeing what they make out of old things. Hopefully Netflix will have more seasons soon.


Peter Pan is one of my favorite fairy tales, so of course I love these songs!

Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy Darling,
Even Captain Hook.
You are my perfect story book
Neverland, I love you so,
You are now my home sweet home
Forever a lost boy at last
– Ruth B, Lost Boys

You’re always gonna fly away, just because you know you can
You’re never gonna learn there’s no such place as Neverland
You don’t understand
You’ll never grow up
You’re never gonna be a man
Peter Pan
– Kelsea Ballerini, Peter Pan


My Nephew! Little Owen is finally here! I’m so excited to be an Aunt! My sister and brother-in-law are doing great, and seem like parenting pros already. And little Owen is almost a month old and growing so fast!

And my new car! I’ve been driving the same car for 15 years, so it was time for a new one. I have a post planned about the car shopping process, so be on the lookout for that.

Cap and I spent the day at The Lost Sea Adventure! It was so much fun! The caves were beautiful, and the lake ride was interesting. I didn’t get a good picture of the lake, but it was so cool! I felt like I was in the cave scene in Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince!

  1. Nice car! And yay for becoming an aunt! 🙂 Hehe, I am loving Netflix. Just finished watching Wallander which I quite enjoyed. I haven’t yet watched Orange is the new black but might look at that next. Also just noticed the entire series of Gilmore Girls is on Netflix.
