I have a very addictive personality.

Not meaning that I’m addicted to bad things. [Except ice cream.] Nor am I saying that you should be addicted to my personality. I mean that when I find something I like, I’m addicted.

I’m hooked.

I. Can’t. Quit. It.

So I thought that for your Labor Day weekend, I would list for you some things that currently have the attention of my addiction.

Read It:

Daisy Chain by Mary DeMuth = I just finished this book. I’m blogging about it next week. With a giveaway. I cried while reading for the last four days. Lord. Have. Mercy. Good. Book.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel = Two of my friends told me I HAD to read this book. I said, “A tiger? And a boy? In a boat? No thanks.” Then I couldn’t put it down the entire time I was in Chicago.

Real Simple Magazine = During these trying economic times, most of my magazine subscriptions have died off. Save this one. Every single month, they are giving me tons of tips and ideas to help save money. As well as giving me permission to wear bright orange fingernail polish thank you very much.

North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson = This is my beach read for the weekend. I adore his writing- it is hilarious and creative and different than anything I’ve ever read. I love books that let me escape. This one does.

Hear It:

City Of Black & White by Mat Kearney = My friends are so.very.tired. of hearing me talk about this record. It is definitely my favorite of 2009. No question.

A Sucker’s Dream by The Alternate Routes = I just love this album. It’s hard to remember what my life was like before The Alternate Routes. [Dramatic flair moment in today’s post? Done.] And though their new album is awesome too, I’m really partial to this one.

Need You Now by Lady Antebellum = Y’all. This song.

Albertine by Brooke Fraser = I’m not musically savvy. I don’t say the “cool thing” about music. But I will say this- this record feels like autumn to me.

Watch It:

The Bravo Network. Duh.

__________

So. There’s you a little list to keep you entertained for a few days. Coming next week…. a book giveaway, a Kitchenaid mixer, and a few laughs. And possibly something embarrassing. I can’t imagine going to the beach for a weekend and not do something dumb that you will love hearing about.

Have a great weekend. 🙂
