Orange Blossoms. Oh my goodness. This is my all time, number one, nothing-even-comes-close, favorite fragrance in this world. We have come to the time of year down here in Florida where I go everywhere with my windows down just to catch a whiff of this heavenly scent. It's like my own personal Christmas in March. If someone--ANYONE--could effectively bottle this up, I would keep them in business for the rest of my life. I would buy the candle, the lotion, the cleaning products, the car freshener: you name it, I'd buy it. It is divine. I genuinely feel sorry for you if you are allergic or have never experienced the blessing that is Orange Blossoms.
Speaking of paradise, have I mentioned lately that I live there? It's true, y'all. I apologize to anyone who might be reading this right now living up to your neck in snow, but this is me mowing our backyard last week. Fun fact: up until a few months ago, I had never mowed a yard in my life. My brothers still don't believe that I have. (Oakie, Reagan, here is photographic evidence that I am now a proud lawn-mowing machine.) My verdict on mowing? I like it. As long as it's sunny and warm, I will volunteer to mow the yard. If we had a push-mower, I might feel very differently.
Movie Review Time!
I recently watched Cast Away all the way through for the very first time in my life. My thoughts at the end: Ain't nobody got time for a blonde who says, "I always knew you were alive" but went and married your dentist. You go get you a redhead, Tom.
I also finally caved and agreed to watch the first few Harry Potter movies with my hubby. He likes them, and it's my goal in life to be an awesome wife. I have resisted watching them and have no desire to read the books. My thoughts after seeing the first three: meh.
Cody and I also watched a movie recently called The Double starring Richard Gere and Topher Grace of all people. Has anyone heard of this?? We hadn't, but we saw it in RedBox and, after looking up some reviews to check the content, decided to watch it. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The plot was compelling, the acting was good, and it was pretty clean. There were some violent scenes and probably some language, but overall I thought it was very good. There is a plot twist at the end that I never saw coming, so major kudos for that.
I've been jamming to Train this week.
Not any particular album or song.
I love me some Train.
Speaking of music, can I just talk about The Voice for a second? So, I've never watched an entire season from start to finish. I love the concept of this show. But I pick my winner and once they're gone, I'm gone. For instance, my season 7 pick was Taylor John Williams. He came so close, y'all. Taylor? Please make me a record. And the only other season I really followed was season 3 and my pick was Melanie Martinez. She didn't win. I just started watching the current season and Hello, Sawyer Fredericks! What?! This kid is just too adorable for words. #following
Well, this is probably about enough for this post, and to wrap it all up, check out this church sign I drove by this week. Cody and I laughed too much.
I mean, come on.
Get outta here, Devil.
What is your all-time favorite scent? Have you seen any good movies lately? Are you a fan of Train? The Voice? Who are you #following season 8?
