Tuesday’s Tidings for Mar 7, 2017


1. I’m in the market for a new purse. I never buy purses anymore. I’ve had the same couple of Coach purses for several years now and they are great purses – I love them! You can’t beat the quality. But, I would really like a leather purse and I’ve been eyeing a few from Magnolia Market for over a year now. Give me your opinions. I’m leaning towards the crossbody because I feel like it’s a bit more practical for having kids, etc. But the tote bag is gorgeous. But my concern with that one is that the straps might get to heavy on my shoulder?? Choosing a new purse is hard… #firstworldproblems, I know.

2. Speaking of Magnolia Market, did you guys catch the bakery Fixer Upper episode a couple of weeks ago? Anyone else wanting to fly to the Silos asap for a cupcake? ME!

3. A couple of weekends ago, Josh and I went and saw The Great Wall! You guys, that is not only a visually beautiful film, but it is also super fun to watch. Does it take itself seriously? No. Is it going to win any awards? Probably not. But if you like to be entertained with some good acting (even if the plot/story is a little thin) and some amazing cinematography, then you’ll probably enjoy it. I liked it so much I would buy it. I liked it the same way I liked Edge of Tomorrow (also known as Live.Die. Repeat. And if you haven’t seen that yet, then you should!). 


1. At long last (and I mean long last), I finished God’s War. I don’t remember the last time it took me three months to finish a book (at least, when I wasn’t reading a bunch of books at the same time…). It’s a bit of a long (did I mention it was long?), dense read, but if you’re not familiar with The Crusades, and you don’t mind the endless parade of dates and names, it’s pretty fascinating. Finally on to volume one of Manchester’s The Last Lion series, Visions of Glory, and it is fantastic so far. I’d forgotten what a master Manchester was. And what a subject. Incredible read so far.

2. This is Filet-O-Fish season. I had no idea. Now I know. Now you know.

3. I tried to get through the version of King Arthur from a few years ago with Clive Owen. It was okay, but I got a little bored halfway through and never finished it – never a good sign. First Knight is a classic, of course. But this new Guy Ritchie take? I don’t know. This looks pretty amazing…
