Sunday Salon : December Edition

Posted 6 December, 2015 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in blogging


Time // 3:37 EST

Working // On Christmasing the house for The Girl. Personally, Christmas is one of my least favorite holidays, but you know… it’s for the kids, etc. Yesterday we put of the tree and today I put up the sixteen foot Darth Vader in the yard. It. Is. Fabulous. See: Instagram. Child for scale.

Reading //  Like a fiend! Fates and Furies really was a slump buster, and currently I’m four books behind in my Goodreads challenge, but I’m busting my hump to get to my goal of 105 before the year ends.

Attending // The local Bar Association’s Christmas party next Friday. Networking… it’s the best worst. But I have a pretty green dress to wear, so there’s that.

Thinking // …of lots of things, but my desire to get back to the books seems to have driven what I was going to say out of my mind.

Looking Forward // The hubs 50th birthday is at the end of the month so I’ve planned a trip to New York City to celebrate. We have some tickets to Hamilton, which I’m super psyched about and we’ll be there for New Year’s Eve, with a hotel that overlooks Time’s Square. So we can check that off the bucket list. Note: We have no intention of going IN TO Time’s Square on NYE, just to overlook it from the roof of our hotel which is offering an open bar from 9 pm – 2 am.

What plans do you have for the holidays, Reader?

Sunday Salon: Hamilton Edition

Posted 22 November, 2015 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in blogging, memes


Listening // to Hamilton. I’m practically totally obsessed with this musical. Shannon at River City Reader and I even started a quirky Tumblr about it. Elect Hamilton. It’s a crazy mashup between the Hamilton musical and the 2016 American Presidential elections. Apparently the Hamilton musical and Harry Potter mashed up is a thing too, Tumblr’s a weird place.

Finished up // with a game night with co-worker friends. We started tame with a game of ‘Encore’ which is a board game circa 1987 that involves music. Ended, naturally, with a completely magically horrific game of Cards Against Humanity. Goooood times.

Game Night!

Game Night Selfie!

Reading // Getting over my reading slump. Knocked out about four books in the past week, I also feel as if I might be getting some blogging mojo back, but I don’t want to say that too loud for fear of jinxing myself. I’m still six books behind on my Goodreads goal, but I’m hoping I can knock some out during all of my downtime. (I have no downtime.)

Cannot be trusted with // Star Wars merchandise. Seriously, this news that Disney plans on putting out one Star Wars movie a year until people stop buying tickets could be terrible news for my checkbook. I totally have a thing for Darth Vader. Nothing you can say will stop me.

So it’s been a pretty good week. How was yours, Reader?
