If you follow any blogs at all you’ll see that many of them are starting to post about the upcoming Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s going to get obnoxious until it finishes on August 5th so consider yourself warned 😉 They released a sneak peak catalogue of some of the things that will be included in the sale and I have seen a lot of people complaining that they didn’t like the picks this year. I’m not going to lie, I do like a lot of it. Many pieces are different from their normal cookie cutter styles they put out so it’s nice to see some colour, patterns, and bolder styles. I don’t have a Nordstrom card so I won’t be able to jump on the early access train on July 12th. I’ll have to wait until it opens to the general public on July 20th like 90% of the rest of you who are planning on making some purchases. It’s the perfect time to find some fall deals for yourself or do some of the kids back to school shopping to avoid the crowds later.

Weekly Reads (and maybe videos):

If you have ever read (and enjoyed) A Discovery of Witches you will be happy to hear that they have made a tv series. It also looks like they did a much better job of sticking to the book than some book to tv adaptations do……….ahem, I’m looking at you Sookie Stackhouse Series 😉

Tintin, Is That You? Botched Restoration of St. George Figure Causes Uproar. While this is a bad restoration, it’s not as bad as the bottom image. When I saw that bottom one a while back in a different article I both howled with laughter and cried with horror at the destruction.

31 Family Dinners to Eat Every Night in July. I say “family” loosely because there are a lot of things on here child #2 won’t eat, BUT I am totally game minus the fish. I hate fish. I wish I had someone to cook for me, I hate cooking. (I obviously hate a lot of things)
