Three Things (I’m OBSESSED with this week)

I was going to sit down and write a different blog post tonight, but I had to stop the regular programming to tell you about three things I’m REALLY into this week.

Three Favorite Things

  1. Come As You Are” (The Surprising New Science that Will Transform Your Sex Life)

    Ohhhhh this book. Read it. Immediately. I came across it while Tim and I were on a Saturday morning date a few days ago. After a delicious brunch we wandered into a nearby bookstore and this book was on display. Immediately I recognized the title as a book that had been recommended by friends, as well as a speaker who spoke at our local Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group. I now know why it was recommended to me so many times! I really can’t necessarily explain what this book is about, but I will say that I’m only halfway through it and have been talking about it nonstop with Tim (and with anyone else who will listen). I’m learning way more about sex than I thought I would, that’s for sure. And I find it super interesting. Just go and read the reviews on Amazon and I think you’ll be convinced you need to buy this book. I promise, even if your sex life is already mind-blowing, you’ll still get something out of this book.

  2. How I Built This

    I also recently discovered this (NPR) podcast. How did I not know about it before?! OK, I guess I did know about it before, because it’s been talked about by other bloggers and friends of mine, but I kind of dismissed the recommendations because I didn’t think it sounded interesting to listen to a bunch of entrepreneurs. Well, I was wrong. This podcast is really easy to listen to, it’s fascinating, and I’m always inspired by the stories! Plus, I love knowing how some of my favorite brands started out. This podcast has a lot of episodes, so I have hours upon hours of listening to do to catch up!

  3. March Madness

    Please tell me you’re watching March Madness this year, because it’s been actual madness. I watched so much basketball over the past few days, and I still managed to miss some amazing games. In case you missed it, for the first time ever a 16 seed managed to upset a number 1 seed… and not just any number 1 seed, the number one ranked team in the entire tournament/country! I can’t even remember all of the incredible moments and upsets that have happened, and we’re only at the Sweet 16… I’m already excited for the ‘One Shining Moment’ compilation – they’re going to need to play that song on a loop for some extra minutes to fit all of the awesomeness in there!

And that’s it from me!

What are you into this week?!

  1. Okay someone just mentioned that book to me yesterday, it seems so interesting!

  2. When I married my husband he wasn’t into sport. Then I introduced him to NASCAR. Then we ended up at a Cavs game with friends and now he’s really into them. THEN he started watching the Indians in the spring/summer. I’m just PRAYING that he doesn’t get hooked on another sport/division. Hahaha. No March Madness in our house!
    I feel like I definitely need to look into this book after that rave review.

    • Lisa says:

      Definitely look into the book! Tim’s not into sports either. Sigh. I mean he’ll watch them live, but he doesn’t follow teams the way I do! (Or the way I used to, before I had kids and my brain had more free space!)

  3. I haven’t been watching March Madness in the sense that I’ve actually watched any of the games, but I have most definitely been following along and have been anxiously awaiting Thursday when I’ll have the chance to brag about my bracket in a blog post 😛 Hahaha. My top performing bracket (of the five I made) is currently in the 88.8th percentile on ESPN! It was in the 97th percentile at one point on Sunday, but I didn’t fare so well after the UNC and Cincinnati losses. I’m 30 points behind my dad in our family pool, but four of the five of us have the same number of potential points per round for the next round at the moment (1080), so we’ll see what happens. (My sister, having called Michigan State to win it all, only has 200 PPR available. Ouch.) I can’t believe that Loyola is still in it! I really thought they only got in on a technicality (winning their conference), but no matter what happens at their next game, it seems like they really are the real deal, making it all the way to the Sweet Sixteen!

  4. okay you’re the third person that has recommended “come as you are” so i need to read it. i’m gonna order through what i hope is an affiliate link to amazon from your site so you can get $0.17 😉
