Since getting involved with the book club through my local Air Force spouses group, I’ve read so many books that I might not have picked up on my own, and I love that.
Of course, since I’m one of the leaders of the book club, I do have some say in which books were a part of the poll, but our members voted on the top picks, and we ended up with a few that I wasn’t so sure about.
One of these books in particular was What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.
This was our November book club pick. I have to admit that I thought this would be another silly chick-lit book that I’d end up getting bored with halfway through & have pretentious feelings about. But, as it turns out, I was wrong.

I finally feel like I’ve settled into this house, and a good part of that was organizing my craft supplies. Through the moves and the college dorm-living, they’ve been constricted to plastic bins & have been jostled and thrown all around, and have been sitting in a closet ever since we got to this house. We have a teeny tiny second bedroom here that we’ve turned into an office, and I bought a simple desk from the Container Store and some organizational drawers on sale from Michael’s for my side of the room. It’s been a stupidly long process, but last week I actually put everything in its proper place, and did a fair bit of combing through the supplies and tossed/donated things I know I won’t be using.
I’m one of those people who can deal with a messy space, but for my creativity and happiness to be flowing, I need a good organizing marathon every now and then.

I have a slight obsession with YouTube. I have a set few YouTubers who, upon seeing they’ve uploaded videos, make me want to drop everything I’m doing to press play and watch. Some are comedians, like Grace Helbig, some are part-time vloggers, like Zoella, some are beauty gurus, like itsjudytime, and some are just plain amazeballs human beings, like Mamrie Hart.
Mamrie Hart is, honest to goodness, one of the funniest people I have ever watched. She has two channels, You Deserve a Drink and mametown, and was the host of the online travel web series HeyUSA for two seasons. All of these things make me literally laugh out loud and sometimes even snort. And now, she has written a book! Just like her original YouTube channel, it’s called You Deserve a Drink: Boozy Misadventures and Tales of Debauchery. I love memoir-type books, especially ones with some humor, and let me tell ya, this one is BANGIN. Okay, I just finished reading it today, so her writing style may have rubbed off on me… And if I was Mamrie, I know I’d have a terrible pun to go along with that last sentence!! But alas, I am not, so if you want the funnies, you will have to go buy her book. Continue reading “READ THIS NOW – You Deserve a Drink by Mamrie Hart”
