Happy Friday and happy Valentine's Day!
I had this whole Valentine's post planned for Wednesday and then... the week got away from me and I ended up not finishing it. :( I was pretty excited about it though, so I think I'll finish writing it over the weekend and post it next week.
This week has been a bit of a rough one. My anxiety's felt a little out of control lately and this week has just felt like one thing after another. It's been tough, but I am glad I still had the energy to get my classwork done for the week. I even got some editing done on Cursed and Golden Touch too.
I started Chosen by Kirsten White this week! I'm only on like chapter two, but I'm loving it so far! I love the protagonist, Nina. Most other slayers are tough and strong, independent female protagonists. And if they aren't before they become a slayer, they become one pretty quickly. They give into their slayer instincts. I love that Nina started out a healer, a girl who doesn't mind being the backup, the person in the background. I love even more that she decides to fight her slayer instincts and stay her compassionate, kind and healing self. It's interesting to watch her inner struggle between who she wants to be and who her slayer instincts want her to be.
This week I also got a par of new boots! That was probably the highlight of my week so far haha! I found these super cute boots on sale at Shoe Carnival. They are my new favorite shoes that I own haha!
It got super cold where I'm at. Wednesday night it snowed and snowed and snowed! It wasn't great snow though... it's kind of wet and a little slushy. Or at least it was. Last night the temperature dropped to like 1 degrees so everything outside froze. The high of today is supposed to be like 5 degrees.
Also! For Valentine's week, Wayward is on sale! You can get it today for 1.99!
I finished my first prayer journal of 2020 this week too! That one lasted from December 26, 2019 till this week, which is pretty quick. I've been using it a lot lately though, so it filled up pretty quickly.
Yesterday I went to the dentist and that was no fun. Turns out I've got a lot going on with my teeth haha
And today is Valentine's Day! I'm babysitting again today so I'm going to bring over some fun craft stuff and we're going to make Valentine cards so that'l be fun!
Tomorrow is one of my little brothers' birthdays. He's turning thirteen! 😱 I can't believe it! They grow up so fast haha
Oh! And how could I forget? To All the Boys I loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You (dang that's a long title haha) came out on Wednesday!! 😍 No spoilers, but it was fantastic. Literally the first movie and now this one too are some of the best teen romance movies I've ever seen. It lived up to every expectation and did the first one justice in every way. If you're looking for an adorable, romantic and sweet movie to watch for your Valentine's Day, I highly recommend To All the Boys and To All the Boys #2!
So, yeah... that was more or less my week. There's been lots of downs and not a lot of ups this week, but I'm feeling pretty good today and I'm just trying to keep a positive attitude about next week.
I hope you have a great Valentine's Day! (Also, if you're looking for some encouraging words on this Valentine's Day Hannah Brencher wrote some beautiful words this week. I love everything she writes and this post was so good and so unique from all the other posts for single people that inevitably comes out on the week of Valentine's.)
How has your week been? Are you doing anything for Valentine's Day today?
