I need to confess that I just spent the last hour watching an episode of The A-Team with P. And, no, there isn’t a new version of The A-Team that you’re missing. This was straight up early 1980’s A-Team with Mr. T. I started watching it just to mock it and then I actually got caught up in the plot line and totally fascinated by the fact that P remembered the entire story line, including Howling Mad Dog Murdoch yelling, “I NEED SOME TRASH BAGS! I NEED SOME TRASH BAGS!” Meanwhile, I can’t remember what I had for lunch today.
But I did think of a few thing I wanted to share with you that have made my week and/or month a little better.
1. What I’ve watched over and over again this week
Snoop Dogg narrating 'Planet Earth' is what this world needs.

I saw this on Facebook and can’t quit watching. We now quote this at our house and it’s one of my favorite things ever. I only wish Snoop Dog could narrate my entire day.
2. Best mascara I’ve tried in the last month
Several people recommended this so I picked some up at HEB a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that I’m a fan. The brush is really unique and gives coverage without clumps. I don’t know that I’ll ever pledge my allegiance to just one mascara, but this one is pretty good and the price is right.
3. Song I can’t quit listening to
This isn’t a new song, but I’ve fallen in love with it all over again this past week.
4. Book I’m reading right now
So many people have told me I need to read Mary Karr’s books and then I forget about it until the next time someone mentions her. I finally picked up The Liars Club this past weekend and am enjoying it so far.
I also want to read The Art of Memoir by Mary Karr because I always find inspiration reading how great writers find their words and put them on paper.
5. App I’m a little obsessed with
Gulley calls me every morning about 8:20 and we talk while she drives to work. Last week she mentioned she’d discovered a puzzle app and had spent the evening before doing various puzzles on her iPad. I decided that sounded appealing because sometimes I just need something a little bit mindless to shut my brain off and now I’m hooked.
So, really, between puzzles and Snoop Dog narrating nature videos, life is practically complete.
