Friday Five: Some Updates

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday

This has been a week, hasn’t it?

I thought it was about time to write down some updates on my #the100daysproject(s). Because I cannot do anything simply. Well, at least when I start.


Attacking my To Be Read (tbr) pile for the beginning of the summer seemed like a GREAT idea at the time.

Here’s a little reminder of my goals:


Piece of cake, right?


The only book I have completely read from the list is NOT EVEN IN THE PHOTO.


So, yes. I read Caraval and LOVED it. I’ll be publishing my book review on this soon. Don’t want to rush into anything. {facepalm x2}

In my own defense, I have reread a couple of books in this time period, because why read the ones you don’t know how they are going to end or make you feel? [Of note: Caraval made me cry. That stupid/amazing book!]

Here are the five books that I am in the middle of reading (or have at least opened):

Chasing Slow

Chasing Slow by Erin Loechner

The Husband Project

The Husband Project by Kathi Lipp

Wired for Story

Wired for Story by Lisa Cron

The Best Yes

The Best Yes by Lisa Terkeurst

Zookeepers Wife

The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman



I also had to create a second 100 days’ project, because, of course I did.

So I purchased these writing worksheets from Ensign Insights and I LOVE them! I found Sarah through instagram and her feed is so fun to watch. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Specifically, I purchased her Large Brush Pens Bundle, because I already had a Tombow Dual Brush Pen set.


This is a pile of days 1 – 62

I HAVE been actively practicing and I have learned that “bouncy letters” do not come naturally to me. I can make it work, but my brain and my hand want things to be in an orderly line… or something like that.

I have also created a lettering piece of my own. NOT my own words, but I wrote it down.

I am meant to be a Lion


So, there are a few updates of things I’ve been working on.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Weekend
