Monday Must

Must Share

Some how, some way, my little sissy has gone from my favorite tiny ginger, to a towering, almost-college graduate, who in a blink of an eye, has just turned 21. So what does one do to celebrate such a monumental birthday? Road trip it to track down our favorite childhood drink, naturally. Nothing screams legal drinking age like a blue tongue. :) You can check out the surprise my hubby and I set up for her at our beach condo here. Slurpees are buy one, get one free until 9/20, y'all.

Must Watch

After hearing so-so reviews about "Age of Adaline," I opted out of seeing the film while in theaters and decided to wait until it hit Redbox. On Saturday night, my hubby and I snuggled up in the living room and popped it in. From the first five minutes, I was completely engrossed. The music, the cinematography, the SCENERY!  The high-concept romance plays out like a better version of a Nicolas Sparks novel, with a touch of fantasy and enough swoon-worthy outfits to capture any girl’s heart.  I so wish this had been a novel first. There's just so many tiny beautiful details that I would have loved to have seen expanded on. A truly beautiful and touching story. As for Blake, girl totally kills it, delivering what will easily be remembered as one of her best performances.

Must Listen

You guys, I have been playing JoJo's new song "Say Love" on REPEAT and I can not get enough. After years of one horror story after another with her old record label, which left her unable to basically do anything in the music world for the last ten years, JoJo has returned with a vengeance. I had no idea this girl could SANG! This song is everything.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
