Here are a few of my favorite things from this month.
Favorite new TV show: Cristela
I had heard of this show, and I knew it depicted a Latino family. Still, I resisted it for some reason. HUGE MISTAKE! Cristela (also the name of the primary actress) is hilarious. She's a Latina comedian, and now I want to know everything about her. You can learn some about her on her website.
Favorite attempt to get more sleep: Talking Alarm Clock and Nightlight
This little clock lets us set a time for it to turn green. It's our futile attempt to keep Ella from wandering into our room at 6:20 on Sunday mornings. Sometimes it works.
But there's also mornings she comes out saying, "It was taking toooooo long." I think if we'd started it younger, it'd be a bit more effective. But it has super helped the rest time "coming-out-of-the-room-every-three-minutes" since I can show her when rest time ends.
Still my favorite attempt.
Billy and I were in Mexico for a bit this month. I didn't really have a favorite sunrise. They were all so beautiful. But here's a favorite pic.
Favorite book: Crazy Rich Asians
When I was studying sociology, one professor discussed the fact that so much research is conducted on poverty because it is impossible for researchers to have access to the ultra rich. This novel was so fascinating in its insider view of a world I know not at all. I've only got a few chapters left. Super fun read!
Favorite blast from the past:
My mom brought me this shirt she had saved since my high school days. It goes without saying that I was obviously a cool kid in high school. Once I arrived at college, however, my two girlfriends screamed and sent me back to my dorm when I appeared wearing this gem.
(Catch me on Instagram for more incredible photography like what you see here.)
