Music, Books, Miles, and Looks of November

Music:







Your Love by The Outfield: I am going old school on you this month. The Barrister and I went and saw one of his favorite local performers earlier this month and he did a little 80s montage which reminded me how much I love this song. My co-workers also love it, so when one of us is in a bad mood, we'll play this song!

Books:

This was a much better reading month for me!

Beneath a Marble Sky by John Shors - This was my local book club selection. It's a work of historical fiction based upon the building of the Taj Mahal - definitely a great read!

Wishin' and Hopin' by Wally Lamb - You can read my review here.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro - This was an interesting read that is outside of my typical genre. It was a bit dark, but was pretty engaging so I am glad I checked it out.

Everything I Never Wanted to Be by Dina Kucera - I'll be reviewing this book next week, so stay tuned!


Miles:
I honestly have no idea how many miles I ran in November but I can tell you, it wasn't many! I have been doing more biking lately as my knee has been a little bit wonky. Hopefully I can post a more respectable number in December!



Looks:




I adore this dress, but not the price tag... so I will admire it from afar. For the first time in years, I actually have a holiday party to attend so I was looking for a fun holiday dress that will not break the bank! That Anthro dress was not in the budget but luckily I found something I like even more, at a fraction of the cost! So this dress is on it's way to me! I hope it fits!

OMG, Anthro dress is gorg, but of course so spendy. I hate that. If only they could come down about $75 each... The dress you picked will be super cute though. Love that song. I am writing it down so I can download it tonight. I always forget about some of the oldies but goodies. Your reading always impresses me.

Love the dresses from Shabby Apple! It's a very cute dress you ordered. I also love the Anthro dress but yes, its so over priced.

The sound on my computer doesn't work... so I'll sing it myself...

JOSIE'S ON A VACATION FAR AWAY, COME AROUND AND TALK IT OVER! SO MANY THINGS THAT I WANNA SAY, YOU KNOW I LIKE MY GIRLS A LITTLE BIT OLDER!
