*insert cliche comment about how freaking fast the month went*
October was a really great month for me and I have high expectations for November!
Your Man by Five For Fighting- I really love the new album by Five for Fighting and this is definitely one of my favorite tracks from the CD. I like that the score of this song is piano-heavy.
Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus - Ok, I really dislike Miley Cyrus and her attention-seeking antics. That said, I do really like this song. I just pretend she isn't the person singing it when I hear it so that I can continue to like it.
Well October was another strong reading month as I read 8 books. I also hit my goal of reading 52 books this year - way ahead of schedule! Once again, instead of recapping the books, I'll share the rating I gave them on goodreads.com. The best book I read this month was Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg.
Her Fearful Symmtry by Audrey Niffenegger - 3 stars
Life Sentences by Laura Lippman - 2 stars
Brava, Valentine by Adriana Trigiani - 3 stars
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown - 3 stars
The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom - 3 stars
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - 4 stars
Arranged by Catherine McKenzie - 3 stars
Lean in by Sheryl Sandberg - 5 stars
Yep, still not running. Still no plan for when I can return to running. I am still biking, though, and started taking spin classes at the end of the month, which I am loving! I really hope that my RA pain is completely under control by the end of November, but I keep saying this every month and it has not happened yet, so I probably should stop saying "maybe next month" because I just set myself up for disappointment. Anyways, while I am not running any miles, I did wrack up a lot of airline miles as I flew to Minneapolis, then to Chicago, then back to Charlotte and also did a day trip to Columbus.
I didn't wear any new outfits this month or anything I really loved, but I did buy a new coat! I know, I know. I don't really need more coats, but I could not resist. I tried this on while shopping at the end of September and could not stop thinking about it. And then Banana Republic sent me a 40% coupon which sealed the deal. I ordered it and it arrived while I was in Chicago. I adore it. I know I will wear it to Paris, on trips home, and occasionally when it gets cold enough in Charlotte!
