Today, I'm linking up with Julie at Back to the Basics for her Five for Friday link party.
So here are the five things I'm loving...
1. Nesting dolls
I have always loved nesting dolls, but it seems now they are popping up everywhere. My best friend got me those nesting doll measuring cups for Christmas. Aren't they great?
I have only one real nesting doll of my own. I found her at a flea market and she has no babies, just a lonely matrioshka. I'm pretty fond of her.
And how about those YGG nesting dolls! They sold out in ONE day. But not before my mom snatched up a set for Jude.
2. Amazon Student
Amazon came to my rescue this week in a big way. The books I ordered from the school's book store were put on backorder (last minute, so thanks for that). I was able to get the text books I needed in time using Amazon Students FREE 2 day shipping. Hallelujah Amazon!
3. my new iPad
Jeremy surprised me Wednesday with a brand spanking new iPad. It's mainly a going-back-to-school present, but I'm still clueless as to what else I should be using it for. If you have any good blog/design/writing/music apps to suggest, I'm all ears!
4. Les Miserables
I saw this movie last weekend and I have had the music in my head for 6 days straight. No joke. I bought the soundtrack because I just needed to hear it, hoping it would get it out of my head. I actually thought I could just listen to Anne Hathaway sing "I Dreamed a Dream" at my leisure. Ha. Cue the snot and tears as I'm driving. Still, I can't stop listening to it.
If you haven't seen this movie yet, you need to. Everyone did such a remarkable job in this musical.
