5 Things

Ok you all! My life has been so crazy busy. So I'm here to catch you up on some great things that have been going on.

1. I got to move my grandma's piano into my home. The 700 lb beauty was at my dad's house which he is currently trying to vacate. My brother and I got it loaded up (with the help of 4 men) and drove it 8 hours each way and delivered it to my house. Along with a whole lot of other stuff. I'm so excited to have such an important piece of family history in my home!

Here we are all loaded up! The piano is in the back of the truck!
The piano at our house!
2. When I got back from Ashton Justin, Veronica and I headed up to Wallace to go on a zip lining trip with one of Veronica's friends and a fellow Kappa sister; Scout, who is a tour guide there. It was so fun and such a thrill. We also got to go on a tour of a mine while we were there. I thought the best part was these fat little chipmunk like creatures that were hanging out all over the place! We want to go again as soon as possible!

Loved these little guys! 

Our precious little tour guide!

Also, apparently Wallace is the center of the universe...
I don't really get this which makes Justin laugh... But I guess it's still picture worthy! :) 

3. Two other Kappa sisters of mine have started up their own blogs! I am so excited to keep up with them! You can check out Laura here, and Natalie here!

4. I finished Dan Brown's Inferno a while ago and have not had the chance to blog about it. It is great. If you have read his other books you probably don't need much convincing. I love reading his books, I feel like you get little history lessons while reading. I like to keep my computer close by while reading so that I can look up all the pieces of art that they are referencing while reading.

Amazon's summary: In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.
Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.
Go read it. It's wonderful. So many twists and turns. And makes you think about the book even when you're not reading it.

I have also finished Divergent and Insurgent both by Veronica Roth. They were both quick reads and super good! Review's coming soon!

5.  My good friend Meredith and I, whose blog you can read here, have decided to start a little online blogger book club. It's still new so we're working out the kinks but we decided to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children as our first book... so look forward to new posts about book club! =)

Ok... phew! That was a lot! I promise I will try to blog on a more regular basis so that my posts aren't so long! Happy happy Friday you guys! Have a wonderful weekend!
