What I'm Loving Right Now

M&Ms Sweet and Salty Snack Mix
I mean, milk chocolate m&ms with pretzels and peanuts and tiny chocolate chip cookies? What more could you want- DARK chocolate m&ms with pretzels and almonds and raisins? THEY HAVE THAT ONE TOO. All varieties are amazing, and have been the unofficial sponsors of all recent girly hangout nights. 
"Newsies" on Broadway
I will admit that it took me a while to warm to the show, because there's a GIRL REPORTER, WHAT?! And also: they CHANGED SOME LYRICS?????????? However, once I ordered my junior high self to just GET OVER IT ALREADY, I was surprised at how fast I fell in love with the whole musical. And if you've seen my recent activity on Spotify, you know I've been SLIGHTLY addicted to the soundtrack. This song in particular:
Click play and listen to it while you read the rest of this. And don't miss the section starting at 3:08, MY FAVORITE PART!!!

"The Avengers" 
Last night I saw "The Avengers" for the third time. Aaaaaand tt was just as awesome as it was the first time, CLEARLY. We haven't stopped quoting it or picking favorite characters or referencing the Hulk punch since. Emily did a much better job recapping why this movie is so amazing, so go forth and read!

Pool Time
Remember last summer how all my Saturdays were taken up by copious pool time? Yeah. IT HAS BEGUN.

Kristen Wiig's SNL Farewell Sketch
I know a lot of people don't even watch Saturday Night Live anymore (WHAT IN THE WORLD, Y'ALL), but if you missed this past Saturday night's episode, you missed out on a jewel. The amazing/hilarious/irreplaceable Kristen Wiig is leaving SNL after seven years, and the cast gave her a fantastic sendoff that okay MAYBE I cried during.


Boom. Shaka Laka.
Said just like that! Boom. Shaka laka. It's our new catchphrase, created by the one and only Lori Redfearn, and it has many, many uses. I'm sure you will agree. Look into starting to use this, and possibly making it your own.

Boom shaka laka, y'all.

well said! i'm loving these things, too- as well as the copius amounts of girly time we've had here lately. though we have yet to compare all 3 m&ms snack mixes at one time; this must be remedied.
