++ I downloaded Elizabeth Smart's audiobook for my drive out here. It's about a 4.5 hour drive, and the book has kept me pretty dang interested the whole time. I'm about halfway through it and will finish when I drive home. I'm always so interested in learning about how people cope when they're held hostage. It's terrifying, inspiring, and fascinating all at once. I'll say this, people who survive that kind of stuff have a strength I'd never know.
++ I bought another Rimmel Provocalips because I'm that obsessed. This time I got I'll call you. I haven't had a chance to wear it yet because if I'm being honest, we haven't worn real clothes or put makeup on all week. I mean, what do your girls' weeks look like? #bums
++ The news this past week has been making me sick. This news story here is my cousin's friends' parents. As the results of the search were coming in, my heart just kept falling further into my stomach. There are sick, sick, SICK people in the world. (If you didn't click on the link, the news story is about the couple who were murdered after putting an ad on craigslist for a car. The couple was my cousin's friends' parents). Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. It's hard to accept that this world isn't all bad in these kinds of situations.
Sorry to end things on such a downer, but that's life, huh?
Now it's your turn, friends.
