MM: Let Me Entertain You


William was in Dallas for a work conference last week, which meant I unwound with a rom-com, an indulgence I usually* spare him when we spend time together. My selection was seasonally inspired--Autumn in New York starring Winona Ryder and Richard Gere. 

Having just seen Winona's more recent work in Stranger Things, I was impressed by her talent in such different roles. It reminded me of watching Little Women when I was, well, little. At the time, I didn't realize what an all-star cast it had with the likes of Christian Bale, Kirsten Dunst (*more on her below) and Homeland's Claire Danes. This was one of the few movies I had on a heavy rotation. 

My point is, I think I overdoes on screen time and by the time I hit the teenage stage, I sat in front of a TV sparingly. Now, with a boyfriend and a full-time job, I've found my time in front of a TV screen to be a sweet escape. So, allow me to entertain you with what's entertaining me...

What I'm reading :: My book club met Wednesday night to discuss You'll Grow Out of It, a comedic memoir by Jessi Klein, who covers the gamut of girly guilty pleasures like Anthropologie and The Bachelor. Next up is The Thousandth Floor, authored by Katharine McGee (now Field!), my good friend's sister who got married this weekend. So, I'd read it regardless of the fact that it made the New York Times bestseller list. And even more noteworthy...theSkimm

TV I'm tuning into :: WD and I just finished HBO's The Night Of. We were wary of the ending as more than a few friends said it was unsatisfying. Turns out, I love it start to finish and highly recommend it.

Who I'm following :: This past weekend started our wedding storm which won't calm until mid-February. I'm excited to see how my friends and family style their festivities, taking mental notes and plenty of picture reconnaissance for my own. Like the floor-to-ceiling florals at #KatiesFieldDay and rosé fountain at former co-worker, Chanel's, fabulous French soirée. Follow @chaneldror or #jetaimetarlo to sneak a peek inside their chateau celebration for aaaall the amour feels. 

What I'm listening to :: I've had Tove Lo's Say It on repeat ever since it was the anthem of The Hamptons. Loving this too.

HBD, KT! And thanks for hosting us, JE!

Movies I'm watching :: The oldies -- crossed Casablanca off my list (inspired by this Insta), then fast-forwarded to Say Anything, an 80s coming-of-age flick. 

Have a great week. 

*Sweet boy offered to watch Wimbeldon with me on Friday when we returned. Having never seen it and eager for my fall tennis lessons (starting this Wednesday), I said "sure! press play." I was sorely disappointed to find it was a D- film despite the fact it came from the same makers of Bridget Jones's Diary and Notting Hill. Things starting looking up the rest of the weekend when we tuned into The Choice 2016 on PBS which divulges all the details on our two presidential candidates. And then Zootopia, worthy of the five-star rating its received on Netflix.

Fully entertained MB!

How I haven't seen Autumn in New York, I have no idea, it has my name written all over it. #romcomjunky! Say Anything you'll love even though we've already talked about that! You've Got Mail and Dan in Real Life are my go to fall feel goods!

Now that I've gotten caught by the reading bug, I have to dip into The Thousandth Floor! So intrigued by the author:)

My entertaining post coming soon!
