curious about my baggage?

We are headed to Texas next week and I'm getting uber excited. A car trip with my two favorite boys and topped off with a tween room makeover...excitement overload, I almost can't contain it! So for those of you who may be curious like I often am (ya, I admit I am totally the girl who will snoop around in your house if I'm house sitting haha-so beware) this is what I want to take with me. It's my dream bag packed. Wanna peek?

Now I am just in need of a really great read....any book suggestions?! Please help a gal out, I wanna know what you're reading and copy you lovelies.

I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday.


  1. Sooo many books to read right now! I've been reading "Child 44" by Tom Rob Smith. It's based on true events of a serial killer in Russia. The actual events took place in the 80s but the book is set right after WWII. It's a very interesting look into Communism.

  2. I am in the mood for a road trip...maybe not so far as Texas but a nice drive sounds good!
    The Financial Lives of the Poets by Jess Walter
    This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper
    both such good books about relationships and families
    If You Were Here by Jen Lancaster
    for a light funny home improvement is gonna to be the death of us read

  3. Hi Courtney! Two amazing books I just read that I seriously could not put down:
    Before I Go to Sleep, by S.J. Watson
    Await Your Reply, by Dan Choan

    Beware of being up all night reading! Have a fantastic trip!

    BTW, you had sent me a brass vase back when you were selling items from your home -- I'm long overdue in thanking you and telling you how much I love it! It makes me so happy to have a Courtney item in my home! :)

  4. Also I meant to add that the previous recommendation of "This is Where I Leave You" is great too! LOVED that book and never laughed so hard. Enjoy!

  5. Did you read The HELP yet? It was a fabulous book! The Hunger Games are also good for a road trip. I am reading The Wind UP Bird by Haruki Murakami and so far it is awesome! Lots of quirky characters and a crazy story line!
    Happy road trip!

  6. Heft by Liz Moore - it's about people who lose themselves and then find each other(but it's not a romance)

    State of Wonder by Ann Patchett - seriously good book that's really beyond my summarizing skills.

  7. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp....a must! Challenged my thinking on so many levels!

  8. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp....a must! Challenged my thinking on so many levels!

  9. Greetings from Texas! :) I just love your outfit picks!! As per the book request, if you haven't read "Eat, Pray, Love" I definitely recommend it.

  10. The swimsuit is adorable, and love the casual date outfit!
    If you haven't read the Hunger Games books yet, do it! They are great and such an easy read.
    One book I think you'd love is,
    "Such a Pretty Face," by Cathy Lamb. I just re-read it and it was even better the 2nd time. Check it out here on Amazon

    Have a great trip!

  11. I hope you have a great trip!

    If you haven't read The Help by Kathryn Stockett, I highly recommend it. I also really loved 11/22/63 by Stephen King. It's NOT scary Stephen King, but it IS perfectly enthralling. It's a big book, but I'm sure you'll blow right through it on a long road trip! <3

  12. Three words: The Hunger Games! Seriously an addicting series and a very easy read!


I love to hear your thoughts lovelies! Comment away!
