listening to:

The Orwells - This band has a bit of a Misfits meets Ramones vibe. I've been listening to this album while running or when I'm feeling ragey. It makes me feel better instantly.
The Apache Relay - I heard Katie Queen of Tennessee while listening to a station on spotify, and I was hooked. There isn't a song on the album that I don't love, but I'm really digging #7, Forest for the Trees.
Nikki Lane - She's a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll, and a whole lot bad ass. I'm so sad that I can't go see her play tomorrow here in Dallas. (school! ugh!)
Solange - I'm just gonna throw this out there: I like her better than Beyoncé. It's a really good album, and it gives me the feels.


watching:


Louie - Season 4 is on tv now, and I look forward to it every Monday. Usually when I get hooked on a show, I'll record it and watch it later so I don't have to deal with commercials, but I can never wait! (currently writing this during the commercials. ha!) This is going to sound a little dramatic, but Louis CK has gotten me through a really tough month. When I feel like crying I'll watch old episodes of Louie or his stand up, or I'll turn on his stuff on spotify, and I laugh until I feel better.
Orange is the New Black - I binge watched over the weekend. I'm crushing on Taylor Schilling right now. She's so damn pretty.


eating:
Today I spent the whole day cooking. I've been really busy, and to avoid eating every meal out I decided to make some stuff in advance. I made this quinoa bake, which I had for dinner, and it was SO good. I also made a brisket using this recipe. I've never made brisket before, but it turned out really tender and juicy. I'm excited to throw it in a cabbage salad. Also, I'm addicted to hummus deviled eggs lately, I made 1/2 dozen of them today as well.


loving:


Running. I've been taking advantage of the beautiful trails here in my city, and after about 2-3 weeks of forcing myself to go, I'm now addicted. I had the best run tonite. I ran further (farther? too lazy to give a fuck about grammar right now.) than I ever have before without stopping, and when I was done I wanted to cry. I was so happy and proud of myself.


wearing:
my summer uniform has been a pair of cut offs, and one of these tanks, and these shoes. One of these days I'll become a real blogger and do an outfit post. ha!


What are you listening to/watching/eating/loving/wearing lately?

Love love love the music choices. Nikki Lane is so damn fun to crank up and belt out. I actually just got The Orwells album a few days ago, along with The Parquet Courts - I guess was feeling a little punk that day. :-) Punk is definitely a good medicine for rage.

I love Louie, too. My husband likes his stand-up but doesn't enjoy the show, so I usually record it and I've been watching it the next day while folding laundry or eating my lunch. He is so...right. on. I don't have Netflix and feel like we're missing out with OITNB and House of Cards. Ah well.

And I've been running too! That is huge because I am so not a runner, but since I did that 5K last month I've gone twice a week. Just 2-3 miles, but still. I did 3 today and a hard HIIT workout yesterday - gonna be sore tomorrow, which is a beautiful thing. :-) I wish I had the gorgeous trails you have though!

I'm looking forward to catching up on some new music, and TV shows...I didn't realize how stressed and tired I'd been until school got out yesterday. I'm so ready to relax a little! I've also been feeling the urge to run lately, and my goal this summer is to get up early and run every morning. I gave myself a pass this morning though, since I hadn't slept past 6:30 since Christmas. : )

I have one episode left of Orange, and I'm holding off on watching it because I don't want it to end! Season three got the green light, though. Just tweeted you a link with images of all the characters from Orange as they appeared on Law and Order. You'd think it was a prerequisite!

Great list! Looking forward to checking some of that music out. I'm definitely in need of some new tunes! I love Louie and OITNB too, but we haven't watched the last seasons yet, so I have that to look forward to. We're catching up on GOT now.

I have been cooking some good stuff and hope to start posting some recipes on the blog again. We ate this frittata yesterday and it was nice and spring-y: http://www.threelittlehalves.com/2014/05/the-moment-of-perfection-jewels-of.html

And I'm wearing yoga pants pretty much nonstop for lack of summer garments!
