Chris got to spend my snow day with me yesterday, and we had a great time. It was so fun to take our dog out to play in the dog park, catch up on TV, and cook together.

We only have two more weeks until Match Day! Waiting is getting harder and harder, but we are getting so close!
With all of the snow days lately, I have had some extra time to read. I just finished Inside the O’Briens (c/o NetGalley) from Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice and Love Anthony.
Inside the O'Briens was an intimate look into Joe O'Brien and his family as he struggles with the beginning stages on Huntington's disease. Joe, a Boston police officer who is always used to being in control, is forced to face a disease that forces him to lose all control. As he begins to lose control of his body and emotions, he deals with the fact that his children all have a 50 percent chance of getting Huntington's from him.
The story alternated between his point of view and that of his daughter, Katie, who is struggling with whether she should find out if she has inherited the gene for a disease that means certain death. Lisa Genova does an amazing job of weaving the facts of Huntington's disease in with the O'Briens' story. From the very beginning of the novel, I was drawn to Joe's voice and became invested in the family.
I received NYC Color Big Bold mascara and eyeliner from Influenster, and I’m excited to try it out. I don’t usually use drugstore mascara and eyeliner, so I am interested to see if this will work for me.

I painted my nails with Julep Irina, and I love the color and silk finish! Also, I just cut my nails super short, and I’ve had long nails for so long that I am having trouble typing with short nails. It’s pretty entertaining.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
