sunday social: favorite 3's

Social Sunday

1. 3 favorite songs right now

Get More: 

  • "Alone Together," Fall Out Boy - specifically, this performance with The Band Perry from CMT Crossroads.  Who knew punk rock and country could sound so good together?  Kimberly's innocent-sounding voice just takes the song's lyrics to another level for me.
  • "Somethin' Bad," Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood - my SIL and I are in love with this song.  Our poor family had to listen to us sing this one in the car a lot on vacation.
  • "The Devil Takes Care of His Own," Band of Skulls - this one reminds me of the White Stripes circa White Blood Cells.  Part of my writing playlist right now, gets played on our local indie station a lot, and is also in the background of at least one TV commercial!

2. 3 favorite movies that remind you of summer

  • Dirty Dancing - filmed right here in Southwest Virginia!
  • Now and Then - probably the reason we had so many seances growing up?
  • Moonrise Kingdom - summer camp gets the Wes Anderson treatment.

3. 3 favorite articles of clothing you own
  • My LOFT skinny jeans - I wear them pretty much every weekend.
  • White pointelle sweater from Old Navy - perfect summer layer!
  • YOGA PANTS, let's be honest here.

4. 3 items on your wish list
  • A nice camera bag - Mr. Q bought a nice backpack for our DSLR but I'd love to have one that looks like a purse for when I'm the photographer on duty ;)
  • Black strappy sandals I can wear to work - either these or these.
  • This Fossil watch - I only like watches if they look more like jewelry.

5. 3 books you would recommend to someone
  • The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank - not actually about hunting or fishing; instead it's a coming-of-age tale told in a series of short stories.  I would especially recommend it to fans of Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada.
  • Wild by Cheryl Strayed - I loved this moving true story of a woman's journey on the Pacific Coast Trail; read my full review here.
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - a haunting, heartbreaking genre-bending YA novel about a German girl whose foster family hides a Jewish man in their basement during World War II.
