We rearranged our living room to separate it from the dining room but we did it in a way that there’s more room in the dining area and even though we covered a window with our TV, the room is a lot brighter now than it was before. I’m not quite sure why that is but it is and it’s weird…but still, I really love the set up now and while putting our living room together, we made plans for our now bare wall where the TV used to be and I can’t wait to start crafting up a storm to fill that wall up. But here’s what our new set up looks like and I’m one happy camper. Our TV looks so much bigger where it is now and I love it.
I finally put up the Samoan prints that we got a few months ago and I’m really happy with the culture that it brings to our living space. We still have a few island pieces that we need to get frames and shadow boxes for but we plan on getting that done in the next week or so. I’ll update you with more pictures once we finish that up. We’re also searching for two chairs to put up against our picture wall (the bare white wall on the right, above the barrel) so I’ll busy myself with that search because I’m eager to finish off the living room before I start working on my personal library (*squee* My inner book nerd is beyond excited for that). I’ve been looking for white bookshelves for months to match my office desk but I guess everyone else wanted white bookshelves too because everywhere I looked, they were sold out. So I finally changed my mind and bought some other bookshelves and will be putting that together in the next few weeks and then I’ll start gathering print books again. Yippy skippy!
I’ll keep everyone posted on my progress throughout the house but that’s all for now.
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…
What I Watched
Demon Slayer | 4.25 out of 5
The King (2017) | 3.25 out of 5
Cold Eyes (2013) | 4.25 out of 5
I watched two movies this weekend and one I really liked, while the other one I was pissed off throughout most of the movie and liked the ending. Cold Eyes was a Jimin recommendation and I really liked it. I’m really into crime thrillers and this was a smart one that had me cheering on the good guys from the jump. I really like Han Hyo Joo so it was nice to see her in action again in Cold Eyes. I ended up liking The King but I spent a good deal of the movie pissed off at the main guy and even in the end, I was still mad at him but was glad that he stepped up. It was funny and totally unplanned but the villain both movies was the same guy. LOL.
What I Read
The Switch by Beth O’Leary | 4 out of 5
I had my monthly meeting with my book friends this weekend so I read this book because it was the book we chose to read together as a group. I hadn’t finished the book before the meeting started but I did finish it afterward (I only had about 30% of the book left to finish) and I liked it. I liked it a lot more than some of my friends but that’s okay. I really enjoyed both Leena and Grandma Eileen. I liked their stories, liked seeing their life swap adventure and I’m very interested in reading more of Beth O’Leary’s books thanks to this one so yeah, I liked this one.
What I Listened To
Telepathy by BTS
This is my favorite song on the BE album so it doesn’t surprise me that it’s getting a lot of playing time. I listen to it quite often and am happy to report that I can finally sing along to most of the song. Yay for me. Practice really does make perfect.
What I Reviewed
The Start Up | 3.5 out of 5
Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts | 3 out of 5
The BTS Listen: Love Yourself Her, Tear, and Answer
