book club

this week i attended my very first book club meeting! i have been wanting to join a book club since graduation 1) as a means of meeting new people, and 2) to prevent my brain from turning to mush. my dreams of finding a book club to join came true upon meeting my new and incredible friend k while volunteering! she mentioned her love of books and book club, and i immediately asked to join :)

this month's book was the girl who fell from the sky. it is INCREDIBLE - such a unique story, yet sad (and sadly realistic?). i prepped by baking delicious peanut butter cookies with hershey's kisses. (confession: i strategically made peanut butter cookies to stick with my goal for a healthier lifestyle. however, i put dark chocolate kisses on top, which are my absolute favorite. although i didn't eat any cookies or the usual 810289 pounds of cookie dough, i consumed most of the leftover kisses.) thus, eating healthy = fail; book club = major success!
