This is a collection of things that have caught my eye out there in the vast internets recently. Perhaps something here will catch your eye as well…

to watch:

Disney Newsies: The Broadway Musical
I have a long history with the musical Newsies, and have many fond memories of HOURS watching the original movie version with my girlfriends in middle and high school. So yeah, I was thrilled when Disney created this amazing Broadway version, and even happier to hear it was being filmed to experience in movie theaters nation-wide earlier this year. I went by myself to the theater when I was in Portland last February and the whole experience had me grinning from ear to ear like a lovesick girl. The music, the dancing, the acting, the dancing. Oh man, the dancing. Now you can purchase this show and watch it in the comfort of your living room. And if you’re anything like me, make your family sit down and watch it with you. And expect profound levels of gratitude to come your way upon completion. Man, I love theater. I love art.

 

to put on a wishlist:

Hamilton: The Revolution
If you are a Hamilton mega-fan like your’s truly, this gorgeous book should definitely be on your wishlist. I don’t have a copy for myself yet, but browsing through it at my local store had me drooling with desire. The photos from the original cast are gorgeous, the stories and behind-the-scenes information is such a treat, and the whole feel of the book is just lovely. Here’s to hoping it’ll be wrapped up under the Christmas tree for me this year.

 

 

to listen to:

Dear Me by Nichole Nordeman undoes me every single time I hear it. She is singing my story. And maybe it’s your story too? If you have wrestled with faith, with Jesus, with church, with “magic words,” with what it really means to love…give this a listen. But be prepared with a box of tissues and a space to really surrender. It is healing music here friends.

 

to cook:

Healthy One-Pot Enchilada Pasta by peas & crayons

I have been searching for more vegetarian meals to add to our collection and this one was a HUGE hit with all the members of the family. We don’t need Gluten Free, so just used regular whole-wheat rotini pasta. And served with a dollop of sour cream on the side. Super delish.

to read:

Can We Ever Fix Christian Movies?  by Jesse Carey (via Relevant Magazine)
Am I the only one that feels Christian movies can just be so, well, blech, sometimes? Carey speculates that it could be because these films often end neatly, and really feel preachy. Not so with the parables of Jesus. Instead, these ingenious stories have us grappling with layers of ambiguity and with questions that often don’t have a tidy answer. If Christian movies became more like the parables of the New Testament, would that make them better?

Red Saltwater Sandals 
Dreaming of how adorable my feet will look in these this summer. Added them to my Mother’s Day wishlist.

to listen to:


I first heard “Better With You” by Orianthi at the gym and I loved the upbeat tempo and positive message. Crank it up and dance around your house a little today.

I have been struggling with my slow cooker lately and feeling like it always dries out my dinners. But this dish, OMG. Soooo good. Moist and delicious with incredible flavors. Like the author, I pretty much at the leftovers for lunch three days in a row. Easy, healthy, and delicious = my kind of dinner (and lunch apparently).
