What We Are Reading – August 7th


While my husband still has his face in The Bar Book-Elements of Cocktail Technique (I look forward to reaping the rewards of his love of this tome); Aaron and I have moved on to other literary works…..



Ms. Marvel #3 by G. Willow Wilson

I always love a strong yet humanly flawed female character in my reading and this series fits the bill. Awkward Teen + Super Powers = WIN! I am still on the fence about cosplay for comic con. Kamala or Louise from Bob’s Burgers?????





The Lion King version by Justine Korman, Golden Books

Aaron has this book on repeat currently. Combined with the fact that he just saw the film for the first time means there is a bit of Hakuna Matata going on in our house!! Why is Disney so gifted with the irritating catchy tunes???

What are you reading this week???



What We Are Reading – July 29th

There are never enough hours in the day to pin all of the things that I want to pin, watch all of the things I need to watch, and read all of the things I want to read. My evenings are usually spent juggling these things in the precious time after the kid falls asleep and before I do the same. Reading is king in our home and there are always new books coming in (ask me if we bought our home for the built-in bookshelves.) Here are a few of our favorites right now…


The Bar Book – Elements of Cocktail Technique by Jeffrey Morgenthaler

We always welcome new cocktail possibilities and with the husband being a purist this book was a must have. The author is the same bartender I raved about in this post.


The Beast (The X Institute) by Michi Fujimoto

This book has become number two on the kids nightly must read list. Of course Pinkalicious is still numero uno! It’s good to know we are raising a well rounded kid.

My mother gave me this magazine. Does reading it make me middle aged? Well I am that. Do I give a rats tail about Sexy Summer Style? No and actually I don’t care. Zoe Saldana kicks ass!!! What are you reading now? Please don’t say porn.

What We Are Reading – July 22nd

We are always reading something. Be it a magazine, graphic novel or children’s book; the Pinkelton’s like to read. Here are a few of the things that are in our hands and on our coffee table:


Ms. Marvel #3


Eat Vegan Before 6:00


Fun To Read Fairy Tales series


Afar Magazine

What is your family reading?


Love your family this weekend….

Aaron and Russell Pinkelton

This photo was taken when our little man was only 2 months old. The gentleman holding him is the late great Russell Pinkelton. Russell was the younger brother of the original Aaron Pinkelton or Paw Paw as I knew him. Our little guy came along after we lost the original Aaron and I wish they could have met. Needless to say it was quite a treat to capture this moment.

Hug your peeps ya’ll. Have a great weekend.
