Thoughtful Third Thursday: Montana Mystery Edition

ERMAHGAD! We moved to Montana!!!!

And it’s totally awesome. Even though I’m living in a LOT of boxes and nothing is where it should be and I don’t know how to organize my kitchen.

So during the move I decided I realllllly wanted to read a book set in Montana. BUT. I don’t love Westerns.  They are just generally too much of a sausage fest for me.  I’m like – where are the LADIES?! 

But I digress!  I found kind of the perfect book. Set in Montana in a small town.  The lead character, Erin Murphy, is a foodie who just moved home to MT from Seattle (!!!).  And it’s a mystery.  So Seattle–>Montana + Food + Mystery = The perfect book for Chessa while she moves!

Check it out for yourself: Death Al Dente by Leslie Budewitz

I am currently waiting for the second book to become available at the library (Crime Rib! Ha!!!). 

One of the recurring outfit elements that Erin mentions is her kick-ass red boots.  Alas, I have no red boots, but I thought the cordovan could probably substitute okay.  I’d digging the cozy cardigan (picked up at Costco of all places) paired with my favorite scarf and the boots for a fall look that would be at home in Seattle or Montana. 

(Forgive me for the dark photos – I’m still trying to figure out the best place at the new house for selfies!)

TARDIS Tuesday: B Team Strikes Again

So I’ve been *mostly* sticking to my capsule wardrobe (there have been a couple late additions and a pair or two of shoes – but honestly, I think I haven’t worn at least one pair that I included so it’s a wash, right?) πŸ˜‰ Continue reading
