My August was a pretty good end to the summer. My sister’s family came down from Canada for a week and we had a good time. My niece is 3 now and she’s a lot of fun (but kind of exhausting). At one point in time she turned down ice cream because she “just wants to play with Aunt Steph,” so I felt on the top of my Aunt game. I also got to see my brother’s family and my other baby niece who is one of the sweetest babies I’ve ever come across. We also went to the McKinley museum and monument which I have not been to since I was a kid and was pretty cool! What home town attractions do you have that you forget about?
I also got to see Karin Slaughter again with Amanda. It was a great time, even if I didn’t get any pictures of her! Here’s one of Amanda and I, though (I look really stupid, but isn’t it a great picture of Amanda?).

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
I remember liking the book ok, but I just absolutely adored the movie! If you have Netflix and haven’t watched this yet, then you really need to change that! I felt like they actually made it a little more innocent than the book was instead of the other way around, which is something that I completely support. Some of the acting wasn’t the best and I definitely understood why this was on Netflix and not a movie theatre, but I was still so pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this. And can I be the millionth person to comment on how amazing the kid playing Peter Kavinsky is? I may have already re-watched this one a couple of times….
Looking forward to September
You premieres on Lifetime on September 9th (though your local listing may be different). You remains one of the most messed up books I have ever read and I am really looking forward to seeing what they do with it on the screen. Here’s hoping Penn Badgley’s Joe can be a better kind of creepy than Dan Humphries…
