This Girl Likes #6

Hello!  I am so excited for this post today!  I haven't done a "This Girl Likes" post in forever, so this is going to be a doozy of a post, as I have a ton of stuff to share.  Let's get started!
  • Okay, so unless you've been hiding under a rock or don't like period dramas (what?), you probably know that Downton Abbey has aired for a fifth season.  I watch it through Amazon, and so far I am loving it.  I'm so glad it's back! *heart-eyes*  And because I am sort of (very) obsessed, I followed an awesome Twitter account called Lady Mary's Eyebrows.  Yes.  And it is absolutely great.  If you're a superfan like me, go check it out.  
  • Also, Agent Carter!  This show is amazing.  Peggy Carter is so good, and I love seeing a Marvel show set in the past as I really liked that in the first Captain America film.  She's all red lipstick, heels, and killer fighting moves and I am loving it.  I follow Hayley Atwell on Twitter, and I would totally recommend following her.  She's funny and seems like such a down-to-earth person I would totally want to hang out with IRL.  Also, this article is kind of the best.  Made me laugh way too loud.  
  • I've talked about She Reads Truth on the blog before, but this year they have a new plan to read through the entire Bible in a year.  I am following along in addition to their usual plans (John right now), and so far I'm really enjoying it!  You read from the Old Testament and New Testament on a given day, and that keeps it from getting kind of long.  
  • I have discovered a new blog thanks to a tweet – man, I love Twitter.  Anyway, it's a super fun and funny blog about pop culture stuff with a generous sprinkling of level-headedness and semi-profundity.  It's called The Sugar Box and this is an awesome post.  Also, this one.  K, stopping now.
  • I have new music I'm kind of in love with!  I literally discovered it like the day I wrote this which would have been yesterday, so yeah, I discovered it yesterday.  Anyway, it is a new album by Misty Edwards, and it is the best.  I am loving it right now!  I haven't bought it yet, I'm still listening on The Drop, but it is a fantastic album and my favorite songs are "Killing Me With Mercy," and "Sound of A Heart."  She is a indie/worship artist, and color me obsessed.  Her lyrics are beautiful and profound and so real.  Click on the link above and go have a listen!
  • I have found so many neat/beautiful quotes on Pinterest recently, and I think this one is so good for the first month of the year.  And the handwriting!  Perfect.
  • One more neat link before I sign off.  I am always interested in reading those lists of "books everyone must read," and this one I came across is so neat!  If you click on the title, it will take you to the book on Amazon.  I selected a few classics from the image to use in my reading challenges for 2015.  It's really neat.
And that wraps up this installment of "This Girl Likes!"  I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been enjoying around the web lately.  Have a great Friday and I will be back sometime this weekend with an update on War & Peace!  Thanks for reading!  xo, Ella
