Friday Favorites

Here’s a little story for you:

I didn’t post yesterday because my internet randomly went out. I spent almost two hours over the past two days on the phone with the cable company and my internet still didn’t work. Yay. Lucky for you, I had an extra shift at work to write one for today, so you get a Friday Faves post!

First, I have to give a HUGE shout-out to my parents today, who are celebrating their 27th wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary my two crazy kids! I love you. PS dad is boogying down, he’s not actually shorter than mom.



I didn’t really pin that much this week, so instead of that we’re gonna chat about TV for a hot minute. New shows are either starting this week or on their second week. What new shows are you loving? Hating? Here’s what I like:

Sleepy Hollow:
I’ve never read the actual book or seen the movie, but I am really liking Sleepy Hollow so far. It’s a little far out because they mesh the past with the present and some of the special effects aren’t great, but the story is intriguing if you let yourself believe a man awoken from the dead and a cop are destined to save the world from the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Also, Ichabod Crane… dayyyyum. He’s a cutie.


I hadn’t heard of Dylan McDermott until American Horror Story, but I’ve been a fan of his ever since. I think he’s incredibly talented. This show is one of those edge of your seat ones, which are sometimes hard for me to watch, but the concept – holding a doctor and her family hostage because you need her to kill the president during surgery – is a new one. Oh yeah and they all have crazy secrets they’re holding.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine:
Because duh. Andy Samburg. It’s filmed similarly to The Office and has lovable, cooky characters.



Favorite honest:
Sometimes we need to check in with ourselves before we go down a path that could ultimately harm us, both mentally and physically.

Favorite truth:
This is one of the best posts written about the comparison trap and how harshly we judge ourselves.

Favorite shake:
Mint chocolate chip is my favorite flavor of ice cream, so obviously I am down with anything that tastes like it! Healthy to boot? Heck yeah!



Favorite lit:
I love to read (I hope that’s a fairly well-known fact around here). 37 Books For Kids You Need to Re-Read as an Adult… yes. Bunnicula, anyone? I loved that little veggie-blood sucking rabbit. Oh and Where the Red Fern Grows – talk about a cry fest from my elementary days.

That was shorter and sweeter than I would have liked, but who cares! It’s Friday! Go run around in a pile of leaves (too soon) and bake a pumpkin pie (never too soon).

Question of the Day:
What was your favorite childhood book? I preferred any Barbie book when I was too little to read for myself. My dad would read them with me and he’d pick one word to change throughout the story to another word that would make me laugh, like “poop” or something.



  1. Tell your parents congrats for me! My parents just celebrated their 40th anniversary. I feel so fortunate to have parents who are still together and love each other,

    Thanks for sharing my post from Wednesday. Wasn’t an easy one to write but I feel much better getting it off my chest. Just read Julie’s post and it’s so incredibly relevant. I think I may have crossed that line. But life’s a journey and I’m sure I will be able to get back on track!

    Have a wonderful weekend friend 🙂

  2. My internet went out last night too! I have no idea why, but it’s working fine now.. I just went to bed and told myself I’d deal with it in the morning haha. Also Sleepy Hollow sounds like something I’d scoff at and then end up secretly loving haha.
