Friday Day Dreams - January 25

January 25, 2019

TGIF, friends! This was a looong week for many reasons so this girl is ready for the weekend! 

This week's high: Book club! Our book club met this week to discuss The Girls and it was such a fun night with lots of thought provoking conversation. This may be a theme, as last week's high was also related to seeing friends, but it just brings me so much joy to be surrounded by such amazing women and I always feel energized afterwards. Does this mean that I'm an extrovert?!

This week's low: This is an easy one this week: the weather has been rough. Mark says I'm not allowed to complain because I wanted to move back to MN so bad but when it's single digits you're allowed to complain no matter how much you love the place you live. 

What I'm reading: Good Riddance. When I worked at Google they always had free books that were sent to the Google Play Books team so I was able to snag an advanced copy of this and finally started it this week! It will be available on February 5th and so far it's a fun, cute read! Just what I was in the mood for after my last few books were all pretty heavy. 

What I'm watching: Friends from College. We watched the first season when it came out in 2017 and just assumed it had been canceled since it took two years for season two but we were pleasantly surprised to see it waiting for us in our Netflix queue. It's very funny and the 30 minute episodes are the perfect length.

Best thing from the internet: I was just introduced to this Instagram account when Reese Witherspoon shared one of their videos and they have the cutest curated videos of animals😭

Currently obsessed with: Slippers. I now have three pairs, which is utterly unnecessary but makes it more fun to have options when you wear them literally every single day. Our house is VV cold right now so I'm in my slippers from the second I'm out of bed to the second I get back in bed at the end of the day. J. Crew has the best slippers, IMO, and I've been loving this pair because there are no pesky laces that end up coming untied. 

Weekend plans: I'm hoping for this to be a productive weekend, which means I'll have to overcome the extreme sense of laziness that sets in when it's 8 degrees outside😇I have returns to make, I want to clean out my closet and there's a shelf I've been meaning to build for a month. Wish me luck!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Friday Day Dreams - January 18

January 18, 2019

Hello hello! I'm excited to be launching a new series today that I hope to keep up with every Friday. Personally, my favorite thing to read on blogs is, well, personal things! I love a good couture outfit but feeling a connection to someone is usually what keeps me coming back. So in the interest of doing that in a semi-structured way I'm launching Friday Day Dreams. Every Friday I'm going to share the following things: My high/low from the week, what I'm reading, what I'm watching, my favorite thing from the internet, weekend plans and what I'm currently obsessed with. These categories were inspired by some of my favorite content creators like Bad on Paper Podcast, which I adore, and Krista's Friday Five posts and Mackenzie's rose and thorn posts. I think it will be a fun way to share what I'm up to and hopefully will turn you on to some new things you love as well! The bonus will be that it acts as a little journal for me if I ever want to go back and see what was going on in my life at a certain point. Let's get started!

This week's high: I had dinner with two of my best girlfriends from college on Tuesday and it was such a fun night. I don't see them nearly enough and the whole night we kept saying, why don't we see each other more?! So here's to making plans with friends more of a priority. 

This week's low: Honestly nothing stood out as a true low this week. Kind of a lame way to start this off but not having a low is a good thing!

What I'm reading: Dead Mountain. So random. I cannot remember where I heard about this book but I'm hooked!

What I'm watching: When Mark's not home I watch Schitt's Creek (he's not into it) and find it so entertaining. All of the characters have their own hilarious quirks and I can never decide who's my favorite because they're all so good.

Best thing from the internet: So I have two this week. I had seen this guy's Instagram before but was reminded about it when Jennifer Garner posted one of his videos this week. He makes these uplifting dance videos with emojis and inspirational quotes and I can't get enough. This one is my favorite!

My second favorite thing was this TV show announcement. #SpaceForce I👏am👏here👏for👏this.

Currently obsessed with: Laneige lip mask. I know this is bougie AF, but hear be out: it is so luxurious and your lips will feel like a million bucks. I am unfortunately addicted to lip balm and have found that I don't have to apply this one as often as others because it keeps you feeling moisturized longer!

Weekend plans: We're going out for dinner and to see Vice with my sister and her boyfriend on Saturday and that's it for now. I'm looking forward to sleeping in and doing a lot of reading!

Have a wonderful weekend!

There's not really a rhyme or reason to today's post, I just wanted to share a few of my favorite things as of late! I didn't get my act together to share much holiday content so there are some items that may be a bit passed their prime, but they're on sale now so you could snag them and be ready for next holiday season😏 Let's get into it!

These photos were from my book club in September so I thought I'd share them today while I tell you about some of the books I've been reading the last few months! These pics are making me miss the days of green grass and bare shoulders though, let me tell you. Our book for September was The Lost Vintage so naturally our meeting that month was a French-themed picnic.
