Henceforth, instead of doing my usual “This Moment” posts on Fridays, I am going to do my own version of Friday Favorites. I feel like picking one moment that’s good from a week is too hard. My weeks are full of little things that make me happy and I don’t want to feel constrained to pick just one. On Fridays, I’m going to post things from real life and/or the internet that made me happy during the week. I’m calling it the traditional Friday Favorites, because I really enjoy alliteration and simplicity. So here goes the first edition of Frank’s version of Friday Favorites
The weather was lovely this week here in NJ, almost Spring-like, and the sky was so blue.
I made delicious chocolate cupcakes from my favorite recipe, with made up cream cheese frosting that used almond extract instead of vanilla, and was delicious.
I finished knitting my leg warmers last night. They are fabulously warm and I’m in love, even if I have no idea how to style them without looking like I’m from 1983…
Banana Republic is releasing the Spring Mad Men Collection on March first. We got this ad in the mail, and it made me excited. I love Madmen (season premiere is on March 25th) and their clothes are so cute. I really
need, no want, no need a pair of cigarette pants.
I made some stuffed mushrooms on a weekday. They were 1000 times better than they look.
Guess who got her hair cut and got 1/2 bangs that made her nuts the first day so are being pinned back until they grow out? That’d be me.
Packing to go see Jon (I leave tomorrow), was made much more enjoyable by combining it with a skype chat with my bff, Shellby. This looks like a lot of clothing, but I’m going for a week and it’s cold in Wisconsin.
I’ve been eating salad, for almost every lunch and dinner for a few weeks. This one had hardboiled eggs and avocado and was particularly delicious. It’s part of my get-healthy-scheme, and it’s working because I’ve lost some weight already
This picture needs no words. They are the most swoon worthy couple ever, they even beat out Noah and Allie from The Notebook, and Harry and Ginny, and Hermione and Ron. Could they be any cuter?
The perfect Thursday afternoon; photo editing, eating 100 calorie pack of kettle corn, drinking 80% tonic and 20% pomegranate juice out of my favorite pink cup made by Jon, and watching Top Chef.
As you can see, real life was super good this week. Sorry for the photo overload. The internet has been sort of fun lately too.
# 157 on this website is hysterical, as is the majority of the rest of the content.
Are you on Goodreads? It’s sort of awesome. I have way more books to read than I did before I signed up. Consider yourself warned.
Gnocchi made of Sweet Potato. Need I say more?
I admire this gal a bunch for like everything she writes, but particularly enjoyed her post about friends of different ages.
That’s all for now, folks. Have a great weekend!
