What a week! I am feeling a lot better, but my stomach is still giving me problems! My sister (the nurse in training!) thinks that I have food poisoning verses a virus. In that case it can take up to two weeks for it to move out of my system. Oy!
At any rate it is almost the weekend so I think we should focus on the better things in life! It has been for-ev-er since I have done a ‘Friday Favorites’ post, so I thought that I would bring it back from the dead today. Here is what is rocking my world as of late:
Favorite Read: Dancing on Broken Glass by Ka Hancock
This book, oh this book. The story, the characters, the prose. It captured my heart. From amazon:
“Lucy Houston and Mickey Chandler probably shouldn’t have fallen in love, let alone gotten married. They’re both plagued with faulty genes—he has bipolar disorder; she, a ravaging family history of breast cancer. But when their paths cross on the night of Lucy’s twenty-first birthday, sparks fly, and there’s no denying their chemistry.
Cautious every step of the way, they are determined to make their relationship work—and they put their commitment in writing. Mickey will take his medication. Lucy won’t blame him for what is beyond his control. He promises honesty. She promises patience. Like any marriage, there are good days and bad days—and some very bad days. In dealing with their unique challenges, they make the heartbreaking decision not to have children. But when Lucy shows up for a routine physical just shy of their eleventh anniversary, she gets an impossible surprise that changes everything. Everything. Suddenly, all their rules are thrown out the window, and the two of them must redefine what love really is.”
I finished this novel almost two weeks ago, but I keep thinking about it. I love when a story stays with you and you wonder what the characters are up to now. This is one of those stories!
Favorite Jam: Anything – and I mean ANY-THING! – by the Avett Brothers
They can do no wrong in my eyes. Every song speaks to my heart. Joe and I saw them live for the second time this month and the whole show was perfection. Each song is poetry set to the music of strings and amazing vocals. Besides that, those brothers are HAWT! The folky, hipster, banjo lover in me cannot get enough.
Favorite Eye Candy: Charlie Hunnam I am still watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix and I am almost done with season four, aka the season where Jax cuts of his hair. And just when I think that he could not possibly get any hotter. Does anyone else watch this show?! It’s gooooood. Someone please tell me that Clay gets what he deserves. No wait! Don’t spoil it for me!
Favorite Polished Paws: OPI Mermaid Tears
A perfect shade for the Spring Fever that I have building up inside me!
Favorite Truth:Favorite Dainty Feet: Toms Crochet ClassicsI think there are two types of people in this world: those who love TOMS shoes, and those who think they are ugly. I LOVE them. Every Spring I treat myself to a fresh, new pair and this year that pair will be the crochet classics. Best part is they are giving free shipping right now if you use promo code: CROCHET13. I love me a good deal!
Favorite Bite: Baked Mac & Cheese with Kale and Bacon
Joe and I are HUGE mac & cheese fans and once we can handle rich foods again I am so making this!
Favorite Mitten Love: Manistee Pure Michigan
This is my hometown! I love that the beauty of my small town is getting a lil’ recognition!
Favorite Running Must Have: Diamond Roga Shorts
How cute are these?! I so see me nabbing a Spring half marathon PR in these babies ;-)
Favorite Funny: Off the Leash Dog Cartoon
This is my life! I have to laugh at this because it is so true!
Favorite A-ha: How to hang a sweater
Let’s file this under ‘why didn’t I think of that!’.
Favorite Sip: Ginger Mint SmoothieThis smoothie was the only thing that sounded (and tasted!) good to me this week. If your stomach is upset like mine was, ginger does wonders! Just sub more ice instead of milk and yogurt because dairy does not do wonders on a sour tummy. End result: Refreshing!
There ya have it! I am wishing everyone a happy, safe, and run filled weekend! I am kicking off mine with a Friday night wedding. Oh la la!
Tell me what you are reading, eating, sippin’, watching, or jamming to this week!
