It’s Friday at last! And a beautiful and busy weekend is ahead of me. Can’t wait, the weeks and days are just getting better and better… So this Friday, I thought I’d do something a little different. I got the idea from Peanut Butter Fingers (one of my FAVORITE blogs) – she simply answers some topical questions about what is currently happening in her life. I love it! I love making lists, and this is a great way to realize what is happening in your life, during those times life can seem to be speeding by so quickly.
On a recommendation from a co-worker, I have started reading the Game of Thrones series, in addition to watching the HBO series online. I AM SO ENTHRALLED. I just recently started the first book, after watching the entire first season on HBO. Now, typically I don’t do this, but the TV series is phenomenal, so I had to get into the books as well.
In addition to this more serious, heavy book, I am going to start reading a Chelsea Handler book, which my roommate owns and LOVES. My Horizontal Life sounds like a hilarious book, and I can’t wait to read it!
Perfect timing for this topic – I just updated my music last night! Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, AWOLNATION, Mat Kearney…and the like. I’ve also been listening to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (who I was lucky enough to see at a FREE Yahoo! On The Road concert last Sunday!). They are incredibly energetic and talented performers!
And on a different music note, I’m very excited to see Zac Brown Band coming up the second week of June at Alpine Valley! It’s going to be a fantastic concert 🙂
Current Guilty Pleasure:
All natural crunchy peanut butter. Hands down. It’s been my “current guilty pleasure” for about…oh… five years now.
Current Nail Color:
On my fingernails, nothing. I haven’t decided what to put on them yet, so I just let them breathe while I decide (could be awhile…). On my toes, I put an awesome Sapphire blue. Sooo pretty, and a nice burst of color coupled with summer sandals.
Water. Always. Sometimes tea – but water is definitely my drink.
Hmmm. Tough one. I’d have to say dried and pitted dates. I know… sounds strange, but I LOVE THEM. They’re a great sweet treat after dinner, and are a great substitute for other processed candies or ice cream (not to mention they have lots of good fiber)… definitely my new favorite snack.
Just had my morning oatmeal: Irish-style oats, chia seeds, a spoonful of all-natural creamy peanut butter, and blueberries on top. So filling, and oh so delicious, especially after tough morning workouts.
Current Favorite Show:
As stated earlier, I’m watching the Game of Thrones series on HBO GO. I finished season one and am venturing into season two – dramatic story line, lots of promiscuity, and action scenes incomparable to any other movies or TV shows I’ve seen. The cinematography is breathtakingly…dare I say… perfect?
Current Wish List:
As with most females, I’d expect, my wish list has more than “a few” items on it! I’m looking for comfortable, versatile black flats I can wear anywhere (work, out, festivals in the summer, etc.). Also I’m ON THE PROWL for a cropped denim jacket. I need one for summer! I’ve recently purchased a variety of maxi dresses and I really want this nice summer jacket to wear over them. Any suggestions? I’ll take any ideas!
See denim jacket rant above 🙂
Oh, and the sun to come out – this cloudiness is doing no good!
My casual Friday work attire. Black leggings, a B&W striped peplum top and white sandals. Hair in a ballerina bun 🙂 Very comfy. But lately, maxi dresses have been my new favorite! I am on roll collecting them for summer!
My Florida Keys trip coming up with my family!!! I have been looking forward to this vacation for months! We’re going down for a week, filled with sun, sand, and smiles 🙂 I can’t wait to lay on the beach soaking up those rays. Ahhh, 10…more…days!
