favorite things friday

15 Apr

I’m so excited it’s the weekend!

I haven’t been super productive today…unless you count spending hours browsing for decor inspiration as a major accomplishment.  Although I have done several loads of laundry and gotten in a really great workout, so I haven’t been all bad.

Anyway, for a little Friday fun I thought I’d share just a few things that I’ve been loving lately!

  • First up, the book I just finished this week – The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom.  Once it got going, I simply could not put it down. It was “one of those.”  I highly recommend it!

  • Simple and healthy homemade meals.  I’ve always loved to eat out, but lately I’m just really craving food from home, especially some of my old staples.  Today was lovely getting to be home rather than taking all my food on the go.

whole wheat bread with roasted garlic hummus, broccoli slaw and spinach

kashi, green yogurt, frozen blueberries

  • Apartment Therapy.  I’ve been getting tons of inspiration browsing this website for house decor ideas.
    The husband and I are contemplating what flooring combination to do – stained concrete, wood, tile – so many options!  I’m loving so many elements of this space right now.
  • These shoes I just bought to wear on Easter.  Yes, I’m 27 years old, and I’m still buying clothing items specifically for Easter.  Why not?  It’s a great reason to get some new staples for the beautiful spring weather!  Plus I just couldn’t resist the vintage modern vibe…and they’re comfy too:)
  • Dinners shared in the car with the husband while running house errands.  Actually, just being in the car with the husband while running house errands.  Who am I kidding?
  • And last, Dove dark chocolate.  Just one square (okay, two) does the trick:)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

What is one thing you’re really loving right now?

    ooh, thanks for the book review – that is my kind of review, I like books I can’t put down, and that I start to miss when coming to the end…

    that sandwich looks awesome, and I LOVE apartment therapy! 🙂

      I totally agree – it’s so bittersweet because it’s been so good, but I’m always so sad when it’s over!

      I’m so addicted to Apartment Therapy now…it’s a problem;)

    The one thing I’m loving right now? How about two things? The first is finding your great blog and the second is that you enjoyed my book. Thank you, Candice!

      Wow, Kathleen! I don’t even know what to say – I’m so honored that you commented on my little blog. You completely made my day! I love historical fiction and non-fiction, and I live for books as engaging and passionate as The Kitchen House. Thanks for stopping by, and thanks even more for such a wonderful book!

    I love that you bought shoes just for Easter! 🙂

      haha, my mom instilled it in me:) At least they aren’t white patent with lacy white socks anymore! did you wear those when you were a little girl?

      • Lesley Lifting Life April 18, 2011 at 10:00 am #

        YES! I definitely did. And my mom made a foofy Easter dress for my sister and I ever year.

    Right now I’m really loving collard wraps, The Rainmaker by John Grisham, and spending lots of time outside!

    • candice April 18, 2011 at 9:59 am #

      Collard wraps? I might have to come over and try to find these on your blog – I’m intrigued:) Hope you had a great weekend! And amen to being outside!
