Friday Faves 10.24.14

I am SUPER ready and SUPER excited for F-R-I-D-A-Y!

overall I had a pretty awesome week!  I did what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it. Yesterday I did NOT want to do anything after work, so…..I didnt!! Normally I would have forced myself to go to the gym, or run, or do something, BUT I didn’t want to. I wanted to relax. I lay on the couch and read! OMG! That is not me……BUT I like the new me!


Yes. It felt “uncomfortable”. Yes. I felt “lazy”. and YES I enjoyed doing nothing.  There. I said it.  I ENJOYED doing nothing. I enjoyed NOT working out. I did not want to work out. I did NOT eat less. I ate well and was satisfied (normally I would punish myself with a smaller meal if I didn’t exercise)

So its moments and days (several days!) like these that make me realize how far I have come. This week was a glimpse of my happiness 🙂 I never want to loose that again!

Favorite Food(s):

I tried it. Peanut Butter and cream cheese.  Eh.  It was GOOD but nothing AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, SPECTACULAR.  Not much different in my opinion.

BUT then I am pretty partial to my oats…..I do NOT want to hurt their feelings by finding suitable replacements 🙂

Favorite Thoughts:


Ok, so this is what has been boggling my mind the past week.  I am currently reading listening to The Goldfinch.  WHY is Theo counting? I feel VERY silly/stupid for asking this question, but I have googled it and tried to figure out on my own.  IS IT PART OF THE AUDIO book, or part of the story? If you have read the hard copy/book please let me know if he is really counting something (if so, what!?) or if this is part of the audio book. Please answer this question, so I can enjoy my weekend 🙂  (You KNOW its bugging the crap out of me!)

I am thinking about this cuteness for my office or library, better yet MOM, for YOUR library room!!!

I really want to get my mom and me nice, comfy pajamas for our next getaway to Myrtle Beach. I envision us crafting, having wine, or coffee, watching tv or reading while wearing cute/warm/comfy pajamas all snuggled up 🙂

The Fireside Long Jane Pajama

A few years ago, we did an amazing 3 generation Girls Getaway weekend at Jim Thorpe, PA.  My mom, aunt, cousin and grandmom were all there for manicures, wine, food, fun and massages.  I remember having the BEST massage to date. Afterward I slipped into a white robe and had the most peaceful, relaxed, serene night of sleep. I felt weightless. Like I was floating… I have always wanted a white bath robe just like it to bring back those memories!

I am thinking about seeing Mary Poppins at the Walnut Street Theater. I have always loved the movie, it would bring back so many childhood memories!

Think that I REALLY need to change my documents back to my maiden name. This would require a day off because everything MUST be done in person 😦  Hopefully I will have something non-holiday off that I can take care of this!  I want to add this to my Feeling Accomplished list!

Favorite FUN/finds:

I love this light fixture!

  1. 1. tank top and shorts and they have to be very soft and lightweight.
    2. Doing some shopping, but my weekend plans are like what you did yesterday, relax, watch a movie and not feel pressured or forced to do anything. (very happy for you that you were able to relax and read and ride out the uncomfortable feelings, That’s great progress!)
    3. I like going out to dinner on Fridays, it feels like a celebration to have the whole weekend ahead!

    Those craft shows look like a lot of fun- enjoy!


  2. 1. comfy pjs lightweight though and not a super fan of flanner, more cottony. Plus i still have to change my documents to my married name – i have no idea what to do…HELP ME!
    2. Not much saturday just watching kids play and taking it easy, straightening up. Sunday soccer and home again.
    3. My favorite way to spend friday night is curling up on the couch in my pjs with a glass of wine in peace and quiet .
    I am glad you are enjoying “doing nothing” from time to team, its the best.


  3. 1. I remember you and michelle always exchanged PJ;s , i always loved that idea!
    Ok, so the FIRST thing you need to do to change your name….Social Security office. Take care of that first bc you will need it for your license. 1. Soc Sec card 2. Drivers license 3. Bank accounts, etc
    2. I am goign to try to make soccer
