Happy Friday Party People!
Is it just me, or did it seem like it took FOREVER to make it to Friday this week? But seriously… it was like an eternity. Now that Friday is finally here, I think this pretty much sums up my feelings on going to work this morning. Tell me I’m not alone in this…
Because inevitably work on a Friday ends up a little like this…
But thankfully, the end is near and pretty soon it’ll look more like this…
Okay, maybe I took that a little too far, but I just couldn’t help myself. Picking the perfect combination of funny Friday graphics is hard work people so you’re welcome!
Anywhoo… enough with that tangent and on to what we’re here for today. These are always some of my favorite posts to read each week because I love to read what everyone is loving. So brought to you by me having to jump on the bandwagon, here’s my five favorite things this week! Enjoy!
close to the lake.
I guess I’ve been spoiled by living close to some body of water my whole life, so it ‘s not surprising that one of my favorite things about my new apartment is it’s close proximity to Greenlake. I went there two weekends ago with Jenica for a morning walk around the lake and loved every minute of it!
2. That Adventure Run season is back in full force!
One of my favorite activities during the spring/summer months is the Adventure Run so when the first run of the season was scheduled to take place this month, I couldn’t have been any more excited. Well… I guess I could have if I would have actually won something but it was still tons of fun anyways!
3. Having fresh flowers in my apartment.
Remember when my parents sent me flowers just because they’re awesome? Yeah, I’m digging having fresh flowers around and plan to keep it up.
4. My new wallet!
I’ve been on the lookout for a new wallet with a wrist strap that could also fit my cellphone inside of it so when I found this peach colored wallet on my trip to Snohomish with my mom and aunt last weekend, I snatched it up! Now if finding exactly what I was looking for isn’t awesome enough, the price tag made it that much better. It was under $20! Can you say score?!?!
5. Audio books.
Since I’m walking around the city a lot now or commuting back and forth from work on the bus, I’ve been listening to a lot of audio books lately. I’m currently listening to “Luckiest Girl Alive” by Jessica Knoll (thanks to Tara at Running N Reading for the recommendation!) and would HIGHLY recommend “Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty, “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins and “The Husband’s Secret” by Liane Moriarty. They are all suspense stories with an ending that I didn’t see coming. I listen to my audio books through the Audible app, but there are various other services like this to choose from.
