Happy Friday!!! I am excited for this weekend it is supposed to be in the 50′s on Saturday so I am planning on strapping on my hiking books and hitting the trails. There is only a little bit of snow on the ground so I think it should be fine to go out. Then on Sunday is one of my nieces birthday parties so it should be a full weekend. So let’s get on with my five things I am loving this week.
One. I was paired with Meg from Borrowed Heaven for the Mug Swap . It was so fun getting to know her and learning more about her and she is a New England girl too! She got me the cutest mug, some tea, and cupcake liners. I already put the mug and tea to good use and now I need to make some cupcakes soon.
Two. Virtual Mugs!
Brianne from Being Bracco considers animal prints as neutrals so I figured this mug was perfect! She has great style and sweet as can be.
Three. I did this workout on Wednesday and it kicked my booty. I tried to keep the rest between sets really low. Go check out Workoutroutine on Instagram for more workout inspiration.
Four. The blog world seems to be obsessed lately with talking about how life is messy and not just showing the perfect side of life. Not judging. I have no opinion on this really it’s your blog, post what you want to post. Everyone knows life is imperfect so even if you only show the good, that’s never the whole story. I figured I would just leave you with something to think about.
Sometimes we just hide it better than others.
Five. Currently reading The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh and loving it so far. It is a little on the darker side and a little back country mystery but I love the dynamics of the characters. I wish I could just stay home and read it in one sitting.
The Dane family’s roots tangle deep in the Ozark Mountain town of Henbane, but that doesn’t keep sixteen-year-old Lucy Dane from being treated like an outsider. Folks still whisper about her mother, a bewitching young stranger who inspired local myths when she vanished years ago. When one of Lucy’s few friends, slow-minded Cheri, is found murdered, Lucy feels haunted by the two lost girls-the mother she never knew and the friend she couldn’t protect. Everything changes when Lucy stumbles across Cheri’s necklace in an abandoned trailer and finds herself drawn into a search for answers. What Lucy discovers makes it impossible to ignore the suspicion cast on her own kin. More alarming, she suspects Cheri’s death could be linked to her mother’s disappearance, and the connection between the two puts Lucy at risk of losing everything. In a place where the bonds of blood weigh heavy, Lucy must decide where her allegiances lie.
Well that is it for me. Let the clock run quick so i can go home and finish my book. #nerdproblems
What are you up to this weekend?
