Happy Friday! I am so excited that I have this day off. I hopefully will get out to the hiking trails to enjoy it, after the insurance adjuster comes out and takes a look at my basement again. I am also heading out for another girls night for a beer tasting. I am just hoping my liver can stand a third night of drinking, I am not 21 anymore. Wish me luck.
I am also switching it up this week and linking up with Amanda at Meet At The Barre for Friday Favorites since hers always makes me laugh.
Like I’ve said before I like all music but I am a rocker chick at heart. It is what I listen to at the gym, in the car, and when I want to tone people out at work.
I am going to be cheesy and say my own Eggplant Parmesan because I do love it and am making it again this weekend. Addicted.
Favorite Mug of The Week
A Friday wouldn’t be a Friday without the mug of the week. So this week I am giving one a Virtual Mug to Kelli of She Crab Soup. She makes me jealous living so close to the beach and having actual warm weather to enjoy it. She also works from home and started a new series from How To Design Your Own Blog so be sure to check her out.
After a really horrible book I was so glad to pick up a nice light and fun book. I didn’t want to put this book down and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
From Good Reads: The up-and-coming matchmaking agency Kinnections is the hottest thing to hit Verily, New York—just like Kennedy Ashe, social director for the service she owns with her two best girlfriends. A coach, consultant, and cheerleader rolled into one super-sizzling package, Kennedy creates dream dates, encourages singles to shine, and never refuses a challenge—not even Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle, rocket scientist, nerd extraordinaire, and Kennedy’s newest client.
Kennedy vows to work her magic and transform this hot mess in a lab coat with a disastrous relationship track record into the most wanted man on the Verily dating scene. If only she could turn the wand on herself . . .
Though she radiates confidence and sex appeal, Kennedy harbors deep-seated insecurities from a tormented past and lifelong struggle with weight issues. When she realizes she and Nate are cut from the same cloth and might be perfect together, can Kennedy learn to let her heart lead the way? Or will her fears sentence her to the sidelines as Nate finds love—with someone else?
What I need to do this weekend but what I feel like doing. Cue up an episode of Hoarders that always help.
Just me? No.
How I felt about getting to see Maddie again last night when she came up to Boston. We got to be snarky and sassy together. Her Sister In Law also got to learn a little more than she wanted about blogging. So many laughs.
What are you up to this weekend?
Krystal R. says
That eggplant Parmesan looks. so. good!! Also that first ecard about cleaning the house … that has been me lately :/ haha
Thank you so much! It is so not happening for me this weekend either. Haha!
I LOVE the mug, it’s perfect!! It sounds like you have a great weekend planned, enjoy your hike today!
Glad you liked it. Hope Little K feels better soon. I am taking Seamus for a walk now but hiking is to come! 😉
Your eggplant Parmesan should be your fav it looks delicious! You always make me smile- happy Friday!
Thank you. That is the best compliment. Hope you are having a great weekend.
Enjoy your hike today! When my dog leaves me to go to a different room I feel slighted. lol. Especially when it’s bed time and she’s supposed to be sleeping with me!
It is the worst feeling. Don’t they know it’s snuggle time.
Amanda Elizabeth says
Bahahaha love your funnies!!! I totally get that heartbreak when a pet walks away…can’t you snuggle just a few more minutes???? That eggplant parm looks so good!! Thanks for linking up girl! Hope you have a fab weekend xoxoxoxo
Thank you. It is heartbreaking. So glad to linkup. Enjoy the weekend!
So jealous you have the day off!! Enjoy it!! Your eggplant parm was definitely my favorite recipe as well haha!!
It was so nice. I spent most of it outside. Thank you! 🙂
Oh that mug is so cute! Enjoy your 3 day weekend! I’m at work today so I’m a bit jealous 🙂
Sorry you had to work. Do you get Monday off?
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
Perfect mug for Kelly!
I hate when my dogs snub me.
Enjoy your three day weekend!
I kinda want one too so I can pretend I’m at the beach! 😉 Hope you have a great weekend too.
You are my music soulmate, I think. So glad to see a fellow rocker in this country filled blogland! Enjoy your 3 day weekend! 🙂
Woohoo!! Yes we need to share when we find new tunes too. Thank you! Hope you have a good weekend!
Haha omg that “funny” about pets leaving the room! I get so sad when Rox leaves me in the middle of the night lol! We are having family over this weekend, and I think eggplant parm might make an appearance 😉
Isn’t it the worst feeling?! Ohh that sounds like a great idea!
I do love some Hinder! That ecard is making me laugh too because it is so true!
Rock on!! I am putting off on cleaning right now actually! 😉
I get the SAME way when JC leaves the bed! Bahahahahahahahahahahhahaaaaa! Last night Pete and I were talking about this when we went to sleep because he jumped off of it.
You just HAD to show me that damn eggplant parm again, didn’t you? I WANT IT RIGHT NOW!
It is so sad, right? Why don’t you love me!! 🙁 Are you counting down to when you can eat spicy food again.
Melissa @ Loving Life Moore says
I’m making the eggplant parm for my husband tonight! I doubt I’ll be able to eat it because I’m SO queasy, but he is so excited! Have a great weekend!
Hope he likes it! Hopefully you will be able to hold some solid foods down soon. 🙁
Jana @ The Townhouse Pioneer says
Hoarders always makes me want to clean!!!
I love eggplant parm and I’m the only one in my family who eats it so good. More for me.
I am a big rocker chick. It’s my favorite go-to music for pretty much every situation. Hinder is awesome to listen to at the gym. I’m on a huge Volbeat and Shinedown kick right now. Also Halestorm and I’ve just discovered Black Stone Cherry. Spotify is the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time and I’m adding this song to my playlists.
Have a great weekend!
It is the best motivation! Keeping it all for yourself is awesome! Hinder is perfect for the gym. I haven’t heard of Volbeat I’ll have to check them out. Love Halestorm. Hope you have a rocking weekend! 😉
Eggplant parmesan is a favorite of mine too…but it’s been too long since I’ve made it! Mmm I only discovered eggplant a few years ago, but it’s such good stuff! Even just sauteed with garlic. I love ‘mug of the week’ idea!! Hope you enjoy hiking this weekend!
It was so good. I don’t know what took me so long to try it. That sounds good even with just garlic. Thank you.
That mug is so pretty! Now I’m looking at all the designs and I’m loving her work! I can definitely relate to that cleaning someecard as well! Happy Friday 🙂
Thank you. She really does great work. Sometimes cleaning needs to wait. 😉 Have a great weekend!
haha to the cleaning ecard. i wish i had urges to clean more! and good luck with the girls’ night. i can’t hang anymore either ha.
Seriously watch hoarders. It always creeps me out enough to go on a cleaning binge. Haha!
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
Perfect mug for Kelli! I am in a mood so not sure if I’ll do anything this weekend. Although making that eggplant parm will happen for sure.
The beach was a must for her mug. Hope you like the eggplant parm.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
I saw some of Jodi’s pics from your beer get together – so much fun! I hope you’re having a great weekend 🙂
It was a blast! Always good to get the girls together for laughs. Hope you are having a good weekend.
Gloria Phillips says
Kerry, love the new read you recommended. Also, LOVE Hinder. My fav song for the past couple weeks has been Gemini Syndrome’s song, Stardust. Hope you’re having a fun weekend!
Thank you. It was such an endearing story. Yeah for another Rocker girl. I will check that one out, love adding new tunes. Hope you have a great weekend!
That recipe looks delicious! Happy Easter!
Thank you. It is one of my new favorites. Happy Easter!
Stop that eCard is hilarious! I hope you had a fantastic Easter and a great long weekend!
Thank you. It is just so true! 😉 Hope you had a great weekend!
i am behind on visiting blogs–i’ve been sick. boo!
Hope you feel better soon!

That book is on my TBR! I loved the first one and now I wish my TBR wasn’t so long, but that’s pretty much all the freaking time! 🙂
It was really good!! It is never ending. Read one, add five!! Haha! #readerproblems
