Friday Morning

Happy Friday everyone, I'm definitely looking forward to just chilling out for the next few days. It's the first week of summer activities and I'm drained. Even though I've been working in libraries for six years now and spent three and half years studying library science, it still astounds me how many people and families visit the library, especially during the summer! It makes me happy to see the support and love that people give us. Don't mind me, I'll be in bed by 9 PM if not earlier this weekend. What are your plans? Have a good one and see you next week!

Top 5

If there's one thing I horde, it's coffee table books. From Princess Di (because I grew up idolizing her) to travel books, interior design and fashion, I love to swoon over glossy photographs and dream...dream of wearing overpriced shoes or haute couture gowns or fall into serious wanderlust with all the travel books I have. I've had some of these for a awhile and others are recent purchases but these five I often revisit whether for inspiration and just to let my mind wander. Are you a serious book collector? What type of books do you like to keep? How do you organize your oversized books?

Shopping For Summer

Summer is definitely in full force where I live, this week it's suppose to reach high triple digits and I'm not thrilled about it! The mass exodus has already happened and just looking at the deserts-cape makes it feel infinitely warmer. It's pretty much desolate and for those of us who live here full time we're staying indoors all day long. Because of the extreme heat, I'm stocking up on lots of liquids and fruit. Remember that book I mentioned last year? Well I'm still reading it, using it as a shopping guide and following a few recipes, I'm making this tonight! What is your favorite summer recipe?

Summer Challenges

How is your summer going so far? Aside from the heat, it's going by pretty slowly, which to be honest I'm glad. Usually this time of the year flies by for me. Time spent at home is focused on relaxing and working on projects whether that means making waffle pressed cinnamon rolls, hosting a nostalgic movie marathon or getting started knitting a blanket. If you remember a few weeks ago I started a little challenge, which I'm still working on by the way and one that I completed, well sort of. A few weeks ago, I promised to not watch television for an entire week and I was doing pretty well until the fourth day in. My sister just introduced Broad City to a friend and without even thinking about it I joined in because, well it's Broad City. About half way through the second episode my sister sort of freaked out and called me out, "You better not tell people you made it through your week of no tv." Almost making it, I plan on doing this again over the summer and hopefully incorporate it into my routine later into the year. How are you doing on your summer challenge? Are you following some sort of to do list over the next few months? What's on your list? What are you up to this summer?
