Well, in all honesty, my list of favorite things this week could be very small. I mean the whole having electricity is my most favorite thing in all of the world! However, I do have several things that are making me week extra wonderful! As always, everything you see here is less than $5. In fact, most of them were FREE!
1) Mindless Magazine reading
Reading magazines totally chills me out! I am especially loving Southern Living. I am SO ready to return to the South. I miss porching and magnolias, and people calling me “honey.” I am also enjoying compiling home decor ideas. I have ZERO idea on how to decorate so I need all the help I can get!
2) Nail Polish
Sorry for the glare! This is NYC Battery Park Purple. It cost $1.99 at Target. I just love having pretty nails! It makes me feel so pampered. I also feel very trendy wearing purple polish–a nice change from my normal red!
3) Reading Cookbooks
Lately I have been checking out several cookbooks every time I go to the library. I picked up two different “All Recipe” books and I am LOVING them. They have pictures on almost every page–love it! I always get so many recipe ideas from reading cookbooks. I like to try to Paleo-ize recipes or take notes for recipes I may make for my family for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
4) Sister Wives
Um, has anyone else seen this show on TLC. It is bananas. It is about a polygamist family. There is one husband, four wives, and TWENTY children between them all. I am completely captivated. They have the entire first season on Instant Netflix and it is so addicting. Seriously, if you have Netflix, you HAVE to check it out. I cannot even imagine being in a plural marriage. I am trying to figure out if my taste in reality TV is getting better or more pathetic. This seems almost like a documentary…kind of. Thoughts?
What are your favorite things this week? What is your favorite magazine? Any cookbook suggestions I should check out next?
