My Favorite Things of the Week

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.Β  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 imagineΒ  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.Β  Thoughts?

What are your favorite things this week? What is your favorite magazine? Any cookbook suggestions I should check out next?

About paleorunnergirl

I am obsessed with cooking, running and reading! I teach American Literature at the college level, but enjoy books of all kind! After years of GI issues and being prescribed numerous medications, I found perfection in eating Paleo! I am no longer bloated, nauseous, or miserable on a daily basis. I have delved into creating Paleo recipe-making and embracing an active and playful life!

  1. I love reading magazines, too! I look forward to my down time when I can read my Women’s Health and Cooking Light, and just relax. Have you ever seen Bethenny Frankel’s cookbooks? I’ve found some good recipes in those! πŸ™‚

  3. Favorite thing this week? Seeing an old friend for lunch. It’s was like we had never been apart! Favorite magazine: People. Full of trash….but I love it! (Dying right now reading all the Kim Kardashian stories.) Such a sad, sad deal. Bad choices to be sure.

  9. oh sally anne – i know the feeling RE; reality TV!! The blurry line b/ween reality tv and documentaries can be so confusing someitmes. Me and my college roomate used to have an obsession with (and this is very cruel) tv documentaries about SUPER fat people – like the ones who have to be cranelifted out of their homes – and their journeys to thinngess – usually through surgery. Docu? Reality TV? or the modern equivalent of going to a freak show?! who knows! My moral compass was way off but i did love thme!! Best thing this week is 10 course wine tasting last night – AMAZING!!!

  10. Haha yes, I watched some of Sister Wives a while back and my mind was completely boggled. I found it so funny that the ladies got all emotional about him wooing his fourth wife…I mean, there are already 3 of them, so what does it matter if he adds a 4th? Haha.

  13. I love magazines. They are so fun. And of course, I store away the little health tidbits to repeat to anyone who will listen. I can’t help it! I love Clean Eating, Cooking Light, Bon Appetit, Glamour, InStyle, Women’s Health, really anything I can get my hands on!

    I’ve seen Sisterwives. It was on one day, and I couldn’t stop Googling questions about “logistics” while I was watching an episode. So crazy.
