Friday Faves: Inaugural Edition

Holy moly!  So many posts in one week!  You should be so lucky.  Or I should be so lucky rather.

So, you might have noticed from my last few sentences that I’m trying this new thing where I post more than once a month.  In an effort to keep this up, I’m going to try to do a few themed posts weekly/monthly/whenever I feel like it.  So that leads us to Friday Faves.

This week’s list sort of a hodge podge of things that just make me super happy.

 1.) Roseanne. Particularly the scene about 5 minutes into this clip with Becky dancing.

So, lately I’ve been trying to watch different older tv shows to fall asleep to at night.  First there was The Office. Then 30 Rock. Now Roseanne.  I don’t know about you but this show just makes me laugh.  I’ve probably seen every episode at least once.  And did you know Joss Whedon wrote for this show? That’s the type of fact that can really win a girl over.  So long as that girl is me.

2.) Fantastic prints from various Esty sellers.

Guh. Star Wars awesomeness.

This seller's work makes me crazy happy.

3.) Friendship bracelets

Okay, am I the only one who found it crazy cathartic to just sit down and get lost in making these as a kid? Well, after seeing this post on Honestly, WTF I jumped over to Amazon and ordered me up some ebroidery thread to make some.  So maybe there will be a DIY post soon with the outcome.

4.) Finding new blogs to read every day.

So, check out that bar to the right aka my blogroll.  I am so in love with all these bloggers.  I have a major girl crush on all of them and their style/craftiness/food abilities/general awesomesauce.  First I found door sixteen.  Then Yellow Brick Road and Young House Love.  That pretty much rounds out the awesome house blogs.  Then I stumbled onto A Beautiful Mess which led to a whole slew of other awesome reads.  I mean the photos alone on The Dainty Squid, Enjoy It, and LGRAB. Guh. To die for.  Not to mention the inspiration of Kyla Roma, Smile and Wave, and Love Elycia.  Now that’s some insane name dropping.  But trust me, every single one of these blogs are on heavy rotation in my browsing history and soon they will be on yours too.

5.) Books. Books. Books.

Okay, I’ve recently embraced the greatness that is my Nook ereader.  And as such, I have begun my love affair with books again.  Granted, the books I enjoyed the most recently were the young adult series “The Hunger Games”.  But seriously.  Those books were insanely good. Like, read 3 books in 4 days good.  So if you’re looking for a fun summer read, check those out. Soon.

And thus concludes this weeks Friday Faves.  Hope you got something fun out of it!  Let me know if you’re enjoying these new features or if there’s something else you want to hear about. And have an awesome weekend!

      I didn’t actually make those ones. They’re from “Honestly WTF”. But I’m going to try really hard to make some that are that pretty.
