Just wanted to pop in with a few of may favorite things this week.
Blog: There are so many blogs that I try to keep up with. I love fashion and style blogs because I get so many great ideas, and it’s just fun for me to look at clothes (even if I can’t afford to buy most of them). But so many fashion blogs are by and for women who are much younger than me. So I was very excited to find Style at a Certain Age. Blogger Beth Djalali always looks stylish and current without being trendy. And she always has photos of her dog (and sometimes her cat) on her Friday post!
Book: I’ve been reading Arrowood by Laura McHugh. She’s a local writer, and this novel is set in a small town close to the town I grew up in. She does a great job describing a once great Midwestern river town that is in decline. It’s also a really good mystery and a page-turner. I can’t wait to pick up her other book, The Weight of Water, when I’m done with Arrowood.
Recipe: I’ve already made two batches of these Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies this week. Easy, yummy, and pretty healthy. I made the first batch with chocolate chips and the second batch with frozen blueberries.
TV: I haven’t been watching a ton of stuff, but my favorite current show is Jane the Virgin. This is a show that manages to be a lot of fun, but also tackles some deep subjects. The actress, Gina Rodriquez, is so good, and Jane is a character I am always rooting for. The season finale was Friday, and it was a real shocker! Now, I can’t wait for next season.
Please share some of your favorite things!
