I’m always excited for a Friday, however, I have a paper due Sunday that I haven’t started yet, whoops! Hopefully I’ll get some motivation this morning to power through it so I can enjoy my weekend.
And now let’s start my first edition of Friday Faves!
- Weight Watcher’s Dark Chocolate Raspberry Popsicles
When I was grocery shopping earlier this week I was planning on buying yogurt bars but these were on sale at Safeway so obviously I had to buy them. I’m not sure if it is the dark chocolate or what, but these are just SO so good. Clocking in at only 90 calories per pop with only 8 grams of sugar isn’t half bad for dessert! Seriously, try them.
- Oyster Books
So right now in our new apartment we only have internet, no cable. Don’t worry, I’ve been watching the Bachelorette on Hulu Plus the next day (I know you were worried). We can do the online stream for live TV but it is pretty terrible and cuts out or freezes constantly so it is really not worth it. I’ve lived without cable before but I have a feeling we’re going to upgrade soon (hello fall TV). However, I’m enjoying the fact that I can’t just turn on the TV and let mindless shows consume my day, especially now that I’m home for most of the day. I’ve been reading a lot more lately but my library only allows you to check out four books online at a time and you have to wait a week before returning them. So after a little online searching I found Oyster Books, an online book subscription service. Right now I’m just in the free trial period but it is pretty amazing. Every time I log in I see another book I’ve been meaning to read that hasn’t shown up in my library’s online section yet. Loving it!
- Live Bands
Last night we went out to dinner at Gordon Biersch on a whim and apparently every Thursday night during the summer they have a live band on the patio. It was such a treat to sit outside and listen to live music while sipping on sangria. Also, the first song we heard them play was You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne, which I love. Great date night 😀
What made you smile this week?
