3. This Amazing Serving Plate-


Can't you just imagine the most whimsical cheeseboard served on this plate! Picture it now; you're on your patio and it's 75 degrees. You're enjoying a nice salami and bleu cheese off of this board. Can you see it? Seriously, I love these colors and that sassy rabbit and its eyelashes!

4. Bad-Ass Ladies Playlist-


In my young life, I listened to a ton of male singers and songwriters. Now, don't get me wrong. My mom introduced me to wonderful singers like Patsy Cline and Tina Turner, but by and large, my favorite bands were led mostly by men. When I went to college I was inundated with a ton of new music and I became enamored with a ton of bands fronted by women! 

I have compiled a mega list of some of my favorites for your listening pleasure. I recommend hitting shuffle so that you get a good mix of artists and styles. Enjoy! 


5. Coyotes Volume 1 by Sean Lewis & Caitlin Yarsky-


I feel like Image comics are really hit or miss for me, so I was skeptical when I checked this book out from my library's e-book supplier (If you patronize the High Plains Library District and you don't use Hoopla, you should be!). But I was pleasantly surprised by this modern take on Little Red Riding Hood. Be advised; this book has some language and a fair bit of blood, so definitely flip through to see if it's for you! I will be checking out future volumes to continue the story of Red and the gals of the City of Lost Girls and officer Frank Coffey. If you read it, please let me know what you think!

3. Daydreaming & Scheming About Tricking Out my Balcony-


Since we bought our home, we've had big plans for the balcony off of our master bedroom and this summer might be the time to get the project started! Our main issue is that the balcony is very long (it runs the length of our house) and its SUPER sunny. One of the first goals is to figure out how to get some shade going on up there.

I've been researching full sun/heat-loving plants and I've been pouring over balcony pics. Here are a few of my favorites!

4. This Swim Suit-


And can we just get a big "heck yes" for Modcloth working with models of all sizes? I love being able to see what a swimsuit will like on a body type similar to mine! Makes it a whole lot easier to shell out my hard earned money for on online clothing piece!

Favorite Friday Favorites #179

1. I Can't Tell You Why I Love This So Much-


But I REALLY do. I couldn't find out much about the artist, but here is his Threadless profile in case you need one of these sick designs on a t-shirt or phone case!

3. This Cat Necklace is EVERYTHING-

4. These Rainbow Jeans-


These pants are INSANELY expensive (You think you fancy, Wrangler?) but I can't help looking at them every so often. Also, they are available in sizes up to 24W! Thanks for thinking of the ladies with a rockin' booty, Modcloth! You're good people! 

Nevermind the fact that I have never in my life been able to wear a pair of Wranglers that didn't make my bottom half look like an upsetting optical illusion. I lived in a rural community, so every so often my mom would try to stick me in a pair of Wranglers and every time I was like, "MOM. Get these outta here! Can we PLEASE get a thrifted pair of Levis up in the house?!"

We're just not going to talk about that & hope that these bad boys are a different cut.

5. John Hodgman is my Brain Crush-


I have spent a considerable amount of my adult life as a low-key hype woman for Hodgman and his various indevours and I don't regret a single second of that time. I don't know much, but I know what I like. Check out Judge John Hodgman if you love smart yet stylish laughs and read Vacation Land if you want to loudly guffaw while feeling nostalgically melancholy. Oh, and he writes a New York Time's column

Does your brain crush have all that? Yeah, I didn't think so.

-I am equally excited and terrified to start this book
-I smelled this perfume from Good Chemistry at Target last weekend and had any been in stock, I would be wearing it as we speak. This unisex body spray was also quite nice. 
-I couldn't be more excited to read this full-length graphic novel by one of my favorite illustrators.

1. Consider This-


This is so important, friends. Let us stay positive, even when things are absolutely falling apart. 

Let us be leaders. 


2. Netflix Recommendations-


I love a good cooking show, but I'm kind of particular about what kind of cooking show I like to watch. If you've been looking for something to fill The Great British Bake-Off hole in your heart, Zumbo's Just Desserts might do that! 

When it comes to Ugly Delicious, I need to tell you that I have cried at every single episode of this program that I've watched. As you watch the show, you'll notice that chefs from different countries and different walks of life continue to refer to food as a bridge between cultures. 

In a time when so many people are crying out for walls and more division, we desperately need more bridges. I hope this show touches your heart as much as it has mine. Also, the food just looks insane!
