Favorite Friday Favorites #186

1. Consider This-


I recently took on a new challenge (more on that later) and am super apprehensive. Not gonna lie! I recently realized that I am in a season of constant change and my natural state is to hate, fear, and avoid change at all costs. The root of this is based on the fact that I don't want to fail. I build my entire life around failure never being an option, and frankly speaking, I've done a pretty good job. What I'm finally realizing is that sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone to achieve any real goals of substance. I might fail. It's entirely possible. And that will be okay. Right? 

RIGHT?!

2. May's Playlist- 


I really like last month's playlist! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 


3. Amazing Graphic Jumpsuits from NOOWORKS


I don't know about you, but I've really been enjoying the jumpsuit trend! I've always enjoyed a romper, but sometimes it's hard to find vintage or thrifted styles for curvier bodies. In comes a company like NOOWORKS! They have a variety of cuts, styles and go up to size XL (not the best, but better than some companies, right?) The price is high, I won't lie to you. That said,  their company is women-owned, women-run, are made in the USA and use limited edition prints from artists you'll love. That price tag means I won't be buying one anytime soon, but I just might have to save up for one!

4. Over the Garden Wall-


My brother introduced me to Over the Garden Wall at the beginning of the month and I can officially say I'm hooked! It's definitely one of the most beautifully written animated shows I've seen in a long time! I think my favorite episodes are Hard Times at the Huskin' Bee & The Ringing of the Bell (but every episode is amazing)! Enjoy a few pieces of fan art and get thee to the library to check this amazing show out ASAP!

5. Building a Slat Wall for our Upper Patio- 


As mentioned before, we have a long balcony patio off of our master bedroom. In an attempt to break up space and provide a little privacy from the road, I'm thinking a slat wall would be just the ticket. These are a few of my favorite styles!

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!
