Friday Favorites

I decided that I would like to start doing a recap of my week every Friday or Saturday on here. I am unashamedly stealing this idea from my food blogging friend Kayte over at Grandma's Kitchen Table. I have enjoyed reading her posts and I hope that I will enjoy revisiting some of the items that have happened in my life over the past week.

This picture is of my niece Savannah. She was at my house yesterday and I became concerned when things were just a little too quiet. This is how I found her...not only was the bathroom soaked, but she had bathed herself and her clothes as well. :-)

Reading: I am currently working on three different books depending on what my mood is at the moment.
  • Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert - Yes, I am reading this because the movie is coming out next week. It's a good book so far even though I don't necessarily agree with everything in it.
  • Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts - This is the third book in her Bride Quartet Series. I am loving it so far. I must also note that I got to meet Nora Roberts at the RWA Literacy Autographing that my sister and I went to last week at Disney World. Nora was soooo nice (for a catrillionaire haha).
  • Duchess In Love by Eloisa James - I have never read anything by Eloisa so I wanted to try her out. It's a historical romance (my fav). I am only about 30 pages in but so far it seems promising.
Listening to: My current favorite is the Glee soundtrack. Yes...I am a Gleek.

Cooking: I didn't get a chance to cook too much new this week. I did try out a Key Lime Cake that turned out great. I actually ate out most of the week because my best friend, Elisabeth was in town and I spent a lot of time with her and her kids. Last night I made potato leek soup and that was yummy as always.

Favorite Thing this Week: Getting to hang out with Elisabeth and her kids Tyson and Jenna. I miss them sooo much and I enjoy getting to see them.

Going to: I don't have too many plans for this weekend. I am taking my niece Mady to see Ramona and Beezus today. I am sure that my Sunday afternoon will be filled with couponing and attempting a new recipe.

Praying for: A family at my church just lost their husband/dad this week to ALS. Praying for peace and comfort for them.

Oh, thank you for the shout-out, that was so nice of you. I am just catching up on blogs since Matt's swimming is now in hiatus for this week after the JNats in CA. Love the list of books. Have read Nora Roberts before, but not this series, the other two are new to me. Will pray for your intentions, we lost a dear friend to ALS two years ago and it was just so hard on everyone. Savannah is adorable...even wet and up to a bit of fun!
