Fave Five Friday

I’m still recovering this week. I’ve had such a low energy level. I’ve been coming home from work and just zoning out with some Star Trek. It’s been terrible. I can’t wait until I feel better. Collage

  1. 10 Tips to Grow Your Savings – this is such a great read right now – especially if you didn’t win the Powerball this week!
  2. I am always in a rush in the morning, so I’m always on the prowl to find tips and tricks to make my mornings easier – this recipe for easy breakfast muffins caught my attention.
  3. Worst Ex Stories – I couldn’t break away after I found this thread.
  4. Adele rapping Nicki Minaj’s verse in Monster is everything.
  5. I need this sweater.

Fave Friday Five

This week has been pretty shitty. I woke up on Monday morning without a voice and missed four days of work as a consequence. I’m not a huge fan of the doctor, so I knew I was sick when I actually went to the doctor on Tuesday. He sent me off with cough syrup and antibiotics and I’ve been on the couch the rest of the week. I also know I’m really sick because I’ve watched 7 movies — Inside Out, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Swingers, Horns, Chronic-Con Episode 420, Galaxy Quest, and Lovelace.


Enough about this sick week, here’s my Fave Friday Five:

  1. Tips on taking a better selfie – now that I have a working selfie stick and these tips for better selfies, I am prepared to flood instagram with pictures of my lovely mug.
  2. I love everything about Kallie’s post about periods. I relate to every single item.
  3. Not having a niche blog is not the end of the world.
  4. My plan for 2016 is to read 30 books so I love to check out the most anticipated books for 2016.
  5. Making a Murderer – who else watched it? We knocked it out in a few days because we were so obsessed!

Fave Friday Five

This is the beginning to my busiest weekend of the month. Tonight I am seeing The Book of Mormon, tomorrow is Garth Brooks, and then Sunday I have a 5K to “run” (in all reality, I’ll be walking since it has been so long since I’ve ran). And, instead of enjoying my day off before the chaos, I opted to spend the day with my handsome nephew at the Railroad park. Priorities, man.

  1. I am not a morning person, so I love these tips on how to get more out of your mornings by Jen.
  2. Kristin combines my two favorite things – sangria & cider.
  3. A great post & idea from Nicole – a depression tracker.
  4. I’ve been following Kelly’s blog Adulting for a long time now and I just started reading her book – Adulting. I highly suggest it! It gives great suggestions without making you feel like a total failure at life.
  5. Just let me be the crazy aunt that I am and show you my awesome little Peanut:

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Fave Friday Five

I’ve always been wavering on what to call my weekly Friday round-up post. I think I’ve found a winner – who hates alliteration?

Anyway. This has been an absolutely crazy week. I fell super behind on my freelancing projects and was consistently apologizing to my clients. I missed assignments for my writing class. And, I started to feel sick. But, I turn 26 years old tomorrow and I got to spend Thursday with my main man Mike (see what I did there??) for an early celebration. Basically, I have been insanely busy and now I am old.


  1. Rude things you probably don’t know you’re doing. This list hit really close to home. Whoops!
  2. Mike & I are lunch-packing experts, but here are some tips that we didn’t even know.
  3. La Croix’s cran-raspberry gets its own special shout-out this week. This is the most delicious beverage.
  4. I started watching Casual after listening to Michaela Watkins on Maron’s podcast. Anyway – it’s on Hulu and it’s great.
  5. Rejoice New Yorkers! They are planning to phase out Taxi TV’s – which is great. I hated having to watch Jimmy Kimmel when I was trying to think of great tweets.

Have a good weekend! I will try to stop crying before I officially turn 26.

This Week In Links

It’s finally October – my favorite month in the year. Octobers are always super busy and hectic for me. This October is no exception. This October will include: Adam Carolla, Garth Brooks, The Book of Mormon, Halloween, a 5K, Coffeehouse at my sister’s high school, mom’s birthday, and the arrival of my nephew & niece from Hawaii. And that isn’t even all of it!

Even 1995 Kaileigh was excited for October.

So before the craziness of this month hits, let’s enjoy some links from this week:

Links: What I Read This Week

I am so excited for the weekend. I caught a stomach bug this week so I’ve been laid out on the couch for the last few days trying to recover while Mike is out of town on business. I’ve got a few different projects I’m working on so this was definitely a set-back. I’m hoping to use Sunday to catch back up. Hope your week was better than mine.
