Friday/Monday FAVORITES!

Monday, February 4, 2019

Happy Monday!!!

I hope everyone had a warm weekend because I sure did!  The weather here was spectacular (think high 60s and sunny) so I'm going to be so sad when it gets cold and gloomy again.  Hurry, spring!

Since I enjoyed my Thursday night by hanging out with friends and finishing The Great Alone, I didn't get my Friday Faves post up.  So here we are on a Monday with a post reserved for Fridays....maybe this will make the weekend get here faster?!

 Saturday morning I went for a 2 mile run in a tank top (!!!) and my new running tights.  I'm still working to build up my running back to what it used to be when I used to "go out and run a quick and easy 3 mile run" ๐Ÿ˜”  It's been harder than I expected because 1. I'm very competitive with myself and am always wanting to improve on my pace which is hard when you're trying to get back in the game and 2. our neighborhood has some really terrible hills which make me tired.
**Also notice Dustin's clothes in the background on his dresser.....UGHHHH

I took pictures of two books that I want to eventually buy and read...
 I loved Their Eyes Were Watching God, so I assume I'll like almost anything Zora Neale Hurston writes.  This book looks super interesting because the man pictured (can't remember his name) lived in Alabama and tells Hurston his story.  Oh, and now that I'm typing this, I think his name is Barracoon ha!

This was in the school reading list section and one I haven't read yet.  I always find these sections so interesting.  

Random, but this title makes me think of As I Lay Dying which is maybe my favorite Faulkner novel.  If you haven't read it, you should!

Y'all know how much I love Meghan Markle.  It's borderline embarrassing ๐Ÿ˜‚  I came across this short video clip and thought it was so cute!

Have a great Monday!!


  1. I love that clip of MM! And I love the rain in the tank top girl! Have the best week ahead!

  2. Just reading 'quick and easy 3 mile run' makes my stomach hurt, haha! I can't fathom ever thinking that, haha! But you will get there - especially with extra motivation from those cute work out clothes!

  3. Really loving your leggings - such a great color! Hope you had a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Oh I love that video of the Dutchess. I recently saw her carrying the same purse as me and I was super excited that we have the same purse. haha Happy Monday!

  5. Those leggings are a fun design and color! Perfect for the start of Spring! Have a great week!

  6. I love those leggings and tank top. Cute workout clothes makes me more motivated than anything else...hahaha! I love that color of the tank. Have a great start to your week!

  7. I haven't read the first suggestion, so I'll check it out and I need to reread the second recommendation. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I love love those running tights! I just love cute workout clothes in general.

  9. I love MM, too! And I laughed when I read the part about Dustin's clothes... B drives me nuts leaving his socks by his side of the bed. The other day I grabbed four pairs of socks to put in the laundry. FOUR. Why can't you just put them in the hamper?! Lol.

  10. Way to go with getting back into running! Thanks for linking up with Hello Monday - have a wonderful week!

  11. I love how much you love Meghan Markle! Do you think she's having a boy or a girl?!

  12. I always take pics of books I want to read, too! It makes it easier to remember titles to request at the library!
    Ahh you're making me want to grab some of those tights from Athleta! They had a black and white striped pair on sale for $29 and I think I need them.

  13. Keep running the hills, that is the best way to build your endurance back up! :)

  14. I have tried running, again and again, I admire anyone who has been able to stick it out, so give yourself A LOT of credit ♥ I am a great speed walker, lol.
