Five on Friday, October 2nd

It’s been a rainy week around here, with lots of lazy Netflix nights and I don’t hate it. Although it is a bit sad to miss a whole week of the best weather that Western NC has to offer!

I like joining in the Five on Friday, it’s nice to recap my top 5 favorite moments from the week. They say that listing what you’re grateful for reduces stress and increases happiness. That’s reason enough for me!

Coffee! I am a very clumsy person and broke our french press in an epic explosion of grounds a few weeks ago. I’ve been resisting purchasing a new one and finally broke down this week, using a Bad Bath and Beyond 20% off coupon, because…is there any other way? Hooray for delicious coffee again! We got this one in the 12 cup size because we drink a lot of coffee in my house, and 8 cups just don’t cut it.

Sylvan Esso played at Highland Brewing on Monday, and it was such a good show! We missed seeing them in Raleigh this summer and were able to snag tickets before the show sold out. They played the outdoor stage and the rain actually held off all night. If you haven’t heard their songs Coffee or Play It Right…get on that.

In my old age (nearing 30, y’all, this is real) I am joining my sister and mother in the dizzy/vertigo world. As a kid, I always got car sick. Once, my super-styling grandmother, Nana, didn’t believe me and I ended up decorating the inside of her car…with my puke. Those Tennessee mountain roads don’t joke. Next time we head out on a road trip I am trying this sucker out. Thanks to Mari for sending me an acupressure bracelet to try out!

I had a nice little coffee + donut date with myself last weekend, and it was fun! It’s funny what you notice when you’re alone and not distracted. Solo time is super important to me. It can be hard to figure out if you live with your partner, but taking time alone, even just to read or take a bath is essential!

Had my own little throwback Thursday last night, god I forget how much I love 10 Things I Hate About You. Normally I am far too ADD to watch movies, but this one gets me every time.

Hell is just a sauna.

Happy weekend, y’all!

    Hahahaha – that movie cracks me up!I love our french press, but I don't use it near enough. The coffee tastes so much better when I do!
