Hey there! Happy Friday! What’s on your weekend agenda? I’ll be reading, baking, writing, and relaxing, and I’m excited. Also, I think the weather is supposed to be nice, so that’s awesome after so much gray-ness and blustery rainy weather. Like, I could sit outside and do my reading. What a concept. What are you up to this weekend? I’d love to hear about it! But before we get to that, let’s take a look at some of our favorites from the week. Sound good? Let’d do it.
Grace and Frankie
Meet my latest Netflix obsession. Remember how I was a little embarrassed of my love for Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce? Well, I’m a little embarrassed about this one, too. But it’s so funny and heartwarming. Basic premise: two families very close to each other get their lives turned upside down when it turns out that the two husbands are in love with each other. The focus is on the wives, uptight Grace and hippie-dippy Frankie, but you get lots of their ex-husbands and their kids, and I just find it fun. We all need fun shows. Highly recommend. Plus, the episodes are short, so it doesn’t feel like watching it is a huge time commitment.
I bought some cheap, overripe bananas last weekend because I wanted to bake banana something. What happened were these fluffy chocolate chip muffins. I’ve been eating them all week and I need to find more icky bananas this weekend because I want more.
P.S. That is the best my nails have looked after taking off a gel manicure in ages. Usually they’re horribly roughed up for at least two weeks and basically only my thumbs have slight scuff marks. Very proud of my peeling skills. And very ready to paint my nails again.
The Magic Weighted Blanket
A few weeks ago, I extolled the virtues of the magic weighted blanket my mom got in my Instagram stories. She then gave it to me. She was willing to wait a couple more weeks to get another one for herself (they take forever to ship), just so I could have it to take back to school with me. THE NICENESS.
Anyway, to recap: this is a big blanket that feels like a hug. Mine is the chocolate dot minky blanket and it weighs about 15 pounds. Putting it on just relaxes me.
My cilantro plant
When my dad and I were grocery shopping before I came back to school, I wanted cilantro (because I put it on lots of things). A plant caught my eye, so instead of getting a bunch of cilantro, I got my own cilantro plant. One of my roommate’s friends had already given me a basil plant, so I figured why not keep two things alive?
Well, the cilantro plant is the winner because the basil plant pretty much died over spring break. We gave it access to water and semi-light, but it is now shriveled and it’s unclear why. The cilantro plant is alive and well, and it’s pretty awesome to be able to just walk over to the window and pull off some leaves for dinner.
And with that, I’m off to class and onto my weekend. I’ll talk to you next week!
