cheers for the weekend!

Can I just say that having a job where I actually get holidays off is just about the most amazing thing- it's a perk so easily taken for granted and I now appreciate even more. That being said- hooray for a four-day weekend!

On to the favorites of the week...

Favorite Meal:

Last night I made lamb chops all by myself and they were delicious and so so so easy. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures #badblogger. But you put a rack of lamb chops in a ziploc bag, cover with avocado oil, salt and oregano and let for at least 10 minutes up to a couple of hours. I then turned on a convection oven to 450. When hot, put the chops in (covering the bone with foil) 15 minutes on each side. voila dinner is served!

Favorite Book:

This is a tough one, I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell which was super cute and I loved the whole fanfiction aspect of it, because I myself am a reader of Harry Potter fanfiction and my favorites are the Harry/Draco ships. I also really really enjoyed My Sunshine Away as well though by M.O Walsh which tells the story of young boy/teen living in Louisiana the assault of his child hood crush. It's obviously a little heavier but really talked and pushed on that young boys, like girls, explore feelings and their sexual aspect but are then punished and embarrassed over them. I'm also currently reading Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer and am learning a lot of Mormons.

Favorite Show:

My roommates and I started watching The Blacklist a few nights ago and now I'm hooked. I also finally started watching season four of GoT, I know I'm way behind. Although with how social media is reacting to the last few episodes of season five I'm not sure how much longer I will be a fan of the TV show going in its own direction...
Favorite Purchase:

I bought a memory foam off of RueLaLa and it arrived this week. I immediately put it on my bed and woah I've been missing out in my life. Seriously have slept like a baby the last few nights...

Favorite Song:

Happy Friday!

  1. I've never made lamb chops because I assumed they'd be tricky and time-intense, but your version sounds easy and awesome. Trying!

  2. yes! I used to think the same thing- and then I found this recipe and my mind was blown. So easy, simple and super delicious! And honestly we just bought a few racks from Costco and keep them in the freezer now, they defrost super quick and are a lot cheaper!

  3. I love Blacklist! I just want answers! I just want to know if Red is good or bad and if he's Liz's father. I just want to decide if I like Tom! Every episode I'm on the edge of my seat.

  4. Seriously! We are now only 6 episodes in and I'm totally hooked. So many questions and not enough answers!!
