summer madness countdown in 3..2..1..!

What a week, what a week! I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and Memorial Day!

This weekend kicks off the start of a lot of craziness and adventure for me- it starts slow with an alumnae Picnic in the Park tomorrow followed by helping my mother babysit my two adorable nephews. Then we really launch into crazy!! Anyways.. to the favorites!

Favorite Snack:
  Occasionally I have to work later hours, until 10/11 pm and I always crave something sweet. Cute these delicious barkThins. I've only tried the Dark Chocolate Almond flavor so far but one chunk of it cures me for the night and is oh so tasty!!

Favorite Book:


Well I finished Under the Banner of Heaven which was a little crazy and very interesting. But my favorite book this week was The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. Which is basically about how the smallest decisions in our lives can impact and change them forever. It was really good, I may have read all of the authors books at this point (but I hope not!) and they are all wonderful!

Favorite Store:

I've totally been digging Athleta this week/month/forever. I think they quality of their workout clothes are just as amazing, if not better than Lululemon, and you actually have the option of trying them during a workout and if you don't like them you can return them. I feel they cater towards every woman, not just the skinny and the clothes fit well, do what they say and make me feel comfortable in my own skin. I've dropped way too much money there the last few years and yet not enough.

Favorite Show:

Game of Thrones, for sure. I literally have 20 minutes left of Season 4 and then I can start the current Season 5.. #plansfortheweekend

Favorite Song:
I know I post these way too often but the show is soooo good, and the music even better. It also might have to do with the fact that I finally watched the finale this week. I've got Nashville on my brain!

  1. I don't watch Nashville (sorry!), but assumed that "Fade Into You" was going to be a cover of the Mazzy Star song (which I love). Pleasantly surprised by a whole new song!

  2. Those bark thins sound delicious! I get a bit of a sweet tooth late at night but don't want to overindulge. I may need to check these out! Yum.

  3. Unfortunately I do not know the Mazzy Star song- will have to check it out! The best part of Nashville is the music, all the songs are originals to the show! (and so fantastic!)

  4. My thoughts exactly! And these are perfect, just enough sweet to get rid of the craving but nothing crazy that will make your stomach hurt or make you feel bad for indulging. I found them at Whole Foods, but I'm sure they are sold elsewhere!

  5. I've never been to Alethea, but I've heard about iit and would like to try!
