Five Things Friday- May 16, 2014

Hey! Happy Friday! I hope you're not waking up to snow today like the folks a little more north and west of my house did this morning! For the love of all things holy, it's the middle of MAY!

Here are the five things I'm loving this week:

1. To do: THIS. I'm so in love with this project and its perfect for me-- I have like 6 different birdcages I bought to house little plants. I hadn't thought of using succulents-- til now!

2. Watching: This. You just gotta keep creating!

3. Totally loving: This coffee machine I bought, inspired by the amazing coffee I had while in Italy. I came home and my keurig just wasn't as tasty anymore....

4. Living:  This website that focuses on eating healthy and removing processed foods from your diet. We've been trying this, and it's definitely NOT easy. We ate so well and felt so good while we were in Italy (nothing has HFCS there!) that we wanted to keep eating well when we arrived home. This website is a good resource.

5. Listening to: This. Good grooves for a Friday morning!

Have a great weekend!!

Do this: I LOVE LOVE LOVE these paper succulents! I can't wait to try this tutorial!

Currently reading: this book about food and food choices. It's excellent and I HIGHLY recommend it. You won't be eating the same way after reading it, I promise.

Interesting article: This article about why we (especially me!) don't get shit done.

Listening to: This. I CANNOT get enough of this song.

Check out: this fun group on flickr. Every week they post a theme and you submit your shots that illustrate the theme. This weeks theme looks fun! I miss the old days of flickr, don't you? If you're on flickr, leave your flickr link in the comments section-- I'd love to connect with you there!

Have a great weekend!

To Do: This super cool DIY from Urban Comfort. I am in LOVE with these leaf bowls! (So, were can I find unique leaves in Chicago-land in the winter?)

Currently reading: This book. (At least it won't make me cry) Has anyone else read it? What did you think?

Interesting articles: This article about 4 ways to make your mind work better. I definitely need to work on sleeping more, and not wasting so much time on the internet....

Currently watching: This TV show. I'm not proud to admit that I'm hooked on a silly tv show (other than Game of Thrones!), but it's really good. The story is interesting and complex and the acting is quite superb.

Currently listening: this CD. It's my most favorite flamenco CD of all time!

  • Calming Manatee- Everyone knows that manatees are the most calming creatures in the animal kingdom.
  • Your idea sucks, now go do it anyway- Newsflash: Your idea probably sucks, and it doesn’t matter because your business will probably turn out to be something completely different.
