Friday Favorites {living outside the stacks}

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope y’all had a great week. Mine was exhausting. I go through bouts of insomnia, where I start to exist on about 3 or 4 hours of sleep per night and then after a week or so, my body just crashes. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. It’s because I have a hard time turning off my brain…

Do you have that problem too? How do you deal?

Have you read this post by Debbie at Fashion Fairy Dust? She shared some links to childhood memories and oh my word I couldn’t stop giggling. Kids today have no idea what they’re missing. Peeled dried glue from my palm? Sniffed freshly photocopied papers? Did it.

Did you see my Style Imitating Art post this week? My cohosts and I would love to have you join us. It’s really fun… I mean, I’ve learned so much about art and looking at the clothes in my closet differently. You can read all about the linkup here.

I’m not a big catfish fan, but my daughter and I went to Outlaws here in Alexandria and *insert eye roll*  the catfish was delicious! Usually, I think it tastes kind of slimy, but this was cooked just right. We also had Pecan Pie Cupcakes – they were pretty delicious too.

So we’re putting the painting of the house on hold for a year. I’m kind of bummed, but I hadn’t really settled on a color anyway. But I did find the most amusing little website that helps you pick your color personality. Here’s mine:

Funny, those are pretty much the colors I use on my blog as well as the colors in my home. So I’d say it’s pretty accurate.

I don’t have any plans for this weekend, so I’m thinking I’m finally start reading one of the many books that I have on my TBR shelf. I’m actually thinking about starting this novel by Tatiana De Rosnay. I’ve read several of her other books and, y’all, Sarah’s Key still gets me teary eyed. You can read my review here.


Friday Favorites is a weekly linkup hosted by A Little Bit of Everything, Grace and Love, and Momfessionals. It’s a fun way to wrap up the week and share some of the things that grabbed our attention during the week.
