I had another post planned for today but then I remembered that it was Kristen’s link up day and how could I not link up with Kristen?! Duh!
Listening: I have been heavily relying on my rock playlist on Spotify. Some of my most favorite songs ever are on this list, songs like Far Behind from Candlebox. This is a roll your windows down on a chill day and turn it up on repeat kind of song.

Reading: The Girl from Summer Hill – It is basically retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I don’t hate it, but it isn’t mind blowing either. I am about 40% through and hoping to finish it up this weekend so I can have the review for you during the book link up next week!
The Girl from Summer Hill (Summer Hill, #1)
Watching: Life in Pieces and Good Wife. Life in Pieces cracks me up and I really like how it is four short stories in each episode. The Good Wife is wrapping up and it makes me sad to see it go. I have really enjoyed that show!
Eating: All the bad things. Oops. Yesterday I might have left after I ate my healthyish lunch to go to Walgreens down the street from my office and pick up a bag of these because it was an emergency. Whatever, my day got more tolerable because of them.
Sour Punch Bites
Wearing: All of the dresses and sandals!!!Β The weather has decided to stay in the 70’s and 80’s down here now so I have been wearing the crap out of all my favorite dresses from last year. Can’t stop won’t stop.

    I bet you’re so excited for your July vacation just like we are! I had to smile at that quote about raising your voice because I had to tell a colleague to lower her voice this week, ha ha! Just thinking about it makes me want to eat a banana bread donut! Hope you have a terrific Thursday!

    I’m so sad Good Wife is ending, I hate when my favorites end! And I heard it might not be a complete wrap up like I’m wanting. The actress that plays Alicia said fans will either love it or hate it!

    We’ve had 70’s and 80’s too but now it’s cold today and supposed to be cool again tomorrow. I’m mad I want to put my shorts back on!!

    I keep forgetting about Life in Pieces. Is it like Modern Family? It looks like it would be funny.

    Love the Rumi quote. He always has the best quotes. And those donuts. Yum. And gimme.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native May 5, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    I WANT THOSE DONUTS! I’ve never heard of Life in Pieces but now I feel like I need to watch it. The weather here keeps switching from sunny and nice to cloudy and gross and I just need it to stay nice!!! It’s not fair being able to dress spring/summer-y part of the week and then fall-y the other part!

  • Reply Jenna May 5, 2016 at 3:09 pm

    I need those donuts in my mouth.

  • Reply laura May 5, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    DOUGHNUTS!!!!!!!!!!! Those things look delicious — but I think I’m too lazy to actually make my own. Also that RUMI quote — definitely. I’m definitely excited for guac and margaritas tonight! whoop!

    First of all, banana bread donuts – whaaaaaaaaaat?! Those sound amazing.

    Secondly, I hear the Life in Pieces is pretty dang hilarious. I may have to check it out some time soon. πŸ™‚

  • Reply Lindsay May 5, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    I busted out laughing at the first picture… I don’t know why. Um, I love Candlebox and that is an amazing song! I’m glad I’m not alone in eating all of the bad things… some weeks (or months) are just tough, right? Enjoy your girls night!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family May 5, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    Ooh that’s right! I forgot about Life in Pieces! I need to check that show out!

  • Reply Kristen May 5, 2016 at 8:20 pm

    I love the song “Cover Me” by Candlebox. I haven’t listened to it in such a long time, but you’ve inspired me to put it on. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been eating so much bad shit these last couple of months, but it’s hard to say no when it tastes so good.

    Speaking of … Those banana bread donuts look amazing. I’ve been craving donuts a lot lately, so I did not need to see those! Haha.

  • Reply texerinsydney May 6, 2016 at 2:31 am

    Yep. Showing my age again, but……. Candlebox and Far Behind reminds me of freshman year college and singing at the top of my lungs with the sunroof open. Dresses + sandals…that is pretty much my daily uniform.

  • Reply May 6, 2016 at 6:51 am

    girl, you just took it back with some Candlebox!! haven’t heard them in years!

  • Reply Katie May 7, 2016 at 9:14 am

    Ah so jealous of your warm weather!! I can’t wait for dress season. Those banana bread donuts look SOOO good, I’m currently baking some “healthy” banana bread right now, but those donuts look so much better. I hope you had a fun girls night!
