My original variation of Five Things Friday was born out of my desire to include more of ME on my blog. I started out mixing it up and writing about a new topic each week. Well, as I’ve done in the past, I’ve decided it’s time to change things up a little bit. My new format (for now, anyhow) is to use this feature as a type of mini weekly recap. (Shout out to Brandie for the idea!)
NEW TO MY QUEUE
FAVORITE BOOK OF THE WEEK
I’ve read some amazing books over the last few days and it was really tough to pick a favorite. After some mental kicking and screaming, I decided on Called Out. This is easily my favorite book in Jen’s Called Up series. It was sweet and funny and sexy and swoony AF.
WHEN I WASN’T READING
Last week started off fairly strong, with a short day on Friday and a trip to Great Falls State Park in Virginia on Saturday. I got to do a little bit of hiking and enjoyed taking photos of the falls. I thoroughly enjoyed being outside because it was a lovely, if humid, day. Sunday morning was good. I went to another nearby park that I’d never visited before and enjoyed the waterfront view and my book. Then… I got hit with either the stomach flu or food poisoning. I’m not sure which it was. It knocked me on my ass, however. I ended up sleeping most of Sunday afternoon and then relaxing and recovering on Monday and Tuesday as well. I don’t recommend whatever it was I had.
PIC OF THE WEEK
Yeah, you get a cat photo this week. It was a toss up between this and one of the photos from my hike last weekend, but these kitties are so cute I can’t NOT post the photo. Look at the way C.A.T. is hugging Punkin’s belly. *heart eyes*
I leave for Pittsburgh for a work conference on Monday! I don’t usually get excited about work conferences, but I do love Pittsburgh, so it’ll be nice to be there for a few days. Also, I’ll be extending my trip into a long weekend with my folks. I’m looking forward to what the weekend will bring!
How was your week?
