Hello, friends! I am feeling quit accomplished. It’s Friday and I managed to post two days in a row! Don’t get too excited, who knows what next week will bring.
Anyway, I thought I would check in today to share with you some of my favorite obsessions. I’m no Oprah, but I’ve got my own set of favorite things that comes with my own stamp of approval. That’s got to count for something, right?
Here’s what I’ve taken a fancy to (and not taken a fancy to) this week:
– The weather
The two questions that are always on my mind when I check the weather are 1., will it get above freezing today? and 2., will there be enough snow to get me out of work? The answer to both questions is usually a big, fat NO and I am left feeling deflated and miserable, counting down the days to spring.

– String cheese
I used to be so disgusted by string cheese, but then I tried the Horizon Organiz Mozz sticks and I was in love. How could I ever complete a Whole 30 challenge, when the best part of my workday is my string cheese snack?
– The song, “Dearly Departed,” by Shakey Graves
Listen to it and don’t even deny that your soul fills with a need to hear it over and over and over again.
– Red velvet oreos
Normally, I’m a purist when it comes to oreos, but this time I made an exception. They paired well with my mozzarella string cheese.
– If the #likeaboy movement wasn’t enough, some Fox News dude had to go and make a completely asinine comment about Frozen. Luckily, this article from the A.V. Club is here to point out the error of his ways: http://www.avclub.com/article/frozen-hurting-boys-self-esteem-fox-host-who-has-o-214796?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=LinkPreview:1:Default
– Shopping for a cause
I can always get behind meaningful retail therapy! As many of you know, Ingrid Michaelson is basically my favorite musician of all time. Sadly, she lost her mother in 2014 to myeloma. We all know that any form of cancer is scary and devastating, so Ingrid is partnering with Alex and Ani to raise money to help those facing that battle. Now through February 6th, 15% of your Alex and Ani purchase goes towards the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. Make sure you use the code “INGRIDMM3” and get shopping!
– Saved by the Bell
I would be shamed to the ends of the earth if I neglected to include this gem.
Happy weekend, friends. Let’s make it count.
