Friday Favorites: A Season of Change

I’ve really needed a week like this. Nothing particularly good happened, but it was so much less stressful than the past few months have been, and I am so grateful for that. Anyway, on to the five things that made me smile this week.

/ / One:
Fall TV is back! I am so excited to have a DVR full of my favorite shows.

/ / Two:
I have been reading Attachments: A Novel by Rainbow Rowell, and I really like it so far. I love the characters (Lincoln, an IT guy who is paid to read e-mails at a newspaper and Beth and Jennifer, who write hilarious e-mails to each other), and the writing is so clever! I can’t wait to finish it.

/ / Three:
I am enjoying being my hubby’s travel agent for all of his interviews. While it’s not fun to pay for flights, hotels, and car rentals for all of these interviews (there will be 30 or so), it is so fun to research all of the cities. It’s going to be hard to rank these places when it comes time to do that.

/ / Four:
It has been in the mid 80s all week, and after highs in the mid 90s last week, it has been a welcome change. Unfortunately, it’s supposed to warm up again. I’m just hoping if I keep wishing for fall weather, it will come. That makes sense, right?

/ / Five:
It’s always a good day to post a photo of my Skyler:

  3. Aww what a cute fur baby!!! My little ones were curled up under the blanket too haha. I think they secretly love this weather because they can snuggle up. Good luck to your hubby with his interviews!

    1. Haha, my hubby always says that too! I was asked to be one for a travel agency once, but working on commission sounds scary to me.

    1. Yup, he has to apply to a lot of residency programs because each program only takes 6-10 people. Have a great weekend! :)
