Friday Favorites and Life Lately...

The world's most skeptical owl from yesterday's trip to the National Aviary.
Happy Friday the 13th! How can it possibly be the 13th of July already? This month is flying by at an alarming rate. What a weird week this was, we're having some car trouble, so not being as mobile has definitely put a damper on our activity level, plus we're laying low in anticipation of going north. Trying to save our pennies in preparation of eating our way through New England (Friendly Toast, prepare yourself).

This week I am:

Listening to:
Really loving the whole Pizza Tapes album, it's a little more...bluesy, than what you would first expect from a member of the Grateful Dead, and that's why I love it. It's the perfect soundtrack for working from home and doing things around the house.

Reading:
I honestly didn't read much this week, but I'm really looking forward to checking out some of the recommendations left in the comments section of last week's post. And I want to check out all of these recommendations from the ModCloth blog. Not that it really counts as reading, but I picked up a copy of Women's Health last week, and that's honestly where my attention has been going. I like reading it every now and then for workout inspiration. It's a great way to add something new to a tired routine. Kettlebells are where it's at this week.

Anticipating:
A couple days off to clear my head and clean out my house (last weekend was completely unproductive).

Coveting:
 Right Pack At You Floral Print Backpack  - Click Image to Close
This floral backpack from Lulu's would be perfect for hikes.
This sweet spotty top from Spotted Moth.

These handmade leather flats from BaliELF.

Yeah, Pizza Tapes!

If you are digging the Dead lately, you must listen to their show from Barton Hall 1977 if you haven't already.

Crazy good show at the top of their game.
