cleo judging

[Cleo. She just sits around and stares at me. All day. Every day. Judging.] [She’s still one of my favorites though.]

Friday! I’m in a serious state of TGIF today after, quite honestly, a pretty rough week. Rough weeks call for focusing on all of the GOOD things in life though so I thought a current Friday Favorites edition was needed.

Here are some of my favorites from the week…

Moment this week: feeling SO MUCH LOVE from family & friends. Also? Precious moments with my husband. So, so grateful for him and our relationship. We’ll be celebrating 4 years of marriage next week!

Blog post: You do your thing. I’ll do my thing. MMkay?: A Pizza Lesson by Taylor DuVall. For one, I am a fan of anything Taylor writes, but this post? I wanted to “amen” the whole thing. The analogy is perfect.

“Simply because I do not like something, does not mean you should not do that something. Simply because I do something one way, does not mean that I think you shouldn’t do that something in a different way.”At the end of the day, no matter the toppings, we are all just pizza.”

Song: ALL OF THE SONGS on Foy Vance’s new album, The Wild Swan. I went to share my favorite one with you guys and found myself picking out three, then four, then five songs… I stopped there and decided to just make mention of the entire thing. (A few of my faves though: She Burns, Bangor Town, and Coco.) Seriously though. All of them. Just buy the album.

EO: I am an EOEOE (equal opportunity essential oil employer) (I know. That was totally lame.) and use both Young Living and doTERRA oils (although YL tends to be my go-to) and lately am loving YL’s Sara. A blend of: Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lavender, Orange, Blue Tansy, Cedarwood, Rose, and White Lotus. It is SO calming!

Funny: Watching Blake Shelton try sushi for the first time = hilarious. (Although most of my laughter was due to Jimmy Fallon being AMAZING, as always.)


Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Love that picture of Cleo. I’ve got two that do the same thing and we found a print of a cat that states “I’m silently judging you.” Life with cats!! 🙂 Hope it’s a great weekend for you.

  • Jimmy Fallon is the cutest. I really want to be his best friend. I think I’d fit in well with him and JT 🙂 Have a great weekend, Emily!

    I love the sentiment of that pizza quote. It is SO true! I’ve met people who DO think that everything they do is the right way and should be done that way. I’ve distanced myself from those people. I loved watching Blake and Jimmy try sushi! Hilarious!

    • oh girl. Yes. And what do you do when you can’t distance yourself from those peeps?! I’ve learned to just bite my tongue… which is not always easy! 😉

  • Holly

    Oh, Cleo! Give your mom a break! Maybe just a side eye every now and then! 😉

  • I just want to come over, curl on your sofa, sit and chat with you sometime. Okay? Great thanks.

    • Yes, please! How much fun would that be?! (But only if I can then come and sit on your back porch and chat. K?)
