Happy Friday! It’s that time again; linking up with Andrea, etc. right here.

Here are some of my favorites from the week. I hope you had many, too!

After a dreary weekend, we have had some gorgeous sun! I met my friend Victoria at River House and we had a cocktail overlooking the river.

I had sangria.

They give you complimentary cornbread in a little skillet.

This is brie; I don’t like nuts so I asked for the almonds on the side. I love peanuts and pistachios but that is it!

It was great to enjoy some sun and catch up.

I have been enjoying low carb tortilla breakfast burritos this week. This time I added a bit of leftover baked potato – cut a bit of it into diced potatoes. It also has one egg and a very tiny amount of Trader Joe’s light shredded Mexican blend cheese.

I had a library pick up and I browsed the new release shelf while I was there; I can’t believe I found this! I had requested it but I was way down on the wait list. The Reese Witherspoon book picks seem to all be quite good. I cannot put this down – The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave. I have been sitting outside in the afternoons and even after dinner. Told you I am a fair weather reader!

I have two brands that I think are pretty dependable on Amazon – Amazon Essentials and Daily Ritual. I got a two pack of t-shirts to wear under kimonos. These are very lightweight and a really nice material but a bit clingy so I may not be able to wear them with all of my kimonos.

And, this Daily Ritual is not clingy and it is the best material! I want more! It is a very thick material. I bought the pink and it is a gorgeous color.

You know how you always need just basic t-shirts for summer? You all have any recommendations? I think for what I am looking for this may be my holy grail.

Melanie Shankle of Big Mama blog and Big Boo podcast never steers me wrong with her recommendations. I ordered this Old Spice Timber for me and I love it. It isn’t super masculine, but a nice smell.

This is what it looks like. I think my Dad used this when I was little – not this scent but I feel like he had a blue Old Spice deoderant. So, it is a bit sweet and nostalgic for me.

What a random Friday Favorites! I don’t have much this week.

What were your favorites? I would love to hear!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I recently switched to using Old Spice Fiji deodorant. Crazy how most women’s deodorant is made with aluminum and most men’s is not. And it is cheaper–for more! AHHH…the illusive t-shirt. If you find the perfect one–I need to know! I can never find one that I like. Too thin, too clingy, too thick, too loose, got to be a v neck, can’t be “woman shaped” but not boxy. You get it? LOL

    1. I will have to smell the Fiji! Oh yeah, no aluminum was another good thing for me! Pink tax, right? It’s not fair!
      So true – maybe you should try the Daily Ritual. It’s pretty good!


  2. I ordered that book from the library! Look forward to it!
    I agree: basic t-shirts are a must, works with everything! I always buy mine from h&m, they have a great quality at a bargain price (recommendation: I often buy mine from the mens’ department).
    Another favorite is the tv-show Masked singer, I saw that you have an American one too, it’s unexpectedly entertaining!


    1. Yay! I hope you like it! I never shop there. I am afraid men’s would make me look more boxy!
      I have never watched that – not super into all the million singing and talent shows we have!
