5 Favorites this Week

It's Friday, my favorite day starting with F. I don't really care too much about Friday the 13th although there was a giant full moon last night, so there's that. I wanted to share with you a couple of my favorite things this week.

FYI, there are affiliate links on some of these items which gets me a few extra pennies.

1. Toms Slippers. I bought a pair of these and I'm completely obsessed. They are so comfortable. I love them because they are warm and they have real bottoms so I can run down to the basement of our building or the mailbox.

2. The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. I might be a little behind on this, but we have watched the first six episodes and we are hooked. I remember being in my 3rd grade classroom watching the verdict get read, but all the details of the case are new to me. It's like my new Making a Murderer. It's so interesting learning about how these things happen and getting so many of the details. The Kardashian kids making a cameo is way weird for me though.

3. Board games. We have been spending more evenings screen free and it's been wonderful. I've already read two books this year, but my favorite has been game night. We have been playing this old school game and this uber nerdy and complicated card game. Plus, we got Scrabble for Christmas this year and we are playing until someone reaches 100,000 points.


4. Our Urban Outfitters cocktail glasses. These ones are on super sale right now and are the same size as our New York ones. We just wanted something like a low ball glass, but a different shape. I might add these ones to our collection next.

5. Last, but not least, I leave you with this picture from our walk late yesterday afternoon. The temps were in the high 60's so we shut our laptops promptly at 4:00 and headed outside. We ended up walking to the East River to catch the sunset and it was perfection. I love winter lots, but it is nice to have a surprise warm day every few weeks to recharge.


Happy weekending everyone. Hope you have something fun planned. Mine includes a birthday celebration, dog grooming, reading lots and some more OJ watching. Tell me what you're up to.


  1. I am obsessed with my Toms slippers. Worth every cent. I actually need to give mine a bath. I have the black plaid.

    I love winter skies the best, I think, and it's awesome to see them in warm weather. LOL

  2. I LOVE my Toms! so comfy

    I have yet to watch OJ..it's queued up but first I need to finish my book (amazing!).

  3. Mastermind! Love that game & your glasses & the sale ones you linked. People vs. OJ is on our list to watch soon-- we're still finishing up season 2 of American Crime, which is soo good if you haven't seen it yet. Yesterday being so warm was weird, but amazing- you got such an awesome shot!

  4. i really want some toms slippers. maybe for my birthday :) the nerdy card game sounds so fun, might have to keep that in mind for KC's birthday. less screen time sounds awesome. KC and I read a lot, but we probably spend more time on computers. that sunset is gorgeous! we've had warm weather here, but all rain. boo.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
