good things

Here's where I just share things I like or make me happy because it's Friday and I want to. Here goes.

Wet n Wild 1 Step WonderGel nail color - I'm not a huge beauty product person so when I do paint my nails, the color needs to last for a few days so I don't feel like I totally wasted my time. I grabbed one of these on a Target trip (Stay Classy) and put on a coat or two with just my Orly quick dry top coat over it and it stayed looking good for about four days. For $5, it's way cheaper than a gel manicure. I want to try Coral Support next.

Friday Night Lights Reunion! - Last year, I went to the ATX TV Festival for the Gilmore Girls reunion and they were selling tickets for season six even though no programming was announced. Andrew and I took a chance and bought them, thinking we could sell them if we didn't like any of the shows. Well, it was announced last week that there will be a Friday Night Lights reunion on Panther Field with cast members. TIM RIGGINS AND COACH TAYLOR in the flesh. And Connie Britton's hair. And hopefully Crucifictorious will reunite because Landry is my favorite. The festival also announced a reading of The O.C.'s pilot script which they did last year with Dawson's Creek and it made me cry laugh. I can't wait for a room full of people to yell "Welcome to the OC, bitch!"

Grandma Saracen was there last year and she was as wonderful as you would want her to be.

Friends who just get you - My friends Sarah and Miranda and I used to have text parties to watch The Mindy Project together when it was still on Fox and there was an episode where Mindy said "There is no sunrise so beautiful it's worth waking me up to see it." And I just related so much because there's nothing I like more than sleep so I told super talented Sarah that it should be a print. And then I mostly forgot about it. Until this week, when she delivered by posting a free printable of the quote on her blog. She hand watercolored the background, you guys, so she's an awesome friend and she's talented. I can't wait to see the response this will get when I hang it in my office at work.

Happy Music - Speaking of friends, my friend Bre is doing new music month and she posted about DNCE so I had to go listen to them on Spotify. It's Joe Jonas' band, and also the band who played at the dance contest in Grease Live, and I love them. So far they only have an EP but Cake by the Ocean has been on repeat. I also made a Spotify playlist where I put any song on it that makes me happy, regardless of genre, and listen to it all the time. What are your happy songs?

Books books books - A few months ago, I posted about how you can link Goodreads with Overdrive and see which books your library has. I joined a second library and learned you can link two Overdrive accounts to your Goodreads account. After Show Us Your Books this week with Steph and Jana, I went through and went nuts adding books to both libraries. It really is the coolest thing ever and it's fun to know that there's always a book out there waiting for me. 

This weekend, Andrew and I are celebrating ten years of being together (check out how we met here) with a staycation at a nice hotel (yay points), dinner at our favorite place, and brunch. Then we'll probably come home and clean up cat vomit. Ah, the joys of marriage.

  1. I never paint my nails because the polish chips off 5 minutes later, maybe I need to try this WNW polish. I like my nails painted I just hate them chipped.

  3. You should try the Essie Gel Setter topcoat - seriously, any polish lasts way longer than expected. I've made it 8 days without a CHIP. Amazing.

My husband and I will have been together for 10 years in March, and it's so crazy to think about! The Show Us Your Books linkup is seriously so awesome!
