Today I’m sharing some of my favorite things from the past week.

Acoustic Hits playlist on Spotify

I listen to a lot of Spotify. Between podcasts, workout playlists at the gym, and listening to music while I’m working on my blog, I use Spotify a few hours each day. This week I discovered a new playlist on Spotify that’s perfect for getting work done at my desk. Acoustic Hits is just the thing for me to have on in the background so that I can down out noise from outside the room so that I don’t get distracted. Other playlists on Spotify that I love are Your Favorite Coffeehouse, Peaceful Piano, and 90’s Rock Anthems. 


I took my dad to a new shawarma restaurant to eat this week. I had been there once before and really liked it, so I thought I’d introduce it to my dad. He went with the beef shawarma plate and I got the chicken one. He officially approved of it, saying that the beef and potatoes were his favorite. 

Cold packs

For the last few days I’ve had a sore back. I’ve had issues with my back before, so I know how miserable it can get. Thankfully it’s not that bad this time, but it’s definitely uncomfortable. I’ve been using cold packs as often as I can to help. The cold helps so much and I think it’s really helping with my tight muscles. I’m hoping that I’m feeling back to normal soon because I’m really missing my cardio workouts. In the meantime I’m very grateful for the cold packs. 

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

I came across this book while browsing my library’s ebook app. When I read the description and found out that it was a continuation of the story from To Kill A Mockingbird, I knew that I had to read it. I’m about a third of the way through so far and I’m really enjoying it. I’ll be sure to share how I liked it once I’m done reading it. 

What’s one of your favorite things from the past week?
