In today’s post I’m sharing a few of my favorite things from the past week.

Just like that, another week is over. They always seem to fly by so quickly looking back over the week. I don’t have much planned for the weekend other than a trip to the grocery store to pick up a grocery order and possibly getting together with my boyfriend for a walk. I hope you have something a little more exciting planned for your weekend. As usual for a Friday, I’m writing about some things that I’ve enjoyed this week.

Warmer weather

It feels like spring is on the horizon finally. There’s still a lot of snow on the ground here in Calgary, but I’m really looking forward to longer days, warmer temperatures, and being able to spend more time outdoors.

I went for a walk earlier this week and it felt so good to be outside but without a ton of layers on. It was really nice to be able to feel the sun on my skin. There’s just something about being outdoors that feels especially good after what felt like an extra long winter. I’m sure I’m not the only one who felt like it was a longer than usual and colder than usual winter. When the pandemic being an ongoing concern and Christmas being so different this year because of it, I can’t wait for spring to arrive.


When Superstore arrived on Netflix it was recommended to me by a few different people. I really liked America Ferrera in Ugly Betty and Ben Feldman in Silicon Valley. It took me awhile to try watching it, but I’m so glad that I did. I’m really enjoying it. It’s the perfect length – just 20 minutes – so it doesn’t feel like a big time commitment to put an episode on. The characters are weird and funny. If you’ve every worked retail before, even if it wasn’t at a big box store, I think there will be a lot of relatable moments from the customers to the co-workers. There’s something to be said for shows that don’t require a lot of brain power to enjoy and make you laugh.

The Nightingale

I recently borrowed The Nightingale (affiliate link) by Kristin Hannah from the library. Even though I’m only a few chapters in it’s been hard to put down. It’s historical fiction that focuses on two sisters in France during the second world war. This is my first book by Kristin Hannah that I’ve read. I’ve heard lots of good things about her books online, so I’m excited to finally read a book of hers.

I just finished reading The Room on Rue Amelie by Kristin Harmel, which is another historical fiction book that takes a look at Paris during the same time period. I didn’t realize that they were set in such similar settings when I picked them up from the library.

What are you currently watching on Netflix? Have you read anything by Kristin Hannah?
