Happy Friday! It’s felt like a long and busy week for me so I’m looking forward to the weekend. I don’t have much planned other than spending some time with my boyfriend, but that sounds perfect to me. It’s been awhile since I’ve last written a Friday favorites post, so I’m excited to share the items below.
New cards in my Etsy store
I don’t share it very much here on the blog, but I have a stationery shop on Etsy. I have everything from notecards to stickers to lined envelopes for sale over there. This week I picked up a few new notecards that I designed. I think my favorite out of the bunch is the flamingo notecard. It’s always exciting to pick up new products from the printers – I’m never totally sure how they’ll turn out. I’m really happy with these ones though.
New library book
I picked up a couple holds this week at the library and The Drowning Kind (affiliate link) by Jennifer McMahon was one of the books waiting for me. I think I’ve read 4 of her both books and I enjoyed them all. Jenifer manages to write books with the perfect mix of mystery, thrills, and paranormal. I’m only a few chapters in so far but I’m enjoying it so far.
Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:
When social worker Jax receives nine missed calls from her older sister, Lexie, she assumes that it’s just another one of her sister’s episodes. Manic and increasingly out of touch with reality, Lexie has pushed Jax away for over a year. But the next day, Lexie is dead: drowned in the pool at their grandmother’s estate. When Jax arrives at the house to go through her sister’s things, she learns that Lexie was researching the history of their family and the property. And as she dives deeper into the research herself, she discovers that the land holds a far darker past than she could have ever imagined.
In 1929, thirty-seven-year-old newlywed Ethel Monroe hopes desperately for a baby. In an effort to distract her, her husband whisks her away on a trip to Vermont, where a natural spring is showcased by the newest and most modern hotel in the Northeast. Once there, Ethel learns that the water is rumored to grant wishes, never suspecting that the spring takes in equal measure to what it gives.
My boyfriend sent me a picture of Elf cereal when he found it while grocery shopping this week. He knows I’m a huge fan of Elf (really who isn’t?!?!). I ended up popping into the grocery store to get a box. I love that it says it includes elves’ favorite food – candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. While I haven’t actually tried any of the cereal yet, I really hope I like it.
I read somewhere that Elf was released 18 years ago this month. It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long. I remember going to see it with friends when I was in university. Apparently it’s been 18 years since I was a university student! It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long though.
I don’t have much planned for the weekend. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be spending some time curled up under a blanket reading The Drowning Kind. Spending some time at my boyfriend’s place will also probably happen as well. I’ve had a busy week with a bunch of appointments, so I’m looking forward to enjoying my down time.
