Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! Oh, how I love this day. Let’s get right into my Friday Favorites!

F Scott. Fitzgerald

The beauty and honesty in F Scott. Fitzgerald’s words gives me shivers! He has always been one of my all time favorite authors, ever since I read The Great Gatsby. Today, he is one of my Friday Favorites. But, in reality, he’s my everyday favorite. Here are two of my favorite quotes.

Quote 1

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.”

Beauty is within. Beauty comes from you heart, soul, words and ability to bring happiness to others. This quote sums up many of my beliefs in beauty and kindness, which is why it is one of my all time favorites.

Quote 2

“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest and most beautiful person I have ever known – and even that is an understatement.”

Shivers, right? This quote just speaks for itself. I remember sending this to Nic two years ago. Since then, it’s been one of my favorites.

Emily Giffin

Ok, I promise Friday isn’t all about authors and books! I just went to Target and bought her new book, First Comes Love. I have never been disappointed by any of her work. As you may remember from last Friday, I was finishing up Something Borrowed (for the second time)! First Comes Love is already exceeding my expectations. I love finding an author whose books never disappoint.

Coconut Milk

A few months ago, I developed a lactose intolerance, which wasn’t a huge surprise because I was lactose intolerant when I was younger. I’ve always hated milk (I really do wish I liked it) so drinking milk was never an issue. However, I wanted to start teaching myself to drink soy milk, I mean calcium is good after all. Today, I tried the new Starbucks drink with coconut milk. YUM! I went to buy a carton of coconut milk, and it is a lactose free delight!

Run

Yes, of course I went running again today. It was 60 degrees and perfect running weather. I was extra excited today because I ordered new running shoes from Nike and I felt like I was running on a cloud! They were so light and provided a lot of support for my ankles. Definitely a good buy! And listening to 60’s music made my run that much better, too. 🙂

The Temptations“I’ve got sunshine, on a cloudy day!” 

Today was all about The Temptations (and it actually was cloudy). Last weekend, Nic and I went cruising through the countryside listening to My Girl by The Temptations. The word dreamy is an understatement. After our ride, they’re all I’ve been listening too, especially today. 🙂
