Happy (snowy?!?!?!) Friday, everyone!
And I’m about to crawl into a ball under my desk and cry.
Yes, it’s only a dusting of the fluffy white stuff, and it will probably be gone by noon, BUT IT’S STILL SUMMER!!! It’s not supposed to snow WHEN IT’S STILL SUMMER!!!!
On the bright side (because I always try to find a silver lining, even when the lining is dusted with SNOW), it gave me a chance last night to break out my crockpot for the first time in a good while to make some delicioso white-chicken chili AND I got to wear my new looks-almost-like-real-leather-and-is-so-super-cute-jacket to work today. So I guess this chilly precipitation surprise wasn’t ALL bad (just some of the bad).
In other non-snow related news, I still, STILL haven’t heard back from the school I interviewed with for that Librarian position, and I’m still, STILL going bonkers over not knowing, but I still, STILL have faith that everything will work out. And no news is good news, right?
I actually had another interview for a position at a public library this past Tuesday and have another one for another position at another public library this coming Monday. The interviews really seem to be coming in now which is soooooo incredibly exciting! I just hope that one of them sticks.
But like my grandma always said, you can’t spend your time worrying about something that is out of your control. So, I’m going to put on my big-girl-non-worrying panties and I’m going to have one heck of a weekend! Tomorrow I’m going to watch one of my friends kick some bootay at his la crosse game and then on Sunday, I’ll be cheeseheading on over to one of Denver’s most famous Packer bars, Swanky’s (yes, I said Green Bay Packers bar IN DENVER–they are America’s team, after all) with a friend to hopefully see them kick some bootay as well. And you know I’m all about
that bass those cheesecurds.
I hope that you guys have an amazing snow-free weekend full of fun and hijinks and in the mean time, feel free to check out my favorite finds from around the web and more in the week’s edition of Friday Fav’s 🙂
Favorite indulge: 7 Layer Cookies a la Mode. Are you KIDDING me! I think one bite of this luscious, indulgent dessert would send me straight into a blissful sugar coma!
Favorite funky fashion find: Library card socks?! Check these out (pun intended). Sooooo super cute, right?! I spend way too many hours on the Out of Print website, drooling over their booknerd clothing and accessories and have probably spent way tooo much moola stocking my closet with all of their amazing booknerd clothing and accessories, but can you blame me? Plus, it’s a librarian’s prerogative 😉
Favorite pooch: I think I can, I think I can…just one more step. Adorbs.
Favorite slurp: Crock Pot Minestrone Soup. Hearty, flavorful, AND made in a crock pot. Perfect on those, ahem, snowy September days. What’s not to love?
Favorite find (maybe ever): Pinstrosity. I have been in the weirdest mood this week – laughing like an insane person at things I would normally just maybe chuckle at (case in point – I laughed ’til I cried watching Jimmy Fallon YouTube videos this week at work, which isn’t that hard to do in all actuality. I think this whole waiting this is getting the best of me.) Anyways, that said, I laughed at this website, where people submit failed attempts at projects or recipes found on Pinterest, until I could no longer breathe. Maybe it’s really not that funny, but I think it is. Wait ’til you get to the stacked children photo attempt. JUST WAIT.
Favorite funny. See above re: weird mood. I just thought this was absolutely hilarious. Rebel baby polar bear – whee!
Favorite wake-me-up: French Toast Dumplings. I cannot imagine how insane these gooey, sweet dumplings taste. Holy cow!
Favorite place: Edinburgh Castle, Scotland. Seriously the coolest.
Favorite tip: How To Style a Bookcase. Seems so simple, but yes, I DO need a tutorial for this kind of thing!
And I have to end on a sweet note….
Favorite sweet: White Chocolate Brownies. Cannot get over the gooey factor. These look like they’d melt in your mouth!
