13 Nov Friday Faves | “Right Now” Edition
I seem to be notorious for getting into a groove with my obsessions. For a few weeks at a time, I’m completely absorbed by my latest extra-curricular activities. Then I’ll find something else and move on. It’s hard to play favorites, but I seem to have so many! They change all the time, though, so I like to call them my “right now” favorites. Continue reading to learn about a few of mine this month!
My Right Now Favorite TV Show.
Vampire Diaries. I know, I know! This one is so not me. But I blame it all on the kids! They’ll come in from school, turn on the TV, and I catch a little here and there. Before I know it, I have to run out the door, and I’m left wondering if Elena chooses Stefan or Damon (I’m on team Damon if you’re curious). So, yeah. I’ve been binge watching it on Netflix while I edit. There are 6 seasons, so it’s great for that! Keeps me busy while I look at hundreds of photos.
My Right Now Favorite Book
Well, this one is really a series. I stumbled upon Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache novels by accident, and I’m hooked! I love that she’s a woman writer, but her main character is a man. I’m no writer, but it seems like it would be difficult to get inside the head of the opposite gender. She does it with ease! She writes with such insight and clarity that you’d never know. I love books that are highly character driven, and I feel like the inhabitants of Three Pines are my actual neighbors. One side effect: these books always make me hungry! She describes meals in such exquisite detail that I’m always wanting to rush right out for wine and a baguette spread with brie. I’m on Bury Your Dead now, the sixth one in the series.
My Right Now Favorite Cocktail
When I’m not drinking wine with my cheese and charcuterie, I’m enjoying a Moscow (or Memphis!) Mule. I always have my go-to (Grey Goose and tonic with a lime), but when I’m in the mood for something different, this drink is perfect! I have to admit, it’s the copper cups that get me every time. We first learned about this drink during Michelle and Joe’s engagement session, but have since learned how to make, and perfect, our own recipe!
My Right Now Favorite Restaurant
This is a tough one. I’m so not picky when it comes to food! But sticking to the wine and cheese theme, I think I’d have to go with Bari, at least right now. Ed and I love midtown, and Bari has the best cheese. You don’t even have to know anything about cheeses to order it. They will put together a plate for you, and I LOVE that! Ed and I love to go to Overton Square, grab some wine and a variety of cheeses at Bari, then maybe spend an hour or two at the Zebra Lounge listening to some piano tunes. That actually sounds excellent right now, and we happen to have the weekend free (for the first time in 6 weeks!). I think I’ll go give Ed the hint 😉
What are some things you’re loving right now? Let me know in the comments! I obviously need some new suggestions for TV shows!
In the meantime… Cheers!
