Five for Friday #30

Hello and happy Friday! Here we are in December already and it’s time for more of my favorite things.


1 – Speaking of my favorite things… this rendition from Leslie Odom Jr. (he plays Aaron Burr in Hamilton!!!!!!!!) is amazing and I listened to it about 19 times at work the day it came out. His entire Christmas cd is incredible, and you should give it a listen.

2 – I made a pie entirely from scratch for the first time (it was delicious!) and I tried to make a lattice crust on top. Mine didn’t look nearly as good, but here’s an easy way to do it.


3 – GILMORE GIRLS GILMORE GIRLS GILMORE GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you watched A Year In The Life yet?!?!?!? I watched it all in 1 day (it’s 6 hours so totally doable for a weekend… I just couldn’t wait to finish it!) and I LOVED IT!!! I made notes while I watched, so I’ll post those later I’m sure… but ugh it made my heart so happy to have the gang back together!


4 – This is the best popcorn ever. I’m obsessed. And it’s always sold out, so I guess the secret is out. Try it. Trust me.


5 – I stumbled across this movie on Netflix and watched it on a whim- and I loved it. A simple story, really just 2 characters, and an ending that maybe some people won’t like (it’s an indie movie, so watch accordingly) but I really did. AND the couple in the movie is married in real life, so that made me smile!


I’m glad the weekend is finally almost here! I am going to a birthday dinner for a friend, I’m going to finish decorating for Christmas, and yeah, I might just re-watch Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life (or have it on in the background.) I want to get my tree up ASAP so I can put all my gifts underneath! I finished Christmas shopping this week and now I just need to wrap everything and put it all under the tree until the 25th!

  1. Man…I loved the revival too. It felt just like old times. And those last four words 🙂 The only thing I wanted more of was Jess (#TeamJessForLife) and Sookie, but I thought it was the best revival I’ve seen to date. Nostalgic but not cheesy. Slow paced but still engaging. And ugh…I’m sad it’s over.
