My Friday Favorites 07.22.16

Happy Friday! I hope today is the start of a great weekend for you and yours.
Here are the things I am loving this week!

On TV – Judges Cuts are all done on America’s Got Talent and the live shows start next week. But this week I’m picking one of my favorite summer shows – Suits. Season 6 begins with Mike going to prison and Jessica, Louis and Harvey doing everything in their power to keep PSL in business.  Harvey came through like he always does – but this time it cost him something very personal.

On the Page – I just got Real Simple‘s August issue in the mail and I couldn’t wait to read it cover to cover! “How to use paint to transform just about anything” is RIGHT up my alley (look at my past outdoor makeovers using mainly spray paint to transform old furniture here and here.)


On the Web – Lately I’ve been enjoying reading Crazy Organized tips for how to keep everything neat, organized and together. I love her Paper Organization Series and her Fast Fix Friday posts.


For My Classroom – I went into Walmart for beach chairs for my vacation – and came out with 30 notebooks from the back-to-school aisle. Even though I was cursing that the school supply aisles were already in full force – I could not help but scoop up these adorable math notebooks for my daily “Solve-It” problems. Next I need to make cute name labels for everyone!


On Instagram – Loving the That Color Coding System Though post on ‘s IG account.  Click through to the great blog post on her color-coding systems.  Of course I heart all of this!


What are you loving this week? Leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks for reading.

My Friday Favorites 02.27.15

Happy Friday everyone!  Here is a list of all the things I am loving this week.

On TV – I am a week behind on my DVR watching all my shows… but the show I am really loving right now is Nashville.  The midyear finale was great, as has been every episode since.  Teddy, Rayna, Jeff, Maddie, Deacon – each subplot is action packed.  I even care about Laila Grant right now. (Not so much Gunner and his son/nephew  – but there is always one fast-forwarder storyline, right?)  I can’t wait to watch last night’s episode this weekend!


On the Page –  Martha Stewart Living March 2015 is at the top of my stack this week. Spring into Color is reminding me that spring is just around the corner (I hope.)

On the Computer-  I stumbled across this blog from a Pinterest pin and loved, loved, loved this entry! How I Organize my Brain from Sweet Tea and Saving Grace  Everything in this post is one of my favorites, so it was obviously making this list.  To-do lists, planners, notebooks, owls, post-its, sharpies.  The only thing I disliked was the fact that I didn’t find it soon enough to enter the give away contest

On my Pinterest Boards-  I found this pin on Organization 101 Board, a board that often shows up in my suggested pins and Pinterest Weekly email.  What can I say? Pinterest gets me!  Stuffed animals drive me C.R.A.Z.Y. and the thought of putting them in a pretty trash can makes me very happy. (Perhaps the process will make me think I am throwing them out?) This pin led me to a great post: Think outside the {toy} Box – Over 50 Organizational Tips for Kids’ Spaces over at Attempting Aloha.

On the Stage-  Last night, my husband and I saw a phenomenal production of Into the Woods at a regional theatre in our area, Theatre Horizon. This musical is one of my favorites and it was a powerhouse cast, in a small intimate setting.  I would tell you to check it out if you live in the Philadelphia area, but the entire run is sold out.  And last night, I found out why. I will be singing the songs all day today.  Careful when you say – listen to me… 


Hope you had a great week.  What are you reading, watching, pinning, and enjoying? Leave me a comment and let me know the things you are loving this week.  Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!
