Friday Faves & Finds (4.20.18)


week in reviewHappy Friday! The weekend snuck up on me this week, which is always a good thing. It means we’ve been busy and living in the moment! I’m planning a mellow weekend, after being up in Sonoma County last weekend with family. The hiking was beautiful, and my husband and I had an amazing date night, but sometimes it just feels good to be at home. I’m looking forward to doing some spring cleaning Saturday, and maybe a short hike. On Sunday, my friend and I are going to see SF Ballet perform Unbound: A Festival of New Works, which I am so, so excited about! Have a wonderful weekend!


This book has some serious Gone Girl vibes and sucked me in immediately. If you are in need of a fast-paced read, this is it.

I’ve never been to Venice, but maybe this cookbook will give me a taste of what the city’s all about.

The other sweeter cookbook I have my eye on. I love to read cookbooks in the morning while I drink tea and wake up (and try to fend off my toddler who would prefer if I jumped out of bed to play trains, as he does).

The new show that has me hooked. What’s not to love about a good old-fashioned cat and mouse game, especially when the main characters are strong women?

Are you also watching season 4 of Chef’s Table? I love the show but was a bit disappointed by this season. I found this review interesting.

And last but not least, my favorite thing I read this week. How would you sum up your life as a parent right now in 10 words or less? The comments are incredible and inspired my husband and me to come up with our own silly life poems.

In case you missed it. . .

Laura shares exciting pregnancy news and explains why it’s actually kind of terrifying.
