Friday Favorites

9:00 AM


My last week of winter break is over {sad day}. Also, Matt and I have been together for one year and 10 months! I can't believe it's almost been two years already! So here is the first "Friday Favorites" of 2015!

One | Restaurants: When Gary came to town for a few days on New Years, we went to three different restaurants {I love dining in Phoenix}. We went to Bobby Q's {Thursday}, Chelsea's Kitchen {Friday}, and Z'Tejas {Friday}. {You can read more about Gary's trip here} Those are three of the many favorite places that Matt and I have in Phoenix {it was hard to pick Friday's dining spots}.

Two | Target: On Wednesday Matt and I went into Target to find a backpack for him to take to work and instead I walked out with a cute blazer that was on clearance {it was $19.09 total!}. There were some other cute clothes {there always is!} but the blazer is what I really wanted! I love walking through Target's clothing and shoe sections and seeing what they have! {They're having a boot sale if you're interested!}

Three | Scrabble: Last weekend we went to Fry's and bought a computer Scrabble and Monopoly game pack {Matt told me that he would buy it for me awhile ago}. It has kept me entertained when I get stuck on blog posts or when I just want to take a quick break. It is really nice because I don't have to play with Matt {he's too good at Scrabble} but the computer seems to be just as good as him. But out of the one Monopoly game I've played, I won!

Four | Books: When I was in high school I didn't really read much for enjoyment; mostly because I was stuck suffering reading books I didn't enjoy. But now that I'm in college I have time {I know, shocking} to read books that catch my attention or seem interesting to me. One book I'm reading now is You Just Can't Get Enough, Gossip Girl: The Carlyles {the second book of the Carlyle series}, It is a Gossip Girl Series written after the original Gossip Girl series {which I do want to read. It's the book series that the TV series was based on}. There is also a spin off called The It Girl starring Jenny Hunphrey but that's a different post for a different day. All of these series' are written/thought of by Cecily von Zeigesar. Anyway, I'm liking the Carlyle series! I'm still on the first book. We'll see how it goes, I really want to read the original though!
