Friday Favorites : Alaska, Books, & Vegas Museums

Happy Friday friends! I’m linking up with the ladies at A Little Bit of Everything BlogGrace and Love Blog, and Momfessionals as usual! 🙂 Head on over to all their sites if you wanna join in the link ups!


I’m also linking up with other blogging women at A.Liz AdventuresCarolina CharmHello! Happiness, and The Good Life Blog.p-txt

 And last but not least The Farmer’s Wife and September Farm.





The Last Alaskans is a new show on Animal Planet that my boyfriend Dave worked on along with our good friends. Yes, I am biased, but I really think it’s a great show that you should check out! It is an 8 part series that started this past week. So this Sunday will be episode two at 7pm central time.

It’s about these families who live on the Arctic National Wildlife refuge, hundreds of miles away from towns and civilization. The show follows their life and what it’s like in the dead of winter and being isolated and how they survive. I know there are a lot of shows based in Alaska, but this one is filmed differently and they really are living off the grid.


I may not be writing a rave review or getting you interested but you can read the reviews here from the New York Times,  the Washington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, and the Wall Street Journal. They’re pretty trustworthy right? 🙂


This week I shared my interview with Morinda who is a wife and mother of 4 kids. She has a beautiful way with words and is has such a sweet and nurturing soul. If you missed it this week, be sure to read both parts of her interview, Part 1 & Part 2.




Yesterday for Travel Thursdays on the blog, I talked about my time at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. It is full of history and big, gorgeous marquee lights. It was my favorite museum I’ve been to in a while.



I went to the library this week and got some books. I’m currently reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (saw the movie years ago and loved it, and now I want to read the book) Adulting how to become a grown-up in 468 easy(ish) steps by Kelly Williams Brown, Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin, (read her other book the Happiness Project and loved it) and The Best Advice I Ever Got by Katie Couric. 

Nothing super new, but all new to me. I’d also love to hear your book suggestions if you have any!






I’ve been playing tennis this week after work and it makes me so happy. It’s definitely a passion of mine. I wish that I could have played professionally, I love it that much. I should be training for my upcoming half marathon in July, but tennis is so much more fun. 🙂
Hope you all have a great weekend! What fun plans do you have?
