Friday Favorites!

This week flew by. I can’t believe it’s already Friday but I’m so happy it is! This is my first time doing Friday Favorites in a while. It feels good to be back to blogging this week. I will try my hardest to keep it up next week.

Thank you for guys for sticking with me and still reading and commenting. It’s so nice I can come back and still find you guys here. ๐Ÿ™‚ I need to get back to read all your blogs and catch up on the last few weeks! Moving took a lot out of me and threw my blogging schedule for a loop, way more than I thought it would.

THE NEW YOU

This week I finally recapped our Christmas on the coast of Washington. We went to La Push, Lake Crescent, and Ruby Beach. They were all gorgeous and amazing to see. It was our first time seeing a Washington beach.

THE NEW YOU(1)

On Tuesday two of my friends and I went to the Central Library downtown to hear Gretchen Rubin speak. She’s the author of the Happiness Project and does a podcast with her sister called Happier, I’d recommend both! She has also written other books, Happier at Home and more recently Better Than Before (which I need to read.)

She’s a great speaker. She was really funny and made a lot of good points about habits and finding out what type of person you are and knowing what works for you. A while back I did a Happiness Project of my own (focusing on just a few goals per month) and I want to do it again this year. I’m a little behind obviously, but I will be starting it in February. ๐Ÿ™‚

I saw this mural downtown near the Patagonia store and I love it! So much going on and it’s so detailed and colorful. I love a good mural as you might know.

One weekend Dave and I were craving a biscuit and I yelped and found the Wandering Goose. It has become one of my favorite biscuit places in Seattle now. They have delicious jam and varieties of toppings. Dave was so sweet one day and brought Katie and I biscuits at home. It made my day and Katie said it was one of the best biscuits she’s had. She was craving this biscuit for days after. ๐Ÿ™‚

I highly recommend a visit here if you find yourself in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

I justย love this quote. While it’s true that not everyone has the job they are passionate about and pays them to do what they love, there are people who do, and if you’re one of them, you’re so lucky!

I’m still searching for my dream job/career, but for now I’m so happy working where I am and getting to go on amazing weekend adventures in and around Seattle. Those adventures really do make my heart and soul so happy.

Linking up today with Andrea, Erica, andย  Narci:

    I love that quote as well! I do really enjoy my job but it doesn’t allow for much travel adventures. I need to schedule out some small weekend things soon – I’m getting so antsy lately!

  2. So awesome that you got to hear Gretchen Rubin speak! I loved reading The Happiness Project ๐Ÿ™‚ Moving seriously does throw you for a loop, but you’ll settle in and find your groove soon!

    1. I feel like I’m settled now after moving here at the end of October, but our rental lease is up in March, so looks like we are going to be moving AGAIN lol. So I’m trying to set up some blog posts to try to stay on top of it this time.

  3. So many things. Michael used to work in the same building as the downtown Patagonia, RIGHT behind the store! So weird. And it was a ten minute walk to our apartment. But I don’t remember ever seeing that mural!

    I heard so many good things about the Wandering Goose, and that neighborhood is where Michael’s dad goes for work whenever he’s there, but we just never tried it!

    Also I JUST saw that quote for the first time ever this morning so now I’m weirded out that I’m seeing it again so soon!
