Friday Feels

Friday Feels

This was my first week back from Spain and it’s been a doozy of a week. My calendar is brimming and my email inbox is a beast that needs to be tamed. Expect some posts next week about my trip. I started posting on my food blog. You can see the first post listed under my personal plugs in this week’s list of things that made me feel things. I’m heading to Houston after work today to visit my parents and also to pick up Bob the dog. They’ve been babysitting him so we could travel. I’ve missed him! What are you doing this weekend?

  • And some good (and adorable) news in the news!
  • Interesting read about Chinese food and inauthentic cooking.
  • Journal prompts from Joy the Baker.
  • My friend has been crocheting little super heroes and dropping them off at ComiCon for years. I love that she has repeat finders! Read her latest recap here.

  • While I’m bragging about my friends, my other friend Thomas’s photos from his honeymoon are killing me with wanderlust.

  • A divorce lawyer’s guide to marriage.

  • Why you should let yourself be photographed even if you don’t like how you look.
  • Do your friends actually like you?
  • A guide on how to support your stressed loved ones according to their personality type. On point for me as an ENFJ!
  • Find a new city.”
  • Advice for young writers.
  • I read Fates and Furies while in Barcelona. I found myself relishing subway rides so I could whip it out and continue reading!
  • I also started Men We Reaped in Barcelona. Finished it this week and it’s relevant and maybe even essential reading.
  • Speaking of essential reading, I also finished Lindy West’s Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman. I loved the biting. polemic style. She takes on fat shaming and rape jokes.

  • I’m in the reading zone and also started Truth and Beauty and am already enthralled after just one chapter.
  • Personal Plugs

  • I started posting about Barcelona this week on the food blog. The first post was about paella!
  • Also enjoyed the photos I shot in this food blog post about a new opening in Austin. The sangria pic especially!
  • Our latest episode of I Feel Better went up yesterday and it’s about the Olympics!
    • The how to deal with stressed loved ones according to personality type–ahhhhhhhh!!!! It’s so spot on! I’m an INFP :)

      Also the “Find a New City.” hahaha! SO TRUE.

      • Love how exercise is a common destresser for all the types.

      The how to deal w/ stressed loved ones is genius! It was spot on for me (I’m an ISTJ). I am glad that you liked Fates and Furies so much!!

      I can’t wait to hear more about your trip!!!

    • That’s so awesome you went to Spain! Can’t wait to read all about it. :)
