Five Faves 8/10/18

Five Faves 8-10-18 — Five things I’ve been consuming or enjoying this week.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

This movie has been one of the highlights of my summer!  For months I have been day dreaming about the sequel with my aunt,  listening to the soundtrack on Spotify, and generally talking about seeing it to anyone who would listen.  As soon as PQ left last weekend for a conference, I drove straight to the theater (making a pit stop at the gas station for Sour Patch Kids, of course).  It lived up to my expectations and was, surprisingly, worlds better than the first one!

I’ve previously discussed my love for Mamma Mia and ABBA.  After seeing Mamma Mia 2, I have to add a few new favorite ABBA songs: When I Kissed the Teacher, One of Us, Why Did It Have To Be Me? and Andante, Andante.

Sour Patch Kids (here is way too many).

As I mentioned above, I had to stop for Sour Patch Kids on the way to the theater.  Is this anyone else’s favorite candy?

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, by Mark Manson.

This book was a hit at my annual Christmas book exchange last year.  I was finally able to read it this week and found it to be a refreshingly counter intuitive approach to help you figure out what is important and let everything else go.  It was an honest reality check about our problems, fears, and expectations.

Napa Cabbage Salad.

It’s probably cheating to include this as a post and in my five faves in the same week, but I did make it twice this week!

JOANN Fabrics & Crafts Stores.

More specifically, the woman in the thread aisle who taught me a new word.  When you transfer the thread from the skein to the bobbin, it’s called “Bobbinating.”  Isn’t that fun?   I learn something new with every project I start!
