fabulous friday #11

It’s TGIF! You know what that means…

Here are 5 things I’m loving right now:

1. Independent bookstores. I could spend hours wandering through a bookstore, and have a special place in my heart for cute little independent ones. My new favorite: Rakestraw Books in Danville. Look at this framed quote they have on the wall {so true!}

And this book made me laugh out loud. Poor pups!

2. Walks with Dana. Exercise always flies by with this girl because we talk and talk about anything and everything. {Don’t you love friends like that? I’m so blessed in my friendships!} This past weekend she took me on a beautiful path by her house, and we saw chickens and this super-cool birdhouse display.

3. My amazingly supportive hometown community and incredibly kind friend {and fellow writer} Ken McAlpine, who interviewed me for Our Ventura TV a few weeks ago … the interview is now available to watch! Here’s the link: http://ourventura.com/empowering-kids-through-writing-and-reading/2737/

4. This Broccoli Slaw & Kale w/Chicken Salad from Trader Joe’s. I know I already gave a shout-out to TJ’s in last week’s fabulous friday post, but this salad deserves its own spotlight. You guys. I could eat this salad for days on end and not get sick of it. {Actually, that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing this week… LOVE it!}

5. My friend Shane’s blog, Day by Yoga, that chronicles his experience as a budding yogi. Shane is an “old soul” … super wise, super inspiring, super down-to-earth. His blog posts always brighten my day!

Questions of the morning:

  • What are you loving right now?
  • Any fun plans for the weekend?
  • What is your favorite Trader Joe’s find?

  1. Great writing advice! I’m always quieting my inner-critic. And I love that Ken said “the journey is where you spend most of your time.” I think that’s really important to remember.

    That Broccoli Slaw & Kale w/ Chicken Salad from Trader Joe’s looks amazing.

    Thanks for the shout out, too. You’re amazing, Dal!

    Right now I’m loving yoga, blogging, and the Sundance Channel’s mini-series, Top of the Lake (which I just finished watching on Netflix). Elisabeth Moss was phenomenal!

  2. The chicken who loved us! Awww 🙂 I’m so honored to be part of your Fabulous Friday…walks with you are the BEST. Love you, Dallas! xoxo
