High Five for Friday: April 6


Inspired by Brandie at Running on Words and Wine and Kim at Kimberlyfaye Reads,I've created my own Friday post!
1. New Books this Week
Just checked out this book from the library yesterday. I'm obsessed with the cover! 
2. Books I've Been Loving this Week 
 I finished Waking up in Eden the other night and absolutely loved it. It's nonfiction that reads like fiction and is set in Kauai. I started How to Walk Away this week and was sucked in from the first chapter. When you read the blurb it sounds like a super downer of a book, but it's so well written. Will post a full review closer to its publishing date (May 15).

3. When I Wasn't Reading 

Wine + Yoga was Monday night! My favorite yoga teacher taught Monday's class and it was exactly what I needed! I also had a really good 4 mile run at the gym on Wednesday.

Drinking: Eola Hills rose. Leggings:Altar Ego apparel
4. So Random

The trees are blooming here now and they're so pretty!! I live not far away from the state capital of Salem, Oregon and surrounding the capital are gorgeous cherry trees. The Travel Salem Facebook page posted this photo this week. Such a pretty time of year! Yay Spring!

5. Weekend Plans  

I'm super excited for this weekend.  Saturday is Fred Meyer Plant Day. It's a super awesome day where you bring your own pots, buy the flowers you want, and the Fred Meyer crew pots them for you for free, including the potting soil! As someone who hates gardening but loves flowers, this is ideal. Then on Sunday we leave for the beach for a couple nights! My husband has all next week off so I took off a couple days too! We figured things would be a little quieter if we went Sunday-Tuesday since Oregon's already had Spring break. Looking forward to ocean watching, reading time, good food and relaxation time! Hopefully some yoga too. I won't be posting a Monday post next week so I can unplug for a couple days.

Have a good weekend and thanks for reading!  


  1. That plant day sounds like something I need in my life. I hate to garden, but I need plants! Your beach getaway also sounds amazing...enjoy every minute!!
    I'm glad you're enjoying How to Walk Away...I have that one on my TBR and have been wondering if it's any good.
