a simple lifestyle blog


Greetings, friends! 

As it is Friday, the most glorious day of the week and the end to the work week, I would like to celebrate with all of you by sharing some of my FAVORITE things.

Flicks- This is Where I Leave You

Jason Bateman (Juno), Tina Fey (Mean Girls / the hearts of feminists everywhere), Adam Driver (Girls), Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris) and Jane Fonda (Monster-in-Law) are a family gathering together for shiva, which is the Jewish tradition of spending seven days confined to the same home in memoriam of a loved one who has died, in this case the patriarch of the family.

So, you can look forward to:

Tunes- Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros

Personal bias, this was one of our wedding songs.

Also, its in Icelandic and “hopelandic” (i.e. made up words/phrases by the band). Go impress your friends with this knowledge.
The best part is that its in the movie Penelope which is *no shame* one of my single favorite movies of all time.

Eats- Panda Express Chow Mein Copycat

Okay, if I’m being real right now, I love Panda Express.
I love it so much.
I love how it bears almost no resemblance to the “real thing,” whatever that is. That’s just what people tell me.
Have I even ever had “real Chinese food?”
I don’t know, but this recipe is on our weekly rotation because it is quick and yummy AS EFF.
Pop on over to Damn Delicious’s blog for the recipe.


Thanks for this little gem, Etsy!


Do you have any favorites worth sharing?

Until next week, cheers!
