january favorites

Last week was probably one of the most stressful weeks I've had since the first month of school. I'm not quite sure there was a real reason that it was any more stressful than the others, but I freaked out a few too many times and had to take the entire weekend to decompress after my cardiology exam. In fact, I'm taking this morning off to decompress as well ;) . 

Jake came home after another long week away Friday, and right after he walked in the door we headed to dinner and met up with friends who had tickets for The Funny Bone Comedy Club. We had such a fun time! 

After Jake finished working Saturday (while I bummed on the couch all day), we did take time to enjoy the warmer weather and started cleaning up the house. My entire counters were covered in dirty dishes, the laundry was overflowing, and you couldn't see our closet floor - this was all just from me and my week by the way. We finally took our christmas decorations down, cooked dinner, ran errands, and chilled the rest of the time. 

Here are some of my January favorites that I've loved this month!

1. Pitch Pizza 

Jake and I are attempting to make this a weekly (or biweekly) stop. So delicious.

2. Glossybox Subscription

Stay tuned tomorrow for my first monthly review. A Christmas gift that keeps on giving, what a nice treat to get a surprise present in the mail every month! 

3. 1989

I've been jamming to this on my commute every single day to lift my mood. This is what Taylor was meant to do. 

4. This painting at UNMC: "The First Year" by Neil Christensen

5. Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I don't even know how I heard about this book, but I am so glad that I did. This book is for fans of Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, and Divergent type books. It's more of an adult book than the YA novels because it has more detailed violence and terror than Harry Potter ever had. It's an easy read with much less characters to remember than what Game of Thrones asks you, but it's a complex story and you can't predict what will happen next. 

I can't review books as well as others. Check out Barnes and Noble's "Five Reasons You Should Read Red Rising." Don't be afraid by the fact that it takes place on Mars I was disinterested because of that at first but it only took a few chapters to get hooked.

  1. 1. I LOVE THAT T.SWIFT ALBUM! My husband is obsessed too... I totally bought it the day it came out.
    2. Thanks for the book recommendation. It sounds like something right up my alley and I've been looking for a new read.
    3. I hope this week is less stressful for you :) (Med school sounds HARD.)
