The Friday Five

I saw this on a blog and although the host isn't doing it anymore, I'm gonna! It looks like fun. :)

The Friday Five:

1. What I'm reading: Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. Okay, I have read ALL of her books and all of the Shopaholic series but I can't get into this book. Maybe it's because I've taken a very long hiatus from Chick-Lit to read more intellectual (?) books like Sarah's Key, The Hunger Games, and Water for Elephants; or, maybe it's just not that great of a book. I'm going to try to finish it though because I paid $12 and for an ebook - that's a lot!!


2. What I'm listening to: No Other Name by NewSpring Worship! I love, love, love this cd!! Our church released this album last week and it was #4 on iTunes (under Christian music) almost immediately! Go here to get it!


3. What I'm watching: How I Met Your Mother. Oh my gosh why am I just now watching this show?? I'm on Season 2 (thank you Netflix) and I can't stop watching it. Hilarious!!!


4. What I'm eating: Okay I have no idea why but I have been obsessed with oranges lately. They are SO good! Who knew?? Only downfall they have is that I can't eat them while blogging or reading because they are super messy. Boo.

5. What I'm pinning: Recipes, mostly! Madi and I made these adorable monkey cupcakes a few weekends ago. They turned out great and we had so much fun!

Those monkey cupcakes are precious! What are those, vanilla wafers? And yes How I Met Your Mother is ah-mazing. An old roommate of mine introduced me, and I can't get enough.

I'm still super bummed about the book. I'm not sure why I haven't read it yet?

Those cupcakes are adorable!

I don't like chick lit at all, but I do love Sophie Kinsella. I liked Mini-Shopaholic, but I think my favorite was Shopaholic Takes Manhattan.

I'm linking up too!:) I love HIMYM and those monkey cupcakes.. Thanks for bringing this one back!~

Heather said...

Mini Shopaholic was my least fave of her books. I'm excited for her new one in a few Weeks!

We just started watching HIMYM too and I love it!

I've only read the first Shopoholic book and to be honest, I couldn't get into the series. I hated how it was like, "Oh poor me, I keep spending money that isn't mine.. blah blah" ;-) HIMYM is the BEST show! Glad you're enjoying it. Have a great weekend, Britan!

Ruth said...

I had a hard time getting into Mini Shopoholic too. I managed to finish it but it was no where near as good as the rest in the series.
I am glad you are enjoying HIMYM.

I was a late bloomer to the HIMYM party also. Now I'm hooked! It is so freakin' funny. I love how all the characters interact with each other.
I have been in on the orange craze for he last month or so. Each week I buy myself a bag of the Cuties clementines. Such a fun easy snack!
