I’m going to try to start something new. A weekly feature every Thursday evening or Friday. I’m calling it Five Faves and it will highlight five items from my week that have either caught my attention or have served me well. It could be something as mundane as my Converse sneakers or a really great photo I felt like sharing. Things I’d like to document but not necessarily dedicate an entire post to. So here it goes!



  1. My computer. I just got my MacBook Pro a few months ago and it has already served me well. It’s served me particularly well this past week since work has been really busy. And because I have this little gem, I’m able to copy any work I need to finish at the end of the day and bring it home with me instead of having to stay at the office all night. I get to watch TV in my pajamas and hang with Beck while still being productive.
  2. The Fossil catalog arrived today. I love this retro-inspired top.
  3. On Wednesday, Emily over at The Scoop featured this poster as a representation of how she felt after the election results were in. I felt the same way and just adore this print from Etsy seller dazeychic.
  4. Jon Stewart is on my List of 5. He’s dreamy, intelligent and hilarious. His coverage on Wednesday night’s show in regard to CNN’s nutty hologram technology had me literally snorting I was laughing so loud. Especially when they did their own version of “beaming in” Arnold Schwarzenegger. Watch it here.
  5. One of my favorite bloggers, dooce, posts daily photos of her dog Chuck. They’re always hilarious but I especially loved this one because of the politically-relevant caption she wrote: He may not answer the questions you want to hear, but he’s going to talk straight to the American people and let them know his track record also.

I love this! Hmm . . . I wonder if I can commandeer the basic idea and make it work for my blog. 😉
