Five Favorites for Friday


1. The public library, especially Wake County's System. Their user friendly website allows you to login with your card number, create a book list & request books. They'll send you an email when your choices become available and have them waiting for you up front ready to be checked out and enjoyed! Best part: it's free!



2. Guilty Summer TV. I am loving The Philanthropist & Royal Pains. (Missed them? Catch them for free on Hulu!)

3. Ciao Bella Gelato. Especially Blood Orange & Lime Graham Cracker. Yumm.


4. Julie & Julia. The Badger took me last weekend and lets just say the smile never left my face the entire time. Great movie for any (wannabe) foodie and/or blogger. (and, lets be honest, anyone who has meltdowns from time to time.)


5. and for a favorite from Pete: These new treats mom bought me at Target. They look mini colorful fruits and veggies and are yummy. Mom thinks they are cute, look nice in her apothecary jar, AND were on coupon from last weekends paper! I wonder if she'll give me one now...

Ciao Bella gelato is delish! Mmm. And yes, summer tv can be the most fab ever. Anyone remember the OC? It started in the summer & I LOVED IT!
