Five Things Friday

At long last, it's Friday!  I have lots of random thoughts banging around in my head, and can't wait for a couple of days with my family.  And since you all come here regularly to read my random thoughts, here are five of them:

1. I just finished reading Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling and really enjoyed it.  I read it in three sittings, and it (obviously) was a really quick, funny book.  I felt like it was really similar to Tina Fey's book, which I also enjoyed, and made television writing sound pretty awesome.  Has anyone else read it?

2. I think I am on to something when I combine a patterned dress, cardigan, belt, and wedge sandals or flats.  I got four random compliments on my outfit on Wednesday, and had one (male) coworker tell me "I like when girls dress like you - pretty but not fancy."  I think it's the cardigan that makes it all seem very approachable.  Here's are some similar outfits, if you'd like to recreate:

3. Tonight I'm making this cake for my family - hopefully it turns out!  The recipe looks incredibly easy, and the frosting is made of marshmallow cream and cool whip, so there's no question that I'll like it!  (Click through Pinterest for the recipe)

4. I've been listening to the free BBC podcasts that accompany this book  and they are SO interesting (to a history nerd like me).  I'm just amazed at how an object can survive 1000 years or more, and can't wait to visit ancient Roman sites in May.  This new fancy hardback version of the book with a gorgeous green and gold cover just jumped to the top of my wish list.

5. I impulse bought some Candie's leopard wedge heels on eBay for $10 this month, and they are officially my new favorite shoes.  I wear them with everything and can't imagine not having them.  I was really determined to find a pair with the wedge covered in leopard, and not just the upper part.  You should get some too - seriously!  this pair  on Amazon is the closest option I've seen that isn't over $200 - only $18.99!

That's all, folks!  Have a great weekend!
