It’s been a while since I’ve done a “Friday Favorites” blog post. Here are a few things that I am loving lately.
- Ready Player One One of the best books I have read in quite some time. Ready Player One came out several years ago actually, but I just finally got around to reading it. My friend, Andrew, told me about it and I can’t recommend it enough! The story, which is set in 2044, is basically about a young man who searches for Easter eggs in a virtual reality game with tons of references to 1980’s pop culture. Steven Spielberg is actually directing the movie based on the book, coming out in 2018. I can’t wait!
- Nike Pegasus 34 For over 6 years now, I have been running almost exclusively in Nike Pegasus shoes. Every year, Nike releases a new update on the shoes and this year it is the Pegasus 34’s. I have to be honest; I wasn’t overly impressed with the 33’s. I typically end up with at least 2-3 pairs of each model during the year since I go through running shoes quite often. But this new model looks and feels pretty awesome so far. And I absolutely love the new color scheme on the pair I got this week. I can’t wait to take these out for a spin soon!
- Travel Goodie Bag As you may know, Rachel and I are headed out of the country in late August for 16 days for our 10-year anniversary trip. Our friend and travel agent, Linda Allen, has been helping us plan this trip since last August. Last weekend, we went over to her house for dinner and to finalize the last pieces of our trip. She ended up having a little goodie bag of gifts for us, which was totally unexpected. It included a few travel books, a Starbucks gift card, a RIFD wallet and of all things, a selfie stick. Now I’ll be honest, I’ve been hesitantt to ever buy and/or use a selfie stick. It just always seemed a little weird to me. But after messing around with it, I have to say, I totally see how valuable this will be on our trip next month.
What has been exciting in your world?
