July’s Five Friday Favorites

Posted July 14, 2017 by shooting in Personal / 34 Comments

It’s Friday! Can you believe we’re practically half way through July? It’s definitely getting really hot out, but it just means I get more time in the pool. Well, when it’s not storming.

Anyway, I haven’t shared some Friday Favorites in awhile so I figured today was a good time to do that. First off though, I want to remind you to enter all the Favorite Things giveaways. You can find the inlinkz here and it will have links to my giveaway, as well as the other bloggers taking part.

Friday Favorites: Netflix Stand Up, Swimming, and Giveaways! #ontheblog Click To Tweet
  1. I had tickets to see the new Spider Man last Friday, but we had a bad storm and the power went out, so we got tickets to come back another time. Normally this would be a downer, but I ran into a friend of mine and her boyfriend while we were there and we ended up going back to their place to watch Moana (neither of them had seen it) so it ended up being a good night anyway! I still need to see Spider Man though.
  2. I got to hang out with another friend Saturday night. She came over and her, myself, and my sister all watched Chris D’elia on Netflix. His stand up, Man on Fire, was really funny. He’s got an amusing way of moving his body and doing impersonations of people. If you remember the show Undateable, he was one of the main guys on that.
  3. As I write this, I’ve read 98 books so far this year! Woah. By the time you read this, it might actually be 99 though because I’m so close to finishing up another book. I tend to read at least two books at a time – one on my Kindle and one physical book. I just go back and forth and it’s easy to follow. I love having a book IN the pool with me – yes, in the pool – so physical books are ideal for that. You can friend me on Goodreads!
  4. Speaking of my pool, love all the pool time! I went swimming Saturday and Sunday last weekend. Normally I would have swam today, but we had those crazy summer thunderstorms. We’ll see how tomorrow goes. At any rate, this weekend should be prime swimming and reading weather!
  5. I’m finally feeling better! I had an ear infection and then some other health problems in the last week, but yesterday was the first day I really felt good and that’s always something to appreciate!

And there you have it – my top 5 favorites of the week! Do we have anything sort of in common? What did you love this past week?

ALSO- August is my 10 year blogoversary month and I want to do a lot of celebrating, because it’s just mind-boggling to me. And that’s 10 years with this blog – not just blogging in general – because I know some people have blogged for YEARS but on a variety of blogs. Anyway, I’m looking for people that want to celebrate with me! Would you want to write a guest post for the blog? Or co-host a giveaway with me? Let me know!

  1. I want to see Spider man soon too. And wow! 98 books is an achievement indeed. You must be proud of yourself. Wishing you an amazing latter half of the year too

  2. I’m jealous of your pool time! And so weird… someone else just mentioned Moana to me, (I hadn’t much thought of it before this week). I’ll have to check it out 🙂

    Dang girl, you are reading your way through the year! That’s amazing! I’ve finally started to pick up speed and read book that are a bit lighter which I’m kind of preferring in the summer anyway. I haven’t been to the movies in ages! Hope you get to see Spiderman (I want to see The Big Sick!).

    XOXO and have a great weekend!!

  3. I recently saw Moana and I loved it. Although, I’m itching to see the new Spider Man movie, too. I like that they actually got someone who looks and acts like a teen. I loved his character in the latest Avengers… Capt. America…. whichever movie it was where he new Spider Man was introduced. LoL

  4. 98 books? Wow! I have only read 2. sad.
    I love to swim and if I had a pool, I would be in it every single day.
    I am happy that you are feeling better. Have a great weekend.

  5. I’m so impressed with your 98 books read! You’re on fire with reading! And all that swimming time sounds so much fun. I might need to take a day off soon just to have a pool day!

  6. So glad you’re feeling better Lauren, I’m prone to ear infections too and they’re horrible in summer especially. Glad you were able to get a few days of swimming in before the storms <3 <3

  7. Sounds like you’ve had a fun week! You’ve read a ton of books! I’m working on #95 right now and should knock a few out this weekend. I’m so glad to hear you are feeling better. It’s always a bummer to be sick during the summer (well, anytime really). Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. OMG, so many fantastic news. Glad to hear that, hon, especially about your ear infection. Glad to hear that it finally healed. You seem to have had a wonderful time. So happy for you. ?❤️

  9. Wow at #3! That’s pretty impressive! I really need to get around to doing more reading… congrats in advance for your 10 months of blogging too 🙂

  10. Halfway through July *shakes head* I have no idea how that even happened. And ooh pool time- good way to spend a weekend!

    10 years coming up in August?? Wow- congrats!!!

  11. Ten. YEARS?! That is beyond impressive! Congrats! Also, I agree, swimming is certainly a favorite of mine, too- though I’ve never been brave enough to bring a book! Also, 99 books is really impressive too! Glad you are feeling better!

  12. 98 books in a year – well done! Congrats on your 10 years – that is awesome 🙂
    Glad you are feeling better – ear infections can be so painful.

  13. You’ve been blogging for 10 years? Wow! I had no idea! That is amazing. I have been blogging for about 8!! It’s hard to believe. I wish we had a pool, the kids would LOVE it. I am glad you are feeling better! We went and saw Spider Man last night!


  14. Glad you’re feeling better!

    I’m so impressed with your reading!! I thought I was doing pretty good having reading 68 books.

    We have a pool in our neighborhood but I’ve never been in it.

  15. Sounds like your July is going well! I used to work at a movie theatre, and those situations always suck. Good to hear that something good came of it and you got comp tickets to come back. People aren’t always nice or understanding about uncontrollable situations like that. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

  16. Oh my goodness, 98 books?! That’s so amazing!! I’m in the forties right now and hoping to get to sixty by the time summer is over. You definitely need to see Spider-Man soon! I’ve seen it twice so far and love it (though a night in watching Moana with friends sounds great, too!).

    Hope the rest of your July is just as awesome!

    I have heard so many good things about the new Spiderman. Hope you love it wehn you see it. Pool time is the best! Great job on you reading this year. I wish I could fit in that many books already! Glad you are feeling better!

  18. Trying to stay cool in this hot weather is something we had in common. Ha ha! It’s good to hear you are feeling better. I hope you are having a great week. 🙂

  19. Too bad the movie was postponed but sounds like it was a fun evening all the same. Almost 100 books this year! Color me impressed. I’m at about 65 and tbh that’s really high for me. It’s owed to the fact that I’ve been listening to audio books quite a bit. So glad you are feeling better. It takes to long to fully shake some things.
