Five Things Friday: iZombie, Crafts, and More!

Posted April 26, 2019 by shooting in Personal / 25 Comments

A lot of blogs do these Five Things Friday, or Friday Favorites. There aren’t necessarily favorites, but I figured it’s a fun way to share things about my life – or that I’m loving! So Five Things Friday it is!

One: I Injured My Shoulder

Let’s get the not so fun item out of the way first. Yeah, I injured my shoulder. They think it’s a rotator cuff injury – tendinitis/bursitis type of thing. I had this five years ago so I’m not terribly shocked its happened again. I’m pretty sure it’s from dance this time. Right now I’m taking medicine and I have a physical therapy appointment soon. My dance recital is May 4, so I’m kind of “faking” my way through practice (at least with the arms – focusing more on my feet) and then I’ll just push through the actual recital. It’ll be fine – it’s just annoying. It was really painful this past Friday but now that I’ve been on medicine, etc. it’s not nearly as bad. Still hurts as the day goes on though – as I write this, I have an ice pack on it so that feels good.

Two: iZombie the TV Show

iZombie TV show on The CW: season 3 ratings (canceled or season 4?)

I’m not that great at binge watching things, so there are tons of shows that I’d really love to watch, it just takes me forever to get to them – and then get through them. However, I read the iZombie graphic novels a few years ago and really enjoyed them so I’ve been wanting to watch the show. I’m only about halfway through the first season, but I’m loving it! The first four seasons are on Netflix if you’re curious.

Three: Felt Flower Hoops

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I love going to library craft events (usually with my mom). Last night we attended one of these and made felt flower hoops. I think they turned out really cute!

Four: X Ambassadors Has a New Album Coming Out!

One of my favorite bands is X Ambassadors. I love their music, and they are amazing live. This week they announced that their second album, Orion, is coming out on June 14 and I.Cannot.Wait.

Five: Lauren Myracle is Coming to Cincinnati

I love author events, and I haven’t been to one in awhile, so I’m hoping I can make it to see Lauren Myracle. She’s touring for her new book Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale. It’s on my wish list, and I love that it’s a graphic novel, as I’m a big GN fan. If you live in or around Cincinnati, Lauren is going to Joseph-Beth Booksellers on Friday, May 10 at 6 p.m.

  1. Oh my gosh, I am obsessed with your flower hoops! Great job. I want to make one! I am so not craft though.
    iZombie has been on my to-watch list for years. Glad to hear it’s good!
    Sorry about your shoulder. πŸ™ Hope you feel better ASAP.

  2. Oh no! I hope that your shoulder heals up well and soon. That sucks! πŸ™ I am glad you are enjoying iZombie. I was heistant (mostly because of the name, honestly) but it is very smart. I did not love the most recent season quite as much as the others… but it is still good. Excited for the *sniffle* last one to start soon! XO – Alexandra

  3. Bummer about your shoulder! That is no good at all! I love your flower hoops! I would like to make something like that, so pretty! I hope that you have a good weekend and that your shoulder starts to feel better!

    I have been seeing iZombie, but have yet to dive in fully yet. Maybe it’s time? Thanks for sharing your feelings about the show so far!

  5. Those flower hoops are so cute!!!! And I haven’t heard of this zombie series but will have to give it a look! Also I’m so sorry to hear about the shoulder ? I hope you feel better soon, my sweet, and wishing you a happy weekend!

  6. I’m sorry about your shoulder injury. Hope you feel better soon.

    iZombie sounds like my kind of show. I’ve heard about it, but didn’t know it was a Graphic Novel. Kind of reminds me of the White Trash Zombies books. I hope they make a TV/Netflix series about those too.

  7. Oooopmhp on the shoulder. That really stinks friend. I hope that feels better soon!
    I absolutely adore those felt flowers. They are so delicate and cute! Great work! xoxo

  8. Bummer about the shoulder! It’s hard when an injury needs a lot of time to heal. Hope PT helps. iZombie looks good, I’ll have to check it out.

    Enjoy the book event! πŸ™‚

  9. So sorry about your shoulder! I went through the whole tendinitis/bursitis thing in college- actually I was probably lucky to escape it until that point, because swimming is notorious for it. I hope that physical therapy helps- I ended up getting Cortisone shots just to get through senior year, perhaps that could be a short-term option just until your recital?

    I want to watch iZombie at some point. I hope the X Ambassadors album is good, and that you are able to go to the author event too!
