Friday Favourites: Bandwagon Edition

Today's edition of Friday Favourites isn't anything groundbreaking but it is five things that have been my favourites this week. 


This Is Us I know I'm not the only one who has declared this the best TV show to premier in a really long time. And to be honest I'm not even sure what it is that makes it so great, I tuned into the first episode because teen movies of the early 2000s left be with a deep love of Mandy Moore and I just like to see what she's up to now. I'm genuinely interested to see where things are going with this show. Beth is my favourite character so far but I also curious to see where they are going with Kate's storyline.  

Me And My Big Ideas
The Happy Planner. Last year I jumped on the Project Life train and never looked back. At the same time I was busy admiring all of the planner gear and convincing myself that I could only start one new project at a time. Now that 2017 in upon us and I've found my groove with Project Life I let myself go ahead and buy a Happy Planner when they were on sale at Michael's a couple of weeks ago. So now I've been researching all the ways people organize their lives using those handy dandy little books and trying to figure out what method is going to work for me. 


Blogging. After being totally disheartened by all the sponsored posts and 'Pinnable' content in blogland I took a long break from the blog scene. It was a happy coincidence that it also happened to be around camp time when blogging tends to go on the back burner anyway. I wasn't sure if I was ever going to come back to the blog but over the past week and a half I've cleaned up my Bloglovin' feed, found some bloggers who were still blogging about daily life without telling anyone else how to live theirs and am feeling a little more passionate about being part of the blogworld again. 


Netflix. I go through seasons with Netflix and by that I mean from April-September when camp is in full swing I don't really have time to watch Netflix and I certainly don't have the internet connection required to use Netflix. So I cancel my subscription. Last year I was working so much in the winter that I didn't bother to re-subscribe but it's currently October and I have nothing but time on my hands so I signed myself back up and have been happily re-watching The Office, being pleasantly surprised by how many more Disney movies have been added and exploring all of the weird and wonderful documentaries available. This excitement will probably wear off in about 6-8 weeks once I've re-watched and watched all the things I'm interested in watching. For now though it's a favourite thing. 


Thanksgiving. It's a Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada! And while I don't have much enthusiasm for turkey dinner (we have turkey dinner every week at camp on the last night of the session) I do love mashed potatoes & gravy and stuffing and of course my grandmother's pie (definitely not a part of the camp menu). I'm looking forward to the general chaos of a big family meal, getting my camera out and taking some photos and enjoying the general fall festivities.
