Favorite Podcast: I have to be typical and say Serial, but before I started listening to Serial, it was definitely The Lively Show. And will probably be long-term The Lively Show. Because it is the one podcast I've listened to consistently. But I'm a lawyer. and Serial is insane. So if I'm being honest, I have to list it.
Favorite Album: It should come as no surprise that this one is Taylor Swift's 1989. Which I bought at Target the day it came out. And then bought a under-the-counter CD player/bluetooth system so that I could listen to it in my apartment, since my macbook air doesn't have a CD drive.
Favorite Item at Trader Joe's: Candy Cane Joe-Joe's. So good I dreamt about them last night. Why must they be seasonal? I have no idea. Non-seasonal item? Creamy Goat Cheese and Everything Bagels. Breakfast love.
Favorite Ann Arbor Restaurant: Aventura. For dinner, for brunch. Sava's new tapas venture was my go-to "going out" restaurant. Favorite dishes? Patatas Bravas, Churros, Coca Del Toque (brunch exclusive. totally worth it).

Favorite App: Instagram. follow me and maizey.
Favorite Song: "Riptide" by Vance Joy.
Favorite Movie: The Fault in Our Stars. I sobbed, and loved it so much. As someone who's worked with children with life-threatening illnesses for the past 5 years, this book and movie completely told it like it is. I have never seen a more accurate portrayal.
Favorite Clothing Item: Madewell Sweatshirt Dress. Ordered on ebay since its not sold any more, and totally worth it.
Favorite Flower: Peonies
Favorite Skincare Product: Dr. Jardt Sleeping Facial + Lush's Let the Good Times Roll
Favorite Make Up Item: Beauty Blender
Favorite Race: Hot Cocoa Classic Half Marathon - April 6, 2014. Half Marathon PR. Failed to do a recap because I'm the worst. Whoops.
Favorite Craft: Finally finishing/really learning how to crochet. and by "crochet" I mean do a bunch of double crochets in a row, with limited turning, increasing, and slip stitching.
I successfully crocheted the following:
an infinity scarf
a much longer infinity scarf that loops around once for a little bulk
Favorite Blog: How Sweet Eats.
Favorite Planner: Whitney English Day Designer
I've always been one of those people obsessed with planners. So when I found the whitney english day designer last year, despite already having a moleskine, I made the switch. and haven't looked back.
Favorite TV Show: this is hard. I just breezed through all 10 episodes of The Affair and loved it in the beginning, but that love kind of wavered by the end of it. I stopped watching a bunch of shows I used to watch this fall, including revenge and nashville, although i wouldn't be opposed to catching up on them. I just didn't make it a priority. I have still been watching "Modern Family" and "The Mindy Project," but haven't been loving them as much. I do still LOVE LOVE Parks and Recreation, and I think if it was on, it would be something I'd watch every week. I'm so sad it's ending. Also, this is everything.
