Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  This week’s favorites are short and sweet:

Nina Simone, one of my favorites, is doing a great series on love leading up to Valentine’s Day.  I totally related to her post on envy. 

In an attempt to limit my alcohol intake as well as my aspartame & phenylalanine intake in 2012, I have fallen in love with La Croix sparkling waters.  (Thanks to the fabulous recommendation from my friend Virginia)  My favorites are the plain and grapefruitdelicious and refreshing.  If you’re looking to check it out, so far the cheapest place I’ve found it is a Kroger.  Cheers!!  

And my final favorite of the week?  The good old American Amtrak train.  Yesterday, I hopped on the train in Charlottesville and was whisked away to New York City by the afternoon.  There’s just something so classic and romantic about taking the train.  And it DEFINITELY beats flyingno security, no middle seats, no turbulence, no turning off “electronic controlled devices”you just hop on, sit where you like, and you’re good to go!  They even have WiFi, power outlets, and a quiet car to avoid screaming babies and loud phone talkers.  PLUS, you get to look out the window at our beautiful country.  Ya’ll, America is a pretty incredible place! 

Feel free to leave your favorites in the comments below!  Have a great weekend!
