Have you every made Friendship Bread? In line with my goal to spend less and make more, I would like to try and spread the love with fresh baked bread.

The #MeToo movement has changed the conversation about women in the workplace. A word from the creator of the hashtag movement here, how to speak up at work here, and honestly, do you have a Fuck off Fund? Because you should.

3 Things

1. Have you read any of the picks from Bill Gates Summer Reading List? While you’re at it, check out Obama’s list and these picks fromAmy Schumer.

2. The pancake-like layers on this Strawberry Graham Icebox Cake remind me of a Danish layer cake I had near my birthday while in Denmark. Mmm!

3. I have never laughed harder than I did while watching this 30 second George Costanza Remix. On that note, have you watched Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? I really enjoy the casualness of two major stars just going for a drive and a cup of joe. I will be catching up on these this summer.

I am so so so SO excited for my trip out West. Here is how I am starting my week right:
np_music_888716_000000.png  I watched the documentary “Little Girl Blue,” about Janis Joplin, on Netflix this weekend. My closest friend and roommate of 2 years loved Janis, and often had one of her albums playing. I learned so much about Janis’ life and death, and as much as I love her earlier albums, I am mesmerized by the trajectory that led her to record the album “Pearl.” I even recorded “Mercedes Benz” the next day. Maybe I’ll share the final copy with you all :)I watched the documentary “Little Girl Blue,” about Janis Joplin, on Netflix this weekend.

np_coffee_888748_000000 Coffee makes me feel good. Iced coffee makes me feel even better! It is finally warm enough to justify a regular iced coffee. My sister and I have this magical coffee every chance we get in the summer. Do try it!

np_book_888684_000000  I almost never quit a book before I finish it, but I caught myself zoning out of my non-fiction text about the discovery of ruins from the ancient Mayan civilization. I decided to give myself a break and pick up something new. I am taking this collection of short stories from a part-time Westerner on my backpacking trip, but plan to sink into this one right away.
