April 2017 Lifestyle Favorites

Movie: The Founder
A great movie (thank you Trey for the recommendation) about the founders of McDonald's. Also, it made Ben want to eat McDonald's for a week straight until we actually went and got it. #marketing

TV Show: Veep
I hate admitting when Ben is right about TV (and he's definitely wrong sometimes... i.e. Arrested Development, Californication, not for me). But Veep is amazing, and I'm never not laughing whenever he has it on.

Restaurant: Dandelion Market (Charlotte, NC)
I went here for the first time for my friend Kristin's bachelorette weekend (shoutout to Carrie for planning the ultimate flamingle fest for our girl!). It was so cute, reasonably priced small plates, and great food!

Candle: Venice Peach Bellini by Bath and Body Works
A romantic Italian blend of sparkling peach, sweet orange, and mandarin. Ben's least favorite candle of all time besides anything pumpkin.

Starbucks Drink: Lightly Sweetened Iced Chai Latte
My jam recently.

BookThe Book of Joy by the His Holiness The Dalai Lama & Archbishop Desmond Tutu
They are the cutest, and this was an incredible read. It was so great to read about their friendship, even though they've only met a handful of times.

Song: 'Body Like a Back Road' by Sam Hunt
Ben is rolling his eyes in his office as he reads this.

Podcast: The Daily - The New York Times
I listen to this literally every morning while I'm getting ready for work. Michael Barbaro is my #1 source of the news. If you don't listen to this, and even if you don't listen to podcasts, you should start and start with this one.

iPhone/iPad app: Realtor
Because this is how we found our new house!! (see picture).

Person: Carrie 
How great is it when one of your friends has another amazing friend that you can become friends with!? (lots of the word 'friend' in that sentence). Meet Carrie, who is Kristin (KO)'s best friend and was her matron of honor at her wedding. Carrie and I instantly connected and I cannot wait to have triple dates (or wine nights...) with her & Kristin! Love you, lady.
