Weekly Reads, Vol. 54
You always hear it -- "the book was better than the movie." And most of the time, it's true. However, Michelle at Blogs Like a Girl campaigns for a few movies that are better than the books. See if you agree or disagree. Or maybe you have a few to add to her list.
If you have furbabies, snuggle them a little closer this weekend. And also send up some prayers and good vibes for Peyton, the lovable companion to Christy at Planes, Trains, & Running Shoes.
I have yet to figure out how to really cook with quinoa. Maybe this garlic chicken and quinoa recipe from Ricci at Ricci Alexis will help me get started.

I don't usually read the Bloglovin' posts that randomly show up in my feed, but the title of this one caught my eye -- Things We Do: 5 Mistakes Every Girl Has Made At Least Once. And as I read it, I kept nodding. Yep. Guilty.
Joey at Hodges Podges asks When A Marriage Ends: Was It All a Lie? She opens up about her own relationship even as she evaluates some of the broken ones around her. As someone who has watched friends go through some terrible breakups and divorces, I could totally relate.
Have a great Saturday!
P.S. Ryan Gosling is hosting "Saturday Night Live" tonight if that interests you. I know I'll be staying up for it.
