Y’all, it’s my birthday weekend. I’m stressed, the world is on lockdown, but I’m celebrating anyway. (at home, but it’s happening)
10. This Top Ten is all the things that made me happy this week and these good pups taking a group picture at doggy day care made me smile.
9. *heart eyes forever*
😍I love that they look so happy. https://t.co/nxh5GF7NBX— FV Angela 📚⚾️🏀🍷 (@fv_angela) March 6, 2020

4. I feel like this week calls for more sweet pet pictures. Here’s a bunch of smiling dogs.
3. Or maybe a Schitt’s Creek themed birthday party?
2. I have a rec for y’all today! I read this book last weekend and I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. It’s weird and charming, quirky and fabulous. It releases on Tuesday so go hit the one-click preorder button. AMAZON (I’ll have a review up next week.)

1. We had a lot of plans this weekend and now I’m not sure what will be put on hold and what’s still good to go. I’m hoping the crawfish boil at my brother’s is still on. I do plan on finishing Crush the King by Jennifer Estep and starting The Honey Don’t List by Christina Lauren.
Have a great weekend everyone!
