Three on Thursday - Weekly Favorites

July 5, 2018

Welcome back to Three on Thursday, a weekly list of three things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks and more recommendations, you can find those here.  If you make your own Three on Thursday list, please share it in the comments so I can check it out.


ONE.

Swarovski Stone Mini Bangle.  My parents went to Atlantic City last week and my dad got this for me there.  Because he is the best.  He got a silver one for my mom and he thought I would like it too (he has excellent taste in jewelry, he's gotten my mom great stuff over the years) and my mom steered him towards the rose gold one instead, which she was absolutely correct about.  I love it, it's so pretty and sparkly without being obnoxious, so it adds just the right touch of bling to my wardrobe.  Plus it matches everything I already own, and since I don't have much in the way of bracelets, it's the perfect addition.

TWO.

Flat Top Grill.  John and I need to branch out in terms of trying new restaurants, but we just seem to end up back at our favorites.  Particularly, Flat Top.  You go up to a buffet style line and fill your bowl with pasta, rice, all kinds of vegetables, and whatever meats you like.  Then you add your various sauces, to make it spicy or sweet, whatever you like - John's is always something with teriyaki, for example.  They grill it up and return it to your table and it's perfection because you exactly designed it yourself.  I think Flat Top in particular is just an Illinois thing, but the concept is widespread.  In Iowa it was a HuHot Mongolian grill, and that chain is all over the country.  So I highly recommend finding one near you, because it's delicious.  And since John is a typical Midwestern meat and potatoes guy, and I'm a hugely picky eater (vegan, no sugar, no white carbs, etc.), it's some place we can actually agree on and both enjoy.

THREE.

Instagram's Mute Option.  You've always been able to mute stories, but the newest update I finally installed allows you to mute all posts from anyone you follow.  Which I appreciate, because I don't want to unfollow everyone but I also don't want to see all their posts.  Like my friends who only post pictures of their human babies.  They're my friends, I don't want to hurt their feelings and unfollow them, but I also don't ever, ever hit the like button on a picture of a baby (because it's weird, and I don't like them), and I never will sooo... it's just better that they not pop up in my feed!  Everyone wins.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  You can also join me on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.  In addition to minimalism and organizing, I love all things 'real life' so use the hashtag #notentirelyperfect on social media so I can see your beautifully unstaged life.  On the top of the side bar to your right, you can follow me on Bloglovin or subscribe via e-mail to be alerted to each new post.
