It's Cass' Favorite Things!

Hey there!

So, last week I wrote my VERY FIRST BLOG POST. Yeah, kind of a big deal (to me at least). The truth is that the only reason why I published that post was to have an idea of how my posts will look as I was setting up the layout of my blog.

You see, I'm not typically a spontaneous person. I like to think ahead, plan, and plan some more. That's why I currently have six blog posts waiting in the wings until I finally decide that they are good enough to publish. Those are my "real" blog posts, the ones that show you all my super cool projects and share with you my favorite tips.

However, until those lovely posts are ready, I did want to publish another post in the the mean time. Any one who's reading this definitely doesn't know much about me based on just the one post I have published, so I want to share with you... CASS' FAVORITE THINGS!

Please tell me you get the HIMYM reference, if so, you'll enjoy this...

If we're going to get to know each other, you must know, I am a TINY bit obsessed with all things HIMYM (almost as much as Harry Potter... almost)

Unfortunately, I'm not Barney Stinson and I cannot give you all free velour track suits (or lap dances for that matter) but I can share with you a few of my favorite things, which is even more awesome than free stuff! Okay, maybe not quite, but close!

I'm so unpredictable, I'll probably hate all of these things by this time next week, but for now, here's what I'm lovin' up on...

The Walking Dead

When I'm not re-watching Harry Potter or HIMYM, I do enjoy a bit of the post-apocalypse action-filled drama. The fact that season 5 does not come out until October has me in shambles. I'm dying to find out what happened to Beth and I just watched a teaser trailer that seemed to imply that she's still alive... here's to hoping!

My Dog

Okay, so this is the only thing on the list that I can guarantee I will not hate by next week. Also, know now that I plan on taking every chance I get to share pictures of my boy, take it or leave it. I love him and it's not going to stop. I love him even more when he's swimming because, let's face it, he's 14 and the fact that he can still swim like a champ is a victory in and of itself...

Here's another... I'm obsessed. #sorrynotsorry

Sam Adams Summer Ale

Best. Beer. Ever. 'nough said.

This Teaser Trailer...

Mockingjay Part I comes out in NOVEMEBER. Guys, this is big, real big. Of course the movies are never as good as the books, but I was pleasantly surprised by the first two movies, so I have high hopes for this one. Please don't disappoint me J. Law!

Beyond IQ by Garth Sundem 

So I signed up on a website to get free books in exchange for blog reviews. This is the first book I chose to get and I am about half way through. It's a self-help book that teaches you to think outside of the box and train your mind to think more critically.  I won't talk too much about it since I'll be writing a full review later, but it did make my list of favorite things, so obviously it's awesome. I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Plus, there's a sneak preview of my latest project back there. Post coming soon! 

That was this week's edition of Cass' Favorite Things (who knows, maybe it will really be a weekly thing, no promises though). Thanks for watching! Let me know what your favorite things are in the comments below! Also, any advice or comments on my blog in general would be much appreciated!
