Friday Faves: 5 Things Giving Me Life Right Now {Jessica}


Coastal Bend Mom Collective | 5 Friday Faves

In a season of parenting that feels super stressful our team is excited to share some of our favorite things making us happy right now. Some things helping us get through the days.

Hola! We made it through another week! FRIDAY!! I don’t know about y’all, but it has been really crazy lately. Between virtual learning and hurricane tracking (madness). I’m also going to school myself, so I have homework taking up my time, along with mommy duties. So when I get a chance for some me-time it is a blessing.

Here are FIVE things that are giving me life right now.


I recently bought the new addition to the Twilight series, Midnight Sun. I haven’t had a chance to really get that far yet, but I am looking forward to it. I’ve always been “Team Jacob,” but I don’t mind reading about Edward. It feels like not that long ago I was obsessed with the books and movies. This just takes me back to a simpler time.

The Book Midnight Sun


Ever since I was a little girl I used to sit with my grandma and my mom watching soap operas. When I get a chance to have some TV time, I catch up on my novelas. The storyline on General Hospital lately has really touched me. Normally I love the overdramatic, crazy stories, but these past weeks they have been doing an Alzheimer’s storyline. It was tastefully and realistically done.


I try listening to writing podcasts every now and then. I like to pick up writing tips to improve my writing. Right now, I am listening to Writing Class Radio. People can send in personal essays and they read them on the podcast.


If were in a non-pandemic time I’d be picking up Starbucks at school (I go to TAMUCC), but I’ve got all online classes this semester. So I rely on my Keurig and my peppermint mocha creamer that I pour in my coffee (to keep me in a festive mood).
