Rainy Days!

Hello friends! How's your weekend been treating ya?

It's been pretty restful over here, but a little rainy! We've got a lot of rain and clouds in the forecast these next couple of days, so I thought I'd share some of the best ways to spend your rainy days starting with the very best rainy day playlist:

Rainy Day Playlist: 

Banana Pancakes: Jack Johnson
This Years Love: David Gray
Babylon: David Gray
Keep it Lose, Keep it Tight: Amos Lee
Windows are Rolled Down: Amos Lee
Gravity: John Mayer
Colors: Amos Lee
Falling Slowly: Glen Hansard/Marketa Irglova
You are the Best Thing: Ray LaMontagne
Sail Away: David Gray
Imagine: Jack Johnson
Why Georgia: John Mayer
Dance with Me Baby: Ben Rector
Better Together: Jack Johnson

And while you're listening to Banana Pancakes on a rainy day, you might as well whip some of those up too!

This recipe is pretty great.

Another rainy day favorite is to read a good book and drink a looooot of coffee.

I've been reading the 5 Levels of Leadership by John Maxwell and it's a good one. I've been in some really great and some not-so-great leadership environments and I've learned a lot from both, so this book has really set my heart on fire to learn how to lead better.

And while you're reading, you might as well be snacking too! Rainy days are perfect cookie baking weather. Or maybe cookie-bar baking weather. I made this recipe in 2014, and haven't made it since (which is a tragedy because these are INCREDIBLE) You should whip of some of these Chocolate Chip Mud-hen Bars on your rainy day...

Also, we definitely pushed our couches together and made a mega-couch and invited all of our friends over this rainy day weekend. I suggest to do that too.

And then watch a rainy day movie!
Here's a good Rainy Day Movie List to start from:

1. Clueless
2. One Fine Day
3. Father of the Bride
4. Harry Potter
5. Dirty Dancing
6. The Breakfast Club
7. Singin' in the Rain
8. Breakfast at Tiffany's
9. The Princess Diaries
10. Forrest Gump

 Do you have anymore rainy day suggestions? I'd love to hear them!
Happy weekending, friends!
