Cooked. Back to healthy meals and low carb dinners for us after the ridiculousness that was the holidays. I made one new meal- chicken shawarma, and one standby- grilled shrimpies with bang bang sauce. Love them both!
Walked Finn in eighty degree weather. The sun is setting a teeny bit later, and we’ve enjoyed really perfect weather this week, so our walks have stretched a bit longer just cause they can.
Listened to the Where’d You Go, Bernadette audiobook. This book so far is really cute anddd it’s voiced by Kathleen Wilhoite aka Luke’s sister from Gilmore Girls. The only problem is that my library only rents out audiobooks for 21 days, and I feel like I don’t have time to finish it. Does anyone else feel like listening to audiobooks actually takes so much longer than just reading one?
Got sucked into the couch/phone/social media Bermuda triangle where time disappears instead of ships.
Watched President Obama’s farewell address and lost it when I saw Malia crying. I sure am grateful for his service and the example he was. I’m terrible at goodbyes, so the tears weren’t exactly a surprise for me.
Planned some trips. We are headed to Marfa in March and Steamboat and LA in May. So looking forward to all three for every different reasons! We’ll have local hosts in Steamboat and in LA, but Marfa will be just the two of us and I need your recommendations! What are the must-sees? The must-eats?
Filled up my new planters with plants, as evidenced in my instagram post. I cannot say enough about the quality of these planters, especially at their low price. The blush pink is so good. My one quibble is that they don’t come with drainage holes, but I added my own by wacking the bottom of them with a hammer. Therapeutic and pretty!
Diffused peppermint oil while working. I recently got this diffuser after searching high and low for one that I liked the look of (you can see it in this instagram.) Peppermint has been my go-to this week for two reasons: 1) it feels invigorating and helps me get into work mode and 2) it’s the only one I’ve actually been able to smell, thanks to cedar fever and a perpetually runny nose.
Sneezed one hundred billion times thanks to the aforementioned cedar fever. It’s the first thing I do when I wake up. It’s the last thing I do before I go to sleep. Sneezing is me now.
Watched The OA. Some parts I kind of roll my eyes at but the way they are telling the story is just so darn captivating. The pros far outweigh the cons, for me.
Thought about blogging. I’ve been pretty busy with my full time job bleeding into a couple of my nights this week, and I’ll be out half of next week at a conference for said full-time job, so I haven’t made a ton of progress on creating new content. But I have *thought* about it! And also thought about what type of posts would be fun to create on a regular basis going forward. Anything you’d love to see?
