I wanted to write but didn’t know where to start. Luckily Christy’s regular post theme helped me out this morning.
Feeling… tired. but aren’t we all? It feels like such a cop out saying that.
Reading… the House of Hilton. Well, to be fair, I haven’t started it yet but it came in the mail yesterday. I’m saving it for when I go on vacation in twelve days (but who’s counting?) The ladies of the real housewives podcast I listen to have both read it and talk about it on the reg and it has gotten me curious. I love pop culture and family histories so this just seems like the perfect easy/trashy/interesting read. I need to know more about Kim, Kyle, and Kathy! (the OG “K” name fam)
Drinking… this smoothie made of avocado, strawberries, spinach, banana, OJ, and a dash of pink Himalayan sea salt.
Watching… what am I not watching honestly. OKAY so we got GIRLS, Broad City, Survivor, Real Housewives of Potomac, the Bachelor, Downton Abbey, the Tonight Show, and I’m slowly chipping away at Frasier.Listening to… Kanye’s new album or Rihanna’s new album nonstop. They’re both like crazy good. I’m able to ignore Kanye’s lame lyrics about Taylor Swift because he gives a shout out to both Arthur the Aardvark and Jimmy Fallon + the Roots in other songs. The good references outweigh the annoying ones.
Thinking about… the really hot shower and early bedtime I’m going to bask in later tonight.
Working on… trying to figure out where this blog is going, what its purpose is, and what kind of content I want to shine through most.Needing… an eighth day of the week. I swear, I need just like one more day a week to get done everything I want to get done. I read this blurb somewhere that said, when you have a full time job, you have to choose three of the following- work, sleep, family, fitness, friends- when trying to balance your life outside of work. You can’t have them all. And while I understand this logic and see where it totally makes sense…I also refuse to pick. I want to do all those things and then some! This is where that eighth day comes in…
Wanting… warmer weather so I can ride my bike to work! We’ve been so blessed with an easy winter this year- we’ve had some 50-60 degree days scattered throughout January and February. This means I can break out my bike and ride! It’s so much better than riding the T.Excited about…vacation! Like I said, its in twelve days and I’m stocked to have some time off from work and to explore a new place with Will. We’re going to Park City Utah to watch some good friends get married and inevitably see some people from college we haven’t seen in forever. I think we’re going to go skiing… which is both exciting and terrifying seeing as I haven’t skied since fifth grade and I sucked at it.
Loving… this blend of essential oils that has really been helping me calm down at night and fall asleep. I made a mixture of rosemary, peppermint, lavender, myrrh, and frankincense essential oils in some avocado oil and put it into a little roller ball empty glass applicator. I’ve been putting it on my temples, the bottoms of my feet, and the skin outside my thyroid and adrenals like an hour before trying to go to sleep every night. I gave a container of the mixture to my grandmother as part of her birthday present this week too!
