Well I’m certainly glad it’s Friday, are you?
I know I mentioned this a few days ago, but it has been a very long week. Long in the sense of overly productive; the time seemed to go quite fast, actually.
So what am I looking forward to this weekend?
Well, a MUCH needed hair appointment on Saturday and then catching up with one of my best friends over dinner at a restaurant I’ve been dying to try for years. (More on that later)
Sunday, I’ll be playing catch up with some work projects since next week, I’m getting ready for my Chicago trip. Excited doesn’t even begin to explain my feelings about this upcoming venture. Chelsey and I have a countdown going and remind each other every day that the time is getting nearer.
So last week I started my first round of a new series that I called, Friday Confessions. I simply wanted to do a lighthearted post on some insignificant thoughts that grace my mind during the week and it sort of turned into an open window for hate comments. Not at all what I intended but I digress.
I’m going to try this again in hopes that my points are not taken as serious as they were in the last version. Again, I’m simply trying to convey that I am a real person, having real thoughts- some are valid and others are just plain pointless but sometimes, it just feels good to get things off your chest.
So here we go with round two, hopefully a bit more uneventful than round one!
Confession #1 -
As much as I love to take pictures of my food, my photography skills (or lack there of) are entirely self-taught. I’m such an amateur and although I’ve spent significant time reading tutorials and watching youtube videos, I’ve never fully engaged myself in a professional class. I did take film photography in high school but obviously, things have changed since then. Because I have so much free time on my hands (insert sarcasm here), I decided to sign up for a photography class through a local recreation department. My first class was last Tuesday and I’m still confused. Here’s hoping the next session will actually start to make sense for me.
I found this at Whole Foods and wished I hadn’t. Just what I need, another granola in my life. But to its defense, it’s really really good. I swear, gingerbread seems to be making a commendable attempt to overtake the pumpkin craze this year. And I can’t believe I’m about to say this but, I’m starting to think I may be quick to buy in to it. First the gingerbread K-cups and now granola. Let’s see what else they come out with to fuel my seasonal food fixation.
I’ve only had a handful of moments when I’ve looked down at my tattoo and thought, “What the hell did I do?” It still feels slightly temporary, but I’m starting to grow into it and accept it as a permanent mark on my body. I really do love it.
Nothing makes me more happy than opening a fresh jar of almond butter. It’s like opening a little piece of heaven on Christmas morning.
Meet my new lunch obsession. Chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, avocado, hummus and feta; all of these things together in one bowl will give you superpowers. Okay, maybe not superpowers but it will give you incredible happiness. It’s delicious!
I’ve been to Starbucks every single day this week. I blame it on the red cups.
My dinner last night (at 9PM) consisted of a bowl of protein oatmeal, followed by two bowls of cereal. For those of you that think I don’t eat carbs, you are incredibly wrong.
I am LOVING this new bad, Lord Huron. One of my spin participants knows how into music I am and brought me a copy of their cd. I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since. For those of you that like The Lumineers, The Head and The Heart, and/or Of Monsters and Men, you’ll dig them too!
Speaking of good music, Mumford and Sons tickets go on sale today at 10:00am. If you are able to get tickets to any of their east coast shows and need someone to go with, I’ll owe you my life!
Have a great weekend everyone!
