It took forever….seriously..forever…but we made it to Friday!!
Last night was “get stuff done” night, so I cleaned the house from top to bottom while Riley went grocery shopping. Annoying to do it during the week after a long day, but so worth it that tonight I get to come home to a clean house and food in the kitchen to start the weekend! My brain is fried, so I have very little of substance to discuss today. I will, however, share some things I’ve been obsessing over and loving this week.
1) Tortellini & Broccoli soup
On Monday, I made a big pot of this soup by Sarah over at Making Thyme for Health. I made a couple small swaps in terms of broth and spices based on what I had, but basically followed the whole recipe. It’s a winner, let me tell you! I’ve eaten it for lunch almost every day this week. I think I made too much, but it’s seriously worth it. I’m having it again today.
2) Flowers from Riley
I love him. He apparently “heard in my voice” that I could use them. I guess hours buried under data at work will make you sound like a zombie.
2) EOS Lip balm
I keep wracking my brain trying to figure out why this lip balm is different from other lip balms. It’s not. It’s just a whole lot more fun to put on, cause it’s round.
4) This article- Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid. I saw this article all over the internet yesterday and I loved it. It really reminded me of a lot of the people I’ve met lately in the blogging world: strong, supportive, resilient, and willing to work for what they want. I know a lot of bloggers out there have had setbacks, challenges, or injuries lately that required throwing the plan out the window. As we all know, mental strength is just as important to running (or any other workout) as physical strength and I’m always so impressed with how strong you all are!
5) These sweet potato tortilla chips
They sell these in the dining area right outside my office and they. are. addictive. They’re the perfect snack when you’re craving salty and crunchy and they have all wholesome, real ingredients. I could eat them every day!
As for my weekend plans, I’m super happy to report that I have none. I have major plans to stay in, catch up on all my favorite tv shows, snuggle with the pets, make a massive breakfast at home, nap, read, and nap some more. I may throw in some productivity and a workout at some point. Or I may park the tv on Lifetime Movie Network and not move for hours on end. Either way, I think I’ll be happy.
Hope you all have a great day and an even better weekend!
