loving: being home with my sweet family. i got quite the welcome from both EBN and ABN and while it was so fun to be away, there is simply no place i would rather be, than right here. i’ve been indulging in extra hugs and kisses from both the BNs and it’s been pretty nice. (although EBN isn’t such a fan of when ABN and i snuggle close. i think she feels left out – as evidenced by the quivering lower lip that seems to pop out whenever ABN and i get too close. it’s equal parts hysterical and inspiring – clearly the only way to get her passed this “issue” is to expose her to more of it. i think ABN and i are up for the challenge.)
reading: i mentioned that i bought THIS book while in the minnesota airport during my layover on sunday. i’m not sure why i reached for it over the other options – it wasn’t on a list of mine. but every now and then i pick something up and can’t seem to put it down until i’m finished. it helps that i had a good 4 hours of reading time on the flight home – and even though i’ve only read for a couple of hours since returning, i’ll finish it in the next day or so for sure. it’s about a group of friends who went to college together who are reuniting for a week in paradise, some 15 years later. as you can probably guess – trouble ensues in the form of adultery, an allergy to shell fish and a hurricane – just to name a few. it’s not great – and i’m pretty sure there is no character that i’m rooting for (i hate that). i’ll take on Where’d You Go Bernadette (which i started on my red-eye but then my kindle died) next and then THIS.
watching: oh you know me. a little of this, a little of that. Nashville continues to rank number 1 as far as i’m concerned. i’m pretty much over Scandal (because i’m not sure there is a like-able character, see above….) although i love me some scott foley for no good reason other than it broke my heart when he and jennifer garner broke just because she got famous (i mean, i’ve always assumed). we’re two weeks behind on Mad Men which causes great anxiety in my life. i live in fear of the spoilers and at the same time i need.to.know. in reality tv news, i’m watching Best Ink on oxygen and i’m not one bit embarassed to admit.
listening to: volume two of the Nashville soundtrack. whatever, i’m obsessed. that show can do no wrong. i want rayna’s hair, scarlett’s wardrobe, juilette’s house (really, any of them up until this point) and deacon…plain and simple.
eating: i just made myself some chicken salad and it was absolutely delicious. hit.the.spot.
working on: letting things go, enjoying the moment, not anticipating what’s coming next, focusing on the people in my life that make me happy.
looking forward to: this weekend. it’s mother’s day and we’re headed to sacramento for two nights for a special family adventure. an outdoor swimming pool, the train museum and a trip to the zoo are in our future. can’t think of a better way to celebrate being a mama!
thanks again, Danielle, for the inspiration behind these posts.Read More
