Today I’m participating in Wine and Love, where we review our week and say what we loved and what caused us to reach for our wine glasses. If you’d like to join us, you can link up through Suki, of Super Duper Fantastic!
What has me reaching for my wine glass…
*B is gone for two weeks. I know, not that big of a deal but I miss him. 8 more days. Not that I’m counting or anything…
*BiSC is this weekend and a lot of my friends and fellow bloggers are on their way to Vegas. And I’m not. Again. One of these years I will make it, hopefully before I’m 40. I do hope everyone has a great time and I can’t wait to hear all about it and see all the crazy pictures!
*I have not been sleeping well at all lately. I’m guessing the change of the weather combined with travel and being busy has caused my insomnia to come out full force. It sucks. But for the first time, not stress related. (Which is a good thing!)
*I’m adjusting to having a new roommate. She is very nice and I’m glad I won’t go broke living alone in my two bedroom apartment so it really isn’t a whine. It’s just hard adjusting to someone new. I don’t feel like I can be comfortable in my own space just yet. I’m hoping I will be as lucky as I have been in the past with this roommate!
*All this has left me a little grouchy. At least it’s almost the weekend.
Things I am loving…
*Despite B being gone for so long, I’m finally getting some much needed me time. With all the traveling and visitors and working overtime, I feel like I haven’t had a chance to just hang out and just be at my apartment. Granted, I haven’t had that yet with a new roommate moving in and having to adjust to having a stranger in my house again, but it’s going to happen. Soon.
*I’m up to three miles in my running! I’m half way to my goal. I want to be at least at five miles by Tuesday. Let’s see if I can do this. And for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m participating in CouchTo10k. Don’t know that one? It’s when you sign up for a 10k two weeks before it happens and you haven’t ran in three years. Basically, CouchTo5k on crack.
*B and I cooked three delicious recipes this past weekend–a salmon dish with mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes, eggs in a red pepper (a recipe I found through We Are Not Martha), and then a green curry (that was green only because out of five stores, we could not find red curry paste!). We cook a LOT together instead of eating out and I really enjoy it. This is coming from the girl who loves to eat out.
*I’m reading Tina Fey’s Bossypants. It may be making me burst out into hysterical giggling randomly. I love her.
*That I can blog on my phone. I’ve found that I have more inspiration to write while at work so I’m able to crank out a post when I get the urge (and have the time). I’m just thankful for autocorrect.
*I hosted Nicole’s Odd Tuesday Potluck this week and it was so fun! I made Chocolate Avocado mousse that I found on Vanilla Garlic’s blog, my new favorite food blog. Combined with Margot’s Angel Food cake with strawberries and whipped cream, it was PERFECT. We didn’t even plan it! Nicole’s watermelon gazpacho was also divine.
*B got me a hammock for my birthday!! And it arrived yesterday!!!!!! I can’t wait to use it but first I have to find an affordable stand…anyone know of any?
What are you loving this week, and what has you reaching for your wine glass?
