I haven't done one of these posts in ages, so I thought now might be a good time to share what's going on currently...
Reading...First Women: The Grace and Power of America's Modern First Ladies by Kate Andersen Brower. Or rather, I should say that I was reading it. This was one of my library books and I was really excited to read it. But then I went to the library and got some new books and was sucked into a series before I opened this book. Before I knew it, I had to return this book (yesterday) and could not renew, because someone has a hold on it. I made it about 1/3 of the way and it's so very interesting. It's taking me a bit longer to read than my normal books, but I plan to check it out again when available. If you have any interest in politics, specifically the first ladies, I would recommend it!
Watching...The Olympics, as is everyone else. I am not quite as into it with swimming done, but it's still the Olympics!
Cooking...I tried a "new to me" recipe from Pinterest this week. I actually blogged about it before here, but never got around to make it. I have to be honest, I wasn't a huge fan. I had high expectations because it seemed SO easy and healthy. It could have been my veggies combo (red onions, squash and corn), but even with using more seasoning that the recipe called for, it felt like the flavor just wasn't there.
Eating...While I did finish the above mentioned recipe fail, Thai Burgers have also been on the menu this week. I had a few patties in the freezer that I was able to pull out and then paired with my favorite green beans.
Wearing...my favorite Loft pants, paired with these strappy heels (both on sale!). I originally bought these shoes to wear for more dressy occasions, but I love them for work. I can't get over how comfortable they are!
Working out...I usually stick to cardio - treadmill, elliptical and bike, but I know I need to add in different exercises to see more results. I hope to integrate this work out from Honey We're Home into my weekly routine.
Buying...essentials. My no spend month is in full effect and I am sticking to it, at least so far. I did spot the Essie Gel line at Target last time I was there, which was hard to resist. I do feel like I could argue that not having to do my nails as often could be something necessary, but I think that would be grasping for straws just a little bit.
Wishing...Jackson Thomas a happy first birthday! I cannot believe my little godson/nephew is one! Time just flies!
