Enjoying…running and working out with my friend/co-worker/running buddy on our lunch break. It’s so nice to work with people you like to spend time with!
Planning…oh so many things! What’s my next fitness goal after the 5K? What I am serving for Thanksgiving? (I’m hosting — eek!) Maybe a little blog facelift? (Do people even look at blogs anymore or just read through blog readers?)
Excited for…a Monday holiday in November (thank you, veterans!) that is going to let me make an extended visit to my hometown to see my mom and dad and my newest niece.
Cooking…quick, easy, and healthy dinners. As much as I love to branch out and try interesting, complex new recipes, I’m having to restrain myself lately. Next up? Skillet lasagna. I’ve never made it before, but I’ve been assured that it is easy, weeknight-dinner-quick, and family-approved.
Watching…(or wishing I was watching) new fall TV shows (oh Scandal, you are so scandalous! Nashville, you’re piling up in my DVR but I don’t have enough time for all these hour-long dramas… so sad.) I was really bummed to hear that Parks & Rec is going on hiatus, which I think is TV-code for quietly getting cancelled. Treat Yo Self day, DJ Roomba, and a vast number of Ron Swanson-isms will live on in my pop-culture vocabulary for many years to come.
Listening…to the wonderful mix old hymns and new indie-folk worship songs at Wesley Downtown. You can follow on Spotifyhere, but here are a couple of songs I’m currently loving: You Have Won Me and Oceans.
Reading…not much, sadly. I have a stack of books on my nightstand that I’d really like to read, but I’ve been choosing sleep over reading these days. I have found a couple of good new-to-me blogs, though! Putting Me Together is a fashion blog by someone who shops at the same kind of stores I do (Target, Loft, etc.), not just expensive designers or boutique brands. The Mother Company is a parenting blog (motto: “Helping Parents Raise Good People”) that recently ran a good series on teaching kids about safety in a non-scary, non-creepy way.
Fitness-ing…I’ve been all about getting back into running this month as I prepare for my first post-baby 5K this weekend!
Snapping… pics of my 3 year old in his Halloween costume! He’s dressing up as a cowboy and he’ll be riding a stick horse between houses for trick-or-treating tomorrow. Too fun. (And of course, I’ve been working on my photos for the One Community link-up on November 5. The words for November are gratitude, fun, blue and home. You’re joining us, right?)
