For some reason, I feel like this week is really dragging. Maybe because the weekend went by so quickly I was in denial about Monday. I walked in to the office like…didn’t we just do this??? It is always weird to me when months line up the same. Like all the dates in February fall on the same day of the week as in March. It really had me mixed up in my iPhone calendar when I was adding appointments for March in February. Anyways, I am babbling. Linking up with Kristen and Gretch!

Reading: Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld – I saw that my library had this available and picked it up on a whim. I added it to Goodreads and saw Kristen rated it very high. Her and I are basically  book twins so I knew I would love it too! So far, so good!

Eligible (The Austen Project, #4)

Watching: The usual: The Good Doctor, 9-1-1, The Resident, Riverdale, Blue Bloods, Big Bang Theory, the Chicago shows, SVU, Modern Family, This is Us, Greys, Scandal. Lots and lots of Vampirina and Puppy Dog Pals too! Zoe is obsessed. I actually think Vampirina is super cute and the theme song gets stuck in my head forever and ever.

Cooking: This week we are having turkey burgers, taco soup, pork chops and burrito bowls. Yum yum yummy! I have made my favorite Mediterranean CousCous for lunches and pairing it with an apple and some turkey sausage. Laura and I have a healthy lunch trip planned somewhere for today. Trying to avoid the chocolate chip cookies we baked on Sunday.

Working: OUT! Finally!!! I mentioned Monday that I ran for the first time in nearly two years. I quit running when I found out I was pregnant, and stuck to walking and low impact workouts and haven’t really hopped back on the hard core wagon since. I ran Monday and Tuesday, and did weights Wednesday. My toe already hurts from my darn running shoes after two days, and my hips are kindly reminded me that I am old. I am going to keep going though! I love the endorphins from a good sweat!

Loving: While I hate my damn allergies, I sort of love seeing all the tree  lined streets this week! I will just appreciate them with my windows rolled up while downing a box of Claritin! I am afraid that poor Zoe has picked up mine and Chris’s terrible allergies.

Pinning: All the St Patrick’s Day and Easter toddler crafts. Laura and I are planning another craft day in a few weeks to do something fun with the kiddos. I can’t wait! Maybe her and I can find another fun craft for ourselves too. I am still loving the marble trays we made last month.

Not much else going on really. I am slammed at work and coming home completely exhausted every day this week. It is better that we are busy than not, but still! I have a hair appointment booked for the 17th. I can’t wait to get my hair done! I am looking rough these days. I am not sure what I am doing yet. I want a change.

What are you up to?

    Getting back on the workout train is so hard! I keep dipping in and out of BBG. UGH those trees are so pretty but they smell and kill my allergies! Can’t believe that everything is blooming already! Can’t wait to see what craft you two come up with next.

    We are having turkey burgers tonight and man that taco soup looks amazing. Oh how I love it. You’re so funny, “looking rough these days”…but it will feel so good to get your hair done, you’ll feel like a new woman! Work it girl, way to get back to it!! xo

    Oh gosh, I really need to work out more. I’m in dance classes, but that’s about it. I AM planning on joining a gym this month to hopefully check out some of their classes, etc. I have Eligible to read at some point – I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

    I liked Eligible but I would have probably liked it more if I could have stopped comparing it all the time to the original P&P. I’m not sure adaptations of the classics are my thing.
    I think the exercise endorphins is what I missed most when I was pregnant! Glad you’re back at it. 🙂

    I’m so glad that you are getting back into working out and the endorphins!! The endorphins!! Haha, and I love the shout outs to Vampirina and the puppy show. Isn’t having kids wonderful?! 🙂 I can’t wait for our craft day – going to be so fun!

    Find you a yoga video to add to that workout regimen and you hips will thank you. That is something I have learned is a thing you need in order to enjoy working out in your 30’s. Go you for keeping it up! Your menu this week sounds great! I need to check out that book, sounds good.

    I feel like I might be the only person that was kind of glad to have my regular shows back after the Olympics because I just don’t care for the Winter Olympics that much. I loved getting to watch This Is Us on Tuesday! And way to go on getting back into running again! I need to attempt to do that sometime soon, but I just can’t make myself…

    I love that you ran this week. I need to get my butt back to some motivation to actually do more for myself in that department. I love that you’re going to have another craft day, that will be so fun! I just feel so behind with St. Patrick’s day around the corner and Easter on its tail. Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  • Reply StephTheBookworm March 1, 2018 at 12:52 pm

    Yay for getting back to working out and running! I finally got back into working out about a month ago. The pregnancy motivated me to be healthier and I want to gain a minimal amount this time.

    Also slammed and coming home exhausted. It’s a tough season!

  • Reply Alexandra March 2, 2018 at 9:47 am

    I definitely want to read Eligible someday! 🙂 Kristen really does give good book recommendations. I think everyone loves them. LOL. St. Patrick’s Day is my favorite, I hope that you get to do some fun crafts! Girl, I am always amazed by your healthy cooking… I am lucky if I cook period… let alone healthy meals. We’ll see I am buying stuff for mason jar salads again, so that should be a good change of pace and healthy for next week. 🙂 I need to catch up on Riverdale. I have a ton on the DVR. XO – Alexandra

    Vampirina, never heard of it…but my youngest is 16 & watching cop shows on YouTube & Gordon Ramsey. Tee hee!

  • Reply Audrey March 2, 2018 at 11:22 am

    This week has seriously lasted a lifetime.
    That Vampirina show looks adorable. I caught an episode of The Good Doctor a few weeks ago and loved it. I might fall down that rabbit hole soon and start from the top!
    Hope you guys have a great weekend!!

  • Reply Akaleistar March 2, 2018 at 1:49 pm

    Yeah for running again! Eligible sounds interesting, so I may have to get it from the library 🙂

  • Reply Heather March 5, 2018 at 12:30 pm

    Oh such a bummer about your allergies but those trees ARE beautiful!! I hope you love Eligible! I think it is still probably my favourite P&P adaptation. SO readable!!!
