May Blogging Challenge Days 22-26
Sleep | In My Fridge | Morning | Sign | Opposites | Feet | Today
I blame the long weekend on me losing my blogging groove! I did a pretty good job of unplugging for Memorial Day and since the work week started back up again, my job has been my main priority because I have a lot going on. Lo siento for being absent-o but I swear I didn’t fall of the face of the earth of anything! Still alive.But real talk- I feel like I had a real weekend for the first time in forever. My best friend Rachel was staying with me and visiting for Memorial Day and it was so awesome to have her here. She’s the kind of friend that you don’t have to rearrange your life for- but you can just live your life and they’re perfectly content bumming right alongside you. So basically, I got to do all the things I would normally do and love to do here in DC- but with a lady friend with me every step of the way. It was fantastic.
I got plenty of much needed sleep.
I spent a significant amount of time out in the sun every single day (I think Rachel and I exclaimed fifty bajillion times how perfect the weather was this past weekend). And I got a decent tan going on! There was urban hiking, stand up paddle boarding, and lots of walking around.I went grocery shopping and cooked. Here’s a little peak in my fridge:(lots of watermelon, swiss chard, roasted sweet potatoes, dinner leftovers, organic grapes, cooked peas and asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, lots of green stuff in the drawers below, lemons, limes, carrots, chicken thighs, grass fed beef chuck roast, breakfast chicken sausage, prosciutto, Epic jerky, coconut milk, coconut flour, maple water, canned pumpkin and Will’s milk + greek yogurt. plus some other stuff)(the door is filled with some Paleochef sauces, all fruit jams, pasture raised eggs for Will, some Tessamae dressings, coconut aminos, fish sauce, Sir Kensington ketchup, apple cider vinegar, old tahini, horseradish, worcestershire, butter from grass fed cows, lime juice, and mustard)
And this week- well- the weather has decided to go from perfect to the complete opposite. It’s wicked hot and humid. Helllllllo DC summer. Its like 90 degrees with a 50% chance of late afternoon storms erry single day. Lame. I decided to exercise outside this morning- holy cow. I don’t know why I did that. Yes, lets sprint and jump around in swimming pool humidity. Sounds like a smart idea. But last night- on my way home from work, I saw one of the perks of late spring // early summer storms- a beautiful rainbow!For work, I’ve been rocking loose fitted pants (can’t wear shorts at work) + flowy sleeveless blouses all week to survive. Oh, and of course my birks. They’re a must.Feet shot!
Denim + neutrals + pale pinks and nudes + pops of bright color is my favorite look this time of year. And its what I’m wearing today!As I said earlier, this week is redonkulously busy with work. I have a big event on Saturday that I’m excited for- but also… I can’t wait for it to be over so that I can breathe more normally. Plus, I have a celebration date with a gal pal (I just aged fifty years with that expression, right?) that Saturday night for Mexican food + seeing Pitch Perfect 2.
But seeing Pitch Perfect 2 would require me to see the OG Pitch Perfect… which believe it or not, I have never seen! Shock! Not on purpose- it just never happened. I don’t have to be at work today until after noon so I took advantage of my free morning and FINALLY watched that movie. How have I never seen it before?! It was thoroughly enjoyable. I love a good cheesy, funny chick flick.Really not a fan of that girl projectile vomiting though during I saw the sign. That was a surprise I was not prepared to see while eating breakfast this morning.
Nonetheless, love the Bellas. Anna Kendrick has been a girl crush of mine since Up in the Air (movie with George Clooney from like 2009) and so anything with her featured gets an A+ in my book.
Keep it wicked healthy.
