Since it has been such a long time since I’ve really been on here I thought I would do a little update on what I’ve been up to lately, so here goes nothing…
Cooking: Sweet potato “burgers” – The prep is a little lengthy, but so worth it. All the flavors come together perfectly, making these savory yet slightly sweet patties a hit with everyone…even my one year old! And they freeze well which is always a win.
Reading: June, Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
Project in the works: When we bought our house what really helped close the deal was the unfinished carriage house above our garage. We are finally finishing this out and fingers crossed by Monday it should be a livable studio apartment!
Lusting after: A full night of sleep, Jackson used to sleep through the night but something changed when he turned one…and I need my eight hours of sleep!
Looking forward to: Glass Animals concert
Watching: Big Little Lies – I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed this mini-series. I usually don’t like adaptations of books I’ve read, but they’ve done a really good job in this one.
Listening to: Up and Vanished Podcast…if you were as obsessed with the first season of Serial as I was go download this now! It follows the cold case of Tara Grinstead who went missing almost 12 years ago now, and no one was ever arrested and her body was never found. The podcast is told through the voice of documentary filmmaker Payne Lindsay as he’s investigating it in real time – and there are huge breaks in the case.
Goal for April: Work out regularly, my goal is for at least 3x a week. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but with traveling for work and sharing daycare drop-off/pick-up duties it’s tough to steal an hour to myself.
Planning: A family vacation for the fall – any and all suggestions welcome
