One of my blog readers, Chelsea, left a post request a week ago and I thought it was a fun post idea! She suggested a “what you’ve been …” post with what I’ve been watching, listening to, dinner or lunches I’ve been into, etc… just the the normal day to day things I’m enjoying! So here we go!
What I’ve been…
Watching: Game of Thrones (I just started…the verdict is still out), plus my usuals — Nashville, Scandal, New Girl, The Mindy Project and Revenge (I don’t even like Revenge anymjore but I can’t stop watching it!)
Listening to: Yes, Please by Amy Poehler and Bon Iver for good chill music (such good music for long plane rides!)
Eating for breakfast: steel cut oats topped with a little salt, a little maple syrup and pecans. Best comfort food on these cold mornings! (Here’s a simple how to cook steel cut oats tutorial if you’re new to them!). The sweet & salty combo with salt and maple syrup is sooo good.
Eating for lunch: leftover Thai food (see below)
Eating for dinner: Thai food. All of the Thai food. And sushi. All of the sushi. However, I finally ate something other than Thai or sushi tonight. It was a salad with spinach, arugula, roasted butternut squash, goat cheese, toasted pecans, dried bing cherries and a vinaigrette with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey. (Those are Food for Life Gluten-free English Muffins – TERRIBLE. Don’t buy them. I had to coat them in honey to make them edible.)
Drinking: Honey cinnamon lattes on the weekends and decaf coffee at night. It’s a nice change from hot tea when I’m winding down! I’ve also been loving bourbon now that it’s gotten so cold out!
Loving: my friends and family. Seriously. The. Best.
Hating: the lack of daylight and colder temps
Smiling at: this little fall corner on my table. I’m not a big decorator but this just feels so cozy.
Working on: meditating. I’m loving the Headspace app. (If anyone decides to sign up past the free trial, let me know. I have a free one month pass to give away that I earned when I signed up for an annual membership. Yep, I paid for the annual membership – I like it that much.)
Feeling girly about: Wicked by Essie nail polish. Best dark plum color ever!
Treating myself to: Ciao Bello Dark Cocoa Sorbetto
I couldn’t believe how smooth and creamy this was for sorbetto, which I usually find to be icy.
What about you? What have you been ______________?
(Thanks for the suggestion Chelsea!)
