Happy first Friday of 2017! We made it through the week! And yes, I might be posting a bit late in the day, but at least I’m posting, right?
This week seemed extra long (especially since the library was open on Monday, so I was at work), so maybe this weekend will seem extra long, too? 🙂 I’m looking forward to getting lots of things around the house finished and relaxing before things start gearing up again.
One | Guys, I have finally purchased a Fitbit! I’ve considered getting one in the past, but as I’m trying to incorporate more activity in my daily routine, it seemed like the perfect time to get one. I purchased the Fitbit Alta and received it today…looking forward to my first full day tomorrow!
Two | Late last week, I made my favorite stuffed pepper soup. I adapted Skinny Mom’s recipe by using one cup of textured vegetable protein and half a pound of soyrizo instead of the meat. It turned out so well! It’s a nice alternative to chili, but it’s still hearty and satisfying.
Three | Right now, I am reading Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes and it is such a treat to open every day. It is gratifying and sassy and honest and I am finding it beyond relatable. I’m eager to finish it so I can share my review with you all! (And cross off a category for my 2017 Reading Challenge)
Four | Is it too early to think about warm weather? I’m over here looking at swimsuit coverups dreaming about beaches and sand. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter, but….beaches and sand, guys. And surely if I buy a swimsuit coverup, I’ll be transported to a lovely tropical beach. Right?
Five | This is probably completely underwhelming for most people, but for me, it’s exciting: for Christmas, I received new spatulas. Spatulas are the workhorse utensil in our kitchen, and mine were falling apart, so I was thrilled to receive two large StarPack spatulas! They’ve got a stainless steel core and are made of a single piece of BPA-free silicone. If you’re in the market for a multi-use kitchen utensil, I highly recommend these.
