Three Things Thursday: 4 May 2017

  1. I don’t generally read paranormal romance books (I’m a regency girl at heart), but when I want to try something new, Amy Cissell’s recommendations haven’t done me wrong. I’m about halfway thru this one (and I read the first two books in the series based on the review of the third one) and ended up staying up until almost 1 AM Tuesday night (I KNOW!! WHO AM I!?!?!) finishing the second one/starting the third one.
  2. This blog post speaks to me so hard! That said, it’s such a privilege for this to even be an issue in my life.
  3. We used to have (oven) roast chicken every week for Sunday dinner. Until we didn’t anymore because after three months straight, we got tired of roast chicken. I’ve started cooking a chicken in the slow cooker once a week again because (a) it’s super easy, (b) the kids eat it without any fuss, and (c) it’s super easy. While not exciting, it’s super-easy and with two kids under three, super-easy is in my wheelhouse at the moment.

April 2015: Recap and Goals

Life

I’m back in the US (for only a few more days) visiting family, so I’ll keep this short and sweet so we can go back to playing outside in the nice spring weather. Hit it…

  • Bebe’s first domestic (Oz and US) and international flights and Bebe’s first jet lag
  • Bebe’s first spaghetti
  • Bebe got to meet his great-grandparents and lots of other family members that he’d never met before
  • Bebe started walking!!
  • Going out to eat with other adults for dinner and having cocktails
  • Friends flew down from DC to see me
  • In-laws drove into town to see me and Bebe

Goals

  • Continued the Crossfit while out of town at a local box
  • Boo-urns – I stopped meditating because of flights and haven’t picked it up again
