Happy Sunday! How’s your weekend going?
I’m just going to keep things short and sweet today. Here are a few things on my little gratitude list this week:
* Thursday morning before we all dove into our workdays, I met up with my mom and sister for breakfast. I ordered an egg white omelet with wild mushrooms, caramelized onions, and bacon. Yep, bacon in my egg white omelet—priorities. After almost a week of feeling dragged down and depleted (hormonal factors secondary to stress and being female), I felt my body come back to life almost instantly. Good company and good food (plus good coffee) have a magical way of doing that.
* Getting a dog was one of the best things I’ve ever done, even with all the plot twists in the story considered. I don’t know how I ever lived without this little nut-job in the picture. Now this is a rainy morning done right:
* I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I was in Miami for my lady-friend’s wedding. While I was there, I didn’t do much shopping, but I did manage to pick up these little jars of solid perfume. They’re the perfect olfactory pick-me-up. The coconut makes me feel like I’m on the vacation, and the rose is nice to put on when I need to feel like a girl who’s still capable of cleaning up nice.
*We should probably not talk about how long I will sometimes stay in my sweaty gym clothes on days I work from home, but what better chance to give a shout-out to Athleta for having awesome sales and to Old Navy for having the best damn compression tights under $30?
