This Week

Valentine’s Day!

I got Joey an ice cream of the month subscription, he got me a craft beer of the month subscription, we both wrote “TABLES TONIGHT!” in our cards, I got a mid-day flower delivery and we had an epic dinner.

Just know this stuffed chicken was incredible and I ate a strawberry “pocket pie” that tasted like Captain Crunch Berries in the best possible way.

Joey and I booked a trip to Nashville!

We don’t actually know where we’re gonna stay or what we’re gonna do, but we do have plane tickets so that seems like a step in the right direction.

I dreamt I went to a twenty one pilots concert?

I guess I did just see them at the Grammys so maybe they were on the brain?  P.S. It greatly pains me that they use all lower-case letters in their band name.

I made a savory breakfast.

Who am I?  Though I usually go for savory when we go out, my weekday at-home breakfasts are always of the sweet oatmeal variety.  But I really wanted to use up this 5-Minute Magic Green Sauce I made last week and actually this was very very delicious.

I bought the newest Lumineers album.

Yeah, I know it came out a while ago, but I’ve been loving that “Angela” song on the radio so I figured I’d bite the bullet and buy the whole thing.  It’s pretty good, though the three songs that have made it to the radio are the most upbeat it gets.

I remembered we finished watching The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Over the weekend!  And I didn’t even say anything about it in my weekend post!  Two things that totally sickened me: the way Marcia Clark was treated and the fact that Mark Fuhrman didn’t have to change his name and move to Antarctica.  He’s literally on tape saying the most heinously racist things and instead of being shunned by the entire world, HE’S ON FOX NEWS??  This is majorly disappointing.

I ditched Thursday night yoga to join my family for dinner.

Back when I lived at home, my mom used to do a salad bar for dinner and turns out, she still does that!  Or she did last night at least 🙂  I shoulda got a picture of all the stuff she had set out, but how great does this loaded salad look??

My mom got me a Valentine’s gift!

Where my list makers at?!  She requested that I use this notebook to make a list of the lists I make, ha!

I’m feeling so so glad it’s Friday.  Are you with me?!

  1. I love the Lumineers. Ophelia is my favorite, but I like to put Patience on repeat and write/read to it for ages. Once again, salivating over your meal choices. I’ve GOT to find my way back to Denver. Also, I love Nashville! Cincinnati is in driving distance (4 hours or so) so I’m hoping to sneak down there some weekend soon. Have fun planning!

  2. I was about 13 when the OJ thing was going down and I really had no idea what was happening, but I watched that series and it was insane to me. The way Marcia Clark was treated was disgusting and I feel the same way about Fuhrman.
