Best of January 2020

It’s fiiiiinally January 31st!  I was starting to think this month would go on forever.  I looked back through my pictures from the month and everything that happened at the very beginning seemed so long ago!  I mean, my parents have already managed to take two vacations since then 😛  img_2365

I’ve read THREE books, watched 13 movies and two limited series, tried five new restaurants, had the most puppy cuddles (we’ve had Huni basically the whole month!) and found a bit of balance between going out and being social vs staying in and recharging my introvert batteries.  I don’t know that I’ve mentioned it here, but we are also back on the house hunt in a serious way.  Maybe looked at six houses yesterday!  So I guess the conclusion I’m coming to is that January has been pretty good ♥  Fingers crossed for February!

Weekend Things

Well, I took a total of four pictures this weekend and three of them are food, so an F for me on life documentation, but this weekend was pretty chill and I think we needed it.

Seems like we’ve gone to the movie theater every Friday for as long as I can remember but there wasn’t anything we really wanted to see and my at-home movie list grows longer by the day, so we opted to stay home, cook ramen and watch something on our own TV.  Ugh, that ramen may look okay, but I found it so flavorless and I overcooked that egg TWICE!  Also, we watched The Master and… yeah, it’s unique and the performances are interesting, but I don’t know that I liked it really.  Do I not like Paul Thomas Anderson??  We made up for it all with a piece of the King Cake Emily sent us this week ♥

We hadn’t made waffles in a few weeks so it was time and Joey picked a recipe for lemon poppy seed that turned out so good!  The best things are made with buttermilk, okay??  I don’t know what we spent the rest of the day doing except maybe binge-watching Unbelievable.  Added interest because it takes place in Colorado!  Oh and I also cleaned our fridge, while Joey did some outdoor clean up and then we headed to Lafayette for dinner with Hannah, Josh and Mason.  They are looking at preschools, can you even believe it???  I cannot!  We had dinner at Teocalli and I really really like that place and it’s always good to see our best friends ♥

When we got home, we finished Unbelievable and I really loved it!  I think the world of Toni Collette, Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever sooo I was basically guaranteed to like it, but what a scary story that thankfully had a satisfying ending.  We watched all of SNL afterward and Adam Driver is my favorite weirdo!

Sunday morning at my favorite place ♥  Afterward, we made lunch salads (well Joey did most of the work) and I cooked some chickpeas, cleaned the bathroom and actually read for a few hours.  Joey was out in the living room watching a movie when I saw the news about Kobe Bryant on Twitter.  I was really shocked.  So sad that his daughter and seven other people also died.  I can’t even imagine that heartbreak those families are going through right now 😦

I went to yoga later that afternoon, then came home and we made dinner and watched the Grammys.  Now I remember why we stopped watching the Grammys but I really do love Billie Eilish, okay??  I hope you had a nice weekend.  It’s the last week of January 2020, let’s do this!
