Happy Monday! I hope it's treating you well :) I know I'm having a productive day-don't you just love those, where you're crossing stuff off that to-do list?
This weekend was filled with LOTS of rain, but that somehow made it super low-key and relaxing, which was nice. Saturday morning I got up and ran with my mom and my sister Alli + my dogs, Oscar and Ninja and Alli's dog Henry. It was a great run-3 hilly miles around campus. Poor Ninja was all bedraggled afterwards...
I baked bread (this recipe-her tip about 1/4 of the water needed for yeast being boiling with the other 3/4 being cold is worth its weight in GOLD) and then tried (somewhat unsuccessfully) to not eat ALL of it at once. That's the only bread recipe I can do; this time I did 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 graham flour which was a great combo. I watched lots of Scandal; I just discovered that show and I love it. I also made granola which got a little too toasty, but it still tasted good this morning with blueberries on top. If you want your house to smell like heaven, make that granola, it's guaranteed.
I also made meat sauce for dinner this week and I am really excited to have it tonight on top of zucchini noodles. SO GOOD.
I hit Old Navy with my mom and Alli and surprisingly did really well! I haven't bought much there larely. Everything was an extra 30% for cardholders and my mom was nice enough to ring up my stuff on her card. I got this dress (that I'm wearing today) for whatever 30% off of $5.97 is! I also got a comfy sweater that covers my butt to wear with my leggings (just try and get me out of my leggings on the weekend, try it), a bright orange boatneck T and a swimsuit that doesn't make me feel large. When you find a swimsuit that doesn't make you feel huge you pretty much buy it, right?
Last week was crazy town work-wise for me, so I'm looking forward to having more time to get projects hammered out this week. I have a press release and e-blast I need to get out for a storytelling event we're putting on in May, and the Great Race (a time speed endurance rally for cars manufactured before 1969) is getting CLOSE! I learned how to add transparency to pictures in Indesign today too!
How was your weekend? How's your week looking?
