This Weekend

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?


  1. Very cute dress! I've heard good things about swim suits from Old Navy this season, so I'll have to hit it up before my vacation in May.

    1. Thank you! My sister picked it out for me, it didn't catch my eye on the hangar but I loved it on. They had quite a few really cute suits, I hope you find one!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
