How is it already February?? Not that I’m complaining! My birthday is Friday AND with every passing day the weather is warming up in DC! Can you say “high of 55 today”?? Woop woop!
I’ve been trying to get a bit more organized with my posts and plan ahead, which is how I realized it’s been quite a while since I’ve done a “life lately post“, so here we go!
Planning: A trip to the Bahamas! The boyfriend and I are in need of a little getaway to some sunshine. The beginning of March we are jumping on a nonstop flight to the Bahamas for 5 days of fun in the sun… hence the extra workouts in the gym we’ve been doing.
Shopping: Closely tied to the Bahamas trip, I’m in need of a refreshed wardrobe! Specifically: Swimsuits! Living in DC it’s not a common thing I shop for anymore (RIP that Florida lifestyle). Any suggestions? Are Triangl suits still in??
Reading: I finished The Husband’s Secret, which confirmed my love of all things Liane Moriarty, so I instantly snagged up another one of hers! I’m almost halfway through The Hypnotist’s Love Story and it’s only been one day :) #nerdalert
Eating: The boyfriend likes to call these tasty morsels “pac-man potatoes”. During Jonas, Whole Foods was literally out of everything, expect for a small little bag of potatoes. After a bit of Pinterest skimming and recipe alterations, I came up with these tasty little things! Once I can track them down again and take better pictures, I’ll share the recipe.
Running: My next half marathon is about a month and an half away! EEK! I’m not totally sure how to train since it’s freezing cold outside and my asthma starts to kick in any temp under about 50 degrees…. how do people run up North?? Looks like I have some long treadmill runs in my future.
Watching: I’m about to admit something I’m not too proud of… I’ve been watching the Kardashians on TV while running at the gym. I don’t know how this started, but now I find that only the annoying sound of their voices can get me through a long run. I truly feel others are judging me when they see what my TV is turned to… I’m judging myself. But. I. Just. Can’t. Stop!
Needing: A car wash, a tan, a pedicure, a few more hours in my day, and a personal trainer… how can I get that all arranged?
Waiting: Friday is the best day of the year, my birthday! Thank goodness the boyfriend is already a year older than me so I don’t feel too old :) We’re celebrating at a restaurant we’ve both been dying to try in DC, Sushi Taro. I had an early birthday celebration at book club last week with friends, one of whom made this insane cake with four layers, sour cream frosting, and about 6 jars of sprinkles. I still don’t know how she was able to coat the whole entire thing! That little divot on the top left was my finger, just testing it to make sure it was ok :)
So that’s basically my life! The Jonas snow is starting to melt away and I’m blaring this song (I’m really in the beachy mood right now) as I get up and get ready to tackle my Monday! What have you been up to lately?
