Oh hey Friday. It’s wonderful to see you! For the record, I spent this entire week drastically confused about what the day actually was… Maybe it was the holiday? Maybe it was the fact that they didn’t pick our trash up on the correct day? Maybe it was because I didn’t actually leave my house all week long…
Either way, I double checked the calendar before publishing this post. It’s Friday. So here are five things I am currently in love with:
Have you noticed my odd mug obsession on Instagram? As we are organizing, packing and cleaning up our house before it goes on the market – I am beginning to realize that Houston, I really do have a problem. I’m obsessed with witty coffee mugs. #icantstopiwontstop #butineedtostop. But seriously, how great is this one?
I cannot believe it took me until my fourth Whole30 to try my hand at making my own salad dressings and mayo. I’m pretty positive I was just afraid to try it. I assumed it would be difficult. I assumed it wouldn’t be worth the time it took to make ranch dressing.
What I learned is that I was wrong, on all accounts. It takes me just a couple of minutes to make a batch of homemade (clean/paleo/whole30 complaint) ranch dressing. It is one of the easiest things I’ve ever made. And ranch is ALWAYS worth the time.
Santa brought me this hand blender for christmas. It is amazing. It is also the best $40 Santa ever spent. While you can make ranch and other sauces with a food processor or even a traditional blender, I find it quite a bit less daunting with this little hand held guy. Did I mention it’s available in almost every color under the sun?
I am in love with my puppy when she is awake. But I am beyond obsessed with her when she is asleep. This is, by far, one of my most favorite pictures of her yet… I’m pretty positive that she fell asleep while wrapping up her prayers and praising Jesus.
Is anyone else ready to give up everything they know and love in life because Parenthood is about to end? I have loved this show from the beginning. I’m extremely crushed that it will be over next week. While it had great drama and a little wit – this show was good for one thing: keeping me in tune with my emotions. I could always bank on one good, whole hearted, ugly cry a week thanks to Parenthood.
I will be out of town for work next week, so I will be sobbing through the series finale, all alone in a hotel room. If only I could drink wine right now…
Like I said, I haven’t left the house in a week. What I didn’t say is that I really haven’t gotten dressed in a week either. I’ve been living in these, these and this. Without this. For the record, I have brushed my teeth.
Maybe I should make it a point to leave the house at least once this weekend… #dreambig!
What are you loving this week?
