1. this week in reading
I finished this one last night. It was a very unique story, and I love Laura Dave’s writing style. Even when I wasn’t loving the story, I was still completely invested and didn’t want to put it down. I didn’t feel any connection to Sunshine – I just didn’t have much sympathy for her and her life choices. So, that took away some of my enjoyment of the book. In the end, I’m still glad I read it, and I’ll still read every book Dave writes.
2. New Books I’m excited about
3. fun thing(s) from the week
Hello, gorgeous weather! We’ve spent many evenings sitting outside and going for walks. It has been in the mid to upper 70’s all week, and I love it! This morning I was able to go to the park for a run. Feels good to get some fresh air! All the extra walking and being outside has helped me surpass my step count goals all week.
4. life happens
After an awesome spring break, we’re back to our normal routines, and I had a busy week at work. I was in the office most days this week, but usually only 5 or 6 hours which still allows me time to get other things done at home. The next couple of weeks I’ll be working from home most days, which will be really nice. If the weather cooperates I hope to get in some more runs at the park!
5. looking ahead
This weekend we don’t have much on the agenda. My hubby has a fishing tournament, and the weather is supposed to cool way down for a few days. I plan to get the grocery shopping over with first thing tomorrow (best time to go is 7am – practically no one is there!) and then do a whole lot of relaxing.
PS – I need some easy crockpot meal ideas. Preferably with beef or pork (my husband isn’t a fan of chicken). I’ve been slacking on the meal planning, and I’m really sick of everything I normally make. Please give me your recommendations!
Have a great weekend!
