Here’s this week’s #Grattitudes – a list of what I’ve enjoyed, appreciated, or discovered:
1. favorite Instagram post-
This @fuckjerry IG post of the little girl attempting the hula hoop made me laugh SO hard I couldn’t catch my breath. I’ve been revisiting it again and again the last couple of days to see if its effects have worn off, but NOPE it still makes me giggle every time.
2. dinner at home-
It’s been a while since I cooked at home, but I was really craving spring rolls the other day and I knew I had to make it happen.
We picked up rice paper and fresh vegetables at the supermarket, made the dipping sauce, and baked chicken breast in the oven. Brandon opted for butter lettuce wraps because he’s on a diet ;).
It was deliciously refreshing, and with the amount that was prepped, we were able to enjoy this meal a couple more times.
3. going back to yoga-
On Sunday, I signed up for yoga classes again.
In last week’s email, I shared how I’ve missed going to the studio regularly, and telling you about that (as well as some encouragement from Brandon) gave me the extra little push to sign up for another 6 months. And an added bonus is that my friend Paulina????????signed up yesterday, and we attended a yin class together!
She passed out during class and looked so relaxed, I couldn’t help but take a picture of my sweet ???????? angel.
4. brunch with my ladies-
On Wednesday, I had breakfast with Aundria and Paulina by the water and the weather was perfect and the company even more so.
The three of us have been meaning to get together for a while and we’ve been texting back and forth about how much we’re each looking forward to it ????. I love how intentional we are about picking a date and penciling it in the calendar, because it’s often too easy to let potential hangs slip away with everyone’s busy schedules. This is something I’ve always appreciated about our friendship.
5. tv show I’m enjoying-
I started watching Fleabag on Amazon Prime and I only have a few episodes left of season 2 (I’m not sure if there are more seasons!)
Here’s the synopsis from Amazon.com: “Fleabag is a hilarious and poignant window into the mind of a dry-witted, sexual, angry, grief-riddled woman, as she hurls herself at modern living in London. Award-winning playwright Phoebe Waller-Bridge writes and stars as Fleabag, an unfiltered woman trying to heal, while rejecting anyone who tries to help her and keeping up her bravado all along.”
Cheeky is the word that keeps coming to mind when I think of how to describe this show. I enjoy the often dark humor in it, and the episodes seem to whiz by as I’m watching. I’ve been looking forward to it at meal times, and as a wind down before bed.
