eating boiled potatoes with greek yogurt and chives and salads, mostly.

appreciating long catch-up phone calls with my sister and a dear friend over the weekend.

reading Respected by my friend Akirah. 

looking forward to my first paycheck under my new contract!

working on getting my creative juices flowing again. I haven’t had the time or peace of mind in a while to be creative, but it has started to itch in my fingers.

shopping for a few items at Michaels.

watching the news and wondering if there aren’t any more important things to talk about than this clown running for president. They even call him a ‘politician’ now on his Wikipedia page. Come on, give me a break!

listening to Money For The Rest Of Us, ‘a personal finance podcast on money, how it works, how to invest it and how to live without worrying about it’. If you are one of the people who wants to learn more about finances, this is a good start. David Stein is easy to listen to and he puts complicated matters into digestible terms. Highly recommend.

feeling like the less I try to cram into my weekends, the more productive I actually am. Who knew?

splitting my time between the park and the gym right now. I can’t wait for cooler temperatures to arrive, so that I can run outdoors more again.

obsessing over the magnets that I ordered from They’re so awesome!

keeping in mind that everything will work out eventually.

  1. I wish that our weather could meet in the middle because it’s been unseasonably cold and windy here. :( I wouldn’t want your crazy hot temperatures necessarily but I am sad that summer has gone away so early… hopefully it comes back soon! I hear you on the cramming less into your weekends thing – I need to work on that, especially since my week nights tend to be busy between run club, other social plans and making time to spend with Phil.

  2. That PF podcast sounds interesting. I definitely plan to check it out!

    It looks like it’s supposed to cool down a lot this week. Early fall, perhaps?

  3. Congrats on the new contract!! Well deserved!
    Our Target stores now carry Elli Quark!! I think they have a locator on their website so you can check if anyone sells it in Sacramento :)

  4. Congrats again on your new contract :) My husband cut me off from Michaels until Christmas … I usually go in for one very specific item and come out with a cart full of things :D

  5. LOVE those magnets, so cute & so fun!
