I am in one of those phases again, where I want to do a gazillion things and don’t have time to do it all. (Who am I kidding, that’s the story of my life!) I know, people say that if you have limited time (and who doesn’t?), you need to prioritize, but I don’t want to. I want to knit and read a book and go for a run all at the same time while watching a movie and listening to music and taking care of the daily errands. Is this too much to ask? Honestly, people (with kids, pets, an active social life), I don’t know how you do it all.

Have you started on your taxes yet? It looks like I finally have all our paperwork together (although I am not 100% sure since due to my employer switch last year and the acquisition of our house, it seems like I have some extra papers to deal with this time around). Do you do your own taxes or do you have a tax adviser? If yes, what prompted you to make that decision? (I am still thinking I should be able to figure this out myself, but maybe not?)

I found (fresh) pork belly at a new local butcher shop a couple of weeks ago and I might be slightly addicted right now. If you never had fresh pork belly, you need to try and get your hands on some. I had the hardest time finding fresh pork belly in the past (because – as I was told – most pork belly is made into bacon and if we know one thing for sure is that Americans love their bacon), but it’s just as good – if not better – if you prepare the fresh variety. Trust me, throw it on the grill in the summer and you’ll never look back!

Are you going to celebrate Valentine’s Day this weekend? J and I are mostly boycotters, because we don’t really appreciate the hiked up prices that surround the day and the “at the push of a button”-declarations of love. That doesn’t mean that we won’t enjoy our time together this weekend and do something fun. I even confess that I did buy a cute little card for J at Trader Joe’s (They seriously have the cutest cards sometimes!) and any day is a good day to give/send someone a cute card IMHO!
