Currently | July

EXCITED ABOUT | seeing my giraffe friends on my weekend runs around the neighborhood. I run by our local zoo and the giraffes always peek over the fence and it just makes my day.

READING | A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.

LOVING | the opportunity to run with my friend Susi this month.

WEARING | my Birkenstock sandals. All day, every day.

EATING |  Perfect Bars* (well, really just 2-3x per week). I love these protein bars so much. I’ve tried many, but these are the best by far. What are your favorites?

DRINKING | Iced water. I am usually not a big fan of iced water (I prefer room-temperature), but I got this cool new ice-cube tray that makes these humongous ice cubes and it cools down the water just enough for it to be refreshing, but not hurt my throat when I am drinking it.

WATCHING | 90-day fiancé*. Oh boy, I just need something to distract myself from the misery that is the news these days. This show is miserable, too, but in a different, more entertaining, less depressing way. Haha.

MAKING | space by taking stuff to the consignment store and Goodwill. I made some progress in my closet and 2nd bedroom and it feels good to get rid off some stuff. Can this still be considered spring cleaning? No? Ok, fine.

ENJOYING | evening walks with J at the park.

THINKING | that I’d really love it if summer breaks were mandatory for adults, too!

LOOKING FORWARD TO | the SF marathon*. (Well, I’ll be running the half, but still.) I can’t believe it’s that time again. It’s going to be fun!

TRYING | free items at the supermarket. Do you use the Safeway app*? They offer free items to try every once in a while and last week, I got $6 guac for free.

What’s up with you currently?

  1. Aw seeing giraffes would make me so happy too! I like when I run by houses in my hood and there are kitty cats sitting in the windows. :)

    1. I run by a house that I call the ‘cat house’, because there are always so many cats in the windows and front yard! ;)

  2. Yes yes yes! I second summer breaks for adults!
    I guess your giraffes is my grey heron in the park. Inalways swing by the pond to see if he is around.
    Have a great week,

    1. That is cool that you see a grey heron at the park!

  3. Haha, I watched my first episode of 90-Day Fiance this weekend, since we had cable at the condo where we were staying. It’s an interesting show, that’s for sure.

    I’d love a summer break! Wouldn’t THAT be divine? Alas.

    1. J and I didn’t go the K-1 route way back when, but I guess that’s why this show is so intriguing (and ridiculous) to us ;)

  4. Seeing giraffes on a run would be so cool! I mean, I thought my running routes were pretty but seeing giraffes is unbeatable! What’s currently up with me is that we are adjusting to paul going to daycare. He has done well with both drop-offs this week and they said he’s really smiley and chill but he didn’t really nap yesterday besides 4 10-15 minute cat naps. He usually sleeps 2-3 hours between 3-4 naps so he did not get much sleep yesterday! But he still slept well last night, thank goodness. Sometimes bad naps = bad night sleep so I am glad that wasn’t the case because I’m tired enough as is!

    1. I ran by the zoo for months without ever paying attention, but then I once saw the giraffe and now make it a point to go visit them every time :)

      I hope things with your transition to a new routine will go smoothly.

  5. I love giraffes!
    And yes making space in your closet sorting out clothes DOES count as spring cleaning!

    1. I love that you said that closet sorting always counts as spring cleaning :)

  6. A Wrinkle in Time is One of my absolute favourite books. I still have the copy I read as a kid. And yes, closet cleaning is spring cleaning!

    1. I was hoping that I’d love the book, but I didn’t really. Sadface.

  7. I smile every single time you post a giraffe photo and I am the most jealous that you get to see those sweet creatures on your runs!

    1. It seriously makes me so happy :)
