Let’s see, what’s been going on since I last saw your lovely faces?
I worked yesterday,
and when I got home, we made a fort with our comforter and watched Elmo with Liv inside our makeshift tent.
The Pilot put Livi to bed and I joined some friends for a hot yoga class. There were 10 of us in our little group!

I’m pretty sure last night was the only time I’ve fallen on my face in a class. This is why even though I can do a headstand, I don’t usually do them in class. I’m SO afraid of toppling over and creating a yoga domino effect. I did an arm balance on one side and, word to the wise, it doesn’t always work out the same way on the other side. At least I didn’t have far to fall?
After class, I joined some girlfriends for dinner and sangria. Not a bad Wednesday night 🙂
I’ve seen this survey floating around the blog world in the past couple of months. While I’m not really a survey blog person, it’s something I enjoyed reading, so I thought I’d share my own little rendition. I’d love to read some of your answers, too!
I mentioned it recently, but I’m 100% sucked into And the Mountains Echoed. I’m already looking for my next book since I have a feeling that I won’t be able to wait longer than a couple of nights to finish this one. On the radar: Gone Girl, Proof of Heaven (I’ve read half but took a break), and Quiet (since I’m an introvert, I’m particularly intrigued by this one).
I’ve been listening to the Macklemore album (“Same Love” and “Castles” are my favorites) and right now I’m digging anything Calvin Harris for workout/life. When my iPod is on shuffle, things like this tend to happen, too….
Hashtag mom life 😉
Current guilty pleasure:
Chocolate chips straight from the bag to my mouth.
Current nail color:
They were army green this week, but started to chip last night so I took the polish off. Naked nails for now, sand color on my toenails:
Water with cucumber slices and mint from our little garden. My friends at work call it my “water salad”
Anything grilled! I especially love the Pilot’s famous turkey burgers with sweet potato fries and salad.
Current favorite show:
I haven’t been watching TV much at all lately. Still need to finish Season 3 of Downton, but sadly, E! ruined the season finale for me. Sad trombone.
Current wish list:
A new black maxi skirt. I accidentally put mine in the dryer, and it’s now a capri skirt.
A haircut! Things are looking a little shaggy, and twisty bangs is happening on an almost-daily basis. (Madre was sick so there was no way I was going to ask her to cut my hair during that time. I have a tentative appointment for next week, and in a month or so, I’m chopping it off, Guiliana style).
The above chocolate chip cookies that my friend Susan made. You could taste the butter in them, and they wrapped my soul in a blanket of happiness.
(With aforementioned water salad; sweet potatoes with chives and butter from the work cafe; quinoa, chicken and veggies from home; and a side of foot fitness lecture notes)
Every day I wonder how I got so lucky.
Work uniform, which is a lulu tank and black lulu shorts.
Our cousins are moving here from Key West in a little over a week. We’re so excited for them to be in Tucson and for Livi to get to grow up with her little girl cousins 🙂
So tell me friends: what’s something you’re excited about right now?
Current nail color and blessing?
