Warning: my thoughts are a bit all over the place this morning. But I wanted to just let you in on a few things happening in my life and my brain these days. Here we go...
One: I am so happy that it's not 100 degrees this week. It's still in the 90's, but I can handle that. I even baked yesterday. It was probably 90, and I thought to myself, I can smell fall. And it was a really good feeling. 90 degrees, I'll take you any day over 100.
Two: I posted a photo a few days ago on Instagram of the beverage containers that had collected on my desk. After I posted it I thought, "why did I do that? That's not cute, it's kind of gross." Then, to make myself feel better, I thought, "I'm just being real, right?" But how real do we get on social media? I mean, seeing someone's gross empty coffee cups on their desk may not be visually what we're going for here... Still wondering if I should have done that... :)
Three: I joined my first Twitter chat yesterday. Have you guys ever done one of those? I was super intimidated. It kind of felt like we were all in a room yelling out these bits of information hoping that someone heard what we were saying. Despite my scared and timid attitude going into it, it took me out of my comfort zone and I think I benefitted from it in the end. I met some cool new Twitter friends too.
Four: This month has FLOWN by. To think next month is October is cray cray. October? Then Thanksgiving... then Christmas! Holy moly. Hello 2013. Life truly does go by faster and faster as you age. Thinking about my new years resolutions right about now...
Five: I'm trying to eat healthy again. I think part of my posting all of my empty caffeinated beverages on Instagram made me re-examine my health habits. It's going well so far. Except for the baking thing yesterday... Everything in moderation, right??
Six: Wednesdays are now my husband and I's new date nights. Every night of the week now we each have some sort of obligation, except for Wednesdays. So we decided that was our night to hang. I'm planning on making a yummy dinner for us and renting a good Red Box. Last time we watched "The Iron Lady" with Meryl Streep. SUCH a good movie. I cried. A lot. So today I'll be sporadically browsing food blogs for ideas on what I should make tonight, and if anyone has any good movie suggestions, I'm happy to hear them :)
