Love/Don't Love

1. It's Monday! For some reason, I'm oddly excited about the week ahead. Love.
2. This weekend, I headed up to my most recent alma mater, NYU to present on a conference on International Education in Emergencies. It went really well and I was so happy to be talking about all of my research again. Love.
3. From New York, I headed to New Jersey to spend some quality time with my family. Love.

Me and my Abuelita
4. I got back to DC late Saturday night and spent an embarrassing amount of time watching YouTube videos on how to fold a fitted sheet that left me frustrated and with bundled sheets. Don't Love.

Apparently there is a book on this subject. 
5. Sunday, I also spent some time in my Sauconys on the Mount Vernon Trail, took a trip to World Market on a Bike Share bike (my new favorite thing in DC) and checked out the new Mind Your Body Oasis studio for a "yogilates" class with Andrea after the owner, Amanda, invited me to a Blogger Open House. Love.

The studio space is gorgeous.
6. While my spring cleaning efforts started off swimmingly, they're at a bit of a standstill. My linen closet is a mess and I still haven't gotten to organizing my running clothes. Guess what I'll be doing this week? Don't Love. 

Today, I'm watching live coverage of the Boston Marathon at work and heading to an Alumni event for my undergrad after work! I've got a busy week ahead and lots of miles to run but I'm ready to take on the week!

Happy Monday!


  1. Hello from Mingle Monday! :) I also hate fitted sheets! I've seen so many do it yourselves on it and none of them ever work for me! It always comes out awful lol. Sometimes... I just stuff all the lamely folded sheets into a the pillow case and fold that nice! LOL!

  2. Hi friend! Just wanted to say that I have perused your pages and love to see when others are just as into running as myself! Not to mention you're like a hop, skip, and jump from my stomping grounds (Winchester, VA area!). Keep up the good work friend and great job on your runs! Get 'em girl! Stopping by from Mingle Monday =)

  3. I have given up on folding fitted sheets myself, I just kind of roll them up at this point.

  4. I was going to go to the Mind Your Body Oasis yogilates class, but unfortunately something came up last minute. how was it?! I am going to take a complimentary class another day, instead.

  5. Your weekend sounds heavenly. Congrats on a successful presentation! And I must experience this Mt. Vernon trail someday - I keep reading about it!
