Feeling... Ready for the weekend. Despite having a day off this week, I'm just worn out this week.

Reading... The Kingmakers' Daughter, the fourth book in Philippa Gregory's Cousins' War Series. It's so good and the characters are so diabolical. This is serious guilty pleasure reading...I find it hilarious when people try to break down the mechanics of the book on's historical fiction, it isn't meant to be accurate, it's meant to be juicy.

Watching... A to Z and Master Chef two new favorite finds. Master Chef Junior is adorable. I'm incredibly impressed with these 9- and 10- year olds who can make things like blood orange and passion fruit cream pies from scratch without a recipe.

Listening to... The Pop Fitness station on Pandora. It's perfect for the treadmill. I haven't downloaded music in almost two years (I know) instead of still listening to "Call Me Maybe," I'm actually listening to music that's current.

Anticipating... my kombucha! It's Day 7 of brewing, and it typically brews for anywhere from 10-21 days (though everyone I know does it for closer to 10) I'm excited to see how it comes out!

Dreading... the cold. It was 71 degrees on Tuesday. It was 39 this morning and is expected to drop into the 20s tonight. Can I have summer back please?

Working on... Running. It's going much better than it did last year. I'm actually wearing an older pair of shoes with insoles and running much slower than I would like to and it's definitely making a difference.

Loving... that we're moving to our new place in a month. I'm so sick of our current apartment. The building management is awful. I'm so ready for a new place.

That's all I've got!
Happy Weekend!


  1. I might have to start reading Philippa Gregory! I tried reading one of her books a long time ago and I remember not being that into it, but since you love it so much I think I will have to give it a try! I usually love the books you recommend!

  2. Ha! Your comment about Philippa Gregory books made me giggle. I love her books, but I definitely wouldn't take them at fave value for a history lesson. Silly people. ;) You should try reading the Poison series - it's historical fiction about a female poisoner for the Borgia family. So interesting! I've read the first two.

  3. What is the first book in the series?

  4. I love Philippa, she is such an incredible writer! The Junior chefs are so talented, right?

    And the Pop station on Pandora is the best station out there!

  5. I'm with you on being ready for the weekend--100%! Yay for moving in a month! I hope all the packing and actual moving goes smoothly (it can be such a pain in the butt, but worth it in the end).
    The cold is the worst right now--bundle up and stay warm!!
