Feeling... Tired, achy and sore. Between Tuesday night's yoga session and yesterday's tackle of Capitol Hill, my body is aching. It feels so good to be back at it, but man oh man, when my alarm went off this morning for yoga, I definitely went back to bed.

Reading... Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I picked it up at an adorable little "Take a book, leave a book" stand outside someone's house and started it on the Metro this morning. So far, I love it. It made my commute fly by. I've also had this book on my Amazon Wish List for awhile, so I'm excited I picked it up.

Listening to... "Hey Jude" on repeat. I've always loved The Beatles, but oddly, I had never heard this song until the movie Across the Universe came out. I love it. Side note, the cover of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" from that movie is my favorite cover of all time.

Watching... We still haven't gotten our cable hook up in our apartment so I have no idea what's on television right now. This week, I caught up on New Girl and Mindy Project on Fox, but when you have to watch those shows on the network's site, you can't watch last week's episode until after this week's episode, leaving you perpetually a week behind. No big deal, but I also need to catch up on Downton Abbey because Slate may or may not have tweeted a giant spoiler this week.

Thinking about... Serial. I finally finished it and can't stop thinking about it.

Working on... my training schedule for the Rock 'n' Roll Half. I signed up last week and started training on Monday...without a training plan. That was definitely one of my New Year's Resolutions, so that's something I need to work on this week.

Loving... work. Almost two weeks in and I'm still really happy. Things are starting to get busy too! Also, that this is my 700th blog post. I love that I've kept up this blog for almost 5 years!

Needing... to get our bedroom in shape. Our apartment is really starting to shape up nicely, and our living room is almost done but the bedroom is in bad shape. Our closet is finally finished, but there are still piles of stuff in the bedroom and no art on the walls. I guess that will be this weekend's project. Maybe I wouldn't feel so pressured to get things in order if we were in a house...the fact that we're renting, just makes me want to get it done as quickly as possible.

Excited about... weddings! I love weddings. We went from having one this year to three and I'm pretty pumped about it. Time to break out my dancing shoes!

That's what's going on in my world this week.
What about you?


  1. Wooohoo, girl! Go after that marathon! I'm out of town that weekend otherwise I'd be joining you!

    I love attending weddings, love is so fun!

  2. Isn't Serial addicting? now I can send you all of the stuff I've found on it since it all finished airing. Lots of stuff happening right now!
    I hope you start feeling less achy! It's ok to take a morning off--you don't need to break your body then you'll be no good!

  3. I love that cover! Living in an apartment has made me so lazy about decorating. Since I know we are only going to be in Hawaii for a short amount of time, I never got that into it... so I am excited to see what you do with your apartment! I would love to make it a bit homier for the time we have left!

  4. I've downloaded Serial but haven't started yet.

  5. I think my new TBR list should just be things I see on your currently posts. I've heard great things about Americanah!
