Love/Don't Love

Good Morning! It's been awhile since I've written one of these posts, so I thought I'd thrown one up to start the first full week of the year!

1. We're slowly getting settled into our new apartment and I'm loving it more every day. Love.
2. I'm sick. I've been sick since last Sunday and I'm still sick. I went to bed at 9:30 on New Year's Eve after canceling plans to visit my sister in San Francisco. The whole week was a bust and I'm so ready to start feeling better. Don't Love.
3. My 'baby' sister turned 18 this weekend! Love.

This was at her Sweet 16. She's in the hot pink.
4. I haven't run or exercised in any way, shape or form since the New Year started. Given that I can't take three steps without entering into an uncontrollable coughing fit, I don't think cardio is the best thing for me right now. Don't Love.
5. I made homemade bread this weekend! It was delicious. It was not perfectly round and pretty but it was damn good. I can't wait to make bread all the time. Love.

6. I think I've decided to run the DC Rock & Roll Half. I don't love that race and it's expensive, but it would be much cheaper than going to VA Beach for the weekend to race. Plus, racing locally is always so nice. Love.
7. I haven't been able to sync my Instagram feed to my Twitter feed in two months and it drives me crazy. Every time I try, it says 'Incorrect username and password' even though the user name and password are correct. A quick Google search leads me to believe it's an Android issue. Don't Love.
8. We bought Peyton a rain coat this weekend. It's adorable. I swore I would never be one of those people, but when I took her out in the pouring rain on Saturday and she shook herself out all over my new couch, it became a necessity. Love.

I just love it so much.
Last, but not least, the biggest and best news of all...

9. This week is my last week of work!  I'm starting a new job on Monday and it's a huge career opportunity and I'm so, so very happy and excited about it. Love.

So, that's what's going on for me this first week of the year!
What are you loving...or not loving this week?


  1. New job!! Ahhh, how exciting. Congratulations! Also, homemade bread = win.

  2. Congratulations on your new job! Sounds exciting!

  3. YAY for the career opportunity!!! So exciting! I hope you start feeling better soon--so many people I know have that cold that just keeps hanging on. I'm sorry it ruined your plans :( I guess the bright side is, at least this didn't happen during the wedding!! (silver lining haha)
    Happy birthday to your sister!!

  4. Yay, I love these posts of yours! :) And I feel you on the sick thing - this flu is REAL! I've had it since I got back from visiting my sister on Dec. 15, and I think I am finally getting over it this week. (Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself.) But yay on your new job! Hope it is fantastic!

  5. Love this post, so fun!!!

    Yay for the DC Race....I think I"m going to pull the trigger and run it, too.

    Well done with the bread. Doesn't homemade bread just taste better?

    I hope you feel better, lady! Sending you get better vibes!!! EEEK! New job, so exciting!

  6. That bread looks sooo delicious! I made beer bread last night and it was amazing.... so I am loving that I get to eat it all week! Can't wait to hear all about the new job!! Congrats again!!

  7. Love the raincoat. Feel better! And can't wait to hear more about the new job.
