Feeling... let down. Yesterday, 6 inches of snow blanketed DC and we had a snow day! Today? A delayed opening. I know some of you might be thinking that 6 inches of snow is nothing, but you have to realize that the federal government (which most of DC follows) has shut down for RAIN in the winter. Say what you will, but I wanted my extra snow day. I'm not looking forward to walking to the metro through the unshoveled/unplowed streets and sidewalks of DC.

As the start of the storm!
Reading... The Bookseller of Kabul. Megan posted this on Instagram a few weeks ago and I was dying to read it. I wrote part of my graduate thesis on Afghanistan and I'm fascinated by the country's history since the Soviet invasion. So far, it's ok...a little slow moving, but very well-written.

Watching... "The Today Show." It's rare that I get to watch this anymore, but on this delayed  opening, I'll take an easy start to the morning!

Coffee and these cranberry flax breakfast cookies. They're amazing.

Thinking about... my pick for my book club next month. I've been thinking about this for two months now and I still can't decide on a good book! What's the best thing you've read lately?

Working on... our apartment. Our Ikea trip was a huge success in more ways than one. I spent less than $125 and didn't have to use an allen wrench. My new deadline is by the date of my next book club. I'm hoping to host everyone at our place!

Needing... to do my taxes!

Loving... the meals I've been making this week! It's been a long time since I've truly dedicated myself to the meal plan I've made for the week. This week, I've been nailing it and everything I've made has been delicious! Here's a peek from my Instagram account.

Excited about... the temperature rising into the 50s next week. Is there finally light at the end of the tunnel?

That's what's going on in my world! Tonight, I'm going to {hopefully} get my hair cut fixed.
This weekend, I have to try to run 10 miles through the snow banks currently covering DC.
What's on your 'Currently' list?


  1. I'm surprised the government wasn't closed today, they close at the drop of a hat ;)!

    The snow day yesterday was amazing, right? I enjoyed working from home with my husband!

    Your weekly eats look delicious! I'll try some of them once I'm done with WHole30!

  2. I'm sorry you didn't get the day! I thought there was a good chance the govt would shut down today too. My husband said the roads are still not good out there. At least you got to enjoy the Today Show (one of my favorites on delays and snow days too).
    Good luck with all of the decorating--it's always an evolving process.
    Your food has looked so good this week!!!

  3. Currently babying my knee. Sad face. But next week NYC half marathon here I come. Hey, who are you on IG?

  4. Ah, The Bookseller of Kabul was definitely well-written, but I agree it was a little slow. I learned so much about the Afghan culture (you may know more already because of your background!), but I read it at a time when I really needed a fast-paced book, so I feel like I didn't appreciate it as much as I should have!
