Reading… This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Trooper.  I’m about halfway through and like it so far…but then again, it’s about a dysfunctional Jewish family sitting Shiva.  Of course I’m going to like it.

Wearing… My fitbit, always

Listening… To 90s boy bands.  Because they’re awesome, and I can.  I had a sudden urge to listen to ‘NSync this morning, and it’s still going strong.

Dancing… To the above, in the car, naturally.  Complete with hand movements for Bye, Bye, Bye.  The other people sitting in traffic think I’m awesome, of course.

Making… A meal plan for next week and the grocery list.  Well, thinking about making it.

Wishing… I had some extra vacation time.  A mental health day would be nice.

Looking forward to… Seeing my sorority twin Bekka next week.  It’s been WAY too long.

Hoping… For good news about various things.  Sorry to be cryptic, but that’s how it is.

Eating… Leftovers for lunch.  Homemade Beef and Broccoli with brown rice.  I really need to get better about taking pictures of our meals so I can share them.

Drinking… My weight in water.  It’s about all I drink these days.  Except coffee, that is.  I also just realized I can’t remember the last time I had alcohol…it may have been New Year’s.

Going… To the bathroom, all the time, because of said water.

Wondering… How Abbie loses so many pacifiers when she only has them for sleeping.  Buying new ones when your daughter is 15 months old is no fun.

Wanting… A new pair of black flats for work.  Mine are starting to really wear out, but I hate shopping for flats and they don’t make the kind I currently have anymore.

Missing… Abbie, but I know she’s having tons of fun playing with her friends at daycare.  I’m so fortunate that she loves it there and we found such a great place for her.

Feeling… Pretty good about myself.  I’ve been in control of my food intake lately and have gone to the gym every day this week at lunch.  Plus, a bunch of people have told me that they noticed I’m losing weight, and that always helps.  A few more have even said I’m inspiring them, and that’s the ultimate compliment.

Loving… All the blessings in my life, especially these two.

    1. I did – look cute, but the black is out of stock! I’ll keep an eye out for it to come back, thanks for the heads up!

  1. Yes! Having to go to the bathroom drives me bonkers. And don’t drink a ton right before heading out the door! Omg! I had to stop 2 twice for a bathroom break the other day on my way to an appointment.

    1. I go like 12 times a day, no joke. It’s ridiculous. Once I was only 10 minutes from home and had to stop….now I go when I leave somewhere, no matter how short the ride!

  2. I just got new flats on sale from LOFT for work! Love this post, you’ve inspired me to do a similar one in the near future!
