Another week, another Monday! I keep dreaming of 2 weeks from now when I’ll be in Minnesota escaping from reality. Must.keep.going. As I mentioned last week, life is kind of crazy at the moment. So crazy that it has gotten to a point where I’ve needed to make some changes. I’ve alluded to these changes before but it’s about time I come clean on them, or at least one of them. So here goes!
As I subtly hinted on Instagram, in 2 weeks I will be leaving my full-time job. I swear I haven’t gone off the deep end or made a hasty decision. I’ve been wanting this since about my second week at the job. As I quickly discovered, studying baby brains is not my passion. I want to share more details on my future plans but i’ll save that for another post. The one thing I will miss about my job? The amazing ladies I spend 8 hours a day with. I have the best coworkers in the entire world and I will miss every single one of their beautiful faces. And they will miss my baking
Besides my incredible coworkers, I am also grateful to be getting back into the gym. I’m going once a week now and that is enough for me. I’ll be honest, it was a bit dismaying seeing my weight on the trap bar halved from my strongest, but you gotta start somewhere. My lady muscles are hurtin’ today!
And then to feed those lady muscles I ate my weight in sugar cookies. My nephew and I baked and decorated what felt like 300 cookies. He was the best helper and was down with my method of “sprinkles on the cookies, sprinkles in the mouth”. Except that it’s perfectly acceptable for a 4 year old to pull that off. Also, how awesome are those cookie cutters?
Then I spent that rest of the day rounding up my kitchen staples for this post. I had every intention of photographing things in my actual kitchen until I realized what a mess I am. This is something that majorly irks my Mom and makes me question whether I got any of her cleanliness genes. In case you missed it, I rounded up all of the ingredients that are commonly used in my recipes and in my daily eats.
Sunday was not particularly thrilling. I was hoping to sleep-in but my body had other ideas so I went to hot yoga instead. And since I omitted a selfie on yesterday’s Spill it, Sunday post I’ll include one of me looking fabulous pre-yoga. The rest of the day was spent working at my part-time job. I did manage to squeeze in a new recipe for the most delicious tasting and looking cookies that hopefully I can get my act together and post this week. Keep me accountable!
Thanks to the Diva for hosting! Monday is feeling marvelous…but maybe that’s because I only have 2 work Mondays left eeeeee! <–serious excitement!
