Happy Friday and (almost) weekend! And LONG weekend at that (if you’re in the US and are off work for Memorial Day)!
Parts of this week were fast, but then parts of it seemed to drag on. Was yours like that?
Regardless, we made it, and now I want to talk about this week’s highs and lows (and eats, duh?). I’m joining in with Kate for “Top 3 Friday” once again, and I’m also linking up with Heather for “Friday Favorites.”
Top 3 Eats
Hamburgers, fries + fresh corn on the cob (courtesy of the hubs). // These were some of his best yet. The fries were crispy, the burgers were juicy and full of flavor, and the corn was sweet.
Lentil & mushroom tacos. // This was another Thug Kitchen cookbook recipe, and, despite being a little messy, it was quite delicious.
Sausage, green apple, red onion & tomato pizza. // It’s not the prettiest, but it delivered lots of flavor.
Top 3 Lows
Bazooka has a bit of a cold. His teachers mentioned that basically every kid in his class has a cold, and luckily there’s no fever or major sleep disruptions.
I know it’s really minor, but I’m frustrated that I don’t have more free time to devote to learning how to use my camera (or more free time to sleep, haha). It’s just part of being a working parent; I wouldn’t trade the moments with Bazooka for anything, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss having free time.
My sleep hasn’t been so great the last few nights, and it’s not because of the babe. Hopefully I get back into a restful groove soon!
Top 3 Highs
I purchased my new URL and self-hosting! // I’ve been planning it (and alluding to it) forever, but over the weekend, I finally just said “let’s do this!” Much like Kate, I’m having issues transferring files, but I’m not going to stress it. I’m also getting really close to picking out a header. Yay! I hope to be up and running before the end of June, but we’re just taking it one day (file?) at a time.
I finally moved to my new office/department at work. // This has been a long time coming (first talk of it was last fall, and then I was supposed to move in January, and then April…) and I’m excited for the changes. The program I have worked on for almost 9 years is wrapping up, so I’m very grateful the company values me as an employee and is relocating me rather than letting me go. It will be different from what I’m used to (a lot of coworkers vs my own little bubble), but I’m ready for it.
Awesome walks outside. // It’s starting to get crazy hot already, but this week was really beautiful. I’m glad I have those 20-30 minutes to myself during the day!
