I’m sorry for the radio silence around here last week. I’ve been having a lot of trouble sleeping. When I don’t get my 7-8 hours, I’m pretty useless. How was your weekend? It was a sad one around here. Local sportscaster, Bob Barry, Jr. was killed in a motorcycle accident on Saturday. I grew up watching him and his father. BBJ’s passion for his work and life was inspiring; Oklahoma sports will not be the same without him.
Eating… SeaSnax. Always on the lookout for healthy snacks, I ordered a package of these when I made my last order with Vitacost. I was pretty doubtful that I would like them. But once you get past the texture (it feels like you’re eating tissue paper), they actually taste pretty good.
Watching… Lester Holt. I love Lester. He seems like a genuinely kind man with a fascination and enthusiasm for life. I am so excited that his years of hard work have paid off. I will however miss him on Weekend Today and Dateline; I guess I’ll have to start watching Nightly News again.
Reading… shelter mags. I happened to see an issue of Domino in Target the other day and realized that I hadn’t read the latest issue. In fact, my iPad was loaded with the current issues of all my favorite shelter mags – all unread. So I had a couple of binge-reading sessions over the weekend.
Prepping… food for the week. I’ve been attempting to eat a lot healthier. This means eating in most of the time. I am awful about waiting until the last minute to prepare a meal and then I’m too tired to stick to my plans. So this week, I did 90% of the prep work in advance. I cooked up some ground turkey and chopped all kinds of veggies for the week.
Wanting… Scallop Dishes. I have had and used Fiesta dishes for a long time. I’ve always loved the bright colors. My taste is beginning to swing towards more muted tones. I saw these dishes in Target the other day and fell in love. I love that they are white but the scallops give them a little extra character. They remind me a little of these dishes from Anthroplogie.
