How was your weekend? It snowed most of the day yesterday. I don’t mind the snow so much when I don’t have to get out – perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
Listening to… Serial. Have you heard about this? It’s a fascinating podcast by the creators of This American Life. It follows the true story of a man who was convicted 15 years ago of killing his ex-girlfriend. There are serious questions as to whether he really did it. Each episode explores a different aspect of the case. I devoured the available episodes in less than a week.
Using… Podcruncher. Since I began regularly listening to podcasts, I’ve tried out a few different podcast apps. I hated the built in Apple one because it would frequently lose my place. I’ve been using Podcruncher for a few weeks now. It’s a little counter-intuitive but once I’ve learned it’s ins and outs, I’ve decided it’s a keeper.
Eating… Jimmy John’s Vito Unwich. I know that going gluten-free seems to be kind of a fad and I’m not sure where I fall on the whole issue. I have a thyroid condition that can possibly be exacerbated by gluten so I have been experimenting with eating less gluten. In doing so, I’ve been trying some of the gluten free alternatives at my favorite restaurants. Last week I tried out the unwich (lettuce wrap) at JJ. It was ok, but their bread is my absolute favorite; it makes the sandwich. It was also nowhere near as filling as the breaded version.
Wanting… Mid-Century Glass Pendant from West Elm. I’m always on the lookout for new lights for my kitchen. While I really would love to do a few Hick’s Pendants, it’s just not in the budget. This light showed up in my Facebook feed the other day and it was love at first sight.
Loving… Prada Candy perfume . I usually wear Very Irresistible By Givenchy. I’ve been wearing it for years; sometimes I feel like I should change things up, but I still get lots of compliments on it. Sephora recently sent me a sample of Candy; I really like it. It might make a good scent to swap out occasionally with my old standby.
