Hello and happy Friday! Is it snowing where you live? Hope you’re all stocked up on almond butter and wine, you know, the important things.
Current book: These “currently” posts should keep me accountable, but they’re failing in the book category. I was in the middle of “What Alice Forgot” (like I have been for a while) and stopped to read “It Starts With Food.” I finished that one but just picked “Alice” back up again. I very generously let my sister and mom read it during vacation so the delay isn’t completely my fault ;)
Current drink: Water. I’ve been so thirsty in the last week or so that I just can’t quench my thirst (#Gatorade)
Current guilty pleasure: Leisure (and slightly extravagant) breakfasts. I’ve been on a breakfast kick lately (see below) and have been taking extra time to make vegetables and potatoes fresh in the morning. Usually I make a big batch on the weekends but chopping and roasting in the morning doesn’t bother me because I have the free time. Eating a slow breakfast while watching the news will always be a favorite of mine.
Current food: Continuing from above…If you saw my post on Monday then you already know that I’ve been loving savory breakfasts. Sautéed kale (with turmeric), roasted carrots, sweet potatoes, asparagus, avocado and/or whatever we have on hand. Plus a fried egg on top.
Current new-to-me item/activity: So this isn’t necessarily new but it’s been a LONG time since I’ve done it…Les Mills BODYPUMP! I started taking BODYPUMP during my sophomore year of high school and went regularly (2 – 3x a week) until college. I love(d) so much about it. Now that I’m back in town I’ve been testing out different gyms to join and one of the gyms offers PUMP. I took two classes this week and I feel so freaking good.
Current need: to renew magazine subscriptions. Major first world problem but magazines are kind of my favorite.
Current workout: Running + Spinning. Yes, two things you haven’t seen a lot of lately. Injury update next week!
Current procrastination: Folding laundry. I may be out of college, but I’ll never be out of excuses to fold laundry.
Current blessing: Supportive parents.
Current mood: Excited! A main reason is….
Current excitement: I’m planning a trip to California! My cousins and I are heading out to LA and San Diego in early March and I’m so excited. Fun fact: I used to live in Southern California but haven’t been back in like 10 years. Any must-do/must-see suggestions? Part of me hopes I’ll love it and want to move there…my mom isn’t so fond of that.
Current e-card/funny quote: I have two for ya because I couldn’t choose….

Have a great weekend! Stay warm wherever you are.
