Hello! I feel like I’ve been a little MIA in terms of “random thoughts” posts. A lot of structure and not as much stream of consciousness (not that one is better by any means). I want to produce valuable content but, truthfully, I like writing and reading these life posts just as much. Makes the blog more human, or that’s how I think about it. All that to say, it’s time for some classic Thinking Out Loud.
As a fun spin on TOL, let’s play catch-up with some iPhone pictures I haven’t shared here. Even though 90% of the photos I post on the blog are from my iPhone, just pretend it’s a novel idea.
TOL: Life From My iPhone
The new yoga studio in town (the one that has the best mobility yoga class) is named Kodawari. When I asked the lady at the front desk “what
the hell does Kodawari mean?” she directed me to the decal on the wall. How much do you love this definition? Serendipity is still my favorite word but this is climbing the ranks.
We bought a kiddie pool so the dogs could go swimming. While this Florida weather is torture, at least we (humans) don’t have to wear a fur coat. They were entertained for a few good minutes.
Speaking of dogs, my mom made a batch of sangria last weekend and Archie was more interested in my glass than he was with running around. The sangria was supposed to be my entertainment while watching them play….he had other ideas.
I’ve been grilling up a storm this summer (as seen in Tuesday’s post) and now I have some photographic evidence. #pictureoritdidnthappen. I’ve grilled different types of fish, chicken, burgers, fruits, vegetables. My mom, the resident grill master, is happy that I willingly go outside and stand in-front of a 500 degree tool. All for good food, all for good food.
This was dinner of coconut-pineapple chicken and carrots. The chicken was marinated in a pineapple-balsamic, coconut-balsamic, olive oil and coconut flakes.
Coffee shops have become my new favorite place to work (on job applications and the blog). Funny thing is, I don’t drink coffee…I’m just there for the Wi-Fi. I try to sit outside if there’s a fan and usually order a tea or water, but I know I’m not the only one who goes places for Wi-Fi. Make me feel better, people.
This is my new favorite running song! Listen/download it now. It sounds a heck of a lot like Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby” but much faster.
Now to end this post with a bang: I’m in D.C. right now! I flew up yesterday for a quick trip to visit my cousins and get a change of scenery. I’ll share more next week :)
