Taking Stock

The holidays are over and so far this week I’ve gone to the gym twice, made spaghetti squash for dinner and this is my second—read it, second!—post of the week. I think I’m doing well with those good ole resolutions, no?

Anyway, I already took stock of the old year, so here’s a look at the right now:

Cooking: This Mediterranean chicken. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great either, honestly. I left out the artichokes, since I didn’t have them, so maybe that would have made a difference?

Drinking: Peppermint tea. Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean everything has to go with it.

Reading: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Making: Actual use of my planner. It’s only a week, so I’m pretty sure I’m getting ahead of myself on this one, but it’s better than the usual 3 days I stick it out every other year.

Wanting: A nap

Looking: Up flights to Nashville and New Orleans. We have no plans to go to either of these places as of right now, but you know, why not.

Deciding: To start an Instagram account for this site. Follow here!

Wondering: What it’s going to be like to fly with a 15-month old. Last time Luca was on an airplane he was 5 months old and basically slept and ate the entire time. We’re headed to St. Thomas in a few weeks and I’m pretty sure this time is going to be a totally different story.

Questioning: Everything, as usual.

Wishing: Someone would come over and take down and then individually wrap all these Christmas ornaments so I don’t have to   

Enjoying: Learning to use my new camera. Here's to taking lots more non-iphone pics in 2016. 

Considering: New tiles for this bathroom renovation

Watching: Parks and Rec. We’re on season 3 right now and I know I’m way way way late to the party on this one, but man it’s so good.

Hoping: That my best friend has the easiest delivery ever—baby Kiki is due in just a couple weeks!

Smelling: Clean laundry

Wearing: The exact same thing I was wearing last month

Knowing: That even baby steps matter

Thinking: About what one wears to a Knicks game. Sneakers? Boots? A t-shirt? Is it weird that I’m even thinking about it?

Admiring: People who give off positive vibes. Those people that you’re just drawn to, and you’re not really sure why. Those are the best kinds of people.

Loving: How much Luca is understanding these days. Do you want milk? Can you bring me your Peppa Pig book? Where’s your sippy cup? He totally understands all of it and seriously, this whole kid thing just keeps getting better and better.

Getting: (Got?) My hair cut, finally. Growing out a pixie cut is NO JOKE. It’s the worst, actually, but this new cut makes me feel like a person again.

Sorting: Through photos, in hopes that it’ll inspire me to actually make a photo book. Yea right.

Snacking: On pistachios. Look how many you can have!

Bookmarking: This article on why moms feel they need to be perfect. While I haven’t had to deal with the homemade costume pressure per say, so much of it rings true in terms of what we feel we “should” be doing versus what we actually want to do. 

Feeling: Like I can do this.
