Last week has been all about relaxing and taking time to focus on the things that really matter to me: learning, recovering, connecting with friends and family, and  creating. There has also been a lot of home cooking and enjoyment of froyo and gelato with Kristen. I'm working on redecorating several rooms in our house and plans for a few home improvements. You can see what I'm pinning for inspiration and my wish list here. What I'm really enjoying though is a book I recently bought for brainstorming writing ideas. It's called "642 things to write about", and I'm having so much fun with it. While I'm not going to "write about an imaginary friend", there are other topics in there that I would love to share.

Kristen also "moved out"; she never really moved in permanently, but the guest room is kind of like her room whenever she stays here. (It's also everyone else's room to sleep in whenever they visit, but that's besides the point.) We are slowly but steadily making the other small spare room into another guest bedroom. I just like having our entire home "guest-ready", if you know what I mean. I'm a little anal-retentive like that.

Plans for this week? More of the same things and hopefully some running. My right leg feels weird, almost restless. Hopefully I didn't break something. Knock on wood. I also have another research paper and maybe a trip to L.A. to see my family. Since every weekend in March is pretty jam-packed with "events", I may not get to do our monthly Sunday brunches. That, and I have to be a tourist in my own hometown. I didn't truly appreciate living there when I did, even though I would never live there again. Make sense? No, I didn't think so either.


  1. Hello darling! Sounds like you're having a lovely month so far. I love that your home is always guest-ready. You're so good at that. :) As for me, um, not one of my strengths. Actually, every time a friend or family member comes to visit, they end up cleaning for me (I obviously don't ask them, I think it's just because they're so grossed out). Anyway, that book sounds wonderfully appropriate for me as well, so I'll have to check it out. I've been doing a lot more reading lately and staying in. Being pregnant has me feeling sick half the time and hungry/tired the other half, so I've been kind of a party pooper lately. Brandon is pretty happy with this though because he is such a homebody himself, like your Scott. :) Talk to you soon, love!

    1. I don't know if you still don't get my responses to your comments, but I have will write/text you soon! I'm stressed out about my final and my research project! Ugh!

  2. Looks like a lovely week is coming. I hope you'll be able to get back to running soon. :)

  3. That plate of fish and beans looks so delish! And I'd love to give that book a read to stretch my writing muscles. It must be so cool having a home where you can make home improvement projects here and there. And I'm so glad you're gonna be a tourist in your hometown! Happy to see the inspiration's flowing ;)
