Five on Friday: April 10, 2015

It has been a minute, eh?  It has been a very busy couple of weeks over here! Here’s a quick little recap of the last week-ish:

The weather here has been insane! It was 80 yesterday and it was so hot in our house that I had to turn all the overhead fans on to cook, and later, to sleep.  I was feeling some summertime nostalgia for sure.  Thankfully, we are supposed to have a gorgeous weekend here!

We went camping last weekend and it was very necessary.  Time in nature is so important and I have been slackin’! It rained overnight while we were there, which cut our campfire time short but made for the most magical sleep in our tent.  The sound and smell of rain is my most favorite thing in the world! 

I made raw zucchini pasta and veggie sauce this week and now I’m inspired to start spiralizing more veggies!  I follow Ali Maffuci, the spiralizing queen, on Instagram, but I’ve never actually read her recipes…I just shamelessly enjoy her food photos.  She just came out with a cookbook though, so I may have to snag that!


I got a promotion at work a couple of weeks ago!  I don’t write much about my work here, but this change has contributed to my lack of posting.  It’s not that I necessarily have any less free time, but I surely have less head space for dreaming up blog posts!  As with any new job, it’s exciting and a tad intimidating at the same time.  Thankfully, I have an amazing team who won’t let me fall on my face, I hope!

I have been using my lunch breaks at work to work out and it’s really been helping with consistency.  Also, since I work with lots of amazing, healthy people who also like to workout, it helps with motivation too!  I hope to keep this up, although it is getting warmer and I’ll be more of a sweaty mess when I return to work…so that will be cute!
