Friday, September 18th

It has been a hot minute, read 6 months, since I’ve done participated in 5 on Friday! This week has been a good week so I thought I’d share a few of the things that have made it an enjoyable one:

1. Coming from a big family, we always say it’s either a wedding or a funeral that brings us together, and either way, we are always grateful to have time together. Tomorrow, my family from all over the country will come together to honor my sweet grandmother, and my partial namesake, Amelia. It will be good to have some closure and have this time together with my cousins, aunts and uncles.

Blue Apron. Well of course when my mom gifted me a one week subscription, I forgot to cancel it for the second week. So we had a fancy, and amazing, meal this week! I do love that this program leaves me with recipes I can use again in the future. Never in a million years would I make my own tartar sauce or purchase scallions with the intention of reserving half for garnish. I really feel like I am upping my game, watch out world.

Back on my workout game and damn does it feel good. Need I say more?


After mourning the end of summer, I am essentially ready for Christmas already. Actually, make that Thanksgiving. Once the weather turns crisp I start dreaming of cold morning runs and pumpkin everything. I actually cracked my first pumpkin beer on labor day weekend, and there may or may not be a few pumpkins hanging out on my porch steps. I can’t help myself! Oh, and I PAID for shipping on Amazon, which pains my soul. But, I just had to get my hands on my first apple/heaven/pumpkin/Netflix scented candle. And look how it arrived! This is the first I have heard of this brand, Pure Integrity, and I’ve never seen an Amazon seller include a hand written note + free samples!

Update: Nutmeg Spice smells divine!

Thank goodness for good friends! I had the best chat with my OG-BFF (yes, that happened) while walking Mozey the other day. I walked her for a solid 90 minutes, came home starting cooking dinner and we were still talking. It’s honestly an effort to get off the phone with her, we just keep snowballing into more and more conversation. We talked about yoga, art, music, life, love, marriage, and of course, we always devolve into some high school memories. Remember that one time we got caught doing that? Good times.

Here we are circa 2007

How was your week?
