My site got hacked a few weeks ago and it seriously pissed me off. Like, can my tiny little part of the interwebs just get left the fuck alone? I was up to midnight trying to understand code and it took me the whole next day and a headache to get it all secured.
Woohooooo writing this post for March in the knick of time / nick of time (?).
Making: Ya’ll, nothing. I am taking a DIY break until I feel genuinely inspired and motivated.
Cooking: A lottttttttttttt of quinoa and tofu. I’ve been on a meat hiatus for the past several months and have been exploring the world of plant based protein. I made these flaxseed pancakes with some blueberry compote the other day. They are such a delicious alternative to regular pancakes, but loaded with protein.
Drinking: It goes like this throughout the day: Coffee to water to wine.
Reading: I just finished Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. It was recommended by B&N staff. They said the less you know about the story beforehand, the better. I won’t give any spoilers, but it was a unique story and I enjoyed it.
Wanting: New dishwasher. Our has been leaking the past several months and my husband hatesssss the current one. But it’s one of those leaks that a bowl placed underneath works just fine and then you forget about it because you don’t want to spend several hundred dollars on it? I have my heart set on a quiet bosch one and I’m thinking of gifting it to my husband for father’s day.
Enjoying: Getting back into the swing of a regular gym routine again. I am a lazy soul, and exercising doesn’t usually appeal, ever. I’m more of a hardcore napper. But, it has been so helpful for my anxiety to exercise a couple of times a week. I’m trying to remember that, and get myself to gym classes!
Loving: Matching clothes with my daughter. I bought these bunny shoes from Toms and these Rompers from Target (she fits a S and I fit and XL in the Girls section) and tbh it fills me with endless happiness.
Needing: To re-up on some skin care products. Faves include Holy Snails Shark Sauce (it is a huge reddit cult product), CeraVe Hydrating cleanser and my Citrix Sunscreen. I’ve used retin-a the past 6 years or so, but I feel like recently it is making my skin peely with only occasional use? I’m wondering if I should switch to a gentler retinol product instead. Open to recommendations.
Wearing: Unfortunately, I am still wearing my Sorel winter boots. Hopefully one last snow at the end of march, and then spring!
Watching: Ok. Fineeeeeeeee. I caved and started watching This is Us. I had been avoiding it because I basically tear up and cry 15343545 times a day, anyways. Ever since puberty, I cry at happy things, funny things, sad things, cute things. Basically anything. I’m still on the first season, I’m sure the boundaries of how much a human can cry without dying of dehydration will be tested soon.
Bookmarking: This tofu marinade. Tofu doesn’t taste….. that good? Wish me luck adding some extra flavor to it for salads and wraps.
Please drop a note to let me know how you all are! XX
