Way too much to read, listen, see, do, eat, drink, watch, write, and make. I want to do it all and every day I just find out about more stuff!

I will be honest that TV has taken a bit of a backseat lately. We don’t have any shows going right now. Although we did start Boardwalk Empire. Egads, that thing is about MEN being MEN and being POWERFUL. Which I’m not so sure I need to see another show like that, but it’s very well done so….

I’ve been reading at night instead of watching stuff and am trying to read during my lunch at work as well. It’s going okay! Here’s a master list of the things I’m trying to consume this week…maybe just this afternoon!?

An hour long video interview with Ashtangi Laruga Glaser. She is amazing. I can’t wait to watch this.

I’m currently reading two incredible page turners.  I was making fabulous prgress on the second book in the Elena Ferrante trilogy when I listened to this episode of Books on the Nightstand. I am now obsessively reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I’m not sure how great a book it is (quality wise), but it’s definitely entertaining…the Gone Girl of 2015 for sure.

My podcast feed is out of control. Trying to listen through it all, but getting bogged down. Especially with the slew of new albums being released right now too!

Oh, and let us not forget, the internet. There is my Feedly list of blogs, which is downright gigantic. The flood of daily news (thank god for NYT Now), op-eds, long reads, twitterings, and vlogs. Yep, I said vlogs. Perhaps my secret obsession with YouTube channels should be saved for another post entirely…

And on top of it all, today is Thursday and Thursday is when the GOOP newsletter arrives in my inbox, ready and waiting for ridicule!

It’s all too much…but in a good way I’m pretty sure.

Wow, has it been cold.

Word on the street is that we’re in for some “wintry mix” tonight.

This week I’ve been keeping warm and ignoring the cold by wearing extra soft, extra long warm crazy socks.  

Like everyone else, continuously dancing to this song…maybe in the shower.

Margaritas at El Mundo. Last night Andrew ordered the prickly pear and it was so good!

Thinking about this hot chocolate from my name is yeh

Reading. I’m on a roll. Currently reading these two:

Screenshot 2015-01-11 07.30.29We watched the documentary, Art and Craft. I kind of cried through the second half.

Loving my new Sorel boots. I have been wanting Sorels for ages and my head about popped off when I found them discounted by 60% at Anthropologie…they had one pair left…which was my size. I had to.

I really should end this post because I’m working on it instead of meal planning/grocery listing for the week. So far, so good on that one..we’ll see how week two goes.

Stay warm!

Let’s be real…I’m not getting down to business until Monday when I go back to work.

Sipping coffee this morning and catching up on blogs, resting some sore shoulders. After 108 Sun Salutations yesterday, they are feeling it a bit!

I just have to write this post to honor and thank the team at 502 Power Yoga for putting on such a fantastic event yesterday. It was a real blast.

I want to recognize the team of instructors I was lucky enough to teach with yesterday…so amazing. If you’re local…check these gals out!

And there you have it. Big thank you to the gang at lululemon oxmoor for this amazing photo! Again, I slacked and only got a few with my phone.

Resolutions: 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with b5 preset

Ok. Let’s do this.

I’m reeling it in a little bit this year. Giving myself less resolutions with more specific parameters while at the same time looking at the year ahead in a broader sense. So I’ve decided this into two posts. First up we have my actual resolutions.

1. Little Free Library

We originally wanted to get it up this year, but it didn’t happen. I will put up a Little Free Library in 2015! My dad built a great one and I’ve already registered it so we are well on our way.

If you aren’t familiar with the Little Free Library organization, check it out here.

2. Read 52 Books

Almost made it in 2014. 2015, I’m coming for you!

3. Vacation

Not about to give this one any more detail. I would love for Andrew and I to get a big trip in this year.

4. Yin Yoga

I have been piddling with doing 30 minutes of yin yoga in the evening for about a year now. It’s changed my practice in many ways. I want to do more of it.

5. Paint upstairs bedrooms

You’ve seen that paisley up there. Ouch. It’s gotta go.

In addition to this list of resolutions, I’m pinning intentions and visions for the year ahead. I’ve invited many of my favorites around the internet to join me.

friday

Processed with VSCOcam Oh….that thing when you find ridiculously gorgeous photos of where you used to live…Norway, you’ll always be Christmas for me. That was a tough Christmas away from home–Andrew and I’s first together–all alone in a country where we knew no one, didn’t speak the language, and it was only light out for a few hours a day. Yeah, that’s a beautiful sunset…at 2:00pm! Busy weekend ahead. I still have some shopping to do, teaching, book club on Saturday, and then a fun morning at lululemon on Sunday. If you’re into yoga and a local reader, I encourage you to check out this event! Hope to see you there! Have a good one.
