A Break from Crazy

Thank you Friday for showing your pretty little face.  I'm not trying to wish time away, but I do need a break from the craziness that has been my work schedule (aka my husband and I in the same state for more than 12 hours.)

This week was a whirlwind brought to you by:

Airplanes - both easy flights and crappy bumpy flights

Football talk in an airport bar with complete strangers

A good new book - Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.  I read it in 3 days this week while traveling.  I couldn't stop.  It wasn't a happy, feel-good story, but it was the kind of book where you just love the characters.  Now that I've finished that up, I'm ready for a new book and open to recommendations.  Thank you Steph for moving this to the top of my to-read pile.

Meetings, meetings, meetings (but one of them had really good cookies)

Mexican food & margarita Monday in ATL

Raspberries & sugar snap peas - my food choices are always interesting when Justin is gone

Coffee & Wine

Awesome mailbox surprises from Yoga Outlet, Stitchfix and Wine Awesomeness

Jersey Belle - yep, I watched this and loved it and don't feel bad about it at all.  Another win Andy Cohen.

Beautiful weather enjoyed in tiny segments when the dogs need to go to the bathroom.

Training sessions for work

This Spotify playlist called I'm a Fly Motherf***er because sometimes you just need to hear that

Now that this week is wrapping up, I am super excited for a semi normal weekend.  Lots of food, dogs, laziness and pajamas.  My routine will be back to normal in about 2.5 weeks and the traveling will slow down a little bit.  In the meantime, I changed my sponsor spots to include a swap ad because I want to find some new bloggers and put some new faces on my sidebar so check it out.  


  1. omg that spotify playlist. haha love it! jersey belle? i am intrigued..

  2. I actually couldn't get through tell the wolves I'm home. It moved very slowly. Maybe I just have a short attention span?? But I ditched it half way through.

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed Tell the Wolves I'm Home. Not a feel good story at all but one that drew me in nonetheless.

    I hope you guys have some downtime this weekend!

  4. Mexican and margaritas are always a win!! Hope you can finally relax this weekend!

  5. Jersey Belle wasn't bad. When is Below Deck coming back?

  6. You definitely deserve a little R&R this weekend. It's supposed to be gorgeous weather, so enjoy!!! I was so happy to watch some football last night, my favorite time of year is almost upon us. Have a great weekend, my sweet!!

  7. It sounds like you have been BUSY! Coming home to fun things in your mailbox is always a fun treat though! I've heard of Tell The Wolves I'm Home, but actually have no idea what it's about. I haven't read very much lately, I'm currently trying to wrap up The Vacationers... it's just kind of meh, but I'm so far in I need to finish it.

  8. If you haven't read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes then I highly recommend it! I smashed it out in 48 hours. I was so completely hooked!


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
