Time for some Monday randomness.
Last week we made Brookies (1/2 brownie, 1/2 cookie) in honor of our favorite Brookie. I’ve sure been baking/cooking a lot more than usual.
Can I tell you something? It finally feels like I’m at home. It feels like it has been forever since I have really felt this way. While in California there were some really hard times that kind of put a bad taste in my mouth and it never felt like home… then I moved in with my parents and while I needed that mentally and my parents are the best humans on the planet it was hard for me to really feel at home because we were in the basement and I knew it wasn’t a long-term thing so we never really settled there… and then we were living in an apartment that was nice but dark and it just didn’t feel like a home so we were rarely there and always on the run… BUT NOW—> It feels like home where we are and it feels super nice to slow down and spend more time together at home. Not sure if any of that makes sense but yeah, I just feel a lot more peaceful about our current situation than I have in a very very long time.
We used THIS recipe and I took them to a get-together after and they were gobbled up in about .2 seconds.
I think Brooke really likes it here too.
-My niece took this picture of Brooke and it made me happy to see it when I found it on my camera.
-H.A.L.L.E.L.U.J.A.H. Feels like we’ve been waiting forever to see these blossoms.
-She makes me a birthday card daily.
-At least a decade for me. (Article)
-Early treadmill run this morning of 7 miles @ an 8:05 pace while literally just staring at the wall and listening to music. Do you ever have runs like that where you completely zone out and kind of don’t really think about the run until it is over? That was me today.
-She joined me for the stretching portion but that just turned into a cuddling session.
-Had a really fun brunch with someone that is just in town for a bit and when we couldn’t decide on a sweet or a savory breakfast, we went with both. And orange juice. Kneaders orange juice is so perfect.
-Did I tell you about the show I was hooked on while Brooke was gone last time? I don’t know why I get so involved in murder mystery shows/podcasts but I could not stop watching JINX (on HBO but you can do a free 30 day trial). This story about Robert Durst is i.n.s.a.n.e. Probably not the best thing to watch when you are all by yourself for a weekend ha.
-I lost my favorite necklace last time we were in California and just got my new one in the mail. I love having the word mama (what Brooke calls me) by my heart (my cheesiness is out of control the last few days) all day long.
Share some of your Monday Matters!!!!
Where do you usually feel the most sore from running? Do you feel sore often or not much really?
Last show that completely hooked you?
Are you a jewelry person?
-I always have a necklace on and a watch but that is usually it… I don’t remember the last time I wore earrings.
