Ready or not, here comes a random but hopefully informative post!
First up, life updates…
There have been some changes at work, which means more/elevated responsibilities for me. This also means I’ll be travelling to Rome, Italy for a week in March. So much going on!
I recently shared on Instagram that Vishnu’s on night float for the rest of this week and next. This usually throws me off, but this time around, I’m really trying not to let it get to me. I know we’re only a few days in, but I think I’m doing a great job. Positive self-talk + slowing down a little really helps.
The one thing throwing me off has nothing to do with night float. Kaiden’s been waking up earlier than usual, and it’s exhausting! He wanted to party from 1-2 am the other night! Silly boy! When he wakes up before 5:30, I bring him in our room, so we can both get a little bit more rest. I don’t know if that’s the best move because now he literally points to our room and then our bed. It’s like he wakes up just so he can come sleep with me! Not necessarily the best habit, but I kind of love it. He’s such a cute snugly bug when he sleeps! We shall see where this takes us…
Now on to a few book recommendations!
My 2019 goal is to read 24 books. That’s two per month. I’m a little behind at this point but hoping I can make up for it soon.
Here’s what I’ve read so far…
No Bad Kids by Janet Lansbury
Becoming by Michelle Obama
Up next I’ll be reading One Day in December by Josie Silver.
Now, get ready because you’re going to get a little hungry…here are a few recipes I’ve recently tried and LOVED!
IP Lasagna Soup by The Chutney Life – I’ve made this twice now, and it’s been a hit both times!
IP Masala Khichdi by The Chutney Life – not surprising…another fav! Love the masala aspect to this recipe!
Energy Balls by The Lean Green Bean – you guys know I love Lindsay’s recipes! This one is full of all the good stuff and both adult and kid tested and approved. Kaiden ate two balls last night and probably would’ve had more if I let him!
I got a few messages on Instagram about the games I shared in my stories over the weekend. We played Codenames Pictures (so fun, so hard!), 5 Second Rule (so intense…leaves me so flustered and goofy!), and the age old favorite, Cards Against Humanity. All great options to have on hand for game night!
Guys, I wanted to share some new makeup products I’m using too, but I’m tired and feel like the more responsible thing would be be to go the f to sleep! HA! I’ll share a roundup very soon.
Happy Valentine’s Thursday, y’all! Don’t forget to eat a little chocolate today!
