How is it the end of the week already? Not sure why, but in general, September is flying by. Next week it’s October, people! How?

Anyways, this was another good week. Nothing spectacular, but nice because we got some family time in last weekend and over the course of the week. Kaiden finally seems to be conquering the art of independent play at home (KNOCKING ON ALL THE WOOD!). All good stuff!

With that, here are my 5 random things…

ONE – I made Piping Pot Curry’s Instant Pot Chole Masala, and you guys, it’s delicious! I didn’t even have all the ingredients, but I improvised, and it still turned out great. A definite must make!

I also made these banana oat blender muffins after trying the ones my friend Pankti made. Honestly…these are some of the easiest and tastiest muffins I’ve made to date! Vishnu, K, and I all loved them. So much so that I think I’ll have to make two batches the next time around!

TWO – Let’s talk about Fall TV! Did you guys catch the season premieres of This is Us and A Million Little Things? I don’t want to give anything away, but man oh man, am I excited!!! I love these shows because not only are they human and real, but there are so many layers…

Vishnu and I are still watching the Americans. We just started season 4! Another great show, and thankfully one that doesn’t make me cry!

THREE – It’s time for me to pick a new book or two to take me through the end of the year and all my travels! I just finished How Toddlers Thrive (loved it by the way) but am now in the mood for some good fiction. I’ve heard good things about American Royals, Things You Save in a Fire, and My Friend Anna, and The Silent Patient.

What are you reading right now?

FOUR – It’s been a while since I’ve watched a movie by myself. My sister told me she recently watched Home Again and liked it, so I made that last Friday’s movie. Who doesn’t love Reese Witherspoon in a rom-com?!

I thought it was a good movie. Nothing spectacular but a nice feel good kind of movie. A solid 3.8 stars! 🙂

FIVE – I’m having an off week this week because one of my favorite coworkers put in her resignation. I’m SO SO SO happy for her, but so so so sad for me! HA!

Also, to add to that emotional mess, one of my favorite instructors at the gym is moving. I literally teared up when saying bye to her!

With that, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
