Happy Friday friends! Any good plans for the weekend? I’m volunteering at a food distribution center tomorrow morning, and then we’re heading into the city for a date night :)
About the fake plant on my desk above – I wanted a plant for my office, but I don’t have any windows so I figured it would be a challenge to keep a real plant alive. But then I remembered this interesting article about the soothing effect of artificial plants (in prison) so I picked one up from TJ Maxx. I think it’s working :)
I listened to this audiobook on a business trip to Raleigh a few weeks ago and LOVED it. Jim Gaffigan might be my new favorite comedian.
This jacket for spring. I tried it on in the store a few weeks ago, and ended up buying it at half the price on Poshmark.
GoT coasters – I got them from Etsy as a surprise for Mike! I’m House Greyjoy all the way – who doesn’t want a kraken as their house symbol?
I made this recipe last week and it was a HUGE hit with both of us. So easy too – I just used red curry paste and coconut milk for the base, and subbed the veggies for what I had on hand (red cabbage, frozen edamame, mushrooms, kale).
I’ve spent a few days in Raleigh over the last couple of months on business trips, and have discovered there’s a ton of great restaurants/eateries in the city! This gourmet hot dog from Tasty 8’s was everything. I’ve been told I need to eat some BBQ next…The Sing movie soundtrack on Spotify. We watched this months ago and I’ve been listening to the soundtrack several times a week ever since. Fave song: “I’m Still Standing” – so good!
Speaking of movies, I watched Hidden Figures with my girlfriends a few weeks ago and it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. Such an amazing story – from the women determined to make an impact to the people in their lives and at work who supported them against the racist/sexist backdrop of the time to America’s ground-breaking achievements in space exploration. ALL the feels. I’m going to watch it again with Mike when it comes out on Google Play!
What’s the best movie you’ve seen lately?
