This week has.gone.so.slow. I’m so ready for the long weekend. Actually we get two long weekends in a row! 3 day weekend this week because of Labor Day, work 3 days and then another long weekend. We are heading out to South Bend, IN to spend some time with TJ’s dad and stepmom and to go to a Notre Dame football game. We always have a great time when we go back there and get to see family and lots of friends. Can’t wait to see all the new babies too!
Here are a few of my favorite moments from this week:
I’ve been loving all the storms that have been blowing through each night this week. I swear I sleep 100 times better when it’s cool and breezy and rainy outside.
Last weekend we went to the Container Store and bought some new containers to store fresh fruits and veggies. The bottom drawers in our refrigerator that are made for produce are usually chock full of fruits and vegetables. The problem is that they are out of sight, out of mind. We will forget what we actually have in there and then when I got to check, half of the stuff has gone bad. So in an effort to put the good stuff front and center, we bought some clear containers to start storing our fruits and vegetables. I prepped everything when we got home and now that it’s Friday, almost all the fruits and vegetables have been eaten. Well we still have some veggies, like lettuce and asparagus that we kept in the drawer, but everything else has been devoured. Because it was all cleaned and prepped and visible as soon as the refrigerator was opened, we snacked on a lot more grapes and celery and cucumbers and carrots and watermelon. Less waste and more nutrition!
Relaxing at night. I’m pretty bad about needing a TV or podcast or video playing while I fall asleep. I tend to fall asleep much quicker when it’s not completely quiet. But I know that it really disrupts the restorative kind of sleep that I need. Whenever TJ is on his phone when I’m trying to sleep, I’ll (sort of) joke with him that he’s disrupting my melatonin production. I’m sure that he sometimes wonders how he married someone so weird.
This week TJ and I took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Here’s our videos, nothing else needs to be said about this.
Have a great weekend!
