Currently + Weekly Paleo Meal Plan

Oh hey! Remember me? I used to blog here until every aspect of life sped up to about 1,000 mph! I'm working on finding balance and I have a feeling that come March 7th I'll find a little more time (ICYMI: March 7 = my wedding). Let's do a little catch up with some currently, shall we?



Reading: The Paying Guests. This book topped every "must read" list that's come across my email/internets. When I first picked it up I was like so predictable I know exactly what's going to happen. Yeah no. Not predictable at all. And really, really great. And makes me really really glad I'm a woman in this decade, not 1922.

Doing: Relaxing after a paleo prep-a-thon by catching up on TV I missed this week. Here's what we've got for the week, most recipes thanks to my friend Amanda who just got started on paleo and is way better at finding recipes than me. Also, shredded cabbage..not sure where I was going with that one but I picked up cabbage and I'm hoping the idea I had for it comes back to me:




Working on: Short term - wedding seating charts (womp womp). Long term - nightly reflection, 90 Days of Yoga, accepting that I can't control everything (see: impending wedding week ice storm), boozing no more than twice/week (this is a major challenge due to aforementioned wedding).


Watching: The Slap. Why am I so into this show? And who the heck's side am I on (answer: I think I hate everyone?)? And why does everyone care so much about Uma Thurman's makeup at the premier of this? If I manage to stay awake for this entire episode I'll be catching up on the How to Get Away With Murder episode I missed this week too (DO NOT TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED).

Wanting: Warm weather, no more winter. Oh! Conveniently 2 weeks from today I'm hopping on a plane to Cancun. The big question here: will I survive 2 more weeks of this winter mess? 

Wishing: I had Tivoed these shows instead of thinking I would just watch them on demand. No fast forwarding through commercials is so irritating. Whoa. Talk about some first world problems over here.

Feeling: Loved. Appreciative. Also sore thanks to this.


Happy Monday! Hope everyone has a great week- annnd someone please tell me who we hate in The Slap?!

  4. I am going to be picking this book up asap!
    We love cabbage. We eat an embarrassingly large amount of it, especially shredded and braised with onion and bacon. It's just so good!
    I haven't started The Slap yet, but I feel like it might be happening today during naptime.
    I miss alcohol. We are about to start painting our cabinets this weekend and I can imagine that I will be very, very sad that I can't drink while this is happening.

  13. I love you meal plan. It looks very similar to mine. I eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day too. Also, I am so with you on being annoyed about not being able to fast forward when watching On Demand. I try all the time out of habit and get annoyed every single time it doesn't work. Grrrr
