Finally Friday.

May you wake with gratitude


This week has felt long, but also eerily short if you know what I mean. Life seems to be flying by and much more busy than this time last year… which makes sense when I realize all the things we’ve added in: Nuggets Games, Bible Study, Weekend Trips and lots more time with friends and family. I have to say that there are so many things I’m truly looking forward to this spring including Denver Restaurant Week, Blissdom and the welcoming of my new nephew. Makes it so much easier to get through these cold, dreary, barren months.

This weekend Christian and I are all over the place once again. Tonight should be pretty low-key, but we have no plans for dinner — maybe we’ll go out for a change? Tomorrow I’m meeting my sweet friend Jessica for her first trip to IKEA and lunch – we talk at least once a week, but I haven’t seen her since last summer, crazy! Saturday night C and I are heading to his sister’s house for the evening. Then, Sunday, we’re taking my Dad to a movie after church. Phew. Have to squeeze in a little cleaning (our house is a war zone) and a trip to the grocery store.

Here are few of my favorites from around the web this week:

I can’t stop thinking about this recipe for dairy-free mac n’ cheese from Daily Garnish. Early on, Christian and I bonded over our love of those cheesy noodles and I’ve missed them so much these past five, dairy-free weeks.

This post on living and working with a major time change was so interesting. I’ve got big-time wanderlust and dream of someday packing it all up and moving my arse to Europe (Christian and puppies in tow, of course). With that said, I’ve never really considered the way the time change would affect relationships with family and/or work!

Nicole’s ideas on willpower and what it takes to change hits a chord with me every time. Her no “BS” approach works for me and will really make you rethink your approach to food, exercise and/or habits in general.

My mouth will not stop watering… probably because these look so good that I could lick the computer screen. Salted caramel brownies, get this, with homemade caramel and homemade chocolate brownie-ness. Be still my sugar-craving heart.

This image of the Milky Way, if it were visible in NYC is stunning. Just stunning.
