Sunday Lately: Planning, Loving, Reading, Wishing, Feeling.

It's Sunday morning, I'm sitting in the living room while Dan sleeps, and I'm watching Botched by Nature in the background as I type this.  I'd love to be able to blog more ahead of time, but it just hasn't worked out lately!  There's so much to do.  But I figure, there's no better time to get back into it than the present, right?

I'm planning my upcoming weekends!  There are some festivals and events, we don't have Labor Day weekend plans, and we have our Canada vacation coming up too.  My friend came over with her Happy Planner and we had a little planning party, so I'm enjoying that still.  I'm also meal planning, as we're trying Marley Spoon for a couple of weeks to see how we like it compared to Plated.  But I still love Plated...  it pushes me to try new things, like making my own ricotta cheese!

I'm loving looking back at the photos of my whirlwind trip to the Outer Banks.  I went out there for three quick nights for a friend's wedding, and I'll be blogging about it soon!  But for now, the pretty pictures on my phone make me smile.

I just finished (truthfully, in ONE DAY), Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.  I loved it.  Even though I thought it was a bit weird to read the play script, I shouldn't have been worried.  I was transported back to how I felt during the original book releases.  I remember going to a midnight release party for the fifth book, reading the last book during Army training... it was magic. And I really loved getting back into that world!  I'll probably add the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to my queue too, even if I see the movie.  Or I'll binge it right before the movie.  We'll see.  Follow me on GoodReads if you'd like to see what I'm reading!

I'm wishing for less rain!  I know that the world probably needs the rain or whatever, but I'd love for it to be swimming pool weather for a few more weeks so I can take advantage.  We really didn't take advantage of our apartment pool enough this summer, so after my beach trip I'm determined to enjoy it more.

I'm feeling a bit drained.  I've been doing a lot of stuff for DAR, side gig writing, and work.  I've also had a ton of houseguests last month and this month, so cleaning and keeping the guest room clean add to the workload a bit.  I keep saying I'm "flipping" the room because that's what it feels like.  But the perk?  I got to spend quality time with my DAR friends.

  • On the Blog:  I blogged about my latest Stitch Fix, which meant I got a new shirt for my closet!
  • On Twitter:  I tweeted the best diet tip I ever found online.
  • On Instagram:  I made my crowd favorite orange chicken when I had a guest this week.
  • On Pinterest:  I pinned a weekend guide to Key West because I think we'd really enjoy a getaway weekend there!

I leave you with one last photo that my friend snapped at one of our DAR events this week...  I don't feel like Wonder Woman, but I do know that I have a wonderful, full life.  I've read that if you hold a "super" pose for a bit, it helps you feel energized and confident.  So I need to pose like a superhero more often and own it!

What are you up to this Sunday?
