Hey guys! Happy Friday to you!
Did anyone else here have a hard time adjusting to daylight savings this week? I sure did. I’m finally feeling back to normal this Friday morning- just in time for the weekend! Let’s chat this Friday!
Has anyone ever heard of an Instant Pot before?
When I was in Roanoke for my sister’s wedding, my former youth minister Melissa told me about it. It’s apparently like a slow cooker but has other functions like a pressure cooker, rice cooker, etc. and cooks food faster… and is way better?! You know how much I love my slow cooker so I was in disbelief that a similar kitchen appliance exists that is better. So naturally I ordered one to try out! I will report back with my thoughts. Leave me a comment below if you’ve used one before!
Earlier this week, B and I celebrated our one year anniversary! I have really enjoyed sharing my life with this guy for the past year.
I knew that B was someone special from the first moment that we met. I thought I would have nothing in common with him when he told me he worked in the financial industry, but we ended up chatting for hours on our first date. And plus, I really like shopping and that’s kind of related to the finances in some way? Right?!
B is so kind and thoughtful and has the biggest heart ever. He has brought so much laughter and happiness into my life over the past year, and I feel really lucky that we met. We recently moved in together, and he has welcomed me and Lily into his bachelor pad with open arms
Half Marathon Training
Sooooooooo. That half marathon that I’m running in 6 weeks.
Training this week was not great. I did a 3.5 mile run last week in Roanoke but I skipped my 6-miler on Sunday. I tried to do it on Monday and Tuesday and it just didn’t happen. I went to the gym on Wednesday night but only lasted 1 mile on the treadmill before I couldn’t take it anymore. The weather here has been so cold and I can’t bring myself to run outside. Hopefully I can get back on track this weekend when it warms up.
Fridays are kind of crazy for me at work so we probably will not do anything too crazy for St. Patrick’s Day. We have brunch plans on Saturday morning and then we are going to see a Hornets game on Saturday night. It will be my first Hornets game so I’m excited!!
What are you up to this weekend?
What is your favorite kitchen appliance/gadget?
