I've been a bad blogger, I know. But I just saw this on another blog and thought it would be fun to fill in! I'll return with some race recaps and Refine Method thoughts soon!
I just finished The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman, and LOVED it. Such a great read! It was interesting, well-written, suspenseful and just plain good. I love when a book has it all.
Since I finished that on Monday, I've moved on to Swimming at Night by Lucy Clarke. I'm less than 100 pages in, but I'm already drawn to the characters and like the writing style. The story is intriguing and I'm excited to see where it goes!
The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Over and over and over again. I can't say I usually love Lana Del Rey, but Young and Beautiful is an awesome track. I listen to it on repeat because I'm cool like that. I keep thinking about how awesome a spin class to this soundtrack would be.
Current Guilty Pleasure
Trader Joe's chocolate-covered sea salt butterscotch caramels. Addictive. I have a little handful every night! Running out and will need more soon...
Current Nail Color
None. But I'm planning on a mani/pedi on Sunday and I plan to go for something bright, fun and springy!
Nothing in particular...but I did have a little glass of the most delicious glass of whisky at an event I worked the other night (it was for a client of ours that's a whisky company!). Not usually a whisky fan but MAN this was delicious. Looking forward to enjoying a beer or two at GoogaMooga tonight!
Again, nothing in particular. Excited for the food carts at GoogaMooga!
Current Favorite Show
Parks & Rec! I watched all of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix and needed a new show. Since I have a crush on Amy Poehler, saw Aziz Ansari live (when he surprised the Comedy Cellar to try out new material!), and LOVE Rob Lowe, I figured it would be a good show to move on to - I was right! I seriously laugh out loud in every episode and really enjoy it.
I'm also making my way through House of Cards - Kevin Spacey is amazing in it. I think I have five episodes left, and I have no doubt that it will keep up with twists and turns.
And I can't wait for Arrested Development!!! I saw the banana stand in NYC this week (did NOT wait in line though) and it got me super pumped!
Current Wish List
A trip! I studied abroad in Paris and am YEARNING (can't think of a better word that sums it up!) to go back there. I'm currently torturing myself by subscribing to the Instagram accounts of Paris in Four Months, Lost In Cheeseland and Will She Love Paris, which all post stunning photos of the city (it's hard to take a bad picture of Paris though, let's be honest).
Much as I want to go to Paris, I'd go pretty much anywhere right now...London, Morocco, Egypt, Brazil, Australia, etc...basically, I want a trip.
Haircut, new glasses, fruit, vegetables and other groceries. And a RUN! I've run a couple miles here and there since the Long Branch Half, but no more than 2 miles. Today I'd like to go for 4 or 5...we'll see!
Levain Bakery. I have a thing for their blueberry muffins, and treated myself to one this morning!
Yoga pants, tank top, glasses, hair in a bun. It's the classic "it's Friday and I'm working from home for half a day" look that all the glossies are talking about.
GOOGAMOOGA! Nice spring weather! Getting into the Army 10 Miler! Signing up for ZOOMA Half Cape Cod! Extending my Refine Method Resolution program to the Maintenance program! HOLDING A PLANK FOR 5 WHOLE MINUTES!!! All things worthy of exclamation points and all things making me super excited right now!
