Seriously though… why do the weekends go by so fast?
Actually, it’s not just the weekends. It’s every day. Up at 5, packing lunches, daycare drop off, commuting, millions of emails, driving home, dinner, dishes, pilates, bath time, blog time, pass out, do it again in 5 hours… How is it possible that such mundane things can go by in what feels like the blink of an eye? Yet the cold (allergies?) that I’ve had for two weeks feels like it’s been hanging on for an eternity.
I’m feeling a little better since my last post… I still feel a little bit of a funk hanging on, but I’m trying to ignore it and focus on more positive thoughts. Big thanks to everyone who commented. It means a lot to know that I’m not alone, and also to know that what I’m doing is enjoyed by people I’ve never even met – I mean, how exciting is that?!
So onward and upward – I think it’s going to be a good week.
At least I already know that my breakfast is going to be amazing because I just made my very favorite pumpkin bread recipe.
And I did a little splurging at Whole Foods yesterday. I got these and these and these (finally – they were in-stock!) And I accidentally bought some candy corn that for some reason I thought was vegan but it actually wasn’t due to the egg whites and honey. Um… guess that’s what I get for shopping with a toddler while under the influence of cold medicine. And also, WHY IS THERE NO VEGAN CANDY CORN?! And who the heck puts eggs in candy? There’s no way that’s necessary. Someone needs to make some vegan candy corn, pronto.
I’m trying to find ways to streamline my life wherever possible, which basically means that my hair and make up look like crap a lot while I tell myself I’m trés French. Making a big meal on Sundays that I can have for leftovers during the week has been working out pretty well though. This week it’s my favorite lentil soup. It’s hearty and healthy and basically zero calories. I eat it with pita chips and hummus.
Finally – I’m going to get back to posting outfits and such here this week, but in case you missed it, this is the outfit I posted last week for Vilda Magazine. 100% vegan, bien sûr.
