I am absolutely IN LOVE with this WEATHER! I sure hope it sticks around…
You know how when you’re well you forget how awful it is to be sick? And vice versa? Well in the middle of the winter I long for summer, but I don’t remember it being THIS nice.
Back 2 back parties tonight! First I attended a get-together soiree for Breathe Magazine.
It was a meet n greet held at Mono Loco so Breathe could say hi to the community. They did an awesome job with the spring décor, and couldn’t have picked a more perfect evening!
Mono Loco chips + salsa were munched by me, and I sipped a water when I really wanted a Spice-a-Rita.
I also donated a big box of Great Harvest cookies for the event. I had to leave before dessert, but they were well received : )
Partly #2 was book club!
I just finished [TODAY!] The Magicians Assistant by Ann Patchett. I enjoyed reading the book, but as a plot person, was a bit disappointed, especially with the ending. But the characters were very interesting and it was a good book to discuss! I’m up next for choosing a book and chose Ahab’s Wife: or, The Star Gazer, which I read 5 years ago and loved. It’s a beautiful, poetic, exciting story.
There were 6 of there and a spread of snacks for dinner. A couscous salad, lots of cookies, and lots of cheese, plus hummus and dippers. And wine! I sipped sparkling water that Seamane has on tap spiked with lemon + lime that was wonderful!!
I got there reallllly hungry and left realllly full!
I had two plates this size (note that’s broccoli twice in one day!)
And this plate of sweets is what put me over the top! However now an hour later, the fullness is subsiding and I feel hungry. Confusing! I might have a small cereal snack before bed to try to ward off the middle-of-the-night hunger and see if that helps with the insomnia.
The highlight of my night was snuggling with little E! She’s just a month old and so sweet!
Seamane caught me with her dozing off later on. Call me naïve, but I have no fears about being a mother. Not to say that I won’t encounter plenty of challenges, but I’m just so. excited. to get started.
Back at home, thirsty as a camel and winding down for bed!
