Happy Sunday, friendly faces!! 🤓
How’s your weekend going? I was up at 3:45am yesterday (I know… but I made the mistake of hopping on my phone and couldn’t fall back asleep), so I spent most of the day in this strange half-awake, punch drunk state and didn’t really get up to anything interesting. It was pretty brutal… and if I seem a little loopy right now, it’s because it’s late and all I can think about is going to bed. I should probably stop putting these off intros to the last minute, eh?
BUT! Between being too tired to put real clothes on and a gloomy day that wasn’t overly inviting, I did manage to get ahead with a bunch of blog work this weekend… which is epic since I’m headed to BC for 10 days next weekend and didn’t want to leave Spoons high and dry. I also took a little trip out to the Y, hoping that a workout would wake me up… which it did for a while, until I crashed hard and spent the rest of the night reading on the couch.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to head to bed [and pray that tomorrow morning isn’t a repeat of today]. Love you guys, and thanks so much for all the sweet comments and messages for Spoons’ birthday! If you missed that [and the brownies that went with it], go check it out! And then enjoy some of the awesome links I came across this week.

Haha, I love the random facts post😆! I was amazed when your brownie recipe was posted at 4am yesterday (at which time it was midday over here in England)!! I know the feeling – surviving on 4 hours of sleep at the moment, lol!😩😖.
Coffee and lemon!! Wow I’m super curious about that one. I can also vouch for bacon and maple syrup. I used to eat it that way all the time growing up.
Peach streusel muffins….I’m pretending the zucchini isn’t there, sound phenomenal. I could eat all the peaches.
Too many blog links today mainly because i want to read them all and have no time. 🙂 🙂
Today: catching up on some blogging, cleaning and cooking in anticipation of my next batch of house guests due to arrive Wednesday.
Yesterday: I went to Nature’s Bin, Breadsmith and made peach grilled cheeses before saying good-bye to my previous house guests.

3 things I did yesterday: boozy brunch, went to a farmer’s market, and went out to a nice dinner with the boy! 3 things I’m doing today: going back to my apartment cause I start classes tomorrow, GROCERY SHOPPING, and laundry. Hahah oh life!
I slept for over 9 hours last night which is so unusual for me! I feel great though so no regrets.
Yesterday I went grocery shopping, did so much laundry, and went to the farmers market.
Today I’m heading to church, getting myself together for my internship that starts tomorrow, and going for a run.

Hope you can make up for some of that sleep today! Now I’m trying to go back to waking up at 5:30 and it’s not working at all. Need a few more days!

Haha, no way! I was up at 3:25 yesterday! I had to take a nap later in the day…..there was no way! I imagine the rest of my week will be like this, pre-back-to-school jitters????
