Hello weekend! I’ve been waiting for you since Monday. I’m only kidding…well kinda. The truth is I see so little of Brian during the week with his crazy work schedule that I cherish the weekends with him. Although, we have been implementing a Wednesday date night to try to change that. Our weekend is going to be pretty mellow. Tonight we are going to see a movie- maybe Lucy? Has anyone seen it? Tomorrow morning I will most likely go to a yoga class- I haven’t gone to a class all week.! I’ve been naughty. Tomorrow afternoon we are meeting an old friend and her fiance for happy hour drinks. I’m really looking forward to reconnecting with her. Sunday we have absolutely nothing on the books- my favorite! I’m thinking maybe another yoga class then I might tackle a new recipe. I have been pinning vegetarian recipes on pinterest like a mad woman. I think it might be time to actually make one. What do you guys have planned for the weekend??

what inspired me this week?

the project 30 q&a’s on the blog this week- both Amber and Jadis are such interesting and inspiring women. I’m lucky they said yes to participating!

the connectivity of project 30. When I first started the project all the women answering the questions were people I personally knew. But in the last few months it has grown to include fabulous women I’ve never even met. This week one was even from the UK! Each one of these ladies has truly inspired me.

how to avoid the comparison game 

what am I grateful for this week?

 CityDog Club– I stumbled upon this amazing dog day care near us and it is a total game changer. They even have webcams set up so you can watch your dog play! When Frank got home from his day there he went straight to bed. I can’t even remember the last time Brian and I sat through dinner without Frank obnoxiously rubbing his beloved tennis ball on our feet.

my relationship with my “little sister” Briana. I plan on sharing more about her/us next week. I think the Big Brother Big Sister program is pretty amazing. I’m so grateful I followed through with it because she has been an incredible addition to my world.

what surprised me this week?

how much I enjoy eating vegetarian. I thought I would be bored but I’m not at all! The love I now have for vegetarian burritos knows no limits.

    I was wondering about that movie myself! Love the weekly date night idea. Also, I’m going to post a recipe for Mexican Chicken Pizza tomorrow- it would be delish without the chicken for your veggie extravaganza! xx

    “Lucy” is another variation on Scarlett’s “what if” roles, which she started with “Her”. I loved this latest film, and spent a long time afterward, thinking about the implications of full-tilt technology. The cartoonish gangster is a minor distraction. Scarlett’s performance is riveting.

    I ended up going vegetarian for a little over two years (I ended it when I found out I was pregnant!) It was surprisingly more enjoyable than I assumed it would be. The only tough times were when I went to my parents house for dinner. My mom makes the best pork tenderloin and grilled steaks! 🙂
