“I’ve been fighting with one arm behind my back. What happens when I’ve been set free?” – Captain Marvel
This past week has been emotionally exhausting, yet productive. I worked hard and was able to check some major items off of my to-do list. If anyone knows me, you know my to-do lists are a major thing for me. If it’s written down, it happens. If it isn’t, that’ll be a no. Another reason I am pretty sure, Rory Gilmore is based after me (still waiting for my royalty check, Amy).
In the midst of my crazy, anxiety-ridden life, there are five things I have enjoyed this week and hopefully you will too!
One // Hydroflask
I researched for a few months, whether or not a Hydroflask was worth the price. After talking to a few coworkers and researching reviews online, I decided to join the club. For my birthday, I bought myself the 32 oz. double-walled water bottle in mint green. They have discounted that color, which is why I bought it at the sale price. It did not disappoint. I have found I drink more water and it stays cold all day.
Two // Sparking Joy
As many of you know from my previous post, I have been slowly, but surely organizing my life. It takes time. It is frustrating and you do not see results immediately. But, take heart dear reader, I can assure you it is worth the headache. I will post a video soon of the process of decluttering and organizing.
Three // Parenthood
I know I am late to get on a Parenthood kick, but it is so good! I’m on the fourth season now and I’m hooked. My mom has recommended if for years, however, I was having trouble seeing Lauren Graham in any other role than Gilmore Girls. Have no fear fellow Gilmore Girls fans; although, her character does remind me of Lorelia, it did not affect the show. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be thankful for your crazy, messed up family too.
Four // Captain Marvel
“I have nothing to prove to you.” – Captain Marvel. Preach girl. So I’ll be honest Captain Marvel was not my favorite Marvel movie; HOWEVER, I enjoyed it and it was needed in order to see Nick Fury’s history. Being an avid Marvel fan (I just completed a Marvel marathon, in preparation for Avengers: Endgame), there were several things lacking that I always expect in a Marvel film. Conclusion, watch it. See what you think. Share your thoughts with me. If you are new to the series (what have you been doing with your life?), don’t judge based on this film.
Five // Fruits and Veggies
Usually when the sun finally comes out after a long winter, my mood instantly lifts: not this year. For some reason this spring has been one of the most difficult. I don’t know why, but my body has been craving fruits and veggie more than usual. I’ve always been a fruit fanatic, but lately that’s all I’ve been wanting. Obviously, my body is lacking something right now. So in the meantime I’ll be over here scouring Pinterest for more yummy recipes.
Let me know what has given you joy this week!
Until next time,
