Happenings 1.8.17

Happy Sunday! We are snuggled in at home watching the Packer game and my fingers are crossed for a W. Go Pack Go!

In an effort to document more of our life and blog a little bit more regularly, I thought I’d start a Happenings series – when time allows, I’ll simply share random thoughts and photos – which will hopefully make my monthly recaps posts a teeny bit shorter 🙂

  • For SND I am making roasted brussels sprouts and sweet potato soup.
  • I finished 2 books: Behold the Dreamers and The Dollhouse – EXCELLENT reads. What have your favorites been so far this year?
  • I am down 2.5 pounds since 1/1 – focusing on portion size and limiting sugar/alcohol. I love starting my day with these peanut butter protein bars.
  • We are trying to use up all of our pantry items before moving in 2 weeks – I made cake batter chocolate chip cookies and a version of my baked oatmeal with applesauce, honey, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  • My Nashville Coloring Book has been awesome for stress relief 🙂
  • After meeting with our accountant yesterday, I found out I need to establish an entirely new LLC in Illinois (which means new FIN, bank account, credit card, etc.) – WHY can’t anything be easy?
  • Last night we went to Birchwood Cafe with our friends for dinner – I had a winter-y red wine flight!
  • I met with 2 high schools students who applied to Vanderbilt for alumni interviews – I feel so old!
  • I fly to Phoenix tomorrow for the week!

So tell me, do you like this idea? Do you have any questions for me? Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

    I love this idea!! The only book I’ve "read" (haven’t finished, just started because it was addictive and my BRAND-NEWLY-RETIRED parents were reading it) was The Millionaire Next Door. I’ve got a laundry list of financial advice books to read this year… trying to be way smarter and not waste my youth when we could be investing. (Yikes adulting!) The cake batter cookies sound delightful! I want to try that lemon garlic vinaigrette too — I looove the combo of lemon and garlic. Safe travels to Phoenix this week!
