Life lately

  • I just realized that I have Friday off because of Good Friday.  What a pleasant surprise!
  • This also means that I can start eating meet again starting Sunday — I wonder what my first bite should be!
  • I’ve been going to a ladies golf clinic 3 days a week and I absolutely LOVE it.  There are only 4 of us in the clinic so we get a lot of hands on attention.  I also really like the pros method of teaching us which was to start from putting and work up to a full swing.  So far, we’re up to pitching! 
  • I have not been doing a good job of running.  I have been doing a good job of getting dressed in my running clothes on weekend mornings in hopes of running later that day though.  That should hopefully count for something.
  • I’m attempting an “urban” garden by planting some veggies and herbs in a window box that is going to hang off my balcony.   I bought everything I needed but then I checked the weather forecast and saw it was going to snow so now all the plants are in my living room.
  • I look forward to eating 100 Cadbury creme eggs come Monday.

Goat cheese, carmelized onion & spinach quesadilla.
Made these for dinner last week—turned out great!

Amazingly have goat cheese and an abundance of onions…I might have to try these.

About two weeks ago, I accepted a new position at work.  It happened very suddenly and while I love so many things about my current job, the opportunity was too good to pass up. 

The announcement came out Thursday and I was overwhelmed by the amount of notes of congratulations that I was sent by people all around the office.  It wasn’t just people I currently work with or people who I’m going to be working with but people from all across my time in the company (which is currently just shy of 8 years). 

One of the reasons I love this company is because of the culture and all of the wonderful people who work here.  I arrived at work Friday morning to this message on my white board from the two people who never fail to make me remember that work can be fun too.

Just the idea of a leather dress makes me start to sweat but nevertheless, this dress is pretty awesome.

It’s another beautiful day in Indianapolis and I’m spending it indoors cranking out my last marketing assignment and working on my final paper for the same class.  Aside from the final, these are the last two deliverables in the class.  And aside from the weekend I take the final, I dare to say this will be the last weekend I spend indoors working on homework instead of outside enjoying the warm weather. 

28 days until I walk.

21 days until my last final of my graduate school career.

3 years in the making but I’m almost done with grad school!!

green chickpea + chicken coconut curry

I could probably eat green curry every day and never get sick of it.  There is a delicious Thai restaurant close to my office and I have to resist ordering take-out every single day.  EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.  But I love it so much!! 

This recipe will be attempted as a financially friendlier version.

The greatest bag ever

I was reading Jaclyn’s post about versatile work bags and I’m kind of obsessed with this Lo & Sons O.M.G. bag.  I watched the video of everything she put inside it and I immediately decided that I need this bag. 

The truth is, I don’t need this bag but it’s pretty great so I thought I’d pass it on to you guys in case one of you do.  And then if you do buy it, please post lots of pictures of all its greatness so that I can live vicariously through you.
