7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
Let's just say I've been trying to manage pain all week... and working hard to keep my foot elevated. I've seen improvement every day, but I had no idea that it would eat up a week of my life. All because of a stupid toenail. LOL.
If you haven't thanked your big toe yet today for serving you, g'ahead and knock yourself out.
So, I'll admit that for the first few days, I watched TV. A lot. And I've now got "favorite" shows for different purposes... And my favorite show to fall asleep to? Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. I love to fall asleep to people cleaning and organizing, turns out. It's also a little bit ironic to lay in bed for 5 days, barely able to get to a bathroom, and sit in bed thinking about how dirty and disorganized your house is getting... while you watch other people get inspired...
8 years ago this past Monday, Brian and I drove to a surprise date location and when I saw BOATS, I thought to myself, "If he's not proposing here, what other stops could he pull?" But, I immediately decided to simply enjoy the day and not worry about it... and yes. He did propose on this awesome boat and I said yes. And I'm SO grateful for that!
Thanks for the engagement photos, Melanie Reyes Photography :)
This article in the NYT on SmittenKitchen has already circulated, but if you haven't taken a peek, go for it! She's one of my favorite sources for recipes... and this weekend, I'll be whipping up her Fudgy Chocolate Sheet Cake for Rowan's birthday... because it's my favorite. haha. I just re-read that and realized how selfish it sounded. #MomLife
