Take 287

7 Quick Takes Friday

You hate to dwell on it... but sometimes you start to realize how those, "Yeeeeah" moments are coming... and coming... and coming...

  • Ralphing. In our house. 4 times this week. Thankfully, our aim is improving.
  • I dropped a 5 inch pot with a succulent in my dining room. (And yes. My soccer skills are still there. I caught it with the top of my foot... like a soccer ball. Like a genius. Ouch.)
  • In an effort to pull the "continue pumping" lever on the gas pump, the nozzle came out and I sprayed gasoline on my knee high leather boots. From Børn. (Ordered this.) Oh. And my sweet winter coat. It's been washed twice and still smells like a gas station.
  • I made pizza dough last night. And forgot about it. Uncovered. All night.

Weekend me.

BUT! 10 days of yoga in a row?! Killin' it. Hah. So, even if all of those things above happened, at least I'm still strong in the core, breathing deeply, and all namaste like.

What's your favorite flower to bring home? My heart is totally stolen by ranunculus. Swoon.

Have you smelled a bottle of liquid smoke before? This stuff is insane. It's weird like frosting chapstick is weird. However, it's always a welcome addition to BBQ slow cooked meals. You know what's crazy? It's readily available in Germany... much to my surprise.

I had a few days left from my 2017 vacation days... and Yes. I spaced them out over three weeks. This means that I will not work a full week until April 9. #Winning 
And we get both Good Friday and Easter Monday off in Germany. Gotta love a culture that gives you a day off for both fasting AND feasting. Awesome.

Hey Moms! I keep giving my daughter peanuts and raisins... and then she yells, "Fertig!" (Done!) and then hands me this:

At what point do I just give in and serve her raisins only? I feel like this is an important parenting moment. This girl. just. won't. eat. peanuts.

Prost to International Women's Day... putting on my dancing shoes with women from work and hittin' the town this weekend! 

Happy Friday!
