Thinking…that I haven’t posted anything for over a week. And because of that I thought I’d try to give you a slightly fancier post than usual. This is it. It’s inspired by Cassie from back to her roots who does these types of posts regularly. I hope you enjoy my version but you should go check out her blog too. I really enjoy the writing and pictures to the point that the content doesn’t really even matter, not to say that she doesn’t write about some fun things.

Feeling…excited that I’m getting furniture delivered today and am finally getting the bookcase that I’ve wanted since high school.


Watching…The Wizards of Waverly Place. It’s a Disney show featuring Celena Gomez as a teenage wizard. I’m pretty sure the target audience is 12 years old which means it suits my tastes perfectly.

Reading…textbooks. I start teaching two separate Introduction to Nutrition classes in 11 days so I’m trying to get all of my materials ready.

Listening…to the ACL 2013 playlist I made on Grooveshark.

Excited…about the trips I have planned for October. I’m going to the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Houston where I will get to learn a ton, catch up with some RD friends, and pick up some swag. I’m also going to the Austin City Limits Music Festival which for me means time to chill out with fancy friends.

Missing…friends. While I love moving around and experiencing different parts of the country, I do miss the friends I leave behind.

Wondering…when it’s going to start warming up again. It’s only August but the weather makes it feel like fall. Not that I’m complaining. I’ll take any excuse to warm up with a chai latte or Mexican mocha.

Hot Drink

Working…on so many things: sending out the first newsletter for the year for the Durham – Chapel Hill Dietetic Association; building a Pinterest page for the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group; writing a social media article for Surround Health; updating nutrition education materials for work; preparing for my classes this semester; and the list goes on.

Stressed…about how expensive furniture is.

Proud…that I can run 3 miles in less than 30 minutes. Now to enter a 5K so my speediness will be recorded for all to see.

Thankful…that there’s a product that can make my armpits smell like cucumbers.

Wanting…more opportunities to spend time with the kitties.


Wishing…I got paid more. Don’t we all?

Eating…fresh veggies from the Raleigh City Farm. Okra, grape tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, tomatillos, and giant zucchini.

Drinking…chai lattes and free coffee from my apartment lobby.

Loving…my friends. They’re kind of awesome.
