I know, I KNOW, it's monday... and I swore I would be better about the whole recipe thing... but you guys, it was Grammys weekend so I was working up a storm... at my real job... making people look good. ANYWAYS. Point is, I have a recipe in my brain I would like to put together for you, it will be savory and sweet and delicious all in one; however, I didn't have time to make it in between setting peoples hair to red carpet worthy perfection, I'M SORRY.
So instead I just want to do a little recap of life for you guys. I feel like that's a good thing to do on a Monday right? Sure. Lets just dive in! (see what I did there...)
Where to begin?!... I mean it is 2015 which is mind blowing.
Drew and I are really doing the work these days. As in having major life revelation/alteringly wonderful conversations. Such as- what do we really want? What is important to us? How do we value ourselves/our time? What is our narrative? Kids? (OMG the last one makes me nearly shit my pants every time). We also have deep discussions like- nachos vs. burgers... the never ending debate.
Work is going well (Drew is f-ing [edited for all you kids out there] crushing it!). I am a creative who is constantly afraid of failure which is just something I need to work on. I heard a story the other day about a guy who was so terrified of being rejected that he made it his GOAL to get rejected once A DAY! I feel like that may not be for me, but also, I do feel like I should fail at/be rejected by things more often and learn to be ok with it... little things... like jumping rope or running a mile.
Food is my ever present battle ground (reading food blogs is like porn to me... it is a sick addiction that I am perfectly ok with). I will be traveling a lot this year and I am bound and determined to get my insides in tip top shape so that I can eat (somewhat) normally. Any advice is warmly welcomed.
Drew and I are feeling more and more 'plugged in' (woof) to our community here (someone needs to come up with a better term... we are not electronics after all). We have found 'our people' in LA and it is possibly the best feeling ever (dear friends and family, you are not being replaced, promise).
I have been reading like a crazy person. I am currently reading, Edible Selby, the latest issue of Monocle and I want to re-read Daring Greatly because it is the best book ever written. I'm currently into all the books by 99% U and I just finished reading The ZimZum of Love (really good)...I also just finished reading ALL of the Harry Potter books for the second time, don't judge, they are amazing.
As I mentioned last week, we have been obsessed with NewsRoom (just finished season 1, all I can say is- HOLY SHIT). The Imitation Game is beyond amazing, go see it. And Bobs Burgers will forever and always make me (us) happy.
There is a lot more to tell, but somethings just need to marinade a little before they are tossed into the frying pan that is life on the internet (see... my mind KNOWS I should be posting a recipe right now, I am using cooking analogies for crying out loud!). While I would love to divulge all the juicy details you will simply have to wait until the timing is right.
How are you doing these days? I hope you are well and ready for the week ahead.
