Hello loves! I hope everyone's Monday is going well! I'm headed East to spend some time with family this week and I'm so excited. Any chance I can get to "venture out", I take it! I hope you all are enjoying more of my style posts on here! My traveling is somewhat on hold so I'm trying to give other elements of the blog more attention. Plus, I'm trying very hard to create/publish new,consistent content for you all! Not to mention I've got an exciting project I'm working on which I'll be able to tell you all about towards the end of this month.
But for now, I'm looking to replace some of my older series with something fresh! If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you know on Mondays I usually post a #SimplyMondayMusings post--just things I find online and in life that I like and get my brain working.That kind of fizzled out, so I'm trying a new series, "What's Good?" with you all. It takes a peek into my life and what I'm getting in to on a weekly basis. I hope this makes our blogger-reader relationship more personal and relatable, so here we go!
What I'm Reading...
I just finished Sandcastle Kings this past weekend and really enjoyed it. If you're needing a spiritual rejuvenation, this book by Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. is a definite must! It's easy to read and Pastor Rich is so relatable. I'm currently rotating between Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling and the literary classic To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I'm only a few chapters in to Why Not Me? and this book is hilarious! I guess it doesn't help that I'm reading it with Mindy's voice in my mind, huh? And I think it's always a good thing to re-read books you read when you were younger. I remember first picking the book up in junior high, so by reading it again at an older age, it's like reading from a new perspective.
What I'm Eating...
I am slowly finding myself cooking more and more and grabbing take out less and less. Of course the fact that grocery shopping is a little easier on my wallet, but it's actually easier on my digestive system too. I just finished 21 days without junk food and sugary snacks and thought it would be a great idea to have donuts for breakfast--no bueno. I'm learning more and more about what my body likes and doesn't like, so I'm attempting to make more meals at home. The picture above is a chicken thigh over a quinoa & brown rice mix with fresh carrots. I post most of my cooking on snapchat (margggg58) so be sure to follow along!
What I'm Watching...
As if reading Mindy Kaling's book isn't enough, I'm attempting to watch all 4 seasons in the next seven days before my free Hulu promo ends. If you've never watched it, it is insanely funny! SO funny that I'll probably cave and get an actual subscription to Hulu so I can watch the second half of season four this Spring!
What I'm Wanting...
With my birthday right around the corner, I've got my eyes set on these snakeskin print mules from the Truffle Collection. My love for mules is growing more and more and I could absolutely care less whether they're in season or not! I can easily pair these with a little black dress, blue jeans, or even a simple office look. Fingers crossed I can grab them before they sell out!
Have a great day and be sure to visit the blog again tomorrow!
