Gratitude Project - Week 41

Long time, no post. Wow! What a week. As I write this it is Sunday night. I haven't opened up my computer since Wednesday. That's how you know that you're living life! My birthday is on Wednesday and we've done a whole lot of celebrating the past week since Wednesdays aren't the best days to do all the fun things. I plan on doing a full update post of what I've been up to lately. Oh! And expect a new fall breakfast recipe to come your way very soon.

DAY 281

Impromptu trip to Pittsburgh to check out the new menu at Eden. Darrin and I vote 10/10 for it! We hardly finished the meal before planning our next trip back!

DAY 282

Darrin is working in Canada currently and we typically only get some of Saturday and Sunday morning to hang out. Since Canadian Thanksgiving is tomorrow we got to have our Sunday afternoon adventure time which I enjoy so much. The leaves are starting to change and I love walking all around the woods to check them out.

DAY 283

I ran out of bananas on accident and that called for an emergency trip to the grocery store for more. I hit the jackpot and got a ton of "overripe" bananas for extra cheap. Lucky day!

DAY 284

Last week I got the idea to make part of my attic into a yoga space. Why did I not think of that before?! I have no idea. But it just came to me one day and I knew that I had to make it happen. So I went up and started working on it. I organized and moved things around. I vacuumed and wiped things down. I sneezed. A lot. I also had fun doing it. The goal was to make it feel more like a space that I can spend a lot of time in and not feel crowded with things; a place to grow my practice and clear my mind. I finished doing stuff tonight and I realized how excited I was. Back when I first started practicing I used to get so excited to just spend a ton of time working on things I wanted to improve. Somewhere along the way I lost the drive to just play around with handstands, arm balances, and whatever else seemed fun at the time. Once I could do a lot of those things I think I kind of lost that spark. But why stop? I don't know. I don't even think I realized it. I was just stuck in the routine of my hour long practice at 6 a.m. and that was that. But now that I've worked on creating this new space I've realized that I want to create space in my life to play again. I'm excited about it. And I think it's going to take me to some great places.

DAY 285

I don't buy a lot of foods like this cookie dough because it's not available in my area and because it's kind of pricey. I felt the need to grab this at Whole Foods the other day though and holy man, it is amazing!! I am in love with this!

DAY 286

Tonight I went to the first Pens game of the season with my mom. We stopped for shakes at Burgatory before the game and had such a fun night!! I'm so excited for hockey season now... and for more future milkshakes :)

DAY 287

I had to go pick up my birthday cake tonight. I didn't want to go alone so I took Roxy with me. We grabbed the cake, hit up Petco, PetSmart, Lowes, and Starbucks. I wish more places were dog friendly! I had such a fun evening with my little furry friend!


That's all for this week! Thanks for joining. Much love. xx
