I’ve been distracted from blogging recently. Lots going on at work, etc. But I need to sneak in a Mother’s Day recap – one week tardy – and there are a few things that I’ve been obsessing over. Including but not limited to….
We’ve been loving big, hearty salads as dinner entrees recently and I bet that will continue to be the case as the weather gets warmer and warmer. They’re refreshing and light, but as long as meat is included, my appetite remains sated til breakfast.
I’m obsessed with my new car! We went with a 2016 Honda CRV and it’s fantastic. Her name is Pearl and she’s just that – a gem. I also love that Lisa has been enjoying Blue. Blue is in a good home and that makes me happy. Weirdly obsessed with my cars? …Fact.
This documentary about four guys who take 12 mustangs from Mexico to Canada. Recommended to me by my childhood friend, Tana, it’s called Unbranded and we watched it on Netflix. The scenery they cover is gorgeous and makes me want to visit all the national parks between here and Canada. And I fell in love with all the horses.
Watching “Unbranded” opened our eyes to all the documentary options on Netflix. We’ll be diving into those more often. We recently watched “Three Stars” which is about Michilen restaurants. Interesting, but it basically just confirmed that we’ll choose Dion’s (a local pizza/sandwich/salad place) over those fancy restaurants any day of the week.
I’ve also been into a few shows on Netflix. I watched the two seasons of “Lipstick Jungle”, which was easy and fun. “New Girl” has been a new favorite. My sister recommended “The Ranch” and “Blue Bloods” and “Baby Daddy”. Kevin may be into the former two so we may try those together, but I’ll probably tackle the latter on my own when I’m done with “New Girl”.
I’ve been dabbing Supergood CC Cream on the ol’ face these days and am really liking the coverage, lightness of it, and that it’s is paraben, oxybenzone, and fragrance free.
My first Mother’s Day with little Ava on the outside was really special. We went to breakfast at Weck’s to start the day.
Ava and Kevin (probably definitely mostly Kevin) conspired to make me the perfect gift on Shutterfly and now it’s on my desk at work and makes me smile every time I see it.
Kevin paired it with a lovely, heartfelt note in a card and I just feel so lucky to have him and Ava (and Kiki and Rue) in my life. We made dinner for his parents that night – he grilled some cedar plank salmon (this recipe) and asparagus with prosciutto and it was soooo amazingly delicious. The weather was perfect, the roses were blooming, and the sweet little baby who made me a mother was right there for it all.
What do you recommend on Netflix – documentaries or shows? What are you obsessing over recently?
