Hello! Just like that, it's Friday again and it's time to catch up on the week that was. So let's jump right into it!
Here's what's been happening in our world recently! >>
Recently Thankful For: ALL THE THINGS! Good health news, hope, incredible friends, an amazing husband who puts up with my INSANE work load at the moment, a cozy bed to fall into at the end of the day and sweet baby puppies.
Recent Laughs: This gluten free fail Danni sent me from her date night. Gruten free, anyone?
Recently Wishing: I had this awesome Plush Campfire Set as a kid. SO STINKING CUTE!
Recent Weather: Let's go with blah, blah and more blah... shall we?
I am SO over dreary grey skies and on and off rain. Where are you, blue skies?!
Recent Success: Lots of delicious baking! This was Jesse eating vegan double chocolate chip muffin batter on the weekend 😜

Recently Planning: My new home office! We're repainting a spare bedroom and fitting it out as an office for myself and I am SO excited. I've worked out the desk situation and now I'm just hunting for all the little bits and pieces.
Right now the top things on my list are; a cute chair (I LOVE that one above) and a nice rug to add a pop of colour or pattern and I'm waiting on fabric samples to come back for the couch we're going to put in there too!
Recent Crankiness: On Sunday morning, I was minding my own business, walking around the park and listening to my podcast when this guy on a bike rides past me, slows down, looks me in the eye and says "lovely ass".
My blood boiled.
I think it was the fact that he looked me in the eye to say it that made it even worse but I was SO mad and he's lucky he was riding on a bike because I couldn't run after him and give him a piece of my mind.
AND THEN to make things even worse, it started pouring out of nowhere and I had to climb the big hill home because that was the fastest way out.
Recently Reading: ALL THE BOOKS. I swear the local charity book store gets excited the second I walk through the door because they know I've come back for my weekly purchases 😜
I also read the book I mentioned a week or so ago - the prequel to the random book my sister had lying around the house that I read. I can't say I loved it. It was good, but the first book was just pointing to the second book and the second book recapped so much of the first that I already knew what was happening.
That and it ended almost like the writer had a page limit and was like "oh crap! I've got to finish this book in three seconds"... which would be good if you hadn't read the second book but even so - the ending was like "huh?! what just happened?" because one second a house was burning down and the next you jump forward three months and all these things have happened with no explanation as to how they got there.
Recent Recipes: This week on the blog I shared the most AMAZING Healthy Vegan No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe as well as this Ham, Cheese and Asparagus Frittata Recipe 💓
But tell me, how has your week been?
What's on your "want list" this week?
