I’m going to jump right in to my five today. Happy weekend!
ONE: I finally joined a CSA! It was hard for me to pull the trigger on it, because it looks expensive at first (when you break it down and compare it to grocery costs, it isn’t more than what I’d normally spend). But I’m so glad I joined, and I can’t wait to receive my first box. Dana from Organic Eater was helpful in leading me in the right direction, and I’ll now be getting bi-weekly organic, local produce from Bell’s Best Berries farm, along with pastured eggs. Woohoo! If a huge box of produce seems overwhelming, here’s some helpful tips from The Kitchn with 3 simple ways to use any vegetable in your CSA box. I will try to keep my blog updated with how I use my produce through the Summer.
TWO: Another thing I’ve been thinking about forever and decided to do this week was to cut my hair. She cut 5-6 inches off in the back, and 4-5 inches off in the front. I was so attached to my long hair, and I’m not really sure why. I’m enjoying it shorter, but am still trying to figure out how to fix it. The first picture is the day it was cut and dried at the salon. I did not like my hair straight when it was long, but I can wear it straight now! The second picture is from last night, when I used a curling iron to create some loose waves.
THREE: Todd and I have started personal fitness challenges. We each have a list of workout goals we’re aiming to achieve between now and Memorial Day, and my muscles already hurt! All the details are on yesterday’s blog post. Here is my challenge:
FOUR: In other health news, I tried kombucha for the first time this week. Any recommendations for other great brands or flavors? The ginger flavor was great. I don’t know why it took me so long to try. It was interesting at first, but I really liked it and have been craving another.
FIVE: I read this quote a couple weeks ago, right after Todd had brought me coffee in the morning. I completely agree! It’s just the best.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
