1. quick snap before heading out for dinner and wearing my new forever 21 dress 2. ocean walk, always 3. scout, our favourite little adventurer 4. sushi date with my hubby

is that the sound of little blogging crickets? haha, yup, it just might be. i had lofty plans for this week but then a sore throat happened, and it brought with it the most relentless insomnia... my two unwelcome guests, as i've appropriately named them. also, you may be scratching your head and thinking, hey, things look a little different around here. well, that's what happens when your husband is out of town and you have time on your hands + a good glass of chardonnay. yes, i chose coding over going out & socializing. so it goes. don't pretend you haven't done the same. ;)

other high hopes for this week include: um, what happened to my weekly exercise plan? flu or no flu. yoga is on the horizon. as is meeting up with my girlfriend for snacks and wine. hello sabrina! the most adventurous and fun loving gal you'll ever meet. she's spent the last year traveling and teaching in shanghai, and i'm so looking forward to seeing her beautiful face.

lastly, with much excitement, i installed disqus on the blog. yay, right?! each week, you guys leave such wonderful comments and i feel like we should keep the party going. so that's me. what's going on with you?

13 sweet notes:

  1. I love your new hair so much and I hope you're feeling better ://// Sounds like this week may be better for you! I'm also trying to get my exercise on, so hard to follow through on. I hate working out. Anywho, you look beautiful!

  5. I love your haircut, V! As much as I will always be a long hair girl at heart, sometimes a nice chop can be so refreshing. So sorry to hear you've been feeling under the weather, but as a very stubborn yoga practitioner, I can honestly say that sticking with it in spite of feeling bad is the best thing - except maybe when you do downward facing dog with a runny nose, ha ha. Cannot wait to see your beautiful face so soon - will be sending you an email soon!
    xox,
    Cee

  10. Oh my gosh, I am NOT an exercise girl. More like a sit on my tooch and drink wine kind of girl. But with age (sigh!) I'm finding I have to force myself. ;) Hope you're having a super duper week, gorgeous!! xo

  13. I'm just popping over from Cee's blog :) I've been struggling a little with my yoga lately. I do some everyday though - even if it's only 10-12 minutes in the evening before I go to sleep. I find trying to do a little everyday makes it a little easier...in the long run ;)
