in what i'm into

…Here’s a little peak at what I’ve been into this past month…

Thebarge-TheInvisibleGirls-book-large

Books: I actually read quite a few books this month, but the only one I’d recommend is The Invisible Girls by Sarah Thebarge. I think I downloaded this book when it was on a Kindle super sale, and I’m so glad I did! (“Twenty-seven-year-old Sarah Thebarge had it all – a loving boyfriend, an Ivy League degree, and a successful career – when her life was derailed by an unthinkable diagnosis: aggressive breast cancer. After surviving the grueling treatments – though just barely – Sarah moved to Portland, Oregon to start over. There, a chance encounter with an exhausted African mother and her daughters transformed her life again.”)

Music: Baby by Justin Bieber and Party Rock Anthem (Anna’s dance favorites), Bruce Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark (my dance favorite), Amos Lee’s Mission Bell. 

Food: Magical White Bean Soup (SO GOOD) and Chicken Fried Rice are just two recipes that have changed my life this month. We’re subscribing to Full Belly Farm’s CSA box again (after 2+ years off) which means I’m trying lots of new recipes. I’m also whipping up some baby food here and there, although I slowed down once realizing Owen spit everything out. Now that he’s eating more I need to pull my Cuisinart back out and get cookin’! Oh, and I finally tried Shauna’s Breakfast Cookies which were a big hit with Jonathan.

TV/Movies:  We snuck out for a date night earlier this month and saw Saving Mr. Banks…and I loved it just as much as I thought I would. And thanks to a friendly visitor named Mastitis, I also worked my way through much of Sister Wives’ latest season on Netflix.

Speaking of being sick, I’m finally taking probiotics. I’ve been giving them to Anna for a few months now but was too cheap to buy them for myself. Our co-op recommended a liquid coconut water version called inner eco. I’m giving it a shot because it was only $13 for a month supply. Do you take probiotics?

Wearing: I’ve officially turned into the yoga pant mom. Since we’ve all been home a lot this month due to illness, I’m rotating between my workout clothes and the two new shirts from Christmas. (A cute Anthro top my mom gave me, and a blue checkered button down from Jonathan.) I’m also super into my Stella and Dot stackable rings, another gift from mom.

Anticipating: The big game! Jonathan is a HUGE Seahawks fan so the whole family will be sporting our gear, eating nachos, and praying. I’ll also be potty training Anna. Wish I’d thought to purchase Seahawks undies to really get in the spirit.
