As I am currently working in the online division of a university (teaching writing) and I am about to start teaching 2 online literature courses I have found myself wanting to throw my computer out the window. I feel like I live with a keyboard in front of my face at ALL times. Consequently, in the hour of free times I can squeeze out each day, the LAST place I want to be is in front of my computer. This is why I have been sort of the worst blogger ever lately. SORRY!
However, I am going to try my hardest to be a good little blogger this week! So I am going to begin this week on a positive note–with a list of my current favorite things! There are several things I am REALLY loving right now:
1) Iced Tea:
I am really LOVING iced tea. I got back on an iced tea kick when I was at the conference with Mumsie last month. She is an avid tea drinker and it tastes sooo good to me right now. I have a feeling the unseasonably warm weather right now is definitely adding to the deliciousness! I think I am going to buy a few limes and try to make lime-infused iced tea tomorrow!
For some reason I completely missed the ALIAS boat 10 years ago. However, Chase and I decided to add it to our Netflix queue and Chase and I are officially addicted! It is so good. Jennifer Garner is so stinking cute. I also love that each episode is like a mini movie. Any other fans out there?
3) Strawberries: I picked up a GIANT package of strawberries at the store this weekend and they are almost gone. They taste AMAZING. I feel like I can taste summer in each and every bite. Have you ever tried coconut butter on strawberries–trust me, you should.
4) Neighborhood Walks: I have been going on so many walks with the babies lately. Soaking in a bit of sun is simply wonderful. Also, having lived in an apartment the last 5 years, I LOVE walking in their neighborhood. I miss living in a neighborhood. I love all of the friendly waves and dreaming about which house I would pick.
5) Peeps Store: No, this is not a mirage–this store actually exists and it just opened 3 miles away from us! Since the Peeps factory is in Bethlehem (the city where I live), it is basically the Peep factory of the world. They JUST opened this store and it is basically Peep heaven! While I do not actually like the taste of Peeps, I cannot get over how cute they are and the level of adorableness that is this store.
How can you not love a giant Peep Bunny pillow?!
What are your favorite things right now?
