Watching | Game of Thrones
> Just finished season 4! So much better the second time around. We also saw The Hitman’s Bodyguard which was funny, but we saw best parts in the trailers so it was also a bit disappointing, watch for Salma Hayek, she has a mouth in this one!
Reading | The Girl in the Spider’s Web
I actually bought The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye and was all excited to read it because it’s the continuation of the Stieg Larsson’s series with the Lisbeth Salander character (Girl and the Dragon Tattoo, etc.) But then I noticed it was book 5. The Girl in the Spider’s Web which is book 4 came out in September 2015 right when I was in the thick of putting our house on the market, so I totally missed it. Bonus reads!
I’m also super stoked to read Dan Brown’s latest, The Templars which just released on Monday, I’ve got to find lots of reading time!
Working On | 2018.
> Mr. Misadventures and I have big plans for the blog and the business next year. We are mapping out a site redesign, content and he and I are going to work together, otherwise known as a workflow.
Feeling | Happy!
> As of Monday, I am a homeowner again! We bought a 3-bedroom home in the Valley of the Sun, otherwise known as the greater Phoenix area and I can’t wait to get into it. We have a little bit of work with tile and paint before we can actually move in, but I’m super excited to have a permanent place of our own again. I haven’t seen our “stuff” for 2 years so it will be really interesting to unpack.
Planning | A trip to Albuquerque
> We’re heading to the balloon festival in Albuquerque the first week of October so I am getting prepped for that. There are close to one million people who descend on the city, so we are heavily strategizing our game plan.
Loving | Low carb lifesavers.
> I’ve lost over 32 pounds with only 2.5 pounds to go to reach my goal. There were definitely some food stars that help make my low carb high protein lifestyle easier, I call them my low carb lifesavers. Bagels and sourdough bread from the Great Low Carb bread company (they have great chocolate muffins too!), Simply Lite dark chocolate with almonds from Trader Joe’s and ice cream bars from both Arctic Zero and Enlightened. The thing about these treats is that they use alcohol sugar which you subtract from the total carbs – it’s the wave of the future and I hope to see more food brands using this to reduce the bad sugar content.
My Favorite Photo | Be Kind.
For more than a decade I have flipped my mental life on its head and approached life with a very positive outlook. I believe in kindness, that you should trust first and be happy. I was so touched to see these Be Kind murals all over the city on our recent weekend in Tucson, it tells me a lot about a place that promotes kindness.
