What I'm Loving | 02/04/2018

There's a big football game on today, which means the Puppy Bowl is on and there are plenty of snacks to go around! WhatImLoving-2.4.18

I'm (obviously) not super into sports, but we're going to a watch party with some friends we haven't seen in awhile and it will be great to catch up! I love any excuse to whip out the party food, and today I'm making a ridiculously simple bean dip with homemade refried beans. We don't keep a lot of appetizers or unhealthy snacks around the house, so I'll take any excuse to splurge!

Also, in case you missed it, I got an article published on Monday about some of our recent hikes in the Oakland area! Aside from hiking, here's what I'm loving lately:

Books :: I wrapped up  Beloved this week, and it was a great read! I went into it thinking it would be much different than it was, but ended up pleasantly surprised. I'm now reading Angela's Ashes, a memoir about growing up in Depression-era Ireland. It's heartbreaking, but fantastic. Memoirs don't always flow well, but this one almost feels like reading a novel!

Listening :: I've been catching up on podcasts this week because I let myself get quite behind! Since I never drive/commute, I don't have many time slots where I can listen to someone talking while simultaneously doing other tasks. I do love the informative nature of it, though. I think I've mentioned it on the blog before, but Drunk Safari is the best. Real animal facts + real laughter = my fave.

Spare Time :: It's been perfectly warm in the afternoons, so I've been going for walks every day! I get a bit of extra exercise, and the sun exposure my poor, pale legs definitely need.

Style :: I've had my eye on felt letter boards for a while now, but word on the street is that they're featured in the Target dollar spot. I'm obsessed with quotes and typography, so I think these are perfect to jazz up a small shelf or picture wall.
