It’s Friday and I am HERE for it. It’s been a long week around here and I’m ready for some good food, great weather (60 in Minneapolis!!), and lots of time outside. I’m sure I’ll find myself in the kitchen at some point, of course. Today I’m sharing a few things I’ve been loving lately – from interesting articles, things we all need to know, and some fun stuff for living. Happy Friday, y’all!
A Few Good Reads
Wednesday was the start of Lent, where many people often choose something to “give up” for the 40 days leading up to Easter. I loved this idea of 40 days of giving instead.
I’ve long been fascinated with mountaineering (I blame Jon Krakauer and his 1997 book Into Thin Air) and this article is fascinating.
How UltraMarathoners Are Pushing The Human Body Beyond All Limits. These athletes are just amazing.
I read this article simply because of the title and it’s delightful: My Ex-Boyfriend’s New Girlfriend is Lady Gaga.
It’s hard to ignore the biggest story in the news right now: COVID-19. As mamas and doctors, we are in the thick of it all. Here’s a great, deep dive from earlier this week with what you need to know about the coronavirus. Spoiler: Wash your hands. Don’t hoard masks. Don’t panic.
This & That
I’m not much of a makeup girl but I do love skin care products. I’ve long been a big fan of Beauty Counter’s cleansing balm, but I’ve heard great things about this balm. It’s got clean ingredients and the price can’t be beat. Anyone tried it?
Are you a podcast fan? This episode of the Tim Ferris show featuring legendary card magician Richard Turner is absolutely fascinating. And when you’re done, check out this documentary for more of the magic.
I’m LOVING the return of the midi skirt this spring. They are so fun! Dress them up with a sweater or down with a knotted tee and sneakers. I picked up a cute one at a little shop in Napa that I can’t wait to wear all spring. I’m also eyeing this little number.
Recipes To Try
I’ve got a few days off from work and I’m ready to get into the kitchen and try a few new things. Here’s what I’m hoping to make:
Peanut Noodles with Roasted Broccoli!
Cheddar Scallion English Muffin Bread
Pineapple Upside Down Cornmeal Cake
Well friends, that’s it for this week. I’m off to brave Costco. Here’s hoping you have a wonderful weekend. We will be back on Tuesday with another new recipe. Until then…
