Week in Review: The Random One

November 13, 2017

Getting straight to the point--Joining Meg this Monday for relishing in our accomplishments. With classes this week, another out-of-town trip next weekend, then family in town for the holiday, I might not get around to updating ze blog until after Thanksgiving. So just in case I don't get to say it enjoy your pie, Macy's parade watching (or in my case the Westminster Kennel Club dog show) and time with loved ones! 

Got my teeth cleaned at the dentist. That's one thing I hate more than doctor's visits.

Attended Smitten Kitchen's Dallas book tour stop. Deb Perelman is just as charming and funny and clever and witty in person as she is online. Making me want to consider becoming a full-time blogger of sorts..

Posted another round of must-reads.

Made & ate these tempeh breakfast sausages from Oh Ladycakes.

Survived the first actually chilly week of fall/winter season.

The usual chores: did, folded and put away my laundry (not all in the same sitting but all done nonetheless), ran and emptied the dishwasher, took the trash out.

Finally caught up on my book goals for the year, which serves as just another reminder that there are only 7 weeks left til 2018. Semi-side note: Follow me on Goodreads where I update more than on any other social media platform.

Squeezed in a quick visit to art gallery on campus before this exhibition ended. My school's art barn was demolished recently, which caused quite the controversy and uproar amongst students. Luckily, a new space to replace it recently opened a brief walk away from my apartment complex. Definitely gonna be keeping an eye out for the next exhibits.

Enjoyed a lovely road trip with my sister to Austin to visit family. Sang along to old pop punk music in between some deep, real talk. Seriously, the best conversations are the ones that go from topic to topic without any hesitation.

And lastly, an accomplishment that isn't really an accomplishment for most people, but leaving some things on my to-do unchecked. Got much less done than I had planned, which means the next few days will be crazy stressful. As a minor freak out last night depicted, I am still learning to be okay with this, to not take it against myself.

How do you feel about the dentist? Does anybody actually like visiting the dentist? 
One accomplishment from your week!

  1. I used to hate the dentist because of both the pain and constant reminder that I wasn't flossing daily... I do, but my gums are genetically bad. It would hurt my self-esteem, as silly as that sounds. Love car ride conversations!!

    1. Same to those guilt-ridden feelings of not flossing regularly :(

  2. One of my favorite things about road trips is getting to bond with the person in the other seat. I'm glad you had such a great week and finished it with some things undone. Sometimes we need to do that.

    Happy Early Turkey Day. Safe travels.
