Excited About: Our reservation in March at the Inn at Woodhaven in Louisville, Kentucky. The B&B looks beautiful and the breakfast is seriously calling my name. We are staying in the Derby Room in the Carriage house.  It was supposed to be a 4th Anniversary trip, but because I got the room through living social, I couldn't get the exact dates we wanted. But March is good enough! And we are seriously excited about exploring this charming city.

Listening To: The Les Miserables Soundtrack (The Complete Symphonic Recording Version). I was so excited last year when I found out they were making a new Les Miserable movie. I saw the play Les Miserables in 2004 on New Year's Eve in London, so it holds a special place in my heart. I have already seen the new movie twice, and the soundtrack has been on repeat in my car and on my walks.

Reading: The Pact by Jodi Picoult. It is sad, but an interesting read about a a teenage couple who seemingly enter into a suicide pact, that goes wrong, and only one person ends up dead, and the other ends up on trial for murder.

Eating: I am obsessed with homewrecker burritos from Moe's Southwestern grill. I love to go there during my lunch break, And unfortunately I think the staff is starting to recognize me. Which for some reason really makes me anxious. I hate when restaurants start recognizing me.

Working On: Restarting my 5k training. I'm doing the Color Run 5k in March in Jackson, Mississippi. I'm really hoping this will be the race I can run the entire thing. The cool thing about this race is we are all going to get color bombed every few miles.  SO excited, SO nervous.

Loving:  These prints from Exploding Dog, there is something about the simplicity of them that I really appreciate.

Researching (for fun):  I've fallen in love with Hadley Hemmingway (Ernest Hemmingway's first wife) after reading The Paris Wife & Paris Without End. I've been scouring the net for anything on her and have been gawking at the vintage black and whites images of her. She intrigues me.

Thankful For: The fact that the holidays are over. I love them, I really do. But there is something about getting back into a routine that is pretty comforting and welcome after all the chaos and heticness of the holidays.


  1. Love it all! Excited for your stay in Louisville, KY. Looks beautiful! That is awesome that you are running a 5K. I can't even run a half of a mile. Haha. So uhh, yah, that won't be happening anytime soon in my future. LOL. I love that you get "colored bombed" every few miles. That sounds like SOOO much fun! You can do it! Can't wait to see pictures!

  2. I've always wanted to go to a B&B. That looks amazing! Good for you for restarting your training! I miss running SOOOO much. I've been walking, and I'm grateful for that, but I am looking forward to the day my feet get to leave the ground just a little more. :-)

  3. Hey I just awarded you the Liebster award! Read about it here:
