Perfectly timed people

Happy Friday!  Can you believe it's November?

Oh, time, you are so funny.  (I know I've said that before.  And I will probably say it many more times.)  I've been thinking about time a lot lately.

So, how was your week?

I was swamped this week, both professionally and personally, probably more swamped professionally though.  Crazy, crazy week.

I took several yoga classes this week and needed every single one.  (I literally took 5 classes since Sunday.)  Each one brought a different goal or perspective and I needed all of it!  Today for some reason, I was completely tuned in and it was awesome!  I wish my body could be that tuned in all the time, but it can't & that's all part of yoga.  Go with the flow.  (Get it... the flow.  You know how in yoga instructors often say, "alright, let's flow" when we're doing vinyasas?)

Friday morning I took some time to write out my to do list and knew I needed a coffee date with myself in the afternoon in order to stay on track.  I packed up my work computer and treated myself to Intelligentsia.  The cashier had the exact vibe I needed at that moment and totally calmed me down.  Thank you, sir, who's sister is Lisa.

Other highlights:
-One of my lady friends got engaged on Sunday!  Yay!  So excited!
-I'm officially friends with my neighbor and his dog, Toby, who I've been saying hello to since I moved in.  He's an elderly man, who I randomly see out walking his dog.  This week as I walked towards them, Toby started running towards me and my friend said, "Look it's your friend."  He's the perfect little dog and I love my little conversations with that man.
-I had a random conversation with a lady this week who said, "You must be one of those people who people feel they can confess everything to because I just can't stop right now."  That was nice, but I can't say I've ever noticed before.
-The best word I can think of to describe dating is uncertain.  Amiright?
-As I trudged through the rain walking home from yoga Thursday evening I saw the adorable trick-or-treaters.  In the rain.  Seriously adorable.  My favorite group was the 2 dads with their 2 sons.  All dressed up.  (No, they're costumes were not matching.  I do not quite understand the current trend to have everyone in the same theme.)

This week I feel like I kept running into people who I needed to see exactly at that moment (besides the red sox fan I was with when the Cardinals lost...minus her).  I think this happens all the time, but it takes extra thought to recognize it and be thankful for it.  Sometimes people are in your life when you need them.

This weekend:
-I'm excited to reconnect with my friend who I haven't seen in a couple weeks tonight.  I know that's not all that long, but for me and her it is.
-Saturday my friend is running her first 5K ever, in memory of her mom and I'm super excited to be in her cheering squad!  I'm making a sign.

What are you up to this weekend?
Hope you have a great one!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…


I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
