And just like that, it's Friday. Here's a few things that are going on in our world this week.
1. easiest, best, pasta salad
Today Will was responsible for bringing a side dish to work for a bbq themed lunch they're having. I decided to make Caprese Pasta Salad. His mom cooked it a while back for us and we've been obsessed ever since. This is definitely one of those recipes you can throw together depending on taste. All you need is:
Bow Tie Pasta, cooked
Fresh Mozzarella, cubed
Grape Tomatoes, cubed
Fresh Basil, cut into ribbons
Salt and Pepper
Combine, chill, and serve. It's amazing.
2. hot yoga
I haven't so much as thought of a workout in about a year. After moving away from my old yoga studio last summer, I pretty much gave up on any type of organized workout. But I'm ready to get back in the game. I've been researching places that offer hot yoga a little closer to my house, and there are a surprising amount of options. If anyone knows a good place in the east/north areas of Cincinnati, I'd love a recommendation.
3. baby sleep
What a mess. Or less a mess and more an adventure I guess. I've read all the books. Heard all the tricks. Gone from being dead set on getting on a schedule by 3 months, to not caring at all when she does what, and everywhere in between. Still not sure exactly where my parenting philosophy will end up lying, but I know one thing- it's hard to figure out. I still can't believe I'm responsible for making 100% of the decisions for this little person and what is best for her. Who gave me a baby?!
4. quote of the week
I saw this online and could not agree more. I really believe there are very few "bad" things in life, just tough things we need to teach us what we need to learn.
5. rodan + fields
I need the scoop. Does anyone have experience using or selling this product? I am considering doing both. I have a friend that swears by it, but I definitely need to do my research.
And that's my five! Linking up with the ladies below. Happy Weekend!
