This past week, I returned to work and tried to figure out the keys to being productive with a puppy in the house. The hardest part is definitely the guilt. I feel so guilty when I have to split my attention between work and puppy care, and Sabine does her best to intensify my pain with the sweetest, most pitiful cries. All in all though, I would say that we are finding rhythm and routine far faster than I had expected, and I love having my little shadow around.
I am so in love with this print right now.
How was your Valentine's Day? I was thoroughly spoiled by my Valentine. Mr. Pedantic was very much under the weather on Wednesday evening, so we had to forego my heart-shaped pizza plans and save all of our celebrations for tonight. He's got a new suit and I made dinner reservations at our favorite restaurant here in town. I cannot wait.
I NEED this pudding in my life. I love making pudding as a weeknight dessert. It is so quick and easy, but so indulgent.
I was really determined to read more books this year. In my teens, I went through books like water, but my reading repertoire has slowly dwindled since college and I rarely get the opportunity to pick up a book for pleasure reading these days. And, even if I do, when I finally get that block of time to just...sit, I always fall asleep. Womp. Womp. Welcome to adulthood, I suppose. So, rather than giving up on my mission, I am employing audio books. Sure, they are not quite the same, but they are far better than nothing at all. I love listening to them in the car, while I edit pictures, and when I clean the house. Our library even has an app with hundreds of free audio books that you can rent. I have heard that a lot of libraries are using this now so you should definitely see if it is available in your area!
How is your weekend shaping up? I really hope that it includes more chocolate than laundry.
