Happy Friday, everyone! We made it!
Here are some of my favorite things from the past week!
1. Snow day on Monday
I was thinking we were only going to have a two hour delay, at best, on Monday morning, but we actually had the whole day off! It was glorious. I had time to be crafty, read, and relax, which I didn’t do at all last weekend.
2. Moroccan Lentil Soup from Pret a Manger
On Wednesday, I went out to lunch with a new friend at Pret a Manger, one of my absolute favorite soup and sandwich places. They originated in the UK and are all over London, and I went there many times when I studied abroad in college. Pret has journeyed across the pond and is now in New York, D.C., Boston, and Chicago, too! It was a crazy exciting day about a year after I moved here when I learned that they were coming to D.C.
Anyway, this week I tried their Moroccan Lentil Soup for the first time, and it is absolutely delicious. It is vegetarian and full of fiber and protein, and the flavor is fantastic. I can’t wait to go back and get it again!
3. Working out in the morning
I never, ever in my life thought that I would become a morning exerciser, but I am loving the energy and sense of accomplishment that it gives me first thing in the morning.
4. Scentsy’s Yuzu Dragon fragrance
I keep a Scentsy warmer in my office at work, and to celebrate the first day of spring, I started warming Yuzu Dragon yesterday. The guava and dragonfruit notes are perfect for thinking warm, springy thoughts.
5. Relevant magazine’s articles
I discovered Relevant magazine some time ago, and I am a huge fan. They publish thought-provoking articles on timely topics related to faith, culture, calling, and social justice. I’m not a subscriber to the print piece, but much of their content is available for free online. Yesterday, I read excellent articles on “Why Fred Phelps’ Death Isn’t a Cause for Celebration,” “Your Purpose is Not Your Job,” and “A Pope for Protestants?“. (The article on Pope Francis is premium content but can be accessed by creating an account.)
Thanks again to Heather at Housewife Glamour for hosting the link-up! I look forward to participating each week! I will be sure to start taking more photos to add them here.
