Oh Friday, I'm so happy to see you! Here's a little TGIF recap of my week.
The high of my week was lots of things, such as getting to know/playing with Phil's cat, going to an Ingrid Michaelson concert with Amber and a friend from work, and seeing a bunch of former coworkers, including my former boss, at an event hosted by my previous employer (I left on good terms so it was great to see everyone).
The low of my week was feeling extremely frustrated and impatient about something related to work.
A book I am reading is In the Shadow of the Banyan. It's a book my mom recommended to me that is set in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime. I'm counting it toward the "books set in Asia" category of the Read Harder Challenge.
A recipe I made was One-Pan Italian Sausage and Peppers Pasta. It called for marinara so I used this easy recipe to make the marinara using basil and oregano from my herb garden! I know it looks like it has a lot of cheese but that's actually just four thin slices of provolone. It was delicious and so easy to make! Phil does the dishes when I cook so he was very happy that there was only one pan to wash. :)
For my workouts, I completed fewer workouts than I'd like due to lots of evening commitments that kept me up too late to get up before work to workout... I ran on Monday and Thursday, and also went to a swim class on Thursday. Today will be a rest day, tomorrow I will do my long run with my club, and on Sunday I'm planning to bike to a local lake to do my first open water swim!
The best money I spent was on dinner at a Greek place that we went to before the concert. The food was so good and inexpensive!
My plans this weekend include going to a happy hour tonight and going to Once the musical tomorrow night (which I'm so excited about!!!). Phil has a guy's golf weekend so I'll also be cat sitting! The past week has been a busy one so I am really glad that I don't have much planned for the weekend!
the high of your week? What was the best money you spent?
