Hello all! It was a whirlwind of a week & I'm grateful for the weekend. If you didn't read it, browse my post on What a Social Media Manager Does in a Day. Fred & I plan on heading to Balboa Park tomorrow to explore some museums. It should be fun & if anything, educational. Now let's get right to it, here's what I'm loving it right now!

Life's Little Details

We live in a massive world with so much going on, so I love to find the joy in the little things. I couldn't help but notice the way the fence created this patterned shadow. Of course, I had to capture to the moment with a photo.

Afternoon Delight

Okay, I know that beer & salad doesn't necessarily even out, but it could be worse! I could've had beer & pizza. Or beer, pizza, & chips. Or beer, pizza, chips, & ice cream! But I didn't! I'm just going to go ahead & give myself a pat on the back for that.



Fred's mum made this Mexican delicacy recently. If you Google it, tons of weird stuff comes up. Essentially it's diseased corn. Sounds lovely right? It just tasted like corn but with a slightly mushy texture. Very good! It's definitely worth trying!

Movie Nights

Aside from our usual Netflix binges, Fred & I have been watching more movies lately. We're pretty excited about catching up on newer films as well as the classics. Our latest watches include Interstellar & Lethal Weapon.


Celery Progress 

I posted a picture almost two months ago about my little celery buddy & I'm proud to show him off once more. He's slowly growing but I haven't been able to eat any celery from him yet. Patience is a virtue.

Let me know in the comments:
