Hello friends! Gosh, it’s been a while. You might be wondering where I have been (or maybe you haven’t noticed- in which case carry on).
Well, I’ve been busy with a visit from Daniel, lots of workout classes, work and some projects I’ve been working on. I’ve been cooking a lot, but just haven’t had time to test out new recipes and take pictures. Have no fear- I’ve still been sharing some of my food and cooking adventures on my Instagram so make sure you’re following along!
Photo Above: I’ve been going to coffee shops on the weekends to get work done on my computer, and my new favorite drink of choice is a dirty chai (chai latte with a shot of espresso). The best!
I gave Blue Apron a shot and I was surprised at how much I liked it. Have you tried any of the meal kit companies out there? Of the three recipes I tried for BA, two were great and the above Pozole Soup was not my favorite. That’s probably because I’m comparing it to some pretty delicious pozole I’ve had in Mexico. Ultimately, I decided to cancel Blue Apron since I grocery shop and cook plenty for the blog and don’t need to spend the extra money for this luxury.
I was in Miami in February for a work trip and I extended it into the weekend to be with my family and explore with my friend Brittany. I finally visited Wynwood, the neighborhood that has a million cool murals. It was photo backdrop heaven!
I took this awesome picture of Philadelphia from the plane. I love my city!
I’m hoping to share my go-to microwave mug cake with you all soon but I’m still perfecting it. Spoiler alert: it’s pumpkin flavored! I saved a few pumpkin cans from the fall so I could have pumpkin bread whenever I want!
We “Pinterested” it up real hard at the office for a bridal shower for my friend Sydney. I was pretty proud of our little set up and Sydney loved it! She’s coming back to the office today after two weeks away and I missed her so much.
My Patagonia vest has been a staple since the weather has been so wacky lately. It goes from 80s one day to 40 degrees the next. I can’t keep up with it! I still haven’t switched my winter wardrobe out because I’m not sure when this craziness is ending. Oh, and those glasses are new! Have you heard of Firmoo? It’s a super affordable site for prescription glasses and sunglasses. My only wish is that there was a way to try them on before you order. These turned out well but not the perfect pair. I use them as a backup pair and I keep them on my coffee table for when I watch tv.
I’m excited that Firmoo has shared a special code for you to get a free pair of prescription glasses! Crazy, right? The first ten people to use the code 24carrotlife2 here before April 18th will get this offer (shipping and handling fees are extra). Enjoy!
I’ve had a chance to try out new recipes from some of my favorite bloggers lately, like this Oatmeal Latte by How Sweet Eats. Such a creative recipe! I also made these Spring Roll Bowls from Pinch of Yum and they were soo good! This Roasted Sweet Potato Farro Salad from Cookie + Kate was another recent find and it is a favorite now too!
And last but not least, Daniel came to visit for a week! It was sort of last minute and normally he comes for two weeks around this time but I’m so glad he was here even if just for a short while. Until next time!
Do you like these little life updates? I’d love to hear your thoughts and let me know what you’ve been up to lately!
I was given a free pair of glasses from Firmoo to try and was not compensated. As always, all opinions are my own.
