Are you superstitious?
I am. It’s probably because I come from a long line of lunatics. My father has never worked on the 13th (I’m sure he won’t step foot out of the house today) and my mom used to tell me all kinds of weird witch stories like, don’t say (or wish someone) happy birthday too early or open an umbrella indoors (that one we all heed though, right?).
Happy Friday the 13th. It’s the cherry on top of a seriously fucked up week, am I right?
I’m trying so hard to not let mass hysteria bring me down, and I’ll be honest–I’m having a really hard time of it. My dad is scheduled for bypass surgery on Monday, making him one of the elderly + immunocompromised population we keep hearing about. I’m 8+ months pregnant and having a hard time getting around. I’m worried about the impact Coronavirus could potentially have on me or Bryan (seems baby will be just fine) and whether we’ll even be allowed visitors in the hospital. Strange times indeed, which is why, now more than ever, I need me some weekly gratitude 🙂 Let’s dive in–don’t forget to link up with my girls Lindsay and Beth below! XOXO
The bachelor finale 🙌 holy train wreck, you guys. And I have to say—I have a newfound appreciation for my MIL. Yikes, Barb–that is NOT one woman you want to cross (hit me up if you know what I’m talking about and want to dish)
Phone calls and text messages from concerned girlfriends. I literally DO NOT KNOW what I would do without you <3
Along that same vein, having to cancel on two sets of friends who were so understanding and sweet, it made me question why on earth I was so afraid to do so in the first place
Time spent with old friends last weekend… we hung out with the kiddos in the sun and blew bubbles and caught up on life. It was a perfect day and just what I needed
Putting in requests for all the books from the library and refreshing my inbox every hour to see if they’re in (not feeling the book I’m reading and want some mysteries in my life again)
Getting to see my bestie and her wife briefly and talking all things vegan food
Iced green tea matcha from Dunkin’
Going out for groceries this week and realizing I have no idea how to stock up on essentials. I came home with 4 packages of potato pancakes, dill pickle chips, and clementines (our quarantine is going to be LIT tho!)
