Baking: Pear and Chai Breakfast Cake. It’s so yummy, and the fact that it’s baked in a slow cooker blew my mind. Eat it warm and marvel at the goodness.
Reading: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. I’m about 100 pages into the book and am fighting the struggle bus. Glass Sword was a disappointing second book, and I keep waiting for this third book to go south. So far it hasn’t, but I don’t want to get my hopes up.
Watching: Mr. Selfridge on Amazon Prime. I’m still looking for a Downton Abbey replacement, and while this show wasn’t it, I still watched all four seasons. The show took major liberties with the life of Mr. Selfridge, but it was an easy series to watch.
Listening to: Hope in Uncertain Times, a 21-day meditation series with Oprah and Deepak. Free meditation experiences are offered a few times a year, and I find them very soothing.
Celebrating: Record Store Day. It’s become an annual tradition for me and my mom to visit her old college town’s record store on this day. For the first time ever, we had to wait 45 minutes just to get into the store. Even with the long, chilly wait, I still managed to score a couple of awesome records.
Volunteering: At A Day of Miracles telethon in support of the Children’s Miracle Network. It was definitely one of the highlights from last month.
Blogging about: The one part of your body you’re neglecting in your skincare routine (don’t miss the giveaway at the end of the post!), How to survive the Vera Bradley Annual Outlet Sale (so many people, so many deals!), the Victoria Beckham for Target floral dress I’m obsessed with (see pageant pic above), and the easiest DIY cocoon cardigan to sew (it only requires two seams!).
