My Everyday Life [Week 11]

The warmer temperatures, sunshine, birds chirping, and melting snow cheered me up so much this week!

Here's what week 11 of 2019 looked like!

Trying to get some exercise in, but I need to be better about it.

 Still loving salad club at work! Check out this week's colorful creation.
 I really enjoyed this read for book club. Can't wait to discuss it this week.
This satisfied my craving for Italian food. I'd definitely repurchase, but I wish there was more saus'age in the dish.
Attended a bridal shower for Craig's cousin's fiance. She was so sweet and we have a lot in common.
After shopping off and on for two years, I finally picked out two new frames from Costco optical and had a really good experience there.

These are my prescription frames.
And my blue light frames, which have no prescription in them so I can wear them at work and home with my contacts.
Started and finished this wonderful book by Sy Montgomery! We definitely have the same, deep love for animals. Reading about how she dealt with grief over losing a pet reminded me of myself. Unfortunately, we got some bad news about our two cats this week and we aren't sure what is causing all of our cats to get sick. It was hard enough to lose Tanzi in January and I can't imagine dealing with two more being sick. 

Anyway, great book and I highly recommend if you're an animal lover like me!
The illustrations in the book were so cute too.
 Pema and I were basking in the sun this morning.
Snuggles with Shiva. He's the sickest of our two cats and my little buddy, so lots of tears were shed on Monday when I got the bad news from our vet. His kidney levels are elevated and his thyroid is in the grey zone.
We tried the burrito special at Urban Beats this week. It was ok. I much prefer other items on their menu.
Accidental phone shot, but it represents that Craig and I got a couple of nice walks in this week. It felt so good to be outside.
 We both really liked this Miyoko's vegan cheddar cheese!
 So did Pema. He's always trying to sneak something, but he's not quite as brazen as Shiva is.
Hope you have a great week!

My Everyday Life [Week 10]

I'm feeling like I need to get back at blogging, so let's jump right into the everyday life series and show you week 10.

Pema, I'm trying to take a picture of my contact lenses for a rebate! Always has to be in on the action.
Checked out a new vegan option in downtown Waukesha called Perennial and met the chef and owner! It's in the Five Joints @ Five Points spot on Broadway.
I brought the Pineapple Curry home with me!
A visit for both boys to the vet. I love the artwork there. 
 We need to say adios to these (too much sugar).
And hola to these as a treat. Plus, we need to feed the boys more calories. I really hope they're not hyperthyroid like Tanzi was as they're way too young.
I was chatting to a coworker and drinking this. She gave me a funny look and said, "are you drinking cough syrup!?" I suppose it does look like it!
Aunt Lisa, I want to touch your hair next. Conner was having fun touching all of the ladies' hair at Craig's cousin's baby shower.
After searching for two years, I finally bought some new eyeglasses. I got two in fact. I ordered these for my prescription lenses and a different pair with the blue light lenses.
A Sunday morning at Mama D's, which has become our favorite coffee shop. I just wish one was closer to our house. Trying my best to reduce waste and I insisted we bring our own cups this time.
Beautiful quilts on display at the New Berlin Public Library which remind me of my lovely mom who is an amazing quilter.
Picked out these three books from the new book shelf. Now I need to stay off my phone and read more. Fun fact: I coordinated a lecture for Sy Montgomery, who wrote the book on the left. She was a sweet lady to work with.
Have a wonderful week! I'm so ready for some warmer temperatures and for the snow to melt.
