this week

temps were as low as -38 on monday. poor buddy is o-v-e-r the cold.

the everygirl is hiring part time editors! we have had a few big strategy meetings and i’m really excited to see where we take TEG in 2014.

my favorite boots are 40% off. these suede loafers are 40% off, too.

i am finally offering pre-made templates for blogger again. took forever. also redid my site. again.

started scandal on jan 1 and i’m halfway through season two and shameless returns this sunday.

listening to this song on repeat.

made this chili (added 2 sweet potatoes–thanks for the recipe, max!)

whipped up a modified version of this grain free (paleo) granola, too. i added a little extra honey and baked it at 300 for 20 minutes. so good on its own or with almond milk.

i also picked up some of CJK’s paleo granola at mariano’s. if you’re in chicago, you have to try this stuff. it’s heaven.

started physical therapy this week and it went very well! was told i would only need go to 2x a week for ~ 3-4 weeks. i’ve been doing pull-ups since 1 day post-op (installed a bar in my bedroom doorway) but was cleared to add a few more things into the mix. can’t wait to work out again!

the pup needs this collar and i need this bracelet

teamed up with williams-sonoma to give away a slow cooker. don’t forget to enter to win!

this look at my city is quite the reality check. missing CA.

really excited for the weekend! dinner plans tonight, brunch with shari and gina, lady date at the movies with g – we’re seeing august: osage county, and a game night with friends.

have a great weekend!
