i've been eating, cooking, reading, browsing, & buying...

eating: food has been pretty clean the last few months. i was trying (without a whole lotta luck) to lose the last of the weight i gained while i was pregnant with sailor. finally, i had enough, so i met with a nutritionist who got me back on the straight and narrow. most of my meals consist of one protein, vegetables, one serving of fruit, and one wasa cracker. i've lost 26 lbs, so i think it worked. i'm not even bored. most of the food i eat is really healthy, but once you get used to REALLY healthy- you crave it. so i find myself craving zucchini and artichoke hearts throughout the day!

cooking: one of my favorite dishes (that i created since starting my nutritionist-guided diet) is wild rice, sautéed shitake mushrooms, spiraled zucchini (i use a spiralizer which makes the zucchini look like spaghetti), with herbs and coconut oil. it's really good and really filling. i make it once a week (however the little boys won't go near it…)

reading: i just read Girl On the Train. what an amazing read. i was consumed for three days, and felt immense sadness when i finished it.

browsing: i've been on a hunt for new clothes, shoes, & general fashion accessories. i've been scanning nordstrom/ nordstrom rack, shop bop, and zara (online). it's so hard to pull the trigger when there are so many things to chose from. the standard basics with a few fun pieces to mix in- those are what i'm on the hunt for! i also have my eye on this carpet (once we finally find a house), i would love to own it. until then, i will just look at it :)

buying: since i'm back to a more normal-ish weight for me (i could still stand to lose 5-10 lbs), i am finally feeling ready to make new clothes commitments. last week i went to the mall (all by myself) and bought a camel hair long vest, vintage pleated skirt, skinny jeans, a super lovely green dress (which can be dressed up or down), and a few basic tops in easy to layer colors and textures. my go to place for basics is Zara. great prices and great fit! last but, certainly not least, i bought a clare vivier purse. it's small, and i love it!
