Today I’m driving to see my dad for an early Father’s Day breakfast and then visiting with some of my favorite family members. Yes, I’ll openly admit that I play favorites. BUT can I back that up with saying that I have known different family members as a child vs. adult. There are some who have communicated more with me as an adult and social media has played a huge role in this area. However, these peeps I’m seeing tomorrow I grew up with and aren’t on social media, so they talk to me because they haven’t been exposed to my Mad Men, Taylor Swift, random music video, God, and vegetarian posts on Facebook 🙂
Reads: I’ve been reading Carlos Whittaker’s Moment Maker and I love it. It’s very timely, as I’m learning to relax and enjoy certain moments in life more.. I built up moments before and just thrived off of them and now I can read about truly allowing them to happen and not going over board. It’s a really great read and I’d recommend it to anyone. What’s even better is that Whittaker doesn’t get technical with his Bible references, it’s straight to the point. That’s something that we need more of, straight to the point Bible teachin’.
My next read is going to be Nicole Eunice’s She’s Got Issues. This will be a re-read for me, but with a lot of journaling. I really think rereading this book is a need for the new place I’m at in life.
Listens: I’m still enjoying Empires and my Taylor Swift binge ended since the concert happened. I’m really pumped about the new Frank Turner song and excited about the new album. I also can’t help but turn the volume up a little more every time Saint Motel’s Just My Type is on AltNation or XMU.
Eats: Today I plan on having brunch with my dad at Mitzi’s Table. I’ve never been and I know he hasn’t. I’m really looking forward to going there and checking it out. I know that I said I’m on a 30 no meals out challenge, but I’m pretty sure Father’s Day weekend can be an exception?!
I plan on making this tomorrow: http://www.howsweeteats.com/2015/06/summer-garden-white-bean-dip/. C’mon, doesn’t that look AMAZING?! I had a lemon sweet tooth goin’ on and baked these: http://cookiesandcups.com/white-chocolate-lemon-blondies/. Mine are bigger and gooey-er looking, but oh so delicious. I also added a cup of unsweetened coconut to the mix for some added texture/flavor. It was a great idea!
So, any reading/listening suggestions? Eat anything amazing?
