My week was, how do I put this? HOT.
Summer has quickly descended upon this city, and now that I'm working at home - I honestly can't stop sweating. Yes, we have an air conditioner that works fairly well. But, it's a window unit in the living room: so, if I'm in the bedroom or the office or the kitchen, it's fairly miserable. And with hot weather, there's only so many clothes you can take off. After a certain point, well...
All that to say, there were a few moments of cool relief this week: Our favorite cupcake shop, Sprinkles (you know the one with the cupcake ATM?) just opened a new ice cream shop! Zach and I were there as soon as we found out it opened. We consider ourselves ice cream connoisseurs - and this was A.MAZ.ING. Even their sugar cones (and red velvet waffle cones) are made from scratch. It was the perfect way to cool down after a grumpy day working in this oven.
Then, there's nothing like starting your day with a huge glass of cool carrot, apple, beet juice (I promise that's not sarcastic.) Zach and I have been trying to eat less processed foods, and replace it with fruits and vegetables. After watching "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead," we decided that juicing our breakfast is an easy way to flush our bodies with tons of antioxidants and nutrients (without having to eat the 12 carrots, 2 apples, and whole beet our recipe requires.) Plus, it's delicious!
Finally, I've had the inspiration to start drawing/painting new cards for Hello Lately. So, be expecting new birthday cards, wedding cards, baby cards, and engagement cards in the store during the next few weeks!
What about you? How was your week? And what are your plans for the weekend?
