not gonna lie, keeping this post to 5 things is going to be ridiculously tough for me because i have that “omg i love everything” personality…but i’mma try my best and choose 5 things i’m really into lately. (b/c let’s be honest, you don’t need me to sit here and remind you how much i love running & my family & the lake & traveling now, do you?) 🙂
ONE: wearing – my Asics. (i have the Gel-DS Trainer 20 Flash) seriously, these babies have been total run-saviors & game changers for me. i’m so thankful i got fitted into these and can see myself sticking with Asics indefinitely.
TWO: watching – Scandal. soooo, yeah — i’ve officially joined the ranks of the Netflix-obsessed. i’ve never been a TV person (unless you count the shows where people sing and dance — i like a good talent), but Scandal has rendered me a lost cause. i am powerless in the grips of Miss Olivia Pope and that sexy president guy. i’ve lately developed a nightly routine lately of eating dinner on my yoga mat on my bedroom floor and stretching while drinking red wine and watching this show. & that is my new idea of a perfect evening.
THREE: listening to – Borns. i am obsessssed with him/his band. i saw him in concert last week at Williamsburg Music Hall (really hip little intimate venue, totally dug it) and was absolutely blown away by this amazing, quirky weirdo of a super talented human being. not only did he have one of my all-time fave oldies songs playing over the system as he walked on stage (“Flower Girl” by the Cowsills — do yourself a favor and look that up), but his voice is insaaane & his music has such an oldies influence (which i LOVE) and he closed with “Bennie and the Jets” as an encore. like, this guy is unreal. i’m physically incapable of ceasing to listen to his new album Dopamine 24/7. amazing. listen to: Seeing Stars, Holy Ghost, Dug My Heart.
FIVE: excited about — going home this weekend. there’s a boy i’ve been waiting two weeks to see, and my very first trail race (so long as it doesn’t pour), and my lovely family and a beautiful lake and always only wonderful things to be had. i don’t care how magical NYC is — it will never keep me from being the very most thankful for everything i have at home.
