What about you? 

What’s on your list this week?

Leave them in the comments!

    I am loving the mantra for this week! Definitely wise words.

    After our second bed bug fumigation over the weekend (did you know it takes six weeks to kill them all?!), I’m only setting one intention for this week: be brave and sleep in my bed. You need to use yourself as bait for the traps to monitor the population, and also if I don’t get back in there soon I may just sleep on the couch for the rest of my life.

    Every cheese board you make is epic.

    Oh, I miss Lake Tahoe! It is a magical lake.
    If you’re on the north shore, check out yoga studio Tahoe in Truckee. Shaelah is a really amazing teacher.
    Enjoy your vacation!

    Tracy, I just want to say thank you. I’ve been wondering if Thistle was any good and after you mentioned it on the blog I tried it (with your code) and love it. Just rounding out my first week and I’m definitely going to keep getting it. So good!

    I just ordered Rummikub from Amazon. I have a 9 year old boy home in a leg cast and he’s going stir crazy! We’ve gone through all of our board games and school doesn’t start until August 29. I wish he was less active and more into drawing or painting so he wouldn’t be so bored. Have fun in Tahoe! Happy birthday!!!
