Happy Monday everyone. I hope you had a wonderful week last week, weren’t too bothered by the clocks switching back, didn’t get too cold in the northeast snow, had a lovely St. Patrick’s day, and got a chance to enjoy the weekend. Here’s a little bit of what went on in my world last week –

Glad the heat started working during the snowstorm. No idea why it started working. I’m not going to ask questions right now.

Lucky to have really awesome friends who offer to cook me dinner when I tell them I’m doing the Whole30. That meal in the upper left was cooked for me by my friend Ryan and was definitely one of my favorite meals I had while doing the Whole 30.

Dancing at Philly Dance Fitness’ Cardio Pop class. This week I brought my friend Marie, and she had fun too! As an extrovert it was great to have a friend there because I feel like I process everything externally and haven’t had somebody to really talk about the class with in a long time. So that was cool.

Quitting the Whole30. Once I started to feel faint after dance class I realized this diet just wasn’t going to do it for me. I needed some kind of grain or starch to feel full, so I decided that the Whole30 was going to have to go. There’s a blog post to come later this week on my thoughts.

Played tourist in my own city. My cousin and his fiancée came to visit and we walked over 15 miles on Saturday. A lot of what we did came from my post about Planning Your Trip to Philadelphia, but they also suggested that we do the Urban Adventure Quest game for Philadelphia. It a scavenger hunt game you play through your phone – and gave me a way to see a bunch of places in the city I’ve never seen before and focus on a lot of details I’ve walked by a million times. This is definitely something I’m going to be considering doing in more cities I visit.

Working on an episode of The Gatherings Podcast. Stay tuned for the launch on April 1. Jessica and I are super excited about it. If anybody knows how to make people sound like two people are in the same room when recording over Skype, that’d be great if you can tell us.

Behind on birthday cards again. Hoping to get another round of cards out this week. March is a huge birthday month, it’s ridiculous.

Collaborating with the best group of ladies for The Blog Connect. If you’re a blogger in the Philadelphia area (or even not in the Philadelphia area) we would love to see you there.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. We’re just a few days away from spring. (or fall!) Here’s to new beginnings and constant changes. They always make things a little more interesting.
