Currently Vol. 11

Chrystina Noel Currently Vol 11

Actually doing a Currently post on a Sunday night over here. Almost feeling like I’m on top of my game for the week. We’ll see how long this lasts. It’s been another fast-paced week. (What else is new?) I have a feeling everything’s going to be complete chaos until April 24. Good chaos. (Is that any better than saying busy. Good busy? Unclear.) Anyway, here’s what I’m currently up to these days:

Enjoying some days off. Last week I had Monday off as the end of my Lady Summit Project trip and Friday off as the beginning of Burlington trip. Not a bad way to do a week. (That said, Ben and I both definitely worked for 5+ hours on Friday from a hotel room. #lifeofaconsultant)

Drinking all the tea and all the beer in Vermont. In terms of tea, I tried lots of chai, I had a delicious rooibos matcha tea (pictured above) and sat in a tea ceremony area, and had lots of cups of regular tea. We also drove up to The Alchemist to try some Heady Topper (spoiler alert: if you don’t like IPAs, you won’t like this), spent some time at Zero Gravity (their branding is on point) and Queen City (HIGHLY recommend, these guys were my favorite).

Treating myself to real maple syrup, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream straight from the factory, and a kahlua- and frangelico-spiked hot chocolate.

Inspired by all the great food I’ve been trying. I know want to try to make a cherry and scallions reduction compote to put on cheese and homemade crackers (also to have with cheese).

Anxiously awaiting our podcast coming out. Technically, it was uploaded to iTunes on April 1, but they apparently have to review and approve it? I’ll keep you all posted. We’re interviewing our first guest tomorrow and I can’t wait to share it with y’all.

Catching up with lots of friends this week. I finally caught up on birthday cards and snail mail on Monday. I had a phone call with Taylor Wednesday, stayed at Jess’ house on Thursday night, and a coffee date in Burlington with a friend from 6th grade. So good to talk to people who you share part of your soul with.

Overwhelmed by my schedule this week already. It’s one of those weeks where you have something really fun and cool planned for everyday. It’ll be great, I promise.

Trying to remember to take photos of me and Ben. I don’t actually have that many, and we usually look like weirdo-faces in the photos.

How was your week? How was your weekend? I hope you did something wonderful.

    I had a great weekend catching up with friends too and I did a big spring cleaning of my closet. I love this time of year!

    • Yay, good! I’m glad your Vermont weekend went well too. Getting snowed in somewhere is definitely one of the best ways to catch up with people. Also super excited about your spring cleaning. So therapeutic.

  • It was great having you! You will have to bring Ben back so we can actually show you Saratoga next time!

    • Yes! Totally on the to-do list. Just need to find some free time. That doesn’t conflict with baby things. And we’ll make it happen 🙂

  • Ummm B&J’s straight from the factory sounds like dreamland. 🙂
