In a few hours, I'm flying to Guayaquil, Ecuador, where I'll be spending roughly 24 hours before heading to the Galapagos. Once I've reached the Galapagos, I'll have no cell or internet for about 8 days until I'm back in Guayaquil on the 2nd. Merry Xmas and happy early New Year, everyone -- see you in 2016!

I've gotten into a habit of using a portion of my weekends to cook and prep meals for the week. This may mean cooking something like beef stew in large quantities and then portioning into smaller containers for the freezer and/or lunch during the week, roasting veggies to eat as a side or toss in a salad, hard-boiling eggs, washing greens, cutting up veggies, grinding coffee, or making a fritatta -- anything that makes taking a healthy lunch or grab-and-go breakfast easier. I also find it a fairly relaxing way to spend time and I can catch up on my podcasts at the same time. The only thing that might make it better would be a dishwasher, but the good thing is that I'll have one soon enough . . .
I re-discovered this song a few weeks ago and it's been stuck in my head ever since . . .
With the new year approaching, I thought it was time for a (mobile-friendly) makeover. I'm not 100% done tweaking it yet, but let me know if you have any feedback. I'm also thinking I might focus more on posting about cooking, eating, drinking, and exercise (yes, even more than I already do) . . . stay tuned!!
Study Proves Only Jerks End Their Texts With a Period (I guess I'm a jerk.)
Small Kitchens, By Choice (I would be thrilled if I could afford a renovation that allowed me to get a 24" stove rather than the 20" toy stove that fits!)
Things that are making me smile these days:
New bike shoes on sale (for spin class and bike tour trips; keeping my racing shoes for the tri)
Getting a mix tape that I can actually play
