Dark Things I Like, Reader’s Requests

Hi Friends!  How has your weekend been?  I feel like mine has flown by.  Even though I’m working, something about the time I do have with Scott and Skylar just flies by.  We went on a some walks, we took Skylar to the park, I got some housework, cooking prep and chop work done, went to the grocery store, nothing glamorous but productive nonetheless.  It’s been dreary, chilly, rainy, and gross out here though.  I miss the sunshine!

Do you like Dark Things?  I thought I’d mention of a few Dark Things I Like:

1. Dark coffee or espresso in a Vegan Caramel Macchiato

And also thanks for chiming in about my new laptop ” book” case, and also your luggage recommendations, because yes, luggage can be so pricey!

Questions
1. Best Thing You Ate or Did over the weekend? 
Best thing I did was take a few walks with the family and drink some really hot coffee.  Nothing better than zoning out with my Google Reader and a cup of hot coffee on a dreary day, after a nice workout and time with my family.

2. Do you have a busy week coming up?
I think we all are always busy, so that’s probably a silly question, but yes, I have a busy week.  I am working 5 days a week now, parenting full time as we don’t use outside child care (Scott and I trade and do the hand off.  He comes home and I leave for work, and vice versa.)

I have a few appointments this week, the usual errands, my “hobby” called blogging, yeah, I’m slightly busy.

3. What Dark Things Do You Like?
Other than what I mentioned in the post, dark jeans, dark furniture, and dark mascara are all hits for me.

4. Reader’s Request Posts.  I can’t promise if I can do a post on it, but I am open for suggestions. 

I should mention for newer readers that my blog is not a food journal so I don’t do daily eats posts.  I don’t ever plan to take a picture of everything I eat in a day, upload it, and post it.  I don’t have time or desire for that!   See my #2. above for what my life looks like these days!

But other than that, any requests?  From food to fashion to parenting to tattoos to travel to yoga to whatever…anything you want to hear about?

P.S. I also have an entire Chocolate Recipes Post with Pictures if you haven’t seen it and would like to drool to check that out, Click Here.  Figure for all you dark chocolate lovers, or chocolate lovers, you may want to peruse that one.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and weekend!
