I'm in the mood for a list, a food post, a personal post (I'm dropping a bomb...), a goals post and a things-i'm-thankful-for post. All in one. Let's see how this goes.
feeling// Wide awake, at 7am. I realize that's not very early for most, but I am not a morning person, and this is odd.
eating// Tsunami Taqueria, which is a mix of Latin and Asian cuisine, this past Mother's Day. I had it in my head (and heart) to take lots of photos with Moms on Sunday, but both of us dropped the ball and forgot to get someone to take our picture. Lack of photoshoot aside, it was a dope Mother's Day. We went to church together, made our way downtown to the Sweet Auburn Festival, visited and supported my cousin's bakery booth, did a little window shopping, went to a secluded art gallery and ended the day with some good food (pictured above). I'll make sure to get some pictures of us together next time we hang out. Love my mama!
drinking// Eco Drink for the past few months, instead of buying juice. I get it from Costco, but I've linked the Amazon option as well. It's like drinking your multivitamin, and it actually tastes good. The Pomegranite-Berry is my favorite flavor, and I sweeten it with a little stevia.
practicing// Hot Pilates & Yoga again. The studio I used to frequent in Vinings closed in January, so I hadn't been to a class all year... until I found Be Yoga a last week. I've only been a few times, but it already feels like I'm a card-carrying yogi again. Time to get my groove back!
mastering// The art of raising a puppy. It takes a boatload of patience and even more consistency, and Raven has her good days and bad days. I'm very much looking forward to day when she's outgrown her restless puppy stage and is finally a chill, adult dog.

This past weekend was a busy one, but it was good. Between training classes with the pup, a book club meeting, a wedding, the usual Sunday gathering at Passion and the Taste of Marietta and cleaning my place, I was on the go all day Saturday & Sunday. Howwwwever... I have very little photographic proof. I can hardly believe I went to a foodie event and didn't take any pictures, but I was too busy trying to meet up with all my friends, who were all coming from different parts of town (with their own set of friends and family), and trying to find the best foods to try, and then trying to maneuver through the crowds to find somewhere for all of us to sit. It was chaotic, but it was worth it. The taste of Smyrna is coming later this year, so I'll definitely get some post-worthy photos then.

This morning, while out killing some time with Raven, I saw a sign for office space. 4,000+ square feet is available for lease in Buckhead, behind Trader Joe's, in case anyone's interested. I thought... I should definitely do that. I should rent out some space, buckle down and get to working on all these creative projects spinning around in my head, that I haven't been able to get done in the comfort of my own home. It was a nice thought, but it's not in my realm of possibility right now, and I don't have some profound revelation to share about this, so I guess I'll leave that there.

This is Raven. She was a stray, and the second I saw her eyes (one blue, one brown) I had to meet her. She's a Pit Lab Mix, she's got lots of energy (as to be expected), she loves to play tug-of-war, she'll go wild for any toy that squeaks and if you kiss her on the face, she kisses you right back. I don't understand how anyone could've let her out of their sight, and I definitely can't comprehend how anyone would let her stray. When she's acting up and I scold her, she just sits down and looks up at me with those eyes... ugh. I melt!
There are things I never knew about puppies:
- They require a hefty amount of sleep. One minute she's aggressively chewing on a toy, the next she's snoring.
- Speaking of snoring, they do that. It's cute and annoying at the same time.
- They really do chase their tail (if the tail is long enough). One time she actually caught it, and she squealed at the pain from biting herself. She has since pulled the same stunt with her foot. HER FOOT. The "Dumb Dog" lyrics from Annie now make much more sense.
- They sometimes break free from their crate. Always make sure it's tightly secured.
- Trying to raise one without help will make you consider dropping him/her off at the pound.
- When they pass gas, it's silent - but DEADLY.
- They like to like to lick you, everywhere.
