Quick Takes... when did I do these last?!

I've decided to try the individual link format thing again.
We shall see if it works. :)
I am tired.  Wow... the whole getting-up-at-5:30am, constantly learning new things, not knowing what I am doing at my new job and still trying to help the childrens is exhausting me. 
By the time Friday night comes... I am beat.
How do you people that work every day STILL have energy to go out on Fridays and such?
How?  This way of life is still very new to me... so, any tips would be great.
Is it because I am older that I am feeling the 5:30 wakeup more?
I mean, when I was in high school I had to be out the door by 6:30ish every.single.day and I don't remember being tired. ha. I am suuuuure that I was, but I don't remember feeling like it.
Man oh man. This late 20s business is rough. ;)
(I kid. I kid.)
I am getting a little drained from the blogging world these days.  I feel like I am not receiving much from it.  Is it me?  Is it what I am choosing to read?  I have done a bit of purging of some blogs and such... I think it's helped.  I think.
Because of that... I haven't written much of anything lately (partly due to #2), but I don't want to just add to the noise.  I realize that everyone can choose to read my blog or not, but still.
I dunno... something to ponder, yet again, about why exactly I am writing.
BUT! In exciting blogging news...
I had my ONE YEAR blogiversary on Tuesday! :)
I did nothing to celebrate, but I am working on some things.
Maybe a blog redesign?!
Maybe one of those posts that highlights different achievements, if you will, on your blog?! Different, of course, than my refection of my year in real life. :)
Wait and see...
Ok, so I la la la la LOVE Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Like, adore them.
BUT... Starbucks (and anywhere else) does not have non-dairy options that are NOT soy.  They call the allergy flag (they do... I have emailed them).  I mean, COME ON!
Ugh. Anyway... so, I have to come up with another way to get my fill.
It is September and all I want is ALL THINGS PUMPKIN!
You can take the girl away from Fall, but you cannot take the love of Fall out of the girl!

Ok... I digress.  I was satisfied for a bit with a black coffee, and two pumps of the pumpkin spice syrup, and then adding my own milk.  It was fine.  Then I thought that I might need to invest in my own frother so that I can enjoy the latte at home.  But, it was more of a passing thought.
THEN! I saw the Pumpkin Spice Via packets. YES! It's not the same, at all, but they are still yum-o!
I tried it with warm almond milk... blah! Not impressed.  I will have to try the vanilla almond milk, maybe?  OR... coconut milk. Duh.  I was just reading Sarah's (Amongst Lovely Things) post and she uses coconut milk AND has a handy-dandy frother!! :)  Not expensive, and easy to use?!
Yes, please!! :)
Because I am in the car so much lately... I have been listening to Catholic radio a lot.  The FM stations, not on satellite, although that would be nice.
Anywho... it's been great!  I have been learning a lot.  It's not always very engaging, but for the most part I am really interested in the topics that are discussed.
Yesterday there was an interview with Dr. Edward Sri about his new book, Walking with Mary.  It sounds like a very cool book.  I am always in need of getting to know Mary better!
So, isn't it funny when I am reading Rakhi's 7QTs, and she mentions that her hubby is giving AWAY a copy of the book?! :)
Go check it out, if you want to know more... and don't enter to win! (I really want to win! ha)

Well, that's all from over here.  I guess I had a lot more to say than I thought.
That's always how it happens! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I hear you with #4! The only blogging I have been able to do lately is NAS and 7QT link up's. It disappoints me because I used to feel more inspired to write original pieces that I thought of all by little old self!! Hopefully I'm not adding to the noise!

  2. Lots of my favorite bloggers have been particularly quiet lately and I've done the same -- purged. Rethinking what I want to look at; what I want to read ...

  3. #2 I agree! Heck right now I'm only working twice a week (Tues and Fri) and Friday when I get home I am BEAT and want to do nothing!! I have no idea how I did it in high school either...adrenaline? I hate getting old.

    I feel the same way and am with Claire that NAS and 7QT and link-ups is most of what I do lately and I hate it :( but I get overwhelmed and when people give me the topics it's way easier for me to blog than come up with something from scratch! Oh well.

  4. If these comment comes up multiple times, I apologize. #4, I completely understand. That's a bummer that you don't like the coffee plus syrup PSL look alike. This past weekend I had black coffee, with a shot of the pumpkin spice and more cream than I would typically put in coffee and I think I found a perfect combo for me. I don't like sweet coffee and the dairy upsets my stomach so I am loving it! If you need more good Catholic stuff to listen to I suggest downloading the Lighthouse Media app on which you can download the various talks. They are $2-3 each but I listen to them over and over again.

  6. I have to get up at 5:30 as well for work, and was definitely feeling it hardcore for a while! My body is slowly adjusting and it is getting easier, but I am just wiped out if I'm not sleeping by 10:30 at the latest. So you should adjust eventually! Just make sure you're getting enough sleep and eating properly etc. :) But I usually don't want to go out on Friday nights either after working all week. It's more like I want to hibernate and catch up on reading/blogging/just sit and watch a movie lol. AND I share your LOVE of all things fall! It really is the best :)

  7. 3 Researches SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually get rid of fat by eating coconut fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medicinal magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
