Any Serial fans? I was addicted to Season One, listened to the podcast in about two weeks (it had already fully aired) and then listened to every related podcast on the Internet–and then every podcast about those podcasts. I was thrilled that he’s getting a new trial, because, although I’m not totally convinced he’s innocent…the Nisha Call. And Best Buy. And the phone towers. You can’t have ALL THOSE CLUES that he may be innocent and just let him sit in jail right?
Who knows, maybe he’s a sociopath and just wanted to be famous. But…Best Buy…
Serial Season 2? It was interesting, especially as a military wife. I have my opinion on what happened, but I actually liked hearing both sides of the argument. The whole podcast was really informative, about how or government works, and doesn’t work–mostly doesn’t–military protocol and how the opinions of a few can shape the masses. But, the whole time I’ve been listening to it, something just seems off. I can’t tell if it’s that I think Sarah Koenig, the host, is a little too fond of Bowe Bergdahl, or maybe he really was crazy and never should have been in the army in the first place, making what happened seem even more strange, and pointless. I’m not done with it yet, so maybe by the end it will all make sense. Just like Season One. Where still NOTHING MAKES SENSE.
On the other hand, Pretty Little Liars season 7b or whatever is getting GOOD. Sorry not sorry. PLL forever. Or forevA…
John discovered an ORGANIC VEGAN DONUT shop in downtown Charleston. I’ve never been a huge donut fan, but I don’t think we can resist going to this place. The last time I ate a donut was during my last pregnancy when I had an insane one-time donut craving. That donut has satisfied me for almost two years, time for another.
Pre-donuts, I’ll be running my first ever pregnancy race this weekend! It’s a beach 10k, literally on the sand, on Isle of Palms. Given the heat, and the sand, and the giant belly, I’m not expecting much, but I’m excited to wear my Oiselle jersey and run somewhere besides loops in my neighborhood.
We finally tried the Daily downtown last weekend. The food was really good–my avocado toast was crisp and thick with avocado and my kale lemonade was mostly cayenne pepper (which I loved) and the atmosphere was cute, a hip coffee shop meets city market. But the lack of seating did not work well with a toddler. This was our table.
This was my view driving home yesterday, before I hit completely stopped traffic.
And this was my breakfast on Wednesday. I found a millet, oat, quinoa microwaveable cereal at Whole Foods. It’s incredible. Although, there’s more fruit, pecans, raisins and coconut sugar than cereal here.
John has accused me of buying two many shoes lately, so earlier this week I started sending him links to the most hideous shoes I could find, asking if he could get me a good deal. Shoes like knee high gladiators (no offense), saying I had no shoes to wear and I really needed new work shoes. It was hilarious, and when I finally told him I was kidding he said that he didn’t want to offend me for my bad shoe choices. My guess is he was referring to these:
My first pair of mom shoes. I don’t care. They’re the most comfortable thing next to walking on actual marshmallows. John said they would be fine to wear to work. My coworker basically said they were terrible. And I say, can I get one in every color?
Since I’ve been called out for my shoe addiction, I’ve actually refrained from clothes shopping for a while. Until I saw this dress.
The day after I bought it they had a buy one get a free shirt deal. Which I missed. Of course, the shirt wouldn’t fit me anyway because my belly has grown exponentially in the past couple days. Dresses are the only thing in my non-maternity closest that’s that still fit. So my purchase was totally justified.
Have a great weekend! I’ll be back next week with less randomness, a race recap and some pregnancy running tips next week!
