When Friday is never your actual Friday, you get pretty excited about having the weekend off (from one job at least). Tomorrow I head to Watkins Glen for Farm Sanctuary’s Celebration For The Turkeys. I was kind of hoping it would be warmer this year (last year was frigid) but I think temperatures are supposed to drop tonight so I will be freezing again. No matter, the good vegan vibes and food are heart warming enough for my soul. As I type this, Sterling has begun to climb over my face…he does not like it when I blog and ignore him.
Without any other ramblings (till the end) here are my weekly favorites:

1.) Because it’s been so warm here lately, I have been sweating a lot through the night. When I get hot, I tend to dream very vivid and sometimes emotionally taxing dreams. This week I have been yelled at by my mom for not eating eggplant, stole a computer and blamed someone else for it and left the oven on all day, skyrocketing our heating bill and putting me in poverty. Sleep is stressful!
2.) It is my best friend and roommate’s birthday on Monday so on Sunday we are heading to a restaurant to celebrate! She is the best and called ahead to make sure there were vegan options. I am so blessed to have a person like her in my life.
3.) My sister is running the Philly half marathon this weekend and I am really excited for her. She invited me to go down with her, but I am volunteering on Saturday and working/partying on Sunday so I could not. She is nervous but I know she will PR and have a great time! They are calling for snow though…
4.) I have decided to make sweet potato casserole and chocolate banana brownies for my bosses Thanksgiving next week. I got the recipe from a new podcast called Teach Jasmin To Cook Vegan. It is an Our Hen House podcast spin off. It was highly entertaining during my long run this week. Jasmin is fabulous!
5.) Sterling is meowing really loud right now which means I should pay attention to him. This is why I would be a bad parent, I think I would be really irresponsible. Like “yea babe cry for a couple more minutes, I have to finish this blog.” Not a good thing.
Your most fun workout!
