Except for a couple very tiring days, I think it was a pretty good week. And because I skipped a week, I’m including a couple things from last week. Check out the things that made me happy in the last two weeks:
1. The Big Sick
Best movie I’ve seen all year! Watched this last weekend and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Especially great because it’s based on a true love story. It’s hard to find a comedy based on a true story. A no-frills movie, just a good story, real life, comedy and some drama. It was refreshing.
2. Cheap mangoes
Last weekend, I went grocery shopping and couldn’t believe the mangoes were 4 for $1. They weren’t my favourite kind, (I prefer the smaller yellow ones over the bigger red ones), but it was the cheapest I’ve seen them during my whole time in the USA (8 years!).
So I actually wrote the last paragraph on Friday, and the next day I went back to the grocery store and found the yellow mangoes 3 for $1! Haha. Still a great price, and you bet I got me some. (I go grocery shopping once a week on the weekends). Mango is my favourite fruit by the way.
3. Homemade cookies

I got all my chores done too early today and I really wanted to go out for a walk but it's frickin 100F degrees out, completely sunny, and with an extreme UV index. So instead I turned up the oven to 350F and baked oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies. I really could eat the whole batch right now in one sitting. #cookies #cookiemonster #texas #homemade #glutenfree #vegan #yum #toohot #summer #chocolate #sweettooth #chocoholic
I really love cookies. And brownies. I made brownies recently, but I hadn’t made cookies in a long time.
4. Brunch, bakery, and gelato on Saturday
We went to three of my favourite places in Austin in one day. Started with brunch at my favourite brunch place, then a pit stop at my favourite bakery, and after grocery shopping we went to get some gelato at one of my two favourite gelato places in Austin. Yummies all around.
The photo is from a different day at the same place. This time I got pistachio and dark chocolate. SO good.
5. A good night’s sleep!
I woke up on Sunday morning (today) so happy about getting a good night’s sleep in such a long while. Somehow, I went through the night without pain and felt rested. I did wake up a couple times but it’s impossible for me to go a full night without waking up. Do people actually do that?
6. A GIF
This GIF made my day. “Sharing is caring.”
Have a great week!
Have a great week! And I hope you enjoy the summer a lot more than I do. We’ve got several months ahead.
