Happy Tuesday. Hope you guys enjoyed my weekend wrap up post yesterday. Before I get into today’s post, I figured it’s my public duty to tell ya’ll to watch Squid Game on Netflix. We’ve had several friends tell us how good it is, so we started it this weekend. It’s pretty interesting – kind of like a very different take…

killens in the heights

Happy Monday! I’m starting my morning off with a cup of (you guessed it) Pumpkin Pie Spice Nespresso – with a side of about four meetings. Anyone else have more meetings since you moved to remote work? I had an equally restful and busy weekend over here. My house did not get decorated for fall, but that means it’s 100%…

Happy Friday, friends! I’m headed down my office in the Medical Center in a bit to meet one of my co-workers to help her clean out her office. We are all slowly making that transition to working from home one hundred percent of the time forever. So, I’m up early this morning trying to get through some emails. I’ve got…

Happy Thursday, friends. If dogs aren’t your thing, then feel free to come back tomorrow, when I’ll have more “human-friendly” content. But, if you’ve been reading here for any amount of time, you’ll know that Aaron and I welcomed two cute golden retriever puppies in June. And, well, now that they are just over five months old, I thought it…

Instant Pot Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken

Happy Tuesday, friends. I’ve been seeing this Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken Instant Pot recipe make the rounds on social media, so I decided to give it a try. Disclaimer, this one took kind of awhile – and had a lot of ingredients, so it’s not one of my easier meals to make. It takes about an hour from start to finish…

Happy Friday, Friends. I hope your morning started off well! It’s a rainy morning here in Htown, which is one of my favorite ways to work. I’ve got a candle going, and I have a warm cup of coffee and my breakfast. That’s some greek yogurt, with blueberries and granola. Delish! I’m sitting here working on emails, and I’ve got…

I received an email today that made me pause for a brief second. The subject of the email was “Take Care of Yourself,” and it was addressed to my entire Division. You see, we have wonderful IT people who keep things running seamlessly at work. It’s a job that’s often under appreciated – and met with frustrated customers. Add in…

Bachelor in Paradise Recap

I’m not even sure what week of Paradise we are in, but what you need to know, is that this is the second to the last episode. And there is a lot of Bachelor in Paradise to unpack here (it was a three (!!!!) hour episode after all). So, we better just get right down to the nitty gritty. You…
