On the weekends, I tend to wake up late and start the day with a smoothie. Sometimes it’s a breakfast bowl, like the Apple Pie Granola Smoothie Bowl, and sometimes it’s a quick smoothie before my workout, like this Cherry Berry Smoothie.
I picked up he’s Gone by Deb Caletti because I was a bit intrigued by marriage thrillers.
It’s the weekend (almost … or does Friday count?), which means it’s time to try new wine (or make a cocktail) and share my favorite links from this week with you.
“Audiobooks should not count on the same list as total books read for the year. When someone says they read x number of books last year, do you assume they mean physically read the book? Or is it okay if this number includes listening to an audio book?… Reading is hard. You have to concentrate. You have to be intentional about it. You usually can’t be doing something else while you’re reading, so it’s a lot more work to actually finish a book. Plus, if I learned anything from reading What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, it’s that we’re all losing our ability to concentrate on actual books, so reading is an important skill we all need to continue to practice.
An audio book, on the other hand, you can do while doing basically anything – driving to work, on a road trip, cooking dinner, exercising. Audio books are still reading, but I don’t think it’s reading in the same sense as reading a book is. ” (via The Lady Okie)

Every day for lunch, I pack a salad.On tap this week is the easiest salad you could ever make – a Chopped Bell Pepper Salad with Simply Dressed Pomegranate Vinaigrette Dressing.
