Sorry For What I Said When it Was Winter


My April freebies are here...better late than never. I'm sorry for the things I said when it was winter...if only winter would just fucking end already. This roller coaster of weather has my emotions doing the same thing. I love the sun one day and hate the frost the next. As I continue to barrage my brain with architecture related bits of knowledge, bask in my latest creation!

I've moved on from construction documents, specifications and contracts, but my love affair continues with planning, programming and project management. Keep your eyes posted on my FacebookInstagramPinterest and Twitter for shares of old posts, recipes that I'm trying, the occasional quick update and my resurfacing in the spring/summer. I've prepped some posts ahead of time and I'm full of ideas, fresh recipes and tips and tricks that have kept me fed and clothed through this journey. Until I get it typed up and shared, enjoy my April freebies as consolation!

What I'm Eating

Meal prepping dinners is fantastic...until the freezer runs empty! Thank god for my Instacart Express subscription (free grocery deliveries on orders of $35). I haven't set foot in a grocery store since before I started studying for the A.R.E. back in January. Since the freezer has gone bare...this month we're cooking up lots of sheet tray and one pan recipes and hopefully grilling!

Where I'm Going

  • Still crazy! And I'm driving myself there.
    With an additional 25+ hours of work a week studying, I have no free time. If it wasn't for my husband, I'd have been fired and shipped off to a nudist colony months ago. What are your tricks for tackling the laundry pile? A little bit a day or all over the weekend?

What I'm Doing

  • Counting down the final days to my second ARE!
  • Going off the grid to study, study, study (this post and a few others was written weeks ago and scheduled to auto publish) - if its not architecture, its not on my to-do list.
  • Planning and prepping everything ahead. My queues are loaded and ready to fire off interesting finds and relevant reshares. Watch my FacebookInstagramPinterest and Twitter!
  • Using my Happy Planner to keep my sanity, meal prep, set goals and track my progress.
  • Meal prepping and crock potting my way through studying! I have the best husband and thanks to a year of Terra's Kitchen, he has the confidence to get dinner on the table when I just can't get my act together. Gotta keep my brain fed.
