One of our chickens was killed by a rodent a few months ago, and after the death, the rest of the girls stopped laying. Which took them out of "productive farm animals" and into "annoying, stinky, loud, expensive birds." Luckily last week they started laying again, so we've been once again enjoying fresh eggs in as many meals as possible!
I ordered the Sidewinder Sweater with some Shopbop credits, as I've been on the hunt for a good turtleneck sweater. Let's hope this is the one. Oh! And also I ordered some sandals for my tropical trips this winter/spring, but they haven't arrived yet. If you remember, they were the one thing I said I could buy in my January goals post.
Basically every favorite outfit lately has been a combination of: Paige Denim (either black or distressed blue), BP Trolley Booties (either gray or cognac leather) and a top. And that top has typically been in sweater form, the looser the better. Winter uniform, anyone?
I finished A Spool of Blue Thread this week and have moved on to book #3 of January, so I'm happy to say my goal of 2 books is complete! I liked the book, but had a hard time getting into it - and then every time I'd pick it back up, I had a hard time remembering what had just happened. Maybe just distracted from work, but maybe just because it wasn't as engaging as I'd usually like a book to be.

I've amazed myself with the ability to take a photo every single day, and Trav has been a great reminder on the days that I forget. Check them all out using the hashtag #brianas366
I've also started using an app called 1 Second Everyday, which allows you to save one second of video each day. I'm loving the result so far and can't wait to have a year's worth. For those of you who are pregnant or have little ones, I think it would be a great app to watch that belly, or that baby, grow through one second of video each day!
If all goes well, I'll have a photo a day from this year and a second of video per day from this year - what a fun thing to look back on. :)
Coming up next
We have our annual sales conference this week, so posting around here will be lighter than normal. Expect a work outfit or two and that's all! And don't forget, you can still link up for this month's Third Thursday Threads!
