A Great New Book Plus Takeout

Happy Royal Wedding day! Are you watching? I’m typing up this post while I watch. Kate looks amazing and she had a baby 25 days ago…goals my friends. GOALS. Meghan is going to get out of the car at any second so I’m going to try and get this typed up and ready to go. Have a great day 🙂


Friday started out with some puppy cuddles before I hopped in the shower. Thank goodness it was a Friday since the weather was a tad chilly. Well high 50s/low 60s but after some 80+ degrees days that felt cold! Company sweatshirt for the outfit win. For breakfast, I scrambled some eggs and had an oatmeal muffin on the side.


During lunch at work, I started a new book. Secrets She Kept by Cathy Gohlke is a historical fiction novel. The one part is about Lieselotte, a German living in Berlin during World War II, whose father rises in the ranks of the Nazi party. Fast forward thirty years, and her daughter, Hannah, discovers upon her mother’s death that she actually has family in Germany. Hannah heads to Berlin to learn more about her mother. It’s a great book so far. There’s lot of twists and turns and I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

After work, I headed to the grocery store to pick up a few things for the week before heading home. Alex and I leashed Bailey up for a walk and to try some obedience training outside. The dang wind ruined that plan but we got a little bit of training in and she’s getting better. When we got home, I read some more on the couch while Alex worked a bit.

Chinese Takeout

For dinner, we ordered in Chinese food. We got some pork fried rice, cold sesame noodles, pork dumplings, and chicken with hot pepper sauce and peanuts. We probably could have ordered half of it and been totally satisfied but oh well. Leftovers are always delicious! After dinner, we hung out on the couch and watched The Office before heading to bed.

Question of the day: What did you have for dinner last night?

  1. sounds like a good day. that book you are reading sounds very similar to the one I’m reading right now, not the same, but similar. last night we had honey bourbon pork (I used the honey bourbon chicken recipe on pork). it tasted totally difference. I did cook it in the crock pot so that may have had a role in the taste difference as well… oh well. Hope you take a nap today since you were up at the crack of dawn to see the wedding


    1. It was a pretty good day. I can’t wait to see what book you’re reading in the review. That sounds delicious! I’ve been meaning to try that recipe out. I only woke up 20ish minutes earlier than I was planning on so it wasn’t bad at all. I may nap though just because lol


      1. Lol I’m always about comfort at work now that I teach grade one. When I taught high school I got to dress up more, but now it’s wash and wear wveryday


  2. sounds like a very intriguing book! I watched the Royal Wedding this morning and it did not disappoint!!! For dinner last night, I had leftovers and snacks at a birthday party


    1. It definitely counts! I saw a bunch of people posting while watching it at the gym or while working out at home. Thai sounds so good! I was just telling Alex how we need to find a good place to get pad Thai from.
