1. Swimsuits with long sleeves
It’s like having a built-in sun protection shirt! I technically don’t need one because I’m allegedly trying to not add more things to my closet and already have 1) a swimsuit that I don’t hate, and 2) a long-sleeve swimming shirt for sun protection, but still, I want. Free People has a bunch of cute ones!
2. Early Aughts dancehall music
I’ve been listening to a lot of it lately. Who knew one could be so moved by Sean Paul’s “Gimme the Light”? LOL!
3. The show “Hacks” on HBO
This show about a seasoned Vegas comedian and an up-and-coming writer from Los Angeles cracks me up. It’s also surprisingly touching at times, too. You’ll be fan-girling actress Jean Smart by the end of it.
4. Printing out recipes
Lately I’ve been printing out recipes I make for dinner. It’s different from what I usually do, which is to pull a recipe up on my phone, make it once, and then forget about it.
You know what? Having a physical piece of paper works so much better for me. It really helps me to have a space to write detailed notes about what worked and what didn’t. I also like storing the recipes in a folder in my kitchen which I can easily grab whenever I need it.
I guess I’m old school like that!
Speaking of dinner recipes, I just made this Thai basil chicken dish (I subbed the chicken for shrimp) and it was a hit with the fam-bam.
I wish I could play it, but I’m terrible when it comes to sports with fast-moving projectiles, and I don’t love the thought of other sweaty people all up in my space, bumping me from all angles. It’s a lot of fun to watch though. Side note: go Warriors!
