    1. I got new headshots done last week with my friend, Anna Grace, and she already finished the photos! She blogged some of her favorites on her blog and I’ll be blogging my favorites next week!
    2. Did you catch the post on how you can get your own SIGNED copy of my cookbook?? You don’t want to miss the opportunity!
    3. Anyone else find Amazon’s #primeday way underwhelming? I get the marketing hype but at least live up to it!

    1. I’m going to Bali (!!) with my friend, Amanda, next month and I’m kiiiiiiinda freaking out about the volcano that is erupting there. I mean, I guess getting stranded in Bali isn’t horrible ;) but it’s still freaky if it’s still erupting and the ash cloud is lingering around. Also, I tend to be a 0 to 60 kind of person so I automatically thought “Pompeii” when I heard about this volcano.
    2. When was the last time you went laser tagging? I feel like I’m dating myself and transporting back to 1990. My coworkers and I are going laser tagging tomorrow morning. I can’t believe it’s still a thing, haha
    3. Has anyone seen the Minions movie? That’s next on our list!
    4. I’m going to have the option to work from home 3 days a week soon but that requires an office-share. Right now everyone has their own offices (yes, with a door you can close!) but if you do 3-week telecommute, you have to share an office with someone else. Right now, my schedule is every other Friday I’m off and every other Friday I work from home. Would you commit to an office share if that meant you could work from home 3 days a week? I’m leaning towards it because let’s be real…yoga pants and rolling out of bed without a commute sounds pretty amazing.
