Good Morning! How’s the week going for you so far? I really can’t believe it’s almost over. Slowww down, April!
I’m popping in a little pouty, as the fur kids and I just said goodbye to Scott for the weekend. He’s heading overseas for a work event in Barcelona, Spain! I know. I was upset when he didn’t pack me in his suitcase too.
I wanted to soak in as much time as I could with him this morning, so I spent the majority of it helping him pack and running last minute errands for the trip. Things started off extra sweet this morning when I came downstairs to a cut in half mini-melon!
We picked it up on our trip to the marketplace over the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh and juicy it was five days later. I wrapped half of it up for later, but the two of us abandoned any fancy table manners and dove right into the other one, spoons first.
Maybe I’ll actually slice it up next time… maybe.
While we were chatting over coffee, I noticed an incessant beeping noise coming from the den and knew it needed to be dealt with before he left.
All right, I’ll admit it… I typically get out of doing as much handy work as I can. I love decorating and putting shelves together, and I keep the house pretty clean, but when it comes to actually fixing things, I’m the worst. I just have no interest.
I asked Scott to take a look at the fire alarm and instead he got a step stool and had me go at it. I felt like I was being tested for something. While the looks I gave him weren’t the most pleasant, I’m actually glad he did it. Changing a fire alarm battery is really simple, and now I know how to stop the beeping myself. #winning
As expected, I was still hungry after the battery nonsense and quickly whipped up a couple of yogurt bowls to complete our breakfast.
Plain Greek yogurt mixed with honey and topped with fresh blackberries, coconut shavings and flax seeds.
Sounds random, but I assure you it tasted great!
Before I go, I wanted to address an issue I have occasionally been having on Bloglovin’. For those of you who don’t use the site, it is an easy way to keep track and stay on top of all your favorite blogs in one spot. Thank you to all who follow HWG!
I am one of those people who follow my own blog just to make sure everything appears right. Every time I publish a post, I take a scan on Bloglovin’ and make sure it’s there. Well, yesterday my post never showed up, and for the remainder of the day I couldn’t help but to keep refreshing my page and huffing and puffing over it. It was super frustrating.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed my new posts show up in real time, but if they don’t I apologize and will work on getting them up again.
First world problems. I know.
Well friends, I hope you have a great little Thursday! I’ll be back after lunch.
As soon as you said Fire Alarm, you have to know what I immediately thought of..Oh Mickey your so fine, your so fine you blow my mind hey mickey! hey mickey! hahaha
Hahaha, of course you did! xo
I purposefully made sure to wait for your post on bloglovin today after yesterday and it successfully did post today!! :)) Which I’m sure you have already seen hehe. Hope Scott has an amazing time, I know he will! My dad did a similar thing to me with the fire alarm before…it’s crazy it really is but yet it seems so hard until you do it! lol
Woo hoo! Can’t wait for our bday girl day tomorrow! 🙂
Bloglovin can be frustrating, for real. ha.
Be right back, I gotta go buy a mini melon.
🙂 Glad I’m not the only one with the love/hate relationship.

Yum to the melon and the yogurt bowl!
I’ve been having Bloglovin’ problems too. All the sudden, now it doesn’t display an image with my post and just shows a text snippet. Annoying! I saw this post on my Bloglovin’ feed so I think your issue corrected itself 🙂
